Business Meeting
We are McLaren Global Search & Selection (MGSS), a boutique human capital advisory firm operating across multiple geographies. MGSS Associates partner with our clients to offer truly global search capabilities.

Professional Services | Banking & Finance | NGOs & Social Enterprise

​MGSS Associates is a boutique search & selection consultancy with a global remit.


From our London headquarters, MGSS delivers executive search mandates and management recruitment projects for organisations around the world operating within the broad areas of professional services, banking & finance, and NGOs & social enterprise.


We act as true partners to our clients, providing expert human capital advisory covering all areas of talent management, including retention and reward as well as recruitment and selection.

Our watchword is exclusivity - either working on a retained basis with clients to execute search projects for business critical roles; or working on an exclusive basis with candidates, proactively representing the finest talent in the market to an agreed list of target firms in their chosen geography - thereby both helping faciliate the candidate's best possible next career move and ensure client firms' acquisition of critical new senior staff.

We only work with the very best candidates in each of the sectors in which we operate - those who can genuinely add measurable value to our client firms. If you believe you have what it takes to be of significant value in a business critical role, please do get in touch today.

Informative Interview


MGSS Associates are specialists in the search for and successful recruitment of the highest calibre individuals to business-critical roles with our client firms, ones which literally have the potential to make or break their corporate strategy.

We operate across all geographies within three broad domains:

Professional Services, including Management Consulting & Corporate Strategy Advisory, Executive Search & Recruitment Consultancy, Project Delivery & Outsourcing, Information Services & IT Consultancy, Accounting & Financial Advisory, and Law & Legal Services​​.

Banking & Finance, including Capital Markets & Investment Banking, Asset Management, Wealth Management & Private Banking, Private Equity, Digital Finance & FinTech, Credit Ratings, and Cards & Payments.

NGOs & Social Enterprise, including UK and international charities, social activism and purpose-led organisations, membership associations, and third sector public service providers.

Across these sectors, all the positions with which MGSS Associates are engaged to assist have one thing in common - they are all business-critical.


Whether it be in a senior leadership position responsible for steering the ship, a crucial revenue generating role whose level of success determines a wider corporate strategy, or an essential project delivery role with the reputation of the client firm hanging on its successful execution; all the roles with which we assist make a measurable difference to the success (or, if not done correctly, failure) of our clients' corporate strategy.

MGSS Associates are thus experts at locating and securing the outstanding individuals necessary for the success of our clients.

Business Meeting


Identifying, Approaching and Representing the Finest Talent in the Global Market to the Greatest Opportunities Available.

We execute searches for and represent candidates to executive and management positions in the UK & Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific regions.

Currently we have client relationships with firms in the UK (where we are headquartered), US, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Singapore, South Korea, and Australia. The list continues to grow as we expand our global search operations into new territories.



Advising on How Best to Identify, Approach, Secure, Reward and Retain the Highest Calibre Talent that Adds Measurable Value to Your Organisation.

We work in true partnership with our clients and our unique approach is not only what differentiates us but also what makes us successful.

We recognise that individuals can quite literally add value to (or, when the talent management decisions go wrong, subtract value from) their employers' balance sheets.

The key is therefore not just to recognise talent, but to identify and implement a strategy whereby the highest calibre talent is successfully recruited and retained so as to maximise the capital gain available from human resources.
