OUR CLIENT EXPERIENCE
Pankaj MistryConsultant/Head of Info Sec & Risk
David is absolute pleasure to work with. He is well connected and a total professional. Very engaging and takes the time to understand situational needs and circumstances. David does not over promise and always delivers on his commitments and can be relied on with integrity and credibility.
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.
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.
James BlandfordCommercial Finance Leader | MBA Candidate
David has been great to work with. Professional, friendly and full of value-added insight into the current market. I’m always interested to hear David’s ideas on team structure and the make up of my team. A true business partner.
Mike RicePortfolio Director at Endless LLP
When I was first considering leaving practice a number of years ago, I approached David on the recommendation of a former colleague. I found the conversations we had to be extremely useful both in regard to specific opportunities I could look at, but more importantly through David’s ability and willingness to get to the heart of what I thought was important for my career and to help me shape my view of what I was looking for. A great chap and someone I would happily endorse for other people to speak too.
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.
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.
