Client Testimonials


As Head of HR you can imagine that I get inundated with recruitment agencies and head hunters. In most cases they promise the world and know exactly what we want as a business, so they say! Ginnie is special. She really does want to get to know the business and also wants to know what I call the 'extras'. What kind of person are you looking for? What would make them a good fit in the department/organisation? The proof I guess is that I have worked with Ginnie for many years and most times she has delivered. Not only has she delivered, but 90% of the people have stayed with the companies I have recruited them for and have thrived. 

If getting the right person is the most important thing and you are prepared to wait and trust Ginnie to find that person, she will not let you down. Without doubt, the best head hunter I have worked with.

MO, Head of HR

I have known Ginnie for many years and on many occasions have used her to recruit on my behalf. I have always found Ginnie to be incredibly diligent, methodical and communicative and very understanding of the fact that any appointment is a two-way street and that compatibility for both candidate and client are absolutely paramount. 

Ginnie certainly ensures that she has good base information to work from and takes time to understand the exact requirements of the client in terms of skills, cultural fit, flexibility required etc. and takes this into account when representing candidates or shortlisting. I will continue to use Ginnie for requirements which fit within her candidate tiers going forward.

- AG, Interim General Manager

We asked Harmas Riley to assist us in recruitment. We found Ginnie to be both helpful and proactive and as is not always the case in recruitment; able to give regular updates on progress. This assisted our thinking in getting the right result. There were some issues that needed dealing with in the process but Ginnie sorted them and we ended up with an excellent candidate.

- CP, Managing Director

Harmas Riley showed first class knowledge of the area combined with professional recruitment processes. These and most importantly, support for both the company and candidates through the recruitment process and beyond...has created the basis of an excellent service. They would be first on the list to call for another candidate!

- MG, Managing Director

When we were looking for a new Engineering Manager we went through the usual routes - we advertised and approached a number of conventional agencies. We couldn't find the candidate with the right skills and the right fit for the team. I then approached Ginnie at Harmas Riley and she quickly came up with a good quality shortlist. We recruited from this shortlist and now, two months in, i am absolutely convinced we made the right decision and got the right candidate. The key difference with Ginnie is that she really listened and understood our needs before responding with a shortlist of candidates.

- PF, General Manager

The objective of paying for a recruitment consultancy is to remove stress and time, whilst finding a suitable person. Harmas Riley sent in one candidate only, but of high calibre. When other agents sent in lots of unsuitable individuals, this for us, was the most valuable contribution.

- SD, Technical Controller

​Ginnie is very professional, has great knowledge and contacts in the industry. She is relentless in her search for the right person and hasn't failed me yet !!
I have worked with Ginnie on a number vacancies and would have no hesitation recommending her.
