The U.K. is the second largest executive search market in the world and is a thriving and truly international environment for both professionals and organisations. Harvey Nash Executive Search was founded in London in 1988 and has a unique standing in the market as a result.

The UK operations act as the headquarters for our business. Today Harvey Nash Executive Search operates out of five UK offices:

  • Manchester

Our executive search business is organised by practice groups, which provide deep industry expertise and professional development.

Today the business is made up of over 60 professionals working out of these five offices providing a mixture of executive search and leadership services.
