Project Manager

Perrett Laver is the leading international executive search firm supporting on the recruitment of outstanding leaders for ‘purpose-driven’ sectors in over 70 countries worldwide. Ranked among the top 40 search firms globally, we work for clients who are shaping some of the most important outcomes in our world today. 

The Role 

Project Managers are integral to the executive search process and are responsible for ensuring our clients, candidates and colleagues receive world-class administration across all areas of the business. 

The role requires a person of considerable talent who has the ability and highly developed organisational skills to proactively juggle multiple tasks and perform them at pace with accuracy and excellent attention to detail. Excellent time management skills, the ability to prioritise, multitask and remain calm and professional under pressure while working to tight deadlines are all keys to success.

There is substantial contact with both clients and candidates, so highly developed interpersonal and communication skills are essential, including a strong customer service ethos and an appreciation of the importance of quality, discretion, and integrity. 

The position also requires a personable nature with strong teamwork skills who is willing to actively contribute and support internal project teams and colleagues more generally. 

This position will be based in Perrett Laver’s London office. Perrett Laver supports a flexible hybrid working model.

Perrett Laver believes that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. A broad range of perspectives, backgrounds and opinions amongst our global community of colleagues is crucial in maintaining our culture of openness, intellectual curiosity, and creativity. We take an active role in supporting under-represented communities and groups in becoming better and more fairly represented in the leadership of all organisations. We also know that diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on our ability to identify, engage and secure candidates from these groups.

Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, and experience drives us every day – for clients, for candidate identification and in the recruitment, development and retention of colleagues. 

To ensure inclusion on the basis of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstance, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, political or religious beliefs, race, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, we would like to specifically invite applications from under-represented groups.

If you wish to apply, please send a CV and covering letter detailing your motivation and interest in this position. Please note that applications without a letter will not be considered.

Due to the volume of applications, we will only notify shortlisted applicants. This role will be open until filled.
