At the top of every organisation, the realisation is growing that effective HR management is key to success – from instilling a culture that fosters continued development to creating an organisation that makes the most of its intellectual resources.

With this recognition comes an ever-increasing demand on the role of the Human Resources Executive. Their contribution is deeply rooted in an inherent understanding and advocacy of people and their performance. So while finding great people is always difficult, this is the pivotal point in the war for talent, which makes finding great HR executives even more difficult – and even more vital.

Our practice in this area is led by a Fellow of the CIPD, lending us the approach of an experienced insider. As such, we’re ready to offer advice and assistance beyond the recruitment arena, with training that champions the case for giving HR a wider role in the boardroom and greater involvement in the development of your organisation.

We understand the importance of attracting, retaining and developing the right HR talent – not least because success in this discipline is so central to everything else we do. For any appointment, we will look at the long-term aims and ambitions from all sides, putting people ahead of process every time.

The private equity and venture capital sector has changed dramatically. The trends that many have relied on no longer apply, while investors have all but ceased putting money into the funds they have backed for years. Traditional exit routes are now often blocked and there has been a remarkable shift in expectations.

This means that the industry is now focusing on portfolio companies – which can often lead to financial and operational change. At Livingston James, we can help implement and manage that change. We work directly for a number of funds, playing a central role in both recruiting investment professionals and in identifying the talent to see strategic transformation through to completion – from filling Non-Executive and Advisory posts to appointing complete Senior Management Teams.

At Livingston James, our approach centres around our experience and understanding of the motivations and intentions behind both the Private Equity Fund and Senior Management Appointment. For us, identifying the right qualities and qualifications is only the start. Our consultants look at more, with an understanding that a successful appointment relies on finding common expectations in terms of both timescales and return on exit.
