We specialise in senior appointments, and typically work with CEOs, directors, ‘heads of’ and other senior managers, trustees, and paid and unpaid non-exec directors. We also recruit Philanthropy experts for anything from a non-profit to a UK investment management firm.

'AWS sourced the CEO for OneKind and their assistance was invaluable. The calibre of candidates they were able to present was very high. They were also able to take the time to provide advice to potential candidates to ensure that they were all equally briefed in preparing for their presentations to the Board'
