I never thought I’d personally like a firm of headhunters, let alone be impressed by them. Deacon Search was refreshingly different. Paul’s knowledge and personal conduct was pivotal in my appraisal of the firm, and the firm of me, we both had absolute confidence in his judgment that this was a great match.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Deacon Search to others. From my point of view the most important things are to feel that a headhunter understands the practice and job spec, is someone you can feel comfortable with and who you can trust. I was very pleased to find Deacon Search exhibited those necessary qualities.

Scott is knowledgeable, professional and cool-headed and I knew that he would put my best interests above anything else. Uniquely for the industry, he is a listener and would not seek to dictate his agenda or timetable on the process. His approach is thorough and carefully-considered and he is very tactically astute in negotiating for his clients.
Paul provided a very professional service. He was very supportive, always available and provided sensible and realistic advice. I am very happy to recommend him.
I have come to rely on Deacon Search: not only for their professionalism and the quality of their service, but also for their market knowledge and insights.
