Whether engaging with clients, candidates or peers, La Fosse Associates operates on the premise that a caring, respectful and collaborative culture is not only to be encouraged but expected. It offers executive search and recruitment services, partnering with businesses to help scale their teams from the board down.

With a team of 120 specialist consultants working across three offices in the UK and United States, La Fosse recruits top talent on a permanent, contract and interim basis, spanning from the C-suite and executive positions to middle management and technical roles.

The combination of a top-to-bottom service portfolio, specialist expertise and international network means that it is well positioned to support clients at every level and at every stage of their journey. La Fosse has a proven track record, with a portfolio of clients encompassing start-ups, firms backed by private equity and venture capital, private companies and listed multinationals.

It was founded by Simon La Fosse on the simple principle that treating people well is the right thing to do and a better way to conduct business. That idea is still at the heart of this mid-size operation.

Employee benefits include a company pension, childcare vouchers, gym membership, wellness support, private health discounts and – Covid-19 restrictions permitting – an annual ski trip. It likes to promote from within and 64% of the managers were promoted to their positions from another role at La Fosse.
