We worked with Nielsen Grey in the search for our UK CFO. As well as helping us to secure a very successful hire they were very easy to work with throughout; professional, reliable and honest. I look forward to working with them again.


Having worked with Nielsen Grey on a number of roles across Silverseas, we have found them to be very professional, efficient, humble and honest.

I have worked with Nielsen Grey both when looking to build my team at Biffa and when looking to develop my own career. With each interaction I find them honest, transparent, consultative and efficient in delivering results. When hiring I find them able to produce, even where competitors had previously struggled.


We used Nielsen Grey to hire our first CFO and are currently working with them on a more junior role. The hiring process was a long one but they were patient, non-pushy and helped guide us towards a successful conclusion
