Showing testimonials for Giles Hampson
“Having first met Giles around the time I was setting up my paediatric pharma company in 2011, and subsequently keeping in touch throughout the growth of the business to our first commercial launch in 2017, it was a straightforward decision to ask Giles and the team at RMG to support us in finding our UK commercial lead, a strategically important addition to the team.
Giles and the team at RMG possess excellent knowledge of the pharma commercial sector and took time to learn about our specific niche in paediatrics, resulting in a highly bespoke service, with a well-defined candidate profile shaped by Giles’s detail driven, highly-professional style.
The candidate shortlist was impressive, and it became immediately clear when we started interviewing the candidates that Giles had positioned our company and the job opportunity very well. We’ve appointed our UK lead and I’m looking forward to working further with Giles and RMG as we continue to build our team across Europe.”
Dr Simon Bryson, Chief Executive Officer - Proveca
“I was approached by Giles from RMG regarding a Head of Quality role, which I was ultimately offered and accepted.
From the initial approach via telephone and subsequent email correspondence through to the face to face meeting, which was organised at a location near to me, I found RMG to be an excellent company to work with.
Throughout the process I found the team at RMG to be very easy to contact, having a very friendly and helpful approach whilst showing a high degree of integrity and professionalism.
From my experience, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend RMG to anyone who required specialist headhunting services. ”
Mark Hinton, Placed Candidate - Head of Quality at Brunel Healthcare
“Following a recommendation, I contacted Giles at RMG to discuss my situation and get some advice.
RMG took the time to understand my experience, competencies and objectives. They leveraged their broad industry contacts and initiated targeted approaches to suitable companies on my behalf. This led to a number of exploratory discussions and interviews which gave me the opportunity to examine the best options for my next step. Finally, I joined a major German Medical Device business in a senior marketing and commercial role.
In my experience this level of proactivity and diligence is rare in the recruitment industry, Giles and RMG delivered value for me and my new employer.”
Senior Level Candidate, placed in Vice President Marketing role
“Excellent communication, professional, discrete, honest and supportive. I felt like my aspirations were in very safe hands.
Prompt feedback, excellent coaching and support with handling prospective employers concerns raised at each stage.
Giles and support staff have impressed me hugely throughout. I would recommend them for senior level appointments to any life science business. I hope to work with them again.”

Giles and the team at RMG were approachable, friendly and open to discussing opportunities available and matching these to the appropriate job specification. Fantastic advice for interviews. Attentive and speedy response to communications. Essential follow up and after care provider.”
GK, Candidate - Clinical Field Specialist
“RMG’s ability to find the right candidates is truly impressive. They understand the needs of our business, the challenges we face and manage to find the people that we need to succeed. Overall a first class service.”
Chris Harrison, Group Managing Director - Fresenius Kabi Ltd and Calea UK Ltd
“I was specifically impressed with Giles Hampson’s knowledge of the business and the role in particular. Giles was very supportive throughout the selection process, organised & knowledgeable even to the extent of offering his time to provide feedback on a presentation during a bank holiday weekend and taking my calls ‘after working hours’. Giles certainly went the extra mile to provide support.
I liked that the first interview (with Giles) was conducted in a private meeting room rather than in a public area were there would be distractions and high noise levels.
Support given by yourselves was second to none compared with other recruitment agencies.
I would highly recommend your services.”
Tracy Southon, Candidate - General Manager
“Very pleased with the service received from Giles at RMG. Every stage was handled very professionally and a good standard of candidates was supplied for quite an unusual position in the market place. Every step of the process was clearly communicated with regular updates on progress during the initial search and selection.”
Helen Hardwick, National Strategic Business Manager - Bard Limited
“I found you and your team utterly professional, you took the time to listen and understand exactly what I was looking for and ultimately delivered two high-quality people, resulting in the successful employment of our preferred candidate. I have no doubt this saved me a huge amount of legwork and allowed me to maximise my time in other aspects of my business.”
