From the proven network relationships, to strategic foresight and counsel, we help organisations deal with the evolving challenges, while also supporting them to build for the road ahead.

We have worked with more than 800 clients and placed more than a thousand candidates into leadership positions, all of whom recognise the importance of building the right leadership to drive effective change and success through organisations.

Tailored Approach

Our friendly and skilled team of 35+ people provide a highly tailored and personal service that you would expect from a smaller, boutique firm, with the same levels of expertise and experience of the big global search firms. We invest time to understand our clients’ strategic goals, their culture, and the commercial landscape within which they operate. We build successful, long-term relationships with our clients, which is one of the reasons why 70% of our work comes from repeat business.


Specialist Knowledge

BIE’s business is underpinned by a matrix structure of experienced consultants who are industry agnostic, with specialist functional expertise. Our consultants take a collaborative approach to appointments to ensure that our clients benefit from the knowledge and networks of the wider BIE team. This allows for a fast, flexible approach to ensure we source the best skills fit for the project. 

Inclusive Culture

We are committed to supporting organisations to build diverse leadership and to foster the inclusive cultures that will enable their people to succeed. Through both our work in the market and our conversations with leaders, we know that inclusive and diverse leadership is critical to sustainable business success. Our role is to support organisations to think differently about talent as we attract extraordinary leaders.
