Industrial Candidate Testimonials

"Working with Susie and the team at Lomas Executive was an absolute breath of fresh air. Susie is a gifted professional who has an acute ability to recognise and understand client needs and succeeds in being a positive extension to the businesses she works with. I am more than happy with the work Susie has done in recruiting talent for our business and give her my recommendation."

Justin Perryman, State Sales Manager, NSW, Clevertronics

"I had recently placed myself in the market for a new role and applied for one that was being handled by Susie. From the time of our first phone call, I felt comfortable with Susie's professional yet warm approach and instantly knew this was a recruitment company I wanted to deal with.

Her knowledge of the recruiting business, the people within, and the role were outstanding which highlighted Susie's passion and enthusiasm for her work.

I have been in the role for 6 weeks now and couldn't be happier - the experience so far has been everything I was told it would be at the recruitment stage. I would highly recommend working with Susie Lomas, either as a recruiting business or candidate and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience."

Glenn Robinson, State Sales Manager NSW, Timberlink

"Susie and I have been connected since 2014. Most recently this connection provided real value as Susie sought me out and guided the placement into my current role - which has proven to be excellent. During the whole recruitment process, as her candidate, Susie showcased some real skills in being empathetic and reassuring whilst being driven toward an outcome that satisfied all parties. Susie's openness, directness and refreshingly efficient business approach was a delight to experience and work with."

Justin James, National Manager Sales & Service, Sylvania Lighting

"I was very impressed with the team from Lomas Executive. I found all interactions with them to be thoroughly professional. The intimate knowledge of the industry along with the genuine intent of aligning the right people with the right position was very reassuring to witness. In particular, Susie's ability to gain a real insight into many complexities of recruiting is first class, and since working with Susie - something I have learnt not to take for granted..."

Tim Keech, Sales & Marketing Director ANZ, SMC


"Susie Lomas of Lomas Executive is professional, charismatic and, most of all, understanding. She and her team worked hard at finding me a suitable position, and unlike most....never gave up. It was refreshing to be treated as a person and not as a number, considering how demoralising it was trying to find work for so long. To this day, Susie still checks in periodically to see how I'm going as she cares about her clients' well-being. Thanks to Lomas Executive I am now gainfully employed and only wish that everyone who is looking for a new position has someone as dedicated as Susie looking out for the too."

Shane Van Den Ven, Applications Engineer, GLG Lighting


"It was a pleasure to deal with Susie and Debbie from Lomas Executive. Throughout the recruitment process both were very proactive and professional in securing my new role, and I can highly recommend Lomas Executive to anyone looking for the next step in their career.

What impressed me most was how easy the process was, from the first meeting with Susie to getting the job, and even the follow-up calls to check in."

Daniel Anderson, Senior Key Account Manager, Linde Material Handling

"Susie is professional, genuine, and empathetic. I felt reassured through the entire recruitment process knowing that Susie and Debbie were always available to me, and proactively kept me informed at every stage. Job searching can be an unpleasant experience, but thanks to Susie it was exactly the opposite."

Rhiannon McMahon, Technical Admin and Support (Engineering), Clevertronics

I would recommend engaging these wonderful people any time."

Nigel Colley, Regional Health, Safety & Environment Coordinator, JJ Richards


"My experience with Lomas Executive was great. I received honest feedback throughout the process, many follow up calls to keep me updated, and any queries from my side were dealt with immediately and professionally. I am thoroughly enjoying my new job, and I am so grateful that Susie and her team were not only looking at ticking boxes, but finding someone for the role who truly fitted the work culture and environment of their client. I've dealt with recruitment firms before, but this was the first time where I didn't feel like just another candidate."

Anna Retha-Green, Head of Creative Content, Knauf Plasterboard

James Cairncross, Technical Sales Consultant, Lotus Doors

"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, Heidelberg Cement Group

"I was in the process of a new career search in mid-2018. As it happened, I was in touch with Susie who introduced to me a new opportunity that I am now at. She is very professional in arranging every step of my career search. She kept me well informed at the time of the hiring process. She followed up well during and after the hiring process. I never had come across an executive search firm that had provided me such kind and professional service. I have no hesitation in recommending Lomas Executive to any prospective employer and job seeker."

Keith Chan, Head of HR, Alliance Construction Materials, Hong Kong

"I met Susie recently when applying for a permanent position. I liked her approach from the moment we had the first initial conversation over the phone and when met face to face.

She was down to earth, clear about her and my objectives, and kept me on track through the discussion.

I enjoyed the way she drove the conversation and explored my experience and expertise to determine whether my skills set matched the position requirements.

