About Us

Oxford HR is a global leadership consultancy dedicated to searching for and supporting remarkable leaders in social and environmental impact organisations.

Since 1995 we’ve been working with our clients on developing and expanding their teams, improving their board effectiveness and supporting on a range of leadership functions.

Our passionate, global and award-winning team is hand-picked for their unique experience and interest across our sector specialisms. They are based across Africa, North and Latin America, Asia and Europe, supported by Associates operating across the world.

We are collegiate rather than hierarchical and often involve the entire organisation in our projects, so you are accessing the wealth of collective knowledge and global networks within our team. We also like to innovate; we are constantly learning how to improve our processes and enjoy utilising new tools and technology. We understand the challenges and nuances of operating in today’s world and work in partnership with our clients to create positive and sustainable change.

Oxford HR is owned by Group CEO, David Lale.
