Eyzon consulting consists of highly experienced consultants who offer a refreshing level of service in the often transactional world of recruitment. Their consultants are knowledgeable, well networked and possess the ability to provide valuable insight and market trends – especially helpful in buoyant hiring times. Eyzon provide quality shortlists, ensure candidates are prepared for interviews and manage all communications seamlessly.
I engaged with both Matt and Alister in order to find a new role. Both were friendly, engaging and reassuringly honest; giving feedback on suitability for role, CV presentation and, unlike most recruiters, honesty about what they were working on. In the end I accepted another role but the communication I had with Eyzon means they will be my first port of call for my next role. They personify how recruitment and head-hunting should be done. I really hope that some time in the (distant!) future I get to work with you both again!
Sarah delivered and exceeded expectations when recently filling two positions in my team. Not only did she find suitable candidates she found ones that could work together, which is not always an easy task. Sarah is great at building a working relationship prior to the direct need for roles, which helped her gain a true understanding of the organisation and future needs. This helped tremendously in execution when I was ready to recruit. Her knowledge of the industry is excellent; she has a commercial approach whilst demonstrating high levels of client care and patience; fast to deliver; and generates an open and honest communication channel. I look forward to working with her in the future.
I was introduced to Matt Brooks several years ago by a colleague when I was Group HR Director for Aspen Insurance. I was looking for a senior compensation professional at the time. Matt proved to be an excellent recruitment partner. He understands HR, he understands the market, he knows the candidates and being thoughtful and intelligent he gets to understand you as the client. More importantly he is an authentic and decent person in a world where authenticity and decency is occasionally in short supply.
Danielle is an extremely professional and talented recruiter at Eyzon. She has a unique capability to identify the top talent and attract them towards the best possible career opportunities. With her warm and friendly personality she is always keen to assist the candidate and client alike.
She always makes it a high priority to maintain good communication, prompt feedback after interviews and follow up calls.
Having worked with Danielle as my consultant I can truly recommend her for her commitment and expertise in what she does best. Never thought finding a new job would be so quick and smooth. Thank you Danielle.
Working with Eyzon was a delight. Danielle was really clear in identifying the right opportunities for my own preferences and kept me up to date with progress as the opportunities developed.
One of the important qualities that distinguishes Matt Brooks as a leading recruiter, is his commitment to provide feedback following an interview with his clients. This practice is not always followed by other recruiters.
I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Duffield and his team at Eyzon as a client and, more recently, as a candidate. As a client, I have been thoroughly impressed by their long-term, consultative approach, and by the team’s ability and willingness to add real value in terms of market insight and strategic input – even when I haven’t been actively recruiting. They’re always prompt to respond and happy to go the extra mile where needed.
I recently had opportunity to sit at the other side of the table too, as a candidate – and found Helen Easter to be honest, warm and extremely knowledgeable about the HR market. Eyzon has an impressive offering and one that will take some beating.
Freya recently helped us with some extremely tricky roles that our existing panel of suppliers had failed to deliver on. She took a detailed brief from the hiring managers and got to the crux of exactly what we were looking for, finding us some great candidates when we had seemingly hit a brick wall. Thanks very much to Freya and the whole Eyzon team who have been extremely pro-active in filling these roles for us.
I’ve worked with Eyzon and more specifically Helen Easter for a number of years now and have always received an excellent service – in terms of professionalism, market knowledge and an excellent calibre of candidate sourced. Helen is a pleasure to work with as she listens to the client’s needs and gets to know the culture of the company and its’ people before advising on any candidates’ suitability for roles. It is due to both Helen’s and Eyzon’s professionalism and dedication that I’ve continued my partnership with them throughout the last several years, having built a lot of trust in the service that their team can provide.
Eyzon reached out to me as a potential candidate for a role they was working on. We had several detailed conversations about the role and the organisation. Eyzon very successfully identified me as a likely fit for the position and 2 rounds of interviews later I was successful. Throughout the process they provided appropriate support and advice and always stayed in touch. I cannot recommend them highly enough as recruitment consultants.
I am about to start my second assignment for Eyzon thanks to Helen Easter with CallCredit next month. Helen had previously introduced me to Addleshaw Goddard for what turned out to be a very demanding but successful project.
