RECOMMENDATIONS

Sean has successfully recruited two people to date for Localz and I imagine there will be more to come as we grow. We started working with Sean after receiving a personal recommendation (and after a number of false starts with other larger agencies). 


By taking the time to meet and workshop with us to thoroughly understand what our specific needs were and providing advice on shaping roles to suit the UK market, Sean was then able to undertake a rapid and focused search and create a strong short list of candidates. I am happy to endorse and recommend Sean to businesses of any size.

Tim Andrew

CEO , Localz

I have worked successfully with Sean over a number of years, so when I was appointed Head of International Operations at Feedzai and asked to build a business from the ground up, he was my first choice.

Sean’s flexibility and attention to the detailed requirements I had, made it a quick process to get up and running to go after the right candidates. With Sean’s tenacity I knew he would quickly identify, and bring in the right successful senior professionals for me. Sean delivered with his usual efficiency, meaning I could ensure I was running the business while he seamlessly managed the recruitment process in conjunction with my HR team. Enormous amounts of my time were saved and most importantly I secured the key senior talent I needed to launch my business in the UK…

Richard Harris

Head of International Operations , Feedzai

Sean was a very effective headhunter – taking me from Amex to PayPal… good research got him to the right person and from then on he kept the process well paced and clear, ensuring all participants were well informed throughout. He displayed a genuine desire to deliver for both parties not just for himself – as can be the case for some headhunters.

Mark Brant

General Manager, Merchant Services , PayPal

I have worked with Sean for over two years during his time at BSkyB. He was firstly instrumental in recruiting me from AOL. Subsequently I became one of his key stakeholders and I worked with him both directly and indirectly via my team and his.

I have always found Sean to be a very competent and likeable professional. He uses his considerable enthusiasm and experience to very good effect, via his team and directly, driving recruitment projects forward and delivering what he says he will deliver. Beyond the process he became my trusted advisor on recruitment related issues, not afraid to challenge in a reasonable way to provide expert opinion which helped inform my own decision making. Sean is pleasant and fun to be around and a valued member of my extended virtual team. I would recommend him highly.

Stephen (Steve) Prendergast

Director, Operations Engineering , BSkyB

I have known Sean for a number of years as a provider of recruitment services. More recently he has also become a mentor for my career development. Sean gives recruitment consultants a good name, he acts in the best interest of the candidate and customer, not the recruitment company. He is always open and honest in his dealings, clearly knows the recruitment industry, and has a real eye for detail. Sean is the first person I speak to when looking to fill senior IT roles, or when considering a change of role for myself.

Chris Noblet

Non Executive Director , iCademia

I reported to Sean for almost 12 months. During that time I found Sean to be a very supportive manager, without being over bearing. He is a very experienced and knowledgeable recruiter who has been a great sounding board. He has a strong and productive approach with stakeholders at all levels. In summary Sean knows when to manage from a distance and when to get more involved. This is a balance most people managers usually struggle with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sean.

Danny Caines

Vice President, Recruitment – JP Morgan

Sean managed my whole joining process at PayPal. From initial contact to beyond my start date he was totally thorough, informative, consultative and supremely professional. From a Candidate’s perspective the whole experience was First Class. It is clear that he wastes neither client nor candidate’s time – highly efficient. I would recommend you call him if you are looking for opportunities or need talent. A very well respected partner who consistently delivers, both from my own experience and from what I hear from third party clients. He’s also a great guy!

Nick Adams

Head of Business Development – Ingenico Group

I’ve known Sean for about five years. During that period, he has consistently shown his high level of commitment to being an exceptional headhunter. He takes time to listen to client needs, and invests in getting to know his growing universe of candidate contacts. Since I’ve known him, Sean has presented me with a number of interesting opportunities, most recently including a successful placement with one of the world’s leading online brands. I’d unreservedly recommend Sean if you are looking for candidates for key roles who represent a strong cultural, as well as skills and experienced based fit.

James Winter

Director of Sales & Partnerships – Payoneer

Sean’s background enables him to really understand and manage both clients and candidates expectations, ensuring he offers a thorough and professional service to everyone he deals with. Sean is very pro-active in his approach, without being pushy / forceful and I would highly recommend Sean to any clients seeking to find top mid or senior level talent in the market.

Graham Gordon

Customer Development Manager – Wex Photographic

Sean approached me about a new SMB Manager role at PayPal whilst I was working for Amazon. He kept me up to date with all dates for interviews and feedback and was very helpful providing support on best approaches and what PayPal were looking for. Sean was extremely professional in his approach and was always looking for what was best for me as a candidate rather than just push me into a role that I may or not be suited to. I would have no problem recommending Sean to anyone looking to recruit great people into their organizations.

Nick Griffiths

Head of Large Merchant Sales – PayPal

I worked for Sean in the Sky Technology Recruitment Team at Sky. Sean achieved fantastic results whilst at Sky. He was a hands on manager, led by example and motivated his team to consistently deliver large volumes of tough technology roles, seeking innovative ways to maintain an outstandingly low cost per hire. Sean’s knowledge and insight into the ever changing, fast paced technology markets is fantastic but his recruitment expertise isn’t limited to just this field, Sean worked across commercial & sales markets to name a couple and always built rewarding relationships with suppliers, candidates and stakeholders across the business to get great results. Sean is enthusiastic, passionate and a highly knowledgeable and skilled recruitment professional to work with. He would always challenge you to get the best results possible and support you in developing your own expertise- sharing tips, ideas and learnings so you can grow as a professional too. Sean’s great fun to work with and his enthusiasm is infectious – as a colleague or a candidate – Sean brings a great sense of professionalism yet fun to any recruitment he is involved with.

Debbie Gilliard (Cole)

Amazon Media Group Recruitment Manager

Sean and I worked together to recruit some members of my team. Working with Sean was fantastic as everything we discussed he was able to deliver. Very good at what he does which is recruitment. Excellent person to work with.

Emilios Theori

Client Technologies Solution Lead/Architect – BSKYB

…over the next three years, Sean and I worked very closely together. Sean has a particularly strong understanding of the Technology function and this knowledge combined with his enthusiastic, driven and customer orientated approach allowed him to build strong relationships with a variety of senior managers across Technology. Sean significantly improved the quality of the recruitment service delivered, adopting a proactive approach to a variety of issues, from resource planning to regularly averting and resolving potential conflict situations. Sean was fun to work with, but not afraid to challenge where required, I would commend him highly.

Steve Wright

HR Business Partner – Ladbrokes

Sean worked closely with me on the recruitment for a number of very difficult roles. I can thoroughly recommend him as he took the time to really understand what I was looking for despite the time pressures and the significant extra work to fulfil these. If Carlsberg made talent resourcers…
