Numerous organisations use our services on an exclusive basis and are delighted with the services they receive. In customer satisfaction surveys, over 80% rate our services as good to excellent.
Those recruiters who place vacancies with several agencies invariably do not get the best results. The most common complaints we hear about our competitors are:-
Loads of CVs and often the same CVs from different agencies, for me to sort out.
None of the candidates well matched to my specifications.
The candidates I took time to select were then not available (they never were- agency had not spoken to them before sending their CV).
Does this sound familiar? Eradicating problems like above, you can ensure efficient recruitment processes and carefully selected, candidate choice by entering into a Recruitment Partnership preferred supplier agreement with CY Executive Resourcing. Put simply, by committing to us we commit more time, expertise and resources to you and your vacancy under the CY Priority Service package, which includes many additional features, fee discounts and free to you benefits, such as advertising or psychometric testing – just contact us for further details of the wide range of benefits available.
With ever increasing pressures to deliver and serious consequences for those that don’t, having the right team in place is vital. Restructuring, multiple vacancies, or high interim usage would benefit from an overall talent acquisition strategy. CY has the required expertise to devise unique strategies that will build the teams you aspire and we will work hard and smart to deliver them. Time and again the CY approach has succeeded, even where others have previously failed to appoint.
By TW, Director of Finance
"I engaged CY Executive Resourcing Ltd to deliver a comprehensive search and selection process for six senior manager vacancies. My requirement was to recruit only the best and I believe that has been delivered without compromise across all six of the posts. This has been evidenced very clearly for those candidates now in post and who have each established in short order their credibility and calibre with both clinical and managerial colleagues. The six posts were a combination of Assistant Director and Senior Manager roles in a new & innovative structure.
I set a challenging timetable and was demanding as regards the calibre of process. This was delivered within the agreed timeframe and with a relevant choice of experienced candidates for each role. Long listed candidates had been interviewed and objectively assessed by my CY Recruitment Manager, enabling effective selection for the shortlists.
I am clear that CY and I worked well, they understood our requirements in detail and used their knowledge of the market to identify the best candidates who could meet the challenges of the role, as well as offering alternative solutions to give more variety when deciding the final shortlist.
My CY Recruitment Manager was a very helpful addition to our final interview panel, providing valuable support and advice.
From start to finish, this has been a job very well done and done in a very good way - professional, candid, objective and absolutely retained my confidence throughout. CY have done us proud".
Hi Teresa / Jo, I would just like to thank you both again for helping to find this new position for me. I had my last day on Wednesday and l am really looking forward to starting on Monday. I found CY Resourcing one of the most approachable agencies and easiest to deal with. I always thought there was good communication and you made it much easier for me to look for new jobs especially as I had never been through this process before. I would certainly use CY if I ever found myself in this same position again.
“CY handled a recruitment campaign for me for a senior finance post with an unusual portfolio. They took time to understand the post and were able to generate an exceptional shortlist within a tight timescales and were very responsive to our needs”.
“CY was brilliant in securing for me a role as Interim Head of Finance for one of their NHS clients. They took time to understand my skills and what I was looking for in my next assignment. His relaxed and warm approach made it a joy to work with them”
“You have done a cracking job of getting a strong field. There is no doubt that you exceeded all my expectations in terms of the search. I am delighted with the CFO we then appointed, he is a great colleague, has fitted into the team really well and his depth of experience really shows. We have now decided to shrink the size of the Board and there is no doubt in my mind this appointment has been key in having the confidence to do that.”
"My CY consultant is one of the most enthusiastic people I have ever met. He has a dynamic approach which ensures he builds long lasting relationships based on trust and integrity. His work ethics are brilliant and fits parties together for maximum benefit."
"We utilised the services of CY for the identification and recruitment of our interim and substantive Finance Directors. Our experience of CY Resourcing is that they were proactive, professional and kept us fully informed of developments at all stages both before and after appointment. The field of candidates presented was strong and enabled us to have a competitive process. As a result of our experience we have no hesitation in recommending CY to other organisations".
