Competitive advantage starts at the top: Securing the leadership talent pipeline for sustained growth and profitability
Today’s operating climate is complex and challenging, which means, more so than ever, it is about the survival of the fittest. In such a world, evolution is imperative. The future belongs to the organisations that can do more with less and that have the flexibility to adapt to the ever-shifting social, political and economic conditions. They are the ones that possess the dynamic, visionary CEOs, directors and senior management teams with the strategic talent and creativity to successfully navigate inevitable change.
A systematic, holistic approach to leadership attraction, retention and development
In a market where exceptional leaders give you the competitive edge, competition for their talent is fierce. It is employees not employers who hold all the aces. As such, the attraction, development and retention of executive talent has become a business-critical issue. As a specialist, search and selection consultancy, we have built up extensive networks of leadership talent. And because these demanding roles require such unique skill-sets, we also have the value-added option of delving into a deep pool of ‘passive’ talent to find the exact fit.
Ours is an integrated, systematic approach that offers so much more than pin-point search and selection. Whether it is through assessment and profiling, coaching and mentoring, development and education, on-boarding or succession planning, our strategic HR consultancy team work closely with you to secure the talent pipeline to meet your business-growth agenda.

Unlike many recruiters I have come across, Lee was relaxed, friendly and always had time to talk through things. He really listened to what I wanted, and very quickly lined up interviews, which lead me to a job that far exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t have been happier with the way he handled everything. He made life very easy for me!

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.

Seymour John are a refreshing change from other recruitment agencies. They value their Consultants, treat them as individuals, pay promptly, give guidance on administrative issues quickly and throughout the term of the contract they are in regular contact to discuss the progress of the project. I particularly enjoyed working with Emlyn John with his upbeat humour and regular contact which has meant I have felt fully supported in the assignment. I look forward to working with Seymour John again at sometime in the very near future.

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.

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.

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!
Denso UK, Financial Controller
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
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.
