Candidates

  • “As a Procurement, professional I have worked with Russell Soan and Butler Ross for over 10 years both as a candidate seeking new opportunities and as a client seeking to recruit staff. I can honestly say that they are true experts in their profession. I myself have operated in the Defence and Aerospace sector for many years and I have always found their knowledge and networks to be excellent at assisting my requirements. Russell and his team offer a collaborative approach to recruitment that is backed up by the quality of the service they deliver with excellent communication throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Russell or Butler Ross as Procurement & Supply Chain recruitment experts.”

    Alan Davis – Procurement Manager

  • “Butler Ross excellently managed the journey to my placement in my current role at The Challenge. Their consultants maintained strong and effective communication throughout the process, offering much valued advice and support where needed – we talked through my CV in great depth and amended it appropriately to ensure that I have the right detail on it. I had many conversations with Kate in particular about exactly what I was looking for in my next role, and her understanding of that meant that she could successfully place me in a role that was exactly what I was looking for. The Butler Ross consultants supported me through all stages of the process, giving me a very detailed understanding of the organisation and the people that would be interviewing me, as well as future projects that they would want me to work on, so that I could prepare my answers accordingly. I would like to thank Kate & the Butler Ross team for their efforts and support during the recruitment process and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who might be looking for a new career.”

  • “Butler Ross has successfully secured me a fantastic position with one of the best employers in Hampshire, but in doing so, have also helped me to achieve a long standing, personal goal to work with this particular trust.

The consultants at Butler Ross have the drive, passion and sunny exterior which is vital in any recruitment position and I would be happy to recommend their services to friends and colleagues alike.”

    Tracey Constant – Sourcing Manager at Capita

  • "I have known Butler Ross for some time as a key provider for Procurement and Supply Chain expertise. I first started engaging with them in 2016, I have always been impressed by their enthusiastic approach and relationship building skills. The consultants take the time to listen, understand and demonstrate a genuine interest in me and leave me confident that they are best placed to serve my interests as well of those of the client. They work assiduously to ensure a good fit and maintain the relationships by demonstrating a real and practical interest in the needs of all parties. When one of the consultants contacted me initially to talk about an opportunity for an Interim Head of Procurement with one of her clients, I was not actively looking at that particular sector at the time, but they really took the time to understand my skills and experience and explain the client’s requirements. They did such a great job outlining this opportunity and the client to me that I had no hesitation in putting my name forward. I have not been disappointed the team at Butler Ross maintained excellent communication throughout the engagement, offering much valued advice and support where needed. This relationship has continued throughout the assignment, I have found the Butler Ross consultants to be very efficient, keen to provide an excellent service and play a key role in supporting my current role and of course the needs of the client. I would not hesitate to recommend Butler Ross as true Procurement and Supply Chain recruitment experts, indeed whenever the need arises either for me personally or in a client situation I have confidence that Butler Ross will be there to understand and support my needs.”

    Graham Ockendon, Interim Head of Procurement – Catalyst Housing

  • “Jonathan excellently managed the end to end journey of my eventual placement in my new company, McKesson. He maintained strong and effective communication throughout the process, offering much valued advice and support where needed. Unique to this success story was Jonathan's astute initial identification of my skills and desired career path, which enabled him to put me forward for a role that was exactly what I was looking for. I would like to thank Jonathan for his efforts and support during the recruitment process and I would definitely recommend him to my friends looking for a new career.”

    Adam Tzimas – Director of Analytics at McKesson

  • “Russell is very passionate about his work. He works fast and gets results. He uses any and all resources to give you a deep insight on all aspects of the position and keeps you in the loop throughout. Great person to work with.”

    Mazda Kasraeian – Material Controller at Mclaren Automotive

  • “During my recent job search, I dealt with several consultancies, none of which, came remotely close to matching Butler Ross’s expertise. From our very first conversation, their consultants provided sound knowledge, help and advice throughout the process. I felt they were with me every step of the way and without their input, I would have found the experience much more difficult. A huge number of consultancies could learn a great deal from their approach and methods used to manage candidates. A real pleasure to have worked together on the next chapter of my career.”

    Matthew Bullard, Contract Manager – City of Westminster

  • “Jonathan has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He truly listens to one's career objectives and priorities; and his insightfulness and expertise have helped find me a role that really match my criteria. He provides his full dedication and support from start to finish and I couldn't recommend him enough.”

    Dana Allawi – Sourcing Manager at Barclays

  • “Butler Ross have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I approached them when I was made redundant from London Borough of Hillingdon and they really listened to my career objectives and priorities; their insightfulness and expertise have helped find me a role that really matches my criteria. Their consultants gave me a thorough understanding of the company as well as the role, a full job description, including hits and tips about what the hiring managers would be looking for. Butler Ross provide full dedication and support from start to finish and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.”

    Daniel Tilbury, Category Manager – City of Westminster

  • “Butler Ross provided excellent support and guidance in my job search – we spoke a couple of times about my career aspirations and the companies that they had relationships with that might be suitable for me and what I was looking for. Their knowledge of the procurement market allowed them to provide me with a lot of information about the companies that I could work for, and we selected ICR as an employer that would be able to offer me exactly what I was looking for and they are an organisation that I was already very interested in. Their consultants supported me through the interview process with information about the job and what the hiring managers would want to see from me, and what the role would entail from the day that I joined. Their attention to detail and excellent relationship management skills made the process easy, hassle free and successful. Thank you for your support in finding me my new job.”

    Naimey Porge, Procurement Co-ordinator – Institute of Cancer Research

  • “Kate has successfully placed me in my current role and is excellent at what she does. She listened and worked with me to understand what I was looking for, unlike any other recruiters that have contacted me. Throughout the whole process, she has been following up on how I was getting on, from start to finish and even after the first few months in my new role. Which has been very much appreciated. Kate's consulting skills have been impeccable, making working with her stress free and enjoyable.”

    Astrid Weikop, Procurement Manager – The Challenge
