Our Interim Team
What people say
PA has deployed the specialist services provided by Campbell Tickell in a range of business areas. Their experts have enabled us to enhance our activities in a faster, professional and cost-effective manner to complement the work performed by my colleagues. I would have no hesitation in recommending Campbell Tickell to other organisations.
What we discovered was that there was no such thing as too much communication. It was communication, communication, communication.
In that regard, the WhatsApp Group Campbell Tickell set up was really, really useful. It gave chief execs a safe space to offload, to ask questions, to check what other people were doing, to sense-check, to check stuff. It was really helpful, and I’d like to carry that sort of forum forward.
I think actually it accelerated decision-making in the sector and helped us make better decisions more quickly.
SPEAR engaged Campbell Tickell to lead on the recruitment of a new Chief Executive recently. From the start CT showed a clear understanding of what Trustees and the charity needed from a new CE and they carried out a professional and wide ranging search to attract a strong field of candidates. CT supported SPEAR throughout with clear guidance, analysis and assistance through responsive and prompt action and ensured the best possible outcome for the charity. We now look forward to our new CE arriving in May.
Excellent engagement and high quality challenge, providing great insights as well as a very useful and thorough review of the fundamentals. A real value adding service as well as being good Value For Money.
CT were easy to work with. The process was good and we had a good range of candidates.
Extremely accessible team who provide a high support high challenge approach to their work. Extremely knowledgeable about their field of work inspiring confidence with their recommendations
I would like to thank Campbell Tickell for their help and support during the recruitment of a new Chief Executive. From the initial reply, to our tender invitation, it was clear that CT’s attention to detail; searching out our needs and the support to the senior members of the board to refine their thinking; made all the difference to the final outcome. The innovative approach employed to involve the full board has been commented on and the final agreement by them made the selection of the best candidate a relatively simple matter. The list of potential applicants was wide and varied and gave us the opportunity to test the market and line up a new CEO to fit our needs in the next stage of our development. It was gratifying to note that the panels of Trustees and CT’s own interviews brought out the same results. This gave the board a measure of confidence added to their own thoughts in the final analysis. The whole process was designed to involve as many of the board as wished to take part, with the final selection of the last 3 being attended by the full board. This gave the necessary buy-in by the board and was handled in an innovative way with presentations from the candidates. I would have no problem in recommending Campbell Tickell for recruitment or other work in our space, you seem to have a great and detailed understanding of the needs of our sector.
Our Tenants Panel review project was managed sensitively and effectively by Irene Banon. With Irene’s help our Tenants Panel has a clear direction for the future, supported by a workable framework for implementing the changes. I would highly recommend to others.
Thank you so much to Greg and team for an outstanding job in helping us recruit our new Chairman. Your help with what was a thorough process and in supporting our final selection was invaluable. All candidates spoke very highly of the whole process and the calibre of candidates was exceptional. We could have appointed any one of the last three candidates, which is testament to the great job by you and your team. All together a rigorous process and appointment. Michael, our CEO, and the Board are delighted with the outcome.
I’d like to thank Gera, Bill and your team for all your efforts on our Chief Executive recruitment. I believe we couldn’t have made a better appointment, we are delighted to have Denise on board and we’re all really looking forward to working with her.
We felt your recruitment process was rigorous albeit with flexibility, you listened to us and adapted your approach accordingly. I also appreciated your willingness to go the extra mile and, for example, conduct evening meetings and take weekend calls, to accommodate availability constraints.
This was an excellent quality and a good value for money process. I really enjoyed working with CT and I am sure Women’s Pioneer will be happy to work with you in the future.
We have worked with Campbell Tickell on a number of occasions, most recently on the appointment of our Chief Executive. We selected CT as a result of a competitive process. They impressed us from the start throughout with their knowledge, and expertise, experience of and success in appointing at this level, combined with depth of reach into the sector, with enough into sectors more widely (the latter which was important to us in this appointment).
From the start they showed that they wanted to “walk in our shoes”, to find the right person for our role, and this way of working came across strongly all the way along. Their back up administration was superb, they shouldered a lot of this and it was all spot on. The search, and attraction strategy worked well. There was contact with the lead consultant (Gera Patel) throughout, who kept us briefed and ahead of things all the way along. The stages of the selection process were effective, it was the right mix to ensure we had a good field and the final selection event was well thought out, well designed and tested out all that was needed. We felt very effectively supported throughout. They presented to and worked with our key stakeholders in a highly professional and sensitive way.
What stood out for us was they were willing to push us to think about things we might not have thought of ourselves. They didn’t just “take our brief” but listened, and added a huge amount of value. We have a super appointee as a result. Thank you.
