Simon Geere, Associate Director - Human Resources, Procurement & Compliance Divisions
"As a corporate HR person used to large, national and international organisations, I was quite nervous of joining an SME in the often-misunderstood world of recruitment consultancy. I needn’t have been worried. Joining a division in its infancy, I’ve progressed over nearly 13 years to running 4 key business areas, and now have a far greater understanding of commerciality within the business world. Alexander Lloyd gave me the training and support to build a successful, respected and specialist brand in the field of Human Resources Recruitment."
Tom Martin, Divisional Manager - Pensions & Benefits and Compliance & Risk Recruitment
"I currently head up two teams, totaling 5 Recruitment Consultants; overseeing their day-to-day performance and ensuring their continuous professional development through regular training and coaching, whilst also looking at new business opportunities and adding regular input into our evolving marketing strategies."
I have generated and am consistently maintaining a high-calibre candidate pool through LinkedIn Networking, Mining, Advertising, Referrals and Executive Search.
Aaron was very professional, friendly and kept me up-to-date at all times. Aaron met me in person after my interview which was a lovely personal touch. I have worked with Alexander Lloyd in the past and always found them to be a professional recruitment firm and Aaron personally a great recruitment consultant. Thanks Aaron for pairing me up with Vested Digital, I am really enjoying working for Vested.
"Richard was really helpful in helping me find a new career opportunity and getting me in front of the right potential employers. He kept me well informed as I moved through the selection process and was quick to respond when I needed assistance or had queries. I would definitely use Richard's services again and have no hesitation in recommending him."
Aaron and Alexander Lloyd provided me with a great service and helped me find a new role which I am really enjoying. They were very professional and I would definitely recommend them.
Out of the many recruitment agencies I have registered with, there are probably no more than three or four that I would consider attentive, friendly and professional in helping me to find a new position. I was referred to Alexander Lloyd, and I would place them at the head of that list and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
I’ve had a professional relationship with Simon for longer than I care to remember and can honestly say he is an exceptional recruiter. No flannel and a genuine desire to place candidates into roles that are truly right for them. Last year I found myself searching for a new role after 14 years of service with my previous company. The process was exciting but daunting. Simon provided great support and advice over a six-month period for which I am really grateful. I really would recommend going to him for all of your recruitment need
[My consultant] provided a very professional and courteous service. This commenced with obtaining a clear understanding of the role to be filled and required candidate profile; forwarding of suitable candidates only and good support to both candidates and recruiter during and post-offer stage of the recruitment process. Overall, an excellent service.
Simon is an excellent recruiter, his approach simplifies the recruitment process and adds significant value to both candidates and employers. I got the role I was looking for and I owe him for his patience, availability, enthusiasm and guidance throughout the recruitment process. I highly recommend Simon as a recruiter!
Very professional and relationship driven. Great client and candidate experience.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Simon Geere at Alexander Lloyd. He took the time to meet with me personally at the very start of the process and really listened to what I was saying. He had a very hands-on approach to all the appointments, and had clearly built up a good rapport with candidates. All of the candidates presented to me were first class, and had a good understanding about our firm and our requirements from Simon. It really was a great experience, and I would definitely return to them for our HR recruitment.
I would use Alexander Lloyd again because of the quality, their understanding of our requirements, and their management of expectation in relation to the role.
Alexander Lloyd have always been helpful in assisting me with my recruitment needs.
Alexander Lloyd have a great track record in providing us with suitable candidates when we require them, good customer service and a solid understanding of our business needs. We would definitely recommend them!
Alexander Lloyd provided us with a comprehensive range of candidates from which we were able to select the right person for the role. Their prompt and responsive approach to our recruitment needs helped make the entire process efficient and effective.
They took the trouble to meet with me to discuss our requirements in detail and gave us access to candidates with London market experience.
They get the people that others do not.
They select the right candidate for the right job with good efficient customer service
My consultant is helpful, cheerful and efficient. He understands our staff preferences and supplies good quality candidates
Thank you for providing an excellent candidate who had the relevant experience for the position so that we did not need to trawl through other applicants who were less well qualified or suited to the position.
