Horton International UK provides consultative Executive Search recruitment services for Board and Senior level appointments across a broad spectrum, including Publicly listed corporations (large to small cap); Private Equity; Investment Funds; Private & Family-owned businesses; Government & Not for Profit organisations.

We are inquisitive by nature, passionate about the organisations we work with, and excited about our role in connecting them with the individuals who will drive their businesses forward.

Coupling our vast networks, which we are constantly developing, and highly regarded reputation within our specialist markets with a forensic, research-led search model, we consistently deliver diverse shortlists comprising exceptional individuals who can be otherwise difficult to find/attract.

We operate in a responsive, innovative and agile manner ensuring fast results from a thorough process.

We are very selective with the searches that we undertake:

  1. We must be 100% confident in our ability to successfully deliver the desired results.
  2. We ensure that we do not take on more searches than we can effectively handle as this could be detrimental to the service delivered and our success.

We take our role as a trusted advisor very seriously, with confidentiality central to everything we do.
