“Jane gets under the skin of the business and the candidates and matches the two together successfully. Her industry contacts are second to none as she has worked with many of the candidates throughout their careers, knowing when the next move is required and matching with the right brand. Now proudly under her own label House of Mason”
Alistair Cameron – CEO ASICS EMEA

“I have worked with Jane Mason for over three years on a varying amount of difficult placements with great success. Jane is unique in the service she provides, combining a wealth of global knowledge of the branded industries and key roles she works on, with a full appreciation for Brand DNA and fit.  She will spend the time understanding your brand, strategy and different characters within the team and from that present a quality selection of candidates to meet criteria set.  Jane is highly respected by both companies and a large network of candidates, so with honest and transparent relationships she is fantastic at offering an incredibly positive and supportive process for all parties. Her industry knowledge also means Jane is able to provide strong, researched advice on benchmarking, title, structure and more should you need it. Jane provides a superior, unique and personalised service to a very high standard. I wish her every continued success.”
Georgina Cameron – HR Manager at Hunter Boot Ltd

“I believe you are only as good as the team around you and Jane has consistently helped to ensure this is the case for me. Jane understands the importance of not only placing skill within a company, but people who fit. She fundamentally knows what makes our company tick which is why I trust her judgement in recruiting effectively for us. I was really happy to hear that the first placement from “House Of Mason Jobs” was into my team.”
Charlie Middleton – Product Director at Fred Perry Limited

“I have known Jane for almost 10 years and during that time we have worked together on several recruitment projects. She has a great depth of knowledge within the recruitment, fashion and retail sectors. She has provided support, understanding, and management throughout each assignment. Having worked closely with Jane over many years, in my experience she is a dedicated professional who goes beyond the call of duty and never gives anything less than 100%. She is extremely personable, has a great sense of fun and is well liked by all who have worked with her. She has excellent organisational and multi-tasking skills, which is essential when managing complex and demanding briefs. The candidates that Jane put’s forward are always second to none and really meet the needs of the brief. This demonstrates that Jane has an excellent understanding of the business requirement and the industry as a whole. I always found that the candidates were extremely well briefed and delivered during the interview process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and would look to work with her on both a client and candidate basis – quite simply she is a cut above the competition.”
Richard Shetliffe – UK & Ireland Country Manager at Havaianas

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jane in many ways for almost ten years which began with my very own mediocre CV. Jane was able to see a career discipline change in me that I could not, and it turned out to be the defining moment in my career. She has since then supported me in recruiting many of the industries most talented individuals by simply investing time and expertise in understanding what each business needs, in line with what a candidate aspires also. Jane is as connected as anyone in the industry and is a fantastic professional. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her team!”
Darren Campbell – Global Merchandise Director, Dr Martens (Formerly Footwear Director Asics EMEA,  Global Category Director Lacoste Footwear)

“I would wholeheartedly recommend Jane to any company or prospective candidate. When working with Jane as a client, she doesn’t just make sure that the job spec etc is correct, but looks to really appreciate the work environment and culture of the company. People & culture fit is Jane’s focus and results in a more thorough shortlist so reducing the time spent on the recruitment process overall. I have also twice seen this as a candidate. Jane has put me forward for two roles and both were successful – a good track record! Again it wasn’t just that I matched the brief from a knowledge and experience perspective, but she understood the needs of the organisations, she understood my strengths and personality and could see me in the roles.”
Daniel Morris – Managing Director at Paul’s Boutique

“Having worked with Jane for a couple of years now I would recommend her for the way she goes about successfully recruiting high calibre candidates. Jane has been able to develop a deep understanding of The Barbour business and this is crucial to ensure she is only putting people forward who will fit into the culture and style of our business. Jane is open and transparent in everything she does, so you are left feeling confident that she does understand what you’re looking for, and will work hard to get it for you.”
Matt Gillard – Training and Development Manager at Barbour

“Jane has supported my various recruitment needs for a period of time.  She is someone I quickly learned to trust and I always enjoy the times when we collaborate. Jane is very knowledgeable about  the industry and is my default ‘go to’ person when I have a recruitment need no matter how big or small.”
Mathew Johnson – Senior HR Manager at Alfred Dunhill Ltd
