What they say about CIPFA-Penna

"Having tried and failed more than once to recruit to my head of finance post, I commissioned CIPFA/Penna to help with executive search and shortlisting. Philippa Watkins provided super support and advice with this. I was particularly impressed by her ability to understand my business need, her handling of potential applicants and honest assessments/feedback. The new recruit has proven to be a perfect fit for my organisation and I would highly recommend Philippa and CIPFA/Penna for any recruitment, especially posts that have proven challenging to fill."
