Throughout our proven international search process, we are always focused on finding not only the functional expertise our clients seek in a candidate, but also the cultural fit.

Our list of services below is not exhaustive: our flexibility enables us to meet new challenges all the time — as does the scope and breadth of our experience.

Permanent Roles

The keys to our success in sourcing senior candidates for permanent positions are:

One point of contact to ensure consistency, efficiency and accountability

A detailed briefing session at the outset of each project which goes beyond the role profile to cover KPIs and the business/team culture

A candidate attraction/engagement phase which prioritises research, market mapping and social media

A focus on competences and high potential verification

Findings from post-placement candidate research.

Interim Roles

Ashwood has the agility and network to identify interim executives who offer the experience and expertise our clients need to manage change, navigate recovery, or add value to an existing team.


Our services include consultancy on diversity, working with many of our clients to create a culture of inclusion, and to establish best practice based on third party research and insight on competitors.

market/organisation mapping

A key component of our executive search process, mapping is also a standalone service we offer at Ashwood.

Through this in-depth analysis of the talent pool across competitive organisations, we are able to identify top potential candidates, and to deliver insight into their skills, experience and likely aspirations.


If you’re looking for a new role, we provide expert advice and assistance at every stage. Whether your goal is to progress in your current field or move into a completely different one, we’ll work closely with you to find opportunities that really map to your skills, experience and aspirations.
