Education Client Testimonials

"We’ve used the services of Susie and the team at Lomas Executive on several occasions and have always found them to be a great help. They’ve never let us down. They’ve always been quick to respond to any request and the candidates referred to our business have been a great cultural fit and first rate. I’d highly recommend them for your next recruitment task."

Peter Yates, Head of Corporate Services, Newington College,

"Susie takes the time to understand my values and the expectations I have of staff. Consequently Susie's hiring recommendations are a good match for my organisation and I have no hesitation in meeting the candidates she puts forward.

Susie's feedback on potential candidates is frank, concise and clear. I will continue to consult Susie for my future recruitment needs."

Richard Jones, ICT Manager, Shore School

"U College is a bold experiment - we’ve got a transparency and a frankness in the way we do business that’s a real shock to business-as-usual. When I needed to find unique people just right for a cohesive, but nimble team, the only choice was Lomas Executive. The results - bang on."

Varant Bomoushakian, CEO, U College

"I worked with Lomas Executive for the recruitment of our technical and helpdesk staff. Susie and her team ensured they understood our industry (education), the School’s strategic goals and our departmental service objectives, as the start point for each engagement.

Lomas Executive produced all marketing material, placed ads, did an initial review of all applicants and finally filtered out those most suitable for the role. My involvement started and ended with final interviews for genuine candidates, and this meant a single interview with one or two individuals who were clearly well suited to the role.

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."

Philip Cross, University of Sydney

I have dealt with many recruitment firms and have found few that understand the key needs of the employer in attaining a new resource that will result in a lift of performance in the role you assign them. Susie Lomas has that understanding and I found I could rely on her expertise to find the people we needed. Specifically, bringing a number of key attributes to the table:- 

A desire to ensure she has an understanding of the business and cultural fit;

Speed - Responsiveness and focus on the employer’s needs;

Personal attention - Lomas Executive is a boutique firm and so you deal with the principal;

Competitive terms;

Flexibility - The nature of the role dictates the process to locate the right person;

A “sixth sense” in finding the person that is the best fit for your needs.

Lomas Executive can deliver results at a time when it matters to you and every dollar has to show a return."
