Cleeve Executive has made it their business to seek out and build a network of specialists who can instinctively diagnose business challenges and who have the ability to make pioneering contributions for maximum impact, as well as providing the leadership both to deliver the solution, but also leave behind the legacy of an upskilled, engaged and revitalised team
I have been a very satisfied customer and a very grateful candidate of Natasha’s over the past few years. I have no hesitation in recommending Cleeve Executive for recruitment and search assignments of all levels. The personal drive is considerable but their empathy for clients and candidates is outstanding. Seriously, if you want an organisation to work with, who fully understands the challenges of recruiting into a senior role you will really benefit from a chat with Cleeve Executive.
I have known Natasha over several years and despite the shortcomings of her sector, Cleeve Executive are one of the best in their field. We recently used Cleeve in a search for two senior individuals at Urban Growth Company. In both cases we were very pleased not least because of the care afforded to the candidates. Driven by a strong and positive value set, a meeting with Natasha and her colleagues at any stage would invaluable.
What did Cleeve Executive do: they got to know me and my organisation, they met and spoke to lots of my team but most importantly they listened to them and heard them. They spent a lot of time with me and got to understand how I worked and how much risk I was prepared to take. Most importantly Cleeve Executive builds trust and this allows and enables them to challenge their clients thinking but in a supportive way. It is rare to find an organisation who invest themselves in your business and this is what Cleeve Executive does. They follow this up by sharing their thinking too so they are very adept at partnering with organisations to deliver.
