Maria Ryan, MD & Portfolio Manager- European Secured Lending at Katch Investment Group
'I was thoroughly impressed with the recruitment expertise demonstrated by Urvashi and Trident Recruitment throughout our recent hiring process. Urvashi took the lead, displaying remarkable clarity and discernment right from our first consultation call. She delved into the specifics of our open position and ideal candidate with acute attention that reflected Trident's consultative approach.
As the process progressed, Urvashi leveraged Trident's resources and networks to source exceptionally qualified candidates that perfectly matched our brief and also candidates she thought could bring value, from a different perspective, which led to us creating a new position as a result and hiring two candidates through Trident! She gathered valuable insights during assessments that enabled us to make an optimal hiring decision.
During a brief period of Urvashi’s absence, Trident’s robust internal processes ensured consistency and communication excellence and we were well looked after by Dominic. We benefited tremendously from their wealth of recruiting knowledge and never felt any gaps in account management.
Together, Urvashi and the Trident Recruitment team produced a standout recruiting experience defined by selectivity of candidates and valuable partnership in achieving our ideal hiring outcome.
I highly recommend connecting with Urvashi and Trident's talented consultants for seamless, insightful recruiting success. Their account management model enables the firm to deliver impressive, consistent results no matter which expert leads your search. We could not be more satisfied with our experience partnering with Urvashi and Trident.'

For the first time in a long time, I felt confident and hopeful about my prospects. More importantly, Trident helped prepare me for interviews, so I knew exactly what to expect.

However, we changed the job specification during the process which contributed significantly to the delays. The patience and tenacity of Dominic and the Trident team were key to an eventual successful conclusion to the search process. Dominic took the time to really understand our business and the type of candidate who would best fit. He persevered with us as went through the long selection process, being able to access a deep pool of potential candidates. I really valued his comments on candidates, which were very insightful.

It was during lockdown, but he still managed to present a number of qualified candidates and successfully placed a candidate with us in just a few weeks. We also work with Dominic during our annual benchmarking exercise and he has always provided us with helpful market insight that our Partners find very informative and useful.'
