I oversee the hiring in Oliver Wyman in EMEA and the US - I have known the River Partnership team for 5 plus years. They have successfully completed searches across the globe - Europe, Asia and the US from mapping through to search completion and across all levels and industries. They have always completed the retained searches, and persistently ensured completion on some very difficult Partner searches. The river team are efficient, timely and persistent in a way that you really partner with them to complete the searches... often being creative and still coming up with a high quality of profiles at the same time. Having worked with all types of head-hunters in my 20 plus years (including the largest) I would always recommend River as they will go above and beyond to complete the search - which they have demonstrated to me and others repeatedly.. Head Experienced Hiring EMEA & US, Oliver Wyman
I have worked with River for a number of years utilising their retained search capability. The team immerse themselves in this market space, in particular they have a wide network of contacts that enables them to keep their fingers on the pulse when it comes to what's happening within the market. River takes a holistic approach to recruitment and takes the time to understand the culture and management style of the Firm and to find suitable candidates which is often lacking in other suppliers but is equally important as the candidate having the right skills. Head of Recruitment, UK Consulting Firm
In my role as recruitment Lead for Partner and Director hiring at KPMG, I have worked closely with River Partnership over the last year. I have been impressed with their professional approach and willingness to partner with me and work towards the delivery of important shared goals. In particular, I felt that their knowledge of search within Professional Services was very credible. Their approach is thoughtful and systematic, and was backed up with deep insight into the functional service lines across Management Consulting and Risk/Regulatory Consulting. As a result, I selected River to lead three retained leadership searches at KPMG. The team worked tirelessly to provide a solution. It's also important to note that these were not easy searches. The diversity requirements were vitally important and the hiring initiatives were both sensitive and critical. On each occasion, River were able to meet the diversity requirements and he delivered the project shortlists on time. The additional market insights that they uncovered though the research stage were also appreciated by the Partner's and formed a valuable part of their decision making. The reports delivered and presented were detailed and comprehensive. River worked in unison with my team and could be relied upon to follow the process correctly with transparency and integrity. In short, I regard River as a valuable search partner who truly wants to work with you to deliver excellent results. I would not hesitate to recommend River Partnership for leadership search and research projects. Partner and Director Hiring, KPMG

The team worked tirelessly to provide a solution. They were committed to providing an exceptional outcome and often went the extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend the River Partnership for leadership search or research projects. Recruitment Leader, UK Big four
I was impressed by their deep knowledge of the regulatory consulting market and am comforted that you understand my background as a prudential supervisor. Prudential risk leader, Global Consulting Firm
River were excellent. Proactive, responsible and eminently sensible. I would definitely use them again. They were head and shoulders above the other search firms we have used at that level. Chief Strategy Officer - Asia Pacific, Global Asset Management Firm
River and the risk team were fundamental to achieving our head count plan. CEO, Global Universal Bank
River identified me as a candidate for my current role. Their energy sector knowledge and ability to match candidates to clients' requirements and culture result in successful outcomes for both. Associate Partner at The Advisory House
We formed a close partnership with River Partnership during a period of rapid growth of the consulting arm of a major global financial services firm. River quickly became our provider of choice due to the consistently high quality of candidates and in particular their ability to accurately navigate very specific, often technical and specialist candidate skills and requirements. Working closely with River we were able to successfully place talent in multiple European locations and with excellent subsequent performance and client satisfaction from that talent pool. Our transparent working relationship and River Partners knowledge of the talent market, financial services and the specific requirements of a consulting business meant that we conducted multiple concurrent searches successfully even when under material time pressure. River became a trusted partner and a key channel for supporting our business growth. Head of Financial Markets Advisory, EMEA, BlackRock
I have to say that I too very much enjoyed partnering with River on this search and was very happy with both the process and the result. I appreciated the sound guidance and advice throughout the process in helping to steer our team. I felt that in particular, you and I worked well together to get our teams where they needed to be to move things forward. You were able to strike a really nice balance of guidance, advice and being open to work with us on the direction we want to take. From a communications perspective, I felt informed but not hounded and I felt you and your team really understood what we needed. I’d be delighted to work with you again. Global Creative Consultancy
