Proud to present these accolades


At Lorus Partners we have built long term relationships with both our clients and candidates. We are very proud to present the following testimonials that we have received.

I have worked with Dylan for almost a decade to source a variety of roles across the finance skillset. He operates with high integrity, appropriately manages expectations, and always finds a fantastic range of candidates. One thing I particularly like is Dylan’s extensive screening process, he never fills the shortlist by default but instead will only share a candidate if he is convinced they could be a good fit. He truly works to ensure the candidate is set up for success and the company benefits as a result.

Nick Honeyman-Brown

I’ve worked with Dylan on interim and permanent roles for a number of years now and he consistently delivers a high-quality shortlist of well-prepared candidates for anything I’ve asked for. Dylan and the team are excellent at quickly identifying the key skills for the role and filtering the candidate selection accordingly. Dylan has also been a great sounding board in helping define and refine the requirement, knowing the market for finance business partnering roles specifically better than anyone else.

Tim Mehta
Group Financial Controller
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc

I have worked with Gordon and Dylan for over fifteen years in various roles across three organisations as both a client and candidate.  The team at Lorus Partners have always been very responsive, sourced great candidates and managed relationships and sensitivities very professionally and fairly. This always culminates in a smooth and efficient recruitment experience.

Sam Horrocks
Deputy CFO

Having delivered a successful assignment through Dylan and Lorus Partners I can only say that my experience of both was excellent. Dylan is someone you can believe and trust who knows his market very well and Lorus were highly efficient and professional. 10 out of 10 for both.

Stephen Crehan
Interim Corporate Finance Professional

I have worked with Dylan and his team in sourcing candidates for both interim and permanent assignments. I have been impressed by the depth of understanding Dylan has of not only our business but also the dynamic and culture of our finance community. This results in an efficient and consultative process providing us with high calibre people. In addition to this Dylan demonstrates an excellent understanding of the marketplace and in doing so is great sounding board providing me with insightful and relevant information.

Luke Milner
CEO – Liberty Global
Energy Transition

Dylan recruited me as Senior Director for a global satellite communication business. The business was undergoing significant growth and change and needed to advance its analytics strategy globally. It was apparent that all parties had been well briefed by Dylan and the logistics of contacts, meetings/interviews were faultless. His assessment of the principal’s needs and culture of the business and management team were very insightful and helpful to the success of my assignment. All in all, it was very professionally done.

Gareth Dumbrell
Senior Director – Insights, Analytics & Reporting

I have previously retained Dylan to find senior permanent staff both here in the UK and overseas and also provide interim solutions at short notice. The business was undergoing significant growth and change and my brief to Dylan has always been very specific. The team at Lorus Consulting demonstrated an excellent understanding of the requirements and are clearly well networked and pro-active within their sector. The process from start to finish is managed professionally, communication is clear, meetings are seamless and the outcome has always been the same with a successful appointment.

Jonathan Rowland
Executive Chairman

I was placed by Dylan at a cryptoasset and payments company as Finance Director and have to say my experience was one that is sometimes rare when finding a new role. The communication was always super efficient and friendly helping to result in my successful hiring. Having been placed by Dylan I certainly would not hesitate to utilise him and the team at Lorus Partners for any recruiting needs in the future.

Richard Stones
Finance Director
Parity Technologies

I have worked with Lorus Partners for a number of years, both as a successfully placed candidate and as a client. I have always found Dylan friendly, collaborative, and effective to work with. The ongoing engagement I have with him ensures an excellent understanding of my recruitment needs and a consistently high standard of candidates being put forward.

Phil Rudman
FP&A Director


Dylan has recruited a number of the roles for me, both temporary and permanent.  His service and communication is excellent.  He only puts forward creditable candidates for the role required, giving sound advice and informed opinions about the process/candidates/market.  All of this results in ensuring the candidate fit is right for both parties.  I can recommend him without hesitation as he will give you a first class service.

Chris Leech
Head of Finance – Rail Systems
Balfour Beatty Rail UK

Dylan recruited me into my role as Delivery Director for Insight Analytics and Reporting at Inmarsat and has subsequently assisted in the recruitment of members of my team. As both a candidate and client I have found Dylan to work efficiently, communication is clear and a good understanding of the brief is always demonstrated. Insightful information on all aspects of the process and the marketplace in general are always provided, culminating in a successful outcome.

Stephen Roberts
Delivery Director for insight Analytics and Reporting

I strongly recommend Dylan who has been doing a great job for our group by recruiting key talents. Dylan displayed the highest standards of professional excellence, and working with him is a real pleasure, as he continuously strives to improve customer satisfaction. Dylan is also very reliable and trustworthy when given an assignment

Eric Gouy
CFO & Legal Affairs
Pierre Fabre Group

We have used Dylan on a couple of roles with specialist requirements. They understood the brief and found us candidates with the right knowledge and experience where other recruiters could not. They are happy to give their opinion and promote a candidate if they think it appropriate which is very helpful. The outcome was filling our position with the right person quickly and efficiently. Thank you to Lorus Partners.

Rajeev Sanwalka
Director EMEA Business Finance

The team at Lorus Partners have recruited a number of both permanent & interim positions overseas, including positions in Norway, Germany, Thailand and Australia. They have always been able to source assignments for me and are also clear when they cannot. They are practical, understanding the requirements and are pro-active in sourcing suitable people for the open positions I have had.

Stephen Ford
Senior Vice President Finance

Accord Healthcare

I have had close dealings with Lorus Partners as both candidate and client and have been impressed with both the quality and consistency of service I have received. This is based on a detailed understanding of the client requirements which went further than my experience with other firms. Going into an initial meeting with the client feeling that I had been really well briefed on top of my own research gave me the best opportunity of landing the assignment. A few months later using Lorus as a client, I knew that candidates coming from them would in turn be better prepared and resulted in being able to make a senior appointment ahead of schedule. They understand what is needed to seal the deal at the end of the selection process and communication was straightforward and effective. I would have no hesitation in working with Lorus again or recommending them to others whether as a candidate or a client.

James Christie
Finance Director
The Mercers’ Company

We asked Dylan and the team at Lorus Partners to recruit for a pair of roles outside their normal experience, and we had quite specific types of background and character in mind for each role. They did a great job. We had a flow of candidates, and together we iterated our learning of the market and what to expect, narrowing down quickly two excellent candidates for final interviews. We filled the roles faster than expected, with exact fits of people who rapidly delivered the results we needed. You can’t ask for more.

Andrew Sangster
Interim Manager, Programme Director
Virgin Media

Gordon and the team at Lorus are the ideal brokers to help bring blue chip clients and high calibre interims together. They are very well connected with the very senior Executives in their client portfolio and therefore their assignments are always fully sponsored, thoroughly researched and involve business critical assignments owned at Board level. Working on interim assignments with Lorus has been a refreshing change from the usual experience.

Allistaire Leighton-Young
Pursuit Leader

I have had the pleasure of working with Gordon for over 3 years. Gordon is totally focused, very driven and expects – and receives – the highest standards from those who work for him. He and his team have built great relationships with the Finance team at Virgin Media, as a result of taking the time to understand our business, listening and delivering. A charismatic guy, whom I’m only too pleased to recommend.
