Parul Shukla

Head of People

John took on a difficult job in finding us candidate for a relatively specific role to our business, requiring a difficult level of experience and skills to find in the current market. John was upfront about the challenge of filling this role but took the time to speak to me directly to understand both the type of personality we were looking for as well as the experience and skill set. He also clearly took onboard the ethos and vision of our team and was able to get that across to the successful candidate.

Communication was good throughout the process, from the search itself to the interview process and resulting hire. Crucially, the hire was completed prior to the incumbent in the role and the successful candidate started the week after the incumbent left, saving us a period of significant gap in resource.
