How we can help

KPMG’s Executive Search & Selection works with our clients to understand their business drivers, culture and values, enabling us to provide a tailored approach that ultimately helps identify the best candidate for each appointment.

Our advisers have extensive experience in executive search across the public and private sectors in a wide range of professional disciplines, specialising in the placement of Board Members, Executives, C-suite and senior professionals.

We provide a broad range of services covering:

Executive Search

Drawing on the KPMG network and the experience of our advisers, we undertake a proactive approach to identify and gain the interest of quality candidates particularly those not actively seeking a new position. We utilise proven selection techniques to evaluate candidates' technical competencies, professionalism, personal qualities and organisational fit.

Advertised Selection

Using various forms of media such as online and print advertising we can quickly access a wide range of active candidates. Again utilising our robust approach to candidate evaluation we assist our clients to secure the most suitable executive or professional.


A recruitment solution designed to meet time and cost constraints, our PinPoint service utilises social media and database search including KPMG’s Executive Search & Selection dedicated candidate database and BlueSteps (an international candidate database exclusive to AESC members) to identify and connect with 'semi-active' candidates. Once identified, candidates undergo the same rigours process to enable us to deliver a qualified recommended shortlist to our clients.

Remuneration Services

We work to align executive remuneration strategy to business goals. This is done through our structured and insightful approach that takes into account both organisational needs and marketplace realities.

Board Talent

High performing boards draw on the diversity of skills, experience and background of their members. Utilising our detailed board selection process, we assist in recruiting the best available candidates to complement and enhance the existing board.

Due Diligence

A critical component of any senior appointment is thorough due diligence. Reference checks and our forensic screening service helps to provide confidence in the final appointment.
