David Atkins – CEO, Hammerson PLC
From the outset Ravi totally committed himself to the culture and values project and quickly gained the trust and respect of the senior team. He is professional and technically strong but in addition he is able to use his strong sensory and people skills to connect with the team and establish quickly their drivers. His style is warm, good humoured and balanced but he doesn’t pull any punches. I have never seen our senior team so engaged in a training programme. Personally I have found him extremely supportive and always willing to offer advice even beyond the bounds of the programme. He is the strongest person in this field that I have come across.
Tamara Page – Head of Diversity, Crowe Horwath International LLP
Ravi is a rare professional that brings a combination of business knowledge and a sense of intuition to his work – a combination which gives him the ability to connect with business leaders in an impressive way. Our C-suite executives have felt able to open up to Ravi, voice their concerns, and be receptive to new ideas – all as a result of his expertise and service orientation.
Fiona Potter – HR Director
I have found Tansel really does stand out from the crowd because of the way he operates. Tansel has supported me as a candidate looking for my next opportunity. He always delivered on what he promised. I never had to chase up feedback or was left hanging not knowing the outcome of an interview. He really took time to get to know me and understand my career history, skills and experiences and what I was looking for. There is no hard sell with Tansel. I genuinely believe he works ethically and to the best interest of his client and candidates and I have no hesitate in recommending his services for senior HR recruitment.
Jan P. de Jonge – Business Psychologist
I saw Marie in action on several occasions, training a group of delegates (including me) in the understanding and use of personality assessment tools. Not only does Marie seem very experienced and knowledgeable in these tools, she also is very personable, holds the room with confidence and enthusiasm and keeps a lovely pace going throughout the course(s). I feel she creates an atmosphere that is conducive to getting the most out of the training sessions for the delegates. For any psychometrics-related CPD, Marie (as part of PCL) comes highly recommended by me.
Justin Phish – Managing Director
Sarah has all the skills, attributes, knowledge, personality and experience that a career coach requires. I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering reaching out to a coach.
Virgin Media – Manager
Andrew was instrumental in supporting my personal growth as both a mentor and later as a coach. His ability to listen and have empathy, allowed me to explore and challenge my thinking on problem-solving issues or challenges I needed to address.
Polly Isaac – Vice President HR
Tansel recently helped to place me in an interesting interim role and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Tansel differentiates himself from other recruiters by demonstrating great integrity, keeping me informed and always calling or providing information as agreed. He has a genuine desire to get to know his candidates and understand the types of role you are looking for. He was creative in negotiating alternative proposals in order to place me in the role and ensure the arrangement worked for both parties. A great recruiter who I fully expect to work with again in the future.
Sally Learoyd – Group HR Director, Hammerson PLC
This was as much about helping the CEO bring about cultural change as well as developing skills. Thanks to Ravi’s guidance and support we have taken huge strides forward in both. Our senior managers now have the confidence to take on the leadership mantle and both the management & Exco teams have developed a real sense of unity and common purpose.
Lauren Brownlow – HR Director – HCML
I connected with Tansel and engaged him exclusively to find my replacement at a private healthcare firm several years ago. Tansel priced the search competitively, regularly provided honest candidate feedback and ultimately placed a qualified candidate under extreme time pressure. We have remained in touch throughout the development of his coaching practice, I’d be delighted to recommend Tansel or work with him again as either an employer or candidate.
Samantha Mckendrick – People Director
Tansel was responsive to the needs of our recruitment requirements at Bupa. He spent time to really understand the culture of the organisation and what type of people we were really looking for. The results so far have been great.
Telecoms – Marketing Director
I worked closely with Andrew when he was assigned to support leadership development within the marketing department as part of a wider organisational development and change programme. He was both insightful and practical in the way he approached the task and also personally very supportive. He’s not afraid to be tough when necessary, whilst remaining fair and personable at the same time. I valued his contribution and enjoyed working with him.
Paul Brereton – Director of HR
Tansel is a very professional and experienced recruiter who is particularly adept in ensuring both his client and his candidate pool are given all the support and information they need during the recruitment process. He also has a strong network from which he can source suitable candidates at very short notice! Tansel is also personable, always available and someone I have enjoyed working with over the last couple of years.
