Find talented & capable executives to lead in disrupted markets

New Street Consulting Group can help with your executive search requirements. With more than 40 years’ experience in the industry, no one is better placed to find the leaders you need to ensure your business prospers.

In a pandemic-impacted world, it’s more important than ever to get executive hiring right. You need confidence the leader you choose will thrive in their new role, despite a disrupted global economy and the as-yet-unknown challenges they are certain to face. That’s where a premier executive search firm like New Street Consulting Group can help.

Our team is here to take a smarter approach to your search for c-suite and senior leaders. We are specialists in finding high-performing CEOs, MDs, CFOs, COOs, CMOs, CCOs, CHROs, general managers and senior functional/specialist leaders. What stands us apart from other executive search firms is our ability to pinpoint the specific skills and traits that determine success, helping predict future performance.

Read more about our story

“Wickland Westcott at NSCG took time in the initial briefing to understand the context as well as the actual role content for the UK managing director position. The team checked in on us from time to time to ensure they were reading the situation and discussed the likely fit of each of the candidates presented versus the specification. They then championed the evaluation of a key candidate who was outside the initial scope – but proved to be a strong fit”

A data-driven approach to executive search

We don’t believe in offering advice or solutions without substantiation. Instead, we take a data-led approach that delivers clear, objective evidence of which is the best path forward. We use a wide range of methods and tap into a wealth of resources, including behavioural science techniques, to inform our decisions. We leave no stone unturned and once we have all the information at our disposal, our executive search team can deliver precise, insightful solutions to the challenges you face.

Working to streamline your executive search

There are plenty of candidates conducting an executive job search at any one time. You need to be able to pinpoint those individuals who are perfect for the role, and that’s where our approach can prove invaluable. Having listened to your requirements about the desired qualities in an ideal candidate, our stringent leadership assessment processes will narrow down the focus and identify those who we think will prove the right addition to your organisation. That detailed, meticulous approach contributes to your success and enhances our reputation as one of the country’s premier executive search firms.
