About Hays Executive

As part of the world’s leading talent strategy group, Hays Executive has been working with a wide range of commercial and public sector organisations for over 30 years globally. Our clients range from multinational and quoted corporations to specialist consultancies, government agencies and SMEs.

Hays Executive successfully identifies and places many executives each year at board level including C-suite, Chair and other NED roles, as well as a wide range of specialist positions on a retained basis.

We also have a successful interim business focused on delivering executives for temporary assignments to cover transformation exercises or senior absences.

We take a fresh and innovative approach, providing bespoke research and candidate identification. Our in-house research and sourcing teams have complete control of the whole process and deliver a cost-effective service to approach those high-achieving individuals who are not necessarily actively seeking a career move, but who will consider it for the right role.

Using our extensive networks and research teams to penetrate specific market sectors and source from our clients’ key competitors, we are able to successfully place over 96% of the appointments that we are retained on, first time.

  • Retained executive search in the private and public sectors

  • Assessment & development
  • Salary benchmarking and evaluation
