When it comes to recruiting tech leaders, we’re the experts For over three decades, we’ve been recruiting digital and technology leaders into almost every conceivable situation.
From innovative start-ups to some of the world’s biggest and most exciting brands, we’ve been helping organisations find expert, diverse talent that can take their technology to another level.
We recruit CIO, CTO, CDO, CISO, as well as leaders in Digital, Data, Engineering, Product, Infrastructure and Innovation. We cover the whole range of delivery models: from formal executive search, to agile quick-turnaround work, to interim management. We are incredibly proud of our extensive track record and work hard to maintain our leading position in the sector.
We lead the debate
While we’ve been growing our CIO community we’ve established the industry’s foremost CIO Survey (now in its 21st year) which presents the views of c.4,000 CIOs and technology leaders across 108 countries, sponsored by KPMG with further analysis from MIT.
Our views and insights having been covered in everything from the FT to Computer Weekly.
We host dozens of events every year around the world, from intimate round table discussions to large conferences, attracting technology leaders from all sectors.
We are committed to ‘giving back’ and being an active part of the community.
We’ve built an incomparable network of technology leaders backed by 25 years of relationships.
We are deeply committed to equal opportunities in our own employment policies and in our approach to search on behalf of our clients.
In particular, we have an excellent track record of recruiting women into technology leadership positions, where they are significantly underrepresented (the proportion of women in CIO positions has stalled at just 12% according to our latest CIO survey).

We take a tailored approach and use the tools that suit our clients, not us. For some an extensive global search is key. For others attracting a diverse shortlist is important, or speed to hire, or the need to use digital media, or psychometric tools, or exhaustive testing. And for some it’s all of the above.
In the past we’ve used podcasts, microsites, videos and blogs, and even hosted events in order to engage the exceptional candidate pool that our clients have come to expect from us.
Whatever the requirement, we’re armed with the expertise and tools to make it happen.
