For leaders in the STEM, Innovation & Education sector, driving progress through the right mix of technical knowledge, strategic skill and leadership capabilities is essential. The nature of the sector is dynamic and forward-thinking, and so must be its leadership.
In Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, competition for talent is intense and traditionally non-diverse at senior leadership level. We work closely with our clients, who trust our data-led, consultative approach, to develop high performing leadership teams and inclusive workplace cultures. Through our unique expertise intersecting recruitment, diversity & brand, we help our clients build their employee brand and create employee value that gives them a competitive edge in attracting diverse candidates.
Working across Civil Society & Government, our clients include Academic & Research Institutes, Professional Bodies, Public Sector Enterprises, Charities and Health and Life Sciences organisations. Through our executive search and interim management practices we appoint senior clinical and specialist technical roles, in addition to both executive and non-executive positions.
Finding the right people for senior and interim roles is a significant challenge facing organisations in the STEM, innovation and education sectors. Particularly in recruiting clinical and research specialist roles, there may often only a handful of people that meet the person specification. We thrive in these search situations and welcome projects where others have struggled to find the right candidate. Our delivery team are experts in what their fields and are at their best when sourcing talent that really puts their sector knowledge to the test.
We work closely with our clients to define the right brief, understand the specialisms needed and identify, outside of our existing network, where such skills may be found. We also actively encourage client stakeholders to be involved in assessing candidates when interview shortlists are being drawn up. Knowing that know that niche talent is a scarce resource which needs to be looked after sensitively and at pace, we carefully manage conversations with candidates and clients throughout the search process.

Our unique and innovative search process, from briefing to interviewing, gives clients confidence that they are selecting from the deepest talent pool. In cutting-edge science and technology roles, our team keeps its finger on the pulse of rapid industry advances, notably in pharmaceutical research and artificial intelligence breakthroughs, so we can better match candidates to roles.
As well as senior executive roles, we conduct searches for professional and academic roles that have traditionally lacked gender or ethnic diversity. For non-executive roles, we widen the field of potential candidates by helping candidates get to grips with the demands of holding high office, like university rector and chancellor positions, so they are confident in applying. We attentively support candidates from across many fields to offer clients a more diverse spectrum of talent.

Executive searches for specialist senior-level STEM, innovation and education roles requires lateral thinking. Our cross-functional team brings together specialists in the public and private sectors, especially in commercially-oriented roles like engineering and technology.
Where a lack of diversity is hindering successful recruitment, we remove this dilemma by thinking differently about where we look for candidates and what skills they bring to the table. We go beyond the usually narrow parameters for niche roles and look far wider for suitable candidates. To do this, we tap into our extensive network of contacts to identify people who might not appear in more conventional recruitment searches.
Our ethnoculturally diverse team and its commitment to diversity gives us strong credibility with candidates. Clients gain competitive advantages using our pioneering insights and data on diversity and inclusion that help them transform how they recruit.
