Candidate Testimonials

​"Luis is the most authentic recruiter I've ever met. All other recruiters are good with their words and but not that much in their actions. In this respect Luis is unparalleled. He is also very good in a career advisory role and a good negotiator."


​"My experience of working with Luis is just very professional and exceptional. He showed genuine interest of what my circumstances, skill set and needs were; He was very understanding with great negotiation skills. He offered immense support throughout the process and he would work with you for a smoother transition even after the placement. He was always happy to communicate even outside of work hours. He has a very positive attitude and a friendly personality; and I would highly recommend him to anyone."


​"Luis was very hands on, caring and pro active as well as a really nice guy. I had a job offer within a number of days."


"​Steve is a lovely, genuine and decent guy in an industry plagued by vultures. He made the effort to understand me both in terms of my professional experience, values and personality to help match me with employers that would suit. Would recommend Steve to any employer or candidate looking for a sympathetic and smart recruiter. Thank you."


​"Jacqui provided a fantastic experience through the whole process."


​"It was great working with Steve. He took the time to understand my career goals and the reason for leaving my previous job. Then, he presented me with opportunities to choose from based on what I needed. The firms presented to me were quality firms, and he sat through with me to narrow down the selection to one firm. Steve has also taken the time to check in on me regularly, before and after I started, and he intends to regularly check in to see how I am doing. I would not hesitate to reach out to Steve should I ever need to again or recommend him to my friends or colleagues within the professional practice space."

Jet McCarry, Senior Accountant

​“From day one Steve was professional in his approach to assisting me with my last career move. He provided me with the support and advice I required in order to make the decision process clearer. Unlike many other recruiters, which would inundate me with potential jobs, Steve listened to what it was I was hoping to achieve and only presented jobs to me which met my requirements. After each interview, he always provided timely feedback from the interview process and provided guidance on how to proceed. Thanks to Steve's support I have landed a job which has been both challenging and rewarding. For that I am very grateful.”

Crowe Horwath

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

“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.”
