Remuneration Benchmarking and Advice 

Many of our clients engage us to provide independent remuneration advice in regard to executive, management and technically specialised positions. Due to our extensive and consistent recruitment activity across most industries, we are able to keep a constant finger on the pulse of remuneration trends in the South Australian marketplace. 

Independent Executive Performance Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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
