Henley’s Director of Research, Helen Davies, writes about the importance of the Candidate Experience:

“Henley prides itself on how a candidate’s experience is absolutely at the heart of all of our interactions, whether it’s discreetly contacting an individual for the first time, making sure that they are sufficiently private to have such a conversation, discussing the possibilities that a new opportunity may provide, gently encouraging people to consider something different when they were not actively seeking a change, or accompanying them throughout the final stages of the role negotiations.

In and amongst the daily noise of candidates’ current commitments, be they professional or personal, it is so important to remember that the outcome of our discussions has the potential to have a huge impact on their world as they know it going forward and it is important to treat the dialogue with the respect and time that such a discussion warrants.”

“Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I really enjoyed working with you and I’m impressed by your approach to getting me placed appropriately. This is an awesome opportunity for me and my family, thanks again.” – US based candidate, 2019
