Evah and Blaise, from the Oxford HR team, working at a desk

By working with Oxford HR, you are partnering with an award-winning, global, diverse and multi-lingual team.

We are constantly learning and benefit every day from the strengths and knowledge of various team members – and we bring this insight into our projects. Certain groups are underrepresented in leadership roles – it is our responsibility to challenge that wherever we can. 

Our search process is completely transparent and ethical. Using a cloud-based CRM with bank-level security, we have an internal database of over 90,000 registered professionals and sources, allowing our clients to have live updates as we work. We always try to innovate, and, although we have proven tools and processes, we are always open to adapting what we do to best suit client needs, from using new technologies, to communication in unexpected media.

Why use a Leadership Consultancy?

If you want to work with an organisation in a partnership, with a team who really understands your goals, ambitions and challenges, contact us today. When you use Oxford HR, you gain the experience of consultants that have worked in the sector themselves, who care passionately about sector-specific issues and who have the knowledge, networks and experience to bridge your leadership gaps. We are proud to look beyond the obvious choices and encourage leaders with refreshing perspectives, grounded in solid skills and diverse experience. Working with us will ensure an enjoyable, straightforward and effective experience, ensuring that your whole team is a part of the process.
