‘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.
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.
Managing Director, BOBria Solutions Ltd
Simon placed me into my first contractor role. He has provided me with professional advice from the beginning to the end, including contract negotiation, necessary insurance and other logistics. As a client, I can say that Simon demonstrated that he goes an EXTRA MILE to ensure the candidates are well supported. Being a contractor, who is coming from the long permanent career it is important to receive mentoring and coaching. Simon has offered just that. In addition, the back office of Seymour John is seamless!

I established a great working relationship with the team from the outset. They maintain the right level of contact and provide clear guidance when required. A very friendly firm who I am extremely pleased to have developed a great working relationship with.
Senior Compliance Manager
Phil has both an extensive detailed knowledge of businesses in the local area and a large contact base. However what I really like about Phil is that he is very personable and works so very hard to secure you the opportunity that is right for you. He takes the time to get to know you and then maintains regular contact with updates and potential opportunities. He has an excellent communication style with prospective employees and you know you are in very capable hands as he sells your skill set. I can honestly say that he is the best recruitment agent I have worked with and am very pleased to say that his efforts secured me my new role where I am very happy. Thank you Phil.
Director of Finance and Information, Severn Hospice
I would like to recommend Phil Topper to anyone looking for the best possible advice, support and guidance when facing any career decision. His detailed understanding of not just what I wanted for my career, but also what I needed for my work/life balance was very refreshing and exactly what I was looking for. Phil helped me make the best career decision possible for me, and I would call on his expertise again in the future without any hesitation.

Over the course of my career I have had involvement with lots of recruiters, and Lee always comes out on top. Unlike many others, Lee really listens and develops an understanding of who you are and what you want from your next career step. His support, knowledge and advice, as I juggled with different opportunities, was so helpful. I would fully recommend Lee and Seymour John!

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.

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.
ReAssure, FP&A Accountant
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.
