  • The executive services provided by Richard and his team are second to none. Extremely diligent and thorough. A great shortlist provided for an executive role we were recruiting for. Timely communication throughout leading to a quick placement.
  • First class service all round. One of the best executive recruiters and experiences I have ever had, leading to a successful placement of a superb candidate from an exceptional shortlist. Very pleased and will use again without fail
  • I still remember when I was deciding about whether to use one of the big firms or to give Aruba Exec, a firm I had not heard of before, a shot. I could not be happier with my decision to go with Aruba. The founder, Richard, has a great network, and truly cares about finding the perfect fit for both sides. He’s personal, fair, not afraid of a challenge, and listens! Qualities that are sometimes hard to find with one of the big firms. I will continue to use Richard for career advice and executive search for the companies I work with.
  • I was recommended to contact Aruba from an ex-colleague in my network who had worked with Richard, as we had a senior appointment to fill. The service provided was second to none, Richard quickly understood our requirements, challenged what we were looking for and delivered a very strong shortlist where all the candidates were serious prospects. All in all, a successful search campaign with our first choice candidate secured. I will certainly be using Richard and his team again.
  • I would like to thank Richard Crossman, a senior director at Aruba Executive Search, he has provided superb mentoring in both development of my cv and in my approach to the next stage of my career. Further, he is passionate in wanting to help people succeed in their career and is willing to give the time to do this - now that counts.
  • Richard has fantastic industry knowledge and builds great relationships with candidates quickly. He works hard to understand our business and our needs and generates high quality candidates quickly. Having Richard engaged on our recruitment activity has been a real game changer for us.
  • From the first contact Aruba were very well engaged; Richard was available consistently and he understood both my background and my career plan. Richard provided valuable and usable guidance which I am certain improved my presentation and which ensured I could pitch my experience and skill set appropriately.
  • Richard is clearly passionate about the recruitment industry and very professional in his dealings with both clients and candidates. I have used his service for myself as a candidate and a client and on both occasions he has delivered well.
  • If, like me, you believe that clear timely communication is the cornerstone of effective recruitment, then I can strongly recommend the Services of Richard at Aruba.
  • Richard is unusual as a recruiter in that he not only knows his subject matter but actually does as he says, he takes an open and collaborative approach and genuinely engages in a professional and effective manner, easy to deal with an honest broker.
