We were thoroughly impressed with Barclay Simpson’s understanding not only of the current requirements of this position but also what the position would look like in 5 years’ time. Equal emphasis was placed on both finding the candidate with the right skillset but also making sure that the candidate’s cultural background was one very similar to our own. We will continue using Barclay Simpson for support in our legal searches.
We had struggled to fill this role directly at the right level and with the right experience. Barclay Simpson very quickly presented us with two very good candidates that both made it through to final stage interviews. One of them was successfully hired. The eventual hire was completed within a turnaround of four weeks after we had searched directly for a lot longer than that.
The thing that stood out for me was how incredibly thorough Barclay Simpson were in their approach to this requirement – we were highly impressed by the number of candidates supplied and by the breadth and skill level of the candidates they were able to present to us within the agreed timescales. We hired someone who we know is going to build out a best-in-class sanctions function. The business is delighted.
We received excellent service. Barclay Simpson not only really understood the blend of experience, skills and attitude we were looking for in a candidate but were also in control of the recruitment process throughout which made everything so much easier!
