Craig Joseph, Chief Executive Officer, intY

"We have engaged Rockfield Specialist Recruitment for all of our Executive level appointments and many other more junior management positions over recent years, notably Global Sales Director, Financial Director, Chief Operating Officer and most recently our Chief Technology Officer too.

We don’t just view Rockfield as a supplier of staff, but as a trusted partner to our business, supporting our growth, supplying key personnel but also guiding and advising us on things like salary and benefits, or the availability for certain skills sets within the market and also the more recruitment specific advice around the specking of roles and advising on selection process. This partnership has extended to a level of service that has engaged Simon Collinson to interview our internal applicants as part of an exec level hiring process as well have having joined us in person to assist in panel interviewing candidate for final interviews.

I have worked with Rockfield on both sides of the table, as an applicant and hiring CEO and on all occasions, I have found the level of service to be engaging, timely, professional and enjoyable. Whether as a hirer or as a candidate, Rockfield have set themselves apart from the competition in the way in which they get under the skin of the requirement, treating us as individual and genuinely understanding our business need so as to enable them to shortlist candidates who, in all cases, match the brief.

During the search I’m confident that they leave no stone unturned, search and engaging with the best available candidates for our need. They don’t bombard us but send as many as the market can offer, keeping us well informed throughout. By the time we meet the candidates, they’re not only appropriate for our role but are well briefed and prepared for interview, which is invaluable to us, in view of scarcity of available time when all of our senior management are available, together and able to interview.

We are a tough customer, with tight schedules and a requirement for very specific market sector or technology experience and Rockfield understand and work well with this to manage our and the candidate’s expectations so as to bring a process to a successful conclusion.

I would unreservedly recommend Rockfield Specialist Recruitment’s services."
