We work with the boards and executive managers of organisations to achieve ‘best fit’ corporate governance appropriate to the organisation’s nature, and thus enhance board and organisational performance.

Director recruitment

Through our specialist non-executive director recruitment service, we assist boards in sourcing candidates who not only have the right skills, knowledge and experience for a board vacancy but who are also a good cultural fit for the board and organisation. Underpinning our unparalleled success in placing directors are our director networks across Australia as well as our extensive, national director database.
Our expertise in corporate governance enables us to provide boards with a value-added recruitment service as we have a deep understanding of the role and functions of boards, and the skills and dynamics critical to board effectiveness. We also advise organisations on requisite board skills and director remuneration levels.
Our recruitment clients have included:

  • member and industry-owned companies
  • not-for-profit organisations
  • Government-owned entities (local, state and federal government)
  • privately owned businesses in various sectors including FMCG, construction, professional services, planning and project management
