With over 20 years’ experience in recruitment Dawar is the Partner for our Local Government and Health Practices. At University, Dawar studied Law and graduated with a 2:1 LLB Hons, after which he completed a diploma in legal practice. In 1998 Dawar joined a global recruitment company to become their first-ever consultant to focus solely on Local Government appointments. Within a year he was instrumental in setting up the first master vendor agreement between a recruitment business and a local authority in the UK.
Over the last decade Dawar has been specialised in recruiting chief officer positions within Local Government and in particular, Social Care and Health. As one of the few executive head-hunters from a BAME background himself, he exemplifies an unyielding commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Dawar co-chairs the panel of judges for the prestigious MJ Local Authority of the Year award and works closely with Green Park’s diversity and inclusion practice.
