Testimonials

What differentiates One Search is their exclusive dedication to infrastructure and real assets.  They have really gotten to know the key players in the industry, which in turns makes them the first to know about new opportunities, sometimes even before a search goes live.

I worked with One Search over a three to four month period and found them to be highly knowledgeable around funds in the sector and the broader market.  Furthermore, they took the time to ascertain which roles and funds best suited me and therefore presented only relevant targeted roles. Not the submit them for anything approach you get with some search firms.

My experience as a candidate with Dan McCarthy and his team was overwhelmingly positive.  They are focused (sending only relevant positions that match the experience and skills of candidates with the needs of employers) well connected and respected (with an extensive network within the infrastructure finance universe) and attentive (taking the time to brief and prepare you all the way along the recruitment process). I would not hesitate to recommend One Search to anyone looking for current or future opportunities.

Their strong knowledge of the infrastructure finance space allows them to match the right candidate with the relevant position.  I was supported through a lengthy recruitment process, helped with the interview preparation and selling my profile to the fund at the same time.  It was a pleasure working with One Search and will definitely recommend them to my colleagues.

Talent management is one of our top priorities, starting from finding the right talents.  We appointed One Search at a time we needed to broaden the team skill sets to take advantage new opportunities.  Their extensive industry knowledge allowed them to swiftly assess our requirements and to run an efficient search, from vetting candidates to closing the deal.   We were delighted by the calibre of the individuals we were introduced to and very pleased by the outcome of their work, resulting in the successful hire of two high quality investment professionals within the space of six months.

Dan and his team understand the business like you do, their insights on the strategic challenges and opportunities ahead come across as a market insider.  This is not another call from a firm placing equity traders in the morning and compliance officers in the afternoon, they truly have a singular franchise and grip on the infrastructure space.

What I valued the most is his professionalism and commitment during the whole process; after securing the job Simon was there to give me the best strategic advice on how to manage the relationships with my previous and new employers. I will always recommend candidates interested in the Project Finance/Infrastructure Finance/PEs to work with Simon.

MetLife has used One Search to build out its European Infrastructure debt investment team since 2014.  Over this period One Search has taken the time to get to know the personality of the house and the individuals in the team and combines this knowledge with their access to a wide pool of market candidates to identify and recommend various potential candidates, going above and beyond what we would traditionally expect from an external recruiter.

We retained the team at One Search to hire a CEO to lead our fund. The team was extremely accommodating and professional, and clearly understood the complex landscape of the Infrastructure & Energy space, as well as the specific geographic markets that we cover. We were presented with a selection of superb candidates, all of which were well-known leaders across the equity investment space within our target sub-sectors, from around the world. I would not hesitate in recommending One Search again, as there is no doubt that within the Infrastructure & Energy space their network and work ethic is unparalleled.

I am very pleased with the quality of the three hires I’ve made through One Search. It is patently clear after the fact that they are quite talented and motivated professionals and fit in perfectly with my requirements. But what is equally pleasing is that I get the impression that quite a few of the candidates that were presented were of similar quality. I feel that I’ve got the best people for my requirements and I’m certain I’ll be returning to the pot when the time comes again.

Tim Floyd

Head of European Infrastructure Debt
Westbourne Capital Partners

We have experience in working with a number of recruiters, but none of the others comes close to the quality of One Search, whose team not only has exceptional knowledge of the market, but also a highly professional and efficient style. When launching a recruitment process, we consistently find that the One Search team takes time to understand our exact requirements and then proposes a highly targeted selection of suitable candidates. This is clearly much more satisfactory than the indiscriminate “CV bombing” that we regularly get from other firms. As a result, our “hit rate” with One Search is much higher than with any other firm.

Jeremy Bayfield

Head of European Specialised Finance
Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank

I’ve used One Search (Dan and Franky) on a few assignments over the past 4 years. The team has delivered a very professional service from quickly grasping our recruitment requirements to matching these with strong high calibre candidates. On each occasion this has resulted in excellent hires for Royal Bank of Canada where the individuals have gone on to successfully develop their careers here. Thank you One Search.

I have used One Search, as a hiring manager at more than one institution; they have consistently impressed with the calibre of candidate that they have put forward and have remained incredibly responsive and professional. One Search listen to the needs of their client and continually strive to provide candidates who can seamlessly fit into business needs. On the candidate side, One Search builds relationships with candidates and provides good advice as they progress through their careers, which builds a strong bank of quality candidates. By taking the same approach to candidate selection across the levels – we get the right candidates, at the right levels for our needs. One Search’s level of care and commitment is second to none and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to any prospective client.

My experience with One Search was excellent.  The Consultants met up with me in person and took the time to really understand my past experience, what skills I could offer a potential employer, and what type of role I was looking for.  I was provided with valuable advice in order to help me prepare for the recruitment process, and given detailed feedback following each stage of the process.  After I successfully received an offer of employment, one of the Consultants even personally delivered the contract to me, using up his own time on a weekend.  This high level of commitment sets One Search apart from other recruitment firms.

Dan McCarthy is a rarity in his profession. He’s committed, means what he says and follows through in a confident, professional and charming manner. He believes in finding the right people for the right job, no compromises.

I received a call from him nearly a year ago, out of the blue, and I haven’t looked back. I am now in a new job facing new and interesting challenges within a great company. If it wasn’t for Dan I’d still be in my comfort zone and wouldn’t be progressing in my career as quickly.

