Mid To Senior Level

We typically focus on supporting our client partner firms who are going through a start-up/ramp-up phase, or who alternatively have a requirement for a strategic hire(s) at the mid-senior level within a particular niche area.

Board Appointmnets

We partner with and act as a trusted advisor to global organisations seeking to appoint Chairs and Independent Non-Executive Directors to their boards.
Board composition is increasingly important in today’s rapidly shifting environment and underpins the success of every organisation. Organisations trust us to build and enhance their boards.

We work with clients who understand the significance of diverse thinking and gender balance within board environments. This approach, in addition to our extensive experience operating at corporate boardroom level, means that organisations trust us to build and enhance their boards.

Interim Management

The modern ever changing business environment demands strategic and operational leadership that can foresee and respond to shareholder and customer need. Often times, this demand leads to changes in management with a requirement for a short and medium term executive talent.

Aperture Partners works closely with a wide range of clients on a full spectrum of Interim appointments of varying duration. An Interim appointment can provide strategic, operational and actionable support to help our clients deliver effective results.

Interim Appointments

An Interim appointment is typically a short/medium term senior level appointment with a view to specific objective achievement, such as, process improvement, restructuring or a stand-in appointment while a long-term permanent Executive is recruited. At Aperture Partners we have successfully worked with clients on varying roles:

  • Finance Director, Finance Manager, Financial Controller
  • Programme Director

Interim Engagement

Aperture Partners actively develops and maintains a deep network of experienced industry professionals, many of whom have been trained by or lead functions in blue chip organisations, including Big 4, PLC and global technology innovators. Our client firms typically engage with an Aperture Interim professional via a third party umbrella or limited company, providing a level of flexibility and security suiting the needs of both the client and the professional. We are able to provide this exceptional support thanks to our unique client centred approach, identifying and guiding our clients on their potential needs for contract Interim management.

On that basis I would have no hesitation in recommending Rory for any mid to senior level appointments.

Jonathan has successfully placed several candidates within my team, and other teams within the bank. In the past, it has been difficult to get candidates with the relevant skill-set and experience, but Jonathan consistently hits the mark. Furthermore, he ensures each candidate who arrives for interview has been briefed fully on the role and our products – its a refreshing change.

A key plus for me in dealing with Jonathan was that he had a really good understanding of the industry he was recruiting into and was able to discuss the role I was considering in quite a bit of detail which was very important to me.