The entire interaction felt like a simple and enjoyable conversation, easy to follow but deep and intense at the same time. She worked hard for me, provided the help and advice I needed, kept the communication open at all times during the process ensuring I was happy. She represented my interest and the interest of her client well, and made me feel she was working for me too.

I would certainly recommend Susie to anyone who is looking for opportunities, rest assured she will be clear with the requirements, will not waste your time, will support you and make sure you get the best outcome."

Carmen Escobar, Head of Operations, Lotus Doors

"It was a pleasure to work with Susie when I was approached about a new role as an account manager, she was very easy to talk to, down to earth and great at matching my skill sets with the skill sets the opportunity required. Susie and her team were quick to answer and questions I had and were very communicative throughout the whole process. I hope to work with Susie again in the future should the opportunity present itself."

Andrew Bailey, Account Manager, Clevertronics

"My dealings with Susie have been pleasant, honest, to the point, and extremely positive. Through the whole job search process she kept me up to date and well informed.

Chris Hatzis, Technical Sales Consultant, Lotus Doors

"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.

Account Manager, Zumtobel Group, 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, Glasshape WA

"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.

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, Clevertronics

"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 and 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/NT/Northern NSW, USG Boral

"Susie is a pleasure to deal with, a rare find in the recruiting world with a clear understanding of suitability. The recruiting process is entirely transparent and focused on hiring the correct match for the business, not a band aide solution."

Scott Hogan, Aftermarket Manager, Nacco Material Handling Group

"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 is 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 Manager, Chamberlain Group

"I was truly fortunate to engage with Susie and Debbie whilst working through the recruitment process for my current role. From initial contact to final offer the process was completely professional with clear and concise communication allowing me to thoroughly assess the opportunity and its suitability for me. They are a great team that continually follow up and follow through. I can’t praise them enough for being able to strike the right balance between the considerations of both the client and the candidate. Based on my experience I can’t praise Lomas Executive enough."

George Dedes, National Sales Manager, Marinucci Packaging

"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."

Reza Ahmadi, Service Engineer, NACCO Material Handling Group

"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 Manager, Heidelberg Cement Group

"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, Marinucci Packaging

"Most recruiters treat candidates like cattle forgetting those same candidates will be needing a recruiter at some time after that.

These same recruiters get upset when they have the door shut in their face.

As a candidate with Lomas Exec you are treated with respect and communicated to personally with the necessary good and bad news through out the process. I cannot rate Susie and her team highly enough for their professionalism, honesty and integrity....rare ingredients in this industry."

Peter Darley, National Sales Manager, Schindler Lifts

"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, Prysmian NSW

"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. 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, Clevertronics Vic

"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, Heidelberg Cement Group

"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, Business Development Manager, Taurean Doors

"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, Clevertronics NSW

"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, LeHigh Hanson, San Francisco


"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, Clevertronics SA

"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, Hanson SA

“I would highly recommend Lomas Executive as your next recruitment agency whether you’re a candidate or an employer. With Lomas Executive you actually feel like they care and that you’re not just another number on the board.

I can honestly say that Susie and her team are the best recruitment agency I have dealt with.

I was kept in the loop throughout the entire process which made for a very stress free experience.“

Gavin Dixon, Project Manager, Lotus Doors

James O'Brien, Territory Sales Manager, Hanson QLD

Susie is professional, thorough, always available and a pleasure to work with."

Linda Maney, Regional Sales Manager Vic, Boral

"Susie assisted me in entering my role at James Hardie, it was a pleasure working with her. Susie has great understanding of the needs of her client and puts in equal amount of effort to understand the needs of the job seeker. I highly recommend Susie as a business partner and also a great industry contact. Thank you for your help Susie!"

Alex Jiang, Sales Cadet, James Hardie

"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, Prysmian 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, Prysmian VIC

"I applied for a position through Lomas Executive dealing with Debbie Prudhoe.

I would like to express to her and to your organisation what a fantastic operator she is, she is a credit to herself and your organisation.

Not only did she get me an interview, she 'professionalised' my resume for the interview and for me to keep for future. She followed up, sent me tips, asked for feedback and generally kept me in the loop. She is friendly as well as being professional.

I have dealt with agencies before and not once had a response like this. Many of my friends and colleagues have doubted the sincerity of agencies and whether they even have the jobs they advertise, or are just getting you on their books. I certainly don't doubt the sincerity of Lomas because of Debbie."

Neil Thacker, Internal Sales Candidate

"The recruitment process was carried out in a very professional and smoothly manner. The interview with Susie was the initial and key part of the process; she knew what the employer was looking for and she passed the message to me very clearly.

Susie always kept me informed during the process and she also managed to pass my requirements to the employer. Very happy with the outcome."

Marco Quivaqui, Management Accountant, Fisher & Paykel
