Winfield Search is a specialist practice providing executive search services across
Commerce and Industry and the Professional services sector.
Our Clients are diverse and range from Owner Managed Business, Private
Equity and Venture Capital backed entities to public quoted multinationals and
International Conglomerates.

Our credo as a boutique firm is underlined by our track record of repeat
business from a select client base which diminishes "off limit" constraints and
thereby maximises our ability to shortlist the very best talent available. Clients
enjoy our transparent, collegiate and pragmatic approach to partnering them in
their talent management solutions.

Professional pace, perception and personal service are 
the values that underpin our modus operandi.
