“Giles has recently placed me in my role as Head of Marketing. His advice and quality of service made what can be a stressful process very easy. He best understood the sort of role I was actually after and found positions that no-one else put forward. I would not hesitate to use Giles again in the future”.
Scott Evans, Head of Marketing at Savills Investment Management
“I have worked with Leighton Taylor as a candidate and a recruiter and have always found them to be responsive, consultative, and really good at listening to my needs. I had a long list of quite specific requirements when I began looking for my current role and they really listened and came up with suggestions that showed they understood that I was looking for. They made the process really smooth and easy and I couldn’t be happier in my new role!”
Tamsin Porter, Director of Client Marketing & Communications, Frontier Economics
“I have looked for two roles in the UK (15 years apart) and Giles has helped me to find them both. Giles has extensive experience of the industry and is most helpful in identifying suitable opportunities as well as providing support and guidance through the interview process. I would highly recommend Leighton Taylor looking for roles within the sector.”
Megan Khan, Interim Head of Marketing and BD, Hogan Lovells
“I was recently appointed Director of Business Development at the College of Estate Management. Leighton Taylor handled the recruitment on behalf of the College. I dealt with Colette Norfolk and Giles Taylor and found their approach very professional from initial contact all the way through to the conclusion of the process. Working as a team, they gave me helpful advice on the College’s requirements and kept me informed at each stage”.
Stephen Bartle, Director of Business Development, College of Estate Management
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Giles and the Leighton Taylor team for around 5 years. Whether I have been recruiting for top talent whilst at leading global law firms or supporting my own professional development, Giles has time and again proved to be proactive, engaged and someone who thinks outside the box in terms of finding the right fit for both employer and candidate.”
Giles has facilitated two of my most significant career moves – most recently to Director at a top tier global management consultancy. His guidance throughout the recruitment process, hands on approach and knowledge of his client and the professional services industry has proved invaluable. Working Giles and the Leighton Taylor team guarantees you access to experienced and professional consultants who value quality and approach the recruitment process with integrity”.
