Mike McIntyre MBE

Managing Partner, Xenogenix Ltd

“Rainford Berry were recommended to me by a mutual contact when Adoption UK was looking to recruit a Finance Director. I knew that there were potential barriers to getting the right person and I needed to move quickly. Ian Berry’s approach is unique in my experience, very customer focused, and he took the time to get to know me and my charity and our specific requirements. Ian guaranteed that he would find us the right FD and he did.”

Hugh Thornbery CBE

Chief Executive at Adoption UK

Ian ensured that every step of my recruitment was seamless. He took great care to ensure I was matched to the right role and expectations were aligned, particularly in the preliminary stages in getting to know my needs. I would highly recommend Ian as a recruiter, his communication is prompt, precise and timely, and he invests himself fully in joint success for candidate and client.

Simon Brown

Airport Operations IT Leader,Heathrow

“Ian is a very skilled and hard-working recruitment professional. I have engaged Ian on several occasions to find staff across a broad range of construction industry positions. In one of my former roles he met a very specific brief of finding construction industry specialists with Airport experience. In that engagement his attention to detail and disciplined approach ensured that he provided a list of excellent candidates that met every aspect of the recruitment brief.”

Robert Brown

A highly experienced Board level executive with very strong capabilities in software and construction management.

“I’ve had 2 roles to fill at Heathrow in the last year, I asked Ian to help me with both of these. One of the attributes that I admire most about Ian is that he listens, on both occasions he understood the requirements of the role and the qualities that needed to be inherent in a candidate for them to be successful. The people he put forward were all suitable for the roles and the 2 people that were successful are performing well, having been with the company for just under a year.

Philip Harper

“I can highly recommend Ian and wouldn’t hesitate in requesting his services again. Friendly and professional, he took the time to understand me as a candidate prior to finding opportunities that were relevant and pertinent.” It’s been a pleasure to get to know Ian and I will be delighted to use him in the future.”

Liam Tumulty

Application Consultant at COINS

“I’ve worked with Ian on a number of specialist roles that other agencies have struggled to fill. Ian’s approach is professional, thorough and most importantly he is a subject matter expert in his field, which from a client perspective is very refreshing. Ian communicates regularly and more importantly knows our business and with this in mind, is able to select candidates with not only the correct skillset but also looks at the personality fit that would align within our business culture. Ian is a great example of a successful recruiter and has been an instrumental part of creating a number of teams within our business.”

Ian helped us to fill a particularly difficult role within our organisation this year. Ian demonstrated an honest and genuine interest in our business and his solid comprehension of what we were looking for, coupled with his focused and resolute approach to finding a solution, meant that we had this role filled within 2 weeks of engaging with him. I would also like to share that Ian’s follow-up and after-care have been exemplary. I would not hesitate to recommend his expertise if you are looking to work with a professional recruiter who has a personal, honest and can-do approach. Thanks again for your help Ian.
