“CIPFA Penna Team Philippa Watkins and Anthony Hopkin recently recruited me to the Service Head of Finance and Procurement at Tower Hamlets Council. The process was rigorous, as you would expect, and involved several steps: psychometric and aptitude testing; scenario based activities; and two rounds of interviews.

I was kept fully informed by Philippa and Anthony about progress through the process and what I should expect at each stage. They also worked hard to fit the various components around my busy work schedule.

Once I knew I had been successful, they liaised with Tower Hamlets to progress the various administrative requirements promptly. I've now started and had several calls to see how things are going. I have also used the CIPFA Penna team for recruiting temporary and permanent staff in my previous roles and I know that this level of service is the norm for all of the campaigns that they manage. I would highly recommend their services from both a recruiting and candidate perspective.”
