Global Executive Recruitment in
Corporate Affairs and Investor Relations

The Partnership

Broome Yasar Partnership

Partnership isn't just the name on our door

It's our promise to work with you as a dedicated and long-term partner.

We focus exclusively on senior executive recruitment in corporate affairs and investor relations. We partner with corporate clients and consultancies looking to attract exceptional leadership talent, or senior candidates looking for unrivalled and objective advice, career nurturing and ultimately their next role.

Our Partners include the most respected and established executive recruiters in the communications industry with specialist expertise across the following disciplines:

Corporate Communications

Investor Relations

Internal Communications

Public Relations

Public Affairs

Marketing Communications


What We Do



We are specialists – we focus exclusively on senior appointments in corporate affairs and investor relations.

We work hard to earn the trust of both our clients and candidates. We identify and assess talent across geographies and from a cross section of different industries.

Knowing our industry as well as we do enables us to consistently uncover the right fit, ensure a successful transition and ultimately an appointment that adds value to both client and candidate.

In addition to executive recruitment, we provide full market mapping, salary and title benchmarking.


We provide proven Interim Managers across a wide range of communications disciplines. Our Interim Managers can be in place within days, an often essential requirement when time constraints are paramount.

We are particularly adept at providing solutions which involve a period of internal organisational change or transition. Our internal communications and employee engagement interim network is market leading.

We source only the highest calibre Interim Management professionals with speed and efficiency. This ensures that each Interim Manager has been rigorously vetted to ensure they bring lasting value from day one.


Effective professional development and leadership coaching has an impact on an individual's performance which, inevitably, will produce substantial benefits to their organisations.

Our Executive Coaches have a wide variety of skills, behavioural techniques and methodologies to enable our clients to improve their performance and effectiveness. Their approach draws on the latest developments in the field of neuroscience.

We work closely with our partner agency, Moss Perform, which has extensive experience in coaching executives to fulfil their objectives, personal goals and think strategically about their careers.


Our Clients


We reflect today's global workforce, offering international research capabilities to attract the best communications talent worldwide. The experience of our Partners has resulted in the successful appointment of more than 300 senior corporate communications and investor relations leadership roles across Europe, Asia Pacific and North America.
