Clients

Catalyst work closely with a small number of clients to ensure that we understand their company, strategy and ethos. We can therefore provide candidates that not only fit technically, but perhaps more importantly, on a cultural and personal level.

"I have known Chris for over 7 years now and whenever I’ve had a vacancy to fill he has been able to put in front of me candidates of exactly the right calibre but just as importantly candidates that will fit into our company culture quickly."

Ed truly takes time to understand the business. In our early days he worked with us to articulate our message to ensure we attracted the right people for our business, that would help drive our longer term goals. He takes time to listen, understands the pressures and continually presents us with good candidates. He applies this to both sides of any placement ensuring a long term fit for all parties. One to be recommended and retained, an asset for any business.

We've hired Ed a number of times to assist in our recruitment and each time we have been impressed with his attitude, professionalism and ability to make great judgement calls. Ed has an integrity that, frankly, is not often seen with recruiters and because of that there is a great deal of trust between us. Ed works well independently but also is a great communicator. For Ed, only the highest standard will do and ultimately, as his customer, our satisfaction is his main priority. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Ed.

Over the last 9 years I have engaged Ed Hoad on a number of occasions to source top quality candidates at a variety of levels. Without fail he has been able to provide excellent candidates that meet if not exceed my expectations. He then manages the interviews and feedback with ease, and once at the critical offer stage, he is excellent at shepherding candidates through the resignation and counter offer phases. It’s tempting fate, but Ed is the only consultant I use that has a 100% offer to commencing record.
