Who We Are

We’re an executive search and recruitment business founded in 2015, on the principle of cultivating genuine relationships. Everyone might say that – we practice it, and are committed to doing the best by each other, our customers and the people they serve.

During the toughest year our global economy has faced in decades, we’re extremely proud to have contributed to the vital Covid support workforce, instrumental in the nation’s fight against the deadly virus. Our passion is delivering highly effective managers, leaders and teams to businesses, knowing that their impact will be valued, and make a difference.  

Throughout 2020, the team at Insight Executive team devoted themselves to our customers, working above and beyond expectation to achieve outstanding results against unprecedented deadlines. Each interaction has been treated with empathy and respect and an unyielding tenacity to get the best results for the people they represent, personifying the very foundation on which we are established – the cultivation of genuine relationships.

What’s in a Name?

Insight Executive Group was inspired by a shared vision of founders Richard Collins and Nick White. They both recognised and understood the frustrations of clients who were tired of transactional recruitment, hard selling techniques, short-term profit strategies, and high consultant turnover, to create a better way of recruiting.

The “Insight Executive Group” name means more to us than a line on a business card. Our intention was to create a new way of recruiting, rooted in meaning. We chose our brand name with care, ensuring it represented our goals and values.


To understand organisation’s inner workings, providing a clear perspective on its needs, and the changes required to help the company thrive.


The power to execute change, positively influence, and achieve great hiring results at all levels, through our partnership-centric approach.


A consultative ethos and commitment to forming a collaborative group of experts to create transformational, sustainable results.
Our Values

We believe in working smart for a balanced life. This means we can get more out of life, whilst still producing excellent outcomes in our work. Our achievements and growth in the search and select industry are due to our personal recruitment style, driven by our core values below.

Insight’s approach to recruitment is different because they have honesty and integrity; not all recruiters have that!

They keep me well appraised of opportunities that suit me, and don’t just try and make opportunities that aren’t relevant fit me.

I have been successfully appointed in a promising post that not only suits my current skills and experience but meets my needs for developing my career. I recommend Insight Executive Group for being very professional, very helpful and honest throughout the process.

I asked Nick at IEG to represent me when I was looking for a new role. His approach and diligence were excellent, and he successfully found me the role I was looking for when I gave him my brief. I would highly recommend Nick both to candidates and companies looking for a very personalised service.
