What We Do

Collectively, the team at Fraser Giles Partnership possess over 40 years of experience in Executive Search. Our specialist team work collaboratively on each and every assignment.

Fraser Giles Partnership has the added benefit of an in-house research team who deliver highly bespoke searches, remain constantly in touch with the market and source and track talent over a sustained period. Our approach is always meticulous and discreet; each search is started afresh, every relevant organisation examined, every possible candidate investigated. Research is rarely limited to direct competition, unless the specification demands it; 57% of our appointed candidates last year entered our industries for the first time.

We have the capability, understanding and experience to secure talent internationally; last year 54% of our searches were non- domestic, spanning four continents.

We value and respect people and pride ourselves on our authenticity and integrity. Our processes and terms of business are transparent, and all assignments are completed with passion and regular communication. We ensure coherence and confidentiality, and we leverage our comprehensive sectorial understanding and network effectively.

Our reputation stems from a belief that client and candidate satisfaction is the best possible indication of our performance, and we are proud of the track record and long standing relationships we have built. Underpinning those relationships is our commitment to investing time and energy into getting to know people, understanding their individuality and goals; only then can we deliver a service that fully reflects their core values and caters specifically for their individual needs.
