Emma Robinson is the founder and Managing Director of Red Diamond Executive Headhunters. Emma has 19 years recruitment experience, the past 11 years at executive level. Emma is degree educated and began her recruitment career at Hays PLC on the graduate trainee programme rapidly climbing the ladder, 8 years in obtaining a Director level role for Hays International.
With a passion for Senior Level hiring Emma spotted a gap in the international market for a strategic recruitment partner. Both traditional Head Hunters and recruiters seem to forget the emotional, cultural and physical aspects of changing jobs. An imbalanced focus on skills and not on the many other aspects involved in executing a successful hire.
Today Emma leads the UK business and is on a journey to grow the company. Emma is passionate about people and is never more at home than when she is hands on with Red Diamond’s clients. Emma is on a mission to deliver outstanding results while also developing and nurturing her team.
Outside work Emma is an ambassador and supporter of the Sick Children’s Trust Charity and an active participant in the West Yorkshire business community. When Emma is not working she is busy with her young family.
I have used Simon at Red Diamond for a few specialist roles where we felt we needed his dedicated approach to find the right professionals. I was very pleased with how the campaigns were conducted with Simon consulting with me every step of the way in an efficient and timely manner. All the professionals he provided were relevant and his thorough work showed with the quality of the short list. Some key members of my team have been recruited through Simon. I would use Simon again and I would recommend Red Diamond.
Simon is a dedicated and hard-working Executive Search professional. He works systematically and knows how to get the job done quickly and effectively. He always exhibited superior communication skills both written and oral and was always on hand to consult and advise. Simon made things clear and I would recommend.
I have been working with Simon for sometime now. I have found Simon to be commercially astute, pragmatic and will always delivers against what he says. He is also trusted confidant and coupled with a high degree of integrity, the bespoke service he provides is professionally delivered. Many a time using the words of trust and confidence cannot be underestimated in using executive search/headhunters. Simon displays these characteristics and it is for these reasons along with high morals/values, I for one will be working with Simon. Keep up the great work.
An absolute pleasure to have worked with Emma. An extremely professional and supportive process which is entirely down to Emma’s thorough approach – a great experience from my perspective.
Carol approached me for a role which she has clearly researched in depth. She understood the market and the technical requirements clearly. Her negotiation drove the successful landing of this role for me. Her diligence, friendly and honest approach is very refreshing when compared to her peers where in many cases try to promise the moon on a stick. Carol kept me informed throughout which has made this a pleasurable process rather than a stressful one. I cannot recommend Carol enough, 5 out off 5 stars
I was knocked out by the professionalism, attention to detail and extensive knowledge that was more than evident throughout my inter action with Carol. She epitomises the fundamental difference between a leading head hunter and a traditional recruiter. I was clearly signposted every step of the way and the whole process is geared to act in the best interests of both the candidate and the employer. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Carol and Red Diamond Executive Head Hunters.
It was indeed a real pleasure to work with Simon who facilitated my placement to my last role at a prestigious organisation. He is an absolute professional service provider who has the vision and the calibre to understand your needs and put you at the right place which proves to benefit both the ends. Simon is a delight to work with and I am glad and i strongly recommend to all those out there looking at exploring their bright future…..
Emma is an amazingly talented individual, who has a thorough knowledge of the industry and customers needs, allowing her to match people with positions well. A fantastic communicator, clarity throughout all elements of discussions, this really felt like a friendship as well as a professional relationship. I would absolutely recommend Emma as an individual to work with on your staffing needs. Efficient and tenacious, she definitely understands the brief and how best to ful-fill it. Thank you Emma.
Carol was incredibly helpful and supportive during my recruitment process. She listened to exactly what I was looking for, didn’t just send any old job over for me to apply for, which is what many recruiters do! She is really friendly and communicative which made the recruitment process really smooth! I couldn’t praise her enough – she is absolutely fabulous and the best recruiter I have worked with and will always keep in mind for any future recruitment needs!
An outstanding representation of what an executive level headhunter should be. Clear professional communication, accurate information and all with a personal touch.
I have known and worked with Emma on a number of recruitment assignments over the past years. Recently I worked with Emma on an assignment for a senior level executive at Emaar Industries and Investments.She managed the entire process efficiently and effectively, enabling us to fill a position in which we had previously struggled to identify suitable candidates on the placement. She is transparent about what she can do, how long things take, and what the process will entail. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Emma you have been very quick and professional at full filling Gardner recruitment requirements. Thanks for all your support.
Simon is not your average cold calling headhunter, he is very professional, methodical and takes his time to find what’s right for his clients. I recommend Simon for his honesty, knowledge and dedication.
Absolute breath of fresh air in recruitment. Highly skilled, diligent, thorough and person-centred on behalf of her clients and candidates. Really prepares each candidate for each stage of the recruitment process and can never do enough for you. Highly recommended.
