Due to our extensive professional networks, the firm is regularly engaged to identify and appoint Non Executive Directors for both the commercial and not for profit sectors. 

General People and Culture Advice 

The highly experienced Hender Consultants are regularly engaged to provide formal and informal advice in the areas of human resources strategy, succession, retention, leadership, structure and culture. 

For a confidential discussion or enquiry regarding any of the services above, please call us on +61 8 8100 8888 or email our General Manager – Andrew Reed at andrew.reed@hender.com.au 

At Hender Consulting, we take an ethical approach to recruitment and associated services for our client – the employer. To this end, and due to the inherent conflict of interest that it creates, Hender Consulting does not provide commercial executive mentoring or coaching for candidates but can recommend highly competent providers of such services. We are also not providers of industrial relations legal advice but can refer you to appropriate professionals from our extensive and trusted networks. 

Our People

At Hender Consulting, our consultants and support professionals are carefully chosen based on experience, professionalism, authenticity, integrity, judgement and unwavering client focus. The firm has a remarkable and uncommon record securing and retaining some of the most experienced professionals in the industry and beyond. 

Having the most experienced and stable executive recruitment team in South Australia creates value for the client due to our: 

  • Capacity to understand, scope and deliver complex executive search due to our extensive professional networks and experienced researchers
  • Significant intellectual property regarding executive candidate calibre
  • Understanding of the key industries and demographics affecting the SA economy and labour market
  • Knowledge of current remuneration trends across disciplines and industry settings
  • Experience navigating the complexities, sensitivities, risks and communication strategy required during important executive appointments
  • Extensive experience assessing leadership traits through rigorous assessment methodologies
  • Capacity to conduct effective due diligence on candidates including but not limited to rigorous reference and qualification checking
  • Preparedness to offer objective, independent and well reasoned and researched advice without fear or favour
