Who We Are

Trusted by the world’s leading firms, we work in partnership with clients and candidates providing thoughtful counsel, market-leading knowledge and insight, and an innovative approach to search.   

Our approach is based on meticulous listening, a rich understanding of our sectors, clients and candidates and our ambition to be the best at what we do.  This is invaluable to our clients’ Boards and senior management teams, and to our individual candidates, who all know we are acting in their best interests in the context of their long-term career ambitions. 

Never complacent, we innovate to maintain a competitive advantage; constantly asking how we can be better, do better and add more value.  We are agile and quick to change, always drawing on and learning from the expertise and acumen of our teams and networks in UK and New York in our drive to relentlessly improve. 

What We Do 

Our talent consulting team identify, manage and appoint hard-to-find and in-demand talent who thrive in our clients’ cultures.  Marrying a holistic and data led view of the market with a detailed understanding of each client and candidate, and what they are looking for, we seamlessly communicate, execute and deliver each and every time.
