What our clients say about working with us:

“Philip did an excellent job in both identifying the key requirements of the candidate and a need which the employer hadn’t even realised existed – in other words he provided real added value – and in subsequently managing the process with discretion, diplomacy and good humour.”

“I first met Philip Seager in 2000, whilst employed in a corporate development role in the healthcare industry. He encouraged me to take a broader look at opportunities for career progression including professional services firms and introduced me to Deloitte, which I subsequently joined as an Assistant Director. Since joining Deloitte, Philip has been key in the recruitment of a number of high calibre individuals to the Healthcare and Life Sciences team, which has contributed significantly to Deloitte’s success in the sector and my advancement to partner. I would gladly recommend Philip to anyone looking to work with a recruitment consultant.”

“I used Alan Mitchell on a difficult mandate that we were working, they got through a thorough and relevant short list together very quickly. They were able to get across a number of good candidates and we were very happy with the successful hire.”

“I’ve had a strong relationship with Alan Mitchell for almost ten years and I have always found them to be friendly and highly efficient. I have mandated them on a number of differing assignments and they have always provided top quality candidates and dealt with all process issues speedily and effectively all the way through recruitment”

“During 2011 I asked the team at Alan Mitchell to work on two different recruitment projects for my team at Evolution. These roles have been at Director level where we successfully recruited a sector head, and at the AD level where we hired into our corporate broking team. The service from Alan Mitchell has been very efficient, without wasting my time with superfluous CVs and candidates, and I will certainly be continuing to work with Alan Mitchell in the future.”

“Philip has completed a couple of executive searches for me & my previous company with successful results and quality hires. I would recommend him & certainly use his expertise again.”

“Chris has a brilliant knowledge of the Listed Futures & Options industry…..he knew more about who was working where and doing what than me. We gave him a mandate and 24 hours later he provided us with the candidate we eventually hired. We gave him a second mandate and would you believe it 24 hours later he delivered again. He is an excellent person to work with, very efficient, honest and he clearly knows what he’s doing. We will always approach Alan Mitchell before any other agency”

“I met Philip in early October 2015, soon after another disheartening interaction with another recruitment firm that lost interest in me too quickly; something my colleagues and I agree can put you off the job hunt entirely. He invited me to the Alan Mitchell offices and interviewed me thoroughly before sending back through a summary assessment of my situation and the roles I would prefer. Barely a few weeks later he had secured me an interview with my now current employer; an employer that suits me entirely. It was clear he paid a great deal of attention to the things I said in putting me forward for a role I may not have otherwise found. He was incredibly attentive and always followed up after every interaction I had with the firm. This level of care and dedication is extremely rare in the industry and unique to Philip’s personality. He is completely sensitive to just how daunting switching a career can be and I have since meeting him had the most pleasant experience in all my years of work. He has certainly restored my faith in the system and I am extremely grateful to him for introducing me to a new future. “
