We are proud to have worked with a diverse range of Partners. Most of them, on more than one occasion. We believe that if you do great work, great work comes to you (and we find it helps when you’re nice to people). You can see some of the brands we have worked with below.

“Fortune Hill conducted a global search and provided us with a diverse range of well qualified and culturally suitable candidates. They then ensured we secured our first choice. We have worked with FH for more than 6 years and they have made a significant contribution to Shop Direct’s transformation towards becoming a world-class digital retailer. The team has invested considerable time and energy to develop a deep understanding of our business and culture. Their expertise and approach have consistently delivered excellent results for us.”

Jacqui Humphries

Former Group People Director, The Very Group

"It was a pleasure to partner with Fortune Hill to appoint our UK CMO, a pivotal role within our senior leadership team. They invested significant time to develop a deep understanding of the eBay culture, our objectives and what success in the role would look like. We were impressed by the diversity, quality and breadth of the shortlist, and the way the entire process was managed. We made an exceptional hire thanks to Fortune Hill’s support and expertise"

Rob Hattrell

VP, eBay UK

“I have worked with a large number of Executive Search firms in my career and Fortune Hill's work is of the very highest standard. They provide a deep understanding of the role and organisation, and manage the entire process with transparency, professionalism and enthusiasm. From my perspective the whole experience was very impressive."

Paul Chesworth

Chief People Officer, DAZN

“Joel and his team transformed the way that we recruit senior talent. Their ability to communicate to the marketplace with infectious enthusiasm, passion, and energy significantly increased the calibre of individuals joining the business, and had a direct impact on the performance of the business.”

Richard Harpin

Founder and Chief Executive, HomeServe plc

"The search consultants we have worked with at Fortune Hill are highly experienced and professional in their approach, and we feel represent us very well in the candidate market. In addition, as a boutique partner, we feel that Fortune Hill are flexible and adaptable to our needs, which is not always the case with the larger or more traditional search firms. Fortune Hill have really brought the best talent to Clarks and I would view them as a key partner in our resourcing strategy going forwards.”

Emma Bateman

Group Head of Resourcing, Clarks

"...engaging, professional, passionate, candid and delivers to an exceptional standard... a high level of integrity and humility and is a trusted business partner.”

Defining success

We have a very simple measure of success – that our Partners appoint the very best possible Leader for any given role. We love watching the performance of a business, and the lives of people, improve as a result.