Divisional Leader, St Jude Medical
“The advice given in approaching the different interviews was very helpful. The insights given into the company culture and the experience and interest areas of the interviewers proved extremely useful.
Giles and RMG were highly professional and kept me informed throughout the interview process. I would certainly recommend them to any colleagues seeking to move roles in the near future.”
Robert Holmes, Country Manager
“A restructure of our Senior Management Team created two opportunities, a Commercial Director for Pelican Healthcare and a Managing Director for Pelican Feminine Healthcare.
RMG, having been recommended, worked closely with us. Understanding the business needs and culture they were able to find the right calibre of candidates for ‘Pelican’. RMG’s support continued right through to the successful candidates joining both companies.
We are delighted to be using their services again as business opportunities continue to develop.”
Assistant Managing Director, Pelican Healthcare
“RMG services are fully tailored and they made the recruitment process much smoother than our previous experiences, enabling us to find the right candidate and saving me time.
Giles took the time to listen to us and quickly understood our needs, he was involved at all stages of the process. Giles has high standards of professionalism, this was evident in the candidates that he selected for us to interview.”
Alice Didier, Managing Director - Aguettant Ltd
“Giles was highly professional during the course of my recruitment, keeping me well informed throughout. I felt the whole process was very confidential, efficient and Giles was extremely supportive.”
CW, Candidate - Distribution Manager
“We have retained RMG to assist us in the process of recruiting sales specialists. Giles and his team have done an exemplary job throughout and have successfully 'narrowed the field' from a good pool of high calibre applications meeting our selection criteria.
RMG assisted our HR department and myself in planning and organising the initial and final interviews. I am impressed that they have been able to actively source talented candidates from both within and outside our traditional market place in order that we can appoint the best individuals.”
Tim Parlam, Toshiba Medical Systems
“Having contracted RMG to address the recruitment of a position we had previously had a few issues with, from the first briefing to the end of the process, everything ran as smoothly as possible. As the recruitment lead Giles kept me up to date with progress throughout and provided a very strong short list. Very professional and efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Andrew Wilcher, General Manager - Medartis Ltd
“As this was my first recruitment since becoming a manager I was keen to establish relationships with RMG to ensure that they understood exactly what I was looking for. My initial impressions were excellent and my first meeting with Giles Hampson was arranged.
At this meeting I provided Giles with a clear brief on the type of person I wanted to recruit emphasising on the key areas that I felt were essential for the role. This meant that the original BDM role profile and advert needed to be changed to encompass my requirements. Giles interpreted my requirements exactly and the brief that was sent to me for approval was exactly what I had asked for.
This then resulted in Giles presenting 5 candidates for first interviews with me, 4 of which I decided to take through to the assessment day at Calea. Following the assessment day I felt that I was in a very strong position as I had 4 excellent candidates and struggled to pick which one I wanted – a very strong position to be in.
We offered our first choice candidate the position and she duly accepted.
I found the whole process very professional. RMG communicated with me at every stage and I was aware of where we were in the process at every stage. Our candidate joined us in March this year and is proving to be an asset to the team already with extremely positive feedback from our London customers and our internal teams.
I was extremely satisfied with the service received from RMG and in particular Giles Hampson and would highly recommend them for future recruitment requirements.”
Pauline Daniel, Fresenius Kabi Ltd & Calea UK Ltd
“A very professional approach and a thorough recruitment process with good communication throughout the process. Chris had a very friendly and approachable manner.”
EQ, Placed Candidate – Regulatory Affairs Manager, Proveca
“Giles was great, called me a couple of times in the lead up to the interview- couldn’t have asked for better support. Giles was very supportive and kept me in the loop and I felt like my best interests were put first.”
LP, Placed Candidate – Product Specialist (London)
“You respected that I was employed when you contacted me, and this was appreciated as it was a big decision to make moving jobs.
Supportive, mutual to both candidate and employer, selling the new role without pressure in a professional way.
I think Giles did a very good job of selling me the new role without any pressure and ensuring any concerns I had were answered.”
