Bev & Maria helped us fill a key senior finance position. Following an assessment of the assignment brief and a chat to talk through, they quickly provided an excellent choice of candidates that with their input we whittled down to five interviews. Following the interview process, it was ultimately not an easy decision to choose between the three we thought were strongest – a nice problem to have!
Tony Pope, Chief Financial Officer at Antony Hodari Legal Services
Dickson O’Brien’s outstanding strength is their integrity. Whenever I needed an NHS contractor to fulfil a specific role, Maria and Bev would either very quickly supply an individual, who was an excellent fit, or simply tell me that they didn’t have anyone suitable at that time. This honest and open approach, together with a close knowledge of their candidates, is the nub of their success.
Tim Rutt, Former Assistant Director of Finance at a NHS Trust
Dickson O’Brien were recommended to me by a former work colleague who said that they would listen to my needs & provide and deliver a carefully chosen shortlist of candidates. My colleague was right candidate we employed has exceeded expectations and continues to add great value to our business.
Ben Johnson, Marketing Director, Holts
A very professional team who look to build long-term relationships and meet client needs.
Sarah Grantham, candidate
Dickson O’Brien were eager to understand the school’s requirements, communicated frequently and clearly during the process and acted professionally throughout. They very quickly captured the ethos of the organisation and nature of the role, and generated a strong and suitable shortlist of candidates. I would have no reservation in recommending their services to another organisation.
Headteacher, Formby High School
I registered my CV with Dickson O’Brien Associates and it was one of the best things I have ever done. Both Maria and Bev were very supportive and listened to what I wanted instead of just telling me all about what the employers wanted. I am now working as finance assistant in a company that has a turnover in billions and is often referred to as a giant in its industry and absolutely love my job, all thanks to Maria and Bev who believed in me.
