About Swann

For three decades, Swann has been trusted by the most respected names in mining, natural resources, infrastructure, and energy to find their future leaders and build the capability of their boards. 

Why choose Swann?

When you are looking for a reliable business partner to enhance your senior leadership team’s capability, it’s not a decision to be taken lightly.

The major generalist recruitment firms may be a safe choice, offering professionalism, gravitas and international networks. Niche firms that specialise in your industry can be more agile and may offer a more in-depth understanding of your business.

Swann provides the best of both worlds.

We have the capacity, capability, and reach to support regional and global projects, and the sector focus to provide highly relevant insights and expertise. 

Swann specialises in engineering and capital-intensive industries, with a particularly strong track record in mining, natural resources and infrastructure projects.

Founded in 1993 by John Murray, an ex-miner, Swann’s broad expertise encompasses leadership, executive talent, diversity and inclusion, environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. 

Globally recognised organisations choose to work with Swann because…

We concentrate on the sectors we know and understand: the natural resources, energy and infrastructure sectors, including mining, oil & gas, industrials, engineering, renewables, and technology.

This tight focus means we have an in-depth understanding of your business, your operating environment and your challenges.

We invest in thought leadership that benefits the wider industry and our clients in particular.

Our advice and the way we work is continuously scrutinised against, and informed by our ongoing research programme.

What we do

For three decades, Swann has worked with the most recognised names in mining, oil & gas and associated services, to support and advise existing leadership teams, and find the leaders of tomorrow.

Our track record of placing candidates in the most senior roles in energy, natural resources, renewables, technology and infrastructure is exceptional.
