What we do
O’Neill Consulting is a search firm and talent consultancy. Our experts work with driven leaders wanting to strengthen their organizations. We tackle hiring challenges at the upper and middle management levels for companies that are growing, under pressure, or in distress.
Our aim is to add tremendous value to our clients’ businesses. Our experts support innovative startups to scaling mid-market companies to Fortune 500 organizations with high-impact, bespoke services.
We recruit the best and brightest individuals for upper and middle management roles. This involves a robust kickoff and score-carding process that aligns the panel to what good looks like and, from there, identifies people that are the right fit. We don't just place anyone, for us, it’s personal.Learn more
Clarify if you have the right person or team in place for your strategy with our scientifically validated assessment tools. Our insights evaluate talent holistically — their experience, traits, management competence, and mental agility — to de-risk selection, promotion, and development decisions.
We help leaders scale organizations by hiring large numbers of top-tier talent. We get that hiring at scale is all about hiring at speed too. We can rapidly recruit for one or several roles, often advising companies as they set out to stand up an entire salesforce, expand into a new market, or navigate M&A deals.Learn more
