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.

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.
