Our Approach

Banister International was founded in 1993 to change the status quo of Executive Search. To deliver at a level above and beyond what was available in the market at that time. To create a new, better standard that truly meets the needs of the world’s greatest businesses.

Our Values

Our core values drive us to continue delivering excellence for our clients, year after year, capitalising on over 30 years’ of knowledge and experience:


We know our clients inside and out. We anticipate their needs and provide solutions before they even have to ask.


We deliver what our clients need, when they need it - always to an impeccable standard. We are not afraid to challenge their ideas to support them in achieving their goals.


The market is changing everyday, so we will always change and adapt to stay ahead of the curve and deliver for our clients, quickly.

Diversity & Inclusion

We value Diversity & Inclusion

At Banister International, we are passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. Our team is made up of people from all over the world, putting us in a unique position to help employers tackle their diversity and workforce-related challenges.

Our team leads by example

Our own culture reflects the way we operate as a business and helps us influence conventions within today’s talent marketplace. As part of our induction program, consultants and researchers go through diversity and inclusion training, including an unconscious bias seminar.

Diversity drives our success

According to recent research, companies that are diverse in age, gender identity, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, and perspective are better able to attract top talent. They are also able to improve customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making, leading to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns.

Acutely aware of the diversity and workforce-related challenges facing employers today, we are in a unique position to promote these values across the entire recruitment process.