"Thank you for your help with my job search this year. You have been very professional and understanding of my circumstances and this made my job search a very positive experience. I have been advised of opportunities relevant to my experience and provided with valuable interview advice. You have been very supportive throughout the whole process and I felt that you worked to my best interest."
“The Alexander Lloyd team have been a treat, they go above and beyond to help their clients and candidates, which makes the recruitment process a whole lot smoother. The consultants were fantastic as they would give me interview tips and keep me updated on the market; giving me assurance and most importantly preparing me for an interview. I would recommend Alexander Lloyd team to anyone looking for jobs as they are probably the best in the market.”
"Georgina is an excellent and astute recruitment consultant. She understands my core skills and has always recommended or got me the right job. She is an excellent listener and always conducts herself with a high degree of professionalism. She can build excellent rapport and sustain a healthy working relationship. I can honestly say, the best recruitment consultant I have ever known. Thank you Georgina, you are a wonderful person."
Liam delivered a fast and efficient service. He took the time to understand my background and skills beyond just my previous work experience. He immediately found me a job that I was suited to and that would develop my career. I would recommend Liam to anyone looking for a role.
Ben has been very professional and supportive during my selection process. I was pleased with the level of service I received from the first phone call from Ben to discuss my application, to the call in which he congratulated me with securing a new position. I would certainly recommend Ben as a great recruiter.
David Larkins - Technical Consultant at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co I have always used Alexander Lloyd for job searches and they are very helpful, know their stuff and not pushy! Richard in particular is great and understands personal needs and which companies best suit my abilities and where there is the potential for me to progress. Richard is very knowledgeable in the financial services recruitment industry and has a great reputation. I would always recommend the company and in particular Richard when assisting friends and family for jobs. Richard takes the time and care needed when looking for jobs for others. Knowing that their is a incentive can sometimes be daunting when making a career (and lifestyle change) but Richard will always only place peoples for jobs he knows they are best suited. Richard and I have kept in touch throughout the years and he will certainly be someone I turn to first if I ever need career support again. For those that are looking for a role - I would 100% suggest speaking with the Alexander LLoyd team and in particular Richard Dodgson.
I found Richard extremely proactive, friendly and supportive during my application process. I felt able to speak openly to Richard about any concerns and he was always happy to help.
"I can only thank Tom and Richard Dodgson for all the hard work they have put in for me over the past 6 months. They are the the only two recruiters who would regularly get in contact with me to ask how my job search was going, and ultimately found me the ideal role that I have been searching for. Pensions Consultant candidate"
Late last year Tom helped me find my current role and did so with my interests in mind throughout. My wife has been contacted by a lot of recruiters over the last few years, all of which seem to prioritise their aims over anyone else and do so with very little care. My experience with Tom was exactly as it should be. He helped me find the ideal job based on the work I do and the skills/experience I have, as well as securing a great benefits package (it’s, mainly, why we go to work after all). Anyway I’ll just finish off by saying that Tom was a pleasure to work with and I’d recommend him to anyone looking to make a change in their career.
I’ve really enjoyed my first week in my new role. The work seems varied and challenging and my colleagues have all been really welcoming and helpful. I think I’ll be really happy working there and will hopefully progress in my career. Thanks again for all your help in getting the job opportunity, your help and advice before my interviews was invaluable.
"Ben filled an Accounts Payable Administrator position twice for us at AJW. The first occasion, Ben sent a CV over, we interviewed the candidate the next day and offered her straight away. The second time we were given an extensive shortlist that were all great candidates. Ben remained professional through the process, and most importantly he was always honest. Ben is an excellent recruiter, and there is no doubt that we will use Ben again. "
‘I’ve been working with Richard recently. He is a calm, experienced, knowledgeable and personable, supportive recruitment consultant. Richard very much puts you at your ease, and helps you realise what direction you want to move in, what your realistic options are, and then he helps you to successfully implement them. I would highly recommend working with Richard. And he’s a lovely guy as well!’
