Chris Kidd - Founder & Owner

Our goal at CK Search Global is to build robust and meaningful relationships with both our clients and our candidates. We start from the ground up, building an in-depth understanding of our clients’ business. Next we search for the ideal candidates, individuals who have the relevant professional and personal skills. By facilitating this partnership, we strive for the most successful combination – a long-standing placement with satisfied clients and successful candidates.

We are a niche Search Firm, specialising in six practice areas only, Audit and Risk Advisory, Audit Quality and Technical Standards, Forensic Services,  Restructuring  Advisory, Transaction Advisory and Valuations. Our six areas of practise and expertise have been fine-tuned over the last seven years and our success is largely due to the professional relationships we have nurtured.

We believe that it is better to serve a select few expertly rather than trying to be all things to all people. As a niche firm we are better able to maintain a broader network of senior specialists with experience that is specific to our clients’ needs. As our clients are a select few we are not hampered by extensive client exclusions; we can perform as a firm with unlimited resources, working smarter to deliver better results.

Diversity and inclusion are at the very core of who we are and what we do. We work closely with our clients to ensure that we are providing the widest possible cultural diversity within any shortlist. We make efforts to look not only in the most obvious areas, but brainstorm strategies to identify candidates with different backgrounds and life experiences to ensure we are providing the most diverse and suitable candidates possible.

We work with, and represent, industry experts at Managerial, Director, Partner and Managing Director levels across the globe. Whether you are searching for a specialist or are looking to move roles yourself we will be able to advise you, and will strive to facilitate this.

Christopher Kidd founded CK Search Global in 2014 and has over 30 years professional services recruitment and search experience having successfully introduced specialists across our practice areas into professional services firms throughout his career, primarily focusing on senior level recruitment. Many of his introductions now lead service lines for advisory firms around the world and come to him for advice on hiring strategies and with search mandates.

Prior to founding CK Search Global Chris headed the Practice Recruitment team at a leading London based Financial Recruitment Consultancy and was a founding Partner of a specialist Professional Services Recruiter. He is also the originator of Big 4 Careers and has an in depth understanding of the industry and a comprehensive global network of contacts.

Chris believes passionately in a honest and open approach to recruitment in order to pave the way for strong working relationships and it is through these relationships, together with hard work, determination and a deep knowledge of these markets that successful, long-term placements have been made.
