Welcome to Nexus Search.

Your dedicated partner for impactful executive search.

The Nexus story.

Our directors launched Nexus Search with a shared passion for delivering market-leading talent to clients quickly, but without ever compromising on quality. After witnessing a large number of search partners lose sight of what’s important to their customers over their own growth goals, we strive to do things differently.

We aim to grow to a maximum of 40 exceptional consultants. From our associates to our directors, every member of Nexus Search is immersed in the day-to-day of recruitment – and this is how it’ll stay.

Our intention is to work closely with a limited number of the most exciting clients in the market and become their agile hiring partner of choice. It is with our ‘skill-set expert’ structure, niche client partnership model, and our ability to develop outstanding consultants that allows us to deliver the best candidates, quicker than our competition.

And that’s why, although we were founded in 2020, we’re already trusted by the industry's top companies.

So, our vision for the next five years is simple: to not only be the recruitment partner for the industry’s leading companies, but to change the perception of the executive search model for good.



1. a connection or series of connections linking two or more things.

2. a central or focal point.

Combining a high-powered network with far-reaching sector expertise.

We live and breathe each of the sectors we recruit for. Not only does that mean we know the people, but we also know the markets, the regulations, and the ever-changing demands that make these sectors distinct.

When you partner with us, you’ll be matched to a specialist member of our team. They’ll understand exactly what your company and sector demands in order to succeed.

Experience executive search that gets results.
