Red Sea Executive Search is a global executive search consultancy, seeking extraordinary leaders to transform our world.
Empowering a new generation of global leadership to create a just, diverse and unified society.
We recruit leadership into the world’s foundations, trusts and charity organisations, and especially for INGOs in Global Development, Disaster Relief and Humanitarian Aid in the Global South.
Our vision is to empower a new generation of global leadership to create a just, diverse and unified society. In a world with increasing challenges, the need for leaders and visionaries to shape our world is greater than ever. Extraordinary people are needed to deliver this and discovering them is the heart of Red Sea; our passion is to serve by finding people who bring leadership excellence to organisations, and in doing so hope to help change the global landscape. We have successfully worked on some the most complex searches across Asia and Africa.
Our added value is our direct sector experience and the breadth and depth of our global networks. We offer a caring, creative, and customised approach to executive search; each client and candidate are special, and each search is unique.
With years of experience working in recruitment and witnessing the rapid pace of globalisation, our founder had a vision to actively contribute to the transforming world and established Red Sea. The main driver behind the company was a profound care for the human race, which remains one of our core values today. We don’t see executive search as just filling spaces; we genuinely care about finding the best people needed to transform our world. While we primarily operate in the global development and humanitarian sectors, our commitment goes beyond mere engagement; humanitarian purpose is embedded in our DNA.
At Red Sea, we serve you as trusted partners. We are a thoughtful, analytical, consultative company, who understand your unique needs by identifying talented individuals within our networks, but more importantly, also finding the most appropriate off-market candidates.
Our team consists of sector experts who have held senior in-house talent and resourcing positions, including World Vision International, Plan International and Oxfam. They have significant experience recruiting at the C-Suite and Senior Leadership level across sectors, including humanitarian deployment.
