Senior HR Advisor
Many employers today use the electronic advertising media in the first instance to generate applications to fill vacancies. Although varying rates of success are achieved there are also those difficult-to-fill roles which require the concerted effort of a recruiting specialist to find or identify the right candidates. Susie Lomas is one of those specialists whose determination, knowledge of the market place and intuition have enabled her to unearth several ‘best fit’ candidates for us – allowing us to get on with managing and growing the business.
SMC Pneumatics (Australia) Ltd
Our company recently required assistance to fill the senior management role of National Sales Manager. With so many consultants in the market place we were uncertain which one to approach.
By word of mouth Lomas Executive was recommended to me as being suited to fill such an important senior position. I contacted the company and spoke with Susie Lomas, and after an initial discussion she arranged to meet with me onsite to get an overall understanding of not just the position to be filled, but the physical size of our operation, work environment, and culture of the company, to ensure a suitable short list of candidates.
Susie handled the assignment personally and was extremely efficient throughout the whole process. The end result was a short list of high caliber candidates from which our new National Sales Manager was appointed.
At all times in my dealings with Lomas Executive I found the personnel I dealt with to be extremely professional and focused on ensuring putting forward candidates offering “the right fit” for our organisational requirements. As a result of the successful placement of the right candidate we have since engaged Lomas Executive on other recruitment assignments.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lomas Executive should the need arise.
Linde Materials Handling Pty Ltd
Susie recently took the time to really understand our requirements and then helped us fill a role that had been very difficult to fill in the past; so we are appreciative and thankful for that. Susie is always very pleasant to deal with and professional in the way she conducts her business.
Executive General Manager
Over the years I have had relationships with many recruitment firms as both a client and a candidate. It is important that your partner in recruitment selection thoroughly understand the requirements of the role and its context in the entire business. Through the recruitment process, Lomas Executive proved that they really understand their clients business. They took steps to ensure that competencies and values of client and candidate were matched prior to an introduction. Susie ensured that follow-up was timely and clarifications were facilitated to ensure that not only was the right candidate selected, but that each party had confidence in that choice. The team at Lomas Executive are extremely professional and meticulous in their approach. I have no hesitation in recommending Lomas Executive to any client or candidate.

Church of England Grammar School
ICT Manager - Shore
Shore School ICT Department has been fortunate to have had the services of Lomas Executive for the recruitment of technical and helpdesk staff over the last year or so. Susie and her team have ensured they understand our industry (education), our School goals and our departmental service objectives, as a starting point for the relationship.
Using the School's existing position descriptions Lomas Executive has produced all marketing material, placed ads, undertaken initial culling of all applicants and final filtered genuine candidates. My role started and ended with final interviews for those genuine candidates, and this meant a single interview with one or two individuals who were clearly well suited to the role.
Finally Lomas Executive staff completed all reference checking prior to offers being made.
We at Shore were looking for value for money when we asked Lomas Executive to manage our recruitment, and that is exactly what has been achieved, through their systematic approach and skillful assessment techniques.
Schindler Lifts Australia Pty Ltd
Director, Human Resources
I have worked with Susie and the Lomas Executive team for just over 2 years now and find their service and responsiveness first class. Lomas adds values not only from their ability to source appropriate candidates for a range of roles expeditiously, but that they also give due consideration to the candidate's fit to our business culture. This value in turn, stems from a genuine desire and willingness to understand the needs of our business and adapt her approach to source candidates accordingly.
I appreciate the attention to detail that Susie and the team at Lomas Executive go to in establishing their recruitment brief, which manifests in very accurate matching of candidates to the proposed roles - every candidate referred fits the bill. Indeed, allowing LE to select and screen candidates has been a great time saver.
Group Sales & Marketing Excellence Manager
Susie specialises in integrity. I continue to work with the Lomas Group because Susie invests in understanding the key drivers of our business, our strategy, and the role. This is important in effectively uncovering talented individuals who share our vision. Susie consistently produces candidates who are a good potential match for Boral, and refuses to put forward candidates who do not share our values.

In general we in the education industry are looking for value for money when we rely on external providers and that is exactly what was achieved when Lomas Executive managed my recruitment.
Michael Downie, General Manager Clevertronics International
“Susie and the team at Lomas Executive have been servicing the recruitment requirements of Clevertronics in Australia for the last 3 years.
With our recent expansion into New Zealand we required a specialised sales team and, to guide the team, a high calibre manager. With tight time lines Susie set to work on the ground in New Zealand in both north and south islands, organising and pre interviewing a strong stable of candidates. The process was seamless, within a month we had recruited our manager and sales team, which made the start-up development speedier and more efficient.