Helen originally approached me about the opportunity at Call Credit several months ago and has kept me informed and updated over the last six months, and ultimately supported me through the interviews with them over the last fortnight.
Whilst waiting for the second interview I took a call from Jonathan (Kirby) advising me of a suitable opportunity with EMIS and I ended up interviewing with both Call Credit and EMIS last week. The interview with EMIS was ultimately unsuccessful, however during the process the support and advice from both Jonathan and Helen was completely without regard for their own targets, my best interests were their focus. A truly consultative approach so rare in recruitment. They are a credit to Eyzon and I look forward to working with them both again in the future.
Sarah is an absolute pleasure to work with and as a candidate I found her to be professional, pro-active and supportive. She builds a great relationship with you immediately. Her approach is extremely thorough and she really knows her clients and what they require; she does her research and passes this on to you as the candidate. As a Recruiter, Sarah and Eyzon are reputable and credible. They really listen to what you need and only put candidates who are suitable in front of you. They are quick and professional in their communications and you feel that your recruitment is in good hands.
Matt’s knowledge of the market and his candidate pool is excellent, and he does a great job of keeping in touch with client organisations and individuals. A first class recruitment partner.
Roxy provided a fantastic service when I was looking to change jobs. She took the time to understand my requirements and was great at keeping me informed during every step of the process. I would thoroughly recommend her to any HR professional looking for assistance with their job hunt.
Lucy Rollings supported me in securing my role at Yorkshire Water, and I found her to be professional, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in my circumstances and my career plans. Lucy’s client knowledge is spot on, she was able to match me up with very suitable businesses, and eventually placed me here at Yorkshire Water, where I am now dealing with her as one of our suppliers, and she is continuing to do a fantastic job for us. Thank you for all your help Lucy!
I go to Matt and his team at Eyzon because they have the depth of experience and knowledge of the Reward function that is required in today’s competition for talent. Eyzon’s sector knowledge is useful at both the senior end, where the focus is on strategy, and also at the practical and operational levels as well. They take great care to match the individual’s skill set to the job’s requirement while also considering the culture of the firm and the personality mix.
I asked Eyzon to source us a specialist in the relatively new discipline of HR Analytics. Their multi-industry network, deep technical knowledge and their investment in getting to know us as a business meant we were able to find an ideal match who I’m sure we’d never have uncovered without their support. As a result we’re now set up to drive leading edge HR to the business. I’m very happy to recommend Eyzon as a high quality recruitment partner.
Roxy is extremely professional and helpful. As a Recruitment Consultant, Roxy can manage, very effectively, the interactions between candidates and potential employers, doing everything she can to find the right people for the right roles. If I had the chance, I would have no hesitation to work with her again in the future.
Over the past few years, Matt has been an insightful and dependable adviser on HR resourcing, whose sober appraisal of conditions and situations have proved ever reliable. He seeks to serve both clients and candidates honestly and consistently.
Thanks to Roxy I have had, by far, the best experience I’ve ever had when looking for another role through an agency. I cannot rate her work high enough, going above and beyond to find a role that was a good fit for me. She is very personable and really made me feel at ease and set up for success in any role she put me forward for. Thank you Roxy!
Eyzon were introduced to me through a high performing member of my HR team who herself had previously been a candidate and rated them highly. I have since engaged Eyzon to assist me with a couple of senior level HR Business Partner roles, both of which they filled with first class candidates. Job titles in HR are often very generic and so the consultant I worked with, Jonathan Kirby, took the time to really understand what the role meant within our organisation, to ensure he only put forward the right level and best fit candidates. Unlike other recruitment agencies I have used that inundate you with lots of CV’s, Eyzon only put forward a small number of candidates to me which assisted greatly in terms of time spent interviewing. It is this approach and the calibre of candidates that sets Eyzon apart from many other recruitment agencies I have used in the past and I would have no hesitation in engaging their services again when I next need to recruit a high calibre HR professional.
I used Lucy Rollings to recruit a HR Consultant for Investec Wealth & Investment. From the outset, she demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the local HR market and had a genuine interest in getting to know the company, its culture and the role. She demonstrated a real passion for matching the right candidate to the right role. Throughout the recruitment process she gave me every confidence she was working hard to find the right person for our role, which she did successfully. I would have no hesitation in using Lucy again for any future HR vacancies.
