We would like to thank all of our clients for the faith and trust they have placed in us. Here is a flavour of their experience of working with Barclay Simpson.
Chris Watson - Senior Investigation & Business Development Manager, Ibas
“We are a specialist data recovery and computer forensics consultancy with offices in over 20 countries. We opened the UK arm just 3 years ago and the majority of our recruitment is undertaken directly with our contacts in the industry. We had not had the need to use a recruitment agency before but had a specific requirement for a Senior Forensic Investigation Manager that we had not been able to fill this time using our own network. We contacted Barclay Simpson having seen their advert in SC Magazine. When we spoke with the consultant (Ruth) we were impressed by her knowledge of this niche area of information security. Having given her the brief she came back with an impressive shortlist of candidates. We selected one of Ruth’s candidates for the post and he has proved to be an invaluable member of our forensic team. We would highly recommend Barclay Simpson to any company recruiting in the security field. We found their service professional and friendly, and they have excellent market knowledge, which makes the recruitment process so much easier and efficient. We will definitely be using Barclay Simpson again for our future hires.”
Secure Operations Manager, Global Telco
“Having enjoyed an extremely fruitful working relationship with Barclay Simpson for a number of years with many successes, I would highly recommend their services for any organisational recruitment process. Their interaction from start to finish, including candidate selection, has proved invaluable, especially given the aggressive timescales I have had to work to. This has not hindered Barclay Simpson; indeed they have always risen to the challenge and have provided numerous quality candidates who have all enjoyed successful careers within the Telco Government Sector.”
Sarah Hillary - Director, AHL Limited
“AHL Limited is a specialist provider of internal audit, corporate governance and risk management services. As a fairly young company we have benefited from the credibility Barclay Simpson has been able to add to our recruitment process in seeking specialist internal audit staff. A key strength of the Barclay Simpson consultants we have worked with over the last 4 years has been their skill in understanding our brief and ensuring that the candidates they propose fully meet our specification. We consider Barclay Simpson to be a valued partner in the recruitment of all our professional staff and would strongly recommend them.”
Jim Callaghan - Senior Audit Manager, London City Audit Consortium
“I am responsible for ensuring that all temporary and permanent recruitment needs for the London City Audit Consortium are met. The Consortium provides healthcare internal audit, risk management and counter fraud services to 14 NHS organisations in The City, East and South East London. During my 15-year career in internal audit, I have always been aware of Barclay Simpson’s reputation as the leaders in the field of sourcing and placing quality internal auditors in both permanent and temporary roles. In my present role, I have used Barclay Simpson for the last several years, during which time I have found them to be consistently professional and knowledgeable in terms of recognising my recruitment needs.
Unlike many other recruitment agencies whose consultants seem unaware of the distinction between internal and external audit and thus waste my time by providing me with CVs of inappropriate candidates, Barclay Simpson consultants always provide a high level of service. My main contact for the last two years has been Philippa Walters who has, over this period, successfully placed several excellent permanent and temporary auditors with the Consortium. I would strongly recommend Barclay Simpson to any organisation involved in recruiting internal auditors.”
Chrysta Sparks - Recruitment Manager, Global Home Loans
“We recently worked with Barclay Simpson to recruit a risk officer, and, although the candidate we chose wasn’t put forward by Barclay Simpson, I was very impressed with the service they provided in trying to fill this vacancy. It was a hard to fill role and they consistently presented good quality candidates and managed expectations all round. I look forward to working with them on other recruitment projects later this year.”
