We engaged Basil leRoux from Berwick Partners to find a replacement for our HR Director who was retiring. In the initial meeting with me, he demonstrated a good understanding of the brief and provided some useful insight into the market. During the search his responsiveness was excellent and I was particularly pleased with the speed at which he worked in sourcing individuals as we were keen to ensure an overlap with the incumbent. From his shortlist a number of the candidates were appointable and the individual selected has already had a significant impact on our business.

Basil’s in-depth knowledge of the human resources market coupled with his impressive client and assignment track record made him the obvious partner when we embarked on our recruitment process for a Head of Human Resources. He got our culture and the skills set required and articulated these positively to the market. The short list was impressive and the successful candidate has been a great addition to our organisation.
