Retained Executive Search

With more than 20 years’ experience in identifying and securing high performing and diverse leaders for organisations across the globe, RDW’s entrepreneurial approach to bespoke executive search enables us to consistently connect businesses with inclusive leaders who can propel organisations forward.

Through learned experience, we bring unique insight and expertise to every aspect of the end-to-end search process, from market approach to final appointment. To engage the most desirable and diverse leaders, RDW acts as an extension of your own business. To do this effectively, at the inception of each mandate, we work in partnership with you to better understand your organisational strategy and the challenges faced by your executive team, alongside the technical skills, leadership qualities and cultural attributes sought from your ideal business leader. As part of these discussions, we also talk through your diversity and inclusion strategy, challenges, and practices, so that we can use our inclusive search process to increase diversity on your board and across your most senior executive ranks.

RDW’s tenacious researchers and highly experienced consultants consistently act with gravitas, sensitivity, and creativity. They understand the importance of confidentiality and always ensure that the end-to-end search process is conducted in a discrete manner. Through our extraordinarily diverse networks alongside diligently researched information into target companies and competitor organisations, RDW will always come up with a diverse shortlist of in-demand executives who possess the right qualifications, leadership skills and past experiences to add value to your business. But a leader must be so much more than qualified for the role. He or she must also be the right cultural fit to bring maximum long-term value, which is why we invest so much time in interpreting the executive’s cultural alignment with your business.

Network search is ideal for filling middle or lower-level organisational positions, or roles where there is no degree of urgency or confidentiality. Our specialist executive search consultants, research and advisory teams utilise their deep industry expertise and wide-reaching contacts to identify and engage high-quality diverse candidates for you to interview – candidates who will rarely be found at other executive search firms.
