Our Approach

At Equus International we are very clear that each assignment is unique. It will be shaped by our client's needs, priorities and ethos, while being influenced by the markets in which they, and we, operate. We listen and understand first, then act; developing, agreeing and delivering a solution that meets those needs in the most effective and efficient fashion.

Where appropriate we look for people who will lead, direct, and transform their organisations. Often we enable our clients to make radical, sometimes uncomfortable changes.

We take a personal, relationship-centred approach to every assignment. This fosters genuine partnership and commitment between ourselves, our clients and our candidates.

Fresh, innovative, diligent

Thriving businesses are those that are able to challenge the status quo, creating and exploiting new opportunities. Doing this requires outstanding leaders who are open to influences from both inside and outside their organisations. Our task is to ensure that our clients have leaders who can set and achieve the most ambitious goals, creating the strongest possible teams and optimising stakeholder return.
