Lisa Weston – Testimonials

“Lisa helped secure my Chief Growth Officer role at Everflow in early 2022. From the initial contact via LinkedIn and later via phone, Lisa has been nothing other than a consummate professional. She took the time to understand me, before demonstrating how she felt my skills fit with the role on offer. Through a series of conversations, she narrowed down the specifics of what was needed and by the time I was interviewed, I felt I had a very detailed grasp of the business and the people running it. The role I was offered has exceeded my expectations and this is all down to Lisa’s approach in ensuring that both parties are a match for each other, on both an work experience and personal level. Lisa kept me informed at all stages of the process and has also taken the time to touch base after my appointment. Having dealt with several recruitment specialists over the years, I can safely say that Lisa is one of the best I have had the pleasure of working with and I would highly recommend her.”
Craig Dallison – GGO, Everflow


“Lisa recently found me a new Executive position as an MD of utilities connections organisation.  She made the whole process remarkably enjoyable; she was engaging and very informative about the future proposition from the start, she really did get to know me and my values, ensuring the cultural fit was right for both me and the client. I always knew what was happening throughout the process, it was seamless!  She impressed me with her integrity, honesty and efficiency and I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to any organisations or individuals considering hiring in the Executive space.”
Roger Willey – MD, Squire Energy


“Lisa Weston is a consummate recruitment professional who has been absolute pleasure to deal with; clear, transparent and timely communication has meant that I’ve always been kept fully informed and felt valued as a candidate. Her considerable utility industry knowledge and attention to detail add real value to the hiring process and bear testimony to her diligent and sharply focussed approach. I look forward to working with her again and she would certainly be my first port of call whether as a future candidate or hiring manager.”
Nick Richardson – Lead Software Architect, Stark


“I wanted to write and formally thank you for your services in recruiting the Independent Chair for the Smart Energy Code Panel. In my role Chairing the Recruitment Committee there was a real challenge for me, because the role was so important and there was a demanding timetable set out in the Smart Energy Code. Because of your most professional work this has all been most successful. The appointed Chair attended his first Panel meeting, and I have enjoyed congratulations from across the industry. We all found your pitch for the work refreshing, the fees reasonable (certainly compared to others we reviewed) and you had really done your homework. Most importantly you knew what we needed, how to get it and delivered on your promises. To get such a fantastic set of candidates for us to interview was really outstanding; and I found your pre-sifting of candidates and your brief on each before we interviewed particularly helpful. It was all very professional and despite the challenging requirements and demanding timescales you responded excellently; most importantly we got a wonderful recruit, through a robust process. The only difficulty I had was writing letters to the very good candidates we had to disappoint, but that is the sort of problem you can really only hope to have.”
Chair of Recruitment Panel, on behalf of the Smart Energy Code Panel 


“I’ve worked with many recruitment consultants and agencies and am used to the lack of feedback and one way relationships, so when I was initially contacted by Lisa at Utility People, my expectations were that this was just another agency. Though I was unsuccessful in the application, Lisa contacted me regularly both to give feedback and keep in touch regarding potential opportunities and it was one of these opportunities that led to a successful three month interim role that evolved into the current IT Director position. I wholeheartedly recommend Lisa she understands her clients and gets to know her candidates, she is a true recruitment professional.”
Nick Bell, Inspired Energy


“I have found Lisa’s experience to be excellent. Since the first conversation, there has been a positive relationship, supported by regular contact and open discussion. We were immediately discussing roles with a great fit with interviews and a successful placement following quickly. Even when the new role had started, we continued to have regular contact and supportive discussions, making sure the role remained best fit.”
Ian Gillespie, Managing Consultant


“I started working with Utility People when we were struggling to fill the Operations Director role for our business. With their knowledge of the industry and Network of contacts, Lisa quickly understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to match our needs to the perfect candidate. No mean feat considering our isolated location in the wilds of Scotland! This appointment was followed quickly by sourcing another very experienced and technical data-flow specialist for us. We’ll continue to use Utility People to source energy industry specialists for our business and would highly recommend their services to other suppliers and candidates alike.”
Managing Director


“Lisa quickly ascertained our requirements and found great candidates whom she interviewed and short listed for us. Our main challenge was selecting from the wonderful candidates we interviewed. The successful candidate was very happy with the process, Lisa’s style, information provided and the end result.”
CEO, iSupply


“Lisa is a highly competent search professional with a huge amount of energy and passion. She endlessly strives for the best outcome for her clients, being 100% committed to ensuring the right fit for the recruiter and candidate. Lisa’s communication style easily gives confidence that you’re being well represented, and she is dedicated to keeping everyone updated at all stages – no matter how small the update may be. Lisa’s flexible approach means she always puts the candidate first, accommodating hectic schedules, making which the recruitment process far easier. I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa for a major search project from a candidate’s perspective if your business is looking to ensure absolutely the best possible experience for anyone considering a role within your business. She will absolutely succeed in carefully matching the right individual and will not compromise until that perfect match is found.”
Director of Sales and Marketing


“Lisa was great from our first contact and is still being supportive today. She took time coming to meet me for a coffee. She wanted to be sure that she knew me well enough to match me to the right company and position. Once she’d found me the perfect role, she spent time supporting me through the contract process. I start my new role on Monday and she is still checking in to ensure everything is ok and on track. Lisa’s personal style, approach and levels of engagement are second to none. I would certainly look to work with Lisa for any future recruitment needs and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to support any senior / executive recruitment needs.”
Lizzie Hieron, Operations Director


“I just wanted to say thank you for finding me and for helping me to understand the UNC role and advocating for me. I have dealt with a fair number of head-hunters as a candidate and a client over the years and your professionalism really does stand out.”
