Having worked with Rowan Finance on several occasions, I find the service first class. Their ability to interpret our needs, find quality candidates and fill the vacancy in a timely manner, is second to none.
Sally Howard, Head of HR, A4e
Rowan’s ability to support SME business leaders in designing a performance management framework and setting objectives as part of the induction process for new hires is an extremely useful added value service.
Gary Palmer, HR Director, Waterfall Services Ltd
Rowan’s network in the North West business community is, in my experience, outstanding and would be of benefit to anyone looking for in-depth third party referencing as part of a recruitment process.

Summayya and John wanted me to pass on their positive feedback about Rowan and Julie. They have found the process so slick and professional and Summayya can not believe the accuracy with which Julie interpreted the brief and subsequently relayed key information to candidates to ultimately produce such a high quality shortlist. To then subsequently just interview 2 candidates is unheard of for Summayya and she and John were torn as both candidates were such a great fit.
It has been a pleasure to work with Julie on this assignment and a really positive experience for Castlefield. One which they would definitely consider if the opportunity arose again.
Matthew Hirst, Chief Executive Officer, Utiligroup
“We choose Rowan Partners to run a COO assignment that was critically important for us to achieve our company growth ambitions and were impressed with both their understanding of the requirement and their commitment to succeed.
My company is PE backed, and Rowan’s track record of successful appointments in such companies gave me an added level of confidence in what they could do.
We spent a lot of time together up front to ensure that the brief suited our needs and Rowan delivered this successfully.
We had a high quality shortlist to choose from and were able to appoint a candidate who was precisely in line with our requirements and the brief.
I am happy to recommend Rowan Partners and will use their services when I next have a need to strengthen my leadership team.”
Richard Young, Director, BVCA
