Careers at Heidrick & Struggles

An equal passion for people and problem-solving

Organizational success starts with understanding people: What motivates them? What unlocks their potential? What obstacles stand in their way? We challenge ourselves constantly to produce more empathetic, evidence-based answers, which we put to the test with our own culture.

We hire individuals who demonstrate curiosity, resilience, and creativity in problem-solving. Our most successful hires combine those qualities with a genuine passion for people. They thrive in our welcoming, inclusive, and diverse culture. And no matter which career path they take, they enjoy the right balance of freedom, responsibility, and support as they chart their course.
