Wellers Chartered Accountants

“Thank you for all your hard work and more importantly for pulling out all the stops in placing a Financial Controller for our well known client. Not only did your expertise help to source the top two candidates for interview but you did this in a very short timeframe. I know giving up your own weekend in the process.

The way that you question to get to the real crux of the requirements, the understanding you gain and your success in sourcing and placing just the right candidates speak for themselves.  It is this interest in the business and its wider business goals which set you apart from other recruiters.

Our client was so impressed I know they have gone on to ask you to source another member of the management team. Once again a big thank you Sally and Hudson Clarke Associates.”

"Sally is unique among the recruiters with whom I have worked. I had and have the pleasure to work with Sally both as a job seeker and now as a client. She successfully holds both the interest of the company and that of the candidate in her mind at all times. The result is the right candidate for the right job. Even more importantly, Sally is extremely professional, honest and passionate about her work. Even when a placement has successfully been made, she will call you from time to time to ensure that all is going well and that you are satisfied with her candidate.

Sally is always striving to serve her client in the most effective manner possible. Sally is very conscientious and very protective of the confidences entrusted to her. Many times I have had discussions with her at night or on weekends, as my travel schedule prevented calls during regular business hours. Each time, she handled the conversation in a patient and very helpful and caring manner. I heartily recommend Sally as a recruiter on behalf of a company or as an advocate for a job seeker. "

Williams Holden Cooklin Gibbins LLP

“Sally Collins managed to find the ideal candidate for the job. This candidate fitted our brief precisely and, in fact, exceeded our expectations. She had a great ‘pedigree’ and had worked in some of the magic circle firms. She was ‘streets ahead’ of the other people who we interviewed and we hired her immediately.

Hudson Clarke Associates did a really first class job, in a very limited period of time. I would not hesitate to use them again.”

Brewin Dolphin

“I can thoroughly recommend the services of Sally Collins and her firm, Hudson Clarke Associates.

I approached Sally Collins to recruit a new member of my team, specifically an experienced secretary who could also fulfil an important client administration role. Sally looked at a large number of suitable candidates for us, and carefully filtered the field down to two people whom she sent forward for interview, being both highly qualified technically and of an appropriate personal style and character which was well matched to me and my existing team. Sally had clearly ‘gone the extra mile’ on my behalf, and I would have no hesitation in using her services again should the need arise.”

Goldcrest Architects

“I have nothing but praise for the professionalism and attention to detail demonstrated by Sally Collins of Hudson Clarke Associates when seeking candidates for the role of Senior Design Architect on our behalf.

As an in house architects practice to a property developer we require a very specific kind of architectural professional. It is vital to a small practice to get the right type of candidates the first time around. I have worked with a number of agencies over the years and have quite frankly dreaded the process. I will have no such qualms in the future. Working with Hudson Clarke ensured our requirements were clearly interpreted. The candidates we were presented with were well vetted and proved an excellent fit both in terms of attitude and experience.

I have no hesitation in recommending Hudson Clarke Associates to anyone seeking to recruit high quality professionals.”
