What our Clients say...

"I would not hesitate to engage Barry to help fill our senior level HR vacancies. He provides a high quality search service, taking time to fully understand the needs of the role, researching thoroughly and introducing talented candidates. The most difficult part of working with Barry is making a selection decision when the quality of the short-list is so high".
Julia Paulding, Chief People Officer - Lewis Silkin
"After being placed as a candidate by Jamie some years ago, it's been a real joy to become his client and build my own team through his recruitment expertise. I have been consistently impressed with Jamie's professionalism and dedication to finding the right candidates for our company. He only presents the best candidates to me, and understands what we look for in hard and soft skills as well as team and culture fit. Jamie goes above and beyond and genuinely seems to really care about both the people looking for a new role and the clients he finds the right people for."
Head of Communications – Global Recruitment Company
"Barry consistently provides a highly professional service and I have experienced this as both a client and candidate at Miller Byrne. Barry adds value at every stage of the process, with thoughtful advice and guidance. When building out a new Learning and Talent COE, I mandated Barry who worked quickly to produce a high calibre and diverse shortlist of candidates, resulting in a very successful hire. I recently worked closely with Barry as a candidate and this resulted in my recent transition into a new CPO role which has been a fantastic opportunity. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Barry and the team at Miller Byrne"
Chris Dunford, UK Chief People Officer – Aon PLC
"I first started working with Jamie as a candidate almost 15 years ago and was really impressed with his advice, honesty and support whilst building my career. I have also worked with Jamie to find candidates for over 10 years now and he has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to recruitment, spending time to understand the cultural fit, skills and attitude required for each role. He also goes out of his way to ensure you are a happy client, is very fair and is good fun to work with".
Benjamin Murray, Alliances & Marketing Director - Globant
“Barry really took time to get to know me and understand not just my experience but what the right cultural fit for me was. He secured the perfect job match and this is down to his support and understanding of the right fit for both the hiring organisation and candidate. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Miller Byrne to others for senior HR recruitment as the experience for both myself and my CEO was absolutely superb. Very communicative, supportive and insightful."
Kelly Thompson, Group Head of HR - Petredec
"We have a long-standing relationship with Jamie and he has helped us secure exceptional talent over the years. Jamie always understands what we are looking for in terms of skills and experience, but most importantly, he understands our team culture and knows when a candidate will be a good fit. He only sends over candidates he truly believes are right for the role and his understanding of our business and our team means he can present KFH in a great light to help us secure the best talent."
Stacey Kirby, Marketing Director – Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward
"I go back to Barry again and again for HR search assignments because he understands what it takes to be a contemporary HR professional; he delivers service excellence to both candidate and client and, most importantly to me, puts in the hard effort to identify truly talented and diverse talent that is often hidden from view in our social media age".
Aaron McKenzie, Head of HR
"Jamie managed the recruitment process that saw me join Edenred 17 years ago. Since then he has helped me recruit a number of people into my marketing organisation. I continue to be impressed by his ability to find people with the right skills & personality to fit out culture & aspirations. I appreciate the honest & pragmatic approach, not only in working with us but also with the candidates".
Andy Philpott, Chief Merchant Strategy Officer – Edenred
"Not only has Barry been successful in introducing and placing many candidates for me, he has also been supportive in assisting in discussions on structuring the team and assessing the real resources required. He is quick to grasp organisational and cultural issues, appointing talented candidates. He is a ‘go to’ trusted partner when hiring in HR".
Barbara Turner, HR Director – Canopius
"I have worked with Jamie Miller for over ten years. He has proved to be an exceptional recruiter, successfully introducing highly vetted candidates, with the appropriate skills, qualifications and behaviours to a variety of positions over that time. Jamie also delivers a great experience to potential candidates, ensuring they are appropriately briefed and prepared for the process. This means that the team and I can be assured that we’ll be interviewing great quality candidates who are suitable to the role, saving us time and making the final decision that much harder. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Jamie and his team."
