About Tim Mitchell

Tim Mitchell is a coach, HR and executive search consultant working with clients in the creative & broadcast media industries.

Helping clients find, develop and support their most important asset – their people.

Tim Mitchell is a talent/executive search strategist, CIPD qualified HR generalist and trained coach. For over 15 years he has helped creative businesses find, develop and support their most important asset: their people.


The integrated creative advertising, design and broadcast industries are the cornerstones of his 20+ career. He has worked in London and New York, is a proud mentor for the Creative Mentor Network, a charity whose mission it is to make the creative industries more inclusive, and a volunteer listener for the Samaritans.


He spent his early career working in account management in agency & client-side creative businesses, and he brings this deep insight & experience to his clients. He has a reputation for working collaboratively, with empathy, care & integrity.


In his work Tim challenges recruitment and HR conventions and aims to deliver business success to his clients by helping them align their people & business strategies. He aims to help those he coaches experience more fulfilled careers and lives.


A recent study by Leadership IQ found that 46% of newly-hired senior employees fail within 18 months. To counter the obvious financial and emotional costs this brings, Tim has developed an end-to-end combined, strategic executive search and on-boarding/coaching process which identifies, hires & then works with the candidate and the client through probation & on-boarding in one aligned, invested process, helping create success over the long term.


As a coach, he brings a holistic ‘whole life’ approach that helps individuals & teams embrace their potential, so they see their unique abilities & talents differently, uncover previously unseen opportunities, and make changes to their [working or otherwise] lives that they have been unable to do.


Tim believes in relationships and an inclusive, nurturing company culture (culture = people); in aligning business purpose and values; and in delivering a tailored approach to developing, supporting and finding his clients’ talent.
