Over the past two decades, we have focused on executive search for the technology, life science, private equity and venture capital industries. This niche client set has enabled us to become experts in our field and to understand the make-up of successful leadership teams at each stage of growth.

· Garnering market intelligence and identifying candidates through both direct sourcing and networking, and the use of desk-based data resources.

· Assessing prospective candidate experience through initial discussions.

The successful candidate will demonstrate the following qualities:

· An interest in next generation technologies, venture capital markets and growth business.

· Proven research skills and a keen eye for detail.
