GANNI, CHIEF RETAIL OFFICER & GENERAL MANAGER OF EUROPE
I have worked with Helen for several years due to her experience, connections, and relationships in the industry. I enjoy her energy and positivity in finding exceptional people and I come to her first when I need support. Her breadth of knowledge of the markets and insight is super helpful and helps me navigate what's happening from a people perspective. Every role she has worked on with me over the years has been seamless and she has really listened, identified, and delivered on what I have been looking for. I have never been disappointed with the calibre she puts forward and she is such a valuable partner for GANNI.
CULT BEAUTY, HEAD OF HUMAN RESOURCES
I have known and worked with the team at Mode for years. Their combined experience within the luxury and retail space means they are one of the best-placed agencies to source the perfect person for the role! With an extensive network and global reach, they consistently deliver high-caliber candidates. Mode truly understands our brand, our values and always finds the best person who will thrive and succeed in their new role!
VIA OUTLETS, HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTOR
Partnering with Mode Search has been a seamless process with all of the roles that I have asked for support with. Helen has provided a true partnership approach to the search at every step of the process. Helen has a tremendous can-do attitude and positive style which greatly helps in any search process, and despite the complexity of the search and the challenge we ask of her, she is very keen to go for it and delivers every time! Mode Search has successfully supported VIA Outlets with roles such as Head of Brand Marketing, Interim HR Director, and HR Business Partner. I would highly recommend working with Helen and the Mode Search team for a European search.
TOM DIXON STUDIO, GLOBAL HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTOR
Mode Search has helped secure two incredibly successful senior hires at Tom Dixon Studio including a Chief Digital Officer & Head of Retail. They truly understand our business and the candidate profiles we look for. I have found the team to always be professional, they can provide quality candidates and work at pace when required. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with Mode Search – they have been a pleasure to recruit with.
TIFFANY & CO, VICE PRESIDENT HUMAN RESOURCES EMEA
Mode Search is the first agency I would approach for senior and executive vacancies across my region. It’s rare to find an agency that is as open and honest in their communication and truly understands our requirements. I always feel confident in their ability to deliver outstanding talent, even when faced with a challenging brief. Their network is second to none and their candidate reach is global. Incredibly professional and easy to work with; Mode Search are a strong external recruitment partner and a valuable extension of our own brand for challenging briefs.

GEOFFREY O WILLIAMS
GLOBAL HEAD OF DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION, DR MARTENS, LONDON
I worked with Helen as I looked to take my Culture, Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion leadership expertise to a different sector. Helen brought the organisation she connected me with to life and enabled me to learn about the culture before I even spoke to the team. I was able to see where my values aligned with the business objectives and goals. Helen kept me up to date with the process, and I felt in some instances, made things move along at a steady pace. Helen's style is one of listening to you, the candidate, and the client and bringing everyone into a space to understand what is needed beyond what was written in the job spec, which for me was very refreshing and beneficial. I am thankful for her guidance in connecting me to Dr. Martens to be their new Global Head of DE&I.
HEAD OF CRM, CULT BEAUTY, LONDON
Stacey helped to place me Cult Beauty and was a pleasure to work with. She was able to give me expert guidance throughout the interview process and was professional and always available if I needed her. As a result, I was successful in acquiring the position and am very thankful to her and Mode for their support.
ECOMMERCE MANAGER US, GANNI, NEW YORK HQ
Right from the start, my experience working with Helen was seamless! Throughout the process she constantly stayed in touch, providing me with daily updates and made me feel at ease with her personal approach. She was well informed about the company she was recruiting for, and she ensured it was the right company fit for me as a candidate. It’s clear to see she takes the time to understand both parties. Again super helpful, would highly recommend!
OLIVIER VAN VEEN
GLOBAL BRAND MARKETING DIRECTOR VIA OUTLETS AMSTERDAM HQ
I worked with Helen in regards to my placement with VIA Outlets, as Brand Marketing Director. From the initial phone call till signing the contract, I have experienced the entire process as professional, but also very personal. Helen has been very quick and accurate when it came to questions or open ends from my side during the interviews. Switching jobs in times of COVID is not the easiest decision to which I needed some time to reflect and think things over. Over the course of a few months, I had many conversations with Helen in which she really helped me to get things straight. I really felt Helen wanted the best for me, which is not always that common with Headhunters. Really loved working with Helen!
GLOBAL MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, AGENT PROVOCATEUR, LONDON
Stacey is a breath of fresh air! She’s an engaged, supportive, smart, competent recruiter who takes a client-first approach and really spends time with you as the candidate doing as much due diligence as she can so you breeze through the meetings and interviews she sets up for you. I recommend her highly and hope to work with her again in the future.
GLOBAL SALES & EDUCATION DIRECTOR, ZELENS SKINCARE, LONDON
Helen has an extremely professional approach to her work and went over and above to support me in finding the right opportunity. From a candidate perspective, Helen was approachable, available, and communicative throughout the whole process. Helen is very passionate about what she does and always has the candidate's and business's best interest at heart. I love that Helen truly matches the right people to the right roles and businesses and offers support to both parties throughout. I would highly recommend Helen to both candidates looking for their next big move as well as businesses that need the help of a well-connected expert to bring talent to their company. Thank you again, Helen!
