What We Do

With everything we do, we aim to challenge the status quo. 

We aim to support our clients to think differently.  The rapid rate of disruption we face in our economy requires us all to do so.

Our clients have entrusted us with C-level and Board searches for more than 25 years and we are proud of our track record of success – our growth is evidence of the lasting relationships our team builds with their clients and candidates alike. Our contemporary approach allows us to firstly think as laterally as possible as we partner with you to rigorously workshop your current vacancy using a tested and proven framework. We take the time to understand your organisation’s journey and story so we can meaningfully inform the market about the opportunity, always mindful of the role we play of ambassadors of your brand.
Our micro-specialisation in our key industry verticals, and our outstanding research team, ensures we unearth hidden talent on your behalf and we strive to ensure you are presented with diverse talent pools. It is something we care deeply about. The benefit that comes from the size of our National Executive & Boards team is that we will know not just what’s on public record about the leaders you are interested in, but we have unique access to reputational information, guarding you against costly mis-hires.

We apply tools at the shortlisting stage that assess of our candidate’s aptitude (verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning) and personality profile,  to identify potential and a track record for high performance. Our approach also gives you critical insight regarding the “fit” of the candidate. Clients we have worked with have advised us our multiple data points throughout the selection process gave them confidence and peace of mind they were making outstanding appointments. 

Our work doesn’t stop at the offer and appointment stage; we engage with our clients to plan for on-boarding, ensuring plans are in place to socialise new leaders with their key stakeholder groups, and that 3 and 6 month performance plans are clear and in place setting our leaders up for every success.
