Testimonials from our clients

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 service throughout the recruitment process. We enjoyed regular communication and their professional advice led to a successful search for an important senior team member.

~ Executive Director of Operations, Look Ahead , London

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.

~ Group Commercial Director, Peel Ports Group , North West England

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.

~ UK MD Trains & Modernisation, Alstom , North West England

Collingwood were impressive, not just by the end result – which was a high calibre candidate to fulfil our exacting demands for a key role – but in particular their tenacity, though always professional, was clearly key to a successful outcome. Furthermore, their honesty in presenting possibilities was refreshing, especially by comparison with traditional recruitment agencies.

~ Managing Director, Tamlite , West Midlands

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.

~ HR Manager, HS1 , London

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.
