Godliman has helped us build out new areas of our business, providing in-depth market knowledge to assist our thinking and approach to internalisinng investment strategies. These have sometimes been new areas for them as well as for us but I have trusted their search process to uncover excellent candidates who fit our asset-owning culture and are capable of delivering in the role. I have worked with Rupert for over 20 years and have always felt confident that Godliman's extensive experience, thorough process and sound judgement will deliver what we need. Testament to this is that all their placements are excellent additions to our team and are thriving.

We have always prided ourselves on our distinctive culture so it has been important to work with a firm that recognises how critical it is for us to find people, regardless of the highest technical or personal skills, that will fit with that culture and how we operate. Godliman does just that, they conduct an almost scientific research process that ensures ongoing comprehensive coverage of the whole market to find the best candidate for us and who will have the best chance of success at the firm. In turn, this is matched with the necessary high-level insight and analytical skills from the experience and caliber of the Godliman team.
