Executive Search & Selection

We deliver results,


Spencer Riley’s team of highly dedicated, specialist consultants’ pride themselves on gaining a full understanding of our client’s business, their challenges and aims in order to build a long-term valued relationship and share in their success.


We measure ourselves by the results our partnerships achieve. We dedicate a specialist lead consultant and team to focus solely on every assignment and it’s the relationships that these teams build that help us to deliver placements with a quantifiable result for our clients and candidates.


For every assignment we work on it’s hugely important for us to dig deep and understand the long-term rationale behind why our clients want to secure someone with a specific skill set.  It’s equally as important for us to understand the market, the region, the exact experience needed, and the measurable objectives that must be delivered within the position and it’s a process we never compromise upon.

We make the difficult possible


By understanding your organisation, the challenges, goals and culture in finite detail and agreeing on a clear process with you at the beginning of the assignment we are able to run the full search and selection process with minimal disturbance to your schedule and achieve the best results possible.

The lead consultant will be your point of contact throughout the process of:


  • Understanding the priorities of your business
  • Agreeing a search strategy
  • Identifying, attracting and networking initial prospects
  • Detailed interviewing and assessments of candidates prior to shortlisting
  • Presenting candidate reports and arranging first interviews
  • Managing references, any pre-requisite testing, negotiating and managing the acceptance
  • On-boarding and regular communication throughout transition

Assignments we complete can range from: CEO, COO, CFO, Global Directors, Managing Director, Sales Director, Commercial Director, Technical Director, Operations Director, Regional Director, Vice President, Vice President of a specific divisions or region along with other Executive level positions.


Our clients range from Private Equity firms, SME’s, Privately owned organisations and PLC’s based in the UK, Europe and North America working domestically and internationally.


We focus on roles based in the UK, Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa.

For every role we work on it’s our goal to truly understand your business, it’s requirements and the skillset needed to exceed the expectations of the position you are looking to fill. The team will work tirelessly to get you the results you need.”
