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.

Shaun Laubscher, Group Head of Talent - Spirax-Sarco
Tucker Stone have completed a number of assignments for me in developing the HR function at Spirax Sarco. I have always had positive candidate feedback which is very important as any search partner is speaking on your behalf so the overall experience, not just the outcome, is important to me. Tucker Stone have a good eye for broader cultural fit, personal values and identifying HR professionals with the insight and intellect to grow with our business.
Jim Devine, Group HR Director - Spirax-Sarco Engineering
I’ve worked with Tucker Stone as both a client and candidate and there is a simple reason for that. As a candidate, they were one of very few recruiters who truly cared about the candidate experience, were hugely responsive and inspired trust and confidence. That’s why they were a go to person for me in finding a Head of Talent and Development for my own team. Their knowledge of the HR function goes without saying and what I really valued was their understanding of my goals, the speed of delivery, the customer focus, the diversity of thought throughout the search process, the open and honest discussions that we were able to have and of course, the end result - a great hire for my team.
Andrea Sutherill, HR Director, People & Wellbeing - BRE
Tucker Stone came highly recommended as a company that understands progressive talent in the People space. They were tasked with sourcing MOO a best in class Head of People & Culture. Expectations are always high at MOO and compromises are rarely made. Finding the combination of skills and capability with the right cultural fit can be extremely difficult. We are delighted with the service and would highly recommend Tucker Stone to any company that wants to break the mould with a different type of HR leader.
