First class advice on recruitment process and on strengths/weaknesses of candidates NHS Foundation Trust Client

Excellent support…we specifically said diversity and a female appointment was a target and that is the outcome we ended up with which has been commented on positively by both our Permanent Secretary and Secretary of State.  This is a national role and represents the first ever female appointment to this role – an achievement that Gatenby should rightly be proud of supporting us to achieve –  Central Government Department

GS People Testimonials

I was struck from initial conversations how much GS staff and structures resonated personally with the stated purpose and values, whether it be as a truly agile employer, going the extra mile to support their people to balance work and personal life when needed, or just genuinely caring about their clients as much more than opportunities for income generation. Zara Wright (joined 2022) 

I joined GatenbySanderson because of the company’s obvious commitment to its values and stated aim to help build a better society. Having worked in executive search for 15 years previously, I had always enjoyed the job, however was looking to join an organisation whose focus was as much on building a better society as it was on the commercial drivers of running a business. Internally we often refer to this combination as “social heart, commercial head”. Since joining nearly two years ago, I have not been disappointed. One of the best things about working for GatenbySanderson is that everyone has the opportunity to help recruit to some of the most important roles in society. This is something that we all find equally challenging and exciting, and for me personally is one of the things that sets this company apart from everywhere else I have worked. Seb Lowe (joined 2021)

GS recruits people across the public sector. It is a humbling to play a small part in the identification, attraction, support of the best minds who are creating and delivering policies, programmes and initiatives that is striving to make this country a more inclusive society. Every day, I know I am meeting people who are looking to make a difference and it is truly inspiring to be part of their journeyNancy Scott (joined 2021)
