Is yours a great a place to work?
In today’s challenging climate, where the only certainty is change, successful organisations are eschewing rigid, top-down hierarchies that inhibit innovation for flexible structures that are more agile and commercially creative.
Is everyone heading in the same direction?
We specialise in big picture organisational development, working with leaders to turn their strategic vision into transformative reality. Simplifying the complexity, we take a whole-systems approach that helps you see how everything fits together, aligning strategy, structure, processes and people towards the same objectives.
Culture is key
Developing the right values and behaviours, at every level, ensures you are not just talking the talk. In a competitive market where attracting and retaining the right people is a challenge, we help create cultures where everyone can be successful, where everyone brings their best self to work, where everyone is an advocate. In short, we help develop organisations people want to work for.
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 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
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 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.
Risk Assurance Manager, Lloyds Banking Group
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 worked with Seymour John for a year on a contract in Cardiff. They were regularly proactive in their contact, with some lovely touches such as bottles of wine or a meal out. It truly does feel like they value you as a contractor. Emlyn, Mark and Louisa are definitely people I would trust and recommend, which is very rare in their line of business.

Lee has been a great help in orchestrating my latest career move. He’s provided appropriate leads and has talked me through each step of the process, ensuring I was well briefed and confident for interview. He has gone out of his way to ensure that all my queries were answered and provided honest advice. I’d highly recommend Lee as a recruitment consultant.
