Executive Search

We work with some of the world’s most innovative and forward-thinking organisations to recruit exceptional high-tech, digital and cyber leaders. We play a pivotal role advising corporations on recruitment, retention, diversity and talent development strategies.


One of the ways we stand out is through our onboarding programme. Our onboarding framework has been developed to ensure that every person we recruit will thrive and make a difference.

A case for onboarding

According to Leadership IQ — a New York-based leadership and training research firm — only one in five (19%) successfully selected candidates from external sources can be classified as unequivocal successes. World-leading organisations understand that diversity is key, but don’t always understand that the organisational context needs to be set up to support diverse candidates when they join the workforce. Companies need to think hard about how to be inclusive and to create the right environment from the beginning to create positive outcomes for the individual and the business.

Companies who implement an effective onboarding programme for senior leaders, see a significant increase in retention as a result.
