Testimonials from our clients

Chris Barker contacted me regarding a potential role which has now come to fruition. Without Chris' support and professionalism throughout the process it may not have given the same outcome. The whole process was smooth and Chris' regular contact and updates regarding the role made for a pleasant and satisfactory experience. I would highly recommend Chris and the team at Collingwood.

~ FMCG Candidate (Supply Chain)

Collingwood provide frequent and honest feedback throughout the search and provide supporting information alongside the candidate’s CV at shortlist stage. This includes detailed interview notes and behavioural profiling results. I would have no hesitation using Collingwood again and recommending them to other organisations.

~ Nicomatic

I have worked with Collingwood on a number of challenging UK and International assignments. Despite the prospect of finding needles in haystacks to meet our needs, Collingwood's knowledge of the market, determination and pro-activity have produced the required results. Their approach is refreshing and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them as a recruitment partner.

~ Honeywell CPG

This was our first time using Collingwood. We found Mark Goldsmith and his team to be very professional and were delighted with the high calibre of all the candidates presented for interview. Overall we were very impressed with the services of Collingwood.

~ IG Doors

We have been partnering Collingwood Executive Search for over 6 years and have successfully recruited a UK Managing Director, a UK GSM, a Global Training Director and a Regional Sales Director in Spain. They really understand the European Opthalmic Industry and combined with their focus on understanding our company culture, they have simplified our recruitment process.


The most positive outcome of the process has been the involvement of Collingwood and in particular, Ben. I greatly valued his friendly, patient support and advocacy during the process and hope that we can keep in touch and form a fruitful professional relationship