CY precisely matched my skills to the client requirements, which resulted in a very rewarding contract. A first class recruitment consultant, supported by a very professional organisation in CY Resourcing and I look forward to working again with them in the future”.
Given the wide brief, I was pleased with the diversity of the CVs provided and felt that they all met the brief but in different ways. I was impressed with the depth in which you understood the applicants shortlisted particularly with your instinct for a good candidate. I could have appointed two or three of the candidates presented, which is an excellent dilemma to have. Overall, I was pleased with the service provided, and feel as if we've made a good appointment as a result. I would definitely use CY Resourcing again.
‘My recruitment consultant is a star! She is a professional who is diligent and committed to finding her candidates a suitable position. Nothing is too much trouble. She is approachable and makes you feel valued. A great asset to CY resourcing’
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your support with our Director of Operational Finance recruitment campaign, and to let you know that I received some very positive feedback about the process and the selection day itself – credit to you! Many thanks for all your efforts and support.
“I would like to thank you personally for your honesty, excellent communication and candour - I really appreciate it. Should anyone be considering registering with an agency, I would have no hesitation in recommending that they should contact the CY Team."
I have used CY on many occasions where they have sourced senior staff for me. They have always demonstrated a very professional approach, an ability to find the right candidates and in my judgement they consistently outperform the competition in this area of their work.
“I've worked with CY for a few years now both as a client and as an interim. I have found them attentive, always helpful and listen to what I need irrespective whether I'm a client or a contractor.
Delighted to recommend CY having worked with them on the recruitment of our Director of Operational Finance. Extremely professional service throughout from before campaign started and every step of the way through to appointment, including very positive feedback about the process and the selection day itself. We have no hesitation in recommending this company.
Thank you for your help and efficient assistance throughout the last 4 months, knowing that someone is there to process these as well as you do and that this means regular payments makes my life as a contractor a lot easier and less stressful.
I would like to place on record how good the service provided is for the temps that I have had. You have been very supportive and also open and honest in your dealings with me which I very much welcome and respect.
Thank you for the excellent and trouble free service
"We used CY Executive Resourcing to support our recruitment of our new Director of Finance. I was very pleased with the service provided. They knew the field very well and worked with us to ensure we were provided with an exceptional set of candidates to a very tight timetable. These were matched extremely well to the requirements of the role and our person specification. They made sure that her support dovetailed with our assessment process and the outcome has resulted in an appointment with which we are delighted. Overall I was very pleased with the value for money provided by the service”.
I have been bowled over by the total professionalism and attention to detail that I have experienced. Most importantly, what I did not receive from other agencies, you really “got” what I was looking, working so hard on my behalf, tirelessly putting me forwards for suitable positions that were carefully selected to fit my experience, personality and qualifications. I have just accepted an offer on my dream job, with a very lovely company, and I am very happy. CY Resourcing should be very proud.
“We have used CY when recruiting to Director and Deputy posts. Repeatedly, they have delivered a wide ranging and comprehensive Search & Selection process, strategising most effectively to overcome various circumstantial difficulties. They generated an excellent long list and we ended up with 3 individuals who were appointable. As a result, the vacancies have been filled with exceptional individuals whose skills match exactly the specification we provided. The work that CYER put in to understanding the Trust and its requirements was excellent. Their sound, knowledgeable advice was most helpful and communication with all sides throughout was great. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by CY Executive Resourcing.”
CY briefed me in full about the posts and what the requirements were to enable me to make the decision on whether to progress. They prepared me well for the interview checking I was able to cover all aspects, ensuring I could explaining my skills/achievements with clear deliverables. In taking up the post I have found it just as had been explained to me which has enabled me to provide just what the client required from the appointment. I have also been very impressed with the admin from issuing and completion of contract to regularly weekly payments being made.
“We were very pleased to have such a large number of applicants for our Finance Director post, which allowed us to draw up a shortlist of strong candidates”.
