Testimonials

“I am pleased to have engaged Hilary Shenton for over 10 years. She has conducted many successful search campaigns for Elizabeth Finn Homes for Operations and Home Management positions. The wonderful benefit to us as a company is that I can completely trust Hilary to source candidates for us, undertaking all of the preliminary interviews and assessments, and I do not need to be engaged in the process after the initial scoping conversation until the final shortlist is presented and I conduct the final interviews. It is very much like Hilary being part of the management team and not someone outside who does not have the same vested interest in the outcome.”

Nyree Kidd Chief Operating Officer, Elizabeth Finn Care Homes
We recently started working with Hilary to help us find the calibre of managers we need to run our luxury homes. Hilary has extensive experience in our sector and really took the time to understand our needs. She was able to provide us with a number of excellent candidates who not only had the capabilities to excel in role but were also a great fit for our culture. Hilary is strategic in her thinking and has a great balance of professionalism and empathy making working with her a very enjoyable experience. She provides a very cost effective high-quality service and we are now continuing to work with her as part of our recruitment strategy.

The largest asset our charity owns is a care homes business, whose profits are used to support the charity’s ability to fulfil its purpose.  Hilary ran a critical (and highly successful) search for a new CEO for the care home business – our most important recruitment activity for years. Not only was the process of going through the search and interview genuinely seamless and also totally confidential, but Hilary went far beyond the standard brief.
By really understanding the culture of the group, the successful candidate was not only professionally outstanding but also a remarkable fit for the wider organisation. Hilary invests in understanding the heart and soul of a business and as a result finds those who have the genuine character to match the CV.

“We got to know about Hilary Shenton through the National Care Forum and we are glad we did.

Hilary has a strategic approach to recruitment. She invested time in getting to know us and our priorities. She is excellent at matching the person both to the role, and the organisation’s culture. We felt as though the assignment mattered to her and she wanted to do the very best for us. She found us an outstanding candidate who is making a real difference in our organisation. Hilary provided good value for a high quality service and we would not hesitate to use Raine Recruitment again.”
