"Open, honest, collaborative and communicative, Scott mixes utmost professionalism with humour and personality, which makes the (often painful) process of finding top talent a pleasant experience" - UK Head of HR

What Our Partners Say

"What you need when you are recruiting is someone who understands your requirements, who can put themselves in your shoes as they sift through the masses of CVs for the candidates that are appropriate for your needs.

Anybody can throw CVs at a client, but very few can throw the right ones and the certainty that the skillset and cultural fit are aligned to the client’s needs.

With Scott you get someone who has the industry knowledge within Procurement & Supply Chain, he just gets it because he has done it, he also has integrity in abundance, something that can be overlooked as we play our part in the "recruiting game".

Other recruitment organisations should take a good look at themselves and understand you don't need sales people to recruit, you need subject matter experts who know what their clients are seeking.

Would I use Scott again? Absolutely, in a heartbeat!"

Supply Chain & Procurement Director

"It is an absolute pleasure to work with Scott. Open, honest, collaborative and communicative, Scott mixes utmost professionalism with humour and personality, which makes the (often painful) process of finding top talent a pleasant experience.

Scott takes the time to fully understand the needs and personality of the organisation before recommending candidates, but still delivers within often very often tight timescales.

I look forward to working with Scott again, and have no hesitation in recommending him to support your executive search"

UK Head of HR

"The successful appointment of a Procurement Manager was the first time that we have worked with Scott

We were attracted by the entrepreneurial nature of his approach and his commitment to delivering a personal service in an energetic, passionate and structured manner.

Scott took time at the start of the process to really understand the brief, taking time to talk to various stakeholders to the role and to get a feel for the culture of our business.

We had regular reviews during the process with open and transparent communication culminating in a strong candidate list and with Mark Southall joining us this week.

Great outcome!"
