For us, it’s personal
Tucker Stone boasts a team of highly experienced, credible, and deeply-networked consultants, focused on delivering an unrivalled service to our clients.
Each of our consultants feels a keen sense of pride and desire to be the best in the marketplace but we recognise, and celebrate, that we are strongest as a team. We share networks, best-practice and thought leadership with one another, to ensure our clients benefit from our constant collaboration, and continued learning.
Our connections are forged within the dynamic Global HR Leadership community, but our daily conversations extend to founders, CEOs, investors & board members grappling with the critical challenge that leaders face to attract, engage, develop & retain the only real differentiator in the modern business world – people. Partnering with our team will ensure you hire the CHRO or CPO, whose mission it is to embed a culture which will enable your business to thrive.
Our success is hinged upon keeping pace with innovation and our uncompromising search for the highest quality and diversity of talent for your business.
We understand the importance of relevant industry experience but we also appreciate the synergies between certain sectors. We challenge our clients to employ HR leadership from outside of their immediate industry and, in certain cases, from outside a traditional HR background. No two of our search assignments are the same and nor is the talent pool we create for each project.
Where capability meets culture
Our job is to get the measure of a company culture, a leadership team dynamic, the business strategy, purpose & values, and, ultimately, the people strategy which winds its way into all of these elements. We research, we identify, we meet & interview potential candidates to ascertain their relevance & experience for each of our searches.
The art of search is to use our intuition, honed over 15+ years, to know who will thrive and succeed with whom, who will enrich a leadership team, challenge the status quo, and make dynamic & sustainable change.
What we offer
Our unrivalled network of global HR leaders, our team of expert search consultants, and our digital toolkit ensures that we offer our clients the best in agile search.
Access to our ever-expanding community of HR Interim Leaders & Change Agents, who provide an invaluable service at times of ambiguity or transformation, with maximum impact, minimum fuss.
Private Equity investment invariably means huge change for organisations – financially, structurally and culturally. Investment brings huge opportunity but also new pressures & expectations on the leadership team. Tucker Stone understands the need for an HR Leader to support, challenge and guide the CEO & their top team, as they navigate their way through the change journey. The search was thorough, professional, efficient and successful.

I would highly recommend Tucker Stone to any organisation seeking a Search partner that truly understands the brief, provides an inclusive shortlist, and genuinely listens to what is required.

Group HR Director - Costain Group PLC
Matt is amazing. His particular strength, despite his obvious interpersonal ease, is actually listening and empathy. He knows the market broadly, and many of the people know and like him (which opens further doors). He is able therefore to access candidates whom others could not, due to the strength of his relationships. He is ably supported by some effective team members who help him deliver on his promises by managing the logistics – all with a really nice deft touch.

I met with Tucker Stone to discuss our plan to recruit an Exec-Level CPO: a critical hire at a time of international growth and investment. The team advised us on the HR marketplace, supporting us in shaping the scope of the role in line with our needs. The search was thorough and timely. It was not without its challenges as we explored the right capabilities for Indigo in line with our growth strategy but we are extremely pleased with the outcome.
Chief Executive Officer - Indigo
It was Tucker Stone’s specialist expertise, particularly in PE backed businesses that was a major draw. The team is easy to deal with and they deliver. The open and direct comms combined with the very fast turnaround on shortlisted candidates combined with ease of contracting at the end was appreciated greatly. They were recommended to me through a trusted contact and given my experience, I would absolutely recommend them to my network.
