Changing the why we work

Communities demand engaging leadership and high levels of ethics and governance.

Our Public Sector clients value candidates that have proven ethical and governance standards matched by strong people and communication skills. Effective public sector organisations need inclusive and agile executive leadership.

Increasing scrutiny, and a rise in public expectations for transparency and accountability, means leaders must nurture public service ethos while increasingly adopting corporate disciplines of value for money, efficiency and client centrality.

“Throughout our engagement, I have been impressed with your professionalism. More-so, your open approach and genuine interest made it very easy to understand the role/opportunity and how I and my experiences might fit/contribute. What I found particularly impressive, was your willingness to provide instant and honest feedback. This had a significant influence on my motivation for the position.

In all honesty, I have interacted with a lot of recruiters, both professionally and personally. I can unequivocally say that my interaction with you has been nothing but first class and reflects a standard that I feel your industry should be aspiring to.”

UNSUCCESSFUL CANDIDATEFEDERAL GOVERNMENT RECRUITMENT PROCESS

“David Baber at Fisher Leadership led the process for recruiting our new CEO at South Gippsland Shire. David was able to introduce into the process an excellent range of high-quality people looking for a CEO role in Local Government.

He has a particularly strong grasp of what it takes to be a successful Local Government CEO and has that invaluable ability to match personal traits and characteristics of applicants with the profile of the kind of person you might be looking for. David paid great attention to all the important details in our recruitment process, followed up on our many questions and requests and was thorough and professional from start to finish. He gave wise advice and is an excellent facilitator of group discussion that needs to find consensus. I can highly recommend David Baber and the Fisher Leadership team to a Council seeking the services of  high-quality recruitment professionals.”

“Fisher Leadership gave considered and sympathetic advice and a diversity of applicants that were not just the usual suspects and sources. The team showed a willingness to look harder – and had a good take on our cultural needs with what applicants had to offer. David really cares about a good outcome.
