Executive Search & Board Advisory

With a world class reputation for executive recruitment in capital intensive industries, Downing Teal is engaged by many companies to identify candidates for Company Director, CEO, ‘C-Level’ and senior ProfessionalExecutive Management roles. The objective of an executive search process is to identify, qualify and assess leading industry executives and professionals in line with our clients’ needs and expectations; regionally, nationally or internationally.

These types of roles are seldom advertised, due to their confidential nature. Similarly, senior candidates do not search job boards looking for their next appointment, and many may not have a public profile or even a resume. Of course, executive search assignments are conducted with the utmost discretion and confidentiality, in keeping with the strategic nature and value of the roles.

Executive search is a speciality. Downing Teal is one of few organisations with the experience, knowledge and reach to undertake  executive search assignments with consistent success. Our Senior Consultants have 50 years of corporate experience behind them, deep and extensive networks of industry contacts, and intimate knowledge of the industries involved.  Supported by our international research team, they can quickly identify, qualify and assess competent senior executives and professionals, no matter where in the world they are to be found.

If you would like to discuss a possible executive search requirement or know more about our capabilities, contact our Managing Director John Downing, other Directors or senior managers listed here.

Board Consulting

Our business is built on senior level recruitment at executive, professional, and technical levels made possible by deep knowledge, understanding and experience across the mining, resources and construction sectors upon which we focus and specialise.  The skills and experience, intrinsic to our expertise and success, allow discussion and interaction at senior executive and Board level, across a broad range of issues, beyond recruitment.

Our widely experienced teams regularly engage at senior levels on matters as diverse as organisation design, succession planning, project teams, skills and experience acquisition, salary reviews, and acquisition strategies.

At Downing Teal, our success is based on a consultative capacity, style and understanding of the broad role of human capital in your mining, resources or construction business.
