What makes us different is our ability to engage and build deep, lasting relationships with the best strategic & transformation talent
For 20 years we have built and developed our candidate network of current and former strategy & transformation consultants. We have an exceptional understanding of this talent pool: we know the aspirations and frustrations of our candidates and how to position roles effectively to attract such high-caliber talent. Our brand is well known amongst the consultant community: our candidates know we understand them, and they trust us for our expertise, objectivity, and advice. This means we are able to cut through the market noise and candidates respond to us when we approach them with opportunities.
We are functional specialists, yet industry generalists
We serve clients ranging from large corporations to private equity firms and their portfolio companies – and our clients span all industry sectors. The commonality is that the roles our clients wish to fill all need candidates who bring experience from a strategy and transformation background. Additional experience beyond consulting, often deep industry experience specific to the need of the role, completes the ideal profile our clients ask us to find. Our deep network allows us to access a truly diverse set of candidates from within the strategy & transformation niche, to meet the very specific profile requirements our clients desire.
Our global reach
Our network is global and we work internationally. By its very nature, the network of strategy & transformation talent is a very international one, and our deep access to this network allows us to work globally. We have successfully delivered permanent and interim searches for corporate and PE clients in the US, UK, Europe, and Asia. We have expert experience in assignments requiring candidate relocation.
We are trusted advisors to our clients
Clients enjoy working with us and value the advice we bring, as well as the success in our search assignments. 85% of assignments each year are from repeat clients, over 50% have worked with us for more than 4 years, and many for over a decade.
Working on a retained basis, our team of consultants and researchers act quickly to leverage our network, supplemented by new first principle research, to identify and capture exceptional candidates for our clients. Holker Watkin works as one team, applying our combined knowledge, insights and networks across all our searches to deliver the best possible search outcome.
