Client testimonials

"The HW team are a pleasure to work with: well informed, well connected and professional. I felt there was a personal approach to the search process and I was well supported for all conversations and interviews with my future employer. I wouldn't hesitate working with HW again and am very grateful for the service I received."

Sarah Ashby
Senior Director - Finance, Asda

"Recently when searching for my next senior role, I had the pleasure of working with HW. From the start of the process they were incredibly professional, ensuring that I was right for the role and the role was right for me. They kept in close touch throughout the process and were always on hand to answer questions or just to chat around where we were at any stage. This was my first interaction with HW and it won't be the last given their professionalism, attention to detail and commitment to both myself and my new employer. They were also incredibly down to earth. A great job well done!"

Ian Bryson
Managing Director, Lincoln & York

HW is not just an expert search partner, they are true business partner, bringing market insights and ongoing support following the placement. I have appreciated their trust, agility, and ability to connect to our culture to get the best fit for our organization.

Cheryl DeSantis
Chief People & Diversity Officer, Smile Direct Club

I have worked with HW not only because of their people, search methodology and reach but the two areas where I think they are really different. Firstly, they truly listen. They take the time to understand your business strategy and people requirements and then they forensically select against these. Secondly, they take this strategic understanding and use this to really sell your business, giving access to exceptional candidates. They are thorough, supportive, flexible and overall great value and fun to work with. I would highly recommend and still use them today!
