About Us

We are a research-driven, global Executive Search company specialising in the Oil & Gas, Construction and Financial  sectors. Our senior team has a unique blend of highly experienced industry professionals and executive staffing experts. This combination of consultants who have worked directly in the sectors with high capability executive search professionals gives us tremendous insight into both role requirements and individual candidate capability.

As our resourcing business has evolved our focus has sharpened and our range has increased. We are a global organisation with headquarters in London. Worldwide, we have resourcing specialists in every continent.

Research-Driven Executive Search

Our prime candidates are sought out and targeted by our research teams in response to a client’s brief. Most targets may not even be considering a move as they are enjoying success in their current role. Advertising campaigns and job board postings which attract candidates of variable quality are not a part of our core strategy.

It is a fact that most of our active search time is spent on the telephone – and not on a computer. We do maintain a current database and have an active social networking strategy, but our central approach is founded on talking directly to people and utilising our personal industry contacts in our specialist sectors.

Focused Sector Experience and Responsiveness

Our specialist sectors include Oil & Gas and Construction. Intense specialisation delivers market knowledge and insight that arises from our Orca Technical Associates (‘OTAs’). Our OTAs are industry professionals who have worked directly in the sectors in operational and management roles. Coupling that practical insight and deep expertise with our personal approach and flat structure gives us an executive search and placement model of outstanding responsiveness which delivers outstanding results.


During my time in Petronas Exploration & Production (2013 - 2016), I have received services by Omid to identify suitable candidates for key roles in the area of E&P Project Management. Omid has always acted with the highest level of integrity in his role. He was on top to identify possible candidates and has followed through to achieve the best result for all parties concerned. He has been following up on his commitments, which demonstrated that he is a reliable person to work with. During periods of difficult negotiations in the Asian context, he showed that he has the individual strength to master challenging situations. Without any doubts, I am comfortable to recommend his services to other customers.
