Sarah is an absolute joy to work with – a great communicator who goes above and beyond to ensure that the result is a strong cultural fit that will stick. So easy to work with, and always a pleasure.
CEO, Sophie Allport
Sarah was a breath of fresh air during the recruitment process. She managed both sides professionally and was really easy to speak with and work with throughout the whole process.
I’ve worked with Sarah on a number of hires and have been really impressed with the range and appropriateness of the candidates she has provided. However the real ability Sarah brings is her skill in finding the right cultural match for your organisation. Sarah has a real talent for this which really sets her apart.
Chairman, Lucy & Yak
Sarah did an outstanding job when asked to find a strong candidate for an open position in our management team. She worked at pace and delivered strong candidates to a tight timeline. She works hard to ensure she understands the requirement and finds candidates who are technically capable but also fit the culture of the team. When you hire Sarah you get her time and expertise. She communicates effectively and always has a positive attitude. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a strong partner when looking for a candidate for your business.
CEO, TM Lewin
Sarah is an excellent head hunter with extensive networks and a solid reputation in the retail industry. She takes time to listen and fully understand the brief, the business needs and also the cultural fit of the person required, and most importantly, she delivers. She works to rigorous time frames without compromising on the quality and depth of a search. And in a busy working week, she makes herself available to her clients at all hours. A true expert in her field and a real pleasure to work with. I would be very happy to recommend Sarah to any prospective clients.

Sarah has a great understanding of the retail sector and is extremely well connected. She listens well to understand the requirements of her clients and is in turn able to present a very targeted and successful shortlist that match the company well, not only from a skills perspective, but also culturally. She also builds strong relationships with candidates to ensure that the role she is approaching them for is going to offer a great next step from a career point of view. She truly cares about her clients and candidates and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
CEO/NED, Lulu Guinness
I had the pleasure of Sarah placing me in a Finance Director role. During the process, Sarah kept in constant communication and was very supportive throughout.
Finance Director, Links of London
Sarah is an expert in her field and lives up to her reputation. She is extremely well connected and has built an extensive network which enables her to be very targeted in her approach. When working with Sarah, she takes time to get to know the client and really understand the brief and then acts quickly to produce a very comprehensive and meaningful shortlist . She has an in-depth knowledge of all the candidates she presents, which means you get quality rather than quantity. Sarah delivers to timescales and keeps the client up to date on progress without the need to chase. A true professional, who I would have no hesitation in recommending.
HR Director, TM Lewin
I have had experience of many executive search companies throughout my career and I have to say that working with Sarah at Keller Monroe was extremely good. Having now joined Links of London as a result of Sarah’s initial contact and the subsequent recruitment process, I am aware of how Keller Monroe is regarded within Links and Sarah has achieved that very difficult balance of supporting and representing both parties entirely fairly and making both feel very good about the process.
Global Brand & Marketing Director, MONDOTTICA
Sarah is always a pleasure to work with and works hard to build an understanding of both the requirements of the role and the needs of the candidates. She is an excellent and open communicator who builds really strong relationships and genuinely cares that the role and the candidate are a great match. I have no hesitation in recommending her and will definitely work with her again in the future.
Digital Director, Fenwicks
Sarah is one of those rare breeds of recruitment consultants… She treats her candidates as human beings and not just as a number! As such she builds very strong relationships with them and gets a really good feel for their motivations, their skill set and their cultural fit with the potential employer. She also has the ability to quickly grasp the strategic issues facing her client’s business, and she is also confident enough in her own knowledge of the market and of the roles that she’s recruiting for to challenge her client when she feels the brief might not be entirely appropriate or relevant.
Sarah’s a well respected and diligent researcher dedicated to ensure the best candidate and the best fit for our company are placed, forming a strong long term profitable partnership between candidate and company.
Senior Vice President, LOEWE, LVMH group
Sarah was a pleasure to work with. She quickly established an understanding of the requirements of the role and edited the candidates accordingly. As a result, we quickly found the perfect candidate! I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Ecommerce Director, Cath Kidston
I have used Keller Monroe on numerous occasions to successfully recruit staff. They screen candidates well and remove the need for a lot of needless leg work. Their approach has always been very proactive and extremely thorough. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Sarah placed me in my role at Finisterre, she was very helpful and proactive during the whole process and ensured I had as much information on the process as possible. It was perfect timing to receive the original call from Sarah and an excellent outcome to work for a brand with such purpose and opportunity.
Head of Ecommerce, Finisterre
From Sarah’s initial contact, and throughout the recruitment process, I have found her to be incredibly honest, encouraging, open and knowledgeable. I have had experience of executive search companies in the past and Sarah made the whole process a lot less stressful. She took the time to get to know me, not only career-wise, but also personally, to ensure I was a good fit for the position and the company. Sarah kept me informed throughout the recruitment process in a timely manner and also ensured I had all the necessary information needed throughout. I have now joined Links of London and have no hesitation in recommending her and Keller Monroe. Sarah is highly regarded by Links of London and her fair representation of both parties meant a positive outcome for me and the company.
Global Head of Wholesale & Partnerships, Links of London
L.K.Bennett have used Keller Monroe on numerous occasions to successfully recruit staff. They are always extremely professional and diligent in their approach towards understanding what we are looking for in a candidate. This combined with their excellent knowledge of the market results in a shortlist of candidates that pinpoints the type of person we are looking for.
Ecommerce Director, L.K.Bennett
I have worked with Keller Monroe over the last 3 years and they have worked closely with us regarding the placement of a number of key roles. They have always been responsive to our needs, working at pace to shortlist good quality candidates. I will be continuing to work with Keller Monroe.
I have worked with Keller Monroe on a number of occasions when we have required a more proactive headhunt approach to reach passive candidates in the marketplace. Keller Monroe take the time to really understand what our requirements are and with their industry knowledge and thorough screening process around skill set and culture they are able to present candidates that suit our needs precisely. They also work to structured timescales which are agreed in advance and these allow us to manage our internal process accordingly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Keller Monroe to clients looking for quality candidates and I look forward to working with them again.
