Your long-term search partner, specialising in the nuclear, marine, automotive, defence & aerospace sectors.

Specialist boutique practice

Stonehouse Search and Selection is an independent, boutique practice, focused on senior and board level, technical and specialist appointments across the Nuclear, Marine, Automotive, Defence and Aerospace sectors. We specialise in Design, Build, Test, Electronics Control & Instrumentation, Programme Management, Safety and Human Factors.

The Stonehouse Search and Selection practice is founded on a proven process that has stood the test of time. Coupled with hard work, leading-edge technology and sound advice, we deliver a unique technical and executive research process to find and attract genuine talent that will help give you the competitive edge that you seek. Over the last five years, the Stonehouse process has achieved a 95% success rate.

For example, a client asked us to find an Engineering Director with a design background in large carbon structures. They had been searching for a long time without success. Such expertise sits with the manufacturers of fast cars and luxury superyachts. Our client was stuck – they needed someone creative who understood the technology, the industry and its people. We found him. No stone unturned.

In-depth, long-term, effective relationships

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not simply get the brief, fill the post and collect the fee. Our culture is much more than that – it is all about taking the time to get to know our candidates and clients, working together to develop in-depth, effective relationships – for the long term.

We don’t want to just fill a vacancy – we want to understand your business sufficiently well, to help fulfill your strategic objectives.All too often, the process finishes when the appointment is made. Our ongoing service helps to ensure the long-term success of new appointments by providing management coaching – extremely effective for existing team members as well as for new starters.

No stone unturned

From experience, we understand what it takes to find and recruit the very best talent – we know that it is by no means easy. You will find that we are totally committed to matching world-class candidates with world-class clients. By leaving no stone unturned, we aim to become your long-term search partner – our outstanding success rate proves it.