‘I have dealt with Richard in an interview process and he went above and beyond to stay in contact, ensuring a smooth and professional manner throughout. You have exceeded my expectations in dealing with a recruiter and that has been greatly appreciated. Thank you ever so much. Wish you and everyone at Alexander Lloyd all the best’
"I was very impressed with the speed and efficiency with which Zuleika met my recruitment requirements. She presented CVs that were 'spot on' and kept both me and my candidates promptly informed throughout the process. Our ideal candidate was found and recruited swiftly and I'd highly recommend Zuleika at talent acquisition!"
"Ben is a thoughtful person, he listen's to your requirements for work and links them to job's he has available. Twice I have been for interviews he has arranged and got the job. He stay's in contact with you throughout job seeking, interview and in your first few weeks in your new role. Highly recommend him as consultant to find you the job and salary you want."
“From a candidate perspective, I found Zuleika to be both professional and courteous. Returning to work after a career break, Zuleika made the process seamless and efficient, acting in the interests of myself as well as my employer as the client.”
‘Olivia has been one of the best recruiters I have dealt with. Olivia is enthusiastic about what she does and made the time at every step of the process to talk me through the next steps and followed up with me after I had started my position. Olivia genuinely listened to my career aspirations and matched me with a company that I could develop with and that also allowed me to add value to the organisation at the same time. I would not hesitate to approach Olivia in the future if I needed to look for a new role.’
Alexander Lloyd made the effort to come and see me in person, and talked me through each CV to give a clear picture of candidates. I also felt there was an attention to detail in understanding our role that meant the quality of candidates identified was good. I wouldn’t hesitate to give them a call next time a role comes up
Very efficient and are more than able to support my recruitment and business growth requirements.
Very professional staff who understand our job requirements and the type of candidates that we are looking for.
We had a period of uncertainty regarding our budgets and requirements. Alexander Lloyd remained patient and understanding to this and to our subsequent requirement changes.
My experience was good working with the consultant for my HR recruitment. He listened to what I wanted, didn’t waste my time with inappropriate CVs and followed up on the process in a very timely manner.
I have found both [my consultants] to be efficient and focused in their approach to placing me in an HR role. They initially met with me to establish my skill set and no doubt my character too, and continued to maintain contact with me during the short time it took to secure a placement. They discussed with me only job vacancies that matched my competencies which helped me target the appropriate employer. I will use them again both for personal and professional use, they have outstripped the competition at every level.
I was very happy with the quality of service provided.
I am writing simply to register my thanks to one of your Consultants for the manner in which he assisted our organisation, Mission Care, in placing an HR Manager recently. It was quite a difficult placement (with a G.O.R. applying to the role), and I was impressed with both the consultants professionalism and ability to deliver a good result. We would be keen to use your organisation again in the future should the need arise.
I have used Alexander Lloyd at 2 separate organisations to resource senior HR generalists, and on both occasions I was impressed by their approach to the assignments. On each occasion, a Consultant came for a full briefing of the role, and to understand the cultural nuances of the organisations in question. Following this, the shortlists were presented quickly and clearly, with candidates strengths and weaknesses highlighted to me. I found the end to end process painless, and was very happy with the quality of candidates presented, and subsequent hires. I would definitely recommend Alexander Lloyd for any Human Resources search requirements in the South East.
We have been pleased to work with Alexander Lloyd on a number of occasions and have always found them to be incisive, helpful and professional. Recently we had two hard-to-fill senior HR roles but-with expert help from Alexander Lloyd we filled both very promptly with excellent candidates.
Brakes used Alexander Lloyd to recruit a Regional Trainer. It was a positive experience, and they sent relevant, high calibre candidates in a timely manner. One of which has recently been promoted and has suited our business extremely well. They gave us a thorough service from start to placement and have intermittently called to see how things have gone. I wouldn't hesitate in using them again in the future.
