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.
From my initial contact with Seymour John they provided a service which was both very efficient and professional. Emlyn and Mark took the time to fully understand my needs and expectations, taking pride in building a worthwhile relationship through regular contact both on the phone and face to face. As a candidate of Seymour John you feel extremely valued and I would highly recommend them.
IS Griffiths Ltd
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
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.

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
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 already had a strong relationship with Simon as a client so when I decided that it was time for a career move he was the obvious choice for help and guidance… he found the right business, with the right culture and people, in the right location and got me face time… now I am Finance Director of that business. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Simon to anyone in my network.
Finance Director, McAuliffe Group
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.
ACA Compliance Ltd
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.
Inspiring Evolution Consultancy Limited
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
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.
