Milburn Lewis have helped us for a number of years. This has resulted in a number of helpful introductions and in the recruitment of two Senior Managers during a time of rapid expansion. One was sourced from a competitor in the local market, the other from North America. Paul understood the brief and delivered interesting candidate profiles which very closely matched our requirements.
I have subsequently engaged Paul to assist with additional searches. He is well organised, professional and ensures that he only brings to us candidates that will meet our business needs.

We have always found Milburn Lewis proactive in suggesting suitable candidates to join our team. They understand the importance of industry focus and have suggested a number of interesting profiles, both from within and outside the professional services sector.

When you work with a placement firm you notice the difference between people who are in the business as “used car dealers”, and people who are passionate about what they do.
The first are most likely to waste yours and the hiring manager’s time by pushing roles that are not of your interest, stretching candidacy and disappear into the dark without any notice. We have all been there, as job seekers.
Then you have the people who know what they are doing. Milburn Lewis clearly falls in this category. My experience has been outstanding:
1. Mr Cuthbert at Milburn Lewis has consistently given the right guidance considering market conditions and has been able to give invaluable advice in where to address my search
2. Feedback has been concise, clear and timely. I cannot stress enough how this has been helpful at times of a job search
3. He has consistently kept in touch after helping me land a great role with a top rated advisory company, helping in settle in the new role.
This points to one fact – the people at Milburn Lewis have consistently shown an outstanding work ethic that goes well beyond what I would have expected, and more than anything, they treat you as a person and a professional, rather than just as a way to earn their fee.
I would recommend Milburn Lewis without any hint of reservation.

My experience with Milburn Lewis was highly productive. It was my first time dealing with a recruiting firm/headhunter and from the moment they contacted me until I received the job offer from the company I’m still working for, they were extremely helpful in all sides of the process, from counselling on how to approach the people I was going to talk with, to advice and help in discussing salary and benefits. They were very supportive and responsive when I had questions both via email and on the phone.
Overall my experience with Millburn Lewis has been very good. I will definitely reach out to them when I will be willing to look for other opportunities.

I recently worked very closely with Paul Cuthbert from Milburn Lewis to be matched with a managerial position in internal auditing/advisory services. As he and I met, a clear vision of the direction I wanted to lead my career was presented to him, including some specific attributes of the role. In order to connect me with “the right” prospects, these specifications needed to be understood by the recruiter. Throughout the entire process I felt heard by Paul who was professional in his attention to detail, objectivity and know-how, yet personable in providing consistent feedback as the interview process progressed. Not only was I able to successfully transition into my new role, Paul’s support allowed me to negotiate key details of my contract with the confidence it demanded.
As a result, I highly recommend Milburn Lewis’ recruiting services: top quality performance that yields great satisfaction despite today’s competitive job market.

I had the pleasure to work with Leah Ronaldson from Milburn Lewis in the past on different Internal Audit positions. As a candidate, she has always offered me top level companies, being a key partner of their Audit Executives and creating long-term relationships with them. She has been very supportive and has provided the right candidates, positioning them first in line on the list of final candidates fitting with the needs of the Company. As Head of Internal Audit, I have no doubt that I will choose Milburn Lewis.
