We are

Orcid is a vibrant professional community of like-minded senior specialists delivering leadership and talent solutions to a broad range of world class organisations and was founded on the ethos of quality, delivery and shared success.

Without the constraints of a traditional search practice, we provide a values led, collaborative team environment based on doing the things which really make a difference and providing the support, tools and processes we need to deliver for our clients and succeed personally.
While we all have different areas of expertise, every member of our team is a proven leader in their field and we all share the same core values, and most importantly have a passion for going the extra mile to deliver for our clients.

If you have ever dreamed of the freedom and flexibility of running your own business, while wanting to be part of a thriving, supportive, empowering and dynamic team environment – we would love to hear from you. Please contact Louise Gatenby directly for a confidential discussion.
