WINNER: Executive talent for the healthcare sector: Hunter Healthcare

Attracting the right people for top positions in NHS organisations is always challenging – and probably more so than ever today.

Hunter Healthcare has been helping the NHS source good candidates for predominately board jobs since 2011. It has had a particular focus on diversity with 41 per cent of its candidates placed in jobs last year being women and 17 per cent of them coming from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. It has worked on the appointment of three of the handful of BAME chief executives in the NHS and aims to ensure that its shortlists reflect the communities successful candidates will serve.
