There’s more to executive search than placing a qualified person.

When you need support and a safe pair of hands, choose BartonRock and get 25+ years of empathy, expertise and experience from me – Guy Day.

We’ll work together to challenge conventional thinking and outline what success looks like for your next executive hire.

As well as making recommendations around a search strategy, I’ll listen to your broader talent issues, constructively challenge you and advise on the best approach to help you achieve your goals.

Complemented by our sister company – leadership effectiveness consultancy NewlandRock – we’ll help you decide whether to build your business by hiring externally or invest in existing talent.

Services beyond executive search include:

  • executive and business coaching
  • leadership assessment services
  • executive development training

NewlandRock focuses on assessment, executive coaching and wellbeing solutions for UK-based and international businesses. Contact Kate Thomas  to find out more.
