The pace of change today means that making the right executive appointment is more important than ever. 

Equipped with deep functional expertise, the BIE executive search team understands the strategic goals and skillsets required; investing the time to understand the culture of our clients and the commercial landscape within which they operate, to ensure the best possible result.

We operate across the UK and internationally, successfully delivering mandates across Mainland Europe, Middle East, APAC and North America.

"They take their time to get to know their clients and candidates. This means that I know that when they make an introduction there will be a great fit."

Biffa
Former Customer Shared Support Director, Biffa

"Engaging with BIE has been a breath of fresh air. From the initial introduction and throughout the process, I have been very impressed with the passion to really understand our requirements, the ability to translate that to the brief and latterly, the quality of candidates coming through from the search."

Jasmine Hudson, Mitie plc
Group HR Director

Our Approach

BIE’s executive search capability is founded on a comprehensive, disciplined and research-led approach that ensures finding suitable executive candidates who match above and beyond
requirements.

We conduct extensive research, rigorous market mapping and targeted headhunting of passive talent and provide thorough MI, data and insights throughout the project. Every candidate is screened according to specific criteria and competencies and we provide detailed assessment reports prior to client interviews.

We run each assignment to pre-agreed timescales and set clear deliverables throughout, providing a dedicated team of researchers and directors to support each project to a successful conclusion.

Successfully identifying and engaging with the best talent in the market requires knowledge, experience, discretion and strong judgement. Our experienced consultants are able to bring a combination of deep functional expertise and sector knowledge to every assignment.
