“I have worked with Rhiannon and her team at Hunter Healthcare over the past six years both as Chair of South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust and as Chair of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. She has assisted me in the recruitment of four Non-Executive Director appointments, one of which was a Chair of Audit role and two of which were for a financially qualified Non-Executive Director to sit on a Finance and Investment Committee. All the candidates that I have appointed with the help of Hunter Healthcare have thrived in their roles and have provided me and the Board with very good service. This is in no small part due to the work that Hunter put in with me and my colleagues to ensure that we looked for and found people who were a good ‘fit’.”

Peter Molyneux

Chair | Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

“We recently concluded a successful search with Cath for a European sales leadership position. It was a pleasure to work with Cath, and without hesitation I would recommend and work again with Cath. Cath listened to our requirements, was very responsive, very transparent, and did a nice job representing both sides in the equation so that the process was energizing. Cath was able to navigate the geographic distances as I am based in LA, our home office is in Quebec City, Canada, and our candidates were in Belgium. Cath was valuable to me as she gently guided me on the cultural differences in the hiring process between the US and Europe. She is as skilled and talented as they come in her field.”

“Hunter Healthcare were the search partner for my first CEO role. As an internal candidate, I knew the organisation well, but they brought insights and perspectives that allowed me to really get to know the trust through the lens of a prospective CEO candidate. Hunter’s approach is refreshingly different – by the time I got to the final interview, I was clearer on my unique attributes, motivations for the role and priorities if appointed. This was down to their candidate centric engagement from initial contact, ongoing support with relevant information, access to officers in the system as well as designing an assessment and selection process that enabled each candidate to be the best version of themselves. I have also used Hunter Healthcare to appoint to key roles in my Executive team. They were able to attract experienced high calibre candidates to apply for the roles and were genuinely responsive to the needs of my organisation in the way the process was managed from start to finish. Their approach was to find candidates who not only met the role specification but created the right balance of skills and approaches in the team. I recommend them without hesitation.”

Chief Executive Officer | University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust

“I have been really impressed by the work of Hunter Healthcare in general and Janice Scanlan in particular over a number of recent assignments that we have asked them to work on for us. The quality of candidates has been high, the search thorough and professional and most importantly there has been a personal approach both with us as clients but also with the candidates themselves.”


Sir Andrew Cash

Chair | Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board

“Cath is a very proactive and engaged consistently to ensure alignment on needs during our recruiting engagements. She brings different perspectives to the table and really behaves like a thought partner in the recruiting process, challenging you to look at different profile types and think differently about the specific needs you are recruiting for. Her positive, proactive and engaging style make her an ideal partner for senior recruiting projects. I enjoyed working with Cath I feel she was really invested throughout in understanding our business, team and cultural needs.”

Vice-President - Business Development | Diagnostics

“I want to take this opportunity to thank Brendan on behalf of the Board at PML for the assistance that he gave us in appointing a new Chief Executive. This is the first time we have used an organisation such as Hunter Healthcare for this purpose and the experience has been positive throughout. We all enjoyed working with Brendan, and found him to be professional, responsive and thorough. The outcome is one that we have confidence in. We would unreservedly recommend Hunter Healthcare and would be happy to provide personal and organisational testament to Brendan’s work at any point.”
