From search to succession planning

Holtby Turner delivers a bespoke search and leadership service that sets everyone up for long-term success. In the rapidly changing world of real estate, we ensure that you hire the type of adaptive and forward-thinking leaders who embrace transformation, with resilience.

Appointments That Last

The candidates we place strike an above average success rate - often rising to the very top. That’s why we stress-test and evaluate skills with such depth - we care far beyond the initial placement. Many people we have placed have gone on to reach the highest levels of seniority, and become leading figures in the real estate world.

Development & Advisory

Leadership Transition

We’ve helped hundreds of leaders hit the ground running by onboarding them before they join. Role clarity is established and milestones are set, with early wins every time. We set performance indicators to accurately monitor and manage expectations so everyone is set up for success.

Board Advisory

Holtby Turner’s NEDs have extensive experience in the property and construction sector and have
helped us to expand our network of senior professionals. They also provide us with excellent advice on succession planning, board advisory services and thought leadership within the industry.

Talent Development

Created collaboratively with industry experts, we offer 360-degree assessments for team or individual profiling, using specialist techniques developed by Belbin, Thomas International and SDI. Our bespoke development programmes consistently deepen self-awareness and personal impact - often with overnight success.

Executive Coaching

Not one client has ever regretted investing in coaching its top players, for the benefits are abundant. One-to-one executive coaching helps leaders achieve specific goals quickly and with maximum effect, driving results for your organisation. Whether managing transformation or restructuring a team, the finest leaders all have coaches.

Succession Planning

Ensuring business continuity after senior management changes is the lifeblood of every market leader. We critically review your leadership team, and identify leaders with the vision and tenacity to deliver your legacy for the next five to ten years - addressing weaknesses and threats head on.


In the fast-evolving world of the built environment, re-organisation can mean that people have to be let go. Holtby Turner provides a much-needed dose of diplomacy and practical guidance throughout the outplacement process. With a highly sensitive style of coaching we identify an individual's skills, finely tune their interview techniques, polish their CV and often introduce them to potential new opportunities.
