By keeping close and involved Silentium Partners was able to respond immediately to our talent requirements never failing to impress us with the quality of the candidates they put in front of us. In the future I anticipate my business getting more and more involved with helping VC & PE companies get the best performance out of their investments through my mentoring and developing existing executives or helping to de-risk selection of replacements. Silentium Partners experience and contacts will mean they will always remain at the top of my address book.”

“I have known and worked with Silentium Partners over a number of years and have found their knowledge and expertise within the TMT space is invaluable both as a candidate and as a client.
Silentium Partners has been instrumental in making a number of introductions on my behalf and managing those processes right from the offset ensuring the experience was well informed at all stages and advising me on what best next steps to take.
Equally Silentium Partners has supplied some exceptional individuals. Silentium Partners have a team of headhunters that operate as C level commercial advisors and as headhunters.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Silentium Partners to a Venture Capitalist looking to attract top C level talent to run, grow or transform firms within their portfolio which have Technology at the heart of their service offering.”

“Silentium Parnters are at the very pinnacle of executive recruiting in the United Kingdom. Silentium Partners introduced me into KPMG London in 2007 as KPMG was integrating its European presence. Although my CV and professional performance were enough to attract multiple interviews with several of KPMG’s managing Partners, I am absolutely sure that it was the professional interview coaching provided by Silentium Partners that enabled me to become culturally “British” enough to eventually secure an offer for a Director position. Silentium Partners have a unique process to find the right win-win situation for all concerned.”
Ken Jacobson-Group Director, Global Media and Communications, Dimension Data Holdings plc
“Having known and worked with Silentium Partners for many years I can say with total confidence that they are not only 100% effective in achieving the goal but they are also a credible and trustworthy executive search firm to partner with. Silentium Partners have exceptional capabilities to put exactly the right solution together for both the client’s and candidate’s requirements and so I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Mark Trevor-Commercial Director at Vaultex UK
“I have worked with many recruitment consultancies both as a customer and as a candidate but few like Silentium Partners that brings something unique to the table.
Best summarised as an ability to understand and convey the critical elements of a role; an instinctive grasp of a candidate’s strengths/relevant experience and a creative approach which enables them to match employers and candidates very successfully.”
Graeme Millar-Chief Executive Officer at JT (Jersey Telecom)
“I have worked with Silentium since 2009 both as a client and a candidate. They are an exceptional executive search firm they rank high amongst the other recruitment consultancies. Silentium really understand what a business needs from a strategic perspective requirement and brings quite amazing candidates to the table. I have always been particularly impressed by the way in which Silentium present candidates that exactly meet a job spec and also one or two ‘wild cards’ who will really challenge a client’s thinking about exactly what they want and need from a role.
I worked with Silentium Partners when they were recruiting for a large MBI and I have no hesitation in recommending Silentium Partners to Private Equity and Venture Capital funded businesses looking to hire top C level technology talent.”
Jim Odell-Partner at Kemp Little Consulting
“Silentium Partners are an outstanding source of candidates for senior executive roles in the Technology, Consulting and Telco Industries. Their knowledge of these industries and the key players in them are unrivalled.
As a client you can be confident of a successful and well structured campaign. As a candidate, if you aren’t on their books, then you will miss some of the most interesting roles that are never advertised.”
Kerry Davies-CEO at Abatis
“Silentium employs professional and experienced recruitment consultants who understand the requirements and pressures of firms at the most senior levels. They have a good understanding of the technical side of IT consulting assignments and maintain calm in difficult and complex recruitment processes.
They works on developing long term relationships based on mutual trust and work hard to place candidates in the right firm for them based on their skills and strengths. I have no hesitation in recommending Silentium Partners.”
John Enoch-Director, Technology Risk at Deloitte
“Silentium Partners are thorough, reliable and tenacious professionals. They listen to what’s needed and then make it happen. Getting the right people into a company is so fundamental that you need a partner who are unbiased and can understand requirements and problems both from a candidate and a client perspective. Silentium do that better than anyone else I know.”
Rob Watson-Director Human Resources at Azzurri Communications
“Silentium Partners was approached by Alcatel Lucent to run and manage a number of strategic hires within our business which are typically viewed as tough roles to recruit against. Silentium not only completed on all three senior hires but they also found us a fourth individual who was exceptional enough for us to also offer him a role which the candidate subsequently accepted.
My view on Silentium is that they are market sector experts, have a vast network in the technology space, and over and above all are personable people I would enjoy wotking with again.
I am more than happy to discuss this recommendation in further detail.”
Olivier André-Global VP Transport Market at Alcatel-Lucent
“Silentium recruited me for my role in Alcatel-Lucent. Their method of recruitment provided the client and myself with realistic feedback – one of the very difficult areas to understand in the recruitment process.
Silentium was professional and honest – forthright and open. The advice enabled and assisted me in getting through very stringent interviews. Silentium offered good value for money. I hope to work with them again in the future. I would have no problems in recommending Silentium Partners to anyone requiring to fill a role at the highest level.”