We have used the services of Alexander Lloyd for a number of years to assist us in the recruitment of permanent and temporary Human Resources personnel. These have ranged from Senior HR Directors to Training and Recruitment Managers and Assistants. We have always found the quality of service provided by them in brief taking through to the placement of chosen candidates, professional and efficient. Their selection of the candidates has met the brief as close as possible and the consultants have managed the assignments efficiently and effectively. We are happy to continue to use the consultancy service of Alexander Lloyd in our requirements and have no hesitation in recommending them to other potential client companies looking for this type of Human Resources consultancy service.
I judge an agency on two things - responsiveness and suitability of candidates. On both counts, Alexander Lloyd came up trumps.
Would say that as an agency you provide an excellent service and only put the best candidates forward for the role in a very quick time. You have a great understanding of our business and we’ve recruited a number of your candidates over the past couple of years.
Was very pleased with the service that we received from Alexander Lloyd. The candidate CVs were focused to the roles that we had advertised and where a suitable candidate was not identified, we were not flooded with unsuitable alternatives. Once candidates for interview were identified, you provided me with a good service in terms of organising the interviews and providing feedback from and to the candidates. Ultimately, we sourced a good candidate from you to fill one of our vacancies, who is doing a good job for us, and we came close to securing another good candidate. As a consequence, I would be very happy to use Alexander Lloyd again for our future recruitment needs.
Over the past three years, the Alexander Lloyd team have done an exceptional job in learning our business, understanding our HR needs, and providing qualified and referenced HR candidates for any open positions we have in the team. Because of their in depth knowledge and understanding of our business, the strategic nature of our HR service delivery, and our individual team member requirements, we can expedite the recruitment process by quickly honing in on talented HR professionals who match our unique requirements and will thrive in our organisation. Our partnership with Alexander Lloyd has been exceptional and provided tremendous value.
I had used Alexander Lloyd as a candidate and valued the support and approach of the people there. When I had some recruitment needs for my team I turned to them and have been really impressed with both the quality of candidates and how seamless everything has been.
I have used the services of Alexander Lloyd on numerous occasions over the past 10 years. Their knowledge, experience and their professional nature has produced a good, honest and productive working relationship that ensured that we only received candidates that were suitable for our roles.
We have been working with Alexander Lloyd for two years now, and the level of service that we receive has consistently been of the highest calibre. They take the time out to understand our company culture and core values. The level of professionalism is outstanding, but always delivered with a very personal touch. Alexander Lloyd want a good deal, for their clients and candidates. It is for these reasons that we have built a lasting business relationship, and long may it continue.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the opportunities you put me forward for and the regular contact you had with me. I would have no hesitation in speaking with you if the need should ever arise again. I can assure you; compared to other agencies you have been brilliant. I will definitely keep your agency in mind if there are any opportunities that arise within the company, and if there are any vacancies that require filling. HR Assistant
The personal contact we have with the consultant is important. They will always respond to any requests in a very timely and efficient manner.
Very keen to understand requirements and to push candidates through quickly. Very good ongoing service to both Hewitt and candidates.
Very friendly and helpful. I am not pestered, I like the fact I only have one point of contact on my account.
They provide me with sought after, rare candidates and the consultants are very professional.
We approached Alexander Lloyd to find us a Compliance Manager for a small short term lending business in Bicester. We were provided with several CVs, which were all within the specification that we had requested, and interviewed some candidates - all of whom were described on CV and by AL's [Alexander Lloyd's] staff if terms of personality, aptitude etc. We ended up appointing someone who our business has described as the 'best hire we've had this year'.
“My experience with Alexander Lloyd has been nothing short of superb. The care, support and genuine interest in what I was looking for was apparent from the first meeting with them and has been first class throughout. The consultants were professional, pro-active and thorough when dealing with any prospective role. Out of the 4 recruitment agencies I was registered with, Alexander Lloyd were a clear winner in every area. I am very grateful for their help. Thank you! These are very genuine words and I thank each one of you for your work, support and advice throughout my time with you.”
