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.
SEAN DONKINMANAGING DIRECTOR AT THE INN COLLECTION GROUP
‘ICG appointed Dave Gifford / Gifford & Partners in order to recruit a CFO who would be capable of dealing with an expanding regional business backed by Private Equity. Dave approached this task by researching our business in advance, on a personal basis which was an unexpected but invaluable part of our selection of Gifford & Partners. The time invested early days by Dave allowed a quick understanding of our requirements, of which the correct cultural fit was essential. Dave liaised with my team, as well as our Private Equity investors in order to ensure a best fit for all was achieved. The process with Dave ran to schedule and the quality of personnel put before us was of the correct quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave & his company for anyone seeking to recruit in this area.’
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
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.
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.
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.
