S.H. Harrold Ltd.

Richard Campbell, Director.

“I had not used headhunters before, but found Hunter Human Capital filled my staff vacancy in an efficient and confidential manner. The timescale that was offered was kept to and the selection procedures were explained along the way. Helpful guidance was given to assist with the interviewing of suitable candidates selected by their staff. This resulted in a successful placement within the Harrolds Group.”

Flint and Partners.

Ed Lyons, Director.

“As a growing multi-site Independent practice, it was vital for us to find the best candidate to become our new manager. We were replacing someone who had been with us for 25 years and knew our practice inside out. Hunter Human Capital sourced 18 excellent candidates and not only gave us the platform to select the most appropriate person but also taught us about ourselves and our business. We are confident that we are going from strength to strength and using HHC has been an integral part of our future development.”

Mackereth Opticians.

Jeremy Topliss, Director.

“I found dealing with the staff at Hunter Human Capital a very satisfactory affair. Their help through the process was clear and concise and they produced 7 very respectable candidates for interview, within the timeframe they described, from which I was able to choose someone best suited to our optical business. I was very happy with their overall service and would definitely use them again without hesitation.”

Harsh Shah, Director.

“I am very grateful for all the help and advice given to me throughout the recruitment process. The advice was very clear and the whole process went along very smoothly. The candidates were sought on my behalf in the most professional manner, and this became apparent when I carried out the interviews. My staffing needs have been fulfilled now and I would not hesitate to call on your services should the need arise in the future!”

Eyeworks Opticians.

Mehul Doshi, Director.

“I would just like to thank you for helping me fill the position of Dispensing Optician at my practice. I was very sceptical at first about this process but actually it turned out to be a great decision. I was given a lot of excellent help and advice about the whole recruitment process throughout. I found a person who lived locally and this is a real plus. I would be happy to use your services again and would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thank you!”

John Biddle, Opticians.

John Biddle, Owner.

“Having never made use of headhunting services before, I would now only ever go down this route in future. Hunter Human Capital demonstrated total professionalism and delivered. By the time one has paid for very expensive and often unsuccessful advertising, or engaged costly employment agencies with absolutely no interest or ability in recruitment, it really leaves only one sensible recruiting option – Hunter Human Capital.”

David Spicer Optometrists.

Sally Spicer, Partner.

“Following the experience of trying to recruit professional staff by placing expensive and often unfruitful adverts in the optical press, a friend suggested we should try Hunter Human Capital to fill a vacancy for a key member of our small team. They charge no fee unless they fill your vacancy so on the basis that we had nothing to lose we decided to give it a try. We found the whole process was managed extremely courteously and professionally at all stages. We were consulted and kept informed and despite it being a difficult time of year for recruiting (end of the summer; many people still on holiday etc) we have now recruited an excellent Dispensing Optician who we expect to be a valuable member of our team for many years to come. We are quite sure that she would not have responded to an advert. We would very much recommend the Hunter Human Capital style of headhunting as a stress free way to recruit good quality staff.”

Howie and Tickner Optometrists.

John Tickner, Director.

"I was impressed with the professional approach taken by HHC who were able to source high quality candidates for interview without the need for me to screen out unsuitable applicants. The whole process was carried out efficiently and smoothly and I will certainly be looking to HHC to assist with my future recruiting."

Philip and Mary Thompson Opticians.

Mary Thompson, Partner.

“Thank you for calling again to see how things are going with our new employee. He is progressing very well and we have booked him on various courses so that he can continue to advance his career. We have been very impressed with the way that you handled our request with help in finding new staff members. I do feel that this is a worthwhile way of sourcing already employed staff who may not have been considering a move at this time. General advertising is always a hit and miss affair in optics and using an agency means that we are only looking at people already enrolled with the agency. I am very aware that headhunting is widely employed in other fields in order to contact the very best potential employees. I am surprised that it is so little used in optics!”

Morgan White Optometrists.

Lisa & Andrew Morgan, Owners.

“We are a small independent optometry practice and had advertised for a dispensing optician in the professional journals and via websites but were unable to appoint. Hunter Human Capital contacted us and we thought we had nothing to lose. They found us many more suitable candidates than our adverts had managed. In the end, we had a very difficult decision to choose which of our shortlist to select, as they were all so good. Our new dispensing optician was so impressed by the very professional manner in which she was recruited that she has recommended Hunter Human Capital to her previous employers! We were very impressed with our consultant, who was always friendly and very effective. We would not hesitate to recommend Hunter Human Capital to anyone looking to recruit and indeed have already done so several times.”

Enderbys of Boston.

Mrs. D. Enderby, Owner.

“Having used traditional recruitment agencies in the past and not having had good results, we were getting desperate to fill our vacancy for a Dispensing Optician. I did not realise that Hunter Human Capital was a firm of headhunters until I made the initial telephone call. I have to admit I was nervous, as I felt our practice was far too small to use the services of headhunters. How wrong could I be? The company has been more than professional in all aspects of their role, leading me through the difficult task of finding me an employee with ease. Their efficiency and support throughout has been exemplary. The end result is we believe we have the perfect person for the job. Using Hunter Human Capital was the best decision we made and I have no hesitation in highly recommending their use to other practices. The only regret I have is that I do not need more staff!”

Vision Centre Group.

Paul Avraam, Managing Director.

“I was a major sceptic but not any more. In the past, I never used headhunting companies because I considered them too expensive and not cost effective. I also believed that I would always find the person that I needed by advertising. Well, Hunter Human Capital not only performed a small miracle but also found the people with the perfect credentials for my business. They are professional, discreet and courteous in the way they approach prospective candidates. I have no hesitation in recommending them and will most certainly use them again in the future.”

Stirling Optical.

Heather McArdle, Practice Manager.

“Hunter Human Capital has proven that distance is no object when sourcing quality staff! We have tried many forms of advertising and spent a lot of money doing so but never got the right applicant. Initially we were a little sceptical about headhunting but thanks to the dedicated team at Human Hunter Capital we now have an excellent, experienced and caring Optom in our company and business is going from strength to strength. We would certainly look no further when recruiting in the future than to Hunter Human Capital.”

Jarvis Optometrists.

Ian Jarvis, Director.

“Although initially sceptical about headhunting, I have been very impressed by the professionalism of Hunter Human Capital. They carefully matched the needs of our business with the aspirations of the candidates. They also provided useful guidance on interview procedures. Overall the company were a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend them to any of my colleagues.”

Roger Meredith Opticians.

Roger Meredith, Director.

“I simply cannot over-emphasise the difference in the quality and quantity of candidates produced by headhunting over advertising. From struggling to find anyone barely acceptable, we were genuinely spoilt for choice following Hunter's involvement. The service was rapid and professional, and as we were new to both headhunting and professional recruitment, their ongoing advice was invaluable. I would not consider future recruitment in any other way.”
