The Role

When it comes to creating leadership teams who will change our world for the better, the best course to steer is not necessarily the most obvious. 

Starfish Search is already a leading name in senior executive search, interim management and Board recruitment. Our clients are leading commercial organisations, influential trade and professional bodies, regulators, local authorities and charities. We use strong advisory credentials to shape and deliver common sense recruitment approaches that are relevant and work. We don’t shy away from difficult conversations or less predictable choices; we tell it how it is and are trusted by an increasingly broad range of clients for the quality of our advice, insight and partnership.  

Having passed our 200th appointment, and with exciting plans for expansion in place, we’re looking for senior colleagues with diverse experiences to join our 20-strong team and increase our reach and capacity. Many of us have come from different backgrounds; while experience of recruitment is useful, it is not strictly necessary in order to enjoy and be successful at what we do. You may be working in strategic communications, organisational development, fundraising or psychology and looking for a different opportunity to shine. We are seeking positive, forward-looking and results-driven thinkers with sharp commercial acumen and maturity of judgement. Outstanding interpersonal skills and a genuine interest in people, organisations and society is essential. 

We want Starfish to be a great place to work and a truly inclusive organisation that encourages diversity in all respects, including diversity of thought. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and lived experiences to ensure our team fully reflects the clients and candidates we work with.
