Abi has a totally professional approach and demonstrated a genuine desire to achieve a successful outcome for both her client and myself, as the candidate.  Not only did she ensure a fit in terms of experience and capability, she was also highly focused on matching personalities and the culture of the business.  I’m really looking forward to starting this role, perhaps more so than in any previous position, this in no small part due to the way Abi conducted the process.

Philip Jones – Financial Director – Kanes Foods

Abi found me a great job that matched my skills and experience. Abi was great to work with.  As a recruiter she maintained a highly professional demeanour while being friendly and approachable.  She was able to understand my experience along with my soft skills to find me an opportunity that was a great fit.  Abi was there to help me through the process up to signing the contract.  This was an overseas contract  and she was understanding of all of the intricacies of the role and the contract.  I would highly recommend Abi to help you recruit or to match a candidate with a great role.  Abi, thanks for your help and support!

I worked with Abi as a candidate recently and my experience was excellent. As a candidate you are looking for high integrity, honesty and exceptional communication throughout the process. In my experience this does not happen often enough in recruitment, however Abi excels in this area. Her level of attention to detail and regular communication is of the highest quality and I really appreciated that. Every email, phone call or text was communicated clearly and efficiently, helping all concerned to have a level of trust in her to facilitate the process quite brilliantly. Also, I would add that Abi may only put one or two candidates in front of a potential employer, this shows that Abi has the focus and resilience needed to meet a client brief perfectly in terms of experience, capability and cultural fit. Her straight forward and very detailed approach is welcomed by the candidate, and this approach also builds loyalty and trust for her clients who can be assured of the credentials of the candidate to meet the brief.

Stephen Knight – Commercial Director – WOW Food and Drink

From a candidate perspective, I recommend Abi very highly. I’ve been put forward by Abi on several occasions and, whether successful or not, her communication and professionalism has been second to none. Using her extensive contact network and experience, she is skilled at understanding and then matching client requirements with candidate capabilities which gives a quicker, more effective result for both parties.

Mike Wood – Interim Operations Director – Oasis Foods


I was approached by Abi at ABI BUNT Executive Search Ltd regarding a Marketing Director / CEO role within the cereal and grain marketing sector. Abi has an excellent ability to separate the wheat from the chaff and select the right role for the right candidate; Abi clearly researches the sector in question and recognises the qualities required to fill the vacancies in question. For me, Abi introduced me to a Company Chairman, who shares a similar vision for the company and with whom I could work closely and successfully. Through the pre-interviewing process, Abi walked me through with complete professionalism and good humour. The whole process from beginning to end was professional and seamless. An excellent service provided with utmost professionalism.

Robert Munro – CEO – Fengrain

After years of being approached by recruitment consultants, it’s easy to categorise all recruiters in to the same “box”. However following a blind approach from Abi at Abi Bunt Executive search, it’s clear that not all recruiters are the same.
Abi, from the outset, displayed not only a clear knowledge of the company she was representing, but also a clear understating of the remit and requirements of the role. The professionalism and attitude displayed by Abi at all times were impressive, with the feeling that nothing was too much trouble. The process was efficient, as not once did I have to follow up on a request for information or clarity on any point, while maintaining at all times, a faultless level of confidentiality. It was clear from all conversations that she was working in the best interests of both parties, and would only progress to interview, should the candidate/client fit be correct. (Something that in previous experience has been a challenge with recruiters pushing to get candidates to interviews where it generally feels like more of a scatter gun approach). I think it’s fair to say it’s a considerably more focused approach to recruitment than I have ever experienced before. My intention is to maintain contact with Abi, should I need to resource roles in the future. However for now, I’m eager to get started in the new role.
