Client testimonials

We partnered with Sheffield to recruit our new Executive Principal because they are second to none at recruitment in the independent school sector. Ian Taylor is the doyen of recruiters in this sector. His experience in the industry and his knowledge of the market and Christ’s College was invaluable during the process. Sheffield’s astute and thoughtful analysis of the candidates was extremely beneficial as the process reached the business end of short list selection and we appreciated the team approach Sheffield adopted. We are extremely grateful to Sheffield in guiding us to such a good outcome for our School.

Hugh Lindo, Board Chair, Christ's College

Andrea and Sheffield were really impressive to work with. Always organised, thinking ahead and understood our needs. Resulted in a great appointment within our very tight timeframes.

Frazer Munro, General Manager, Timaru District Holdings Limited

Sheffield proved to be a great choice for our CEO recruitment. Council felt well supported in attracting high calibre applicants and progressing our preferred candidate through to completing the formal appointment. I felt Louise really understood our person requirements and the unique challenges of recruitment into a small rural council. I think this attention to detail coupled with great recruitment research and insight really built my confidence in the process.

Jamie Cleine, Mayor, Buller District Council

We felt a position at this level required expertise and skills and Sheffield could deliver on this. The process was well structured and Sheffield saved us alot of time through running the process instead of us. For a potentially difficult to fill role, we were very happy with the outcome and Will is exceptional.

Kent Krammer, General Manager NZ, Novus Glass

It’s been a pleasure to partner with Sheffield over the years as we’ve collaborated to build new leadership development programmes and a pipeline of confident, capable leaders able to deliver on our organisational strategy and values. The team has a warm, collegial style and an ability to quickly get to the heart of our needs and tailor their approach accordingly.

Theren Naidoo, Talent and Learning Partner, Livestock Improvement Corporation
