Richard Phinn - 2019-02-05
I recently worked with Patrick on securing a senior finance position in the London insurance market. He worked hard to understand my profile and experience and provided a clear and thorough understanding of the Company and role. Patrick provided good advice and I would recommend him to both prospective employers and candidates alike.

I contacted Patrick a few weeks ago about the market and what my options were in securing a good position in the near future. Even though I was not expecting a response until the next day, Patrick immediately contacted me to discuss the market and also about what I wanted. Within a few hours I had a respective job spec in my hands. Patrick knows the market and the people within the market. His professionalism is everything one can ask for when you are job hunting. During the interview process you are also not left on your own and he ensured the whole process went smooth. Thank you Patrick for securing my new role.

If you are looking for someone to provide you with excellent ideas and candidates for roles then I can recommend Patrick. I entered my first Independent Non-Executive role with the support of Patrick and found him to be totally professional and supportive in his approach. Going forward I would also seek his advice and input into any requirements I had from an Executive standpoint to source credible candidates for a company’s needs.

Patrick was personally recommended to me through a number of sources when I was looking at potential opportunities. I found him an excellent person to deal with on both a professional and personal basis. He knows the market extremely well, is honest and open in his views and regularly provided insightful updates throughout the process. I have already provided his details to other contacts and would have no hesitation in recommending him for any recruitment related services.

Patrick has an excellent understanding of the Insurance Market. He takes the time to understand both the requirements of the role and the culture and values of an organisation.

I have known Patrick for some years now both as a recruiter and as a client, and have no hesitation in recommending him and his team for their diligence, knowledge and understanding of the Insurance marketplace. Patrick and his team maintain regular contact and excel in identifying/placing candidates that both meet and subsequently prove to exceed expectations.

Patrick has great market knowledge which is vital when we are looking for particular skill-sets and trying to fill roles that require specific types of personality.

Over the years Patrick has been able to supply candidates that meet our requirements and many gone on to be successful in our actuarial and risk consulting business.

Patrick is an excellent person to deal with on both a professional and personal basis. I have done business with Patrick for the past 10 years, and look forward to continuing that relationship.

I have worked with Patrick many times as a client and have always been impressed with his knowledge of the marketplace, ability to understand requirements and then (most importantly) deliver results.

In addition to working directly with Patrick, I worked with employees of his company and was generally very impressed with their ability and approach.

I would recommend Patrick to anyone looking for a high level of service either directly or from those who work for him.
Andrew Clarke - 2010-03-24
I have worked with Patrick when he was at High Finance on various searches over the years to identify risk management candidates. I found Patrick's knowledge of the market, potential candidates and ways to approach our needs to be outstanding value. I would also add the values of Personable and Creative to the list of attributes that best describes the service Patrick provides.
Miles Murphy - 2010-03-24

Deb Brown - 2010-03-18
I have had the pleasure of working with Patrick over the last nine years, providing his teams with Antipodean professionals seeking employment in the UK. I don't think you could meet a more passionate insurance recruiter, with in depth knowledge of the London insurance market and recruitment as a whole. His passion and enthusiasm inspires those who meet him and those who work with him.
Andrew W Fisher - 2010-03-16
Thoroughly recommend Patrick's work as a leading head-hunter. I have worked with him extensively for the past five years and he excels where others fail by not only having an outstanding knowledge of the business, but also the personalities who work in the industry. He keeps in touch regularly with his contacts and can be trusted with finding solutions to senior level recruitment problems.
