Executive Search

As Corporate Governance continues to gain prominence within all industry sectors, attracting and securing strong leadership across the Risk & Governance spectrum of markets is often high on the agenda. Our Executive Search practice is an ideal solution for the strategic hiring of key Governance appointments and gives confidence in successful delivery.

Retained Search employs the recruitment methodology most likely to ensure the successful appointment of the most talented and suitable Executive or Senior Manager for a business critical or highly influential role.

Across the Corporate Governance landscape, the ‘war-for-talent’ is most prevalent within Banking, Financial Services and Professional Services firms. Lawson Chase works exclusively within these markets and employs vertical market specialists with in depth expertise of their niche disciplines and who have the strength and breadth of network needed to make a material impact on a challenging search.

Engaging Lawson Chase on an Executive Search mandate will ensure an excellent match both in terms of a role’s clearly stipulated parameters such as experience, technical expertise, regulatory knowledge, remuneration levels, location and skill set but also softer qualities such as gravitas, leadership ability, personable skills and cultural fit.

The vast majority of prospective candidates identified within a Retained Search process will be passive – they are high performers within their current organisations and usually not actively seeking alternative employment. The most talented and sought-after professionals are by their very nature some of the most looked-after and valued individuals within the industry. Our experienced consultants are well versed in the art of headhunting and are vastly experienced in making discrete approaches to such individuals, to assess their suitability, target them and to coax them into being receptive to opening up a dialogue with our clients.

We have spent years fully market-mapping the highest caliber individuals throughout the Corporate Governance markets and have amassed deep relationships with a wide array of Senior Managers and Executives. Entrusting Lawson Chase with the delivery of a Senior Corporate Governance search is an ideal solution for sensitive appointments, time-critical hires or highly influential and niche roles.
