Our Services

Executive Search

Pacific Search Partners offers retained Executive Search services, conducting assignments nationally and internationally. We operate across industry and leverage our worldwide network of offices to ensure our clients have exposure to the most outstanding global talent.

Leadership is the common denominator in all the assignments Pacific Search conducts. Whichever way you cut it, effective leadership is the key to business growth, financial growth and employee satisfaction. Accordingly, our searches focus on appointing outstanding leaders for our clients. Outstanding leaders create outstanding organisations.

Relationship management is the most important feature of our operating style. Pacific Search Partners is not a transactional search firm; we are a relationship-driven firm committed to growing with our clients and adding value at every important event in our clients’ organisational development.

We see ourselves as a natural extension of our clients in the market place; a critical factor when advocating on their behalf.

Interim Executive

Interim Executives are increasingly engaged by clients who are experiencing periods of disruption, extended executive absence, growth, transition or major project work. Pacific Search Partners has developed a network of deeply experienced senior executives across Australia available to apply their skills on short term assignments.

Non-Executive Director Search

Effective Board governance can define an organisations success and dictate the future. At Pacific Search we recognise the importance of this and have developed a proven NED search process that thoroughly assesses candidates against the unique challenges, opportunities and risks they will face in the Boardroom.

Working in close partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors, we understand good-governance guidelines and remain current with national and international trends.

Whilst gender equality balancing is a key issue in Australia and elsewhere particularly in relation to leadership roles, Pacific Search Partners has for the past 8 years been at the forefront of recognising extraordinary talent regardless of gender and providing our clients with shortlists reflecting true gender diversity, and diversity across all measures. Our strong track record is testament to that.

Pacific Advisory

Pacific Search offers a range of Advisory Services to better support our clients in leading their organisations. Specifically tailored to Chairs, Nomination and Remuneration committees, our additional services cover:

Board Advisory
Advisory services to Chairs/Boards, both, retained regular advisory programs, as well as transactional/adhoc advice. In all respects our services are bespoke and address the particular circumstances, challenges and opportunities faced by our clients.

Board Performance Reviews
Board performance reviews along the spectrum, from light touch surveys thorough to more comprehensive surveys/Director interviews and detailed diagnostic reports and remedial programs. Survey questions and interview questions are tailored to recognise the particular issues for measurement, comment and improvement.

Talent Mapping, Management Assessments, Market Research
Assisting CEO’s and HR leaders to identify future talent pools for succession planning.

Conducting role specific assessments of management for strategic relevance and career development.

Conducting market research into specific industry sectors, largely driven around executive remuneration, organisational structures and key executive identification.

Executive Coaching
Each assignment is highly specialised and personally tailored according to the development needs of the individual and the strategic direction of the company.

Management Coaching
Slightly different to Executive Coaching, this service is focussed on aspects of management coaching for specific roles, e.g. communication, conflict management, decision making etc.

Psychometric Testing
As an Executive Search firm we understand the added value psychometric testing provides to our comprehensive search and selection process. We have a range of partnerships in place with globally recognised providers and have the internal capability to deliver and interpret the results.
