Leaders in diverse professional talent

Sapphire Partners was founded in January 2005.  The firm focuses on executive search for world-class client companies that believe in and support diversity, across a range of sectors in both executive and non-executive roles.

Sapphire Partners are passionate believers in diversity and have a unique expertise in providing creative and balanced shortlists. Working closely with our clients and candidates we promote and bring diverse professional talent to deliver business excellence.

In our searches, we place exceptional professionals who can meet the demands of world-class organisations. We have a global reach, consistently delivering inclusive and innovative results.

Sapphire always includes women on our shortlists and over the last nine years, 65% of our placements have been women.

Sapphire actively contributed to the Davies’ Inquiry on women on boards and drafting of the voluntary code for search firms and was one of the early signatories and supporters of the 30% Club. Sapphire Partners now one of a “super group” of search firms involved with tightening the voluntary code of conduct for search firms to promote diversity.
