WHAT WE DO


Executive Search

We undertake searches at both Executive and Non-Executive level, across all of our sectors.  Our primary commitment is to provide you with the strongest possible shortlist, and we are confident of our ability to provide quality in the candidate field which is unequalled in our industry. This is achieved through rigour at all stages – ensuring that the job and person specification are accurate and appropriate, engaging in deep and exhaustive research, and assessing candidates with care and thoroughness.

 

We are also experienced in handling the advertisement and selection aspects of a campaign, from drafting copy, to placing the advertisement for a maximum impact, to handling candidates. We set high standards for responsiveness and will ensure that you as client are presented with outstanding professionalism.

 

Consulting and Leadership development

We work with clients to support leadership development, working at both individual and team level.  Although counter-intuitive to our business, one of our long term aims is to support clients in reducing their long-term dependence on executive search as a quick-fix solution to organisational change and development.

 

Our recent experience has included working with clients on a review of their organisational structure with a view to maximising potential for delivering strategy, a 360 degree review of a top team, and a cultural change initiative.

 

Governance Review

In all of our sectors, governance is becoming more and more critical, with boards of trustees/ governors and councils increasingly feeling the need to assume roles which are more akin to corporate boards. The roles of Chair, and Chair of Audit/Finance are becoming increasingly demanding, and the overall context for governance is maturing in terms of openness and working together. We offer a review process, focused on face-to-face interviews with board members as well as a questionnaire, which is oriented to ensuring that governance relationships work as effectively as possible.
