The Paddock Project

"Wild Search have been a pleasure to work with. From the way they helped develop the rather crude ideas we had of the candidate we were looking for to the production of a really strong field of contenders, Wild Search were attentive and efficient but with the lightness of touch that meant we never felt crowded. I also sense that unsuccessful candidates went away feeling good about the experience; surely the toughest test of a selection process."

Sir Robert Fry, Chairman, Sherborne Arts Trust (re. Director of the Paddock Project)

CTC

“Wild Search developed a clear understanding of our business, and as a result were able to provide us with a diverse and talented longlist of candidates.  Wild Search also supported us through the shortlisting, interview and appointment processes, and provided an excellent service throughout.  They were also a pleasure to work with, and understood the distinctive challenges of a not-for-profit organisation recruiting for a commercial role.” 

Gordon Seabright, former Chief Executive, CTC (Now Cycling UK)

“He demonstrated a real ability to not only understand what it was we were looking for, but to help shape our thinking and our views. He and his team put together a shortlist of extremely impressive candidates, who all fitted the specification from both a skills and values perspective. We were therefore in the envious position of having a very difficult decision to make.”

The Children’s Trust

“They did so with great insight and knowledge of the needs of our organisation. Edward Wild’s very personable approach means that they work hard to truly understand the intricacies of our governance requirements (ie, running a school within a charitable organisation). We subsequently asked Wild Search to find our new Headteacher and this happened successfully, with a Consultant Headteacher also found to tide us over in the interim. A happy client.” 

Dalton Leong, Chief Executive, The Children’s Trust

"The Wild Search team stood out a mile in terms of experience, connectivity within the charity and not-for-profit sectors, combined with an imaginative proposal to working with our Board of Trustees and to find our new Chief Executive Officer. The process was well managed from start to final offer and ultimately successful recruitment of the best individual. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Wild Search to other organisations as a first class recruitment partner."
