We pride ourselves on being a friendly and collegiate place to work. Alongside our values, we believe that diverse experiences, thinking and backgrounds helps us to be a better business and we take deliberate steps to ensure we are inclusive. We’re ambitious and we expect our people to be too. But we also understand that individuals have different needs and ambitions and therefore support these through tailored development plans and opportunities. In addition, we are supportive of different ways of working including flexible and part -time.

Our values

  • We share – What’s best for the company is best for all of us. We achieve more for those we work with and our business when we collaborate, share connections and pool our expertise.

  • We achieve – No matter how high the standards we set ourselves, there is always room to do more. That’s why we are restless in our pursuit of new knowledge, solutions and ideas.

  • We challenge – Thinking independently keeps us on top and ahead of the game. We communicate openly and are not afraid to push boundaries or challenge the status quo.

  • We do what’s right – Our business is about people, not just profits. We value authenticity, integrity and respect, and strive to impact positively on the communities we serve.

Why Be A Partner At Savannah?

Savannah is an informal, supportive and fun environment where every partner is valued, recognised and able to make a material contribution to the firm. As a partner we offer:

  • More autonomy than a larger firm

  • A key part of a young yet well-established and highly regarded growing company

  • A well-resourced and motivated team around you

We have a distinct and compelling proposition with a global outlook, partners who are recognised specialists in their respective markets, integrated search and interim practices and an increasingly diverse offering including leadership assessment and development.

We work together as a team to deliver great results, with every partner bringing complementary expertise and connections. We grow organically, by acquiring individuals who excel at what they do and who can bring something fresh and new to our organisation.

Executive Search

We are lucky to have some of the most well respected and well networked Search partners in our industry working for us. Their combined knowledge and experience makes our Executive Search proposition truly industry leading.

Integrated Approach

Our Search and Interim practices work side by side with the same functional focus across Finance, Digital/Technology and HR. This increases knowledge share, aids collaboration and generates more opportunities.

Interim Management

Our Interim practice is growing rapidly and is viewed as an equal to Search in terms of it’s importance to the continued success of our business. Our partners are top class, many of our mandates are exclusive, and the majority of our work is in the £1,000+ bracket.

Who Are We Looking For?

We are growing the business by adding highly accomplished search and interim practitioners who bring complementary capability to our existing team. This might be through adding greater depth to our existing practices, or adding coverage of a new sector or function including digital, supply chain or legal.

If you browse the profiles of our partners, you will see that there isn’t a mould we hire into, with each partner bringing a blend of different experiences. Perhaps you are considering transitioning from a larger firm into an environment where you will become a more central part of the team and less constrained by peers and borders? Or you might be looking to transfer from a similar sized business where you can enjoy greater support from peers and colleagues?

Whatever your motivation, the one thing that everyone has in common that joins Savannah is that they want to contribute to the continued development of a successful and growing brand.

If that sounds like you then please contact John Ellis to explore the opportunity further.

The service they provide is second to none. They have taken time to understand our brand, mission, values and our requirements and they have always worked at pace to deliver.
