Our Bespoke NED Search service

Our Bespoke NED Search service will proactively target candidates in our membership of thousands to fulfill your requirements.

Ideal for boards who require a highly specific skill set or experience level; prefer a discreet approach within our community; or simply want more certainty of connecting with the ‘right’ candidates.

Our Bespoke NED Search service has successfully worked with a variety of organisations: from listed companies, SMEs and start-ups through to public sector bodies, charities and not-for-profit organisations.

We also collaborate with headhunters, providing them with an efficient candidate research service to create exceptional longlists for their expert review.

Our Bespoke NED Search is a straight-forward and cost-effective service, tailored according to your needs. Our team can also offer support on creating a recruitment process that prioritises diversity amongst your board’s other needs and our unique relationship with our members enables us to facilitate a rich, honest dialogue with prospective candidates.

Your search process is personally overseen by a member of our experienced team who has deep knowledge of board recruitment from all perspectives.
