Our Difference

The Fortune Hill Difference

At Fortune Hill we’ve spent more than a decade standing up to out-dated industry norms. We’ve crafted the most efficient and effective approach to the search process, coupled that with a genuine passion for HR and Marketing, and built a team with extensive, valuable client-side experience.

Experience & Understanding

We’ve sat on the other side of the table. Our very own Directors are both experienced HR Leaders, both former Search firm customers. They saw an opportunity to do things better.

Our starting point is always to listen intently. We couple empathy for our Partners with a healthy dose of challenge and dialogue. We prioritise our Partners' interests, above our own.

Everything we do, from our process and our terms of engagement, to our relentless focus on delivering outstanding results, is born of a desire to make a massive positive difference to our Partners' organisations.

World Class Research

We embrace a science-driven, data-led approach to talent acquisition and Leadership search.

At Fortune Hill, we consider a rigorous, research-led approach to be the foundation of successful Leadership appointments. Our blend of care, energy and curiosity gives us the impetus to search widely, source extensively, and assess thoroughly to identify the right Leader to suit each partner’s unique needs.

“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.”
