Executive Search


Rice Search Partners is a global executive search boutique with more than 25 years’ experience delivering senior human talent solutions around the world. With offices in both New York and London, we have successfully placed candidates in 67 major global centres.

Our core philosophy is that the best way to deliver value is through long-term market specialisation. This allows consultants to build both knowledge and networks, enabling us to provide strategic advice and market intelligence to both candidates and clients. An important (and complementary) part of our search business are bespoke strategic research pieces. These comprise around 20% of our projects.

Our core areas of focus are:

  • Front Office Investment & Distribution
  • Corporate Functions
  • Digital, Data, Technology & Operations

Rice Search Partners looks to partner with clients over the long-term and has many clients with whom we have worked for more than fifteen years.

Our client base spans the financial services, professional services, technology and energy markets.

The leadership team (who average more than 12 years with the firm) has a passion for delivering strong, robust, and diverse candidate short-lists. 60% of Rice Search Partners' placements since 2018 have been diverse (across gender, BAME, LGBTQ+, the disabled, & veterans) and the Rice team is itself 70% plus diverse.
