- What We Do -
DEVELOPING AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS
We are a specialist firm focusing exclusively on mid-to-senior-level appointments in Corporate Communications, PR and Public Affairs.
We work hard to earn the trust of both our clients and candidates – identifying and assessing talent across all geographies and in all industry sectors.
Knowing our profession as well as we do enables us to add real value to both client and candidate – from finding the right talent for the right position, to ensuring a successful transition, to following up with the aftercare you need.
When conducting executive recruitment, we can also provide full market mapping, as well as salary and title benchmarking.
We provide temporary contractors (to cover for maternity absence and extended sick leave, or simply as extra hands for a key project) across a wide range of communications disciplines. These contracts usually last from three to 12 months, delivering experienced practitioners who have been specifically sourced for their adaptable skillsets and ability to hit the ground running.
Senior Interim Managers are hand-picked by us to bring a particular specialty to your team (e.g., for integration projects or IT-system rollouts) or to manage executive-level projects (e.g., organizational change or management transitions). Our Interims can be in place within a matter of days: We know how essential that is when you have sudden time constraints.
We source only the highest calibre professionals, priding ourselves on our speed and efficiency. That means each person has been rigorously vetted and briefed in advance, to ensure they deliver value to you from Day One.
We offer communications training tailored to your needs, enabling you to upskill your team and enhance overall performance levels in pursuit of business goals.
Training can be delivered in-house or virtually (for remote teams) on a variety of topics including: internal communications; better business writing; change communications; communications planning; and social media strategy.

- Shaping our Industry -
CONTRIBUTING TO THE INDUSTRY VIA RESEARCH
In today's business climate, success means being able to balance a broad global perspective with a deep local knowledge. Nowhere is that more true than in Asia, where many of us have to work across a dozen fast-changing markets at once.
Our Partners have deep roots in their individual communities, regularly leading round-table discussions to develop the profession at the local level. But we also conduct extensive, industry-leading research across the whole of Asia, helping communications functions stay abreast of the latest trends and benchmarks in the region.
In November 2020, Andrews Partnership hosted a panel discussion with a group of more than 50 senior IR leaders from around the Asia Pacific region.
Together they shared shared their learnings from this volatile year, and offered some insights into the strategy and tactics they would be deploying in the coming 12 months
Our recent Sustainability in Asia event offered a unique perspective and progressive ideas for the future of ESG after COVID-19.
Our speakers expressed confidence that ESG will remain at the forefront of business strategy and planning, even throughout the uncertainties of this global crisis.
At Andrews Partnership, our mission is to enhance the strength and stature of the whole communications industry. This means not only matching the perfect communications executive to the right top-tier organisation. It often means harvesting unorthodox outside talents; people with the sort of complementary skills that can enrich the whole profession as it grows and develops.
Amid the struggles of the coronavirus pandemic, and the impact it has had on hiring, Andrews Partnership has nevertheless seen increasing executive search demand in the communications profession over recent months.
Covering lessons learned and their most powerful uses of communications through the crisis.
How does your organisations communications efforts benchmark against them?
In the third of our virtual roundtables on communications strategy through the coronavirus outbreak, Andrews Partnership last week convened communications practitioners from 30 different organisations to talk about their current crisis comms strategies.
In the second of our action-response roundtables on the coronavirus outbreak, Andrews Partnership last week convened communications professionals from 24 different Asia Pacific organisations, to understand how the region’s practitioners are responding to the crisis.
On 31 January 2020, the World Health Organisation classified the coronavirus outbreak as a "global health emergency". That morning, Andrews Partnership assembled a group of communications professionals from 19 different organisations in Asia Pacific to understand how practitioners in the region have been responding to this fast-developing crisis.

Key trends facing the Industry today, and possible career developments including moves into CEO/CFO positions.

Andrews Partnership to build on the success of its existing European affiliation with a new strategic alliance with US based PLBsearch to form a new global network. Alongside existing European affiliate, Broome Yasar, the three independent search firms will form a unified global network of executive recruiters dedicated exclusively to international corporate affairs and investor relations executive search.
Asia Pacific still lags Europe and the US when it comes to seeing sustainability as a core business agenda, with the exception of Australia and Japan. But as the climate crisis and the fight against poverty across Asia intensify, sustainability topics are becoming more pertinent to business leaders in the region.
Andrews Partnership sat down with Dr. Laura McHale to discuss life beyond corporate communications. Laura spent more than 15 years in internal communications roles before retraining as a psychologist and setting up an advisory firm to help organisations understand their employees better and how that can impact the business.
