"I have used Bailey Fisher for my last 3 senior appointments and each time it has been a very positive process and outcome. Andrew completed the searches in a timely manner, and took the time to understand the brief and what we were looking for so the resulting shortlists were very good. In fact for the recruitment of our CFO we had an exceptionally strong short list. In all cases Bailey Fisher obtained acceptance from our first choice candidate. I would use Bailey Fisher again and feel very happy to recommend them."
