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.
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.

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.

On a personal level I have not come across a recruiter who has worked at relationships with candidates and clients as much as Phil Topper. If I am asked for a referral Phil’s name will without doubt be top of the list.
Mike Attwood ACMA
Having dealt with more established and well known financial services recruiters this kind of service is pretty unheard of…I am more than happy to endorse the work that they are trying to do and look forward to continuing our relationship together.
SPM Consulting and Management Ltd
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.

As a candidate I found that all the team at Seymour John offer a very professional, efficient and personable service. They arranged an interview promptly and remained in contact and gave support throughout my contract. I would have no hesitation in working with them again.
Costello Contracting Ltd
Darren was recommended to me by a previous client I had completed some work for whilst working in consultancy, always a good sign. After a lengthy chat, which did not feel rushed or a roll out of the usual questions, he found out why I wanted to leave my current role, seemed to fully understand the reasons behind this and grasped the type of role and direction I was looking for. The result being a great interview with a great company and eventually a great job offer which I hope will be the start of the next stage of my career. Seymour John has the personal touch I was looking for which is difficult to find these days and the level of communication was outstanding.
Risk & Regulatory Manager, RAC
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
I received a very professional service with great communication throughout the process. Darren Richards took the time to get to know me and what I wanted from my next job. I would definitely recommend using Seymour John.
Internal Auditor, Ecclesiastical Insurance Group
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.
