Global Specialist Executive Search & Career Development

Chemical Search International Career Opportunities

Chemical Search International works closely with a small number of clients at a time. Almost all our assignments are both exclusive to us and retained, which means you can be assured of a rigorous, high-quality approach and complete confidentiality. We publicise some of our active roles, but many are sensitive so are not advertised and cannot be found elsewhere.

Below is a small sample of past assignments. To discuss our current roles, our capabilities, or opportunities we may have 'in the pipeline' please contact us. To register your details and be assured of hearing about relevant roles first, please complete the short form. Your details will be held in complete confidence, per our privacy policy.