“Fantastic! Always willing to listen and talk about things; the best recruitment adviser I have dealt with over the years and Alexander Lloyd are a good company too. Tom is available to talk and if he is not around, he always calls back. He is polite and very knowledgeable of his clients and of the people he is trying to recruit for the roles. He doesn't seem to get the matches for jobs/interviews wrong. His colleagues are also very helpful when I have dealt with them. I always recommend Tom to anyone I know looking for a pensions job as I know he will be able to help; he has got me two of my last three jobs, and the other one I got myself. Top top service!” Senior Pensions Administrator
"When my career wasn't going as well as I hoped, I turned to Tom Martin at Alexander Lloyd who found and helped me secure a new job. I am so pleased I spoke to Tom back in February as my first day today was fantastic. Thank you Tom Martin."
Ben is by far the best recruitment consultant I've ever met. I was lucky enough Ben contacted me inquiring my current role and if I was interested in the new challenges and opportunity. He was supportive, professional and he maintained regular contact and gave advises through the process which helped me get a very exciting new role. I would highly recommend Ben, should you be searching for a new role!
Listened to my needs and wants for my ideal job and within a week was interviewed and hired! Great customer service, friendly and efficient. Have already recommended to friends!
I worked with Tom for many months whilst I was job hunting. He is always cheerful, has a good network of contacts and was able to put me in the running for a range of senior roles. He is one of the best recruiters I have worked with and I have no hesitation in recommending him. If you are looking for a move, spend a few minutes on the phone to Tom - you won't regret it.
Laura Darwen - Pensions Administrator and Subject Matter Expert I found Richard extremely proactive, friendly and supportive during my application process. I felt able to speak openly to Richard about any concerns and he was always happy to help.
Liam was brilliant in lining me up for a new role - gave me all the information I required for the interviews, helped me understand more about the role and the company and - most importantly - was always available for a chat. Liam made it clear where we were at every step along the way, which was a great help. Would definitely recommend to others!
Olivia, I think you know that I have always been very impressed by the quietly effective way you go about your business. In a very unassuming way, you seem to have a really good reach for compliance roles across the financial services industry. That entitles you to give valid and helpful career advice even to someone at my stage of life/career which I am grateful for. For all these reasons, I was very happy putting my colleague in touch with you, and once again you did not disappoint. So thank you from both of us.
Hello Richard & Ben, I have received very positive feedback from our HR Department of the high quality CV’s that you are sending through and in particular, how you are matching candidates closely to our requirements and location. The effort you are putting in, is really appreciated. Thank you both very much.
"Please pass on my thank to all of the staff who have been very helpful throughout the whole process. Chloe, Tom and Sarah have been particularly helpful, efficient and always very cheerful whenever I have spoken to them. I can tell you as a client that makes all the difference! I have to say that out of all of the recruitment companies I have had dealings with Alexander Lloyd has been by far the best. Every member of staff I have spoken to on the phone has been very friendly, polite, helpful and efficient. Even when the recruitment process took longer than expected the staff at Alexander Lloyd always kept me informed and answered my emails and phone calls very promptly. In particular I was impressed by the fact that they actually took the time to listen to what I was looking for and what was most important to me in my next role. I have had many frustrating conversations with recruiters who do not listen and give you the hard sell. Alexander Lloyd is not that kind of recruiter. I can honestly recommend Alexander Lloyd to anyone looking for a new position."
"Richard recently helped me obtain a good role with a highly regarded company. During the process we had a significant amount of correspondence and he was always available to discuss the progress. He was very helpful throughout the whole recruitment and on-boarding process and has continued to be in contact since I started the role to check on my progress."
"Richard was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and even beyond placement. His frequent updates meant I was always kept in the loop with proceedings. I would highly recommend."
"Ben was amazing from start to finish, he contacted me with a role I wouldn't have found on my own. He also sent me interview techniques which really helped me achieve my current role, he phoned me after the interview and gave me positive feedback. He also has told me he will be contacting me frequently to make sure I have settled into my new career. If you are looking for a professional gentleman who will help you progress Ben is the consultant for you."
