“Will invested the time to develop a thorough and balanced understanding of our priorities, our business and our culture, all of which positioned him ideally not only to find the right candidates for us but also to present the opportunity to them in a clear, compelling and comprehensive way. The other aspect that Will handles really well is relationship: both with me, in terms of keeping in touch and up to date with my priorities and the status of candidates; but also with candidates, during the process and post recruitment in order to ensure that they integrate and develop successfully… On that basis I have no hesitation in recommending him and his firm.”

James Baird, Former Senior Client Partner, Deloitte

“William has been instrumental on my professional journey over the last 3 years and I can fully recommend his services. The overall experience has been excellent backed by a thorough understanding of the strategy consulting market, especially in financial services and insurance. Compared to experiences with larger search firms, Will’s approach proved to be better balanced and more effective, whilst leveraging his reach in the European strategy area.”

Dr. Christine Csibi,  Director, Deloitte

“Will helped me make the next move in my career and he was incredible! Attentive to my expectations and certainly confusions. Considering I have never had to change a job before I was absolutely new to the process and Will was wonderful to stand by me as I went through the emotions. Even when I thought of going off to a place where he may not have gotten his fee, he was honest in his opinion and recommendations. In such an emotional and life changing decision, Will was the trusted friend, bringing his experience being a great listener, facilitator between both parties and a Coach. Great Job! and looking forward to have you around again!”

Emel Can, Partner, Deloitte

They demonstrate ability to get an excellent knowledge of a given market segment or sector as well as understand the client culture.

Head of Finance and Risk France, Global Strategy Consulting Firm

“Given the high calibre we set in terms of our external recruits, we value those recruitment consultants who have a good understanding of our needs. Exige have shown in their work for us that they have this understanding, they provide a very good “first screen”, and the candidates that they present to us are therefore of a generally very high standard. Perhaps as importantly, they have been able to identify candidates whom we have found difficult to access through other search firms. All in all, we are very happy with the high quality and responsive service that we get from Exige, and are lucky to have them as one of the firms we use.”
