Public 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 across the public sector.

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.

About Westminster Search

Westminster Search recruit across a range of disciplines in the political, government and campaign space including: Public Affairs, Public Policy, Communications, Public Relations, Media Relations, Government Affairs, Campaigns, Government Relations, Political Risk and Policy.

If recruitment for new roles is proving a challenging drain on resources and becoming a distraction from your day job, that's where we can help. Our thorough database of candidates is always on hand to provide candidates who are a perfect match for your requirements - and our previous experience of the industry means that we can assess them to ensure they are completely suitable for the role that's available.

We like to pride ourselves on having both the human touch when it comes to recruitment and also the expertise to place the right candidate in the right organisation, so that both can flourish. We often feel that the best people to tell our story are those who we've worked with previously to make the recruitment process as smooth as possible - so why not check out their testimonials on our website?
