International Headhunter & Managing Director
Sandra Hill’s ambition was to own and run her own recruitment company, and for over 25 years she has led and developed the executive search experience for both clients and candidates. She specialises in industrial engineering, which includes Automotive, Aerospace, Oil and Gas, and Power Generation, focusing on key areas such as mechanical and electrical, interiors, rotating equipment, coatings, supplying OEMs, first-tier suppliers, and the service/aftermarket sectors.
Sandra works across multiple geographies and has a deep understanding and appreciation for diversity and inclusion in all forms.
She has a unique ability to build strong relationships with her clients and understand their needs through in-depth questioning to ensure she understands what they expect from this new member of staff or team. She has a track record of successfully placing exceptional talent who not only drive business transformation but also fit well in terms of culture and core values.
“I believe that when conducting a search, it requires getting to know my clients. I focus on learning about their business’ leadership style, core values, company culture, and the type of personality they would like and believe will have a positive impact on their business.
When interviewing candidates, I ask them what they are looking for in terms of challenges, advancement, and the types of people they want to work with. Also, discuss issues on a personal level to ensure that any changes will benefit the entire family. I build a solid and honest partnership while learning about their professional and personal goals.”
Sandra’s experience enables her to assess a candidate’s skills and experience when reviewing their profile and CV, but she is most interested in learning about their values, the working culture they enjoy, the environment they believe their personality will suit, and their aspirations. She believes that knowing this is critical because it enables her to present her clients with the best candidates who will have an innovative and transformative impact on the business while also being a good fit in terms of workplace culture. As a result, 88% of the candidates she has placed are still employed by the companies five years later.
Sandra has received numerous recognition awards including several International Office of the Year awards delivering more global business than colleagues around the world.
Sandra’s support for businesses and candidates is described as “striving daily to deliver successful transformation through the people I introduce to each other.”
