Work with a team as committed to finding transformational leaders as you are

  • Executive Search for CEOs and Senior Leaders
  • Interim placements for Senior Leadership Positions
  • Board Development and Trustee Recruitment

In the search for your next leader, enjoy the support of our superbly experienced team who have successfully placed countless CEOs and Senior Leaders in the not-for-profit sector. Over the last 30 years we’ve earned a reputation for creating lasting relationships with organisations and identifying and recruiting the best leaders for them.

Our success is built on this experience and underpinned by our unswerving commitment to diversity, which our clients share. We take the extra steps needed to make our search and recruitment processes inclusive in the service of better leadership in the charity sector.

Let us find you leaders who are committed to your mission and capable of inspiring the change needed to transform your organisation and extend your impact.

Benefit from experienced support in building agile, diverse, engaged boards

When it comes to Board Development and Trustee Recruitment, we know what it takes to create a board of trustees that works. The pandemic has presented organisations with new challenges and opportunities. You have had to respond to changes in technology, socio-economic conditions and funding landscapes to continue delivering vital services to your communities. Organisations with agile, diverse and engaged boards have been best able to adapt fast.

Our team has a strong understanding of what makes for effective boards, and extensive experience of recruiting trustees. Because we interact with trustees daily, we understand the best people for these positions and the challenges and subtleties that come with the role. This insider knowledge is invaluable when it comes to finding trustees who will take your organisation further.

Our Executive Search and Recruitment service

Whether you are looking for support with permanent roles or interim solutions, the care and attention to detail we give each process is the same. We work closely with you to tailor your search requirements and find relevant candidates who fit the brief and screen all candidates in the same manner, whether they are interested in permanent or interim positions. For candidates, we offer personal support and ongoing advice on career development.

We work in partnership with our clients and candidates, building long-term, personal relationships and keeping abreast of change and development in the sector. We pride ourselves on our authentic, honest and transparent approach to leadership recruitment and executive search and are committed to finding the best candidates and offering advice and guidance throughout the process and making clear and insightful candidate recommendations.

Our Interim CEO Search service

We take great pride in identifying the best senior executive staff for our clients. In some situations, an interim CEO can be a great temporary solution for organisations going through change. Whether your long-term CEO is stepping down, or you want to shift the direction of your organisation but you’re not yet sure of your long term focus, an interim CEO can provide robust, effective leadership.

Our process for identifying an interim candidate with the competency to handle your organisation’s immediate needs is no less thorough and collaborative than that of our searches for permanent staff. We work swiftly and attentively alongside you to make sure that interim CEOs can transition smoothly into your organisation, provide stability in a time of change, and start making an impact right away.

Why work with us:


We give you the quality and personal service of a boutique headhunting firm to find you the best possible candidates, not just the best candidates available in the sector right now.

Our approach combines rigour, market knowledge, insight and a commitment to inclusion that makes sure every angle is covered.

Our senior team have all worked in the sector for years and have a unique combination of empathy, insight and influence, as well as an impressive global network of contacts.

We work closely with you to tailor each search to your need.

Besides tapping into our extensive UK and international networks, we work with allies beyond the not-for-profit sector to ensure we are reaching diverse candidates.

Everything thing we do, we do with integrity because we are passionate about our work and how it helps others to improve our world.

We will always do the right thing by our clients, candidates and people.
