Board practice

Board practice

Appointing your Board is one of the most business-critical tasks you’ll undertake. Questions of experience, specialist skills, cultural fit and diversity all combine to produce a (sometimes daunting) challenge.

The first hurdle is often devising the brief. Our hugely knowledgeable team offers nuanced, constructive support to help you outline exactly how your new non-executives can add maximum value and provide strategic leadership to your organisation.

With you, we’ll develop the perfect profile and compelling narrative and then engage with our networks – these are the high-calibre people nurtured by us, and amongst them, we’ll find the right match.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What they say about us

“Audeliss is a truly unique executive search firm. The entire team provides an exceptional breadth of experience and insight. I’ve worked with them on multiple roles at Aviva and I’m particularly impressed with their level of perseverance and tenacity to deliver. Finding rockstar diverse candidates is something we take seriously and Audeliss are as passionate about that as we are. Their due diligence and assessment methods always result in an accurate picture of the candidate that stands the test of time and performance.  If you are used to working with the traditional search firms, give Audeliss a go, you will not be disappointed. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Sarah Morris, Group Chief People Officer - Aviva Plc

“From the very beginning, Audeliss understood exactly what we were looking for. The team practised close communication with complete professionalism throughout the search. Despite a challenging brief they provided a variety of diverse candidates, whose skills and experience consistently impressed the Nationwide Board at every stage of the recruitment process.”

David Roberts, Chairman - Nationwide Building Society

“The team is authentic and takes a partnership approach, which not only makes me feel valued as a client, but it ensures the best candidates are provided to us the first time. Audeliss is ahead of the rest and I would encourage other businesses to take the same modern approach because of the commercial value it adds now and in the future.”

Dave Bradley, Retail HR Director - Primark

“The role required a very specific brief that called for niche candidates with both analytical and communication skills who would also be a good cultural fit for the unique environment at Ofcom, and we were eager to increase the diversity of the team. Audeliss presented us with a diverse shortlist that included excellent senior female, BAME and LGBT talent with a broad range of skills and experience.”

Sharon White, Chief Executive Officer - Ofcom

“STEM is a notoriously difficult industry in which to find diverse candidates, particularly female and ethnic minority talent, so we engaged Audeliss knowing they were executive diversity specialists. Audeliss rose to the challenge, delivering a global shortlist that included exceptional female and ethnic minority candidates, with whom we were incredibly impressed. I would thoroughly recommend Audeliss for their unique ability to source excellent diverse talent and to provide a positive and productive recruitment experience.”

Gordon Pitman, Senior VP Human Resources - GKN
