What our clients say
The Donaldson Trust recently engaged with Eden Scott and Iain Atkinson to appoint an Estates Lead.
Going through a transformation process, this was a critical hire for the organisation as we reposition the organisation moving forward with property playing a key role. Iain met with us, listened to our requirements and presented us with a tailored approach to sourcing, a comprehensive market map of suitable individuals before presenting an excellent shortlist. Whilst going through the permanent appointment, they sourced an interim manager to ensure business continuity within our Facilities function.
We are delighted with how the process was handled and would highly recommend Eden Scott’s approach. Our ability to utilise their extensive network within the Property market has delivered an excellent appointment who will help us deliver the property elements of our new strategy.
