Who we are

Cavendish Hawk is a privately owned search and selection firm. This means we have the freedom to act in our client’s best interests, without being subject to the demands of shareholders and quarterly reporting.

Our consultants and partners have worked for some of the world’s most prestigious search firms and commercial organisations and understand selection, assessment & development, organisational dynamics and the pressures placed on leaders.

What we do

We specialise in board appointments, both executive and non-executive, as well as senior management appointments at functional head level, for organisations of all sizes, from multinational corporations and the most lauded professional services firms through to family-owned companies and the not-for-profit sector.

Quality of service for both client companies and candidates is central to our philosophy. We represent you and your brand and we never forget that. We seek feedback at every stage of our process to ensure we maintain the exacting standards of professionalism you demand.

We have been described as “magicians” drawing the proverbial leadership rabbit from the hat, but what we do is very simple, we just do it very well and it starts with listening and observing at a very deep level. As one Chairman observed we “hear what’s not said”.
