Welcome to Atticus Partnership

"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it"
Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird - by Harper Lee)

Butterflies embody transformation; at Atticus Partnership we believe in transforming lives, of both our clients and of those key individuals that we place.

Atticus Partnership is a 'true' senior executive search firm without compromise.

As with any self-respecting search firm we can:

  • "help maximise your ROI through human capital enhancement"
  • "identify and attract world class leaders that will help to transform your organisation through achieving competitive advantage and delivering sustainable value"
  • "we can even help build the best leadership teams in the world"

These are all noble and impressive claims, it would however be misguided to assume that these claims are the answers to your business' needs. Your organisation may want to transform or achieve double-digit growth but equally it may want to consolidate, stabilise and even downsize.

Let's not lose sight of our core purpose - we partner with organisations to source individuals that can deliver results within the context of their business, within their market and with their specific challenges.

"The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office." Dwight David Eisenhower.   "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes)   "Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant." Horace   "We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges" Tim Bernes Lee.   "The noblest search is the search for excellence" Lyndon Baines Johnson.   "I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a 'transformer' in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader." Stephen R. Covey    "If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is no barking dog to be tethered to a 1-foot chain." Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno   "Diversity: the art of thinking independently together." Malcolm Stevenson Forbes   "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view - until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird.   "Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful" Dr Samuel Johnson   "Talent is never static. It's always growing or dying" Stephen King         "The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity.