For our international operations, the key to recruitment excellence is understanding our business requirements, the culture of the company and industry knowledge and this is what Lomas Executive brings to every brief.”
“Despite the negative outcome, my experience working with both Susie and Debbie has been an absolute pleasure. You wouldn't believe how often recruiters don't contact back the applicants, leaving them on hold for days. If the result of the process is negative, it's always best to know it outfront, so the applicant can move on and try the next one.”
Rob T, Project Manager WA
Susie has an incredible ability to discern professional talent and individual personality in such a way that ensures her clients find high-performing candidates that match their particular corporate cultures.
It is always a challenge to find high performing talent, however Susie's drive to find the right candidate for every position is a characteristic that sets her apart and provides organisations with the confidence that the candidates she puts forwards are of the highest calibre and appropriate fit for their business.
Susie's strong, positive energy makes her an absolute pleasure to work with. If you are seeking assistance with finding capable candidates, suited to your business, who can hit the ground running then I recommend working with Susie Lomas.
Matt Parsons, Head of Analytics & Market Insights, QLD
It was a big decision for me to leave my employer after 12 years, however when I made my decision, I was lucky enough to work with Susie and Debbie from Lomas Executive.
Susie and the team made me feel comfortable from our very first interaction and from that day my mind was at ease and the entire experience was extremely easy.
They were efficient, approachable, reliable and most importantly very personal during the process, answering any questions that I had with great knowledge of the business (Clevertronics)
I would recommend Lomas Executive to represent you or your business when it comes to professional recruitment for your workplace
Matt Greck, State Manager SA/NT
Susie was a pleasure to work with throughout the recruitment process. Susie’s experience in BI domain was a great help and she was able to guide me and give excellent advice throughout the recruitment process. She is very knowledgeable, focused, dedicated and always available for a chat. I would highly recommend Susie to anyone looking for a role in IT/BI
Preethi Kashyap, Senior Visual Analytics Analyst, QLD
I had the utmost privilege and luck to cross paths with Susie, which changed my life (for the better) from that moment on. I was reached out to by Lomas Executive as a potential fit for a Sales & Marketing Director position, on behalf of a prominent, global construction materials company. Susie and her organization did a fantastic job in matching my skill set and experience with my future company. After the initial screening, I was fortunate enough to meet Susie for an in-person interview. Describing the experience as "world-class" or "highly professional" are truly understatements. She was a charismatic and accurate brand ambassador for the company I was being recruited for. Susie is truly a master of her trade. I am extremely confident you're in the best hands with Susie, whether you're a potential candidate or a partner organization in search of recruitment.
Armin Moosazadeh, Director, Market Intelligence & Sales Processes, San Francisco
Many executive recruitment companies claim that they operate in the most professional manner but very few deliver on that statement. The experience I had with Lomas Executive showed me just how a professional recruitment business is run. Right from the first contact the information flow and communication was first class right down to timely reminders on upcoming appointments and to have Susie Lomas herself conduct the interview and make herself so available at any time was a real bonus; what she spoke about the role, the company and how it all operated was spot on. Special mention also to Debbie who is Susie's assistant just so thorough in what she does again very much a part of a well-run executive recruitment business.
Garry Lally, Regional Manager, QLD
My experience with Susie recently was fantastic. Whilst searching for a new role, Susie and Debbie were actively communicating opportunities to me and always followed through with what they said they would do. Either via the mobile or email they were constantly letting me know of roles which best suited my needs and once the right role for me was established, they were always keeping me up to date through the process. Susie really takes the time to listen and focusses on your needs and moves quickly toward finding the roles which best suit you. I would recommend Lomas Executive to anyone, if you are looking for a change and seeking a new job or if you need a great recruiter to seek out the right person to fill a role you are advertising.
Ben O’Hara, BDM NSW
I had the privilege to work with Susie Lomas and her team recently and it has been a great experience.
Susie explained in great details the nature and challenges of the role, making sure that my skills and expertise are a good match for the company needs and specific culture. Later, during the recruitment process she kept me fully informed every step of the way and, I have to say, it is incredibly reassuring to know what is happening at every step.
Moreover, Susie and her team have always been available to answer my questions in a timely manner, so the entire process felt easy and effective. I highly recommend Susie and Lomas Executive team.
Georgian Radu, Principal Project Management, QLD
"Debbie, I would like to thank both yourself and Susie for representing my portfolio for this position. It had been an absolute pleasure to be represented by such a well organised and professional recruitment company.
I look forward to this fantastic opportunity and appreciate all your hard efforts to make this possible."
