About us

Few factors can have such a direct impact on the effective stewardship of an organisation’s corporate reputation – and therefore its continued success – than the quality of its corporate affairs and communications leadership.

We understand the vital role that corporate affairs directors and their teams play in today’s interconnected, digitally empowered world where reputation can change in an instant. Managing corporate reputation is now far more complex than it used to be and organisations need multi-disciplined, highly-skilled communications professionals to help them engage with an ever increasing range of stakeholders, from the media, politicians, employees and customers, to NGOs, suppliers and regulators. Finding the right person for senior communications positions takes experience, expertise, patience, emotional intelligence, tenacity and lots of hard work.

Our executive search service offers all of the above and is underpinned by a deep insight and understanding of the international communications world. Founder Dee Cayhill – who leads on all executive searches – spent almost 20 years as a senior communications practitioner herself and so brings a unique, insiders perspective to communications’ head hunting. That means being able to identify potential candidates with the best skills and experience as well as the ideal personality. And because we work across all industries and sectors, Cayhill Partners can find and secure exceptional communications leaders who are as distinctive as the companies they serve.

We worked with Dee to find a corporate affairs director. She has a deep knowledge of the communications and investor relations world and brought real expertise to the project. Her ability to listen and understand exactly what our business needed meant that she was able to produce an insightful, diverse and first-rate short list. She has a flexible and professional approach and was on top of the brief from start to finish. A senior search very well done.
