for a new perspective on talent

As a destination for diverse senior talent we have access to an extensive network of women, ethnic minority and LGBT+ leaders. Our reputation as an inclusive search firm also allows us to successfully engage candidates from other diverse communities as well as advocate and ally leaders who are passionate about helping to build inclusive organisations.

However this isn’t the only type of diversity we embrace. With offices in both London and New York we approach every senior assignment with a global lens and make a point of looking beyond your market sector and known candidates to find exceptional global talent who can offer something different in response to the demands of a role.

Our commitment to levelling the playing field means just that. Regardless of background, we always put talent first and will always recommend the best person for a role.


who we work with


what they say about us

“It’s a daunting endeavour to enter any competition when you know the competition is going to be fierce due to many outstanding candidates and where the winner takes all. Having entered the open competition for the role of Chair for the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS), I was delighted not only by the professional service given by Audeliss throughout the process but also by the personal commitment given by their Chief Executive, Suki Sandau and his team, who ensured the navigation through a very thorough, fair and transparent process was met with clarity, support and good humour – making the process both enjoyable and a pleasure” 

The Baroness Zahida Manzoor CBE

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. Their 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 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, 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.”
