What our clients and candidates say

Moments of greatness

Working with STOIX has been great. They took the time to understand the very different roles within our business and recommended different solutions as appropriate.

STOIX are clearly long-term relationship builders, demonstrated by the post-placement follow-ups among many other things.

Greg Matthew, CFO of PE-Backed Retailer, PRS & Samsung, Greater London

STOIX really listened to our requirements, which enabled them to produce a very high-quality pipeline of candidates. I would see interviews on their platform with only the highest-quality, assessed candidates that were interested in the role.

They understood our challenges, were conscious of my time and provided a higher quality service compared to other Search Partners.

Alexander Johnstone, Group CFO at Signa Sports United, Berlin

STOIX worked hard to understand deeply the person specification before launching into the search. Their video-enabled search process and strong candidate analytics helped fast-track us to a strong and diverse long list and they supported us with our selection decisions every step of the way.

STOIX gave all candidates a very positive experience and represented HWM exactly as we would have wanted them to. We’ve been able to find our perfect candidate, who has accepted our offer.

Anita Calverley, HR Director at HWM (Halma operating company), Wales

We were highly impressed with STOIX from the beginning to the end of the process. They offered a consultative and collaborative experience, challenging our thinking but also listening closely and supporting our needs.

Their knowledge of the market is second to none. The process was smooth and efficient, and the offer management stage was conducted professionally and crisply to ensure the desired outcome in a competitive market.

Richard Steele, ex MindGym Plc CFO (currently at Skillcast Plc), London

I’ve worked with STOIX twice now on senior roles for my team and am delighted to say they’ve placed top-calibre individuals for both. The guys have extensive knowledge of the finance world, so they fully grasped the background and profile I wanted but also threw in some candidates outside of the typical profile to challenge my way of thinking.

Despite some initial push back one of them turned out to be the final candidate selected, whom I would never have met without their guidance.

Ryan Collett, CFO at Causaly, London

STOIX immediately sought to understand my career requirements and align those with the opportunity being presented. All of this was done with a lot of positive energy and enthusiasm, which was very encouraging.

I was provided with a well-informed and transparent process as well as a clear and continuous feedback loop, which allowed me to optimise my approach and confidently focus on my goals and requirements.

Tim Hawkins, CFO at HWM (Halma Operating Company), Wales

My experience with STOIX was on the candidate side, they make you feel quite at ease, so it is easy to be your authentic self which then allows you to go into more detailed discussions, rather than a technical checklist which is more a traditional approach.

No hesitation in recommending STOIX as they provide a great service and a seamless recruiting process.

Amber Cooper, Chief Accounting Officer at Signa Sports United, Berlin

From previous experience, recruitment and interview processes have usually been a daunting step. Having a well-prepared recruiter on your side however makes that process significantly less overwhelming.

STOIX’s support throughout the Halma recruitment process did exactly that. The pre-recorded screening interview to go alongside a written CV, was not only innovative (from my experience) but also allowed me to present myself in a way that no written CV could communicate.

Rebecca Carter, Finance Director at SSG (Halma Operating Company), West Midlands

This was my first job interview process in a number of years and whilst I found it challenging I really enjoyed working with Rory. He made the effort to get to know me as an individual rather than as just another candidate and he provided regular status updates over the three month or so period.

He also invited me to back to work events being hosted by STOIX which provided opportunities for me to enhance my network. I would not hesitate to recommend Rory to other candidates searching for their next career opportunity.

Sarah Cox, Group Financial Controller at Skanska, London

I met Rory during the early days of STOIX. I was immediately struck by his and Neil’s genuine interest in my career trajectory and outlook on their industry and mine.

I’m delighted to see STOIX go from strength to strength, however, given my first impression I am not surprised. Rory is professional, thoughtful and talented – a great partner to any business or prospective job seeker.

Mary Corrie, CFO at JustPark

I have hired multiple interim contractors via Reece who, in many cases, have been so impressive we’ve kept them as permanent employees. Reece doesn’t bombard you with profiles, he probes us, asks questions, and refines the requirements.

His attention to detail and speed of working means STOIX is always the first (and often only) firm I pick the phone up to when looking for resource in our business.

Rob Wall, Director of Group Finance & Transformation (Dentsu International), London 

We engaged STOIX to assist with an interim project role. I was really impressed with Reece and the speed of the process, particularly with the candidate videos as opposed to just CV’s. This definitely led to a more efficient selection process and allowed us to have a more meaningful first round interview with the shortlist of candidates.

We look forward to working with STOIX again in the future.

Michael Gilmartin, Finance Transformation Director (Dentsu International), London

Rory made my recruitment experience far more valuable than I expected. He was approachable with excellent communication and feedback at every stage.

Unlike most recruiters he went beyond normal preparations for interviews and provided real insight and coaching that was very useful and, in my experience, provided a successful outcome.

Gillian Ingham, Divisional Finance Director (Skanska), London
