Executive Search Specialists in the Public Sector

The public and not for profit sectors play an integral role in each of our lives. This can be through providing local services, national policy making, and charitable work within our communities or the creation of the country’s physical infrastructure.

With so many wide reaching responsibilities, as sectors they are complex. In terms of leadership this means that the skills and qualities required are many and varied. However one thing remains constant - the quality of the people in key positions is pivotal.

By their very nature, the public and not for profit services are inevitably highly scrutinised and pressured environments. As such, Novo Executive Search and Selection has developed a thorough understanding of the need for probity, integrity and transparency within the executive search process.

If you are a client looking to appoint a Chief Executive, Director or Senior Manager across Local Government, Central Government, the NHS, Housing or the Third sector we have the expertise and experience to successfully deliver.
