Passionate about sourcing the right talent, the right way ​

We work on Director and Head level Search assignments in Communications, Marketing and Investor Relations, for organisations ranging from S&P 500 and FTSE 250 companies through to associations, government and charities.

Our ongoing activities as thought-leaders put us at the centre of the conversation in Communications, Marketing and Investor Relations and place us in a position to access and identify the most talented individuals.

Our Services

Executive Search

Global network, executive search, communications, corporate affairs, investor relations

We offer a research-based headhunting solution to source and present the best possible talent to our clients. 

We use a fully-integrated and structured approach to search, including social media, media checks and market mapping. Nothing however replaces being dedicated specialists in our field and maintaining a unique candidate network.

We pride ourselves on our enhanced reporting centred upon rigorous competency-based interviewing, and we aim to become an extension of your own Human Resources processes. 

Retained Assignments

retained assignments, recruitment, establish candidate pool, corporate communications, IR

Sometimes a talent requirement cannot wait for, or does not require, a full-market search. 

We can offer bespoke solutions tailored to a shorter timeline or a defined brief, drawing on our established network

Interim & Fixed Term Contracts

interim management, fixed term management, communications

We regularly meet individuals who have managed high-profile Communications, IR and Marketing functions, who are now looking to the next stage of their careers in Interim Management.

Interims can usually start quickly and stabilise the function during a period of change. Whilst they sometimes end up being considered for a permanent role, it is more often the case that they can help senior management through the selection process and mentor the new appointment in the initial weeks of their tenure.

We are strong advocates of using an interim, and ensure we are always aware of those coming to end of their contracts. 

Talent Management

The Communications function is critical to the smooth running of the modern business. 

We partner with Whitney Murray Ltd to deliver talent identification and management programmes focused on benchmarking your team to the market and future developments in the communications industry. We can also offer mentoring and coaching programs with our consultants and experienced interim managers.

Our experience of meeting and advising the top talent in the industry means we are regularly fulfilling the functions of mentor, confidante and career advisor in our daily role. We also have a unique insight into the structure of competitor businesses, and of course we are experts in remuneration.
