Employer Testimonials

I worked with Guy to help find a permanent HR Director for Talarius who I was working for in an interim capacity. He was thorough, flexible and hugely customer orientated. I would very happily work with him in the future and can whole heartedly recommend him as a recruiter with expertise.

I have just finished working with Guy in placing somebody in a Senior FP&A role. What I really liked was that Guy took the time to understand the business and the key requirements of the role, and as result was extremely selective in putting forward candidates. And of course one of Guy's candidates was taken on. What more do I need to say.

Guy gets to the heart of the issue. He finds the right solution and is totally focussed on finding the right person for any role. He has a fantastic sense of business requirements and is a great hole filler. I'd always recommend him and frequently do.

Guy and the team at Harcourt Matthews helped me secure my current role. I was impressed with the attention to detail - clearly knowing his client and culture, which really helped me decide whether this role would be a good fit. He and his team were impressively quick, the whole process took a matter of weeks!, yet each stage had quality feedback, counsel and guidance. Thanks!

Harcourt Matthews first placed me at Threshers, so I've known them for coming up to 10 years. I have no hesitation in recommending them as a recruitment consultants - placing you or to use for hiring staff. They are brilliant at offering advice when needed and always makes an effort to keep in touch regularly. They would be my first point of contact if I was looking for another role and if I needed to employ a finance professional.

I have known Guy for over 15 years. Initially he helped me recruit several staff and we have kept in touch over the years. Most recently, he helped me find a new position. He was extremely helpful to me throughout my job search, from the outset to completion and beyond. From discussions with my new colleagues, Guy listened to their needs, understood well what they were seeking and kept in good communication with them throughout the recruitment process. I have no reservations in recommending Guy and expect to use him for any recruitment needs in the future.

I have personally worked with Harcourt Matthews on a number of assignments. They are always quick to respond and are happy to adapt their way of working to suit my needs. I especially appreciate their desire to understand and match candidates to the company's culture. The process is efficient and I know from speaking to candidates that they are well looked after too, which is key. The high calibre of their candidates and the open, honest and friendly way in which they conduct themselves makes them a definite member of my PSL for the foreseeable future.

The service offered by Harcourt Matthews stood head and shoulders above many of the big recruitment names in London, it was professional, efficient and honest. Most of the large recruitment consultancies are guilty of giving you all the sales ‘patter' at the beginning of a search and then sending you some thoroughly inappropriate candidates. All the candidates from Harcourt Matthews were of good quality and when opportunities next arise in my team, I would not hesitate to contact them.
