Securing outstanding leadership talent for our clients.

Hanover Fox International Promise

Our commitment to deliver the highest calibre candidates is backed by our client guarantee.


  • Virgin Media

    When the new high profile role of Analytics Director was created at the heart of the organisation, Virgin Media approached Hanover Fox International

  • Chiltern Railways

    I don’t think we could have found the calibre of people without executive search and in particular, Hanover Fox’s established networks. 

  • Brady plc

    We talked to executive search firms in Geneva, but ultimately we were persuaded by Hanover Fox’s European network and proven experience.

What I liked about Hanover Fox International was their ability to stand up for their arguments and politely steer us in the right direction.
