what they say about us

It was a pleasure to work with Imogen who was helpful and collaborative throughout the recruitment process. She was keen to understand Young Roots, and what we needed in this important role for us. We are delighted with our new member of the team, and Imogen has kept in touch and had a genuine interest in the development of our work.

Jo Cobley
Chief Executive, Young Roots

From our first meeting, I felt Robbie understood the role and my priorities for the FP&A team. Based on this, he was able to source high-quality candidates very quickly.

Using the retained process of shortlisting and conducting first interviews saved me time at the initial stages, but I felt engaged throughout, with regular updates. The report provided after the first interviews gave me an excellent feel for the candidates and their experience, enabling me to select the four I felt would be the best fit for an interview with a panel comprising finance and non-finance colleagues. We ended the process with two solid and appointable candidates.

We have appointed a fantastic person with a great range of skills and experience, and I am delighted with the outcome.

Rachel Hewitt
Chief Financial Officer, ClientEarth

I have found Robbie & Leanne very professional and supportive to work with. They spent the time to get to know Independent Age and our finance team, and what we were really looking for in each role. They presented a good set of candidates in each case and have been straightforward and helpful in all the advice they have provided to date. Consequently, we have hired some really great colleagues who are helping the team make a real difference for older people.

Karen Thompson
Interim Director of Finance and Governance, Independent Age

Leanne is personable and professional and was able to both share great insights from her experience and facilitate connections with prospective employers from her network. Leanne invested time up front to understand the type of opportunity I was looking for, immediately grasped my requirements, and only presented potential opportunities that were a good match. I am very grateful to Leanne and would recommend her to anyone looking for finance opportunities in the charitable sector. Thanks Leanne!

Eve Strong
Finance Business Partnering, FP&A

Moving from Australia to London I knew getting my first job was going to be the hardest. A lot of recruiters overlooked my previous experience and quickly tried to devalue my worth in order to get me a job and swiftly move on. Jen took the time to understand my experience and knowledge in order to make sure I was put into a role that was well-suited for all parties. The result of her hard work was exactly the role I was seeking at the initial rate I was striving for. She has continued to remain in contact making the transition even easier. Highly recommend Jen to anyone seeking a new job in London as she will take the time to put you in the perfect role.

Brendan Wikman
Financial Analyst, Conde Nast

I have no hesitation in recommending James. During my job search James has been an excellent recruiter to work with. James invests time in getting to know you as a person and understanding what roles you are looking for. He then proactively seeks to find suitable roles and keeps in touch regularly while he does this.

When he finds suitable roles and puts you forward, he provides a first-rate briefing on the company, the people you will meet and the role itself so you are thoroughly prepared for the interview, even meeting up immediately prior to the interview to go through any last minute questions or concerns.

James has a delightful manner and it is always a pleasure to meet him. Anyone asking me for recruitment advice around interim finance roles will be pointed in James’s direction.

Paul Brinkley
Group Financial Controller, Genius Sports

Harry placed me in my current role and previously placed me in another role. Harry’s knowledge of the market is impressive, combined with his technical understanding makes him a great consultant to work with.

Hassan Aden
Interim Financial Consultant, PFA

Thank you James for supporting me in finding a great job opportunity. James is an excellent communicator, he understood my strengths as a candidate and was able to find the right match with the hiring organisation. I appreciated his friendly approach to the recruitment process.

Cristina Popovici
Finance Transformation Lead

On more than one occasion, Erin helped me recruit for positions that had proven very difficult to fill. She has excellent communication skills, truly listens to her clients’ needs, is very proactive and perseverent. I can’t recommend Erin highly enough.

Ecaterina Strachinariu
CFO at SportCity

Steve was a wonderful recruiter, highly motivated with a clear understanding of my requirements. He clearly stood out for his ability to review people, and roles and asses suitability intuitively. He took full ownership of the process and led all stages of the recruitment process following up on every step. His enthusiasm and pragmatic approach have made him a trusted advisor.

Athanasios Pythagoras
Senior Finance Professional

​​It has been an absolute pleasure working with Callum - Through the recruitment process Callum was full of integrity, really straightforward and always did exactly what he said he'd do - no smoke, no mirrors, just really, really professional. I'd welcome the opportunity to work with Callum again, and would highly recommend him.

