Private Sector

I'm Joseph Henry, Managing Partner of Westminster Search. I'd like to introduce both myself and Westminster Search and give a brief overview of how we can help your organisation with any recruitment challenges you may face.

About Me

I have worked in both recruitment and politics, which has given me a great understanding of both sectors. During my time in politics I worked for a Chairman of Select Committee and a Deputy First Minister of Scotland, which gave me a unique insight into the way the political world works. I use this expertise to help me recruit the best possible candidates for the most suitable roles.

When moving into recruitment, I was keen to move away from the 'old boys network' and recruit based on skill, ability and drive. So four years ago I created Westminster Search.
