People transform organisations so selecting the right search firm is essential for any business. We know that what we do really matters. Our experience, category and functional expertise enables us to offer a thoroughly professional service to both clients and candidates. Whether you are a global corporate or SME we will ensure that we apply the same level of rigour and expertise to each search.
We are experts in our specialist industries so we can work with you to develop an accurate and compelling candidate brief, project schedule and ease all parties through to successful completion.
When a bespoke solution is required we adopt a project approach to search. Typically, this is utilised when multiple hiring is required against a tight deadline.
We are hugely experienced at assessing the situation and producing a tailored solution to meet your needs. We will appoint an Account Director who will pull together all our resources and experience to produce a project plan and appoint a specialist account team.
Projects will often employ a range of resourcing techniques such as microsites; online advertising; social media and professional networking; market mapping; head hunting; and our existing networks.
I have known Oliver for a very long time, well before he started Campbell Reed and have used him and his company for recruitment , for advice and general discussions. I think very highly of him and his business and in particular his network of talent , his integrity and his focus on results. The most recent roles I have used him for were two quite different MD roles and the process resulted in two people who have been enormous successes and I would not hesitate in recommending him and his company.
I have been working with Campbell Reed for over 6 years now and they have always delivered a fantastic service. Their team are always professional, responsive and show a really good understanding of what we are looking for in terms of candidate profiles and understanding the personality behind the CV. It is this personalised approach alongside excellent industry knowledge and connections that sets them apart, I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
President EMEA & ASPAC
I have worked with Chris on a number of occasions on executive-level searches and greatly appreciate his partnership. He takes a pragmatic and flexible approach and works hard to understand the needs of the business and the role to deliver the very best candidates for the opportunity. He has a wide reach of candidates and actively engages with parties on both sides to effectively manage the search process. He can adapt to changing timescales, requirements, and search parameters, and does so without any sense of frustration or fuss. I enjoy working with him and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Director of People, Europe
Campbell Reed always provide thoroughly thoughtful and professional advice - identifying brilliant candidates and managing the process of execution selection and recruitment smoothly and efficiently. Their insight and knowledge of the broad FMCG marketplace means that they can challenge both selectors and candidates into making creative, original but ultimately successful choices.
I worked with Chris and the Campbell Reed team over several months when he led the sourcing of candidates to stand-up a complete Sales & Marketing leadership team for the newly carved-out Scholl's Wellness Company. Chris was instrumental in the successful hiring of an SVP Sales (responsible for global sales excluding the Americas), a VP Marketing, and 4 Country Managers (for France/Benelux, DACH/Poland, UK, Italy), as well as a Director of International Distributor Sales. Overall, it was one of the most effective (& least painful) multi-position searches I've been involved in. I would recommend/work with Chris again in a heartbeat!!
Chris led a very successful search for multiple positions across functions and countries. He also had to develop job descriptions, titles, and salaries since I provided such little guidance. He delivered great people, on time and on budget.
Campbell Reed have consistently delivered for THIS, across several senior hires. We've been extremely happy with their ways of working, market knowledge and extensive networks, and would definitely recommend them to other FMCG brands.
Founder and Co-CEO, THIS
We've been using Campbell Reed for many years and they have always been a pleasure to work with. Most importantly they are also excellent at their jobs! They have been instrumental in helping us find the talent that's enabled Little Moons to grow so successfully. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
