CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • “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.”

  • “We have worked with Novo Executive Search before on a couple of challenging pieces of recruitment. Novo has provided an excellent quality of service which has led to a successful appointment on both occasions. We would be happy to recommend Novo to other companies wishing to secure the services of a specialist executive search business.”

  • “My personal experience with Novo was really good. They had all the information I needed whilst being professional, discreet and considerate, which ultimately made the whole process extremely smooth.” Account Director, Catalina Marketing

  • “Novo was appointed to search for a new Managing Director for Chiorino UK Ltd. The UK division (one of 60 divisions worldwide) has traded for over 40 years. Novo were able to access the very best candidates, keeping us fully informed throughout the process. From the initial list of candidates presented to us we were able to recruit a successor. We were delighted with Ryan’s work. We would have no hesitation in recommending Novo.”

  • “Following a robust selection process it was clear that Novo had the right credentials and through Dale exhibited a level of competence and understanding which made my decision to engage with Novo very easy. As a result of Novo’s commitment and hard work we have acquired 5 very good businesses. We plan to embark on a third round of acquisitions next year and will have no hesitation in choosing Novo as a partner.”
