"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. I contacted 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 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."

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.

Gary Jones, National Sales & Marketing Manager, Toll Group

“Susie should be known as super woman not a recruitment specialist because of her high work ethic and ability to get things right first time, every time. Susie’s ability to practically pair a candidate with her understanding of you, your personality, management style, the job brief itself and couple all of this with your companies vision and values ensures a smooth process.

There’s none of this I’ll give you the top 3 or 5 people who come by my desk, Susie isolates it down to people who fit all of the aforementioned criteria. This means Susie will ask you pertinent questions to the role and experience your future employee will experience and what you want to experience.

Susie takes great care in dealing with her clients and candidates with the same professional and articulate process. This means both as a candidate and client you are treated with respect, provided with transparent information right throughout the process.

I have been assisted by Susie in finding a role and have hired many people though her in various roles.
I highly recommend you talking to Lomas Executive about your next candidate or career move.”

Felicity Hoff, Regional Sales Manager, Boral

"I worked with Susie and the Lomas Executive team and found 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."

Andrew Thackray, Human Resources, Schindler Lifts

"We have had the opportunity to work with Lomas Executive in finding various roles within our manufacturing business at Liverpool. The main brief Susie was given was to help us change the mix of skills within our company and develop a new workforce to implement a change management process due to the retirement of many long serving employees. Susie came on site to understand the skill set and competencies required, but more importantly to understand the mindset of employee needed by the business going forward.

I can certainly recommend their professional approach to the assignment from recruitment to invoice, and the partnership to the business that has allowed us to go through this process easier than expected."

Wendy Allen, HR Plant Manager, Prysmian Group

I have used a few agencies over the years but Susie's passion for her business, her network of candidates and market knowledge is exceptional and keeps me coming back to Lomas Executive."

Todd Armstrong, DTH Products

"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."
