“A small note, though ‘big’ in terms of a recommendation for HR Heads – Jen and her team have been amazing in providing strong and credible candidates when needed and I would suggest reaching out if you have any people needs in the space. Great knowledge, lots of experience and good networks – definitely worth a conversation.” – Head of HR
“I would always turn to HR Heads when looking to recruit talented, commercially focused HR professionals. Why? Well, they go that step further to challenge your thinking and truly get ‘under the skin’ of what you are seeking to find. I would honestly say they are the best senior HR recruiter on the South Coast, particularly with their coaching abilities and all-around good advice! I cannot recommend HR Heads enough. If you’re thinking of changing roles or looking to recruit for a senior HR leader then you will be well placed in HR Heads’ capable hands.” – Group HR Director
“HR Heads were able to provide an excellent shortlist of great candidates. They demonstrated a deep understanding of the business and my requirements and all candidates were very well briefed. Finding the right new hire was a rapid and rewarding experience and HR Heads were extremely communicative, constructive, and responsive throughout the process.” – Director of International Human Resources
“HR Heads’ approach is exceptional, they recently recruited our Head of HR; all the candidates nailed our requirements and exceeded our expectations. Their advice was surgically precise and ensured that none of our time was wasted. For once we feel the recruitment fee was worth every penny. Would definitely use HR Heads again, and wish they worked in every discipline!” – CEO
“HR Heads display that rare mix of expert, genius and 100% service delivery, which is why they have such a great reputation in the HR resourcing market. They took the time to get to know a business and individuals within it for that time when they were called upon. Whether it’s through their excellent, thought-provoking HR Heads Breakfast Forums or just getting in touch to see how things are, this ‘light touch’ approach certainly pays off.
“I had an immediate need for an HR Manager, having received the resignation of my current person in post. The timescale was short, only a month. Within days, HR Heads were able to present an excellent shortlist, featuring a range of candidates that were immediately or shortly available. I am very pleased to say that less than four weeks after the search started, I now have an excellent HR Manager in the post! I could not ask for more in a resourcing partner.” – HR Director
“HR Heads have placed several Business Partners with me and so far all have proved to be excellent hires. They take time to really understand the business they are placing into and look not only for the skills and experience fit but also for team and culture fit. I’d highly recommend working with HR Heads.” – People Transformation Director
“Jen is my go-to person when I am looking to recruit for HR roles. She is knowledgeable about the market and about her candidates and is always honest, which I completely appreciate.

“Thanks, Jen, for finding us such a great candidate!” – People Business Partner

“Rosie was great to work with, very honest and delivered quality candidates.” – Regional HR Business Partner
“I’ve worked with a number of recruiters over the years – and as someone with a recruitment background, I can honestly say that Rosie has been an absolute pleasure to partner with and she exceeded my jaded expectations.
“From the start, Rosie took the time to understand my needs, managed my expectations, kept me well informed throughout the process and above all ensured that I felt (and that we were) supported – and she connected me with some brilliant candidates when I was beginning to lose hope given the high demand for HR professionals right now.
“Thank you, Rosie!” – HR Business Partner

Jen is an absolute joy to work with, she really understood me and took the time to build a credible and supportive relationship. This is what recruitment should be.” – Senior Director of Global Talent
“Jen has been fantastic. She has not only supported opening my eyes to roles and industries I would have never considered but has supported me in identifying a role and organisation I would truly love – in a sector I had never even considered before. Throughout the process she has been extremely supportive and personable – feeling genuinely invested in both the candidate and doing the best for the organisation she is working with. A pleasure to work with.” – People Business Partner
“Jen Gaster has been one of the best recruiters I have worked with. She truly takes the time to understand exactly what you are looking for in your next role but also the type of person her client is also looking for and find what works best for both parties. Jen has excellent communication skills and I was never left wondering or waiting to hear back from her. Unlike a lot of recruiters if Jen thinks a role may not be quite right for you, or if she feels the skills or experience may not be quite right for her client, she is very open and honest about it and will not just send your details over to the company. I have had a great experience with her and would highly recommend her.” – TA Specialist
“As usual, Jen was concise and precise in the way she guided me through applying for this role. Understanding my own needs in a way which is unmatched in the local market, she articulated very clearly where this role could or could not meet them. She also demonstrated a very in-depth knowledge of the working culture this role was within.” – Employee Experience Manager
“Jen has been great to talk to. She is completely relatable and talking to her doesn’t feel like you are just someone to make her commission or just another number. She is funny and brings her personality with her calls. I would definitely recommend her.” – People & Culture Manager
“If you get a chance to work with Rosie in either sourcing for your team, or if you are looking for that new role, then consider yourself very lucky! Rosie is an absolute joy to work with both as a client (being a trusted recruitment partner) and I have been also lucky enough to have her represent me.
“At a senior level, it can be difficult to find a trustworthy agency that you know will represent you honestly and find the role to match with what you are looking for, industry/culture/skills/passion. Rosie has a unique and very trustworthy manner and gives you the confidence that you know your career is in safe hands.
“She is also excellent at understanding all client needs and has a great ability to find just the right person to fit the role you are looking to fill. She has a consultative, enquiring and genuine interest in organisations, their growth and development and understands what is important to them from a people growth perspective.
“She thrives in helping high growth environments to find those elusive consultants, managers and leaders that are difficult to source for.
“I would not hesitate to recommend Rosie, and HR Heads, for all of your people/HR team needs.” – Head of People & Culture
“I was well briefed by Rosie, both when the role was first introduced to me and before I met with the company. It appeared to me they too were well briefed about me before we met.” – Compensation Specialist
“Rosie was a delight to work with in securing me my next role. She handled the end o end process very professionally and in a timely manner, providing regular and constant feedback throughout.” – Interim HR Director
“Rosie is totally professional yet is incredibly personable, and approachable and you do feel she has your best interests at heart. Everything she told me about the role was spot on. If I were to be looking for a role in the future Rosie would be the first person I would call.” – HR & Payroll Administrator
