Context

Industry leaders in mining, energy and infrastructure are dealing with volatile demand and escalating costs. The job is made more complex by environmental regulations, tax incentives, liberalisation processes and usage targets, amid increasing competition from both existing and new market players.

As the demand and supply of talent shifts across the globe, our clients seek senior executives who can support their business objectives in these challenging market conditions. Leaders who are adaptable and can cope with the accelerating pace of change. Leaders who are agile enough to take advantage of opportunities while maintaining a long-term strategic focus.
