The professional services sector is multifaceted, and each field has its own challenges and opportunities.

As specialists in professional services recruitment, Boyden has helped strengthen numerous organisations by securing mission-ready interim management focusing on the following subsectors:

Many of us hail from top-tier consulting firms and have relationships with respected firms worldwide. We recruit interim Partners, Directors and Principals in various disciplines including strategy, operations, technology, process improvement, turnarounds and restructuring and risk advisory.
Tax, Audit & Accounting: Many accounting firms are expanding their services to include strategy, technology and other new specialties. This is creating time-sensitive human capital and leadership issues. Through talent mapping, big data and cross-practice collaboration, we efficiently deploy highly qualified interim C-level executives, principals and directors, as well as entire teams for clients ranging from Big Four to boutique firms.
Legal Services: When clients require interim leadership to navigate challenges in the legal profession, we focus on individuals with strong regulatory expertise and business acumen, who can serve as both legal advisors and strategic business partners. Working with in-house legal teams and law firms, we recruit for roles such as Business Development Head, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Chief Legal Officer/General Counsel, CIO and COO.
