About us

Dartmouth Partners is an award-winning recruitment consultancy. We find and recruit the best and brightest, from the smartest graduates to the most distinguished leaders.

We empower businesses and individuals to create thriving futures,
by championing excellence and improving access to intelligence.

We’re not a typical recruitment business. We focus on identifying the
world’s greatest candidates. We’re known for embedding individuals
with an outstanding academic or professional background into firms
who understand that hiring the finest talent is vital to stay competitive
and succeed.

Alongside our parent company Kernel Global, and sister company Pure Search, we form a community of like-minded recruitment companies delivering exceptional results for our clients, candidates, and team alike.

Driven to succeed

Already, we’re the chosen advisor to over 400 firms. We’re incredibly proud of all that we’re achieving for our clients and candidates. But our ambitions don’t stop there.

We’re committed to becoming the industry’s most trusted advisor, renowned for creating and nurturing exceptional, innovative client partnerships.

Making a difference is what motivates us. We’re on a mission to build a thriving future for businesses and individuals by championing excellence and improving access to intelligence.

We believe in success for everyone: our clients, our candidates and the Dartmouth team. Our core values – excellence, partnership, knowledge, diversity and kindness – are making that a reality.



We pursue and uphold excellence in all that we do. As a firm, we’re relentlessly focused on offering the best service around. We find and recruit exceptional individuals, using expertise and approaches that far exceed what other firms offer.



We’re in recruitment for the long term, to create and evolve a company that shapes and leads the sector. The same goes for our relationships with clients and talent – they’re enduring. We nurture partnerships, continually sharing data, insight and actionable advice.



Problem solving is a complex, organic process. Our people keep their eyes and ears open at all times, discovering fresh talent, new connections, industry news, and broader trends. That’s how we act strategically, and help our clients stay future-proof and compelling.



High achievers can come from any walk of life. At Dartmouth, it’s a given that a mix of identities, experiences and points of view enriches businesses. It’s our responsibility to do what it takes to find diverse talent for our clients.



We treat all people with respect and kindness. That’s how positive relationships are forged and reputations are made. Our team enjoy each other’s company at work and at play. Most importantly, we always stay connected to our mission and our integrity.


In an increasingly connected world, what goes around comes around. We’re committed to the highest quality recruitment, not short term fixes. And we believe in being impartial and honest with clients and candidates alike. For us, success is only meaningful and sustainable when it’s shared.

We’re growing fast

Thanks to our energy, innovation, and outstanding reputation, Dartmouth is evolving at pace. We now have a Frankfurt, Paris, and US office, and Asia expansion is next. Our team is set to break 150 in 2022.


Each year, eight children in an average class will leave primary school unable to read well. These children will often struggle in school, and beyond.

When a child can navigate words, they can navigate the world. That’s why Dartmouth have partnered with Bookmark, to help children develop the reading skills they need to succeed by creating flexible volunteering at the heart of our communities.

The Bookmark app matches schools with fully safeguarded, vetted and trained reading volunteers in the local community, at the tap of a button. Each volunteer delivers one-to-one reading sessions for a six-week programme with a child who needs extra help with their reading. For the children who need us, we’re changing their story.
