Shirley Soskin is the Managing Partner and Founder of Silverhawk Partners.

Her early career was spent creating the successful communications consultancy Clarion Communications, which specialises in brand reputation management for leading organisations. Clarion was acquired by the global communications network, WPP in 2001. Following the sale of Clarion Shirley became interested in developing a portfolio career that included consulting and working flexibly. Having successfully established herself as an independent consultant she was determined to build an organisation to provide clients with access to flexible talent.

Shirley manages Silverhawk in partnership with a network of key individuals, experts in their fields in strategic consulting, resourcing, leadership and internal communications. For each assignment a bespoke team is created giving clients access to the best talent for the project. Silverhawk operates through a wide network of senior professionals across industry sectors and professional functions. The back office function is also vital to the smooth running of the business and Shirley employs a team of flexible workers to provide cost effective and highly efficient support.

Shirley has a portfolio of non exec advisory and philanthropy roles. She was recently appointed as Chair of City Year UK, a leading youth and education charity dedicated to providing volunteers aged 18-24 as role models in schools to provide inspiration to vulnerable children.
