It's been an absolute pleasure working with Allen Lane, who've now placed me on two occasions. I've found Adrian to be very professional and personable, providing frequent updates and making what can be an anxious process, run very smoothly. Thank you!
Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust
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
Allen Lane's approach to this recruitment was professional and highly successful. Adrian quickly understood the role that I was looking to recruit to and was able to supply me with a shortlist of high quality candidates where more than one candidate was appointable. I would recommend Allen Lane to other organisations looking to recruit finance professionals.
Chief Operating Officer
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
I would recommend Adrian without hesitation. His understanding of healthcare and network of senior contacts across the NHS are second to none in his field. What really set Adrian apart from the rest was his ability and appetite to listen to my career ambitions openly and independently, and to provide constructive challenge and insight.
Adrian Watts has provided me with excellent support throughout the last few years of my career. He has an exceptional knowledge of NHS finance and is keen to make sure that any employment opportunities are suited to my skills, experience and ambitions. His support doesn't begin and end with the recruitment process, but is ongoing, maintaining a keen interest in how my career is progressing, regularly providing advice, and listening and responding to any issues I may have.
Finance & Contracting Lead
The service provided by Allen Lane has been professional and to a very high standard ensuring our needs were fully met. The excellent personable skills provided by Liam were carried through to the candidates they provided.
Head of Financial Accounts
We were very pleased with the manner in which Allen Lane handled the recruitment of our new Finance Director. They showed a quick grasp of the key features of our organisation, and the distinctly unusual aspects involved. The end result was an excellent candidate, who has settled into the role in the most exemplary way. The professionalism shown by the Allen Lane team gave us a smooth passage.
The Thalidomide Trust
Allen Lane were able - very quickly and effectively - to really appreciate our business needs in our finance transformation project. Working as a collaborative partner they were then able to present a diverse selection of high calibre, top quality candidates to meet those needs.
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.
