board practice

Our commitment to levelling the playing field for senior talent extends all the way into the board room. Appointing board members is one of the most business-critical tasks you’ll undertake so we don’t expect you to settle on a compromise. We engage with our diverse senior networks to find non-executive directors who can bring a new perspective on strategic leadership while meeting your brief on skills, knowledge and experience. Since 2011, 81% of our board appointments have been diverse.

Every board assignment is unique, and sometimes the skills and inspiration you really need come from outside your direct sector. Afterall diversity of thought in the boardroom can help your organisation grow, identify risks, spot opportunities and outperform others.

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 Sandhu 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, Managing Director - Bain Capital

We reached out to Audeliss to assist us in our search of a Strategy Director, and I’ve been very
impressed at the way the company handled the whole process. They were well prepared, communicative, and presented truly qualified candidates. I will, without doubt, be working with Audeliss again.”

Simon Martin, Head of Talent, Performance & Learning - 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.”
