About Oxford HR

Oxford HR is a global specialist executive search firm working primarily with ‘for purpose’ organisations, to help recruit and develop their leaders.

Formed in 1995 by an international development leader, it has grown in size and scope. We now work with national, multilateral and bilateral donors, international NGOs, private foundations, across the public sector, in the education and health sectors and with individual not-for-profits to source and appoint exceptional leaders who will deliver their mission on the ground. We promote positive change by ensuring that our clients have the people they need to lead and manage their organisations successfully.

We have the breadth of senior level international networks across the sector to ensure a successful outcome. We genuinely care about the quality of our work, the impact that our appointments have, and we have robust systems in place to monitor and maintain high standards of service, while remaining flexible to accommodate individual client needs and to mitigate risks.

Oxford HR is committed to gender and diversity representation in every search assignment. With many years of experience and extensive global networks, we have a track-record of promoting diversity in its broadest possible sense whilst identifying suitable and relevant candidates with the necessary managerial and leadership skills and specific technical expertise.
