Placing the top PR & communications leaders over 15 years

Since launching in 2002, we have grown into award-winning PR and communications experts, identifying and placing talent across healthcare, consumer, technology, corporate and financial markets, for brands and agencies.

We have placed some of the best talent in PR & communications into leading roles in the UK, Europe, Asia, MENA, Africa, and North America. We’ve partnered with a diverse client base – working with the likes of Bacardi, Teneo Blue Rubicon, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Cohn & Wolfe, BMI Healthcare and HS2 – to name a few. Thanks to our network of ‘Hanson Friends’, our reach has no bounds.

We specialise in mid-to-senior-level roles, from managers and directors, up to the senior leadership team, including MDs, CEOs and board-level positions.

Many of our recruitment and executive search specialists come from industry backgrounds. That means that they know the challenges you’re facing, the trends in your industry, and they’re uniquely placed to help advise you and find the talent you need.
