Testimonials from our clients
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have had the pleasure of working with Collingwood over the past year. Our U.S.-based company has recently expanded into Europe where Collingwood's expertise and hard work proved to be invaluable to us in finding the right talent for key roles in the European expansion. I would not hesitate to work with them again.
A good search process from start to finish. Candidates shortlisted were all of a high standard and met our criteria.
