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

Jeanette approached me as part of a confidential search. She was accommodating with scheduling, prompt with replies, clear in communication and committed to partnering with her client and with me as a prospect. Throughout the process, I always knew what to expect, was able to prepare, and received feedback. Jeanette and Collingwood brought a match together that would not have happened otherwise!

~ Placed Candidate, Global Account Director

Having worked with Collingwood previously I didn't hesitate to re-engage with them. We wanted to create 2 new board level appointments. These were viewed as critical additions. The appointments were followed by a structured tripartite coaching programme. Through Mark's understanding of the building products market he was able to guide in the sub-sectors that would broaden the talent pool.

~ Managing Director - VEKA

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.
