Global reach and radical impact

Confidence from the quality hallmarks of a global firm

Our systems, track record and brand recognition enable us to operate successfully across the globe. Our research capability is wide-ranging and always-on. Underpinned by leading-edge technology that provides a digital connection between us and our clients. Driving the communication and collaboration critical to a successful search outcome.

Our composure of approach, delivery completion rates, assignment pace and the innovation and diversity of our shortlists provide clients with the assurance of a quality outcome.

Innovation from the entrepreneurial spirit of a boutique

Firms like ourselves are shaking up the global search and talent advisory industry as clients increasingly seek to access big brand expertise without the big brand overhead or bureaucracy. We believe our agile, streamlined, integrated team approach is more efficient as:  

Our Partners are able to share knowledge and ideas more effectively and are motivated to collaborate to deliver a quality outcome

We are superbly agile and can adapt quickly to respond to changes in context or environment

We are flexible and focused on offering each client a tailored search solution bespoke to their needs

Our clients have access to more than one Partner to bring relevant additional insights and perspectives

Our researchers think laterally, cross disciplines and create provably more inclusive and innovative shortlists

We coordinate and launch far more quickly on international and domestic searches as we have no intra office sign-off, politics or bureaucracy


We assess, appoint and advise Chairs, Non-Executive Directors, Chief Executives and functional leadership across a diverse range of clients including public listed companies, government and the wider public sector, private equity, challenger brands, start-ups and mutuals.

At the heart of our search is the transference of knowledge and insight developed from the deep sector and functional expertise of our Partners. This enables us to provide a truly consultative approach to the development and execution of our client’s mandates

We believe that talent transcends traditional sectoral boundaries. Our Partners and Researchers work collaboratively to ensure our clients have access to the broadest and most diverse networks.

Our high levels of repeat mandates (over 78%) are proof of our belief that long-standing relationships, over transactional work, benefits all.
