Jonas Huckestein Founder at Monzo Bank
Druthers always obtain amazing support and buy in from stakeholders. My work with them has resulted in some amazing hires, people who have made a wonderful impact and added breadth and diversity to our leadership teams. They are also lovely and I genuinely enjoy working with them!
Kaija Barnes Head of Talent at Kaluza
Diverse hiring in tech is tough at any level but at senior leadership it’s even harder. Partnering with Druthers allowed us to guarantee the shortlist for Head Of Engineering and VP Engineering search was as broad in experience and expertise as it was broad in representation. I know I can trust Kiri and the team to be our best ambassadors in the market, and bring a pragmatic approach to what is always a complex and lengthy process.
Tim Smith Head of Talent at Clearscore
Great recruiters are few and far between so if you get the chance to work with Kirsty or her team, bite off their hand. Kirsty has been my go-to hiring partner both when I’m searching for my next adventure and when I’m hiring. She stands apart from all other recruitment partners I’ve worked with in that she really takes the time to understand who you are, what you need and what your requirements are.
Natalie Wood VP Engineering at Hokodo
From the very first contact and conversation with Kiri I had the impression I found a true unicorn, a recruiter that really gets what we’re trying to achieve and most of all, someone who really cared about everyone involved.
Benjamin Reitzammer VP Engineering at BRYTER
As a candidate it was a great experience working with Druthers, they found me a great match for my skill set and most importantly a company that matched my desire to work somewhere that had a purpose that personally resonated with me.
Jaime Lee-Choon Engineering Director at Kaluza
Infogrid engaged Kirsty at Druthers on a tough role for which we had a specific set of asks and a high bar. It’s fair to say Kirsty was a joy to work with! True partnerships are hard to come by in the recruitment world but Kirsty has a client-first approach, a genuine deep knowledge of the market and an empathy for what internal hiring teams and stakeholders are going through. We hired a fantastic candidate and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Druthers in the future.   
Ed Ross Director of Talent Acquisition at Infogrid
Kirsty did a brilliant job helping me to recruit for some design leadership roles at Intercom – in both IC and management positions. Kirsty worked really well with myself and our internal recruiting team, quickly gaining a good understanding of our company and roles that we were looking for. She used this understanding to source and introduce us to some interesting and diverse candidates.

We’re very happy to have successfully partnered with Druthers in two executive searches, Kiri being our trusted consultant in both. Druthers always showed up with the highest sense of respect, customer centricity, and inclusivity, and they’ve helped Hotjar build a more diverse and inclusive leadership team. 
It was a real pleasure working with Kiri and Kirsty when conducting our search for a CTO. They clearly had a deep knowledge of the market and a diverse pipeline of candidates which was extremely important for us. We’re really pleased with the candidate we finally hired and wouldn’t hesitate in re-engaging Druthers for a similar search in the future.
As the CTO of our organization, I had the privilege of working closely with Kiri from Druthers during our search for a Head of Platforms. Kiri’s expertise as a technical recruiter is unparalleled. She consistently presented us with exceptionally high-quality candidates, demonstrating a deep understanding of our needs and the technical nuances of the role. Her dedication and professionalism played a pivotal role in helping us secure the perfect fit for our team.

We worked with Learnerbly on their search for a CTO, after their series-A funding round. We partnered with them to design the most inclusive interview process possible, in the search for a candidate who had faced similar challenges around growth and scaling, able to mature their engineering culture, processes and ways of working, who also had strong values alignment to the team and company culture.
