Executive Search Professionals

Our Clients

  • We found Forme to be consultative and delivery focused. Our brief required a deep understanding of the sector and the shortlist was exactly on brief. Forme Partners is a differentiated concept and one we would support.

    Investor, Leading VC

  • Searches have always been efficiently run with Forme. Their challenge around a role and candidates is of a high standard. My network who know of them say they are stand-up advisors and I would agree.

    CEO, SaaS VC Backed Business

  • Working with Forme has helped us on several occasions get the brief right from the beginning, deliver exceptionally strong shortlists and results. They manage key stakeholders well. I would recommend Forme Partners highly on this basis.

    Investor, Leading VC

  • Forme know their stuff - they have a good feel for business and the best fit. I regularly call them for there take on the market, ideas on different types of candidates and would certainly mandate them on relevant C-level searches.

Our Model

We are search professionals who:
  • Spend more time upfront challenging the client on want vs what they need
  • Use our network to reference, source extensively resulting in more successful outcomes and placements
  • Act as sounding boards for clients who need advice on best structure, cultural fit and roles required within management team
  • Work to the founders timeframes and ways of working
  • Act as an extension of the client brand

join us

We are always looking for like minded and passionate individuals with proven experience in relevant markets to join our team.

We are building a special brand and believe that we can add real value to our clients, proving this through business success and the longevity of our relationships. The search industry has a negative reputation because it is reactive, transactional and less about understanding the markets our clients are in. This is where we have a tremendous opportunity to build our brand on advising, partnering with and holding our client’s hands through appointing the most exceptional talent. Working with us, you will learn about executive search, be mentored and part of a brand our clients trust and rely on.
