Sandra did an incredible job in helping me work out what was the best move for me moving forward in my career and supported me in working out the best way in obtaining a new job which including networking and contacting companies directly. I particularly appreciated Sandra’s direct approach, deep understanding of executive search and the comprehensive guidance I received.
My company worked closely with Sandra for over 7 years, she always took a detailed, professional, caring and personal approach to often complex high level HR issues. Her exceptional strengths are experienced in her ability to handle all of our companies HR matters with care, warmth and diplomacy, yet being able to keep us strategically focused and on track. Her absolute dedication and commitment to excellence in all areas of Recruitment and HR Consulting is outstanding. Sandra’s skills, professionalism, astuteness and personalised care has been invaluable to our company’s growth especially during the initial stages of our business.
I found Sandra’s approach to professional matters both calming and engaging which in this type of work is an essential quality. Sandra was able to understand the issues and the emotions that are associated with leading a high level Executive role, this is a rare occurrence. She bridges the cultural domain and adds value through an understanding of the cultural issues that help influence and drive thinking and behaviour. She brings this to bear on the strategic elements that need to be addressed and worked on as part of the solution and provides the necessary motivation and insight that is required.
Since starting my own business Sandra has been a sounding board regarding my business requirements, structure and what talent I will need to fulfill my vision. Her grasp of business fundamentals and how those translate into the capability I need to surround myself with has been invaluable in this start up. I met Sandra when she conducted my initial interview in a previous role. As a first impression she was exemplary and extremely memorable. Her insight into my character, talents and challenges was much more than I had been used to or have experienced since. Her style was warm and challenging at the same time; she clearly was not a run-of-the-mill HR consultant and did not treat me as a run-of-the-mill candidate, I look forward to continuing my professional partnership with Sandra, both on my business and with 3rd party/ clients as well.
Sandra is one of those rare individuals who takes the time to really understand her clients and their needs. She asks the right questions to get to the real issues involved and then develops creative and effective strategies to deliver results. Over the past 10+ years Sandra has worked with me on numerous recruitment assignments – always finding not only the right technical fit but most importantly the right cultural fit.
