“Rob acted for me in the search and placement of a new CFO and I was impressed by the speed and professionalism Rob showed in the assignment. Our requirements were not straightforward as we were looking for a CFO with extensive city and international experience and were operating on a tight deadline. Rob not only succeeded in the assignment but introduced a number of very good candidates who all met the requirements so we were spoilt for choice. His easy going yet professional approach was most refreshing and I would certainly recommend Rob to anyone looking to recruit senior personnel in the future.”

Peter Fowler – CEO - Westminster Group Plc

Richard Crayston – Managing Director - Ainscough Training Services Ltd

Fiona's approach right from the beginning has been very transparent and has always been very honest and frank about the outcomes and expectations and hence I was always well informed about every perspective. The entire recruitment process was completed in almost a week's time in finding me a new role and her speed of delivery is commendable.

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Fiona if you’re currently seeking new opportunities. ”

Thank you !

“Ben helped to place me with Fairhurst and I have worked with him to recruit team members for various roles in the past. He has an open an honest attitude which is refreshing in the recruitment trade and he has a good understanding of people and the roles that would best suit.”

Paul Farrington – Accounts and Audit Senior Manager - Fairhurst

“This was the first time I had dealt with Fiona and I found her to be a brilliant and extremely helpful recruiter. She provided excellent service and support throughout my job search and kept me informed and updated at all stages of the progress even keeping in touch with me whilst she was on holiday. I would highly recommend Fiona to anyone.”

Rachel Gaffney – Management Accountant – LSE Retail Group Ltd

“I have known Rob for a number of years, but Rob recently placed me into my current role as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director of DJI Holdings plc. I have worked with many recruiters in my career and I can honestly say Rob is one of the most professional and honest I have ever worked with. Rob worked with me in finding opportunities that would best fit both my career ambitions and the type of environment in which I could thrive in. This meant we focused on a limited number of potential roles with a high potential of success. As a result the time from initial discussions to successful placement was extremely short versus my past experience. I was previously based in London, but as Rob has a strong network across the whole of the UK (not just the NorthWest) he was able to put me in touch with opportunities outside of London, giving me the best chance of success.

I wholeheartedly would recommend Rob to both individuals seeking new opportunities and to employers who have recruitment needs. Rob is very knowledgeable of the industry but also very personable making the process that much more enjoyable.

I will be utilising Simpson Judge going forward for my recruitment needs.”

Scott Kennedy – Group CFO – BNN Technology Plc

“Emma has helped me to find the ideal role within a fantastic Company. Emma's knowledge of her clients is exceptional, so goes over and above to ensure you are fully prepared prior to an interview. I also found the feedback and follow up communication to be excellent. I would highly recommend Emma for Accountancy and Finance Recruitment.”

Kelly Wilson – Finance Manager – SIRVA Relocation

“In obtaining my new role, this was the first time that I had properly worked with Fiona from the point of view of being a candidate. I think that she is an excellent and very helpful and supporting recruiter.

She went to great lengths to find me a new role including thinking pro actively across her client base both existing and new. She provided an excellent service by keeping me informed of the progress with things even whilst she was off on annual leave.

With this in mind she has my highest recommendation.”

Darren Ball FCA – Financial Controller – Quint Group

“Ben was fantastic in dealing with our recruitment needs, I get inundated with CV's on a regular basis, many of which are irrelevant to our staffing needs. Ben listened and filtered his candidates accordingly meaning that only people suitable for our vacancy were proposed for interview. Would definitely recommend Ben for your staffing issues.”

Phil Dawson – Accountant

“Rob recently placed me into my current role as Deputy Chief Financial Officer at BNN Technology plc. I have dealt with a number of recruiters in the past, but I felt that it was Rob who fully understood my experience and how my skills could be projected into new opportunities. He took the time to review my previous roles and discover what motivates me in the workplace, to produce potential opportunities that felt both challenging and fitting.

I will definitely be speaking to Rob in the future to assist with my recruitment requirements and can certainly recommend him to others seeking their next move.”

Emma Rawlinson – Deputy CFO – BNN Technology Plc

“I have used Suzanne for many years on placements both in the North West and South East area for indirect tax specialist areas - as we all know, there are very good and very bad recruitment consultants - but I can safely say that Suzanne is one of the very good ones.. a rare breed of about 3 or 4 I have dealt with over the years!”

Fiona Richards – Managing Director – Deutsche Bank

“Suzanne is a very approachable person who looks out for the best opportunities for you. She gives practical advice and is always contactable if you ever have any problems.

It was a pleasure to have Suzanne helping me and I would definately use her again”

Kelly McMillan – VAT Accountant

“Emma goes above and beyond for her clients. She is professional, helpful and I cannot recommend her work enough. Brilliant service and a brilliant at what she does. ”
