OUR CLIENT EXPERIENCE
Wendie GrovesBusiness Support manager at Primary Care Commissioning
I worked with David recently on recruitment to a senior position and found him extremely knowledgeable and approachable throughout the entire process. He was flexible and accommodating ensuring that we had a good selection of candidates to consider. This was the first time we have used David as a recruiter and I would not hesitate to contact them again in the future.
Max CawthraGroup Finance Director at Tracsis Plc
I have worked with David for many years and from leaving my professional days with EY as a candidate, leading through to my career as a client and now Finance Director within a Plc. David has been nothing but professional and consultative throughout this time, and consider him to be a true business partner in the way he approaches his work. On recently engaging the services of Gifford and Partners, David came out to our offices to help us structure a new role giving informed and knowledgeable direction based on his experience of servicing other clients and tailoring a solution specific to Tracsis Plc. David was able to give honest feedback on how to position our role, absorbed himself in understanding our business needs and showed patience in seeing a complex process through to a satisfactory close. I have no hesitation in referring Gifford and Partners to others and will be sure to continue using their services with future engagements in my finance team where required.
Kristian SuttonFinance Director at Acumen Waste Services
David has given me some very good advice, provided excellent candidates and is always available when required. He has a deep knowledge of his market place and understands our business requirements. He is not in your face or constantly on the phone just there when required.
Geoff ClaridgeCIMA Management Accountant
David was very helpful through a challenging recruitment process. He dealt with me in a professional and friendly manner at all times, keeping well informed at all times and offering guidance and advice along the way. I would thoroughly recommend him to others.
IAN GOULDINGNON EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR - HEALTH | RETAIL | HOSPITALITY
I have worked with David on two senior financial hires. Both were for businesses of which I’m a NED, and one was a headhunt for a CFO role. Effective planning, efficient execution, excellent candidate identification for the brief, as well as being cost effective are my main take-aways. Would not hesitate to use Gifford and Partners Recruitment Ltd again on other senior assignments.

Lucy WardChartered Accountant
I have worked with David since my relocation to the North East as both a candidate and an Employer. David assisted me into my previous role and provided career advice during a time when I changed direction. I have high regard to the advice that David can offer not only candidates but also businesses particularly at times of change and expansion. David is very honest and has a good knack at helping you work out what you want or need and is first on my list, whether I am looking for a role myself or recruiting staff.
Alison RoseSenior Director of Commercial Finance at SharkNinja
I have worked with David both on a client and candidate basis and I would recommend to other business and candidates for his professionalism and experience in the West Yorkshire finance market.