"A big thank you to all at CY. I was signed on with several agencies but CY was undoubtedly the most helpful and efficient."
“You have brought together an impressive and varied array of talent and I feel confident we will be able to make an excellent appointment”
The support I received from CY was excellent. They are very professional, thorough and friendly. It was always a pleasure to speak with them. I am delighted with the help they provided and am grateful to have secured an excellent role with their help.
"The Director of Finance recruitment campaign was conducted professionally, was properly focussed on candidates appropriate for this challenging role and I was kept well informed throughout with regular opportunities to shape the campaign. I am delighted with the appointment.
I would like to put on record my personal thanks for your professionalism and positivity in my search for a new position. You certainly came up with some good roles and companies that excited me. Most importantly you differentiated yourselves from the other agencies and I would definitely recommend you. I look forward to using your services as a recruiter when I start my new role.
“We worked with CY to recruit our Director of Finance. This assignment was particularly important as the Trust had been unsuccessful in recruiting to this post for 12 months prior to CY becoming involved. They worked tremendously hard to provide an excellent shortlist for our post. It was clear to us they had a very strong network across the NHS Finance world, and a range of candidates currently working in the private sector. We were very impressed with their tenacity and almost instinctive nature in drawing suitable candidates to our attention. We ended up with a strong shortlist and had a choice of appointable candidates from the final interview stage.”
CY have been fantastic. Professional, knowledgeable and supportive they have truly helped me through the whole process of looking for the right position. I always felt they really understood me as an individual, what I needed and where I would fit it in. Not something you get with most agencies who treat you as just another candidate and not as an individual. Thank you to all the staff who have been brilliant.
I engaged CY to deliver a comprehensive search and selection process for six senior manager vacancies. My requirement was to recruit only the best and I believe that has been delivered without compromise across all six of the posts.

Thank you and your team for everything you have done in trying to secure me a role, your support and encouragement has been very much appreciated. Rest assured the next time I am in the job market I will be in touch (you don’t get off that lightly!) and of course if I find myself needing to recruit I would definitely come to you to help find me somebody.
‘Without CY Executive Resourcing we wouldn’t have obtained a quality shortlist or the right person for our DoF post. The service was personal, detailed, conscientious and timely and I would personally recommend the company to anyone seeking to recruit a senior manager.’
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the fantastic service you offer and deliver. You have been very proactive, call me when you say you are going to, and pass on very useful information and tips, also constructive comments pre and post interview. I am sure your colleagues are as diligent too, an amazing Company that I would promote to anyone looking for employment or employers looking to recruit.
I was really very impressed by the service that you provided in the recruitment process for the Director of Finance post. You were quick and responsive to our request for assistance and gave a very clear and unambiguous timeline for the process. This was matched by your clear request for specific information that would enable the candidates to make their applications. You gave me confidence in the approach you took in helping the Trust recruit to this very important post and were able to deliver an interesting and credible set of candidates for shortlisting. From this process we have made an appointment that I am sure will help the Trust to successfully continue with its journey forward. I would be pleased to engage with you and CY Resourcing in the future if the need arises.
"I still cannot believe the field you have managed to achieve, you have done a great job. We are spoilt for choice”.
We engaged CY after having two unsuccessful rounds of adverts through NHS jobs. I was initially hesitant about the cost and value of an agency to support the substantive recruitment process. After providing an initial brief and detailed discussion on my expectations for the role, I was very impressed at the proactive approach used and how informed I was kept throughout the process. CY were very knowledgeable with regards to candidates submitted and added genuine value, with the time I saved through the short-listing process. All of those on the long-list were strong candidates who were genuinely interested in our role. Having now successfully filled the role and exceeded my expectations on service, I would have no hesitation in recommending CY to my peers.
"Having managed our Chief Finance Officer & Chief Operating Officer vacancies, I would say CY services are very good. Efficient. Effective. Good communication. I would recommend them to other CCGs".
"We have been delighted with the services you and your company have provided and impressed with the calibre of the interim FD, particularly when other companies failed to offer any credible players".
