Fish & Nankivell Ogilvie Watson is a pre-eminent Australian owned executive recruitment firm providing executive search and advertised recruitment services through two brands – Fish & Nankivell and Ogilvie Watson.

The firm is 100% owned by the Partners. This gives us a vested interest in building a sustainable business through client satisfaction. All initial contact with potential candidates and sources is conducted by a Partner, unlike most other recruitment firms where this critically important work is delegated to junior employees. From our base at 1 Collins Street, Melbourne, we carry out assignments across Australia.

Fish & Nankivell is the oldest locally-owned executive search firm in Australia, having been founded in 1984.

Ogilvie Watson was established in 1995 and continues to provide a high quality vehicle for conducting mid-level to senior advertised executive recruitment.

We are one of the founding members of Penrhyn International (www.penrhyn.com), a partnership of independently owned search firms located in important centres around the world. This network provides us with international expertise and global reach.

Established in 1979, Penrhyn International is one of the largest global partnerships of independent retained executive search firms.
