Lisa’s testimonials

Director | Employee Relations, HR Policy and Regulatory EMEA and APAC | Barings

“I worked with Lisa for about a year looking for my next opportunity that would give me growth and also something that I would find interesting. This was a challenging search: I wasn’t totally clear on what my next role should be to and had expressed an interest in moving into a role more focused on employee relations but was also looking at HR operations leader roles. Lisa’s experience in HR; her depth of understanding of the HR function and what is required of different roles was pivotal in this process. Also, her understanding of my career to date and experience meant that she was able to focus my attention on some key roles.

Finally, as someone who has worked as a female leader within HR Lisa really helped me overcome my fear of not having done every element of the role before and really encouraged me. Had she not done this I wouldn’t be in the position I am today – in a role that is challenging and interesting, working for a great company.”

“I can’t recommend Lisa more highly – she was absolutely fantastic to work with. First of all, she really took the time to get to know me and my skills to match me to appropriate roles rather than just trying to put me into a similar role to my most recent one. Additionally, she is always on it – super quick to follow up with both clients and candidates and makes sure the process moves along which is ideal for all parties. I really look forward to working with Lisa again!”

“It was a fantastic experience working with Lisa, as she is also an HR professional, she really understands the roles and experiences needed to match candidates to roles. She understood my requirements and at every stage of all the processes took time to brief me in detail for the roles and firms I was put forward for. I always felt prepped and confident before each of my meetings and regular updates from Lisa also meant that I was always kept in the loop. Essentially, she understands people hence why I have recommended her to friends and people in my HR network who are looking for new opportunities.”

“Lisa’s desire to understand the client and organisation that she represents is extremely valuable. This insight allows us to trust that there is knowledge of the business’ culture and practices when speaking to other clients or organisations on our behalf. Lisa is also a HR professional by trade which creates a deeper understanding of the needs that need to be filled for any particular search. This knowledge also creates a great sounding board and colleague to discuss other HR related issues that we are working on internally.”