"I was a bit apprehensive about going back into the employment market after having decided to change jobs, then Katy came along. Katy provided me with a good understanding of what the market is like and what to expect - by the end of our first chat, I think Katy understood what I wanted better than I did - which made me feel at ease. Katy is clearly very professional and immaculate in her work and I felt at all times that I was fully briefed about the role. I have managed to secure an amazing role thanks to her and I would recommend Katy to anyone who is looking for a no-nonsense, down to earth, friendly professional recruiter who can understand your worth and successfully relay that to her clients."
"I was recommended to reach out to Katy for employment opportunities by colleagues; what a recommendation that was!! Katy is honest, intelligent and a consummate professional. She is true to her words and delivers. I highly recommend her to anyone... client or candidate."
“I have worked with Katy on two occasions, both times she has provided relevant candidates under time pressure, leading to two successful hires. Katy listens carefully to the brief and is honest about the strengths/weaknesses of proposed candidates. She manages candidates well resulting in timely outcomes.”
‘It was a pleasure working with Olivia recently when I was looking for a new role within Compliance. I found her to be very efficient when communicating with me and diligent in relation to sending me job specs and subsequently putting me forward for roles that were in line with my requirements. I would highly recommend making contact with Olivia if you are seeking a new role within Compliance.’
"Aaron was a great help across the whole recruitment process and kept me informed every step of the way. He seemed genuinely interested in finding the right position for me, rather than just suggesting anything available. A real asset to the company. Keep up the hard work."
Richard helped me to secure my current position at Quattro Pensions based In Redditch. Throughout the process he was very friendly, helpful and professional, was very timely with providing me feedback from my interview and confirming when I was successful. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a new job.
What sets Alexander Lloyd apart from the other recruitment companies is their understanding of the clients business and recruitment needs. Alexander Lloyd takes the time to learn about the client and operate a policy of sending only quality candidates that meet the brief. Alexander Lloyd put the relationship at the forefront of the services that they offer and as a result this differentiates them from the rest.
I asked Alexander Lloyd to assist with a recruitment assignment for a key financial role in our organisation. Up until my call to AL, I had been working from our PSL with a very well respected and well known Financial Recruitment Agency; unfortunately they had not been able to produce a good list of potential candidates. Time was not on our side and we needed to fill the position. I was impressed with the response and professional approach I received from AL. The Consultant came to see me the same afternoon that I called in order to go through a specification and he commenced work straight away. Considering I only gave him a week to source the candidates for interview, he turned a short list around for me exceptionally quickly and exactly to the brief that I asked. He had interviewed all the candidates prior to sending and was able to supply a full and comprehensive history to me. He remained in contact throughout and presented accurate and timely information. We could have appointed two of the candidates to the role and the consultant assisted in the negotiations to secure our preferred choice. I was impressed with the efficient, professional service provided by AL and they are now my number 1 choice for Financial Recruitment.
They build strong relationships and take time to get to know their clients and their candidates
My consultant offered a professional approach and I feel she made great efforts to understand my and our business needs. The profiles of the candidates offered were of a good standard in comparison to the job description. Alexander Lloyd were responsive and listened to my feedback and didn’t do the hard sell unnecessarily if I had doubts or rejected a candidate that I deemed unsuitable. Overall, Alexander Lloyd offers a smooth recruitment experience with a professional and open approach.
"My experience working with Alexander Lloyd has been very positive. You listened to the challenges I had at my previous role and found me a great job with a company that could not have been more opposite. You kept in regular contact during my probation to make sure I was still liking the job and there were no issues. I would certainly recommend Alexander Lloyd to friends and colleagues who were looking for a new role."
The level of candidates that was offered was a good standard in terms of job requirements. They were always quick to respond, listened to my comments and there was not too much pressure if I was unsure or rejected a candidate.
"Alexander Lloyd have a great track record in providing us with suitable candidates when we require them, good customer service and a solid understanding of our business needs. We would definitely recommend them!"
They save me time. They understand the requirements and identify the most able candidates.
Professional approach, we have spent time with the consultants so they understand our business.
I know that I can rely on Alexander Lloyd to fill a vacancy!
I’ve worked with Alexander Lloyd for a number of years, both when hiring HR team members and also as a candidate. They get to know both parties really well so that when sourcing, they instinctively know if both parties will meet the other’s expectations. Alexander Lloyd are open and honest, which works for me, as I know exactly what to expect and it also gives me an indication of the compromises I might need to make.
