Providing leadership services, that make a difference

The Chilworth Partnership brings you invaluable recruitment experience and incomparable industry access. The partnership was born from a desire to improve the reputation of recruitment, and to give exceptional candidates and outstanding clients a more personal, premium service.

It’s always been about forming real, solid relationships: mentoring candidates and clients so that careers excel, and businesses build momentum. Recognising key talent and orchestrating flawless fits within the financial arena sets us apart from the rest.

Meet our founders: Richard Carter and Rod Hutchings are search experts, professional advisors, and personal mentors. They first worked together in 1990, creating an award-winning office and region for an NYSE-quoted international financial recruitment group. They developed their business into the market-leading financial recruiter in the central southern region.

The pair reunited in September 2010 to form the esteemed Chilworth Partnership. Today, the next generation at Chilworth are following in Richard and Rod’s exceptional footsteps and with Directors Chris Judd, Matt Whitton, David Hodges and recently recruited Karen Rich at the helm we’re continuing to raise the bar for financial recruitment.
