Testimonials

I selected David to lead three retained leadership searches at one of the big four. His approach is thoughtful and systematic, he backed this up with deep insight into the functional service lines across Management Consulting and Risk Consulting – in particular Financial Services Risk and Regulatory change topics. David and his team worked tirelessly to provide a solution. They were committed to providing an exceptional outcome and often went the extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend David Young, Andrew Brown and the River Partnership for leadership search or research projects. Recruitment Leader, UK Big four
Helen was excellent. Proactive, responsible and eminently sensible. I would definitely use her again. She was head and shoulders above the other search firms we have used at that level. Chief Strategy Officer - Asia Pacific, Global Asset Management Firm
I was impressed by your deep knowledge of the regulatory consulting market and am comforted that you understand my background as a prudential supervisor Prudential risk leader, Global Consulting Firm
River are the only executive search firm I speak to directly rather than delegate to my team/HR; you provide top class candidates and more importantly you provide good candidate insight at every stage in the process which really helped us to get the individual over the line in such a competitive market Global Insurance firm, Hong Kong
I've worked with River in two capacities: as the target of a search, and as the person commissioning a search for candidates. In both cases Gisèle proved to be excellent and we continue to work with her. Senior Partner, Global Consulting Firm
River and the risk team were fundamental to achieving our 2012 head count plan. MD, Group Risk Methodology, Global Universal Bank
Jamie managed a series of searches up to partner level for our UK consulting business and the SI and outsourcing business. He was always meticulous in his brief taking and was never afraid to challenge ideas or assumptions. Jamie’s candidate network is excellent; he really understands his market, what is happening, why it’s happening and who’s behind it. UK HR, Director Atos Origin
As the UK IT Director responsible for a pan-European change programme I was looking for high-calibre technical talent that could not only develop market-leading technology solutions but think “out-of-the-box” and really make the difference. River identified and filtered the candidates excellently so I was not inundated with CVs - I had quality candidates rather than a quantity of unfiltered CVs to read through. Excellent. IT Director, Global Asset Manager
Deep subject matter knowledge with exceptional client network. Jamie has a track record of delivering innovative recruitment solutions to the global leadership level. MD, UK Life insurance company
