Hunter are by far the leading firm in executive resourcing in today's NHS. They seem to be the only firm that genuinely grasps what good looks like and install the right processes around candidate diligence and previous track record. I personally buy into their values of building long-lasting relationships, with the client and candidate being at the forefront of their priorities

Jayne Mee,
Director of People and Organisation Development, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
Hunter Healthcare, and Rhiannon in particular, were extremely professional and efficient when we as an NHS Trust had to commission a search to generate a list of candidates to allow the TDA to appoint a Chair to our Trust. In what is a highly challenging situation, with many conflicting pressures, I was impressed as to how Rhiannon not only generated a healthy long list of credible candidates (when most Trusts in a similar situation were struggling to achieve this) but how she kept myself and the Trust as fully involved as possible given the restrictions. I felt she included the Trust throughout the process and treated us as an equal partner. She provided the TDA with a credible and diverse shortlist to make their appointment. I have used Hunter Healthcare subsequently for another hard to recruit managerial appointment based on this experience .

"Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust has used Hunter Healthcare in the past year to support the appointment of a number of very senior positions, including Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and Director of Change. We have found Hunter Healthcare to have been excellent and very responsive to our requirements. They have known exactly what is required by taking the time to fully understand the organisation, its culture and longer-term vision, ensuring the candidates presented at long- and shortlist stage are of high calibre and quality. We would seek to use Hunter Healthcare again should we have any further very senior posts to appoint into. In my opinion the team bring value for money and an efficient tailor-made service to the organisation that they are supporting. They are certainly raising the bar in NHS recruitment"

"We have used Hunter Healthcare for the past four years and have been extremely impressed with their attitude and approach. It is refreshing to work with a growing company that has long-term relationships at heart. They really understand our requirements and they have supplied us with a significant number of high-calibre interims at all levels, getting the right candidate for our varied needs and being honest with us if they don’t have a natural fit is critical. They have always risen to the challenge. Integrity and honesty are important to our organisation and those values are reflected in the approach used by Hunter Healthcare. We have a great partnership; their senior team works hard at developing close working links with my colleagues and I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Hunter Healthcare"
