We were looking to land a divisional Head of Technology for a group business and partnered with Alec and Laudale to find suitable candidates. I couldn’t have been happier with the service they provided. Initial vetting of potential candidates by Laudale was first class. The feedback we had on the candidates from Laudale very much matched our own experience when we interviewed and was far more detailed than I have seen from many other search firms. We quickly got to a sensible shortlist and from there the process of turning around offers to acceptance was smoothly handled. We felt well informed through the process and from conversations with candidates they were similarly well treated.
What makes Alec stand out is that he genuinely ‘gets’ working in partnership. His ability to understand our business and the effort he’s made to understand and embrace our culture have made him a ‘go to’ person for IT and Transformation positions.
I’ve found the whole process with Laudale very thorough and comprehensive. The preparation that Alec and his team did to initially interview me and when putting me in front of the potential employer was second to none.
Over the past 3 years, Laudale have helped us assemble an outstanding team of experienced architects. This team has significantly helped in our objective to become a world class digital retailer. The feedback from contractors has been excellent - the team love working with Laudale, and this is really important to us. Highly recommended, professional recruitment firm.
Thank you for the congratulations following our fantastic result last night at the CIO 100 awards. Being recognised by your peers is special but we could not have done this without the team that you and Laudale helped to recruit for Manchester City Council.
Laudale and Alec in particular have been the best recruitment firm I have worked with. Alec is incredibly professional and always had my interest as a candidate at heart even to the extent of recommending me to organisations where he would not gain financially. Alec goes the extra mile in terms of navigating complex processes and tenaciously following up to ensure the right outcome. I would definitely recommend Laudale to future candidates and organisations seeking IT professionals alike.
Very professional... excellent service and kept updated in progress at all times. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Laudale to anyone wishing to recruit in the IT leadership area.
Laudale are always transparent in their dealings, never promise and fail to deliver, are great at keeping me informed of progress and issues and always do the right thing for me as a client and also as a candidate. I don’t feel like a sales target or quota to be hit.
Laudale is simply the best recruitment organisation I have come across in my career so far... Getting the balance right between representing the recruiting organisation and candidates applying is difficult to achieve, but I believe Laudale get the balance just right. Laudale would be a great asset to any organisation recruiting for mid to senior IT professionals.
Working with Laudale has been an excellent experience, their approach is refreshingly honest based on trust... Laudale have their clients interests at the center of every decision, a quick win is not in their nature.
I enjoy Alec’s tenacity and straight talking... he does what he says and always acts in the interest of both parties, fairly. He consistently engages and provides feedback and mediate where required.
I’ve really enjoyed working with Alec. He’s knowledgeable, honest and is a genuine people person. Should the need ever arise, would not hesitate to engage Alec to help find a new role and have recommended him to my peers/colleagues.
Having recently moved back to the UK after more than a decade overseas, and speaking to many agencies, it was a welcome breath of fresh air dealing with Alec. I knew what was going on at every step of the hiring process and was offered a contract that matched both my requirements and skill set.
I have been really impressed with the service that I have received from Laudale. Alec has keeps in constant contact and has been extremely approachable and helpful whilst Claire has been great in guiding me through all of the administrative tasks.
