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.
Dave WiddowsonFinance Director EU, Lansinoh Laboratories Inc
Having recently used David to run a successful recruitment process, I can say that I found him very easy to work with and appreciated the speedy and tailored list of clients put forward for consideration. I will certainly use David again in the future and would recommend him to others too.
THOMAS BOSZKOPRIVATE EQUITY PARTNER AT ALCHEMY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES LLP
In my capacity as a partner at Alchemy Private Equity, I have worked with many recruiters. I recently worked with David on a CFO search and was hugely impressed, despite it not being an easy mandate. David took the time to really understand the needs of the various stakeholders and to get under the skin of the business. He then worked quickly to propose a short list and after a few rounds, we were left with a final 3 candidates, all of whom were more than capable of the role. Having the luxury of choice, and so quickly, is rare indeed. I would very strongly recommend David
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.

David has a really good experience and knowledge around the recruitment and accounting industry. I have known David throughout most of my accounting career and glad I have had the chance to work with him. Very professional and approachable making it a very easy relationship to have, especially when you first start in accounting not knowing what the market has to offer. He has offered great advice in the past without me asking and has definitely been a wonderful partner to work with. In the future whenever I feel its time to look in the market, Gifford and Partners is definitely the first place I would consider.
Thank you David for all your help in the past it has been greatly appreciated!
Annabel GrattonExperienced Finance Professional with LEAN Six Sigma 'Green Belt' training
David placed me in my current role and was very helpful throughout the application and interview process. He kept me updated regularly and took the time to get to know me personally before putting me forward to any of his clients. Once I had received an offer from my now current role, he encouraged me to still attend other interviews I had already secured both through himself and through another agent in order to give me more choice and make sure I was making the right decision about my career. I hadn’t experienced this attitude from an agent before and felt that David did have my best interests at heart.
Steve BurnettExperienced Senior Finance Professional
Great service from David in a problematic recruitment. He had a keen grasp of the sensitivities and offered insightful advice on how to handle matters, which helped secure a successful outcome. Many thanks.
Harriet PeacockSupply Chain Accountant at Symington’s Ltd
Contacting Dave to discuss my next career move was an excellent choice, from our first meeting to securing a new role, he did a great job listening to my requirements and ensuring I had a thorough understanding of the client, my transferable skills, detailed knowledge of the business and the client I would be meeting/interviewing with. From end to end and a perfect recruitment partner.
