Government & Public Sector

Inclusive leaders with public purpose.

Accredited by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), we are a preferred partner of the UK Government and key organisations across the public sector. Our success has been built on the depth of our networks across private, public and third sectors and our ability to move leaders across traditional sectoral boundaries, bringing expertise, insight and talent from commercial environments to organisations with public purpose. Our track record of delivery with inclusivity, transparency, integrity and efficiency has seen us developing strategic trusted partnerships across clients in Central Government Departments, Arm’s Length Bodies, Regulation, Local & Regional Government, Housing, Emergency Services and the NHS.  

What we do

Our team have over three decades of experience in the successful delivery of complex and highly sensitive senior appointments across government and the broader public sector. Key to this success is our ability to leverage our deep functional and sectoral networks, giving our clients access to diverse leaders in organisations and sectors that they would ordinarily be unable to reach. But our ability to reach these individuals is only the start. It is the time and resource we commit to supporting (and where appropriate, coaching) our candidates throughout the process – especially those from ‘out-of-sector’ – that really makes the difference.

We work in partnership with Government and the broader public sector on the full range of Board and Public Appointments. The diversity of our networks, and our investment in building board-ready talent pipelines, enables us to deliver shortlists that blend highly experienced portfolio holders through to the best of the new and emerging board talent.

Our work in identifying, engaging, assessing and maintaining contact with role specific pools of prospective candidates is valued by our clients. We provide the assurance of a high quality, geographically appropriate and widely diverse field of candidates ready to apply via fair and open competition when our clients are ready to commence a recruitment process. The insight we gain from the market and share with our clients ensures when the decision to go to market is taken that it is done with the maximum chance of success.

We pride ourselves on developing long term partnerships with our clients, providing ongoing support in the provision of a range of our services.

We know diversity is critical to the leadership capability and maturity in any organisation, and our track record shows we consistently outperform the market norms in creating diverse shortlists and have an exceptional history of placing diverse candidates into role.

We go further than the placing of candidates, working with our clients and candidates to support onboarding and early integration. By maintaining close relationships with all, we can support the building of greater mutual understanding of challenges and opportunities. By sharing this insight can develop thinking based on learned experience which then informs future campaigns.


We take our role as partners seriously, acknowledging the candidate journey begins with us. Our goal is to make this experience high-touch, well defined, seamless and hopefully a rewarding exercise for all candidates , whether successful or not.