Beth Aarons – HR Director
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Tansel as a recruiter. He followed through at every step of the way in the recruitment process, providing detailed information and feedback. He ensured that regular updates were provided to both parties and that a positive outcome was achieved. I would happily work with him again and hope that I have the pleasure of doing so in the future.
Phil Knight – HR Director – Serco
Tansel is an exceptionally well networked individual, is extremely professional and very tenacious. He has supported me on a number of interim and permanent vacancies, with a 100% record of filling a variety of roles – including some challenging one offs! And often against very short deadlines.
Anthea Besser – HR Director
Tansel has supported a number of senior hires, as well as work on recruitment projects- each time applying a bespoke approach, which is incredibly customer centric. He uses his solid understanding of the healthcare market, as well as his extensive network to get the best outcomes. He is highly intuitive, with emotional intelligence that enables him to understand both the client and the candidate, and develop relationships based on solid trust.
Hilary Pearl – Interim HR Director
Having been an interim for over 6 years, I found all of my work, apart from my very first assignment, directly until I met Tansel. Tansel worked quickly and efficiently, understanding his client and his candidates and matching them well. He keeps in touch during an assignment making sure that both client and candidate are happy. I found him professional and personable and would recommend him to client and candidate alike. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Claire Day – HR Director
I have worked with Tansel over many years now, from my time at Balfour Beatty, which is a testament to his sage advice giving, industry knowledge and ability to deliver. Long may the relationship continue.
Tony Rogers – HR Director
Tansel offers a very personal service. As a candidate, meeting me was important and he stayed in touch throughout my job search. He listened to my needs and approached me with jobs that fitted my skills and experience. He is an excellent example of how a recruiter can add real value to the recruitment process. I will be happy to contract Tansel to recruit for my future HR needs.
James Penny – Learning and Development Manager
Tansel is something of a rarity. Not only is he extremely diligent in his work, very professional and well connected he is also a great communicator, making sure he kept me informed of progress at every stage of the process which is sadly not always the case in my experience of other recruiters.
Hayley Proctor – Interim Resourcing Lead
Tansel has consistently maintained a strong relationship over the years. He is open, honest, focused on successful outcomes and understands his clients requirements and challenges effectively.
Jason Price – Learning and Development Manager
Tansel helped me to secure a dream job. From our very first conversation, Tansel proactively offered support, insights and preparation for each stage of the recruitment process. He promptly followed up all of my meetings with my new employer to find out how I got on as well helping him to hold conversations with the recruiting manager to further support my application.
Tracey Lambert – HR Business Partner
Tansel has helped me on 2 occasions when I’ve been searching for my next career move and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to those looking for their next career search or to recruiters trying to find their next hire.
I have dealt with a number of recruiters over the years whether for my own personal search or hiring into the business I’ve been working in. It is refreshing to find someone who is able to match the person to the organisation and understand both the person and business needs. When working with him recently he was regularly in contact, always followed up promptly and showed a genuine desire to make sure he had done a good job.
Trudy Scarborough – HR Systems Manager
Tansel works hard to ensure that achieves the right person for the job and the right job for the person, understanding the needs of both potential employees and the recruiting company. Tansel is a total professional in his work and appearance. I would have no hesitation in contacting Tansel if I needed to find a new position, or for any recruitment needs that I may have in the future.
Nicola Calladine – HR Director
Tansel is a true professional in his field. Having worked with him recently, I was impressed by his determination to match the right candidate to the right role, often working out of hours and communicating with all parties in a professional, friendly and timely manner to ensure that that the process went as smoothly as possible. Qualities that I value highly. A real delight to work with, Tansel has a warm, personable nature and I would not hesitate in recommending him for recruiting HR professionals in any business.
Debra Baker – Interim Senior HR Manager
I have worked with Tansel for the past few years both as a client and more recently as a candidate. Tansel takes the time to get a good understanding of both the client and the brief and as a result always delivers excellent results.
