Neil Newman Executive Search


Neil Newman Search is an executive search firm with a primarily, though not exclusive, focus on professional services: technical, business and strategy consulting and outsourcing

The executive search industry is cloaked in mystery with, all too often an expectation of unnecessary challenge. Somehow, time and again, consultants, clients and candidates manage to make what should be a relatively straightforward process very, very difficult!

Our aim is to make the experience less painful. By ensuring open and honest communications; by being totally transparent concerning processes and pricing; and by being realistic as to what we can and cannot do.

We aim to treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves.

The fundamental ethos that drives the success of Neil Newman Search is a belief in partnering, both with our clients and with our candidates. Neither can be commoditised and the success of our existing long-term relationships is through a dependence upon repeat business.

We are UK based but with a global network that has enabled delivery of searches from Scandinavia to South Africa, the UK to Singapore.

Neil Newman Search is not a database driven recruitment firm. The industry knowledge that we possess, our network of contacts within those sectors we serve and our global perspective is what sets us apart.

A big vote of thanks to you for your collaboration, insight and above all dedication and professionalism over the many years we have known each other
