Executive Search

Our industry experts go further and think more creatively to find excellent and diverse leadership talent to make each organisation the best it can be for the future.

Individually-tailored search bringing brilliance to the fore

Brilliant leadership is our business. We think and act differently as we recognise that each organisation is unique. We treat our clients and every search we undertake as an individual opportunity to find the best leaders out there. Our dedicated and detailed research and assessment methods, combined with our personal style of engagement ensures that we can bring forward a diverse mix of the best and most suitable leadership talent.

Trusted advisors who support you long-term

We are proud of our heritage and even more so of how we continue to evolve, diversify and innovate. We can only do this with the support and confidence of our clients, the majority of whom return to work with us again and again. They do this because they know we can be trusted. We pride ourselves on being advisors to individuals and organisations for the long term – not just the duration of a search. Our business model and cultural purpose encourages a true investment from our Partners who want to achieve the best and make the biggest difference, time and time again.

Our Difference

Search around the world Closer to home or further afield our experts seek out the very best talent
Bespoke research to diversify talent pools We’ve perfected our talent identification approach to enhance inclusivity
Multi-sector, multi-function expertise We know industries inside out and the functional leaders that support them
Success of the highest rate We deliver results consistently – as our 98% success rate shows

Sector wide, function deep

Our consultants are embedded sector-specialists who know their industries inside out. This experience is augmented with cross-sectoral access within our firm and through our global Panorama community. We put a genuine emphasis on thinking beyond siloed sector lines to bring our clients the most interesting and diverse leadership talent available.

We are a partnership business as we believe that this brings the best results for our clients and our people. From day one we get under the skin of each client organisation to understand their priorities, culture and needs. This depth of insight allows us to respond quickly to each client’s individual needs and bring them the best people for each role. We can flex with ease to undertake broad, national or global searches or to deliver a more discreet, targeted approach. Either way we ensure that every client has undivided attention and representation in the marketplace.

Inclusivity embedded

We have always put diversity and inclusion at the heart of our business and our robust and proven research methods enable us to deliver on this time and again. Our award-winning diversity initiatives help to embed more inclusive approach to leadership and provide opportunities to develop and progress talent.

A creative approach that delivers intriguing results

Our dedication to fresh research and real conversations means we remain relentlessly focused on results: we have an extraordinary 98% success rate.

Our in-house researchers work solely on one project at a time – this approach is a cornerstone of our business. We deliberately differ from the industry model where researchers work on multiple projects simultaneously, as we believe each search deserves individual attention.

Our researchers are empowered to think creatively and take the time to benefit from real and rich conversations with a broad range of people. Through this approach we find the individuals who bring the quality, authenticity and diversity needed at senior executive and non-executive levels.

Local insight, global perspectives

Our global community comprises over 200 search and leadership advisors in every developed and emerging market in the world. We collaborate closely with our international partners to maximise their local knowledge and networks to bring the additional input a search may need.

Our global community: Panorama

We treat every individual candidate as we should: individually

We want to get to know each and every candidate we work with. We are helping them make huge decisions which will impact them significantly as well as the organisations they join or lead. We believe that exceptional candidate care, careful attention to detail, honesty and close partnering are behaviours that should be expected when working with our Partners. We will always give honest and timely feedback. This doesn’t just go for our successful candidates; this is how we treat every candidate we work with.

We have all had to adapt in the past year, and it has not always been easy. We have worked hard to make the approach to search as seamless and successful as possible for our clients, candidates and colleagues.
