Viv's bio

I established the HR team for Search in Crawley in 2003, and we now proudly work with some of the UK's most sought after employers.

I have over 30 years senior recruitment experience with 20 years dedicated to identifying and placing senior HR professionals in a wide range of sectors. I have a very large network built up over the years and I have become well known within my network for delivering an honest and consultative service to my clients and candidates alike. HR professionals that I’ve supported over the years appreciate my straightforward and delivery focused approach.

So, for any assistance on any HR related recruitment matter, please get in touch.

 

 

What people say about us

Client

“I can't thank Georgi from Search HR enough for assisting me in appointing a new HR Manager to replace me as I leave the business after 13 years.

I love this business and Georgi really understood that, ensuring to add the most personable approach to this process to make this not only a pleasure but also find us a gem of an HR Manager."

​"Viv placed me in my current role and it was a very refreshing encounter. Viv is professional, personable and honest. He kept me informed at each stage of the process, even if that was 'no news'.

I would unhesitatingly use Viv again from a candidate perspective, I would also use him from a client perspective and encourage others to do the same."

Candidate

Aly Muzzall

"​I know when I call Stuart I will get an honest assessment of our requirements and some good steers to attract the right candidates. He always manages to source us some great CV's and we are then able to recruit talented employees who really add to the team.

His understanding of the business and the skills we like makes him and his team a joy to deal with."

He is truly professional and provides a first class service. I have no hesitation in recommending Viv to any organisation."
