Executive Search

I have had the pleasure of working with both Sarah and Jane over a number of years covering a variety of different executive recruitment assignments both in the UK & overseas . During this time they have always managed to deliver a pipeline of high quality candidates, for sometimes very challenging roles. Both have proved to be very good at interpreting and finding exactly what we were looking for and have never failed to delight.

Philip Herbert, VP Human Resources Sharp Electronics (Europe) Ltd

Jane & Sarah have worked very closely and successfully with Enotria for over 5 years. I personally joined the business 15 months ago and have been thoroughly impressed by the way in which we have partnered together. In a niche market, being able to rely on professionals who have an in-depth understanding of the business and its culture is invaluable.

Together we have worked on high profile retained assignments at mid and senior level appointments. They have also successfully placed key Directors within our business who continue to be part of the Enotria leadership team.

Gemma Bolton, Director of HR - Enotria&Coe

I had the pleasure of working with a team led by Sarah Hopkins... to deliver a resource talent pipeline so that we were spoilt for choice,  reduce the time to recruit and up-skill the existing in house resource capability... we had a wealth of talent to choose from and had reduced the time to recruit by over 50% for key roles as well as enabling Group Food to achieve a number of its strategic deliverables.

Sarah's style is incredibly results focused, candid as well as being very collegiate. Sarah quickly gained my confidence and the confidence of our recruiting Directors.

Florence Hayden, International HRD

I worked with Jane on a number of Executive appointments at Kerry Foods. During our time working together I always found her highly professional and a pleasure to work with. Jane is highly skilled at sourcing candidates and persuading them to consider alternative opportunities. All candidates spoke of their positive experience in the recruitment process. As a client Jane was very patient during sometimes lengthy or changing processes, providing creative solutions where possible. She was always flexible, committed to a good outcome and had an excellent grasp of the brief.

Career Transitioning Services

Jane provided me with excellent career advice which I needed as a result of being made redundant and was unsure of the best way forward to suit my circumstances. I found her an excellent sounding board with a wealth of relevant knowledge which aided me considerably. She also helped significantly enhance my CV to the extent that even I was impressed with myself! The process at arriving at the finished article was also very helpful in determining my future career strategy.

Andy Harper, Finance Director - Pitney Bowes Management Services, International

I received highly professional support with shaping a professional CV and writing my first ever personal statement, which resulted in interviews for senior roles with several high profile organisations.

Sally Jenkinson, Director of Children's Services

Very professional service from Sarah and Jane at HopkinsLongworth. The interim assignment happened very quickly, from being advertised on Thursday, interviewed on Friday, to starting on Monday. Throughout this time HopkinsLongworth kept me fully updated with progress. The contact and support has been ongoing since starting the role. I would have no hesitation in using them as both a recruiter and a job seeker.

David Bloor, CFO, Atlantic Zone, EPC

I would like to sincerely thank you for your assistance in helping me secure the position recently.  I have spent a long time in my current organisation and wasn't really looking for a new role when you approached me.

Throughout my career I have engaged with a range of executive search companies as a client and I believe that I have a good understanding of 'what good looks like' from a candidate's perspective and you have over delivered on this.

The best compliment that I can pay you is this: you do exactly what you say you will do, when you say you would do it.  I really appreciate your advice, warmth, integrity and professionalism.  I felt comfortable being able to contact you at any time of day such is your focus on delivering a great experience for the candidate.

Kevin Davies, Head of Resourcing


My sessions with Sarah were very productive and thought provoking. Through her perceptive questioning, she quickly understands the key issues in hand. With her coaching and encouragement Sarah helped me to implement positive change to my workstyle in order to develop and demonstrate leadership opportunities and responsibilities. I have no doubt this will be of considerable assistance in my future career progression.

MD of leading Property Services Business

Thank you Sarah for our wonderful coaching sessions. I have learned so much about myself and what I can achieve and my confidence has definitely grown. The coaching you gave me will take me into the next phase with confidence. I now think of new ways of working and what I can do to improve my performance in the team and really support them – looking forward to 2019.
