Our World of Search
Our Board of Directors practice has extensive experience identifying and securing elite candidates for top universities, large foundation trusts, international NGO’s and a broad range of charities around the world. Through our work with the highest levels of governments, civil society institutions, major corporations and public bodies, we bring a distinctive and highly contemporary focus to our work advising on Chair, Non-Executive Director and Trustee appointments.
Crucial for all our clients is this ability to engage with potential candidates from outside their own sector, and a cross-sectoral approach to Board search comes as standard with Perrett Laver. Our thorough methodology, extensive personal networks, dedicated research capacity, honest advocacy and qualitative database separate us from other search firms in this regard. Furthermore, with one of the most distributed client lists in the industry, covering the Global South, China, Greater Asia and the Middle East alongside western markets, our reach for the new generation of Board Directors is unparalleled.
Ensuring as diverse a field as possible is central to our research process and is core to Perrett Laver’s ethos. We do not think of equality and diversity as ‘box-ticking,’ but rather as an essential tool in addressing the very real institutional and social barriers that can prevent different world views from being expressed in top positions. We have a strong track record in identifying candidates for Board appointments from across the various strands of diversity. Regardless of background, we approach and interact with all candidates with the sensitivity and respect demanded from their positions, ensuring everyone we engage are left with a positive impression of our clients.
At Perrett Laver, our global and cross-sectorial reach ensures the strongest and most diverse field of Board candidates for our clients, allowing appointments which resonate with organisations’ needs, culture, values and mission.
