Discovering tomorrow’s leaders, today

Over 20 years of executive recruitment in real estate and construction

With a reputation for being the best-connected search firm in the industry, we find leaders who change the very face of the built environment.


The Executives’ choice for recruitment

For many years we’ve been in the business of building relationships. The ones that survive and thrive through thick and thin. This is the Holtby Turner way, and this is how we win. In an ever-changing world, being dependable is an understated luxury.


Discover and Develop Brilliant People

From search to succession planning, we complete and close assignments that others might push to an ‘applicant not found’ pile. By staying connected and in the know, we help clients stay out front and centre in a broad range of sectors across the built environment.


What Others Say About Us

The most important part of our growth plan is attracting, retaining and training people. A big part of my time is spent on recruitment and out of all the partners used in the UK (10+) I can say with confidence that Holtby Turner has been the most successful for executive recruitment in our sector. Holtby Turner runs a disciplined process, conduct detailed interviews and have an extensive network of ‘A-players.’ They also truly want to see your company succeed. Definitely worth the investment.