“CY responded to our needs extremely quickly with a range of strong and available candidates who were well briefed on our needs. As a consequence we secured an exceptional interim Finance Director who helped the Trust to maintain momentum at a critical stage in our development.
“I am very pleased to recommend the senior management recruitment services offered by CY which I have found to be very professional, focused and effective. I have been particularly impressed by the sound advice offered to both clients and prospective candidates alike that helps deliver effective and enduring solutions.'
We engaged CY to carry out a comprehensive Search & Selection process for our Director of Finance vacancy. We were very impressed with the input of CY. They understood and were responsive to our needs, worked diligently to attract the calibre of applicant we were looking for, provided extensive choice for the shortlist, attended the Selection Event and effectively supported us through the appointment process, resulting in a very successful appointment. Keen to endorse our corporate identity and branding, they also produced an impressive Candidate Information Pack and employed different ways of marketing the vacancy. Overall a very positive experience.
“CY provided a highly professional executive search (included both those with NHS & private sector experience). The trust had a final short list comprising 4 high calibre candidates and was delighted to offer the post to an exceptional candidate. I would have no hesitation in recommending CY. They will understand what you require, provide a tailored marketing campaign that meets your needs and will enable you to have a quality short list. “
“CY supported us with a campaign to recruit to a very senior Finance leadership role. They were thorough and professional throughout the campaign, which was a resounding success. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”
“I am very pleased with the way CY supported the Trust through the process of recruiting a Director of Operational Finance. The successful candidate will, I'm sure, be a great asset to me and the Trust”
It's great working with the CY team. They always deliver and exceeds customer expectations. With a smile too!"
I was very impressed with your professional and personable approach to understanding the brief and forwarding details of suitable candidates. When seeking interims, it is so often clear that agencies do not take account of the clients specifications and I frequently end up with many unsuitable CVs. After many years in NHS management, it was a first time I have shortlisted and interviewed three candidates, all of whom would have been suitable for the role. I have also appreciated your continued support during the assignment.
“CY provided the Trust with an excellent service for the recruitment of our Director of Finance. Their thorough head hunting activities were particularly effectively in generating great choice of candidates, including very relevant, less obvious options. CYER provided high level care throughout the recruitment process and were very supportive in overcoming candidate issues. We would strongly recommend their services to other Trusts”.
The candidates that Kim and the rest of the team got us for three posts you’ve worked on were really good. A strong field with 4-5 what were certainly comfortably appointable. Also Kim was very helpful if liaising with our HR department and the candidates re interviews etc.
“CY Executive Resourcing ran our Deputy Director of Finance campaign. This was a very challenging piece of recruitment, partly due to the very high calibre candidate we sought and our more remote location limiting local candidate availability. CY carried out an extensive search and generated numerous worthy options including health sector candidates from overseas. Unforeseen delays in the process did not deter them and we worked together in a practical, creative way to explore new talent streams. Although this innovative approach took some time, it was definitely worth the wait, resulting in an excellent appointment who is doing very well and a great asset to the Trust”.
“I approached CY Resourcing with a view to helping us with recruiting a qualified accountant governing body lay member. Although non-executive recruitment was not a core area of business when I made initial contact, because of their sector knowledge and professional network, they were able to source excellent candidates at pace and we recruited an exceptional candidate who has really strengthened the governing body. I would recommend CY Resourcing without hesitation.”
“It’s been a pleasure for me to have such smooth stress free processes and reliable payments – the best I’ve experienced from any agency. So a big thank you to you both”.
Teresa offers a tailor made service which I found to be quite rare with some agencies, where so many people would put you forward for an unsuitable job Teresa only suggested jobs she thought would fit. When dealing with Teresa I felt like I was the only candidate she was dealing with, never was I made to feel like she did not have time for me and I felt like she really knew me and exactly what I was looking for. If ever I knew someone who was looking for work in this industry Teresa is the first person that I would recommend without hesitation
