Executive and Non-Executive Directors

The continual challenge of doing more with less

Overstretched budgets, the growing demands of an aging population, the relentless drive towards greater efficiency, closing workforce gaps, transforming services, today’s public sector organisations need leaders who are not only strategically and commercially astute, but also tenacious, resilient, and driven by the desire to make a genuine difference.

Making the right connections

As a specialist search and selection consultancy, we have built up extensive networks of leadership talent. And because these demanding roles require such unique skill sets, we also have the value-added option of delving into a deep pool of 'passive' talent to find the exact fit.

Diversity & Inclusion

The case for difference and diversity as a necessary, creative, and complementary force in the leadership mix has been clearly established. As such, we offer best-practice D&I consultancy to ensure our clients build progressive, productive senior leadership teams that are reflective of the communities they represent.

A holistic approach to attraction and development

Our support is so much more than simply leadership search and selection. Whether through succession planning, assessment and profiling, coaching and mentoring, and training and development, we work closely with you to secure the leadership pipeline to meet your challenges and ambitions.

Assessment centre support

When getting it wrong can cost as much as three times the role’s annual salary, our bespoke assessment centres help you get it right first time, every time. Offering accurate and predictive insight into a candidate’s personality, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal style, we ensure a cultural as well as technical-capabilities-based fit.
