Testimonials

"Chantal successfully placed me in an in-house position with a leading investment bank. She is a very experienced professional with an outstanding insider knowledge of the industry. Chantal understood the nexus of my personal motivation, expectation and previous work experiences and was able to communicate it effectively to my prospective employer. She always provided me with reasonable and realistic estimations regarding the new position throughout the entire process. In addition to her professional competence, her support had a personal and empathic character which allowed her to focus on matching my interest in finding me a suitable position. I am very grateful for her support and advice and happy with my new role."
Constantin Zimmermann (Candidate)

"Working with Chantal has been a great pleasure. She is a friendly and experienced professional and knows the industry very well. Chantal has a very good feeling in terms of what positions may be a good fit, both from a qualifications/experience and a personality point of view. She takes time to discuss relevant job descriptions and she has a very good understanding of the client's needs and where the client may be flexible and where not. Chantal provides updates on a regular basis and makes sure the ball keeps rolling, and I think that her persistence and results oriented approach is a very valuable asset in terms of getting you the job you want."
Vice President, Investment Bank (Candidate)

"Chantal has worked as a supplier to provide outstanding service into a number of our client accounts over a number of years. I have found her exceptionally professional in her approach to dealing with sometimes changing circumstances, respectful of the onsite team arrangements, dilligent and thoughtful in her approach and as a recruitment partner at the mid/senior level cannot fault her in her knowledge of the market."
Director, Recruitment Process Outsourcing Provider (Client)

"Working with Chantal has been an absolute pleasure from start to finish. She is as personable as she is professional and the whole process of finding my new role has felt like a true partnership. She has an almost unique approach to recruitment, combining an in depth personal knowledge of her clients and a rare willingness to see transferrable skills in her candidates rather than just positions and professional qualifications. This meant that she was able to help me make a far from obvious career change in a very tough market. There is no comparison between Carter Clarke and any other recruitment firm I have ever dealt with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Carter Clarke to anyone thinking of a change in career, or just looking for some advice on their next move."
Alastair Ferguson (Candidate)

"Chantal stands out amongst any recruitment consultant I have come across because she knows her institutional clients' needs and team dynamics and brings this insight to her individual clients. She only puts forward positions that she knows are appropriate once she has understood what your professional requirements are and gives thought to where you will fit in to the existing team dynamics. She has gotten my requirements spot on and this is a great relief as I was moving out of private practice after 9.5 years. I cannot recommend Carter Clarke enough to anyone!"
Sanam Majid (Candidate)

"Chantal is a very experienced professional. She knows the industry very well, took the time to really understand my search requirements and presented me with relevant candidates within a short turnaround time. I have worked with Chantal on two recent assignments and am very happy with the results - I would definitely use her again."
Director, US Investment Bank (Client)

"Chantal was recommended to me as someone who was a pleasure to deal with and this recommendation proved to be spot on, as the refreshing honesty with which Chantal approached my situation ensured she stood out from her peers. Rather than promise the earth and then not deliver, Chantal was a pleasure to speak to, easily contactable and understanding of my situation. Best of all, her relationship with her clients and her knowledge of their needs resulted in my securing a role for which most recruiters would never have considered me. I would definitely contact her again, should the need arise."
In-House Shipping Counsel (Candidate)

"Chantal knows the right people in the right banks in the City. Rather than just fill any person for a position, she actually listens to what you want and considers positions as they arise on that basis. That is a quality other recruiters seem to lack. Highly recommended."
3yr PQE Lawyer, Investment Bank (Candidate)

"Carter Clarke provided a first class service from start to finish with that all important personal touch. Chantal was always extremely helpful, always available giving me regular updates and really took time to help me make the transition into the London market. Unlike some recruiters, Chantal considered my personal interests and it was not long before I not only had an interview, but had the job offer. I would be delighted to recommend, and have recommended, Carter Clarke to friends and colleagues who are considering the next step in their careers."
Shane Coveney (Candidate)

"I first met Chantal after responding to an advert for an in-house role at a US investment bank, having decided to fly the nest of the Capital Markets department of an international law firm. I was impressed with her depth of knowledge of the market and it wasn't long before she had lined up an interview. Through the several rounds of interviews that followed over a prolonged period of time, Chantal did a very good job of keeping in touch with both me and the prospective employer. When it was suggested that my skill-set may be better suited to the bank's UK arm, Chantal was quick to move to secure the further couple of interviews required. I would not hesitate to recommend Chantal to colleagues looking to make a move in-house with an investment bank."
4yr PQE Vice President, Investment Bank (Candidate)

"Chantal has been invaluable in helping me to transition from a law firm to an investment bank and I could not thank her enough. She really took the time to listen and understand what I wanted from a new job both personally and professionally and only offered positions that would really suit me. I really felt that she was looking after my interests and as though I were her only client. Chantal is highly professional and has a great inside knowledge of the industry. Miles apart from her peers!"
Victoria Gorodnova (Candidate)

"Chantal was great from the outset and it felt like a relationship from the start. We started off with a meeting so that she would understand my goals and objectives and to also find out which jobs would suit my credentials and my personality (a stark contrast to other recruiters who just fired jobs over to me that were clearly not what I had asked for). Chantal remained in regular contact with market updates and provided me with information on new jobs that were of interest before they were listed on the market. I did not once feel pressured to apply for a job that was not of interest to me and I had the sense that Chantal was thinking where I would actually enjoy working in the long term. She managed to find me a job that I was happy to switch over to and I am very glad that I made the move. This is how all recruiters should operate!"
Howard Li (Candidate)

"Throughout my move from an investment bank to a trading house, Chantal has been highly informed, focused and efficient. She has demonstrated first class knowledge of the role, the institutions I was moving from and to, and the market in general. Unlike her peers she has not pestered me with unsuitable roles or wasted my time when there has been nothing specific to report. She has delivered on her deadlines and has been contactable throughout - both in and out of office hours. Chantal will be my first port of call for future placements!"
In-House Shipping and Commodities Counsel (Candidate)

"Chantal placed me in my current job, which is a major improvement over my previous job. She was approachable and helpful at all times, and dealt with me in a very friendly and straightforward way."
