Change is constant within the defence sector. There is an increasing need for growth in new areas of technology in response to complex threats to national security and geographical shifts in faster growing regions such as Asia, the Middle East, and India.
In response, businesses are prioritising leaders who possess strong international experience; that can innovate, collaborate, and develop differentiated products and services; and that lead proactively in times of uncertainty. The industry is increasingly developing internal successors to fill pivotal, mission critical roles, while identifying and investing in the next generation of leaders.
Cripps Sears’ defence sector specialises in helping to attract, develop and retain best-in-class leaders. As budgets shrink, global instability rises, competition increases, regulations change, markets shift and technologies evolve, leadership pipelines need to be agile and capable of delivering high-performance leaders. We offer a full range of talent solutions designed to effectively address defence talent needs. This includes strategic search services, competency-based assessments, interactive high-potential leadership development programmes, one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design and succession planning.
