Industrial

Providing outstanding leadership talent

Sectors

Many areas of the industrial sector are experiencing unprecedented change as a result of advances in technology, globalisation and the continuous pressure for ever greater efficiency. Our industrial team combines a deep understanding of the sector with a track record in appointing executive and non-executive directors, both internationally and within the UK.

In a world where growth and sourcing opportunities are truly global, UK companies are increasingly looking to recruit senior executives who possess the strategic, commercial, operational and leadership skills required to succeed in a complex global, political and cultural environment.

"Our team thrives on recruiting the very best talent in the sector and related sectors"

The industrial executive search team at Warren Partners truly understands the mix of skills, both professional and behavioural, that leaders need in order to thrive. Indeed our team thrives on recruiting the very best talent in the sector and related sectors, to meet the needs of our industrial clients.

Key areas of specialism include: aerospace, automotive, aviation, construction, defence, engineering, manufacturing, technology, transport & infrastructure, energy & utilities, business services.

Transport and Infrastructure

The team has a depth of understanding, and an international network of influential contacts, that positions us exceptionally well to partner with clients in the UK and globally. Our international executive search services mean we can provide access to those leaders who shape the agenda in an increasingly complex, shifting and volatile environment.

Transport and Infrastructure is the ‘engine room’ of economic activity, and critical to meeting the business and social needs of the world’s populations. The central challenge of all governments is the requirement to improve transport links (within and beyond borders), and ensure the provision of civil infrastructure, homes, and buildings. The diverse and dynamic industry that serves these needs is a bellwether of economic health, continually growing and evolving.

Evolving investment models, and a strong focus on alliancing, are increasingly redefining old boundaries between the public and private spheres, operators, and support service and client organisations. Adaptability, curiosity, stakeholder management skills, and the ability to lead highly diverse teams are now just a few of the skills required by businesses looking to thrive in this climate. We work in partnership with our transport and infrastructure clients, offering leadership counsel to help shape and deliver executive recruitment, as well as specific coaching needs.

Energy & Utilities

The team has experience of working with FTSE 100 organisations through to Private Equity backed start-ups to find the very best talent both within the sector and across complementary markets. We understand the regulatory frameworks, complex environmental, social, political and financial needs of this exciting and globally important market.

As one of UK’s largest independent executive search firms we combine global reach with a personal approach and few off-limits issues. We invest proactively in developing a strong network of talent and understand the leadership skills required within the sector, identifying executives and non-executives with the skills that are pivotal in finding innovative and sustainable ways of meeting the world's need for sustainable resources.

Business Services

Business Services covers a wide and diverse range of industries; here at Warren Partners, our executive recruitment team focuses their expertise in partnering with clients who specialise in outsourcing, business process management and integrated support service provision.

The market environment is complex, influenced by a continued trend towards outsourcing, multiple stakeholders, joint ventures, a profound shift in the geographic distribution of service provision and ever-evolving technology. Complex outsourcing arrangements require clarity of responsibility, commercial structure and service levels, with greater emphasis on sophisticated contracts, which encompass value-share or multi-party arrangements. The value proposition has developed away from the simple removal of cost, towards the improvement of product offering.

Our business services team understands the challenges our clients face and uses their depth of expertise to deliver outstanding results across Business-to-Government (B2G) and Business-to-Business (B2B) environments. Our first-hand experience in this area has allowed us to develop wide-ranging networks of executive and non-executive directors across an array of sectors where service provision enables clients to refocus their value propositions. These include government, defence, security, health, transport, financial services, technology and professional services.
