Lynne has successfully helped place me in a position as a Fund Accountant within a global Real Estate Investment Manager commencing in August 2013. This is my first role out of practice and I had a particular niche industry and role that I wanted to pursue.
When I first engaged contact with Lynne through to successful placement in this job, Lynne was prompt in her response and always devoted a significant amount of time inside and outside of the normal working week to answer any questions I had about the job specification and role with great detail.
Lynne’s knowledge and many years of experience with the industry, company and others placed in the same team, was very impressive and I could therefore place trust in the recommendations and advice that Lynne gave to me.
Lynne has been an excellent professional who is reliable and will personally ensure that you are given the relevant detail to the job you are applying for so that you can achieve successful results.
I couldn’t recommend Lynne highly enough to anyone looking for a new venture.
— Chris Dowdall, Audit Senior at PKF Littlejohn

Lynne is a role model to how recruitment agents should be, she provided the best service I can ask for, always in contact and was always there to take my call and give me advice. Lynne is very much on the ball with things and does get things done straight away. All I can say is if you want things to be done GO TO LYNNE!. Its been a pleasure Lynne. — Adeel Hussain, Legal Cashier at Norton Rose Group

I found Lynne as a one of the best recruiter so far due to her very professional and caring approach towards her candidates and clients!!
During the recruitment process she kept me well informed at all stages and provided me with all the support needed for the interview and useful information about the employer. Usually, once you start the role, you would hardly hear from the consultant. However, Lynne was very good in this area too and was in regular touch with me to offer me any assistance needed until I was settled in the role.
I feel very please to recommend Lynne as an excellent head-hunter!!
— Karim Gilani, CGA, ACCA, Senior Financial Analyst

I found Lynne to be very professional, and she kept me in the loop at each stage of the process. — Andrew Quinn, CFA, Senior Performance Analyst at AXA Investment Managers

Lynne has worked with me both as a client to source candidates as well as having identified great opportunities for me in the market place at senior levels. Her depth of expertise within the recruitment field across a number of sectors and countries is second to none. Her work has always been carried out with a tremendous amount of integrity, professionalism and above all her great personality. These qualities encapsulate her ability to work effectively for both clients and candidates. In summary, a rare breed of headhunters whom I would recommend time after time. — Kosh Wagjiani, Managing Director at K2 Advisory Services

Lynne has been one of the most professional HR recruiter I have personally encountered. In uncertain economic conditions, finding a job is difficult, however, Lynne not only provided me a good insight into the prospective job role but also advised on how to give a successful interview.
Appreciate all the hard work Lynne.
— Joel Marques, Product Development Associate

Lynne has been a brilliant recruiter for me in London. Always honest, and hard working to get the placement I required. This in a world of bullsh*t recruiters. I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone looking for work in and around London, and I wish that more recruiters held the same high standards of integrity that Lynne displays. — Jesse Koorey-Slow, Financial Professional Trading Broking Dealing

At a time when I found myself desperately disappointed and frustrated by the level of service provided by today’s recruitment consultants Lynne has shown herself to be a breath of fresh air. Always polite, always friendly and prepared to see the bigger picture. Throughout the entire process leading up to receiving my employment offer, Lynne provided excellent levels or support and guidance and made sure I was as prepared as I could be for all interviews.
If I am ever asked to recommend a consultant, Lynne’s name will be the first on the list. I cannot speak highly enough.
— Mark Pease, Global Middle Office Supervisor at Vanguard Asset Management, Limited

Lynne has been the most professional and experienced recruiter I have worked with. I received excellent interview preparation, constructive feedback and advice at each stage which gave me every opportunity and advantage to secure my ideal role. She stayed in regular contact, keeping me updated at all times. Lynne’s honesty and integrity are impeccable and I would highly recommend her. — Andrew Chandra-Rajan, Fund Analyst at AXA Investment Managers

I would just like to say thank you for helping me find the perfect position with an extremely reputable company. From the offset you have been extremely helpful and your professionalism, efficiency and ability to understand a persons needs are superior. You have always kept me well informed and it was very reassuring to have regular contact and feedback. I would be more than happy to refer you to anyone looking for employment in the future. — Paul Diffey, Head of UK Asset Servicing Control at AXA Investment Managers

I have known Lynne Hargreaves for nearly 20 years and she brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to senior financial recruitment.
One of Lynne’s strengths is the ability to identify and most importantly match, the key criteria when recruiting for a client or indeed representing a candidate with their career goals.
Her extensive market knowledge allows her to help and advise her clients / candidates in all aspects of the recruitment cycle, thereby avoiding unnecessary problems. This contributes to a cost effective and prompt solution for all parties. I am very happy to take this opportunity to recommend her services to you.
— Nigel Carpenter, Owner, NSC Consulting

I was first introduced to Lynne as a candidate and was immediately very impressed by her attention to detail. Lynne strived hard to match my needs as a candidate to her clients. Although unsuccessful in securing me a position, from the numerous interviews she was able to secure, she demonstrated her attention in listening to what candidates AND clients wanted. It was this attention to listening and searching that drove me back to Lynne when I was at ebookers and wanted to revamp the finance function there. Lynne delivered numerous high calibre candidates consistently for each (very different) position we wanted to recruit for and really excelled on that project. Due to the calibre, decisions were often tough.
Final outcome: 8 out of 11 positions within Finance over an 15 month period were filled by Lynne’s candidate! Excellent calibre of candidates with an excellent fit to the business! If you are thinking of giving Lynne a go, think no more – do it!
— Muhsin (Mos) Somji, Chartered Accountant and Operations Director

An EXCEPTIONAL person with specialist recruitment and HR skills who actually studies your CV/Profile thoroughly before approaching you. Highly professional and approachable, and an excellent leader in the finance recruitment field. Guides and coaches you personally. “Knows her stuff” and willing to part with information and knowledge in order to secure the best opportunity for you. I have been lucky to have her on my side and know I can trust and rely on her completely. I will work with her again and no doubt introduce her to candidates and organisations that are looking for a thorough PROFESSIONAL in her field of expertise.
Lynne thank you for making my life so easy.
— Jyoti V., Financial Analysis

A couple of months ago a friend of mine came up with a literally “mission: impossible” sort of idea to get me in a very well known German company owned by a UK based Private Equity firm. True to the proverb “Everybody is but five phone calls away from the President of the USA.” I had Lynne on the phone after the second call. We immediately got on like a house on fire and – believe it or not: She made “mission: impossible” possible! I met the COO of the PE and got into the German company as well. – As a result, I have formed a trusted business relationship with Lynne and would highly recommend her as a highly professional Search & Selection Consultant. — Robert Kocsis, General manager at DUROPACK-STRARPACK Kft
