Louise Hesketh

Financial Controller, Brand Addition.

I worked with Katie Seabrook recently on the recruitment of a Financial executive and I was extremely impressed. She took time to understand exactly what we were looking for including personality fit and has a very good understanding of our business and how we operate.

The candidates that she put forward in the short space of time we gave her were of a very good calibre and the individual we recruited has fitted into our team very well. I will definitely use Rowan for any future recruitment.

Richard Young

Director, BVCA.

Rowan didn’t just match candidates with a list of technical requirements – they spent time with each member of my team in order to gain a thorough understanding of what makes us tick, and consequently what type of individual they were looking for on our behalf.

I am also delighted with the way they represented the role – which meant that we were able to attract an exceptional candidate who was willing to relocate from London for the opportunity, despite there being no shortage of options for him in the capital.

Gary Brown

CFO, Jet2

I worked with Paul Waite extensively on realigning my finance team and their abilities to be able to support the acceleration in the strategic direction of the company.

Paul’s major attribute is that he spends time understanding the strategy and culture of the company, whilst realising that each phase of the strategy may require differing candidate qualities. Having a good network, Paul was able to supply quality candidates from a variety of backgrounds who not only matched the profile but more importantly brought a diversity of thinking to the department.

Creative Director & Founder, Fix 8 Group

It was great to work with Rowan in identifying the exact requirements that my business needed at the time. The service provided was not just a typical recruiter, they got to know the people, culture and motivation of the business. This was then the basis of the candidates we evaluated. Having placed both our FD/MD and Business Development manager, I can not think of a better company I would trust to look after the future of our business.

FD, MPM Products

Having first used Rowan as a candidate I found it refreshing that they not only listened to my career aspirations, they took the time to challenge and understand the rationale behind them.  Once this was understood, Rowan only recommended relevant roles to me and were extremely supportive during the recruitment process, including reviewing and making recommendations on a presentation to the Board which formed part of the interview process.  Following my experience of using Rowan as a candidate, I have used Rowan to recruit for roles within the team.  Rowan took the time to understand the requirements of the role but equally as important they took the time to understand the culture of the business to make sure recommended candidates could not only do the job but would be a good fit with the team.
