"I loved working with Dartmouth Partners. They not only acted as an expert sounding board for me to evolve our thinking on exactly what our team needs, but went above and beyond to find exceptional talent within IR that precisely met these needs holistically, taking into account cultural fit, attitude, experience and technical capabilities. Dartmouth Partners were a true and trusted partner to me in our search for top talent, and I couldn’t recommend working with them more to build out your IR team."

VP, Investor Relations

Specialist Private Equity Firm

"Dartmouth Partners placed me into my current role at a Global Investment Manager. Simply put, they were excellent throughout the process. Jo and I didn't know each other before this search, but she has become someone I trust and someone who I want to work with again in my new role as we look to expand the team in the future. There are many things Jo did brilliantly throughout our time working together. For example, she was always in touch. A week didn't go by without hearing from her either to update me, brief me appropriately or to give me full and fair feedback from a previous interview."

Head of EMEA Client Solutions

Infrastructure Investment Manager

“Emma helped me secure my dream role in a highly competitive field against stiff competition. She is not only a fantastic recruiter but a consummate professional. She was friendly, honest and reassuring throughout the hiring process, making sure I was well prepared and keeping in touch at each stage of the process. I was particularly impressed with how Emma looked around corners and knew exactly which questions to ask when in final stages and negotiating my offer. Once I'd accepted my offer she even took me out for a celebratory drink!”

IR Associate

“What makes the difference with Dartmouth is that they really take the time. The time to share their deep understanding of the role and the expectations so you could prepare yourself properly; the time to provide you with clear visibility on next steps, and the time to share detailed feedback after each interview. They offer unique support throughout the entire process that makes you feel more than just another candidate.”
