Executive Search

See Six Degrees Executive Search


Expectations for leaders have radically changed, highlighting a critical gap in Australian leadership capability. As experts recruiting Executive-level and C-suite talent, we understand the pressure organisations face when sourcing executive leaders.

Determined to break the rules of traditional search firms, our focus is on delivering a personalised, relationship-based approach to executive search.

Our Executive Search practice recruits Board, Director, C-suite, and General Management level appointments including:  

  • Chairs, Non-Executive Directors and Directors
  • CEOs, Managing Directors, General Managers, and Country Managers
  • C-suite and divisional directors - COO, CFO, CTO/CIO, CMO, CPO, CRO, Sales Directors

Since 2004, the Six Degrees Executive Search practice has achieved national reach across Australia and (through our PRAXI Alliance partnership) into international executive talent markets.

We are valued by clients for our candidate-led, agile approach that is underpinned by quality processes and frameworks including our proprietary 6Dx assessment methodology.  


Our dedicated executive search team leverage their expert research capabilities and use rigorous search methodologies that are customised to the needs of our clients to deliver quality results. 

Our experienced Executive Search team includes Six Degrees Executive Directors and a support of a team of researchers. We draw from deep and engaged talent pools nurtured through our specialist recruitment business, where we sit at the epicentre of talent ecosystems.

Through the established Six Degrees Executive networks, our Executive Search practice can access the best C-suite and executive leadership talent in Australia and international executive talent through our membership in the Praxi Alliance search network. Our clients include a diverse variety of public and private enterprise, private equity-backed companies and family-owned businesses. 


We provide a range of complementary recruitment and talent services: 




Organisations can only evolve if they have strong leaders. In an era of continuous transformation, finding the right talent for Board and C-Suite roles is more important than ever. Six Degrees Executive meets this challenge by employing an advanced research methodology combined with a rigorous assessment process to find executive talent that exceeds expectations.

Working closely with our clients to define talent requirements, our Executive Search practice uses an in-depth briefing process that provides quality results in a cost- and time-effective manner.

Our executive recruitment services are underpinned by our proprietary 6Dx methodology, designed by organisational psychologists to reduce the margin for risk and ensure an objective approach to deliver consistent, high-quality outcomes. 6Dx provides our clients with a customised capability assessment to evaluate, compare and benchmark executive-level candidates’ skills and experience. Learn more about Executive Assessment and the 6Dx methodology. 


As a leading executive search agency and specialist recruiter, Six Degrees Executive holds a privileged role in influencing positive change across industries, which is why we are working to help our clients unlock the benefits of diverse teams and an inclusive culture.

Diversity and Inclusion must be driven from the top – and represented at the top – if organisations want to reap the full benefits of diverse teams and an inclusive culture.

Our Executive Search practice is experienced at finding the right executive talent to drive and embed organisational change, working closely with organisations to enable diverse and inclusive teams and culture.


Our clients benefit from extensive leadership knowledge – our in-depth industry insight and knowledge of the changing skills, challenges, and pressures on executive leaders have been acquired through our years of successful experience specialising across industry sectors with small, medium and large companies and ASX listed organisations.