Julie Bransgrove, Territory Sales Manager QLD
“As a candidate, I was extremely fortunate to have an experience that was not only far more superior than any other I’ve had with a recruitment agency, but one that was far more efficient, effective and on point. Susie’s incredible experience enables her to truly interpret a candidate’s resume beyond words on paper, identify real potential, determine relevant transferrable skills and finally, align culture fit. In addition to Susie’s expertise, Debbie’s support behind the scenes rounded the exceptional experience that Lomas Executive offers. The “Lomas Executive Experience” is one that will truly make a difference to your career.”
Helen Vshivkoff, Group Project Manager, QLD
“The subtle relationship investments made by Susie and her Lomas executive team have completely decoded culture and Fit for my recent shift in vocation. Benchmarks and standardized testing provide a base line for executive suitability but Susie’s rich client side understanding and her professional empathy made the recruitment journey transparent and concise. Susie has outstanding, intuitive business intelligence and processes that will deliver authentic outcomes for clients and talent alike. Simply the best I have encountered.”
Brett McGrath, Group Project Manager, QLD
"It's hard for me to put into words the exceptional journey I have been on since my path crossed with Susie and her team at Lomas Executive. Prior to applying for my present role I had only ever been in business for myself. Having never been employed by another in my adult life meant my resume was more than unusual! Thankfully, Susie had taken the time to truly understand her client and the position they desired to fill and connected the dots between their needs and my skill set perfectly. I couldn't be more thrilled with the career trajectory I am now on. No matter how long the working day or how many planes I am on in a month; I wake up every day excited to be a part of the company I'm with and thrilled for what my future holds. Thank you Susie, to say you changed my life would be a total understatement. I'm forever grateful."
Kathryn Sforcina, Sales Director NSW
“My opinion could be only one of the best. I was recruited by Lomas Executive and I can tell you that I always felt they were dedicated in finding me this job, and always gave me very professional advice (about the interview, possible questions etc, very promptly and to the point). Lomas Executive is stand-out specialist recruiter due to the quality, reliability and personal touch of the service they offer. So, overall I am really pleased to have been recruited by Lomas Executive. I would not hesitate in recommending Lomas Executive to anyone.”
Rimon Rony, Principal Data Scientist, QLD
"Debbie is a very dedicated and thorough recruiter. I had the privilege of getting to know her when I relocated to Sydney and found her professionalism, guidance and supportive attitude extremely admirable. She helped me grab the right opportunity with speed and confidence, guiding me all the while with the cultural needs of a different country. I wish her and Lomas Executive all the best in their future endeavours and I am sure job seekers and employers will find her very resourceful and passionate."
Abbas Ali, Marketing Coordinator, NSW
“I believe, to be a GOOD job consultant it takes not just certificate or degree, it takes full heart, passion and strong willingness to help. With Lomas Executive, I was assisted by not just a good, but a GREAT person, Debbie Prudhoe. From the first time she rang me (after my submission was received), she has been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, encouraging and professional in my employment search. She constantly contacted me with updates and progress with a very open and honest approach. She served Lomas Executive very well. Thank you so very much, Debbie.”
Wimpy Halim, Internal Sales, NSW
“I really enjoyed the service and people of Lomas Executive. Lomas Executive is a very professional and efficient recruitment agency which matches the right people with great companies. I got my Assistant Accountant position through Lomas Executive after I was made redundant from my previous company. They found me and interviewed me based on my talents, skills and capabilities to meet the requirements of the company. During the whole process, they kept in touch with me and kept me updated on time. Most importantly, the company they matched me with is professional and growing and I can contribute and develop myself in the long term.“
Lillian Wang, Assistant Accountant, Vic
“I have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending Lomas Executive. Debbie was not only professional but caring and considerate while working with me. I was kept up to date on my progress in a very fast, efficient and more so genuine manner. It was a pleasure to know Debbie and I am truly appreciative of her efforts to find me the perfect job.”
Merrilynn Walker, Customer Service Officer, SA
I found the team at Lomas Executive to be extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process. I felt the team took the time to get to really know me as an individual which helped them place me in a position that I would not have necessarily have been looking at. Their professionalism gave me the confidence to step outside of my normal comfort zone and apply my skills to a better suited career.
Brenton Justins, Account Manager WA
Job hunting is stressful at the best of times so you can imagine my relief when I finally found a fantastic agency in Lomas Executive.
The ladies were very good at listening to my needs as a candidate and matching me up with an employer who ticked all the boxes for the perfect career shift.
The process from start to finish was very organised, professional and carried out with total transparency.
I could not recommend the Lomas team enough.
