Government, Health & Education

The Government, Health & Education Practice at Carmichael Fisher has extensive experience of identifying and attracting talent across the globe. Indeed our ability to add cross-border search has differentiated us from other more locally focussed firms for many years.

Government agencies are increasingly looking to source executive talent with relevant commercial experience. With extensive networks within both the public and private sectors, we are able to respond rapidly to access talented candidates with experience in both sectors. Our rigorous assessment methodologies and our understanding of the workings and processes of government ensure a seamless and responsive service.

Carmichael Fisher has an excellent reputation in the university sector that extends across both academic and non-academic appointments.
