Business is personal.

Of course it is. It’s about the relationship of trust people have in their leaders. It’s about the relationship of belief that leaders have in their teams. It’s about the relationship of faith you put in us. And the more influential the position… the bigger the objective… the higher the stakes.

Guess what?

The same as in life: The more trusted the relationship needs to be. It’s why BIE focus on only the most important things:

Relationships and results

For our candidates, our clients and their business.

Because the more powerful the partnership the greater the potential.

Our values

Our core values are ingrained into our culture at BIE. They shape the way we work, communicate and collaborate with all our clients, candidates and colleagues.


Bringing your whole self to work is important to us. We’re real people, with diverse backgrounds, that pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our clients, candidates and colleagues.

It’s these authentic relationships that allow us to develop a true understanding of your long and short-term goals.

Working collaboratively is a critical part our approach. We believe in building long-lasting partnerships, acting as an extension of our client’s team.

We also actively promote a collaborative culture internally, encouraging teams to work cross-functionally to provide the best service to our clients and candidates.


Providing an unmatched level of service is a non-negotiable at BIE. We pride ourselves on our internal collaboration deep levels of functional expertise and our drive to build long-term meaningful relationships with all our clients and candidates.

Delivering quality work that produces outstanding results is at the heart of everything we do.

Our commitment to social mobility

At BIE we are committed to creating a voice that raises the profile of social mobility as a key consideration within the executive search market. Our belief is that social mobility drives diverse hiring and helps our clients create more inclusive teams.

While delivering visibly diverse shortlists goes some way to changing the agenda, partnering with our clients, we prefer to challenge and encourage the consideration of talent from wider socioeconomic backgrounds.

Doing this increases equal opportunity for all and creates leadership teams with diversity of thought that drive results and innovation.

The results are there for all to see:

  • A BCG study found that companies with more diverse management teams have 19% higher revenues due to innovation.
  • Providing opportunities for individuals from lower socio-economic groups gives companies access to a larger pool of potential talent – 39% of the UK workforce aged 16-plus are working class, according to Social Mobility Commission data.

Ensuring our consulting teams are educated and able to consult with clients on how social mobility can drive diversity, inclusion and business results is a core part of our internal training and education.
