Industry & Manufacturing
The Industry & Manufacturing Practice at Carmichael Fisher has grown exponentially both in terms of geographical coverage and sub-sector experience and is now recognized by some of the world's largest multinational organisations as their key partner in both local and multi-country searches across all key disciplines.
We operate with the energy, hunger and flexibility of a boutique firm and the infrastructure of a multinational organisation, providing superior and personalised retained Executive Search services. The team is multi-cultural and multi-lingual enabling us to navigate the intellectual and cultural challenges that exist in both traditional and mature markets, as well as the new and developing markets globally.
Within the team, we employ sector experts across Manufacturing, Engineering & Industrial Technologies, Electronics, Aerospace & Defence, Print & Packaging, Buildings & Environmental, Food & Beverage and Chemicals. The team brings together significant current and previous search experience, broad market knowledge and networks, and cultural empathy to all searches.
Our guiding principles are to act with honesty and integrity and to operate with a continuous improvement mind-set and we measure ourselves on market leading 'time to fill' and 'cost of hire' ratios.

What our clients think
The research at Carmichael Fisher is of a very high quality. The team not only identified the right kind of target companies but were also very responsive to our suggestions. The language challenges of our pan-European search presented no problems for them, and the fact that they had actually met with the candidates they put forward – rather than just had a telephone conversation – really paid off.
