“We conducted a competitive process to find the right partner to lead the search for our Chief Commercial Officer. Berwick Partners won out, but it was Aemilia that made the decision for us. We are growing company and the CCO position is not only a big investment for us but finding the right person central to our plans for development. From the start Aemilia really listened to our vison and values, understood our needs, and quickly found a very impressive long list of candidates for us. I can honestly say Amelia has been brilliant. Always available, making sure we are up to date with processes. It has felt like a true partnership. In my experience recruiting can be a painful process, Aemilia has made this experience both painless and pleasurable." 

Jill Ireland, CEO, Homelink

“I was first introduced to Aemilia during lockdown by Simon Walton, with whom I had worked in a previous role. We have only met face to face once and this was after the assignment was completed, however, this has never been an issue as Aemilia is very good at building relationships and developing trust quickly, even in an entirely remote working environment.

Aemilia knows her business well and is passionate about healthcare. She’s a good listener, puts emphasis on understanding the nuances of her client’s business, shares her knowledge and insights, and challenges where necessary to get to the best outcomes. She has demonstrated flexibility in her approach, is honest about what she can and can’t do and manages expectations well so there are no surprises. Aemilia has so far provided three senior hires for us and is currently working with us on another two roles. I trust her and also enjoy working with her, I have never worried about what is happening on the searches with Aemilia which is down to how she has managed me! Aemilia is excellent at what she does, and I would not hesitate in recommending her to any of my network.”

Judith Lyons, HRD, City & Country Healthcare

"Just a quick note to say thank you for the kind introduction to Hannah who has been first class. We now have our man who is absolutely the right type of chap we were seeking. Hannah listened, engaged, really got what we were about and conveyed that to candidates with passion and enthusiasm. If I had to rate the whole experience it would be five stars."

Robert Fielding, Founder, MySkinDoctor
