About Will

I head up our Leadership Practice, working to change the face of executive recruitment. We provide a bespoke, relational and hands-on approach to finding, nurturing and ultimately placing industry leaders for both interim and permanent assignments across our impressive client portfolio.

Our approach is based on a ‘People to People’ approach (P2P), because we are passionate about what we do and how we conduct and deliver our service.

We utilise our proven capability to build relationships with candidates and clients, then focus our approach around them, making our offering collaborative and exceptional.

We work hard to truly understand our candidates. We partner with them to develop a career trajectory plan; a road map of their aspirations and career development. This detailed understanding of their career vision, ethos and values help us place them in organisations where they thrive and drive the business forward.

For our clients, we ensure that the candidates we present are not only outstanding but are the right fit for their business.

We use psychometric testing, biographical CV analysis and face to face interviews to discover the right person for the right role. We only every present two candidates at first interview stage, saving our clients valuable time and energy.

We work both in the UK and globally to fulfil leadership and executive roles for a range of high profile clients.

I bring over 30 years of recruitment expertise into the Leadership Practice, alongside passion, empathy and a strong focus on people centric delivery.

Communication and mutually beneficial relationships are paramount to my role and keeping both candidates and clients properly advised and updated is something I/we deliver across the Leadership Practice.

"It has been a pleasure to work with Will and his company, Rullion. I have just completed a strategic review and consultancy assignment that Will identified and scoped. His assessment of the need and environment when matching my capability and aspiration was highly accurate. He was extremely supportive throughout the assignment maintaining contact to ensure that he understood progress and that it continued to meet my requirements. Will is a great professional who clearly understands the importance of developing honest relationships for the long term.”
