The Chamber sought Debbie’s support for the recruitment of an interim Regional Executive Director role as we required some extra help to find the right individual after some initial open advertising. Her insights were invaluable both in terms of how we were expressing what we wanted job description wise but also suggestions of how the market was currently behaving and candidate expectations. She sourced several excellent potential candidates for us to interview and we have been absolutely delighted with the candidate we appointed. She cuts right to the chase and sees and understands the needs of both the recruiting company and the candidates as equal in importance which I believe is essential to get the right fit. I would highly recommend working with Debbie and have since passed on a number of candidates to her for advice and as potential future clients.

Lauryn approached me for a role that I didn’t even know I was looking for! I am so glad she did as I am now going into a role that I would never have considered myself capable of. The knowledge and passion Lauryn had about the role when we were chatting was remarkable and had me completely invested from the beginning. Throughout the recruitment process Lauryn was firmly in my corner and I felt completely supported by her. I appreciated the regular check ins and prep conversations. When I went to interview I wanted the role for Lauryn as much as myself as she had invested so much time in me. She completely believed I was the right candidate throughout and we were successful! Lauryn would send emails and messages of support throughout, even on the days of interviews. I felt that was such a lovely touch and I wasn’t just another customer. As I move into my new role I have recommended Lauryn to numerous colleagues and will continue to do so. I wish her the very best of luck for her future in recruitment and I am grateful for all of the support she afforded me.
Linda Harkin – Candidate
I was immediately taken with the professionalism projected by the Aspen website and then in my initial conversation with Debbie, followed by an excellent proposal package. The scale and quality of the candidate response was really impressive – far beyond anything we could have conjured through our own efforts. Having all the legwork taken off us throughout the process was an enormous relief too, in particular not having to make the difficult calls to disappointed candidates, which is always so hard. The information provided at sift was concise and useful, and having someone to keep us on track during interviews was very useful. Overall it was a fantastic experience which I would thoroughly recommend. You managed to remove most of the stress from what could otherwise have been a really stressful experience. Thank you!

Debbie recently supported me in finding a new senior leadership role within the Third Sector. Throughout the process, Debbie was really supportive and attentive to my needs, always making sure I had the information I needed and was across all communications, reaching out continuously without leaving anything to drift. Debbie has the right balance of really making you feel she is batting for you while maintaining a professional approach to the recruitment process. I very much enjoyed the process, not something I have often felt in a recruitment and that was largely down to the way Debbie managed it. I would have absolute confidence in recommending Debbie to any organisation or individual.
Jeremy Miles – Candidate
I’ve known Debbie in a professional capacity for some time now and have no hesitation in recommending her and her team for the professional range of services she delivers. Debbie’s personal style makes her engaging and adds immense value to the relationships that are so key in the professional appointments field. I’ve worked directly with Debbie to secure my current appointment and can assuredly say with no fear of contradiction, how perfectly she matched the requirements she was tasks with from both my perspective and that off the other party. Should you need a highly connected headhunter or senior professionals recruiter, you could do no better than to work with Debbie and her team.
