  • Executive Search

    A market leader in executive search, we recruit across sector and function at board and senior management levels.

    We are the UK arm of Penrhyn International, ranked in the top 10 of global search firms, operating as a partnership of executive search firms sharing similar values and ethics.


    Our single focus has always been on the delivery of high quality executive search. Our activity is supported by diligent and imaginative research, undertaken by some of the most experienced professionals in the industry.


    We deliver to our clients shortlists of diverse, talented individuals, by always seeking to challenge the 'obvious choice'.
