Human Resources

With over 1,000 successful HR candidates placed, we know a thing or two about finding the right personnel.

Often it’s said that an organisation is only as good as the people who work there.  Yet if the HR function is less than efficient or thorough, standards may start to slip putting the organisation at risk of a poor reputation and a flailing ROI.

Our exceptional track record and heritage in Human Resources places us at the forefront of the industry for senior roles. Our consultants have personally delivered more than 1000 senior Human Resources roles between them, drawing on their deep understanding and knowledge of the challenges and pressures senior HR practitioners face on a daily basis.

Our network of senior business executives who work in HR spans sectors and geographies, meaning that we are able to swiftly reach out and establish the relative attractiveness of roles and employer brands, helping to inform and guide the strategy for the campaign. Our research department is then swiftly mobilised to support the identification and attraction of top talent, and the candidate appraisal process is backed by our bespoke, trademarked assessments and our rigorous ISO 9001:2008 accredited interview methodology.

We understand that Human Resources roles are very often sensitive and confidential, and we consult with each and every one of our clients with respect, openness and professionalism.

While we have completed senior roles across the full spectrum of the HR function, the bulk of our work tends to include both interim and permanent placements of the following roles and specialities:

  • Chief People Officer
  • ERP Implementation 
  • HR Director (HRD)
  • Organisational Design & Development (OD)
  • Head of HR
  • Compensation & Benefits
