Even the most senior of executives and leaders can benefit from independent advice and honest feedback. Ian Dunbar has worked with numerous executives over many years in assisting them with career development. At the simplest level, this involves making a few suggestions to fine-tune a CV, but often involves detailed review and reconstruction of a CV, career counselling and advice, crafting of applications, or mediation with ‘problem’ referees.
Additionally, as our Clients page shows, Ian has consulted to many leading organisations, in various sectors, and in numerous countries. Consequently, he has been on the receiving end of more than 70,000 CVs. This wealth of experience means that he knows what in a CV resonates with clients and search consultants.

Please note that there may be a conflict of interest in providing these services to an individual, where we have been retained by a client to conduct a search for a particular role, and that individual is a candidate for that role. In such instances, we will be open with both the client and the candidate to ensure that the conflict is addressed. Additionally, under certain circumstances, we commit to refunding fees for career management services where we place a candidate with a client, and earn a fee from that client.