Bryn Williams, Architectural Area Manager, WA
Lomas Executive were responsible for the recruitment of a Sales Manager for their client who is an internationally recognised construction material company.
As the prospective incumbent to the role , it became clear why they are regarded as a high quality recruitment specialist. Susie, along with Debbie gave me the immediate feeling of confidence and trust when the opportunity was explored in greater detail and the openness of our discussions ensured that their representation was accurate and timely to the client. By quickly understanding my potential and capabilities, it was not long before I was able to realise this opportunity was meant to be, and indeed, they too were able to ensure that their client made the correct choice.
From end to end, their involvement has been personal, professional and to an exceptional detail.”
Peter Dawes, Field Sales Manager, SA
I have recently been placed in a role by Lomas Executive. I found Debbie and Susie kept me informed and up to date throughout the whole process. I didn’t have to pick up the phone to call them once. Since taking up my new role Debbie has stayed in touch to ensure everything is going well. I definitely feel that my new role suits my skill set and couldn’t be happier.
Great company, lovely people’
Neil Fitzsimons, Project Coordination Technician, WA
Having recently attained a position within a reputable company through Lomas Executive I have nothing but thanks for the support given to me by Susie and Debbie. Susie knows her customers’ needs inside out and was able to give me a thorough background on the company I was applying for answering any questions I threw at her which was a tremendous help throughout the interview process.
During the interviews with the employer Susie and Debbie were a constant source of help and quick phone calls to Debbie to confirm interview times always turned into long conversations laughing about each other’s differing experiences since moving to Australia from the UK. I really can’t recommend Lomas Executive highly enough and thank them for the help and support that they have given to me
Steve Cox, Project Coordinator, Vic
Lomas Executive is a very professional recruitment company providing high quality service during whole recruitment process. I am so impressed by Susie and her team's highly efficient and effective service, based on deep understanding of both clients' needs and candidates' expertise ensuring the recruitment process runs smoothly. The regular contact from Lomas always makes me feel warm and happy, just like hearing from an old friend - reliable to the end.
Lisa Feng. QA Manager, NSW
"From the moment I contacted Lomas, their service was impeccable, warm and genuine thanks to Susie, my consultant, and Debbie, the operations manager. Susie and Debbie were always available when I contacted them and feedback was provided with speed (not once did I have to chase them for follow-up). My new role is a perfect match in terms of my skills, experience and personality. Lomas Executive is the best executive recruitment firm I have ever worked with, bar none."
Kirrily Graham, Product Marketing Manager, NSW
‘I was first introduced to Lomas Executive after applying for a position online. Having worked for the same company for 11 years, I decided to pursue a more challenging role in a different industry. Meeting Susie for the first time, I found her very genuine and easy to get along with. Her professionalism and efficiency throughout every stage of the recruitment process made it a great experience for me. Honest feedback and great support helped me secure my desired role, whilst regular interaction with her team made the transition to a new role effortless.’
Jeff Punzalan, Product Manager, NSW
‘I highly recommend Lomas Executive as a professional and skilled recruitment firm who helped me find the right position and identified the key criteria I was looking for. They clearly take the time to understand the needs of both the employer and candidate, which not only streamlined the whole process but caused me to consider and accept a role in a non-typical industry sector’.
Scott Jug, Business Development Manager, NSW
I found Susie and Debbie to be very professional and helpful in securing my new role. They were both very supportive during the interview process as well as during the final negotiation stages to secure the role. Nothing I requested was ever too much and their responsiveness was very much appreciated.
I would recommend Lomas Executive to anyone looking for a new role as they provide a fantastic personalised service, which I think separates them from the run of the mill CV shufflers out in the market.
Damon Messias, Key Account Manager – Telecoms, VIC
I was excited to meet Susie Lomas at the end of 2013. After a few dull interviews with other agencies that left me feeling deflated and patronised, I was impressed by her professional and pleasant manner throughout our initial phone call and felt positive about our meeting face to face.
It was refreshing to be interviewed by a recruiter that was completely prepared and experienced.
It was clear from the start and extremely helpful that Susie was knowledgeable about the employer/organisation and had a depth of understanding of the myriad necessary skills required of the role. I also thought it was prudent of Susie to value the candidate being a good cultural fit as sustainability really is the key to a successful job placement.
As an added bonus, I found Susie's interview style enjoyable and interesting as we had a genuine discussion and we shared experiences, ideas and thoughts as opposed to being the usually predictable "clipboard" question/answer situation that can be uncomfortable and contrived.
I would recommend Susie Lomas as she is an authentic person and an expert in her field.
