Executive Talent.

Search. Placement. Mentoring.

How often have we heard it said, “It’s a People Business”?


It may sound like a well worn cliché, but in reality, few things matter more in the onboard hospitality sector than securing the right people to grow and develop your business.


More often than not however, it can be a time consuming and costly process. But now, there’s a place….


  • where both recruiters and talented people can go to quickly find ideal candidates and ideal jobs

  • where highly experienced industry specialists will ensure that only genuine contenders are short listed, so no-one’s valuable time is wasted

  • that has the most extensive global network in the industry for both talent and organisations


That place is right here!


Heading up the business is Mike Pooley and Lance Hayward from The Hayward Partnership in collaboration with Roy Wilson, one of the founder members of Sterling Bridge who for over 20 years have been connecting job seekers and new opportunities across rail, airlines and airports,  and with the full support of OnBoard Hospitality, the leading digital and print magazine in the industry.  All of whom share a real passion and commitment for developing and nurturing talent in the sector.
