At Construction Industry Federation, we partnered with Brightwater Executive for the recruitment of a senior director position in the Federation. We found Brightwater Executive to be very professional, efficient and effective in sourcing suitable candidates for the role, in facilitating a quality shortlist of candidates for interview and their assistance in the final selection process for the successful candidate.
Hubert FItzpatrick, COO, Construction Industry Federation
We have worked with Estelle Davis and Brightwater Executive for over 10 years now. A key part of our business strategy is the recruitment and retention of top talent and Estelle and Brightwater Executive have helped us achieve that. They have developed an in-depth knowledge of our business and culture over the years which has enabled them to consistently screen the market and put forward a shortlist of strong candidates. We are demanding and very particular as a client with a number of our placements being specialist roles which they were still able to deliver upon. They were also able to provide clear guidance on remuneration packages. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brightwater Executive and Estelle.

I recently worked with Alan in Brightwater Executive and was successful in securing my role. I found Alan extremely professional and a massive support to me throughout the process. He went above and beyond to help me understand the information that mattered for the role. He was available whenever I needed him for feedback on my questions and was always the first to check in with me pre and post interview. I highly recommend their recruitment service to any business or candidate.
Brian Howe, Head of eCommerce, Kilkenny Group
I found that my initial explorations to see whether I would be a good fit both personally and in terms of experience were very useful. These comfortable discussions helped me define in my own understanding whether I was right for the role and also explore in more detail what the role was and more importantly wasn't. Moving on from that and post shortlisting, I found Brightwater Executive's reseach and knowledge of the new CEO, the wider Group and importantly where both are in terms of progression/direction of travel was very useful. It was a huge decision for me to move and I think on reflection, Brightwater Executive played a strong part in helping me through that, being honest, clear and professional, with a very nice touch also. I have been on the other side for Board and Executive appointments and would like to let you know that my experience of Brightwater Executive has been excellent. Your insight, professionalism and supportive nature for both parties, acting as a bridge, was very good and from my experience, I can say that is not always the case with other agencies.
Finbarr Murray, DIrector of Corporate Affairs, Rehab Group
Our consultant has razor-sharp focus on the requirements of her corporate clients equal to a detailed assessment of individual clients' relative strengths and expertise. I felt, unusually, that she was acting strongly in the interests of both sides to close the best possible deal for all concerned. She also identifies and wins plum opportunities that many of her opposite numbers seem to miss. Insight, integrity and responsiveness come as standard.

I have worked with Brightwater Executive for several months, sourcing high calibre lawyers for our Cayman Islands and Hong Kong offices. Our consultant is unusually thoughtful and careful in identifying and selecting candidates for us. From experience, she undoubtedly applies equal rigour to recommending us to candidates. There is nothing worse than expending time and energy interviewing candidates that are not truly interested, or indeed truly appropriate for interview. She ensures that this does not happen. She is delight to deal with both by telephone and email, and I have no doubt that she will continue to be one of our favoured recruiters for years to come.
