Working together, experienced practitioners in each of these specialist areas take pride in offering integrated talent solutions to GatenbySanderson clients.

We hire people with a passion for finding and developing leaders who shape a better society, who are adept at advising clients within complex, fast-changing markets that are subject to high degrees of governance, external audit and public scrutiny.

The Leadership & Talent Consultancy has an outstanding national reputation with C-Suite clients through supporting and advising clients to deliver measurable and sustainable change. We do this through delivering high impact solutions across talent areas including executive and leadership assessment, top team and leadership development, succession planning, executive coaching and board review and development. The practice has doubled in size for the third year running and through this growth we have a fantastic new role opportunity for a Senior Consultant, Assessment and Leadership.
