Non-executive Search

Driving strategic oversight, culture and purpose to your organisation

Chairs and Non-Executive Directors  play key role in any organisation’s governance, but they also have the potential to do so much more than that. The right people can provide valuable independent mindsets and bring fresh creative and strategic thinking to tackle challenges. They can also embrace ambassadorial roles that help develop connections and drive growth. This is why we apply the same, rigorous, approach to NED briefs that we take to Executive Search. We deploy our full range of resources, skills and experience, including access to our NXD Academy and Development Programme, alongside a rigorous search methodology and working collaboratively with you, we will build a progressive Chair or NED profile and provide innovative thinking on how best to attract the expertise that will empower your business to overcome challenges, drive change and help you achieve, or exceed, corporate ambitions.
