We were recommended to the CFO and Head of People by the outgoing Director of Finance to execute a campaign to recruit a Group Financial Controller.

“This was a great campaign for us to lead. I really enjoyed working with Catherine and Kitty and all of the candidates in the process. There was a lot of time invested in the planning and the assessment on our part and we have reached a really positive outcome for all parties”

Nik’s brief on the opportunity was good and accurate without any surprises, helping me to understand how the role might fit as the next step in my career.  Nik had also invested sufficient time to understand my experience and perspective, helping me to be confident that I was also a good fit for the company and role rather than just a name on a list.  Throughout the process I was kept up to date and Nik was quick to answer any questions that I had.
