Testimonials from our clients

Iain managed the whole process of changing jobs extremely professionally and had obviously done his homework as the role he identified was a good fit for my profile and career progression. I was very happy with his work and would certainly work with him again

~ Head of Route Engineering at HS1

A project to determine clearer roles between operational & commercial was complemented with a focused programme to improve the sales capability in the commercial team. Collingwood spent significant time developing an understanding of our needs; designing the programme specifically for Peel Ports. They balanced first-class knowledge with participative sessions which kept the process fresh & alive.

~ Peel Ports Group, Group Commercial Director,

Collingwood have worked on three assignments in the last six months and on each and every occasion we have recruited from the candidates they have submitted. Not because they were ‘compromise candidates’ but because they were the best we had seen.

~ HS1

Collingwood was commissioned to recruit a Director of Learning Disability, a new position within the organisation and one that represents significant investment. Collingwood provided a professional, responsive and insightful services throughout the recruitment process. We enjoyed regular communication and their professional advice led to a successful search for an important senior team member.

~ Look Ahead, Executive Director of Operations

Through significant upfront investment, Collingwood was able to fully understand our brief and cultural fit of the individuals required. Through a targeted headhunt approach, along with behavioural profile assessment, they were able to provide a high calibre shortlist. The feedback from candidates and management all praised Collingwood's high level of professionalism and accountability.

~ Maped Helix, Managing Director

This change process gave everyone a fundamental understanding of why we needed to change. The resulting organisation was built to maximise opportunity whilst reflecting on risk. Without Collingwood’s expert facilitation the process of defining a Vision, Culture & Organisation Structure would have been more difficult, taken longer & wouldn’t have had the same staff engagement & understanding.
