‘Progress is impossible without change’ George Bernard Shaw
Whether streamlining and restructuring, expansion into new markets, the deployment of new technologies, the roll out of a new service, whatever the change, to implement it successfully a cultural shift needs to take place; a shift in the hearts, minds and therefore behaviours of your people. This is where HR must take the lead.
The scale of the project is often irrelevant; it’s the employee experience that matters. We work with your people to implement initiatives that:
- Engage and empower them in the process
- Enable understanding of the necessity and benefits
- Change cultures and behaviours
We work with you to identify skills-gaps and, where appropriate, put in place the necessary training and resourcing to address them. Most importantly, we partner with the primary drivers of change in any organisation, your leaders, offering insight and objectivity to bring clarity, even to the most complex of transformation agendas.
Seymour John were absolutely great, always there to help with anything I needed and gave me great support in the whole process. This really is a people person firm. I found a really great role that I am enjoying enormously and they have continued to support me to this point. If you are in search of a new role then this is a firm that will really get to know you as a candidate and find the role that you are looking for. They go above and beyond which you really come to appreciate.

Having Seymour John represent me was a smooth transition in finding me a placement and I felt highly valued throughout the whole process from start to end. Should the need arise again, I’d have every confidence to use them again.

The team at Seymour John are extremely personable and efficient. In negotiating contract work for me they have shown excellent negotiating skills with the client and have been very flexible and adaptable. A recruiting agent that I would be happy to recommend to anyone, particularly those linked with the internal audit and risk industry, where they have demonstrated an in depth knowledge and practical experience.

I have been talking to Darren Richards at Seymour John for several months, exploring the audit and risk market. Darren is a pleasure to deal with, always helpful and he was careful to select only those roles that were the best fit for my skills and experience. Darren was easy to talk to and kept in touch without prompting, something many other recruitment firms have not done. I have now managed to secure a superb role in Internal Audit thanks in no small part to the efforts of Darren Richards. I would recommend Darren and Seymour John unreservedly, a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.

Phil’s professionalism and integrity sets the bar among recruiters, he really renewed my faith!… I’ll definitely be in touch when I am recruiting myself.

Recruitment at its best.
John and his team recently placed me in my perfect role, and I have to say their recruitment process is the best I’ve come across. They took so much time to understand what I was looking for and to ultimately ensure the role I was placed in was a perfect fit.
As an employer, I wouldn’t use any other agency now I’ve been through their process as a candidate. They do so much of the work the employer usually would, saving you precious time, but more importantly giving you peace of mind you’re employing the right person. I look forward to working with them more in the future and highly recommend them to both candidates and employers.
Assistant Director of Finance, Gloucester City Homes
I was approached by Darren Richards at Seymour John about a career opportunity, and from the start found his take on things friendly and professional, and not at all pushy like some recruiters. I was kept regularly informed about the application process and what was going on, and Darren was always available to answer any questions that I had. I got the impression that there was a real desire to find the right person for the right job, and not just fill a vacancy, and I was fortunate to benefit from Darren’s wealth of experience in the Risk arena in making a really important career decision.
Capital Modelling and Risk Analytics, Lloyds Banking Group
Phil is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. He delivers a first class service, does exactly what he says he will and is completely honest with you. I would recommend him to anyone.
Finance Director, Summit Systems Ltd
I first contacted Jordan back in 2013 and he secured me interim work. I found him to be extremely professional, approachable and unlike many other recruiters at the time he truly understood my skills and requirements. He was always willing to help and assist. I now find myself in a permanent managerial role where I am required to carry out recruitment on a regular basis. I therefore had no hesitation in immediately contacting Jordan as I knew I would receive excellent customer service and he would find me the right level of candidate, which of course he has always done.
Senior Manager Finance Operations, Secure Trust Bank
On a personal level I have not come across a recruiter who has worked at relationships with candidates and clients as much as Phil Topper. If I am asked for a referral Phil’s name will without doubt be top of the list.
