About Us

The Orchard Talent Group was established in 2016 to assist Human Services organisations to elevate their leadership and volume recruitment capability across corporate, clinical, and operational functions. Our aim is to deliver the market with a bespoke values-driven service that compliments and enhances the work our clients undertake in their communities. Assisting those most in need is central to our DNA.

Orchard provides services across executive search, professional appointments and project placements. Working on executive, senior leadership and managerial appointments on a retained basis, we bring deep sector expertise across the five core vertical practices we work within;

  • Aged Care
  • Disability & Social Services
  • Mental Health
  • Government
  • Public Health & Hospital

Our Executive Search practice works horizontally across our business to deliver on senior leadership appointments at the C-Suite and Board level.

The Opportunity

We are currently seeking an experienced consultant to lead our Executive Search practice and further elevate our offering in the market. With an established practice and network already in existence, a key mandate of this position will be to develop deeper relationships at the executive level and grow the practice further through both personal origination and account management. As a new role within the organisation, there is significant opportunity to create a successful business unit in a supportive environment.

Reporting to the Managing Director, the Head of Executive Search will;

  • Leverage their commercial experience, account management and business development skills to build a high-functioning business.
  • Work in close collaboration with our practices to deliver on senior leadership mandates end to end, providing exceptional client and candidate experience.
  • Actively build strong relationships at the senior leadership level across a range of business settings including those privately owned, publicly listed and for-purpose.
  • Provide expertise, advice, and consultation to identify and promote solutions to solve talent pain points within our client cohort.

As a senior leader within the business, this role will directly lead and mentor a support team to achieve both individual and group goals.

As a business, Orchard will provide you a varied and challenging role with a high level of autonomy. With a high-performance and merit-based culture in place, there are numerous opportunities for continued progress. In addition, we have a transparent and generous uncapped remuneration model.

About You

The successful candidate will bring a demonstrated track record of origination and growth within a senior recruitment role managing a budget. With confidence to hold CEO and Board relationships, you will have a track record of successfully engaging senior leaders to secure and deliver on senior mandates. With a great culture in place, you will have the ability to work both independently and within a team, providing mentorship and leadership to more junior colleagues.
