About Carlyle

We are experts in securing high quality solutions for senior leadership roles. We work closely with our clients to design a bespoke service which secures the best possible candidate for the current and future needs of the organisation.

We spend time understanding all nuances to ensure that every Search we undertake is strongly aligned to client requirements and, likewise, the client is fully and accurately represented in the market. We are committed to enhancing leadership capability and expertise through every candidate.

We focus on a client-led approach to ensure every Search is resourced optimally and that clients are well informed of the process and broader market intelligence.

We advise on positions at Executive, Board, Advisory and Senior Interim level. We have in-house expertise on regulatory approval processes where these are required.

Our Parallel Search™ offering allows us to fulfil both an immediate as well as a permanent need simultaneously. This creates optimal efficiencies for the client as they fulfil their near-term and long-term requirements.

Our insight and analysis offers an independent and current view of the market, emerging trends and talent. Our rigorous and dynamic research reports provide clients with the intelligence they need to support their decision making process.

Our Team

As a team, we are respectfully curious and admire what each of us can bring to the services we provide for our clients. We are deeply committed to achieving the right outcomes and work with tenacity, resolve and integrity. We promote a culture of diversity and value-driven behaviours, not only in ourselves but in how we conduct our search for candidates.

We are proud of the successes we share with our clients. Our business has grown predominantly on client referral and we have an enviable track record of repeat business.

We continually develop our knowledge and reach across a range of disciplines and sectors. We encourage individual initiative and lateral thinking. We deploy our resources generously to each assignment and the team never take shortcuts.

Each assignment gets the attention which our clients have the right to expect.
