Welcome to ISP


Founded in 2010, ISP is one of the UK’s leading boutique search firms. Our Partners are some of the most experienced search professionals in the UK and bring an extensive track record in board and senior level recruitment for a wide range of companies. We partner with clients listed on both the main market and on AIM, as well as PE-backed, private and family-owned businesses.

“ISP secured for us a selection of excellent candidates for a number of NED positions, resulting in each case in our recruiting strong new colleagues. Collectively, ISP’s partners have a great understanding of the NED space, and are able to move at pace to establish a clear brief and deliver it successfully.”


Working across multiple sectors throughout the UK and beyond, our typical assignments are Chairs, Non-Executive Directors, CEOs, CFOs and senior leadership searches. Our Partners are some of the most experienced board search professionals in the country, working with organisations not only in London, but also in cities and regions throughout the UK and beyond.

We believe that diversity, in its broadest sense, is critical to the effectiveness of boards and the success of organisations. We are committed to helping our clients to improve and maintain appropriate diversity at board and senior leadership level. We are signatories to the Women on Boards: Voluntary Code for Executive Search Firms. 42% of our board placements over the last year have been female.
