Maximize your potential through the appointment of market-leading talent.

About us

Discover Hidden Talent

More Often Than Not, The Best Person For The Job Is Already Doing It. For Somebody Else.

At Edward Drummond, we enable global FTSE-100 companies, LLPs and fast growth SMEs to maximize their potential through the appointment of market-leading talent.

We are an international executive search and research team, providing a high-calibre service to identify, reach and recruit high calibre achievers.

Our combined experience spans more than 50 years, with a team of specialists who are all expert, professional and consultative.

We See Things Differently.

When you need an exceptional person, we are specialists at finding proven performers, executives and non-executives recognized for their ability, insight, leadership and growth potential, not just their circumstance or visibility.

If you think you’ve found the right person, we employ confidential due diligence processes to provide essential insights – personal and professional characteristics, business development record and potential – to help you make the right choice.

With offices in London and Bristol, we work with international partners in 26 countries, around the world.

Wherever they are based. Whoever the needle. Whatever the haystack. We pinpoint individuals who tick every box for each unique need.
