  • Kirsty and the team at PartnerWise have recruited over 10 senior level roles within our EMEALA organisation over the past 3 years. These were at Director, Snr Director and VP level across various functional areas including ecommerce, sales, merchandising, HR and planning. Kirsty has taken the time to understand our business and build relationships with key stakeholders, which coupled with her in-depth market knowledge and connectivity globally has enhanced the talent level of our organisation. Over and above this, Kirsty’s down to earth, collaborative and honest style is refreshing within the recruitment world. I would highly recommend PartnerWise for executive search within the global fashion space.
  • I had the pleasure of working myself with Kirsty who supported me in finding the role I am in today. The process was really positive! I also get to work with Kirsty in sourcing talents for open roles in my organization but also to support my close network when looking for new opportunities. Kirsty is a great listener and has a special talent in matching the right candidate profiles with the right company / role and ensure the culture fit is truly right. This is really what she excels at: ensuring the perfect match not only from a skill set point of view but also from a cultural / personality point of view.

  • Working with Jenny Dodds and Partnerwise has been a refreshing experience. From the first call, I knew she truly understood the industry and the company’s needs. Jenny stands out from other recruiters with her exceptional care and support for candidates. She has been proactive in guiding and advocating for me, sparing me the need to chase her for updates. Despite being retained by clients, Jenny prioritized my interests as if I were the client. This level of dedication is rare in recruitment agencies. Partnerwise is a hidden gem, and I wish them all the success they deserve. If I ever need a role in the future, as an employer or candidate, they’ll be my first call.

  • Kirsty and I have been connected on LinkedIn for the past 5+ years. Recently I was looking for a new role and reached out to Kirsty. She came back to me quickly with a potential opportunity and got the ball rolling very quickly. Within weeks she had me talking to all of the key stakeholders in the organization and the rest is history, as I have started my new position in March! Throughout the process Kirsty was kept the communication lines open and followed-thru the very end of the process to ensure 100% completion of the task at hand. If you need a quality recruiting professional to work with, as a company or an individual, I recommend reaching out to Kirsty!
