    Chief Executive Officer, Anderson Lloyd.

    What we are looking for from a recruitment partner is a firm with a good reputation in the market and one that has access to a broad selection of candidates. Having an added level of search and recruitment expertise, really makes the difference. At the time of being introduced to Decipher Group, we knew we needed a new approach and Decipher have certainly delivered.

    Decipher find the right people based on the skills and requirements criteria. In some instances, this can mean a limited pool of candidates, but we trust Decipher to find the right people and when needed, challenge our thinking.

  • Darren Evans

    Chief Executive Officer, Calder Stewart.

    We typically partner with an external recruitment consultancy when looking for executive level roles. The value for us, is tapping into a consultancy’s wider networks, looking for talent in industries different to ours as well as identifying up and coming leaders and future talent in the regions in which we operate. Decipher Group is great at building networks and relationships in a business environment; they have strong connections in the market and Calder Stewart leverage this when recruiting for roles.
