Client & Candidate Feedback....

Jane was a super recruitment partner when hiring our recent Head of HR. Highly efficient, Jane worked to a tight timeline and delivered a high calibre HR professional who perfectly matched the requirements of our mandate. Not only this, the culture-fit was spot on!  Jane is naturally easy to deal with and her HR background enabled her to identify our needs throughout the process, steering us through the recruitment of this key hire. We would thoroughly recommend the Trapeze HR team to other business owners looking to hire HR specialist talent - Hugh van Cutsem, Partner, Kepler Partners LLP

Working with Jane & Harriet has been a delight.  They are specialists in their field and once we shared our situation and challenges, they really owned them, working with us collaboratively to solve them.  They were a true partner in the process using their expertise to help us navigate a path to a great outcome - Tim Ham, CEO, Pearson Ham

We’ve recently worked with Jane and Harriet at Trapeze on a key Senior HRBP hire for GAMA Healthcare.  They were highly engaging, thorough & knowledgeable and delved in to our requirements, to ensure they had all the information they needed from the start. Their communication style and efficiency enabled us to achieve a thorough process in a short timeframe.  I would recommend Trapeze to other SME businesses. Harriet & Jane are specialists in their space and great fun to work with - Rob Cook, Chief People Officer, GAMA Healthcare

The support and partnership Harriet provided on our HR Manager hire was crucial to a diverse and thorough hiring process. Working to a tight timeframe, Harriet sourced some excellent and diverse talent and delivered a strong shortlist of high calibre HR professionals. She worked closely with me throughout the hiring process to a successful appointment.  I would recommend Trapeze HR to other businesses seeking the best HR talent in the market and would be very happy to recruit with them again. Suzi Hewes, Head of HR, Film and TV Charity 

Jane and Harriet did an amazing job for our Head of People position. They had a really short timescale, but asked all the right questions to draw on a great network of candidates to find us a shortlist that absolutely nailed the brief. They are also very personable and good fun to work with - not at all "sales-y", just worked with us to solve the problem. I would certainly use Trapeze again for any further HR hires and I highly recommend them to anyone else looking to find the 'right' HR candidate - Cathy Dearson, Head of People & Learning, Inviqa

We cannot thank Trapeze HR enough for their assistance and guidance in placing our first HR Manager in our growing business. They listened to what we needed both now and in the future and also who would best fit our culture and values going forward. They were fast, easy to work with, thorough and put forward the most amazing shortlist of candidates who hit our brief spot on. Every single candidate brought the skillset we wanted and more, so the decision to pick a candidate was very difficult as the quality was so high. We are pleased to say we have now made an offer and the candidate who stood out for us as exceptional has accepted and we are absolutely delighted. Jane and Harriet are a joy to work with and my colleagues and I would recommend them without hesitation. Nigel Moore, CEO, Ross Trustees

Refreshing, Professional, Engaging… just a few words to describe the recent engagement with the Trapeze team. They dispel the myth around recruiters and truly do care… They quickly understood both our tangible and intangible requirements, delivered promptly, and communicated all the way. A true pleasure to work with and will not be the last. I would highly recommend these creative and friendly specialists, Jane and Harriet were spot on. Stuart Salt, Director of Services, Transputec Ltd

Trapeze were fast, friendly and pragmatic - helping us find the short term and longer term HR resources we needed at very short notice. I would certainly recommend them. Alex Pumfrey, CEO, Film & TV Charity

I reached out to Harriet for support on a niche early careers role, and the team at Trapeze were a delight to work with, I would highly recommend them. Not only did they really understand what we were looking for and our culture, they presented a shortlist of fantastic candidates, filling the position in record time. Alexandra Stone, Talent Acquisition Lead, YouGov 

Trapeze HR came highly recommended to me when we started the search for a Talent Acquisition Manager. They lived up to the billing!   Harriet and Jane were super swift off the mark to come to see me, get under the skin of the business and interpret what we really needed. They intuitively and accurately crafted a job description from our conversation before very quickly delivering high quality candidates against the brief. The role was filled in no time.  Go Trapeze!
Tom Stazicker, CEO, Virgin Pure

Trapeze HR really took time to understand the organisation, the role and my working style to thoughtfully present candidates who were technically able, credible and a strong cultural fit. They also did this super quickly and in a fun and engaging way. It was immediately before Christmas and I’m sure they were swamped with other roles but as a client, they created the perception that my role was their priority. They will be my first call for future requirements and I wholeheartedly recommend them to others. Laura Gould, UK Head of HR, Camellia Plc

We retained Trapeze HR to work with us to source our new HR Director in September 2019.  They were consultative and collaborative in their approach and really responsive to our requirements.  Together we quickly fleshed out the brief and the specification for this new role and within 2 weeks they had sourced some very high calibre candidates.  We were very impressed with the candidates they supplied and we have secured a superb HRD who joins us to work in the business 4 days a week in the New Year.  I would thoroughly recommend Trapeze HR to other SME businesses looking to hire senior HR talent – Harriet & Jane work hard, they understand HR and its complexities - you are in very safe hands with them working alongside you. John Colenutt, COO, Genomics

It was a great experience working with Harriet & Jane at Trapeze HR.  Their pragmatic and supportive approach to helping me find a job, was invaluable as I was returning to work after an extended career break.  They offered much needed optimism and practical advice and guidance which guided me towards the right role. Their individual approach to finding the right flexible role means that it is not a one size fits all approach to job hunting and they ‘get’ the need to support diversity in the workforce. Clare Culf, HR Manager, BVCA
