Words from Candidate and Partners
I worked with Neil when I had to hire Data Scientists for Teralytics….Neil was one of the few head-hunters who managed to place any candidates with us and his candidates were impressive colleagues after they joined us. Neil took the time to understand our culture and read beyond the job descriptions to understand candidates who were suitable for us. He knew what was unique about our company and positioned accordingly to candidates. It was never about making a deal for the sake of deal-making but finding the suitable match between the candidate’s aspirations and the company’s growth. For that reason, I highly recommend Neil to companies and candidates!
Neil found me on LinkedIn and helped me through the interview process at Airtasker. We talked every step of the way so that I would know what to expect of the next stage and to make me feel comfortable. For someone who is leaving their home country that is very important! Thanks for all the support Neil, I can literally say you changed my life 🙂
Neil’s been a wonderful recruitment partner to Canva. He took the time to really understand our business, technical requirements, and where we set the bar (somewhere up in the stratosphere). He’s tenacious and worked insanely hard to really lock-in exactly what we were looking for — and he delivered. In the early days, where each hire carries substantially more risk, he helped us bring on board some amazing engineers that continue to smash goals year on year. His honest, ethical, and straight-forward communication approach puts him miles ahead of his competitors. I can count on three fingers the number of recruiters partners that I actually rate. Neil is one of them, I highly recommend him, irrespective of whether you’re an up-and-coming startup (like Canva was) or a larger organization looking to raise the bar.
Neil is THE best recruiter I’ve ever worked with. He puts all other recruiters to shame. He has an in-depth understanding of technology and often finds candidates that not only fits our tech requirements but also, our company culture. He’s helped me build the MoneySmart Engineering team (from hiring our CTO to our full stack developers). If I had to sum him up in 3 words – Neil is genuine, patient and very hardworking. Thank you Neil, you kick ass!
Neil is one of the best recruiters that I was working with. He has a unique blend of technical knowledge and natural curiosity which allows him to profile candidates more thoroughly than his competitors. I would have no hesitation to recommend Neil to any company, client or business partner.
Neil is absolutely one of the most professional tech recruiters I have ever know.
He is kind, sincere, knows the IT business well, and actually thinks for your best interest.
Neil helped me with the process of securing my new role and was super supportive all the way through.
Neil was very supportive during all my process, he was worried on how I was feeling and made me feel comfortable. He doesn’t want to have me hired at any price, He wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing to me. This is what I expect from a professional and responsible recruiter, and definitely Neil is one of those
The best way to build an in-house recruitment practice is to have at your disposal an arsenal of solid technical recruiters who know our quality standards – hiring the top 5% of software engineering talent means that we may have to go through hundreds of candidates. Neil has achieved the best rates for placement of tech talent in Asia Pacific, with 30% of candidates successfully hired, compared to the current industry average of less than 20% who are not able to clear the first robust coding interview. I have worked closely with him to relocate global talent from China, Indonesia, India, and Thailand. These engineers not only are great hires, they add to the culture and influence our teams positively. He quickly gets up to speed in complex hiring needs with time-sensitive requirements, and his engaging, humorous manner brings joy in a startup environment where stress levels may be high.
I was hunted down by Neil and moved from Saint-Petersburg, Russia to Singapore. I didn’t think about relocation at all when Neil contacted me, just decided to give it a try and somehow I live in another part of the world now 🙂 It was a real pleasure working together – I was fully aware of the current state and the whole process, got many valuable hints and there always was a feeling that he cares (which is a rare thing in HR, at least in my experience). Being obsessed with programming, I value professionals in any sphere and Neil is definitely one of the best in his field. Also, he is a very nice-to-work-with guy. Thank you!
Neil is brilliant! He contacted me telling about a job opportunity in Germany, at first I was not really interested and I had never considered living in Germany before, then Neil started explaining the company’s business model and products, but his explanation was so rich and full of details that he got my attention. Then I decided to give it a try, and Neil was there through the whole process, always in touch with valuable advices, even sharing his own experiences, and so he earned my trust. Now I’m here in Berlin with a great job, I wouldn’t have made it this far without Neil’s support. Thank you, Neil.
