Client Testimonials

"Robert has supported my recruitment needs in several areas over the past 20 years or so. In times of turbulence and change, recruitment is probably the most important thing to get right, and there are 3 aspects of Robert's work I'd like to recommend. First, his overall approach is thoroughly professional: he insists on really understanding the requirement before taking on the brief, and his sole aim is to support the recruitment requirement (ie not to expand his own role!) Second, his ability to assemble a range of suitable candidates is exceptional, and this is especially important for senior roles, where a focus on a specific sector is not always the best approach. In this context, Robert has a great sense of 'cultural fit'. Finally, his prioritisation of candidates nearly always proves to be right, so that I can now rely on his advice - helping me to speed up the process.

I unreservedly recommend Robert."
Bill Bird - Managing Director - SCS

Candidate Testimonials

"Robert led my recruitment to SCS. During the whole of the process, I found Robert to be committed to achieving the best result for his client and dedicated to moving the process along at a reasonable pace. Looking back, the experience was a good one and I would recommend Robert and his Company to anyone looking to recruit at the Executive level."
