About Hoggett Bowers

Candidate Experience

Other executive search firms take candidates for granted. How do we know that? Because they tell us so. Hoggett Bowers is delighted to be different, and we’ve earned a reputation for our straight-dealing, open, and transparent approach.

Every candidate benefits from a completely personalised experience. We work with them throughout the appointment process to ensure that their interests are protected and that they’re offered all the support and assistance they need.

We know that simple things can make a huge difference when your future is at stake, which is why we reply swiftly to all your communication, and make time to offer honest advice and insight whenever you need it. We’ll always keep you fully informed on the progress of an appointment process, and provide full feedback after meetings.

Candidates often tell us we’re the “warmest”, most supportive search consultancy they’ve come across. It’s a compliment we’re more than happy to receive – because that’s just the way we are!

I really appreciated the professionalism and candour of my discussions with David Brown and team; in both assessing me as a potential candidate and helping me understand the opportunity and potential. This gave me the insight and confidence to accept the role, having been head-hunted from my current position. Thank you!

Hoggett Bowers have been all along the process very professional : reactive, preparing well for the interviews, sealing feedback and giving feedback in a very diligent way. I felt very well accompanied through the overall process.

The service provided was excellent from start to finish - well delivered, informed and prompt, ensuring a 'good' pace was maintained throughout the process.

Really good experience from start to finish. The team were really helpful and provided a clear brief of the role and organisation early on. Communication was great - authentic, timely, clear and consistent across all the team at Hoggett Bowers.

As someone with very little experience of being in an interview situation, I found the whole process very comfortable and reassuring. Obviously, in a recently unrestricted post Covid world things are going to be a little different to the way they were 2-years previously, but that said I enjoyed the experience and was grateful for the very personable approach by both staff and clients.

Rupert was incredibly professional and great to speak with, he kept me informed at all times and gave honest and helpful feedback.

The process was very professional and thorough.

Although I was unsuccessful, I felt the whole experience of dealing with Karen Wilson a delight. I will look to deal with Karen in future as I seek other opportunities.

Timely feedback at each stage of the process. Honest candid discussions in confidence. Knowledgeable client contacts.

I appreciated the rhythm of the project. Good briefing before and a de-brief shortly after each interaction. Feedback was very clear.

Flemming was amazing as the primary contact. Always great at briefing, prepping and post interview follow up. Unfortunately, the role may not have panned out, but the experience of exploring and going through the process was seamless and very very professional.

The entire contact-period was managed in a very professional manner by HB. A friendly first contact followed by an in-depth interview with "the opportunity" has been well conducted.

Very good experience from start to finish. I was kept well informed throughout.
