Here’s what some of our clients have to say about working with us:

“Over the past few years Gordon & Eden have helped us to hire three pivotal leadership roles to lead our ground-breaking work on the new Online Safety Regime. Sophie and the team really know their stuff and worked diligently, professionally and transparently to deliver diverse shortlists and secure us great people. Thank you Gordon & Eden.”

Kerri-Ann O’Neill
People & Transformation Director, Ofcom

I first worked with Gordon & Eden when searching for a GM for a new venture that we were creating as a standalone business. This was to be a particularly niche and entrepreneurial role for a very early-stage small company. I thus chose to partner with Gordon & Eden due to their expertise in working with such early-stage digital businesses. It was a challenging first search for a new client, but the firm worked hard to deliver a fantastic hire. After being impressed with their work the first-time round, we hired them again to search for the company’s CIO. This was a crucial hire and through extensive research, Gordon & Eden managed to secure another excellent candidate. The firm boasts an impressive and extensive knowledge of the digital market with a highly transparent mode of operating. I would highly recommend their services.

It was overall a frictionless process, with high levels of communication and transparency at all times and we are very happy with the new team additions. In summary, my experience with Gordon & Eden was nothing but positive and I wouldn’t hesitate to partner with them again in the future.”

After now having worked with Gordon & Eden on two separate occasions to recruit senior digital leaders, I would highly recommend the firm for hires within the digital and technology space.

Thanks to Sophie and team we successfully secured two fantastic hires, both of whom we are confident will play a key role in the further growth of our business

I would most definitely recommend Gordon & Eden as a firm
