Please find below some testimonials that help convey our values further..
“The quality of the service provided to us by Private & Confidential Search was exceptional. They recruited a key member of our professional team who in a very short time has progressed well within our Company. We attribute this to the fact that they took the time to understand our requirements for the role, know our team and company’s culture and values and was able to utilise her extensive contact list to identify a high quality match for us.
Additionally, they had an excellent understanding of what the candidate’s potential might be before we even met them and was honest with us about the candidate’s expectations for the role advising how they thought they would best fit into the existing structure of our business.
We believe this was critical to ensuring that when the candidate actually started in the role they were able to hit the ground running, both us and the candidate happy and confident that we had made the right decision. As a result, the services provided by Private & Confidential Search have added significant value to our organisation.”

Every aspect of their service was superlative, from the taking and refining of the brief through to managing both sides’ expectations throughout the process.

Client Experience - Director, Boutique HR Search & Selection Company
“Private & Confidential Search recruited me for my current job. Throughout the process, from initial contact about the position to my first couple of weeks working in the role they provided a service that was far beyond anything I would have expected or have ever experienced in the past. Their pre-interview briefings were incredibly thorough and well-informed and it was clear they had invested valuable time on them. As a result I could not have been more prepared for each of the interviews I attended nor for the role once I started. Their understanding of their clients' business and enthusiasm for what they do makes them a pleasure to work with throughout what can be an agonizing process. The attention to detail and the little personal touches that make each person feel valued set them worlds apart from their competitors.”
Candidate experience - Sarah M
“I felt that I was well looked after and satisfied in my current role when P&C Search identified me as a potential match for their client and I received the headhunt approach from Andrea. Like most people, I always bounced headhunt calls but Andrea presented me with a role that offered excellent scope and a genuine opportunity to take my career forward. P&C’s knowledge of the client, their briefing and screening and ability to fairly and honestly represent the role in question were excellent. From our initial meeting I felt Andrea tested and challenged my experience in order to ensure my suitability and I felt well prepared for all meetings, received thorough feedback and eventually secured the role. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrea and P&C Search.”
