about us

David Abbott and Partners has been providing Executive Recruitment services to the Technology, Media and Business Services sectors since 1989.

We believe success in recruitment requires an affinity with a client's culture and an understanding of the position to be filled, combined with the ability first to identify and then to attract, star candidates. These attributes must be underpinned by first class communication skills and a methodical, thorough set of processes.

Our success is based on the following principles:

  • We listen more than we speak
  • We give straight advice
  • We commit to tangible deliverables and timescales
  • We communicate regularly
  • Integrity, confidentiality and reliability are paramount


David Abbott and Partners specialises in helping our clients to fill key management appointments. We have recruited Chief Executives for public and private companies as well as functional heads of Marketing, Sales, Operations, Information Systems and HR.

We don't undertake mass recruitment campaigns (although we're happy to advise our clients on how best to do so), but specialise in assignments where a more bespoke, personal service is required.

Our clients

We take a long-term view of our client relationships and believe that being awarded subsequent assignments is more important than winning the first.

We have made many successful appointments in world-class companies such as Apple, BMW, Compaq, Fremantle Media, Sony and Veolia

In recent years we have also worked extensively with smaller growing businesses, in some cases to help them recruit entire management teams. Clients in this category include : Alsbridge, Companeo, Incisive Media, Innovision, MicroDrainage, Motivcom, Nlyte, Thomsons Online Benefits and TMP.

We take pride in the consistently high level of repeat business we generate and the fact that many of our candidates choose to become clients.
