intexec-icon

Our Executive Search service is based on search and selection or targeted head-hunting, and our success is achieved by our knowledge of and international networks across civil society, private sector, and global institutions across our marketplace and beyond. It takes years to develop an understanding and gain the knowledge needed to effectively navigate the complexities of our markets, and we are able to bring 200 years collective experience in our industries, in human resourcing.

We are committed to the highest standards in client and candidate care, with the emphasis on integrity, transparency, and confidentiality. Our consultants have a track record which includes a range of Chief Executive appointments, Trustees, and Senior Management of Foundations, Trusts and other organisations. Our consultants have experience in Global Executive Search across the globe.

Research and mapping are a core part of our work. We are a headhunting agency, proactive in the markets and finding candidates who are the right fit for the roles and in prominent positions, potentially not looking at the job market or off the radar to standard recruiters. This has led to success in searches in potentially difficult markets and hard to fill roles.
