GatenbySanderson is the UK's foremost public and not-for-profit sector recruitment and people development business. We find and develop exceptional leaders to navigate complex challenges and transform public services. We operate within complex markets that frequently undergo change and are subject to high degrees of governance, external audit and public scrutiny. We are known for our ability to appoint to ‘difficult to fill’ or challenging, high profile roles have a national reputation for our work across Government, Board capability, Regulation, Health, Education, Housing and Not for Profit organisations.

We deliver the following expertise:

Search and selection recruitment for Permanent and Interim roles – Going beyond traditional networks, we are tenacious and expert in our search. Our insight, people intelligence and process assurance protect organisation from risk and the negative impact of highly visible errors. We invest in the best people and technology to ensure we build and retain relationships with the best talent.

Leadership and Talent Consultancy - Shaping leadership to be future ready. Be it assessing a potential new Chair; supporting a leadership group through change; running a Board diagnostic or coaching top teams through an organisational culture audit, we help individuals reach peak performance and fulfil potential at critical transition points.

Digital Resourcing Solutions – We build creative in house assessment and recruitment tools to automate process, create social engagement and provide a better candidate experience.


I have had a number of contacts with GatenbySanderson in the past few years and in every one they have materially surpassed my expectations across every aspect of the search and selection process. The experience is fundamentally different and better than any other leading Executive Search firm I have ever dealt with in the past – and that is most, if not all, of them!
