Who We Are

Who We Are

At Rothley, we know that good people know good people and we act like a matchmaker to find great people for great roles - and we search across towns and across countries to do so.

Focusing on quality and long-term partnerships, Rothley has the experience and expertise to help you think differently about identifying, attracting and retaining top people. Executive search and consulting is what Rothley does – we know the business, and we take the time to know your business and its specific context, culture and challenges.   

Where we’ve come from

Rothley was founded in 2015 by Sean Brunner in partnership with MartinJenkins. Sean has more than 15 years’ experience in executive search and recruitment – in consulting, relationship management and leadership roles. As Rothley’s Director he brings a deep knowledge of the industry, including its challenges and weaknesses, and a personal drive and commitment to provide a better, more partnership-based service to clients.

Fresh thinking, insightful advice, long-term partnerships

When you engage Rothley you’ll work with experienced consultants who measure success by providing lasting, comprehensive solutions – solutions that rest on active listening and skillful execution.

Like you, we value fresh thinking and straight shooting. We’ll tell you what we think – but only after we’ve taken the time to listen and understand your organisation and each assignment.

That kind of understanding strengthens over time. We focus on partnering with like-minded clients who value quality – building long-term relationships based on trust and successful results.
