HVO Search

The Problem

Finding and landing niche talent can be frustrating, overwhelming and unpredictable. There are many dead ends, unmotivated candidates, unreliable service providers, yet HR and Line Managers still need to get the job done.

The Solution

We use our own in-house methodology based on applied Behavioural Science to streamline the executive search process and deliver only excellent candidates who believe in the mission of the company we represent.

We research and actively hunt down the right candidate rather than taking a "first past the post" approach. Our due diligence means candidates are proven to reach peak productivity faster, make a greater impact and stay longer in the role.

We work internationally and understand the nuances of different local hiring environments and challenges they face, particularly when hiring someone from another country.

Not Just a Career

We are passionate about personal as well as professional growth. It’s not just our careers that define us. We organise networking events that blend all areas of work and life together.

Having said that, we still work hard to present the most incredible opportunities to those ready for their next professional challenge.




Our people are not just our best asset, they are our business. Nurturing relationships and collaborating with our clients to deliver personal and business growth is at the heart of everything we do.


We are committed to consistently delivering the highest level of service and adding real value. We understand that our candidates and clients are the champions of our success. We reward their trust with honesty, openness and support. Our clients have our undivided attention, and discretion is in our DNA.


We are steadfast in getting the right result. We persevere with dogged determination because we know that your success and our reputation is everything.


We love what we do. We are passionate about finding, understanding, promoting and connecting exceptional talent to growth opportunities.  We think we have the best jobs in the world.
