Many of our candidates return to us as clients when recruiting their own executive teams and many of our clients become candidates. Our aim for each assignment is to build a successful, long-lasting relationship with both candidate and client. But don’t just take our word for it; see for yourself what people say about us.
Caroline has an incredible network of contacts. Her knowledge of the IT recruitment market is quite awesome, and she is an absolute delight to work with. I have used her services as a succesful candidate, as a client and also as a Business Partner. Simply the best!!
Steve Bailey, Non-Exec Advisor - Connections Recruitment
Caroline was instrumental in me joining Juniper Networks. As a headhunter she did a fantastic job researching and representing her client (Juniper). She supported me throughout the process, keeping me informed and connected. A thoroughly professional approach.
Nick Barley Vice President, EMEA Marketing - Juniper Networks
It's always struck me that successful executive search requires three key attributes: Chemistry, Capability and Connections. In my experience, Caroline and her team at Hayward & Associates exemplify all three values. Caroline easily develops rapport with both clients and candidates, has a highly effective methodology, and is exceptionally well-connected. Highly recommended!
Bob Apollo Managing Director - Inflexion-Point
Caroline helped recruit for me at MSA and more recently has introduced me to a potential business partner. Caroline combines professionalism with integrity together with an intimate and detailed knowledge of the pan-European TMT sector. This, together with her strong background, provides a key differentiation in her favour.
John Busby Managing Director - BKC
Caroline became engaged as an executive recruitment partner with us and through her we saw a number of excellent candidates who we subsequently hired. I have also used Caroline for general advice on recruitment. Both Caroline and the whole company act with professionalism and integrity and the quality of her colleagues also does her great credit.
Jeremy Wray - IBM
Over the years I have dealt with many "headhunters". I have found Caroline at Hayward and Associates a pleasure to do business with, Hayward treats their clients with respect and are very professional and get the job done on time and above clients expectation. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Nick Parsons EVP & Managing Director - Thyron Systems
Hayward Associates have an extensive understanding of the UK technology arena and maintain a valuable database of high quality executives. When engaged on an executive search they work with the client on all aspects from validating the job description and advising on appropriate remuneration to careful screening and candidate managment to ensure the right person is found for the role.
Paul Ellis Managing Director - Pragmatic Strategy
It was a pleasure working with Caroline and the team. It was reassuring to know that, with their experience, knowledge and contacts, the plan would be executed successfully and would provide a great outcome.
Yaniv Vardi Managing Director - Sparta Systems Europe
Hayward & Associates sourced an excellent General Manager for our European Operations. The calibre of the shortlist was extremely high & the assignment was professionally handled throughout.
Amir Biran former CEO - Zoomix (now Microsoft)
I have used Caroline on two occasions to recruit VP level senior executives into two technology companies where I was CEO (Clearswift & Fair Isaac). Both times she did an excellent job. We hired two good people who soon became important players in the management team.
Jon Lee CEO - Horizon Innovation Ltd
Having been placed by Hayward & Associates in my role as CEO at Formic I already knew that they have a very good understanding of the skills small to medium companies require from senior Executives. Their contact base and knowledge enabled Formic to appoint an excellent Non Exec Chairman to help deliver on growth plans. I was also very impressed with the level of communication and their management of the entire process.
Hayward & Associates have a 100% track record of consistently delivering first class shortlists for me from which my management teams have difficulty in deciding who to appoint!
