Making an impression on our customers

Stanton House has recruited for my team on several occasions since 2011, their network within Telecoms and understanding of the sector is excellent. They differentiate themselves in the marketplace by building a long-term relationship with me, and my team, delivering efficiently on requirements and finding high calibre candidates that fit into our culture. Shortlists are always tailored, and therefore allow us to conduct only a few interviews until we reach offer stage.

Stephen Pilkington

Finance Director, Telecoms business

I have successfully used Stanton House both as an employer and as a candidate and have found that they offer an outstanding service. They differentiate themselves by investing time and endeavour in both candidate and business relationships for the long term. Stanton House have been very good in taking the time to understand me as a candidate and what I was looking for in my career and similarly as a recruiter the business needs, the culture and the kind of people who can be successful in our business environment. The investment to ensure that skills, aptitude and personality fit worked for both the candidate and the business and has led to Stanton House providing some of the highest performing candidates to our business. I am always happy to recommend Stanton House.

Stanton House worked hard to develop a deep knowledge of what was required for effective Programme Delivery within the organisation. They quickly understood the cultural aspects as well as our technical requirements. The team consistently delivered strong results in the deployment of Programme Delivery capability on an Interim and Permanent basis and have played a significant part in helping the Change Management Function deliver for the Business.

Head of Change & Corporate Services, Coutts, Royal Bank of Scotland Group

I have used Stanton House both as an employer and as a candidate, and have found that they offer an excellent service. The key differentiation compared to other recruitment agencies is their focus on relationships, both with the employer and more uniquely with the candidate. This enables them to put a shortlist of candidates together, sometimes at very short notice, that matches the skills required as well as the personality-fit required to make the placement a success in the long-term. The follow-up with the employer and the candidate after placement is regular and genuine. I strongly recommend Stanton House to any company looking for a consultancy partner for the recruitment of Finance personnel.

The team at Stanton House have done an exceptional job for Bibby Financial Services; both from a customer and a candidate perspective, as confirmed by direct feedback from candidates. Stanton House continues to provide an exceptional service and differentiate themselves, and therefore BFS and me personally, in a competitive market place. The programme of work has been extremely demanding and challenging, however, Stanton House have consistently delivered.

Global Change & IT Director, Bibby Financial Services

Stanton House has redefined what service to the customer and candidate should look like in the recruitment industry. As a candidate, they spent time to really understand me and my own requirements and ensured that any opportunity they passed by me was a good fit. Stanton House provides outstanding support to ensure a successful placement and this resulted in me finding a good job quickly. Now as a customer, I still experience the very high levels of customer service and they are very much my trusted and long term partner.

Manny Gill

Head of Finance, Aldermore Bank

Engaging Stanton House as our talent sourcing partner has been of significant advantage, both in terms of freeing up management team resource who previously spent considerable time on recruitment activity, and more importantly, of giving  our business access to the broadest possible talent marketplace, consistently generating quicker and better quality resource outcomes.

CIO, FTSE 250 Company

Stanton House are different to most other recruitment agencies I have worked with. They take time to understand your requirements in detail and then are honest as to whether or not they can help. When they say they can help they invariably deliver strong candidates with both the skills and the personality for the role in question.

Finance Director

The team at Stanton House differentiate themselves by working with their clients to understand their present and future needs, and are then passionate about identifying the right talent with the experience and skills to fit in culturally with the clients organisation. They are a great bunch to work with and have an impressive specialist capability in providing experienced professionals that would hold senior positions in other corporations or consultancies.

Head of IT Programme Delivery, Royal Bank of Scotland Group

I would highly recommended Olivia as a recruitment consultant. She actively listened to what I was and was not looking for in a new role and she did not try to 'sell' me roles which would not be suitable. She was incredibly professional and kept me up to date throughout the recruitment process and supported me wherever she could. It was a pleasure working with Olivia.

Felicity Stevens

The team at Stanton House provide both strategic and hands on support, and actually focus on delivery in a world where PowerPoint jockeys have historically (and frustratingly) cornered the market. Stanton House have proven to be extremely flexible and work hard to find the right people for the right role to ensure work is carried out effectively, efficiently and with real added value. I genuinely believe that it is only through investment in companies like Stanton House that true, effective and timely transformation can take place, especially for larger organisations.

CFO, Global Head of Products, Deutsche Bank

We started working with the team at Stanton House mid-way through 2014. This was a time in our business of fast growth and expansion. As a small entrepreneurial start up organisation based in Edinburgh our needs are relatively unique from a culture and specialist skills perspective. Stanton House delivered great candidates every time. Their knowledge of our industry surprised us and it quickly became clear that they were not just another recruitment agency They got to know our employer brand, culture and business needs quickly and worked at speed to deliver top candidates. If you are looking for a quality executive recruiter look no further.

Following a mandate to recover and remediate a programme of works to deliver 5 new current account products and migrate customers to the new product suites, the team at Stanton House Associates fully engaged with the business to understand our needs and supplied a strong team of Associate Consultants, ranging from senior stakeholder management through to delivery (Programme Director, Programme Manager, Senior Project Managers, Senior Business Analysts, Testers and PMO). Following the success of this programme, the team were asked to migrate all back book customers to the new product suites including involvement in marcoms, complaints, data control, legal, KYC, technology, transitional processes, MI and BAU transition. I can’t praise the Stanton House Associates team highly enough for the expertise they provided at a most critical time

Senior Programme Director, Major UK Retail Bank

Stanton House created a pool of high quality individuals and delivered this in a cost effective manner compared to alternative routes I have used in the past.  All of my future clients will be advised to adopt the talent partner model as a key component of their complex programme and portfolio management, the advantages and agility of having higher quality resources sourced and 'on tap' is too powerful an advantage to ignore.

Head of Programme Delivery, Major UK Retail Bank

Having worked at the same company for years, I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to start looking for a new challenge and didn't really know the best place to start. When Sally McFall contacted me directly about an opportunity at a well-established Investment Management firm, I was initially intrigued as the firm in question is not one that I've seen actively recruiting and so decided to put myself forward. I couldn't believe that following my first interview in over 13 years I was offered the position, and Sally McFall has been integral in helping me to do this. Sally provided assistance with interview preparation and practice to get me through the big day, and I've had fantastic support from her throughout the whole recruitment process. Fundamentally Sally knows her Clients, she understands the roles she is recruiting for, and she clearly takes the time to learn about what her Clients want, accurately matching candidates with appropriate positions. I would definitely recommend Sally McFall as a recruitment agent as she has exceeded my expectations in finding me a superb opportunity so quickly and has made the whole job seeking process simple and stress-free.

Stanton House Associates were able to fulfil an urgent requirement for three highly specialised Associates to assist in the scoping and kick off of a large regulatory Programme with Global scope. The speed with which they reacted and the quality of the Associates was testament to the strength of their talent pool. We met three Associates and engaged all three; it was a highly efficient and satisfactory experience.