Fiona recently helped me as a candidate, placing me in my current role with a class-leading consulting firm. She was professional and pleasant to deal with from start to finish and made sure I knew at every stage what was expected of me, and what to expect from the hiring firm. These days, the UK market for Reward professionals is served by a great many niche agencies, all claiming to be ‘specialists’ in the field. Eyzon have an excellent team of experienced recruiters in our sector and are one of the few who really do know their stuff.
Amongst the mass of HR recruiters, Matt is an individual who has consistently delivered great candidates. He listens carefully and takes time to understand me as a customer, my business and will push back and shape our thinking around what we’re looking for in a role.
I recommend Matt and his team without hesitation. Matt impressed me when I met him as a candidate in that he was personable and truly insightful. When I started my new assignment he was invaluable in helping me frame my thoughts for my new team. A real trusted advisor/talent expert which is rare to find in the recruitment sector.
I have worked with Matt for many years – both as a candidate and a hiring manager. His approach of quality, not quantity is a pleasant relief and works for me from both sides. Always willing to help and give advice, based on his years of experience; both I and many friends and colleagues have benefited from his help and support.
I have worked with Eyzon Consulting both as a candidate and as a client.
From a client perspective I recently worked with Freya to secure two reward specialist roles, plus my replacement role (Head of Reward) within the company I am currently contracted with. I found Freya to be extremely professional, took the time to really understand what I was looking for with regards to each of the roles, and sent through suitable CVs for me to consider. It was refreshing to only be sent through suitable CVs which made shortlisting for interview a painless exercise. Any questions I raised were answered swiftly and fully. I found that Freya was very much representing both needs – the candidates and mine (the client) – which was very reassuring to know since I am a seasoned interim and therefore also a candidate of Eyzon.
From a candidate perspective, I have known Matt Brooks for many years now. Matt ensures that he keeps in touch when I am on assignments, and more importantly when I am available for my next challenge. I find Matt to be very personable, honest, and professional.
I would thoroughly recommend Eyzon.
Eyzon were great to work with. They combine expert knowledge of the recruitment industry with professionalism and personality; for example ‘going the extra mile’ giving relevant advice to me prior to interview. Their number one focus seems to be the candidate / company they are working with, and not their own personal profit margin, and in this way make the candidate feel valued.
Helen placed me into a senior leadership role within a national organisation. I’ve found Helen to be someone who recognises and balances the needs of the candidate alongside those of the client. She looked for mutual fit and supported me in my decision-making. She always brings great humour and candour and placing this against her excellent sector and regional insight, her advice and counsel is always valuable.
From a client perspective Eyzon seeks to build close working relationships that are built on truly understanding the needs of the business and what would make an individual successful in role. Their approach is positively challenging, in that they help you consider the options available – some of which you may not have considered yourself. I always value their sharing of the market and the fact that they focus on presenting strong candidates who will contribute to the culture as well as bring the right experience.
I have worked with Jonathan for a number of years as both a client and a candidate, both with great success. Having worked for many years in the public sector, I was keen to change sector and obtain a role within the private sector. Having struggled to get my foot through the door, Jonathan was able to open doors, introduce me to the right people and help me make decisions that have ultimately resulted in me finding a role that suits me professionally and personally for the long-term future. I really like Jonathan’s focus on cultural fit when matching clients and candidates and I would always respect his judgement and experience when either considering a new role or when looking for candidates myself. Jonathan appreciates a changing landscape and is flexible in his approach to helping us find quick solutions. I look forward to working with you in the future.
Fiona is knowledgeable, responsive and interested. She presented some excellent candidates for a role recently, understanding and appreciating the specific and somewhat rare mix of technical skills we were looking for. I would not hesitate to ask Fiona to help us again in the future, or recommend her to others.
Freya has always been extremely helpful, realistic and honest all of which I think are great characteristics for a recruiter. Freya has now placed me in two roles which were both great moves and I have extremely enjoyed working with her.
Danielle is a great professional, extremely committed and knowledgeable. My experience of working with her was excellent. From initial contact until she successfully placed me into one of my Project Management roles. Danielle consistently supported me in all stages of my application, keeping in touch with updates and handling all issues. She went above and beyond to provide a great service. I’d thoroughly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for the new opportunities in HR.
The Eyzon team has experience of working on appointments on both a local and a global scale.
