Client testimonials

Sheffield has a reputation for a high quality approach to executive search, not only in terms of their well organised plan, but the genuine effort and follow through in implementing that plan and keeping their client well informed. Taituara wanted to take a specific and careful approach to the recruitment of our new CEO and Sheffield’s approach was well suited to this. The extra bonus is that Sheffield Director Wellington Katy Antequil and her colleague Nicholas Buck are a joy to work with.

Barbara McKerrow, Wellington Representative, Taituara

The New Zealand Brain Research Institute is grateful for your recent assistance in recruiting and placing directors for our Board. We were very pleased with the thorough and seamless process that you followed which resulted in two excellent directors joining us, in full alignment with our brief. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Richard Sudell, Chair, NZ Brain Research Institute

Sheffield's previous reputation led me to using them again. The whole process flowed well from the initial brief and I would highly recommend Sheffield, and Mike Stenhouse or Jane Pollitt to anyone without hesitation.

Colin Weatherall, Acting Chair, Central South Island Fish and Game

Sheffield has the knowledge, trust and expertise. The communication was clear and I had complete trust that the process would go well.

Luis Arevalo, Catholic Social Services Manager, Catholic Diocese of Christchurch

Sheffield know the market well and run a robust process. Jane was very professional, took away the pain of recruitment and I was pleased with how the whole process was run.

Grant McKenzie, Chief Executive, Allied Press

Katy and Nick identified and brought forward a very good selection of candidates, with a good mix of capabilities and strengths. This provided a lot of choice for us in the recruitment process. We found that Sheffield provided timely and sound advice throughout the process. I would definitely use Sheffield again.

Mike Hargreaves, DCE - Strategy and Insights, Worksafe NZ

We partnered with Sheffield due to their extensive experience in recruiting senior positions within the local government sector. I would have no hesitation recommending Sheffield. They were very professional, provided great communication and the whole process was seamless.

Mayor Kirsten Wise, Napier City Council

I recently had the pleasure of working with Louise, Kelly and the team at Sheffield to recruit our new Manager – Science & Technology. Having experienced a recruitment process with Sheffield as a candidate myself, I was confident that the team would provide a service that was both professional and thorough. Sheffield were communicative throughout the process, ensuring we were kept up to date on progress. We were really impressed with the calibre of candidates, and were fully supported throughout the interview and selection process.

Abby Matthews, Director - Environment Quality, Taranaki Regional Council

Mike and the team at Sheffield provided a fantastic service. There was a really robust process that resulted in some great applicants for us to consider....and are very happy with the outcome.

Will Doughty, Chief Executive Officer, Kaikoura District Council

A thorough recruitment process was very well planned and executed, provided a broad range of applicants for selection and a comprehensive candidate review analysis for board consideration. This was managed on a tight deadline over the Christmas/New Year period and culminated in a successful appointment. I would highly recommend Sheffield.

Kerry Wells, Chair, United Flowers Growers Limited
