Who we are
We are experienced executive search consultants who have placed high-calibre individuals in senior roles across the UK, Europe and the USA.
Our team has a strong network of talented individuals across Asset and Wealth Management, Investment Management, Corporate & Investment Banking, Hedge Funds, VC, Private Equity, FinTech and CleanTech / ClimateTech.
What we do
We specialise in carrying out bespoke executive search campaigns for senior executives in the Financial Services, FinTech and CleanTech sectors. We provide HR and employment advisory services to help companies in aligning people, structure and processes appropriately and equitably. We offer support with hard-to-fill mid-career placements for our long-standing clients.
We are passionate about the work we do and the impact we have on clients and our candidates. Our purpose is to enable organisations to flourish by helping them identify, recruit and retain the best people.
Working closely with clients – from start-ups through to rapid-growth and more mature organisations – we take the time to learn and understand their growth strategy and talent needs in order to provide a seamless end-to-end executive search strategy to overcome recruitment challenges.
We treat candidates as individuals, not just a CV; our role is to be a strategic and consultative partner who is committed to building long-term relationships. We appreciate their career challenges and champion their wants and needs towards finding life-fulfilling career advancement.
What we offer:
Along with executive search, we also offer strategic consulting solutions for businesses seeking assistance with HR strategy and operations.
For ourselves, our clients, and the overall market, we are committed to creating more diverse and equitable workplaces. We approach our activities in a manner that addresses inclusion in both our overall search strategy and candidate shortlists, and in response to client requests to increase diversity in their respective organisations.

The advantages of partnering with a boutique executive search firm include:
You will liaise directly with the principals throughout the search, from research to closing. Your principal consultant’s advice and guidance will be fully tailored to your organisation’s needs in order to successfully find, recruit, and onboard the best candidates.
Your search project is prioritised:
You will have total transparency of your assignment at all times as evidenced by regular update calls and progress reports: we are always responsive and contactable.
We represent your brand:
Candidate outreach is conducted by the principals.
We become an advocate and a soundboard for your brand, reputation and wider business profile across the market which aims to attract and engage the best talent.
We don’t face the same difficulties or “off-limits” restrictions that many of the larger executive search agencies are bound to, which allows us to be much more agile and comprehensive in our approach.
