Board & CEO Recruitment


Roles We Recruit For

We recruit for all board level roles. In particular our consultants have extensive experience recruiting for:

  • MD (Managing Director)
  • CEO (Chief Executive Officer)
  • COO (Chief Operating Officer)
  • CIO (Chief Information Officer)

The range of industries we have placed senior leaders into includes Financial Services, Consumer Goods, Technology Engineering & Industrial, Not For Profit, Healthcare, Technology and Defence.

Challenges We Solve

There are significant challenges for boardrooms in the current economic climate. From developing strategies to best harness innovation and technology, protecting against an increase in cyber attacks, managing shareholder activism and monitoring company performance – the modern boardroom needs a diverse and experienced selection of members.

Many of the businesses we work with are looking for modern board level executives who are not only able to bring deep expertise within their functional specialism, but also help the board with governance, risk and crisis management and business transformation.

In addition to providing permanent board level executives via our search and headhunting service, we also help our clients by supplying interim CEOs, interim MDs, interim COOs, interim CIOs and interim CTOs who can bring a specific skill set or experiences to the organisation on a temporary basis. This could be in response to M&A activity or 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 temporary basis.

  • Overseen multi-million pound mergers and acquisitions
  • Strengthening functional teams at critical times
  • Dealing with private equity providers and venture capital firms
  • Supported management buyouts, buy-ins, and flotations
  • Orchestrating major corporate turnarounds
  • Nurturing 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.
