About Us

Bringing years of expertise to the table, we provide bespoke talent solutions to meet the shortage of mid-to-senior-level executives.

We are Gibson Watts – a leadership recruitment and executive search company that is shaping a sustainable future for businesses and the planet.

We are proud to be supporting leading and emerging organisations with a specific focus on renewable energy generation, hydrogen, clean transportation, technology & manufacturing, and agricultural technology.

The Gibson Watts team is a community that continuously supports and learns from each other, with the goal of making a positive difference in the world.

To ensure that gender equality and inclusion are embedded into everything we do, we believe it is of the utmost importance to demonstrate that there are no glass ceilings here at Gibson Watts.

Our culture of equality starts at the very top. For an industry where male CEOs are far more prevalent, we are honoured to be a business that is actively involved in having female senior leadership as part of the board, represented by our CEO, Anne O’Donnell.

We have created an equitable, high-performing workplace that gives people from all walks of life the support they need to thrive and grow.  And by building an inclusive environment, it means that our employees can put their whole selves into helping our clients achieve success.

At Gibson Watts, we believe exceptional companies are built with exceptional people. Allow us to introduce our dedicated, hardworking, and collaborative team of experts, whose combined experience spans over 135 years.
