About us

We are a boutique executive search firm trusted by leading organisations to resolve their most challenging requirements. 

Ellington Savage was founded in 1993 to focus on solving the senior and complex recruitment needs of clients.  Now celebrating our third decade of growth in reach and reputation, we are expert in identifying and attracting talent across industries.  Much of our value lies in understanding how capabilities gained in one industry can transfer to the needs of another - bringing informed views and fresh ideas to each brief. 

What binds us is an unshakable commitment to professional conduct and excellence of service. Honesty, trust and commitment are the foundations to our business partnerships. The careful construction of our client portfolio is designed to minimise any potential for conflict of interest. It also means that our success depends upon growing and retaining key clients and this focus shows in everything that we do.



Our values centre around the simple credo of treating others as we’d expect to be treated. It's reflected in our culture, our operating style, our respect for people, our professionalism and an absolute commitment to candour and transparency.

Our core value is to “treat others the way we would want to be treated”.  Beyond reflecting who we are as people, it is a pillar to our success.  It is a clear differentiator in an industry often criticised for poor service and lack of transparency. It underpins a business that hinges on trust-based relationships and has largely grown through recommendation and word of mouth. We work hard to ensure that candidates feel fairly treated, informed and well advised.  This is core to our proposition and goes to enhancing and protecting the employment brand of our clients.

We are not driven by commissions or revenue targets. We recruit mature professionals who are experts in their field and motivate and support them through a respectful and flexible environment. We have a profit-sharing model that allows all our employees to share in the overall prosperity and success of the business.
