Local Government and Public Sector Executive Recruitment

From Chief Executives to Directors and aspiring leaders, Solace in Business has been helping public sector organisations to recruit the highest calibre of candidates for nearly 20 years.

We take pride in our values-led approach, the extensive experience of our professional recruiters, and our trusted networks, all of which give us an unrivalled insight into the public and private sectors. Whatever the assignment, you can rely on us to consistently deliver high-quality recruitment outcomes.

Offering a market-leading combination of search, selection, and assessment, our unique approach adds value at every stage of the project. From the outset, our quality sets us apart. Clients often mention our talent for building open, authentic and professional relationships. Our access to Solace Policy Leads and Boards enriches our sector intelligence, and our business partner programme facilitates access to the private sector, offering a broader insight into current challenges and thinking relating to local government.

We always meet candidates face-to-face because it’s about understanding candidates in terms of style, fit, and approach as much as it is about professional expertise. We’ve long set the industry benchmark for assessment with professional, qualified assessors who have the expertise and experience to design tailored, robust evaluation exercises and produce useful, clear and concise reports.

We are a member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), meaning our systems and processes are audited annually to ensure best practices. We are also ISO 9001 accredited.
