Client Testimonials

  • I have worked with Lee over the last 12 years both as a candidate and a client in the corporate finance, banking and FD markets. He is extremely well connected with all the leading firms and people and is able to leverage this to open doors and create opportunities I had never expected. Lee has placed me into two roles, one of which has shaped my career ever since, and has also supported my recruitment of talented and energetic people on numerous occasions with great results. The thing that distinguishes Lee most clearly in my experience is his honest and candid approach - he tells you straight what you need to know, when you need to know it. This has been the cornerstone of a trusted relationship over a long period of time. I would, and indeed have, recommended Lee to friends, colleagues and employers and will continue working with him for the rest of my career.

  • ​As usual Sharp Consultancy has provided exactly the candidate we were looking for. Aaron knows he is the first person I pick the phone up to on recruitment needs and hands down it is down to Aaron that as a candidate or hiring manager, Sharp Consultancy are first port of call.

    John Kemp - Head of Finance - DB Cargo

  • ​I have had the pleasure to work with Lee over the years from both the perspectives of an employer looking for professional staff and as a candidate.

    He is great to work with not only because of his personable, sensible and professional approach and advice but also because of his fantastic connections across the professional and business community in the region (and beyond). His wide experience means there is very little that phases Lee (and his colleagues) and unlike some of his professional competitors, he consistently delivers on what he promises. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other businesses and to those looking for new opportunities.

    Tony Chapman - Partner - BHP Chartered Accountants

  • Aaron placed me in my current position. Aaron is extremely professional and personable but most importantly listened to what I was looking for, as a result he only contacted me with the right opportunities which is extremely refreshing. I have subsequently used him for recruitment opportunities and have been delighted with the results and will continue to utilise his skills in the future where the need arises.
