When Andrew asked if he could support us on our FC role on an exclusive basis I was a little dubious however I was more than impressed with how he went about things. For every type of candidate we wanted to see Andrew not only had access to their CV’s but knew each and every one of them inside out. He is a great asset to Carnegie and we look forward to using him again.
CFO - Private Equity Infrastructure Firm

It is very unusual to meet a recruiter with such a detailed and specific market awareness. It is what gives Andrew his competitive edge and the reason we will use him again and again.
Head of HR - UK Private Equity House

"Guy is the best recruiter I have worked with here in London. He placed me in my current role having recognized the skills and qualities I had to offer a potential employer in a time when most other recruiters didn’t want to work with me because I had taken a career break. Guy is both professional and friendly, sharp and no nonsense type of person who actually reads candidate’s CV. He understands the role requirements and needs of the employers as well as the experience of those applying for them thus being able to translate candidates experience to prospective employers rather than relying on key words in the job spec / candidate CV. In my dealings with Guy I could see that he is well respected by his clients who value his opinion and trust his instinct. I recommend Guy / Carnegie to any potential employers and candidates alike without hesitation."
Senior Hedge Fund Middle Office Executive - New Start-Up Hedge Fund

Guy Steel is a very reliable, well connected and informed head hunter, I worked with him recently as a candidate and had a very good and successful experience.
COO Asset Manager

We first worked with Andrew when we were looking to expand our finance function in London. He was immediately credible in respect of his knowledge of the market and the sector. His approach was commercial and practical, with no sales chat - refreshing and welcome. I would not hesitate to use him again in the future.
HR Director - Private Equity

Andrew at Carnegie really took the time to understand exactly what our requirements were for a fairly bespoke role. Therefore, he only sent CVs that were relevant, meaning that the process was a quick and efficient one, resulting in an excellent hire. He comes highly recommended.
Partner, Private Equity Firm

We have used Guy to help us with Recruitment within our Middle Office and Investments area on several occasions and he has been extremely successfully in making placements with the Company. He has a detailed and strong understanding of the company and our requirements when we are hiring.
Senior HR Manager @ Top-Tier Fund of Hedge Fund

I worked with Ibrahim for a short period whilst he recruited part-qualified accountants for my previous organisation. I found him to be extremely diligent and professional during this time, whilst being personable and easy to work with. Ibrahim gave the impression that he would be an excellent recruiter for candidates, in terms of the knowledge provided and by going the extra mile for them. We secured a number of positions for candidates during the short time he recruited with me and on this basis, I would work with Ibrahim again.
HR Officer, leading Fund Administration firm

Having met Guy initially for an informal chat, I feel that he listened to my requirements for a new employer and identified a possible lead straight away. After initially interviewing with the client and being unsuccessful I went back a few weeks later and was successful second time around. Since this time I have been very happy in my role and cannot thanks Guy and Carnegie enough. We remain friends and I have attended several social events and this gives the recruitment process at Carnegie an edge over its competitors. I feel the company listens to its clients issues and provides a tailored service to which I was happy to be part of.
Institutional Client Service Executive - Medium-sized Asset Manager

We used Andrew and as of all the recruiters we met, Andrew was the most straight forward and honest. He presented a relatively concise shortlist and it was refreshing to find out that we could have happily hired all three! His sector understanding is second to none and he provided constant support and advice throughout the process.
COO - Alternative Asset Management business

I have worked with Guy for over 10 years as our recruitment partner. He is an exceptionally good consultant, reliable, straightforward and gives you confidence that he will deliver. I have no hesitation in inviting Guy to meet our recruiting managers as his industry knowledge and experience is 1st class and most importantly he has a handle on our culture that enables him to choose the right personalities for our teams. I can highly recommend Guy as someone that you would want recruiting for your business.
Head of HR @ Boutique Asset Management firm

Guy has been assisting with recruitment in our Operations, Sales and Investment areas for in excess of 8 years and has proven to be extremely successful at identifying and placing high calibre staff within our organisation. We find Guy to have a very strong understanding of our business needs and the types of candidates that would succeed within our organisation. He also has an ability to work with us in mapping and establishing the exact requirements for those roles that are not always the easiest to recruit for due to their very specialised nature. Overall, we find Guy very easy to work with and an excellent recruitment professional.
Senior HR Manager @ Global Asset Management firm

Guy has now successfully recruited 3 analysts into my team. He understands what we need as a business and, more importantly, gets that vital ingredient which is, of course, cultural fit. If you are looking to recruit a good PM team - look no further!
PM - Hedge Fund

I have been very impressed by Andrew and have noticed the difference between Carnegie and the other recruitment company I have been working with. Andrew has provided me with some very useful background on the individuals to prep me for the interviews and also given me some very constructive and timely feedback.
Senior Fund Accountant, Private Equity

"I have known Guy for a number of years, and have found him to be a really honest and supportive consultant. We have discussed a couple of roles over the years, and he took the time to get to know me and my skills, so that he had a good understanding of my suitability, and could be sure any roles were a perfect fit. He is a great help when preparing for an interview, highlighting positive areas, and also challenging you to address any potential areas of weakness. In CV guidance, he will ensure that you present your skills in the most advantageous way, and forces you to think hard about the role, and the contribution you can make to the business. His key skill, I think, is in matching you to a culture that will suit your personality, this is so important in the workplace and sets you up for success. I'd like to thank him for his help in securing my new role which is an ideal fit for me and my skills and experience."
Wholesale Client Service Manager - Growing & Entrepreneurial Asset Manager

We have worked with Carnegie on a number of different assignments, including a number of Equity Research roles, Sales & Marketing and the Private Client business. Carnegie has consistently provided a very high level of service and has demonstrated a very good understanding of our business and its recruitment needs.
COO, Asset Manager

We had a great experience using Carnegie and in particular their Senior Consultant Andrew Hindley, to fill a vacancy for us. He took time to really understand the role and our requirements and accordingly was able to provide a very high quality shortlist of candidates, one of whom I am delighted to say was offered the job! I found Carnegie's service exemplary and a human and it was a pleasure to deal with someone with high professional standards, a pleasing demeanour and with someone who seemed genuinely interested in his clients and candidates a quality I often find lacking in other Recruitment agencies. I would definitely recommend Carnegie Consulting and utilise their services in the future.
