What our clients have to say

“Rachael is an exceptional recruiter who shines as a gold standard in the industry – and has done for over a decade. Not only does she have the rare ability to go beyond the face value of a role or CV, but also she has an innate understanding of cultural fit. Because of this, she is able to bring both candidates and businesses together with outstanding skill, expertise, and professionalism for the long-term. Consistently superb, reliable, and a pleasure to work with, the result is that she is able to achieve mutually beneficial results for both businesses and candidates.”

Vian Sharif - Investec Asset Management: Head of PR and Communications

“We have used Leverton on more than one occasion. Rachael is unusual in the world of recruitment: she makes a real effort to understand what you want and suggest candidates who will fit in with the culture of the business. In my experience, this is not as easy as it sounds. So far, the people you have found us have been excellent and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

Sander Zboray - AXA Investment Managers: Head of Technology for Sales, Communications and HR

Rachael is a fantastically thorough recruiter who ensures she understands the company, role and team extremely well before looking to place someone. Her knowledge of Asset Management and in particular Fixed Income was deep and this enabled her to find candidates with strongly related skill sets. Her communication levels were very high and she was extremely professional”

Jemma Clee – J.P Morgan: Executive Director

"We turned to Rachael to help us on a search when the normal recruiters we use couldn’t find anyone to fit our requirements. She thinks outside the box and in a short space of time offered us a selection of candidates who did fit what we were looking for. Rachael actually thinks about what you need then finds the right people, rather than just ticking the box. Happy to recommend her and her very professional team.

Rachael has created a unique initiative connecting women from different asset managers allowing them to network, learn and share their stories ultimately with the aim of improving gender diversity across the industry. We appreciate and acknowledge her leadership, energy and commitment to this key industry challenge and look forward to working with her more in the future.”
