Taking executive search to the next level

Exceptional candidates are hard to find, so we work harder to find them.

At SWR we are harnessing a new approach to technology, collaboration and research to offer you a new level of search presence and capability across New Zealand.


SWR is strongly represented both in Wellington and Auckland, sharing opportunities across both cities and nationally- ready to provide personal interaction.

With senior search experts backed by highly capable research consultants, we engage personally – at a level rarely seen in the search industry.

Research and collaboration

SWR Group’s executive search skills are supported by leading research capability, in which we have invested like few others.

Our experienced research consultants work locally and nationally, collaborating across the group on each opportunity. We also reach out globally through our membership of the Taplow Group – which has 100+ senior consultants in offices across Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.


In this age of digital simplicity, we bring new levels of transparency to executive search, opening it all up to give you demonstrable value. We are ahead of the evolution of executive search.

By blending our extensive search experience with a new approach to technology, we have created an innovative platform that demystifies the search process for you by offering 24/7 real-time, interactive information for everyone involved.

The result: real transparency, open communication and visibility throughout the process. You’ll be engaged with us on the journey from day one.
