Cornell Partnership was first established in London in 2005 – today, we’re a leading search firm in the City with an exceptional track record.
We work with big corporates, start-ups and scale-ups, management and strategy consultancies and financial institutions (primarily hedge funds and private equity firms) to find bright, adaptable individuals from impressive academic and professional backgrounds.
Clients vary in size and scale, from established brands to more nascent entrepreneurial ventures. We place graduates and experienced professionals with up to 15 years of experience into commercial areas where they can make a significant impact, from strategy and operations to corporate development and strategic marketing.
With a focus on the corporate, consultancy, venture capital and private equity spaces, Cornell Partnership specialises in dealing with businesses where there is a high academic benchmark to entry.
You will find that we don’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our network. We are lucky enough to work with a diverse and exciting range of businesses which means that we deal with a spectrum of roles.
Having met and worked with other recruiters in the industry, I truly believe that Cornell’s level of professionalism, enthusiasm and their tailored approach is second to none.
"I first had the pleasure to work with Cornell in 2011, when they helped me secure an offer with a leading boutique investment bank during the financial crisis. More recently, Cornell played a key part in helping me make a successful career move into corporate development, and I cannot thank Lydia and Jim enough for their support and advice throughout the process. From our very first conversation to interview preparation and career advice, they have been absolutely fantastic to work with."
“Cornell proved to be the perfect solution to a challenging and unusual recruitment requirement in our investment business. They quickly grasped what we were looking for in terms of the role and budget expectations and worked with us to define how that translated from a candidate perspective. There was no time wasting as they filtered the applicants and provided a well-tailored shortlist which meant that we were able to fill the position quickly and with a great result.”