Paul Sanders
Chief Transformation Officer

Janey was very considerate, and clearly an expert in my field of work. I trusted her to place me in a role that whilst providing me with the challenge I crave, would also respect the balance of being a working mum. Thanks, Janey! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for your next job search.

Jamesina Sainsbury
Director Consulting

I have been working with Robbie for about 9 months and in that time he has sourced several finance analysts and business partners. He has proven over this time that he understands the needs of the customer very well. I find Robbie to be personable, professional and very responsive. I would recommend you give Robbie a call if you are looking for Finance staff.

Brian Newcombe
Head of FP&A, Ofcom

Working with Leanne and Robbie has been a real pleasure. Altum’s systems and processes have been very transparent and frank. Their candidate briefings have been some of the best I have seen and their honest, friendly approach has exceeded my expectations. When a first round of recruitment of my new Head of Finance didn’t find an appropriate candidate, we just went at it again and took that as a learning experience. I now have an excellent appointment in post. Altum very much met my expectations, and pleasingly Altum are also very well regarded by the colleagues we appointed.

Richard Barker
Director of Finance & Resources, Goodenough College

Robbie provided excellent support in helping me understand my needs and requirements in relation to the market. This resulted in a very strong list of candidates for what was a fairly senior, niche role thus providing multiple viable candidates that could fill the post. I would recommend Robbie for future recruitment needs.

James Robertson
Head of Finance Business Partnering, Shaw Trust

I have worked with Leanne and Robbie over a number of years. They helped me find a great role at the Shaw Trust. They were both very pleasant and easy to work with. They knew which roles matched my skills and career goals and didn't send me roles that weren't a good fit. They have also helped me fill roles within my team; they found a good selection of candidates for a highly specialist role and were responsive to my feedback as we worked out what type of person was needed.

Louise Barker
Senior Finance Business Partner, Shaw Trust

Working with Robbie and the Altum team over the years has been a joy! Robbie is incredibly knowledgeable, engaging and a breath of fresh air from talking to other recruiters.

Together we have worked on both financial roles and strategy setting for new teams and then recruiting the necessary candidates. My primary function was Finance, and later I also had the responsibility of Data. With Robbie and the Altum team’s help we established a very successful department that are helping drive the Charity forward. This showed to me the versatility of Altum, their willingness to explore new areas, but more importantly the strength of the relationship we had established between RMHC and Altum.

One of the reasons I keep using Altum is the personal advice and help they offer. Throughout the process, I will always have a discussion with Robbie or the team about the potential candidates and any concerns. I feel fully engaged throughout and am confident their shortlisting will meet my requirements. I have been consistently impressed by Altum’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and equality, which has been particularly evidenced in the diverse backgrounds of the many candidates shortlisted for our roles and ultimately placed with us. I appreciate the time they spend with the candidates too, to help ensure a good match is found from both sides.

It is rare to find recruiters that have a great Charity background and share that Charity ethos too. It certainly helps knowing they understand how a Charity works, what the needs are and then also support so many Charities too. It’s a refreshing change and makes the challenge of a new hire within the Charity world so much easier

Isabel Dart
Director of Finance and Technology, Ronald Mcdonald House Charities.

Altum Consulting have been a long-established resourcing provider to the International Finance Team at the British Red Cross over the years. They have been incredibly responsive and dedicated to find us the right candidates for our roles. Leanne in particular has been incredibly committed to understanding our needs and capacity requirements. I would highly recommend their services and I look forward to their continued level of service in the years to come.

Jason Gray
Head of International Finance, British Red Cross

We have partnered with Steve at Altum on multiple occasions to secure high-calibre finance professionals for my team. His recruitment style and attention to detail has helped us find candidates that not only meet the experience criteria, but also fit extremely well culturally. I have no hesitation recommending Steve & Altum’s services to anyone looking to improve their finance team.

David Jones
Group Finance Director of Montagu Evans

I have just worked with Jen whilst looking for a new role and this was an absolute pleasure from start to finish! Jen really took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for, communicated well with me, advocated for me and very quickly set me up with an interview for an ideal role. I felt that the hiring manager had been made aware of my circumstances well and the whole process was incredibly smooth. Above all I was really pleased by Jen’s genuinely friendly, positive attitude and I am excited to start my new job! Thank you Jen, I look forward to working with you again in the future.
