  • “Thank you very much for your involvement in identifying our new Product Development Director and managing a very smooth process. This was a significant recruitment process for our business and I am very pleased with how it has gone from start to finish.”

  • “During the first half of 2021 Novo worked with the Central Bedfordshire Council on 3 retained search assignments; the recruitment of a Non-Executive Chair to oversee the Board of a start-up housing development company, and a start up care homes and services business, as well as suitably experienced Executive Directors for both of these new organisations. All 3 roles were filled.’

  • “Working with Framptons, the Somerset based niche food &r drink services company to recruit an experienced Operations Director and Head of Commercial for the site in Shepton Mallet. Novo’s experienced Food and Drink search practice did a wonderful research, advertising and networking job on these assignments, both roles were filled, and we look forward to helping Framptons with further projects in the future.”

  • “This is the fifth senior manager recruitment undertaken by Novo on behalf of EPRL in a relatively short space of time as we expand our management capabilities. Each time the process has been smooth and in each case the eventual successful candidate has hit the ground running and made a positive impact on the business. The European Project Manager role was a difficult one to fulfil but again Novo’s skill and process have helped to find the right candidate.”

Novo’s Legal Division were retained to recruit a Partner in Dispute Litigation for the company during early 2020.
