What our client’s think:

Partner / Head of Audit, BDO:“We have worked with Lee Sweeney at Sharp Consultancy for many years and we are always impressed.  Lee invests time in our relationship and understands our requirements.  Lee brings a proactive and professional approach in delivering on our recruitment needs – we really value the advice, insight and challenge that Lee delivers throughout the entire process.”


Financial Controller, Orchard Care Homes: – “We approached Sharp Consultancy in 2016 and since then our relationship has grown and developed. We have used Sharp Consultancy to recruit several employees into a number of levels within the finance structure for our head office in Harrogate. We have always been impressed with how Sharp Consultancy understands the financial market place and has taken time to understand our business requirements, and only puts forward candidates for interview that are suitable for the vacancy we have at that time.
The team at Sharp Consultancy provide a good overview of the market at the time of the vacancy, and the quality of the candidates put forward is consistently high and relevant for the role on offer. We utilise a few external recruit consultancies, but have confidence that the team at Sharp Consultancy consider ourselves as a business and understand the skills and experience the individual requires to fit with our company.”


Finance Director, Northern Powerhouse Developments: – “Mike has worked for me on a number of occasions, always successfully. His ability to first secure the long list of contenders is good but exceeded by the shortlisting process carried out personally. I have found that the candidates I ultimately interview can all do the job and the process of final selection is, as a result, quite difficult. I would recommend Mike at Sharp most highly”.


Manager, Cresswells Accountancy Practice: – “A few months ago, we had a great deal of difficulty finding tax and accountancy staff. We had tried endless forms of advertising, social media, and lots of recruitment agencies. I was, however, lucky to find Imogen at Sharp Consultancy. She immediately understood the type of people and the skills that we were looking for (believe me, it wasn’t an easy job for her!). She started to send through extremely relevant CVs, exactly tailored to our requirements, unlike most other agencies who really didn’t listen to what we were saying.
 Imogen is extremely professional at all times and really cares about matching up the right candidate with the right company. I have nothing but praise for her and would highly recommend her. She is now our first port of call for any recruitment requirements.”


Head of Finance, PPG: –I have worked with Karen, Michael and Jamie over the last few years and have always found them to be professional whilst also offering a personal service that demonstrates a real understanding of our needs. Their understanding of the differing requirements of roles within our Business Finance function means that they are able to shortlist candidates that are well suited to the opportunity as well as being a good fit for our organisation.
I would not hesitate in recommending Sharp Consultancy and will continue to engage with the team in Leeds as the need arises.”


Finance Director, Twisted: –  “Mike is a first class recruiter and business manager whose thoroughness and attention to detail ensures that all candidates suggested by him for a role are appropriately qualified and fully suited to the needs and style of our business. He keeps in close contact during an assignment whether he be leading it himself or overseeing on of his managers; most impressively he doesn’t forget you once an assignment has concluded – his ‘aftersales’ contact is very professional and displays a genuine ongoing interest in how our business is developing and growing”.
