Client testimonials

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

We have always been happy with our past experiences with Sheffield, I have always trusted them and the process was done really well. I would and have already, recommend Sheffield to others and would use them again if I needed to.

Bryan Cadogan, Mayor, Clutha District Council

After going to market we chose Sheffield to lead the appointment process for our Chief Executive Officer as we felt comfortable with Louise. The whole process was seamless with a strong pool of candidates and great communication from the team at Sheffield.

Nigel Bowen, Mayor, Timaru District Council

The process with you has been brilliant - thanks for your support throughout Kate. I really appreciated your direct style of communication and interesting and challenging questions.

Candidate Anonymous

We have previously partnered with Sheffield and been impressed with their service and professionalism. I appreciate Louise’s honesty when working with her and the capability of the Search team works very well. Sheffield is well connected across a variety of industries, and I knew with this being a specialised role, Sheffield would have their fingers on the pulse. This role had tight timeframes that we highlighted from the outset and Sheffield were able to deliver on this.