We very rarely use agencies; however the Consultant has always been very pleasant and not pushy, so if the need arose I would happily use her.
I would use Alexander Lloyd again because of their professional approach, expertise and quality of candidates.
Thank you very much indeed for all your support during my lengthy job search. Alexander Lloyd was far and away the best agency in terms of regular contact, sensible role suggestions, response to queries, etc, so I'll be recommending you to anyone I know who's on the market.

I have confidence in Alexander Lloyd to manage any vacancy which falls within their specialist areas of recruitment and would have no hesitation in recommending Alexander Lloyd to others who are looking for a very professional recruitment team.
I have always found the HR Division extremely professional. They actively listen, are quick to respond and are always friendly with a nothing is too much trouble attitude.

Our Account Manager has a good understanding of our requirements and is commercially focused, and partners closely with the business to ensure that we recruit the best people.
Over the last year we have worked with Alexander Lloyd whilst looking to fill a number of senior HR posts within our team. The Consultant took the time to visit our offices and understand our requirements and the culture of our business. The candidates they shortlisted fitted the brief and they kept in touch throughout the process. I would definitely use Alexander Lloyd for our senior HR recruitment again.
Alexander Lloyd said they could find us a good candidate for an HR role. And they did. Job done.
We have had good service from Alexander Lloyd for several years. I have always had a quick response in generating applicants for short and longer term casework. The calibre of those we have taken on has been good and I would have no qualms about recommending this Agency to others for their HR needs.
During the years that I have worked with Alexander Lloyd, I have found them to be a very responsive, delivery focused and detail conscious recruitment specialist that act with pace, accuracy and most of all, manage the expectations of my organisation. The quality of candidates that they provide is always high and is tailored to suit the specific requirements we have; giving me a range of individuals that could suit us, taking on board our culture, structure, remuneration and job specific requirement. Working with the consultants, Alexander Lloyd are always friendly, engaging and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations.
We have worked with Alexander Lloyd on a number of occasions and my consultant understood our requirements, were quick to react and supplied an excellent selection of candidates that fitted our criteria.

All staff I have had contact with work hard to ensure that only quality, job specific and relevant CVs are passed through for review-the applicants selected for interview are all of a high standard.
Alexander Lloyd are truly excellent at partnering with their clients; listening carefully to the brief and only sending candidates who are a close fit. It made my job so much easier to know that - almost like working with an extension of my own team!
Very helpful and provided good quality candidates
Always helpful and they are proactive in finding the right candidate

You listened to the challenges I had at my previous role and found me a great job with a company that could not have been more opposite.You kept in regular contact during my probation to make sure I was still liking the job and there were no issues.I would certainly recommend Alexander Lloyd to friends and colleagues who were looking for a new role."
Ben offered invaluable advice about interview preparation and technique, answered any questions pre and post-interview, and kept in frequent contact to assist with any queries or concerns I may have. Overall, Ben was extremely helpful and approachable, and additionally found me a position with a well-established company in which I have now been offered a more diverse and higher paid role than expected. I cannot praise Ben enough, and would highly recommend using Ben and Alexander Lloyd to anyone looking for a career in Finance or any other sector
"Georgina helped me change my dream into reality! She listened and delivered: I had a very specific outline of what I wanted and was presented with many roles that fit my criteria. Georgina has a an extensive client list as I can see she has built a good rapport with them- she was always the first to present and acted on very short time scales. I would not hesitate to recommend her and represent me again, thank you Georgina! "
It was a pleasure working with Matt when we were looking to recruit a new Head of HR into the business. Together with his director, Simon, Matt spent the time to really understand the culture and approach of our firm as well as the role the candidate would be filling. During the assignment Matt was very responsive and straight-forward. He acted with integrity throughout, and I would recommend him highly.
"Ben took the time to get to know the company and what I was looking for in my new staff members before searching for staff that he thought would fit in with the company culture, as well as being able to do the job.
