I’ve been massively impressed by Virginia’s proactivity in the recruitment process. She has taken the time to get to know our business and our culture which means that the candidates she supplied for interview were very well suited to us. As a result Virginia has really helped us find round pegs for round holes. The quality of her candidates and their understanding of our culture means that they have been a step ahead of other interviewees.
When I need strategic communication support I don’t want to be swamped with CVs. What has impressed me most is the way in which Virginia develops a good understanding of the workings of the communication team enabling her to put forward people who not only tick the boxes on skills and expertise but more importantly, are a good cultural fit.
I’ve known Virginia for many years, both as a client and a consultant. Virginia’s knowledge of the UK internal communications marketplace is second-to-none and she is super-responsive. Having worked on both sides of the fence herself, she understands what is needed for a successful assignment and is extremely good at making the right match for both the client and the consultant. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Comma Partners.
With 10 years’ experience of placement, Virginia and her team always provide an impressive short list of qualified candidates, which always fit the brief. Being a boutique agency, and having a personal working knowledge of internal communications and change, means that you also get a personal and bespoke service. The process from sourcing right through to on-boarding is efficient, seamless and painless. I don’t need to go anywhere else in the market to find high-calibre communication interims.
Virginia exemplifies what's great about small, smart and agile recruitment providers: in depth understanding of the market, trends, value and pricing and most importantly, insightful understanding of the key players and their strengths. Virginia brings professionalism and perspective borne from her own experience in house and running her own business. Her reputation goes before her. I have complete confidence in recommending Comma as a top flight interim communications partner.
Virginia has a strong internal comms network and gets to know her candidates well before placing them. In doing so she's able to choose the best candidate for the role. Having worked in house in multiple organisations she knows what's required and able to carefully select the right candidates for the job. Having worked with her both as an interim and also as a client for many years I would highly recommend her.
We have been extremely impressed with Sam – she is doing a fantastic job for our global project team. She is very professional, proactive and sharp – a real star!.
