Client Testimonials

Killian and his team at PJS supported Credit Suisse Private Banking during a period of growth and restructuring. Through careful understanding of the needs of our business, he was able to present candidates who would be an ideal fit in a team of highly skilled professionals across all disciplines. Killian could be relied upon to tackle the toughest of hiring challenges and always operated with discretion and professionalism which meant the best candidates, often those not looking for new opportunities, were willing to work with him. As Head of HR, I was confident that he would represent myself and the business appropriately, and he became a valued partner to us in the seven years we worked together. During this time he undertook a number of strategic resourcing projects on retained headhunting assignments.

Compared to other executive search consultancies, I am very impressed with the help I was given by PJS to secure my new position. I found at all times that the service was professional, efficient and well informed. I felt that not only did they understand my requirements, but also my goals and aims. I was given a comprehensive briefing and they handled the logistics of a complex interview schedule, so that at all times I felt that my best interests were being attended to. I would recommend Killian and his team in an instant.

Killian Glendon FIRP

Killian started his recruitment journey in London, sourcing IT professionals for major blue chip clients with a focus on network personnel and the development of new business opportunities.  After being headhunted himself from within the telecoms sector, he went on to found his own highly successful consultancy in Ireland, working exclusively with a select set of clients based in the Austrian, German, Dutch and Swiss markets.

Following the identification of a gap in the Spanish market, within two years Killian had established the first multi-disciplined recruitment consultancy on the Costa del Sol.  Wemploy quickly became the most successful agency in Gibraltar and southern Spain, and it seemed a natural progression then to open a bespoke business concentrating on the retained market within the financial sector.  And so Veritas Executive Search was born, servicing an elite client base across Europe seeking to source the best senior individuals within Banking, Insurance, FS and Risk.

With a bold move to Luxembourg in 2016, the newly-branded business is now the only bespoke FS executive search agency in the Grand Region.  With a hand-picked team of specialists led by a passionate and motivational leader, Pure Jobsearch offers a tailor-made solution for all your professional FS recruiting requirements.
