The senior and executive HR talent you need to drive cultural transformation

Creating cultures where people thrive
In a competitive market where the talent pool is shrinking, the need for the best commercially astute HR talent is pressing. You need leaders who can create a culture where your people thrive. In an increasingly transparent, digital world, they are your best advocates. The organisations that people queue up to work for are the ones where employees feel valued, engaged, nurtured and developed. The best HR leaders will help you do all of this, enabling you to attract the people you need.

Talent for the public sector
The challenges of the public sector are well documented. With rising demand for services and decreasing budgets, leaders are under relentless pressure to do more with less. And, with often inflexible salary bands, attracting the best talent against stiff competition from the private sector can be difficult. Organisations must transform. As such, HR has an important role to play.
The need to become more commercially innovative means that many organisations are turning to the private sector for inspiration. With access to a wealth of senior executives (across the private as well as public and not-for-profit-sector networks) of the whole Seymour John group, our dedicated OJEU framework awarded public-sector team are uniquely well placed to help support you in what are becoming increasingly difficult roles to fill.

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!

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.

Accounts Manager, Heywoods Chartered Accountants
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.
