We provide a fresh approach to executive search

We established our permanent recruitment offering in 2018, which now stands as one of our three core offerings. Recruiting for permanent roles from bands 8b to VSM, we pride ourselves on the fresh approach we offer to executive search, using our experience and insight to offer exceptional quality candidates for our client partners.  Our approach involves very close collaboration with our clients, taking time to fully understand the nuance of each role and the values of the organisation we are sourcing for. This leads us to securing the best and most culturally fitting candidate for each role. 

No two assignments are the same

We’re driven by understanding the bigger picture so we can advise and assist our clients in doing what is best for our healthcare system. Our 20+ years of experience gives us the insight, Knowledge and networks to serve our clients on a strategic level. All of this is underpinned by our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and searching far and wide to ensure the right shortlists. From a candidate’s perspective we offer the best advice and guidance in career development and progression.

Contact our Director, Nicola Brookes

  • Nicola was successful in hiring my Deputy CFO, attracting a range of high calibre, talented and diverse candidates who were bought in to the GOSH values, well-researched and had been extremely well briefed. Nicola has a professional, efficient, and responsive approach; her insight into the candidates and constructive ideas around how to run the process were invaluable.
