John Macdonald - Vice President HR & Administration Lamprell PLC

I have been personally engaged with The McNair Partnership on around 25 executive and senior management level assignments, some of which have been of a very sensitive nature. From my experience, their key strengths are their understanding of the EPC oil and gas sector, their ability to bring and thoroughly evaluate a wide range of quality candidates to the table with a global reach, their rapid response to some very challenging requests and their ability to navigate potentially difficult issues along the way.

The attribute that has impressed me the most about the McNair team in UK and Dubai has been their commitment to managing candidate expectations. They place a high priority on frequent communication between candidates and the client and are extremely skilful in maintaining candidates’ enthusiasm and interest levels. At the offer stage, they have tremendous ability to balance the interests and aspirations of both candidate and client whilst in the post-offer stage, the McNair partnership is committed to maintaining contact with their placements and helping to ensure a smooth transition during the first 6-12 months.
I have been involved with the recruitment of executives and senior managers for over 15 years and, based on their performance, I would rank the McNair Partnership amongst the best in the business. I shall have no hesitation in continuing to engage them.
