We are a long-established Executive Search and Talent Development firm based in central London, UK.  Founded in 1980, we joined AIMS International as a Founding Member in 1992 and, as a result, we offer our clients and candidates truly global support.


We work across a broad range of business sectors and functions delivering high quality and successful Executive Search, Talent Development and Leadership Consultancy services.


The key to our success is our unwavering client service – our rigour, professionalism and commitment to our clients ensures a smooth and successful process and outcome and has led to us building long lasting relationships with both clients and candidates.


We feel strongly that our business is not a transactional business, it is a relationship business.  As a trusted advisor, we make sure that we understand our clients’ goals, concerns and culture from the outset, so that we can place high quality candidates who not only deliver on those business needs, but also thrive within the clients’ culture.  This result not only adds significant value to a client’s business, but can also be transformative to the lives and careers of our candidates.

Our Services

We believe in what we do.


Key placements can positively transform an organisation:- our executive search services add significant value to our clients by helping them find and secure the right people, not just from a technical perspective but also from a values and team ‘fit’ perspective.  To us, this is the difference between placing a competent candidate and placing an outstanding leader. 


We also believe in how we do it.


Our executive search process ensures that our clients have a selection of top quality candidates to choose from.


We achieve this by applying rigour and creativity to our research process and a comprehensive evaluation of candidates to establish suitability both in respect of technical abilities and ‘fit to culture’.


Whilst our search process is creative and agile enough to overcome even the most complex of searches, our structured and professional approach eliminates bias so that we are able to present as diverse a shortlist of candidates as possible.


Having built close relationships with you and the candidate over the course of the search process, we don’t stop working once the preferred candidate is chosen – we continue to provide support to both you and the candidate throughout the on-boarding process to ensure as smooth a start as possible to this new chapter.

Is your organisation going through rapid transformation, either in response to its strategy, market pressures, or in order to adapt to life after Covid?


If the answer is YES to either of these questions, does your organisation:


  • Have the necessary skills at every level to enable the organisation to adapt to these changes?
  • Have competent line managers at every level who are able to help their Teams adapt to these changes?
  • Know how to retain key talent by ensuring their continued motivation during this period of change and beyond?

If you think that improvements could be made in these areas, then our Talent Development Programmes can help your organisation become better prepared to adapt to change and, as a result, better positioned for growth.
