Regulation and professional standards underpin our economy, our environment and our communities. As the world experiences unprecedented change, the need for effective and proportionate regulation, enabling our professions and industries to operate to the highest standards and that consumers, patients and the public are protected critical to shape a better society.

GatenbySanderson works with a range of regulator, professional membership and ombudsman organisations across the UK, supporting senior board and executive appointments. Our work includes advising on single, business critical appointments, providing support to organisations undergoing transformational change, with the appointment of entire teams and boards and helping to shape the governance and executive structure of new regulators. Our unique multiple Panel/Committee and Adviser service is hugely effective in bringing diversity and outstanding appointments to the professional and systems regulator communities.

We bring a deep understanding of the challenges faced by organisations operating in modern and dynamic regulatory environments. We support candidates as they move between sectors and we are recognised for our ability to attract diverse talent to some of the most specialist and heavily scrutinised roles in the UK.
