Private Healthcare (including not for profit)

Collingwood Executive Search has been helping healthcare organisations make senior level appointments for over 10 years. During this period of significant change two aspects have remained constant; the sector’s need for exceptional healthcare leaders and the integrity Collingwood bring to every assignment undertaken.

We headhunt across all senior level disciplines within the sector. Executing an executive search process that finds the highest calibre candidates no matter how challenging the role or diverse the appointment, be it: commercial, strategic, medical or clinical.

We specialise in the independent sector supporting leading private health, social and charitable organisations. We work with a broad range of clients nationally and internationally, including:

  • Private healthcare providers
  • International healthcare organisations
  • Healthcare charities
  • Care homes providers
  • Mental health services
  • Private acute medical care
  • Primary medical care
  • Dentistry
  • Community care providers
  • Occupational health services
  • Social housing organisations 


No matter what your recruitment requirement, our approach is always consultative and highly professional; acting with the gravitas expected at this level. We balance one of our core business values, ‘listening’, with tailored advice borne from our inherent understanding of the marketplace. This allows us to accurately interpret your needs and shape solutions which deliver maximum value.

We are proud of the reputation we’ve built, in part due to our success, but also, through the respect, we show to our ever growing network. We have worked hard to refine and document engagement and communication strategies ensuring clients and candidates are offered an exemplary service.
