Derek Ward

I have worked with many Recruitment professionals, yet when it comes to sourcing top quality management Derek has always responded with a level of professionalism and insight that I have generally found lacking in other search firms.

Derek makes it his priority to wholly understand my business, its commercial imperatives as well as the cultural environment, and uses that knowledge to seek out great candidates.

I believe that Derek’s many successful years in challenging senior management roles, prior to his involvement in Search, have provided him with an unusually high level of insight and empathy that have resulted in many well matched long – term appointments for my business.

Andrew Hobman

My experience of working with Andrew is that he is a very diligent recruitment professional. We gave Andrew an assignment to locate half a dozen specialist transformation roles to support an urgent need. Andrew located a healthy volume of potential candidates and we conducted the selection process and ended up with very good appointments.

I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to either Client or Candidate as I think what makes Andrew different to other recruiters is that he takes time to listen to what the client wants. He then stays on that message and doesn’t try to make marginal candidates fit. The speed and candidate quality provided by Andrew and his team has been impressive.

Steven Cooper | Transformation and Programme Leader

Andrew Hobman

Andrew Hobman and the team at Brunswick have supported us in recruiting for a range of leadership and specialist roles in a number of European countries. They take the time to understand our requirements thoroughly and we have been consistently impressed with the depth and quality of the short lists they have presented to us. Unlike many Executive Search firms they also demonstrate significant flexibility in working with us to identify potential recruits when we have not yet finally settled on our plans. They are a great partner for us and have delivered real value for money to our business.
