We are happy to provide references from our extensive list of past and current clients. Below are some quotes from clients, reproduced with the permission of those concerned:

Jane GreenoakMany thanks to Campbell Tickell for providing an excellent recruitment service from beginning to end. Denise really listened carefully to our needs and assembled a high quality recruitment package. The field of expertise that the package attracted was diverse, experienced, professional and well- researched. We had a very long list of candidates to choose from and were able to select a fantastic shortlist. The support throughout the interview process kept us focused and clear about our needs. The final selection and appointment was straightforward. We now have three new excellent board members.

barringtonbillingsOn behalf of Arhag, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Campbell Tickell for the excellent way they managed our recent recruitment process for a new Chief Executive. They made a very intensive process seem easy and seamless as it moved through the various stages. This is the third time we have used Campbell Tickell for recruiting a Chief Executive (two permanent recruitments and one interim) and on each occasion their professionalism and vast knowledge of the sector have contributed significantly to the efficient way the recruitment was managed. We have had a big response from applicants resulting in an excellent appointment being made. I also found that their cost offered exceptional value for money when compared with other similar companies an important aspect given the tough economic situation we are all facing. Finally, they were so relaxed and friendly and just a pleasure to work with.   I certainly look forward to working with them again in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend them to any organisation and would like to express most sincere tahnks to the team at Campbell Tickell for a job well done!

Barrington Billings,  Chair, ARHAG Housing Association

Jenny M CroppedThank you so much to Greg and team for an outstanding job in helping us recruit our new Chairman. Your help with what was a thorough process and in supporting our final selection was invaluable.  All candidates spoke very highly of the whole process and the calibre of candidates was exceptional.  We could have appointed any one of the last three candidates, which is testament to the great job by you and your team. All together a rigorous process and appointment. Michael, our CEO, and the Board are delighted with the outcome.

Jenny Manser, Chairman, Broadland Group

BAWe have worked with Campbell Tickell on a number of occasions, most recently on the appointment of our Chief Executive.  We selected CT as a result of a competitive process. They impressed us from the start throughout with their knowledge, and expertise, experience of and success in appointing at this level, combined with depth of reach into the sector, with enough into sectors more widely (the latter which was important to us in this appointment).  

From the start they showed that they wanted to “walk in our shoes”, to find the right person for our role, and this way of working came across strongly all the way along. Their back up administration was superb, they shouldered a lot of this and it was all spot on. The search, and attraction strategy worked well. There was contact with the lead consultant (Gera Patel) throughout, who kept us briefed and ahead of things all the way along. The stages of the selection process were effective, it was the right mix to ensure we had a good field and the final selection event was well thought out, well designed and tested out all that was needed. We felt very effectively supported throughout.  They presented to and worked with our key stakeholders in a highly professional and sensitive way.

What stood out for us was they were willing to push us to think about things we might not have thought of ourselves. They didn’t just “take our brief” but listened, and added a huge amount of value. We have a super appointee as a result. Thank you.

rodcahillI was really impressed with the efficient and proactive service provided by Maggie Rafalowicz and the team at Campbell Tickell in helping us to source one of our Board members and delighted that we were able to choose between a number of strong candidates.

Gerry Marshall Circles UKOur previous experience of using consultants to help us find the best possible Chief Executive for our small but growing national charity had been disappointing. We were rather sceptical about going through the process again so soon. However, Gera Patel, Partner at Campbell Tickell, and her colleague impressed us with their forethought and their honesty and grasped the key issues through careful questioning and investigation. They helped us review our previous specification and made us think through afresh what we really were looking for and why. They also got the right balance between doing the work for us and ensuring that we were comfortable and owned the process at each stage. They planned and executed the long and shortlisting efficiently and supported and challenged us in our appraisals, all the while ensuring that our costs were proportionate. They then completed the feedback process and the reference gathering in a sensitive and timely fashion. I believe that our decision to trust Gera and her team has been exonerated and we are very pleased with the competitive field attracted and the successful candidate who we appointed.

adamhumphreysMany thanks for providing such a good service in our search for a new Board Member. The quality of the interviewees and the process overall were excellent.

Adam Humphreys, Chair, CityWest Homes

timdoyleCity West appointed Campbell Tickell to assist in the recruitment of a Chair for the Board. The project was led by Greg Campbell and he and his team provided an extremely high quality service. We were delighted with the wide range of excellent candidates who applied for the position and were able to make a first class appointment. The communication from Greg and his colleagues was extremely good and a complex process ran very smoothly in relation to the demanding timescales that had been put in place. I would have no hesitation in recommending Campbell Tickell to other organisations.

nickwoodI’m very pleased to say that our advert on your website was very successful. We had 8 responses, which translated into 4 interviews, and 2 really excellent candidates who we’ve been able to offer board membership too. Its often difficult for small HAs to recruit board members, and to be able to pick up a former medium sized HA CE and a recently retired large HA FD was beyond our expectations.

Nick Wood, Chief Executive, Crown Housing Association Ltd

brendanryanI just wanted to drop you a note to say what a terrific job Gera [Patel] did for us in our recent recruitment exercise. She was supportive and understanding throughout the whole process, helped me hone our requirements, showed great insight into all the candidates and was always willing to go that extra mile for us.

A thoroughly professional job. I would have no hesitation in using Campbell Tickell again and recommending them to others
