Who We Are
Saxton Bampfylde is a top UK search and leadership consulting firm with global reach and a modest mission to change the world, by changing leaders in interesting and important organisations.
Since our establishment in 1986, we have stayed true to our founding principles, namely our dedication to a uniquely diligent and thorough search process that is different from our competitors, and our commitment to providing the highest quality service when advising on board level roles for our clients. In 2014, Saxton Bampfylde became an employee-owned organisation. The business is held in trust for our Partners – currently a team of over 100 – with oversight from an employee-elected Trustee Board.
As well as placing leaders in interesting and important organisations, we challenge ourselves to find individuals from different backgrounds and experiences to join our team. We strive to build and maintain a workplace where each team member is listened to and feels they can contribute to their fullest. We value each other as individuals worthy of respect and care, and behave towards everyone with honesty, discretion, tolerance, and fair-mindedness. It is important to us to grow, support, and celebrate the diverse voices of all our Partners as an Employee-Owned Business. We have a fantastic book club, an enthusiastic choir, and a very active charity committee – having a strong culture is at the heart of who we are as a firm.
Our Partners are passionate about widening access, and using our skills and expertise to support others. In the past year, 51% of our placed candidates have been women, and 13% ethnically diverse. Our award-winning REACH mentoring programme supports Civil Service employees with disabilities in maximising their career potential. Our Partners also act as mentors for those from diverse backgrounds to help them attain Board roles through the OnBoard programme. We also support survivors of sex trafficking through a partnership with Strength & Stem – a social enterprise that seeks to give survivors the skills and training to find work in the UK.
