Independent Search Partnership

Independent Search Partnership LLP was founded in 2010 by Guy Beresford, a senior headhunter with 20 years' experience with some of the top firms, to provide Board level executive and non-executive search services. In 2017, Neil Holmes joined as a Partner, adding to the firm's board level search experience across a broad range of sectors.

The firm's approach is to provide a highly personalised service, with a senior Partner 100% dedicated to all assignments, ensuring that all contacts with clients, candidates, sources and referees are made by the person responsible for the project. The firm does not operate a leveraged model.

The business maintains a tightly managed client list ensuring that the widest possible universe of candidates can always be targeted. Research is carried out by professionals who have worked with our Partners for many years. The firm operates very tight cost control and is prepared to share with its clients the risks and rewards of Board level recruitment. Fees are proposed at highly competitive rates, with structures designed to meet the client's needs as closely as possible.

Independent Search Partnership has strong relationships with other search partnerships in the UK and overseas, all of whom the Partners have worked with over many years. These include the leading Board level boutique firms in the USA and Asia. We are able to put together teams of experts for specific assignments, pooling and sharing knowledge and experience to the benefit of the client, at no extra cost. This can happen internationally, or within the UK on projects addressing specific markets. The firm has relationships with leading independent providers of assessment services, ensuring that candidates can be judged objectively at all times.
