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 for many years now and I have always been very comfortable to recommend her as a trusted business partner. Jane has a deep knowledge of talent in the sector and most importantly she has an astute ability to listen, understand your needs and therefore shortlist only the most suitable candidates for you. Over and above this, Jane is extremely well connected, brilliant to chat to and has unquestionable integrity. Be prepared to want to work with her for a long time!
Marco Ellerker – Vice President & General Manager at Deckers EMEA (UGG, HOKA, Teva, Sanuk & Koolaburra)
I have known Jane for a number of years and I have experienced the support and knowledge she has to offer as both someone looking to further their career as well as someone looking to bring talented people into a brand. Jane has the ability to understand what you are looking for in someone and can easily relate the character and personality that is the right fit for the culture you have in your team. Trusting someone to be able to make the connection between a candidates personality and skill set and a brands needs means that after a successful placement you have the faith that the relationship will go from strength to strength and be longstanding. Jane is also very personable and makes the whole process stress free because of her honesty and professionalism and how she approaches each role / opportunity with a genuine desire to help you. I have always enjoyed working with Jane and you never finish a conversation without a smile on your face . I look forward to working with her for years to come as she helps many more people in their career development.

(Formerly Country Manager – Bestseller)
Working with Jane and House of Mason for over 17 years has been both a privilege and a pleasure, as both client and candidate. With her wide ranging knowledge of the industry, Jane consistently delivers against a wide range of recruitment briefs while also acting a key partner and valued advisor in helping building and developing talented teams. I have no hesitation in recommending Jane and House of Mason.
Paul Humphrey – Ex-General Manager (EMEA); Ex-Group HR Director at Dr Martens Airwair
Ex-General Manager; Current NED at LazyOaf
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 – Commercial Director at Fred Perry (Holdings) Ltd
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 – Chief Product & Marketing Officer, 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.
