Working with us


In 15 years, we have grown from start up to be the UK’s number one Executive Recruiter across public and not-for profit organisations, employing 135 colleagues across the country. Our client consultants appoint to some of the highest-profile roles in public service. From multi million pound government departments and local authorities to regulators, health organisations and leading universities and international charities, the impact of our work touches every member of society.

We appoint to more senior roles in Local and Central Government, Health, Regulation and Not for Profit than any other headhunter. In Local Government we have managed 450 assignments in the last two years, actively work with 140 local authorities and related organisations. In Health, over the same period, we have worked with 110+ organisations on over 300 assignments. Here are a few more facts and figures:

A background in recruitment is not essential; you may already work in recruitment or within people services, transformation, governance or policy in a public or commercially led organisation. Utilising your local government/health/public services understanding, you will work with clients to help shape thinking and advise on talent requirements. You must be able to build relationships at the most senior levels, bring intellectual curiosity and use your influence and judgement to shape commercial solutions.
