Marlin Hawk is a boutique advisory firm focused on the next generation of
global leaders.

We want to change the way companies think about talent. Every business faces the same question. Regardless of its size, sector or location. How can we appoint leaders who deliver success?

At Marlin Hawk, we believe the old answers are not good enough. So we've redefined executive search and pioneered new ways to help companies secure and develop the talent they need. Our clients trust us to hunt wider, deeper and smarter than anyone else. They know we will bring them those special people who make a
real difference.

Above and Beyond

In a rapidly changing business world, tradition can be an asset. But companies that refuse to adapt will struggle to grow. Winners are smart, agile and open-minded. They employ great people. We help our clients to see the big picture. We show them how the right talent could redefine success. And then we go out and find those people. View our client and candidates section to hear some of their thoughts and experiences.

Our Stories and Discoveries

To the ends
of the earth

(and beyond)

We've guided our clients on some incredible journeys. To us, they are true pioneers. They see business as an adventure. They take tough terrain in their stride. They overcome great challenges to achieve the extraordinary. Their inspiring stories will show you the value we put on building relationships, the scale of what we could achieve together.


"Inspiring journeys of discovery are as much part of the cityscape as the wilderness. Whether it's the boardroom table or the polar plateau, executive bench or continental shelf, if we expand our horizons and rise to new challenges, we are capable of achieving the seemingly impossible." ©

share it with our networks.

DO YOU HAVE THE MARLIN HALLMARK?

At Marlin Hawk, it is our people that make us stand out. We look for extraordinary talent and, not surprisingly, apply the same stringent approach to hiring it as we do for our clients.

Whether a raw graduate or experienced consultant, we want people who think differently yet share our values. We seek individuals who thrive in a culture that is unrelenting in its pursuit of the best customer experience in our industry.

We expect total commitment and we reward it by promoting people rapidly – there are no limits, whatever your level of experience. We run a mentoring scheme to increase every person’s chance of achieving their full potential. We also know how to have fun, celebrating individual milestones and collective success.

If you want to start or develop your career with a boutique that genuinely shapes the world’s business leadership, please contact us in confidence on careers@marlinhawk.com or apply for roles advertised on our LinkedIn profile.

Our Philosophy

Discovering And Delivering The Unexpected

We want our clients and candidates to achieve their full potential. So we've developed better ways to understand 'how' and 'why' those we work with became 'who' they are today. We don't rely on intuition. Our unique tools and processes evaluate candidates from three perspectives: ambitions, 'life journey', and desire to grow personally.

Combined with our knowledge of business trends and the changing world of work, these insights reveal candidates in a new light. Read more to discover how we deliver results that are sometimes unexpected, but always highly effective.

Our approach to Corporate Responsibility
1) We Look For Ambition

We find people who think big, challenge themselves and see every setback as an opportunity to learn and grow. These are candidates who do not just accept the world as it is. They want to find a better way, a smarter answer. They want to shape the future.

Culture Clash

We often look for candidates that fit a client’s culture. But sometimes a culture clash is what’s needed. An insurance company was in the slow-lane, falling behind its rivals across a range of performance metrics. We found it a Chief Operating Officer bursting with ambition. His sense of drive and commitment reinvigorated the business. Within 100 days, he’d devised a transformation plan – and begun to implement it. He achieved a degree and pace of change that would have been unthinkable before his arrival.

2) WE LOOK AT DEFINING JOURNEYS

There are many routes a traveller can take to reach a destination. We find candidates who are honest about the obstacles they have encountered along the road, and how they managed to overcome them. We can separate those with the potential to journey further from those who have taken too many shortcuts or got lost down too many
dead ends.

Digging Deep

It's good when a client knows what they want. But often their brief is just a starting point. One company wanted to appoint an internal candidate, someone who had been with it for years and – so it seemed – had an impressive record. But when we dug deeper into his personality, we discovered a worrying management style. We advised the board that if they appointed this individual, they risked undermining some of their most important business values. When we showed the senior leaders the kind of candidate they really needed, we quickly found the perfect person.

