Lisa Weston Testimonials

“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 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
