What Sets Us Apart

We provide executive search and advisory services that help you thrive in a rapidly changing world. Through insight, integrity and an intense focus on your business, we partner with you to build agile, inspiring and high performing leadership teams.

Intense Focus:

We concentrate on building deep and lasting partnerships, so that we can provide the intensity of focus and breadth of reach to meet your specific needs. By working with a select number of key clients in each industry sector, we can access a wider talent pool – if we had 1000 current clients, that would mean 1000 “off-limits” companies we could not source candidates from.

And by limiting the number of assignments we work on concurrently, you are assured that your consultant will be the one who delivers every stage of the search.


Our commercial insight and inquisitive minds enable us to quickly develop a deep understanding of your business and your culture, which we build upon through our lasting partnership. All of our consultants have held senior positions in large businesses, from HR to sales and C-suite roles, from global FTSE100 to privately owned and NGO organisations. Our experience and business knowledge underpin our advice and candidate assessment.


We are respected for our candour and passion for your business. Candidates trust and are often inspired by what we say about you and the opportunity, enabling us attract people who may not know your organisation very well . We will be equally frank with you about how best to attract and get the best out of your new leaders, driven by our commitment to your success.

  • Not sure how you do justice to what an amazing business partner Debbie Pask is but here goes! We worked together on a project in 2017 and from the first moment we spoke, I knew she had it. Quickly working out the culture of the business, she tested our thinking, pushed for clarity and gained a deep understanding of the organisation; with that, she then provided us with the perfect mix of candidates - right experience, right background, right profile. She also supported us on a complicated offer process providing the perfect balance for both sides to get to a deal. Unlike other headhunters, she’s super flexible, down to earth, responsive and is only interested in a sustainable long term solution for both sides. A rare jewel in the crown in this arena... couldn’t recommend her more highly!

  • Debbie recently successfully completed a challenging assignment to recruit a People Director for Newton - she is undoubtedly the strongest exec level recruiter with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working. Debbie came highly recommended from a number of sources, and exceeded all our expectations. She is hugely knowledgeable in the HR recruitment field, and extremely well connected. Her time investment into understanding Newton, our business, and what makes us tick was exemplary - this paid off in spades as she searched the market. It has also left a legacy in our business: people (of all levels) still speak about meeting Debbie. The process, from start to finish, was extremely efficient, with excellent unprompted communication to us throughout. Debbie managed a number of stakeholders at our end, candidate notes were comprehensive and professional, and all candidates were superbly briefed before meeting us. Debbie's insight into candidate's strengths and weaknesses made our job much easier. She was very agile throughout, and determined to do an excellent job for us.