3) WE LOOK FOR GROWTH

We find candidates with the potential to grow. Rising stars who need a fresh challenge. People who want to keep moving forward – learning, growing, achieving more. Those who can deliver sustained improvement for years to come.

Tomorrow’s Talent

Finding a candidate who meets the client’s needs today is good, but not enough. We like to find the rare people who have the kind of drive and vigour our clients will want to retain for years. Our ability to spot upcoming talent enabled us to find a superb Chief Executive for a global consumer goods business. This individual was young, dynamic, talented – and massively frustrated with his old employer, which foolishly overlooked his potential. Shortly after starting his new role, he was voted one of the most inspiring leaders in the industry.

4) WE ASSUME NOTHING

Assumptions are dangerous in our profession. There is no such thing as the "standard brief" – or there shouldn’t be. We find the best-of-the-best candidates by looking at the full picture – life experience, education, adversity, business achievements – and always pushing for more.

Persistence Rewarded

Our client wanted to recruit a Senior Security Officer. Previous search firms had failed to deliver, or given up in frustration with the board’s shifting demands. But we saw their uncertainty as a challenge. We live in an ambiguous world, where needs change. The answer is to listen, think and be patient; challenge assumptions with data and rigour. Eventually, we found the perfect candidate. But he wasn’t an obvious choice; with a government background, he would need time to adapt. So we coached him through his first 18 months, showing him how to apply his skills and deliver change in the private sector – where he continues to add significant value.

Our Services

Transforming Careers And Companies

Our industry is big on talk but short on innovation. So we've thrown away 'the rulebook'. We're not interested in tired practices that do nothing to help clients or candidates. Instead, we've pioneered tools and methodologies that transform business performance. Ours is a more scientific approach. It's grounded in rich detail and clear strategic thinking. And it gets results. Read more to learn about our sevices, and what makes them unique.

Executive search

We collaborate with key stakeholders to develop a crystal clear brief. Then use innovative search techniques to identify an unparalleled pool of potential candidates. We guide clients and candidates throughout the process – managing expectations, aligning ambitions and keeping the outcome in focus. Our world-class project management skills ensure a smooth journey from beginning to end. With the perfect candidate on board, we stay close at hand – coaching and advising as needed.

Market intelligence & benchmarking

We share actionable business ideas and market intelligence with clients across a range of topics – from the impact of regulatory change to emerging skill gaps. Our fresh perspective on talent management and organizational strategy helps clients to define their requirements better, before we even start searching for candidates.

Interim management

We provide outstanding interim executives – quickly. Our no-compromise approach enables clients to be flexible in their resourcing and to respond quickly to unexpected changes or sudden opportunities. With a global network of referenced and vetted candidates, we can find the right people, wherever clients need them.

Project services

We handpick experts and advisors who deliver successful projects. Our approach ensures that the people working on a project align with the client’s values and share its objectives. Compared to resourcing a project through a traditional consulting firm, our approach offers clients greater long-term value, less short-term cost and far more control.

Leadership assessment

We conduct discrete evaluations of individuals, teams and boards of directors. Our work helps senior leaders to identify skills gaps, adapt to a changing business environment and plan for succession. Clients can then develop the talent management strategies that will keep them moving forwards.

Coaching

We offer all our clients and candidates honest, frank and constructive feedback about how they can achieve their goals or move their careers forward. That can take the form of a structured coaching program or less formal guidance. Our coaching helps people at every stage of their working lives.

Our Sector Expertise

A Deeper Understanding

We work and think globally, across corporate sectors and country boundaries. That gives us an unrivalled perspective on business and people trends. To find the best candidates and new ideas, we go where more limited consultancies can't. No one in our industry can surpass the depth and range of our networks. We are constantly talking to some of the most influential people in the world. We get to the right people fast, opening doors and creating opportunities.

Services
