About Us

About Robert Cavendish

At Robert Cavendish we pride ourselves in being a boutique Executive Search Firm offering personable relationships. RC was formed on the vision that we value and care for our clients and candidates. While there have been opportunities to grow and expand like our competitors, RC knows that to remain dedicated to this core value we need to stay focussed on our clients and that means we persist as a boutique company. Our mission is to optimise leadership by getting our clients the right talent.

We pride ourselves in caring for our clients and candidates and are mindful of their requirements. We build relationships with the people we work with, and thus our interest in their companies and careers extends far beyond our service agreement. Finding the best match for our clients and candidates is what drives us, and we continue to check-in long after a placement.

Robert Cavendish was formed over a decade ago by CEO, Nick Smith. We focus on C-suite, Director and Board level positions in the Financial Service sector, with a special interest in start-ups, FinTechs, and specialist lenders. With our networks and experience, we are perfectly positioned to find you the right interim or permanent leadership for your company. 

We ensure that you can respond to the different market demands and pace of change that today’s businesses are subjected to, by giving you access to the right talent, whether on an interim, permanent, or consulting basis.

RC place significant roles in significant organisations. We work hard to find the right leadership talent for your business; people who will fit in to your culture and quickly deliver value.

We are dedicated which is evidenced by our 100% success rate. RC care about achieving a client and candidate contract based on value creation, not transactional resourcing based on fees and commission.
