Strategic Talent

Having the right people in place is crucial to the success of any business. Our unique Strategic Talent team works closely with our clients, helping them to recruit and build strong teams to drive and sustain business growth.

Boasting an unrivalled market knowledge, coupled with vast experience and extensive, established networks, we strive to ensure the right individual is identified for a wide range of differing scenarios.

We source CEOs, CFOs, COOs, Commercial Directors, NEDs and Chair people across the private, public, social enterprise and charity sectors, whilst also recruiting senior and mid-level finance professionals for businesses on a permanent, temporary and contract basis.

Regardless of business or project, we share the same principle that runs right throughout UNW; to support our clients long term, offering as much advice and input that is needed.
