The best HR leaders are at the forefront of ensuring businesses transform and perform. Whether it’s during periods of growth, transformation, mergers and acquisitions, or restructuring, they shape  strategic thinking, challenge the status quo, and unlock the potential of people and businesses in uncertain times.  

Increasingly, CEOs and Boards recognise the strategic role of the human resources function when addressing business critical challenges. Whether it’s developing inclusive and equitable cultures, building diverse and high performing teams, shaping agile workforces, developing leadership and organisational capabilities or redefining ways of working, HR leaders ensure organizations are able to compete and thrive today and into the future 

Over the last fifteen years, Leathwaite’s global HR team have worked in partnership with CEOs, Boards, and HR leaders to:

  • Recruit market-leading Chief Human Resources
    and People Officers

  • Help and advise Chief HR Officers in building first class teams

  • Partner with Private Equity firms to recruit critical HR and human capital talent for both the fund and the portfolio companies

  • Recruit Partners across Human Capital consulting

From private equity-backed firms to the FTSE 100 and Fortune 500, we apply a sector agnostic view on the market to ensure we unearth and attract the most impactful candidates from the broadest and most diverse talent pools.  

With consultants based in North America, Europe and Asia, our HR practice partners with our clients to attract, assess and recruit HR leaders across all disciplines: from Chief HR Officers; Chief People Officers; total reward, compensation and benefits; talent acquisition; talent management; leadership and learning; culture, diversity, equity and inclusion; to HR operations; HR technology, digital and data; organization design and effectiveness; and human capital consulting. 

Interim people and HR leaders are particularly well placed to support this critical business function, whether through transformations, mergers and acquisitions, periods of growth, to cover absence, or whilst permanent solutions are considered. We work with businesses across many sectors to deliver seamless HR leadership that will keep people front and centre in C-Suite conversations.  

We draw on an enviable global network of career interims from Chief People Officers, Chief HR Officers and transformation consultants to leaders in talent management, talent acquisition, reward, HR operations, M&A, project management and DE&I. We also support candidates through their career transitions, being well placed to share knowledge of the global interim market.
