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.

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!

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
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 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
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.

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.
