Highly valued clients

With most of our work coming from client referrals, we'd like to thank our highly valued clients for these lovely testimonials.

“Jen is as invested in getting amazing people into T2 as we are. Settling for average is not an option and this comes from her deep understanding of our business and culture and a strong appreciation for the emphasis we place on both capability and fit in equal measure. We are delighted with the great people we have at T2 thanks to Jen – they are most certainly our cup of tea!”

Further to our discussions from time to time, I am writing to more formally  express my appreciation to you for so well managing the process for recruitment of our new Executive Director.  The process ran seamlessly, and the ultimate appointment of Lynn Haultain  was correct as her performance has shown.  Thank you.  Kind regards “

"As the Chair of a small but growing not for profit organisation, I was acutely aware that we needed to attract an outstanding executive candidate who could take our board's vision forward. Jen Gavin-Rowley conducted a thorough executive search for us, identified a number of excellent candidates and screened them carefully to ensure that our culture, values and experience were aligned. Jen is a consumate professional, extremely empathetic and took the time we needed to truly understand our candidates and conduct a high quality interview process and presentation to the Board. She provided our selection panel with a report featuring thorough background information and insightful assessment of each candidate, such that we felt fully supported with, yet in control, of the whole process. Through her positive impression on the Directors, Jen is now one of the Skyline family of supporters and I have no hesitation in recommending Galvin-Rowley Executive to any organisation like Skyline seeking to attract outstanding candidates."

“Jen has really invested in understanding our culture and what attributes to look for to ensure a seamless team-fit. In addition her definition of quality and high calibre is the same as ours. That makes life so much easier and means we are consistently forced to make tough choices at the end of relatively short recruitment periods. What else could we ask?!”

  “Galvin-Rowley Recruitment has been an invaluable partner as our company embarked upon a significant organisational redesign.  In an effort to build capability and create a strong, consistent culture Jennifer worked closely with our business leaders to truly understand the journey we were on, ensuring that every person we bought into the business had the right skills and the outlook we were seeking.  We’re only in the early stages but the calibre of candidates she presented to us was exceptional”.  

"Jennifer is a rare breed of recruiter / HR consultant - she actually cares a lot about the client and the candidate. I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer as a client and as a potential candidate, so I can speak from both sides of interaction. Jennifer gets the brief, gets your brand and gets your requirement - on time, on brand and on budget. Unlike the majority out there, she cares and provides an extremely high level of professionalism no matter if you are the client or the candidate. She's also a lovely person!"

"As a CEO of rapidly growing company with a sizable regional workforce managed by a small, dynamic executive office I used Galvin-Rowley Executive to find me the correct executives for our head office.  Due to the nature of the business our demands were quite specific and “out of the norm’, they were always time critical. Jennifer would always deliver, the short listed candidates well-credentialed for the roles and of high standard.  Jennifer provided excellent research and commentary on the prospective candidates and overlaid that with a very mature, experienced, practical and forthcoming response when questioned on differing candidates personal attributes. I have also maintained a personal relationship with Jennifer over the years where she has provided a sounding board and guidance role for my own career."

“For a decade I’ve engaged Jen to fill HR and other roles. She is excellent in both client management and candidate care. Responsive to challenging assignments, Jen creates a realistic client expectation of deliverables. Given her consistently superior service, I truly value our relationship.”

"I have used Galvin Rowley Executive for two job placements now. I have found the approach of Jen and her staff to be thorough, respectful and very considered as she walks both the candidate and the employer through the selection process. After starting my last role she has followed up with both my employer and myself to make sure the fit was right and to check if there were any issues she could assist in resolving. I would recommend GRE to any candidate looking for an executive appointment and will be using her when our organisation next begins recruitment of senior positions."

"As a candidate, Jen was always an absolute pleasure to deal with. She always operated with the highest degree of professionalism and her candour throughout the whole recruitment process was a breath of fresh air. I'd be more than happy to recommend her to any candidate or employer, as her ability to manage both sides of the relationship is second to none. I cannot think of a better experience I've had with a recruitment firm than with GRE."

"What a joy it is to engage with Galvin Rowley Executive. Grace, care and expertise are the adjectives that come to mind when I think about Jen and the way she manages her clients and candidates. Above all, I am impressed with Galvin Rowley's service ethic and ability to astutely find the right match for a win-win outcome. Jen is a delight to work with and is a wonderful representative of your corporate or personal brand. She is trustworthy, generous, unflappable, diligent and savvy and comes with my heartfelt recommendation."

" All my dealings with Jennifer Galvin-Rowley have been exemplary. Jen understood the role to be filled well and was able to communicate formally and informally with ease and insight. The whole process was handled with great professionalism – I would thoroughly recommend Jen and her team."

"Jen, thank you for your continuous support with my career. I truly appreciate your detailed candidate care, in particular your sensitivity for my professional and personal career plan. It expedited the recruitment process and ensured success, resulting in a win-win for all involved. Jen, it’s a pleasure working with you and it is this dedicated care factor that makes you different. I am sure to continue recommending you both to organisations and strong talent.”

Meeting Jen was one of the best ‘recruitment’ experiences I have had in my career. Her interest in truly understanding me and my values and priorities was truly refreshing and meant that we could discuss new job opportunities with humor, transparency and candor. At the end of the day, any successful business comes down to having teams of people who compliment each other. I am very grateful to Jen for giving me the opportunity to do what I love best in a culture that excites and inspires me.
