The service I received from Allen Lane was first class and Steve is a great asset to them. He made the whole recruitment process seamless and the aftercare service was second to none. He is someone I value very much in my role as Head of Schools Finance.
Head of Schools Finance
The Learning Trust
It is always reassuring to find a recruitment company you can work with which is totally reliable and genuinely makes the effort to find the right candidate for the client as opposed to the right commission figure to help meet their end of month targets
St John's Hospital Bath
I have found Allen Lane to be an excellent business partner. I have been particularly impressed by their speed of response and knowledge of the market. It is also refreshing to deal with the same team over a long period of time so that a good relationship can be developed.
Deputy Finance Director
Notting Hill Housing Association
Whether a client or candidate you can be sure that your relationship with Allen Lane will be individual, rewarding and importantly long lasting. I've known James in particular going on for 8 years, as a client he's helped me to recruit high calibre finance teams and as a candidate he's placed me in a number of challenging and CV enhancing roles. My individual circumstances and requirements are always understood and my expectations met through high quality service.
Senior Interim Manager
Ministry of Justice
I first started working with Allen Lane in the spring of 2008 when we were recruiting a Director level finance person. They weren't one of our senior finance suppliers at that stage but, due to their sheer accuracy and professionalism, they now are. Lester Fernando is excellent and I would heartily recommend him and Allen Lane.
HR Manager, Recruitment & Retention
Metropolitan Housing Partnership
Steve McKenzie has found me a Head of Finance to cover maternity leave and a Head of People Management to cover a vacancy. These have both been extremely successful appointments
Divisional Director Resources
London Borough of Lambeth
Using Allen Lane, we have successfully recruited people into five senior posts in the last six months. Once you have a clear understanding of the type of person you are looking for, there is no better way of finding the perfect candidate than by having a discussion with Allen Lane.
ex Director of Finance
Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
After the departure of our long serving Head of Finance, Allen Lane listened to our needs and provided us with a number of strong candidates, mainly from the private sector. They provided advice, flexibility and an excellent service and we appointed from the first round of interviews.
Chair, G20 Group of Housing Associations
The service we receive from Steve is top class. He is very committed and once Steve knows that we are looking to recruit he pulls out all the stops
Head of Financial Planning & Investments
I am delighted to give Allen Lane a testimonial. We have had a number of vacant positions in the past, mainly for qualified Finance Manager positions. Allen Lane's team is helpful and friendly when helping us with recruitment. I definitely recommend them.
