Suzanne has been fantastic, she has carefully considered the roles she has suggested, as she has taken the time to get to know me and they have been a great match for my experience and ambitions. She was very knowledgeable and thorough, so I felt really prepared for the interviews. She has supported me, kept me fully updated at all times and stayed in touch (even on her holiday). If you have the opportunity to work with Suzanne – take it!!
The call was very informative for me, even though the role on offer is not suitable, I came away feeling quite positive – which was a breath of fresh air! Thank you for your time and advice
Suzanne is one of the most thorough and professional recruitment consultants I have had the pleasure to work with. She did everything she could to ensure l was prepared for the interview, and the role would meet my requirements. Her follow up calls throughout the process were prompt and provided detailed feedback and then through to my commencement of my new role and after remain supportive
Suzanne is helpful, professional and personable. When placing me in my current role, she took the time to fully understand my wants and requirements, and kept me updated throughout the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Suzanne is a highly skilled recruiter and not afraid of going the extra yard. What a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the market where the game seems to be putting square pegs into square holes as soon as possible to collect the commission!
Unlike many recruitment consultants that simply want to sell, Suzanne prefers to listen and engage effectively to truly get under the skin and explore the DNA of the situation
Suzanne’s personal knowledge of the function is very comprehensive, particularly the skills and attributes that truly make a difference to a function that has geographic spread, critical stakeholder engagement skills, etc. Equally her understanding and perceptiveness in getting to fully understand the needs of the situation of each organisation and role within the team is of particular note. Unlike many recruitment consultants that simply want to sell, Suzanne prefers to listen and engage effectively to truly get under the skin and explore the DNA of the situation. Throughout the process Suzanne communicate effectively, including the follow through needed to ensure candidate retention and the settling in period post placement. In short a real asset to a CPO and a pleasure to work with
I have known Suzanne from Hathaway Lane in a professional capacity for over 20 years. Most recently we have engaged with Hathaway Lane in a confidential search for Director of Procurement. This was handled in a timely and professional manner and is most definitely our number one consultancy when it comes to Procurement. Hathaway Lane provide an exemplary service , always open in communication and consultative in their approach
Suzanne started working for me about two years ago. She has so far done an excellent job for us. Suzanne stands out from other headhunters as she puts more effort in getting to truly know her customers and their culture and requirements. She has delivered some excellent candidates who until today are working in my team and are performing well above market standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Hathaway Lane

In the last year, I hired in total 8 procurement professionals and all candidates were proposed by Hathaway Lane. Not only has this been a great experience for myself as the hiring manager but the testimonial of the candidate also speaks volumes: The most professional recruitment experience ever! The way Suzanne approaches to match requirements and culture is second to none and whilst not all candidates are selected, I actually never feel that I have wasted my time by interviewing any of her candidates. I have worked with Suzanne now for more than 6 years and have had a consistent professional service which distinguishes her greatly from other recruiters in the sector

Suzanne and the team at Hathaway Lane helped me to build a new procurement function. The support, attention to detail, communication and outcome has been fantastic, against a background of a very challenging market. The feedback I have received from both successful and unsuccessful candidates has also been equally positive.
