FEEDBACK | 28TH MAY 2019A candidate's critique A recent candidate from our Head of Water Quality assignment shares her experiences during the executive search process. X Lead ConsultantSam Malik Every day, 1.2 million people rely on our client for clean, fresh drinking water. Below is feedback from Samantha Vince, a candidate from our recent Head of Water Quality search. Responsiveness "Sam Malik, the lead consultant of the search assignment, was efficient and extremely professional. She was attentive and reassuring and worked well as an intermediary between the client and me. She was also patient and persistent in her communications. My current role often means that I am without a phone signal or email sometime for extended periods, but she was very helpful in working with this." Our value to you "Could not have been better and the team was helpful in explaining what was required and supporting. Sam provided honest and accurate feedback to me and made like observations to some issues which I had also noted. She is able to give feedback in a neutral manner and does so without expressing a personal opinion - but fully explaining her way around the subject at the same time. The process for interview and evaluation was clearly defined and I felt comfortable with what to expect." Overall thoughts? "Fantastic service! Some really great staff who are totally committed to their role and do equal service to the client and the candidate. I would recommend to anyone as it made what can be quite a stressful activity straightforward and they were supportive at every stage. Thank you, Sam and all the team at 6 Group."
