Executive Search

With an impressive depth and breadth of experience in the for-purpose sector, and a rich background in working across a broad array of practice areas, we have a deep understanding of the needs of the sector which has consistently delivered great results to our clients time and again.  Our executive search service works tirelessly to identify, appoint and support extraordinary individuals to enable our clients to deliver their mission.

Organisational Effectiveness

It’s a truism that any organisation is only as good as its people. At Oxford HR we want to help you not only find inspiring leaders but also to nurture and develop them, their teams and the wider organisation. We can help you do this through our team of organisational psychologists and leadership specialists, steeped in their understanding of how global and national non-profits work.

The activities of our organisational effectiveness consultant team are wide-ranging; from appraising your operating culture and capabilities and then devising ways that change and improve how the organisation works, to providing  diagnostic risk-assessments that identify those best able to lead, coaching programmes that quickly enhance the effect leaders have, and strategic team development that sharpens collective focus and impact.

Just One Tree

Oxford HR is committed to not only searching for the best global talent for the needs of the For Purpose sector, but also recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are continually striving to reduce our environmental impact and improve our performance, as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. We also encourage our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.

As part of this commitment, we are supporting the Not-for-Profit organisation, Just One Tree. For every candidate that we place we will plant 10 trees, and up to 25 trees when placing a CEO level role. In addition to this, Oxford HR have committed to a regular planting of 25 trees a month as of January 2020.

The team at Oxford HR have been outstanding. Right from the first discussion they strike the perfect balance between running a professional process and taking the time to truly understand our business and the requirements of the search. They have expert knowledge of the Environmental Sustainability sector, a significant network of highly skilled contacts to call upon and the commitment needed to deliver a successful outcome. I am delighted with the candidates they have helped us to recruit and would recommend them without hesitation.

"Thank you for all of your incredible work and guidance throughout the entire search. I really feel you went above and beyond in terms of learning about Malala Fund's work and making sure we got this extremely important hire just right.

"International Alert partnered with Oxford HR for a critical interim appointment to our Executive Team. The timeline was very compressed and over the Christmas/New Year period too! Throughout the process, I found the Oxford HR team to be dedicated, hard working and professional - and they delivered an excellent longlist of candidates that resulted in Alert having a choice of two eminently appointable professionals after interviews. Their recruitment materials and web portal were also top notch - I will certainly be planning to work with Oxford HR again for both interim and substantive key senior positions."
