Testimonials

It’s all very well posting on your own website how great you are but even we’d admit that could be tainted with a degree of are bias. Therefore, why not read through some of the very kind testimonials that have been written about us:

5/5
“I met Martin whilst looking for a new HR position a couple of years ago. From the very beginning, Martin went the extra mile to fully understand my experience and the types of role that I was looking for. He helped me create a CV which helped me stand out and throughout the process of finding a suitable role he always ensured I was kept updated on progress . I cannot recommend Martin enough! If you are looking for a new role and want that extra personal touch, Martin is your man.”

“I can highly recommend Martin. Although I was out of his immediate area in terms of filling roles, he took the time to listen to me, made sure he understood me and provided me with some really good advice. As my search was quite a long one, his advice was invaluable in helping me keep positive. This was time that he didn't have to spend on me as he was unlikely to get commission from placing me simply due to geographical reasons, but he still took that time and for that I am grateful. Thanks again Martin.”

“I reached out to Martin recently as I had seen a number of his posts. I was looking for someone to offer me some advice on where I was at with my career and where I hope to get to, considering I have recently re-skilled and had somewhat of a career change, making me a little unsure of what options would be open to me. Martin was kind enough to pick up on my call out for help and after a good lengthy phone conversation I was able to sit down and see things from a totally new perspective, indeed not one or two new angles but lots of different avenues to follow up in terms of employers and marketing myself in a new capacity with perhaps most crucially how I needed to get the message across to these potential employers that I have a great level of experience to bring from my career past into my potential new role. What really stood out at the end of the call was Martin was really honest and gave a true evaluation of where he saw me now and in the future, which has been invaluable to me. A refreshing point was that my immediate next steps might not involve me using Martin's services in the short term, but what he talked to me about will definitely help me get moving forward and this is something that I will remember further down the line and I would definitely re-approach Martin then as I feel he offered such valuable advice without expecting any kind of immediate return.”

“Martin has been a great help in finding employment through truly listening and tailoring suggestions to my aspirations. Martin has supported me throughout the entire process, answering many questions swiftly and clearly through sharing his vast amount of knowledge and different industries.”

HR Generalist
“Martin contacted me by chance as he noticed I was looking to extend my team. Martin couldn't have contacted me at a better time as the agency I had gone to on an exclusivity basis had failed miserably and I was in need of help to recruit quickly. Martin took the time to come and see me to really understand the requirements of the role, understand our business and get a feel for what I really wanted. Martin provided an incredible service and what was great was as his background was HR - as he has been a HR Manager/HR Business Partner before he understood everything which was a real plus! Throughout the process, Martin was reliable, courteous, professional and extremely helpful, and I’d recommend contacting Martin if you have a vacancy as he will go the extra mile to find suitable candidates for your business. The calibre of the candidates put forward were excellent which resulted in a successful placement. I would most definitely go to Martin again as I continue to extend my team in the near future.”

EMEA HR Manager
“I met Martin whilst looking for a new HR position at the end of last year. I had contacted and been contacted by a number of agencies and often felt that the service was impersonal and that the recruiters did not have time to fully understand my experience and the type of roles I was looking for. I was often being offered interviews for roles that weren't the right fit. From the very beginning, Martin went the extra mile to fully understand my experience and the types of role that I was looking for. He gave constructive feedback and advice throughout the process of finding a suitable role and always ensured I was kept updated on progress up to and beyond successfully placing me in a new role. I cannot recommend Martin enough!”
Aimee
HR Manager
“I first met Martin when he was working as an in-house recruitment specialist, I found him to be honest, ethical and dedicated. Several years later our paths crossed again when I was looking for a new role. Martin’s approach makes a refreshing change from many other recruiters. He is genuinely interested in finding the right fit for you as an individual and provides constructive feedback on opportunities and applications. Once I had secured a new role, I worked with Martin again to recruit my replacement. He really took the time to understand the organisation’s needs and source appropriate and appointable candidates. I would definitely recommend Martin to professionals either seeking a new role or recruiting to one.”
Kate
HR Business Partner
“Martin provided incredible service whilst supporting me in recruiting to a fixed-term contract position. Throughout the process, he was reliable, courteous, professional and helpful, and I’d recommend contacting Martin if you have a vacancy as he will go the extra mile to find suitable candidates for consideration. The calibre of the candidates put forward was excellent with a great end result! Highly recommend.”
