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!
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
I secured my position using Hathaway Lane it was my first graduate job and I was looking for work during a pandemic, I had almost given up on my job search I had limited access to resources due to university being closed and felt lost with it all and then I met Suzanne! I would highly recommend Hathaway Lane and Suzanne to any hiring procurement department or procurement professional looking for work. The position she secured for me suits me as a person and the stage of my career perfectly it almost feels as if the job was made for me. She always kept my best interests at heart and keeps in touch even though I have already secured and begun working in my position it is abundantly clear that she cares about her candidates and who they are as people. She is open and honest about companies and positions and does her best to keep updates as regular as possible and not allow processes to stagnate. I always felt very prepared for any interviews Suzanne arranged and always felt I could discuss any concerns or questions with her. She did an amazing job and she is absolutely built for and passionate about the work she does and I cannot thank her enough. I would definitely use Hathaway Lane in the future either in a professional or personal capacity.
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 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.
I would like to highly recommend Suzanne to anyone in the procurement field. When I was made redundant, Suzanne kindly made time to talk to me an advise on how best to project my skills to a future employer. Her guidance and mentoring was best in class. Within a week I found employment with a huge pay rise. Without her guidance I may not have found this opportunity. Thank you Suzanne.
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!!
Suzanne stands out from other headhunters as she puts more effort in getting to truly know her customers and their culture and requirements
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’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
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
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 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.
