About Us

Perrett Laver is a leading global executive search firm. We advise private and public organisations on their leadership challenges and their talent agendas. Our passion is in helping organisations that have a positive and transformative impact in society, be they universities, schools, NGOs, global development, public sector bodies or private sector organisations.

Global development has evolved rapidly. There has been a dramatic rise in the number and diversity of actors seeking to address the complex and urgent issues of poverty, education, health and climate change. The growth of venture philanthropy and the imperative for sustainable businesses have shifted the flows of capital to developing economies, and challenged many of the previously held assumptions.

Perrett Laver works globally with humanitarian and development NGOs, human rights organisations, public health agencies, development finance organizations, philanthropic foundations and social enterprises. We focus heavily on attracting the very best leaders from the north and south and, where appropriate, talent from outside the sector. We have conducted searches for the most senior roles within the sector (Trustees and NED, CEO, COO, Functional Directors and Regional Directors) across Africa, South Asia, Asia Pacific, the Arab states and the Americas. The changing nature of global development will require that organisations build diverse teams of world class leaders from a range of professional backgrounds and cultural perspectives. Through our robust approach Perrett Laver finds those leaders.
