Leaders In UK & International Recruitment

Looking for a senior leader to help manage your business overseas or in the UK? We provide both interim management and permanent executive recruitment for companies recruiting executives for their international operations. With 22 offices in 6 countries around the world, our consultants' global network can help you find the right person for your next interim management or executive recruitment role.

Our International Expertise

We have an excellent record of success in meeting even the most challenging client brief, and recruiting for organisations who have come to us for their international recruitment needs wherever they are based across the globe. See our global client list for more details of who we work with and details of our previous experience.

We are networked with international senior leaders

Our recruitment consultants can work remotely with clients based around the world, and can help businesses acquire the talent they need in whatever country they are looking to grow.

Challenges We Solve

Many of the businesses we work with are looking to setup or expand their operations in the UK or Europe. Using our international networks, we are able to successfully supply leadership teams including Country Heads, Country General Managers, Managing Directors, Business Development Directors and Sales Directors to build, grow and expand that businesses presence in a new territory.

Other international businesses we work with are looking for an individual from the UK to work overseas. Our consultants are experienced at re-location and the logistical framework that needs to be navigated, and can assist your business in locating a high quality senior leader who is willing and able to work overseas.

Finally we also help our clients by supplying interim CEOs, MDs or Non Executive Directors who can bring a specific skill set to the organisation on a short term basis. These individuals are able to bring their experiences to bear (such as M&A) for businesses who are going through a transitional period and are looking for individuals who have been on that journey before and can help guide them on a short term basis.

We have supported international clients on programmes such as:

  • Setting up operations within new countries and territories
  • Re-locating senior leaders from one county to another
  • Overseeing multi-million pound mergers, acquisitions and expansions
  • Strengthening functional teams at critical times
  • Working with private equity providers and venture capital firms
  • Supported management buyouts, buy-ins, flotations and IPOs
  • Growing SMEs

Our senior leader recruitment team brings their knowledge, experience and network to any project – ensuring you get the right person on time and on budget.
