Our values are core to BETA Search

Our Values

Relationship Driven

We are deeply committed to building long term relationships with clients and candidates. We have built trusted relationships in the business over 20 years.


We conduct ourselves with integrity in everything we do.


We deliver on our commitments to all stakeholders.


We aspire to be the best at what we do everyday on every search.


We strive to promote the best possible talent for our clients. We believe a team comprised of diverse backgrounds and inclusive behaviours will outperform.


We are thinking ahead bringing creative new ideas challenging accepted wisdom.

Diversity Commitment

BETA Search is committed to the practices of diversity and equality within our own business and clients.  We strive to present our clients with the most talented individuals, regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender or disability status. We implement initiatives around diversity and inclusion in collaboration with clients on every search.


We assess all prospective candidates on the basis of their experience, motivation, qualifications and a likely ability to succeed in the specified role.  We strive to be aware of and address immediately any conscious or unconscious bias, both within our own and in our clients’ candidate assessment techniques.

Environmental, Social and Governance Commitment

We have ambitions for a sustainable, low carbon future.  We believe that environmental sustainability and economic prosperity can go hand-in-hand as we address the climate crisis.

ESG and ‘impact investing’ are central to corporate behaviour. We work closely with clients on their ESG agenda. We hire Heads of ESG and Sustainability as well as identifying broader talent with an ESG mindset. We also hire into relevant sector specialisms including Social Housing.

Efforts to decrease our own environmental impact at BETA Search include becoming paperless, banning single-use plastics and reduction of waste. 

”There is not only an urgent need to act, but also a powerful business and investing case to do so.”
