About us

Alex Osborne, Director at Shackleton Search, personally knows three families descended from crew members that joined Ernest Shackleton on his expeditions. Having researched and been inspired by their trips to the Antarctic we have named our Executive Search business after their fearless leader, Sir Ernest Shackleton. He understood the hunger for adventure in the hearts of men, when adversity struck he kept the team focused on their routine, put his own life on the line and never wavered from his commitment to a challenge. He embodies our company values and remains today a beacon for management, leadership and endurance. 

At Shackleton Search we are assigned niche roles by our clients and embark on a voyage of discovery to source top talent globally.

Our explorations set sail far and wide, from London to Copenhagen, New York to Dublin.  We proactively map and traverse local markets, assess the best candidates and bring a selected handful to the interview table.

Our candidate management process includes a detailed interview, presentation of resume, full briefings pre/post interview, expectation and offer management, post-placement care.  Shackleton Search work on various projects which include either contingent or retained search solutions.  We focus on two key industries, Management Consultancy & Business Information, so we have developed a niche network of candidates. 

Using modern day versions of compasses, pendulums and telescopes we are able to emulate the great explorers of yesteryear and go on a quest to unearth those hidden treasures in your industry sector.
