We appointed Starfish to recruit our new CEO because their desire to do an outstanding job was evident right from the start. We weren't disappointed. Their passion for the sector and for connecting the best people to exciting challenges shines through everything they do.
From the moment of initial appointment to the final offer, Starfish were unfailingly responsive, professional and impressive. We had the sense that they really cared about us and wanted to do the best, going beyond some of the more formulaic responses of the bigger firms.
They're really good at recruiting for fit. They really knew our organisation, our sector. They knew the people who would thrive within it, and they recruited for that.
As a recruitment experience I have never been so impressed. I immediately felt I could trust and rely on them to select and provide a range of candidates that were a suitable fit in background experience and personality. I have personally been selecting and hiring team members for over 40 years but realise there is still more to learn having worked alongside Starfish.
It felt like they really focused on us and what we wanted. I just thought they were fresh, pretty dynamic and in an appropriate way, they have energy.
Difficult conversation are exactly that. They can stir up all sorts of emotions and can often be influenced by our own biases. We have just had what could have been a difficult conversation but it was the opposite for me. Thank you for taking the time to talk. #personaldevelopment
