Testimonials from our clients
Collingwood managed the whole process of changing jobs extremely professionally and had obviously done their homework as the role they identified was a good fit for my profile and career progression. I was very happy with Collingwood's work and would certainly work with them again.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
