Talent acquistion experts in Legal, Compliance, Risk & Governance.
What we do
Our team at Halliford Partners has a combined total of more than 30 years’ experience in recruitment and research.

We have vast knowledge and experience of the recruitment process of researching and mapping Senior Legal, Regulatory, Compliance and Governance professionals into Financial Services, Energy & Power, Pharmaceuticals, Not for Profit and Professional Services organisations.

Our principal team have worked together prior to the inception of Halliford Partners and by bringing together our joint expertise and experience, we are able to offer a sound understanding of our clients’ talent pools and thus conduct each project effectively and expeditiously.

Working with clients who take responsibility for their impact on the world, we too believe this is an essential part of our business. Every year Halliford Partners donates a percentage of our annual profits into charitable causes and each member of the team chooses a personal cause they wish to donate to.
