Our business is only as good as our reputation. Here is a selection of kind words shared by some of our trusted partners.

“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.”

emma bateman
operations director

“Anybody can throw CVs at a client, but very few can throw the right ones and the certainty that the skill set and cultural fit are aligned to the clients needs.

With Scott, you get someone who has the industry knowledge within Procurement & Supply Chain, he just gets it because he has done it.

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!”

andy neilson
supply chain & procurement director

“Scott has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to dealings with executive recruitment consultants, he was from day 1, Informative, helpful, prompt & supportive.

Other 'bigger' companies promise you earth & tell you that you are their 'focus' but then deliver nothing or are nearly impossible to get hold.

Scott was always on the end of the phone & available at any time & realises the importance of communication.
Could not recommend him highly enough.

His success in this somewhat fickle industry is in no question & he deserves the recognition he receives”
