Read testimonials from the candidates we've worked with below:

“I was approached by Claire McKee from Clarendon Executive at a time when I wasn’t actively looking for a new position, and the idea of leaving a successful career in the City of London hadn’t crossed my mind. What I most appreciated was Claire’s strong relationship management focus and she gave me a very clear view of what the role entailed from a recruitment and strategic perspective.It was Claire’s impressive and detailed understanding of how the new role fit my experience and career aspirations that finally convinced me to apply, accept the position and subsequently relocate back to Belfast.Claire was highly empathetic to the challenges that relocating from a big city to a regional city would bring and offered me some fantastic career coaching advice along the way.Her ability to really get to know her clients and their strategic needs has meant I have used her extensively. I can’t recommend Claire, and Clarendon Executive, highly enough."

Caroline Van Der Feltz, HR Director (Financial Services sector)

“Clarendon Executive’s approach was personal but professional, as well as informative and supportive, evidencing a clear understanding not only of their client’s needs but also my own.Joanne McAuley’s detailed knowledge of the sector and current policing management practice was impressive and proved invaluable to me during the selection process.All in all, Clarendon Executive’s clear and reliable insight, direction and guidance far exceeded my expectations and made the whole experience from initial phone call through to appointment as hassle-free and seamless as possible.”

Deputy Chief Officer, Belfast Harbour Police

“I was working as Operations Director at Go North East in England and actively looking for opportunities closer to home. I contacted Clarendon Executive as they had been recommended to me and gave them my details, including a CV. Joanne McAuley contacted me soon after to discuss my current experience and what opportunities were currently available in Northern Ireland.Jonnne regularly kept me updated and when a suitable role became available provided all the information needed to apply for the position, as well supporting me through the process.The position was accurately communicated and the pack provided gave excellent detail on what Translink were looking for in the role as General Manager.I would fully recommend Clarendon Executive to anyone seeking a senior role within Northern Ireland."

General Manager, Translink

"As a prospective candidate, you always wonder what it’s like to apply for a senior management position via a recruitment company. I had that call from a consultant at Clarendon Executive recently, and I’d have to say that from the outset their exemplary professionalism and support was unquestionable. They sold me the opportunity, the challenge and made it personal. They offered regular feedback and encouragement throughout the process, coupled with genuine positivity and reinforcement of outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clarendon Executive to anyone looking for a senior management opportunity in any industry and with any background. They have the quality and breadth of experience to deliver.”

Head of HR, Belfast City Council

“When I made the decision to leave London and pursue a career in my hometown of Belfast, I didn’t expect the change to happen so quickly and so smoothly. But thanks to Clarendon Executive’s support and guidance I successfully applied for a Head of Tax role. Appreciating that at the time of application I was still based in London, they set up all interviews to take place on the same day and communicated the agenda and format of interview in a detailed, timely manner. They were very personable in their approach and quick to respond when I had any questions. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

Head of Tax, Financial Services sector

“I have found Clarendon Executive, and in particular Claire McKee, to be an excellent team to work with.   Claire really spends time getting to know you, your skills and personality and works hard to understand your career aspirations.  She also fully immerses herself in the organisation she is recruiting for, so that conversations are more meaningful and she can give you a great insight into the role and the team, way beyond what's on paper. In my case Claire was tenacious in encouraging me to apply for my current role.  She was helpful and supportive throughout the recruitment process giving feedback and direction when I needed it.  Claire could clearly see long before I could that my role was a strong match for my skills and experience and would be a position that I found fulfilling and rewarding. I have actively recommended Claire and Clarendon Executive to both candidates and organisations.”