I have worked with Dan McCarthy and One Search on a number of occasions, both in recruiting new positions, and as a candidate myself. I have found Dan to be a pleasure to work with and, whichever side of the recruiting process I’ve been on, he has taken the time to understand what I am after from either a new role or recruit. As candidate, I received lots of useful advice and encouragement, and as a recruiter, I have received a strong range of candidates accompanied with honest feedback and appraisals, all of which has helped make the process as streamlined as possible.

One Search skilfully conducted my screening, gaining a sense of my technical and interpersonal skills.

Whilst I’ve dealt with recruitment agencies before, this was my first time actually finding a job through one and I consider myself very lucky to have come across Dan and Franky. First, their knowledge of the project / infrastructure finance market is excellent. Then their ability to listen to and quickly understand who you are and what you are looking to achieve means that they are really able to provide personalised and valuable advice. Their continued involvement throughout the recruitment process allows you to focus entirely on preparing and doing well during the interviews as well as making sure that what you are looking at is the right opportunity. To find this level of support and expertise was particularly important in my case coming from overseas.

Finding a new job is a rather frustrating and tiresome exercise per definition. Most of the recruiting agencies come and go. They get in touch to initiate and then disappear, never to be heard from again. They make promises to keep you “on the radar”. They brief you for interviews for as short as physically possible, preferably via email. They send you surprisingly unrelated job descriptions…we all know it…And then there is One Search. More precisely, Dan McCarthy. Both one of the few of their kinds that do their jobs, remember what you tell them, stick to what they promise, do not spam and more importantly, keep in touch throughout the process, regardless of prior to/during/after interviews. Thank you.

I had the chance to work with One Search while I was looking for opportunities to relocate to London.  The Consultant provided me with detailed information on the recruitment landscape and took the time to understand and make a fair assessment of my past experiences and skills.  Although my profile is somewhat atypical, he presented me only with opportunities that were in line with my career choice resulting in 100% success rate.  The communication was excellent even when I was not physically present in London, and the Consultant was very involved and helped me prepare at every stage of the process. It was a pleasure working with the One Search team and I greatly appreciate their advice and guidance to successfully jump-start my career.

I met Dan McCarthy at a networking event where I expressed my frustration with the unwillingness of recruiters in London to understand candidates’ skill sets and job criteria. At the time I was receiving numerous emails from various recruitment agencies which treated candidates as commodities. Dan said “We are different”. He was right. Both Dan and Franky have high job integrity, ability and willingness to listen. It was an absolute pleasure to work with both of them and would highly recommend One Search to anyone who appreciates a personal approach. Thank you, One Search.

John-Laing

Alex Yew

Head of Project Finance
John Laing Plc

My interactions with Angus Melville began in August 2014. I have personally dealt with Head Hunters previously, but for the very first time appreciated a Head Hunter from a truly international organisation. His description of the position at the time still resonates with me today, 6 months into my successful placement. Absolute causality between what he described and the actual job. Angus’s professionalism and method of preparation for his candidates is second to none. His insight into the organisation and its culture assisted me greatly in positioning myself during the interview process. Ultimately the final sell came from myself, but Angus tangible and intangible support never went unnoticed.

I would certainly recommend Angus and I certainly do intend using them as I grow my team into Sub Saharan Africa.

Unlike many rival firms, One Search spent the time to establish an understanding of the role I was looking for, and sought out that and that only. The entire team at One Search were a pleasure to deal with from the start to the finish of the process, and when it came to decision time they were able to offer advice and guidance that was as close to being impartial as possible! For sector knowledge and personable interaction, One Search are seemingly unmatched.

I am thankful for the fact that Dan made the whole process very easy for me by communicating frequently with me for updates, sharing tips for my interviews, being honest in his feedback and negotiating with both companies for my benefit.

She has been honest about the process and the prospects, something that is very important when it comes to key decisions in a career. I can recommend Franky as being supportive and professional.

I am very grateful for Franky’s work. She had faith that I could land a good job despite my non-conventional background and she put me forward for an amazing position in a leading investment bank. I would never be in the position I am now if she hadn’t been there.

Franky has been extremely professional and at the same time friendly in her approach. She was always honest, transparent and very well rounded in her discussions and advice. She was always available to answer questions and address any considerations, always reflecting my personal preferences, concerns and circumstances. I was very glad to have Franky on my side during my interview process.

Dan McCarthy has placed me in two positions in the last 3.5 years. Unlike other recruitment consultants One Search did not bombard me with a large number of “potential” positions but only contacted me about the roles that ticked all the boxes we pre-agreed. On my most recent move Dan’s colleague Franky Gordon-Saker was instrumental in arranging a smooth and quick transition and I found everyone else who I dealt with at One Search to be extremely personable and supportive. As a candidate I truly felt they knew exactly what role suited me best at every stage of my career and put me forward only for the most relevant roles at the appropriate time.

Franky was key to my success in securing a new position. Franky is friendly and professional and knows what needs to be done. Franky was always available, supportive and responsive and most importantly proactive during the whole process, which was key in securing quickly a new position. I would highly recommend Franky to anyone looking for a job in the infrastructure/energy finance field and generally speaking I would highly recommend One Search to anyone looking for jobs or to firms looking to hire.

When hiring for a role we simultaneously use a number of recruitment consultancies. What sets One-Search apart from the others is the sheer quantity of quality candidates they put us in touch with. As such it is not surprising that we have recruited a number of candidates from One-Search over the past few years.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Greg. He helped me to secure my position with Hudson Advisors in a remarkably professional way. Throughout the whole process he provided great advice and showed real dedication even out of standard office hours.
