Candidate Testimonials

Candidate Testimonials

James is very professional and offers a personal approach that I would recommend to any prospective job seekers or employers looking to fill a role. James also has the added advantage of having worked in the accounting profession for a number of years which has proved to be invaluable.

Rob Morris, Business Services Manager

“I have been having conversations with Steve over the last 6 months regarding opportunities that he has presented. It's been a great experience and although I decided to go with another opportunity, I valued the unbiased opinion and the genuine interest in my career and the advice given.

I would highly recommend Steve to any candidates that require someone that is not just about earning the next commission.”

Andy Chou, Associate Partner

Steve is a great guy to work with and I really appreciate not only his professionalism, but also his genuine care in helping me look for roles that are meaningful towards my career goals. I have worked with recruiters from both sides of the table and all too often they are just a salesperson chasing their monthly commission. Steve is different from the usual recruiter out there, he is genuinely focused on the customer experience, and I would highly recommend Steve and his team at Hedley Scott for both jobseekers and employers.



Charles Yuan, Manager

“Ahmed helped me to make the next move in my career as well as providing advice on where to make that move to. He took the time to understand where I was at in my career and found me a position within a matter of days. He kept me updated daily throughout the recruitment process and was always accommodating to my many questions! I would highly recommend Ahmed to any colleague looking to make their next move or firm looking to recruit.”


Stephanie Ede, Business Services Senior

“Ahmed placed me in my current position at a chartered accounting firm which is the perfect fit for my career goal as well as my personality. He took the time to understand my needs and helped me throughout the job hunting process. Ahmed provided me with honest feedback and professional advices which was in my best interest. I would highly recommend Ahmed to anyone looking for opportunities in professional services.”

James is professional to deal with and made the recruitment process easy for me. James replied to my queries in a timely manner and most importantly, understood my career path and ensured that the roles he put forward were in line with my career objectives. I highly recommend dealing with James!

John Refalo, Senior Manager

“Ahmed was very supportive when I changed my job a little over a year ago. He met up with me and really listened to what I wanted, checked up on me and didn’t push me to the first thing that would come my way. He made sure if I was going to change jobs it was going to be a good move. I couldn’t thank him enough because I am still so happy at my new job and am really enjoying it. Thanks Ahmed!”

William Buck

Rochelle Markham – Senior Accountant

“I've known Steve in a professional context for a few years now. As a client of his, I feel that he takes the time to assess my circumstances thoroughly in advance of making introductions to potential employers. He placed me in my current role which has worked out fantastically. I have recommended Steve without hesitation to a number of colleagues when they've asked for a connection to a stand-out recruiter. He knows the Sydney market well and deals with you as a partner in pursuit of a common goal, as opposed to simply treating you as his next source of commission. He's a pleasure to work with and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.”



Jack Dixon, Client Director

“Ahmed was fantastic to work with. He is very professional in his approach, and is great at what he does. I have accepted two jobs through Ahmed now and both times it has taken less than a week from initial contact to accepting the job. He is also one of the few recruiters who genuinely has your best interest at heart. I highly recommend working with Ahmed to advance in your career.”

Trent Robinson, Consultant

“Ahmed’s knowledge and experience recruiting for the accounting and professional practice sector was immensely valuable to me in moving to the next stage of my career. I really appreciated his professionalism, proactive attitude and guidance.”


LWM Group

Samuel Taber, Supervisor

“Ahmed really listened to me and I felt immediately confident in his abilities to find me the right job. He provided great industry-specific advice and guidance. Ultimately, he proved himself by taking his time and arranging an interview where I got the first and only job offer I needed. Where I am now is a perfect fit. A very easy process.”


Karla Terry – Graduate

James is an excellent recruiter that I got to know when I was looking for a job. His enthusiasm truly motivated me to chase my objectives and focus on my career. He was always super willing to reply my emails in a timely manner, take calls and schedule interviews with fantastic firms. As a candidate, I highly recommend his services!
