Ultimately produced quality candidates who have been true to the brief.
(Portico Capital)
Sophistication of thinking, accuracy to brief.
(Duke Street)
They communicated with us well through the process, allowing for a fast, efficient service and great shortlists of high calibre candidates.
(Smedvig Capital)
A tailored approach to meeting clients’ needs. They are keen to understand the business so that the cultural fit is right. They very carefully and efficiently pre-screen high quality candidates. In negotiation, they are always honest and objective and on the client’s side unlike some other firms. Professional, innovative and user-friendly is how I would describe them. 
(European Capital)
We had a very specific and difficult brief which the team at Freshminds went to great lengths to understand. From there they distilled an exceptional short list of candidates and reacted quickly and responsively to our needs saving us a great deal of time and effort. (Mobeus Private Equity) 
I just wanted to say that we have been thoroughly impressed with Freshminds. Bryony has been a delight and clearly our brief was understood and executed in exemplary fashion as every candidate sent has been on point.         (Mangopay)
