Emily is a Senior Researcher in Society’s Higher Education Practice. She initially joined the firm as a Researcher in our Auckland office before relocating back to London in August 2023.

Prior to moving to New Zealand, Emily spent several years as a Researcher for a boutique board-level search firm specialising in senior executive and non-executive appointments in London.
