We have developed an unrivalled understanding of the needs of not-for-profit organisations.


We pioneered executive search in the not-for-profit sector, taking the best of commercial headhunting and turning it into the right process needed for the sector. Many others have followed us but 30 years later that same honest and open approach we started tells us the not-for-profit sector appreciates and trusts us.
