Moon Consulting have worked with AgustaWestland in the past and our working relationship has been very positive. More recently, I know Vanessa Moon, Director of Moon Consulting, from my work with the CBI, where she came across very well. This positive impression is also shared by other Members of the South West CBI Council.
Martin Lyne, Managing Director, Alexandra Workwear
It has always been very positive working with Moon Consulting and we have a business relationship covering some 15 years. Whenever we have recruitment needs, Moon Consulting have a strong grasp of the requirements and depth of knowledge to supply the right candidate. They are very active in the South West business community.
Phil Smith, Managing Director, Business West
Moon Consulting are very active in the business community and very well connected. They probably have the second best black book apart from Business West!
Adam Tavener, Chairman, Clifton Asset Management
I chose to use Moon Consulting after a recommendation by a Private Equity contact to recruit the head of our Banking Relationship Division. They were professional, well connected and concerned to listen carefully to a brief.
Chris Jones, former VP & Head of Aerospace, Cyient
Vanessa is enormously experienced and is always very open, helpful and approachable. I have sought her career advice a number of times over the years and found her very supportive. I respect how she has built Moon Consulting into a successful brand and business.
John Hirst, Chief Executive, Destination Bristol
Moon Consulting are known for being the ‘top-end' of recruitment. They are very well respected and highly regarded within the region.
In my opinion what makes Moon unique is their determination to break new ground and move businesses forward. You can see this in the events and workshops that they run, many of which I have attended.
DAN JONES, DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES, FALMOUTH UNIVERSITY
I have worked with Moon Consulting for over seven years and during that time Vanessa has assisted in sourcing high quality candidates for positions across two organisations that we were unable to source via our in house resourcing team due to the specific demands of the role and scarcity of candidates in the marketplace. These include: an Operations Director, a Director of Estates, Audit Manager and interim Finance Controller.
In all of these engagements I have found Vanessa to be extremely approachable and professional and she has always understood the requirements of the role and the importance of obtaining a cultural fit within the organisation. All candidates put forward have been of a high calibre and the subsequent appointments have been successful with the individuals appointed delivering the requirements of the position and building strong internal relationships.
Roger Humm, former Non Exec / Finance Director, Ixico
I have returned to Moon Consulting several times since first meeting Vanessa Moon and have always been very pleased with their performance. In my most recent recruitment of a Group Financial Controller for a London-based, AIM listed company Simon Quinn, Senior Executive Search Consultant worked diligently both in searching & screening, and in providing support to ensure the appointment of the right candidate.
Moon’s understanding of the role requirements and their access to a range of suitable candidates has served well in this London recruitment, as well as others in the South West and Wales.
Clive Hetherington, former Regional Director, Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking
Moon Consulting are always professional and knowledgeable. Vanessa has built a very capable team who have in depth knowledge of who’s who in South West Business
Tim Ward, Chief Executive, Quoted Companies Alliance
Moon Consulting and the Quoted Companies Alliance work in partnership to provide the QCA Search Service which offers recruitment services to our members.
Both organisations have built sound reputations based on delivering tailored services for members and clients, which is why we chose to collaborate on a bespoke executive recruitment service for senior board members in the UK.
Caroline Duckworth, Treasurer, The Society of Merchant Venturers
My personal experience has been very positive. I have found staff to be very helpful and friendly. I think the personal touch remains very important, being well connected approachable and open to constructive feedback.
Graham Miller, Chairman, Sutton Harbour Holdings
Moon have a very flexible and entrepreneurial style. They take time to understand a business and identify their main issues. They screen their candidates at a first interview before sending them to the client, which increases the chances of a close fit between client and candidate. Moon Consulting also have a large network and support the business community with joint projects such as the NED Network with TLT Solicitors
Chris How, Former Chief Executive, Swallowfield plc
Moon Consulting placed me in my current role. They are highly competent, have a great network and made the whole process comfortable and enjoyable.
Richard Green, Non-Exec Chairman of Technology Venture Partners
Moon Consulting can be relied upon to come up with a range of good candidates for both senior management roles across all functions as well as non-executive director options. They are a highly regarded local team, well connected and above all fun people.
Claire Bishop, former Finance Director, UNIT4 Business Software
UNIT4 Business Software limited has engaged Moon Consulting on a number of successful senior appointments. My personal experience with Moon Consulting related to a vacancy for a Financial Controller within my team. I have found working with Moon Consulting and in particular Vanessa Moon an easy and professional process.
Vanessa has taken the time to understand the role, the business and more importantly the culture to help provide solid candidates. The recruitment process was completed on-time and to spec and the individual recruited has been a valuable addition to the finance team. I would be happy to recommend Moon Consulting recruitment services.
