Over the past two decades, clients of The Perseus Partnership have provided the following quotations on the company’s work:-
- “The Perseus Partnership provided best-in-class service. They were unequalled in terms of constructing the assignment brief, candidate research and client feedback, both in terms of candidates for interview and also highly useful insights into the specific search market, plus reward and recognition packages likely to attract the best. In ten years, I have not found another executive search firm to better Perseus.”
Managing Director – High technology manufacturing company
- “What makes working with Perseus different? Having used large executive search firms before, I found the approach of Perseus refreshingly different. Taking every assignment in person, taking immense pains to understand the firm’s culture and needs, and doing all the work themselves with very regular and full liaison, provided a level of service that has not been matched by other executive search consultancies. Their personalities are such that working with them is a real pleasure!”
HR Director - Global engineering, consulting and construction company
- “Many of the senior candidates we have seen- both those selected and those not- have specifically commented on the quality of Perseus' work. They have told us that Perseus have been able to give well informed and high quality responses to their questions about our company (including on technical matters), have subjected them to a rigorous interview process but at the same time have treated them consistently with courtesy and consideration. Candidates have contrasted this very favourably with their experience of other head-hunters and told us it influenced their view of our company.Perseus’ commitment to customer service is second to none. From the taking of the brief through to the follow up post induction of a successful candidate not a single detail is missed. Whatever their other commitments, Perseus make you feel you are their only customer. Every follow up call comes before you expect it, every question you have is answered and Perseus always ensure you can reach them, including out of normal working hours.
The single best thing about working with Perseus is that your contact is always with a Partner and not with a researcher or other assistant. This saves time and undoubtedly helps the quality of the selection.
One of Perseus' great strengths is their ability to get to know a company in depth - in our case a complex high technology organisation - and to use that knowledge to identify the very best match of candidate and post. The Perseus selection process is probably the most rigorous I have encountered.”
HR Director - High technology company
- “I have worked with The Perseus Partnership for 10 years. They have successfully searched for, and found for me, a wide range of senior staff. These have ranged from Corporate Development, Legal, Customer Services and Commercial Director roles to tricky specialist technical appointments in both the engineering and scientific sectors. Perseus differentiate themselves by providing a personal and highly structured service. I have no hesitation in recommending them and will continue to use them myself.”
Group Chief Executive – Utility plc
- “The most striking feature of the approach undertaken by Perseus was the research which they carried out into the role which I was seeking to fill. The brief for the role, which I had developed, was thoroughly tested, and the existing management team interviewed to assess compatibility. This background work was the significant factor in securing the right person for the job.”
Managing Director – Environmental services
- “Perseus adopted a very thorough approach to briefing at the start of each assignment. This paid dividends in terms of saving time at interview, ensuring that candidates really did meet the requirements. I would continue to recommend The Perseus Partnership for executive search because I know that high standards would be applied to the task. No other search consultancy gave me the confidence that the individuals carrying out the assignment would work to such a standard.”
Group Director of Personnel - Utility plc
- “I have worked with Perseus over a number of years and in two businesses. What are some of the key words I would use to describe my experience of the Perseus approach to filling our critical senior vacancies?:- Thorough; Professional; Focussed; Expert. I have always received timely information, and advice, and always personally delivered from one, or both, of the two principals. You feel like the success of each and every assignment (and I mean long term success for our business) is as important to Perseus as it is to us.”
Director of Personnel - National standards organisation
- “I have worked with The Perseus Partnership on a number of assignments for senior managers for technical business areas. I have been most impressed with their rapid understanding of the requirements of the roles and the business drivers and environment surrounding the posts. The quality of the shortlists were excellent, giving a good choice of candidates. The attention to detail, including regular and effective communication, by the Perseus team was particularly good throughout the assignments. I have been very pleased with the professional and efficient approach of Perseus, and the results.”
Chief Executive - Research & testing consultancy
- “I have worked with The Perseus Partnership on a number of occasions over the last five years. They have successfully identified strong individuals including Managing Director and Commercial Director roles. Perseus have the ability to understand the business needs and environment and, via an excellent screening process, recommend individuals who “fit the bill”. I am happy to recommend them.”
Chief Operating Officer - Global utility company
- “I have known The Perseus Partnership for a number of years and have consistently been impressed with the thorough, professional manner in which they conduct business. Their ability to truly partner with Companies to deliver high quality solutions has enabled them to be one of the most proactive teams in the business. And they are really inspiring to work with !”
HR Director, EMEA - Software security
- “Perseus’s pro-active approach ensured that we maintained the urgency of the appointment against all the other issues that we were dealing with at the time. Your understanding of our needs and culture were first class.”
Managing Director - Environmental testing consultancy
- "We have worked very closely with The Perseus Partnership over an 18 month period on all of our most senior recruitment assignments. In this time, we have found them to work extremely effectively in understanding our senior resourcing needs and then attracting very high quality candidates to the business. The level of professionalism and service has been excellent, together with a strong results focus, resulting in the best candidates joining the business."
HR Director - Construction services & PFI
- "In my dealings with The Perseus Partnership, I have been very impressed with the level of professionalism, robustness and attention to detail. This has covered the comprehensive understanding of my need together with the assessment of shortlisted candidates and finally in securing the right talent to join my business. My own experiences of working with this team have been both as a candidate and subsequently as a client of their services. I find their experience in the executive search business, spanning varying industry sectors over many years, enables them to constructively challenge my own requirements and more appropriately align what I need, with how best to source that senior level talent from the marketplace. I will continue to work with The Perseus Partnership for future needs and am happy to recommend the same to others."
Managing Director - UK Management Systems business
- "The Perseus Partnership is a cut above many of the search professionals with whom I have worked or been approached. Perseus' brief is always prepared in detail, the task handled personally and with a very clear understanding of the business challenges which have driven the recruitment need. With Perseus, the process is not industrialised or farmed out to "juniors". In the 10 years or more that I have worked with Perseus, they have looked well beyond the normal range of candidates on every search and have always found a shortlist of excellent candidates. The candidates we have chosen have always turned out to be a good organisational fit; they have stayed, performed and added considerable value. I have no hesitation in recommending Perseus."
Group Commercial Director - Global PFI/PPP Contractors
- "I have worked with The Perseus Partnership for some ten plus years both as a candidate and as a client. Perseus always approach assignments in a personal, knowledgeable and friendly manner. They have an exemplary track record for matching the client company's culture and needs to the most suitable candidate in a highly involved and interactive manner. The quality, commitment and professionalism of Perseus's service is second to none and they are now viewed by ourselves as a very important part of our recruitment and selection strategy."
Executive Vice President - Global Testing, Inspection & Certification business
- "Having dealt with many of the UK's leading executive search companies, the performance of The Perseus Partnership is head and shoulders above the rest. They are a company that demonstrates all that is best about dealing with a small organisation. The extremely thorough research and selection process provides an invaluable insight into the character and capabilities of potential candidates. The care and attention during the often delicate final stages of recruitment cannot be faulted and there is always follow up with both client and candidate after the appointment."
Senior Vice President - Global Design company
- "Perseus provides a very professional service. They gave me the most thorough pre-assignment interview I have ever experienced. This does two things, it makes you, as client, think hard about what you are really looking for; and it creates a sense of the care and attention to detail that Perseus will bring to an assignment. Sure enough, we found the right candidates and I was able to make appointments with a feeling of confidence that I would be employing the best available."
