What people say about us

Taryn Clegg

“We’ve worked with Laura for many years now, across many different roles within the IDHL Group.

For me the key to a great recruiter is a good solid working relationship, where they understand your requirements, pressures and expectations. I can give Laura a brief and feel confident that she understands the skills require, but far more importantly the culture fit that we hold as a key measure in all our recruitment.”

​"I have used Search to fill senior and junior management positions throughout our group. In each recruitment campaign where I’ve worked with John, he has taken the time and made the effort to get to know my business and how the role fits in. The result of which has meant CV’s are relevant and candidates come well briefed and prepared.

So without any hesitation, I can say that I will continue to use Search in whatever location when needs arise."

​"Between initial contact and an offer being made, John was absolutely superb. He gave me additional information before interviews, messaged me just after to find out how they went and he most importantly kept me in the loop.

Sometimes you can just tell from how someone interacts with you what type of person they are and I can tell he is professional, honest and generous with his time. I'd recommend him to anyone."

​"Alex is hands down one of the best recruiters I have worked with in my career. Whenever we spoke he always had a great attitude and personality, whilst remaining professional. I felt like I was in safe hands and he was doing the best he could for me.

I would definitely recommend Alex's services and use him again."

​"I worked with Alex when I was looking for a new role and he was fantastic at every stage.

Alex was keen to understand my experience but also what I was looking for in future roles, to ensure he put me forward for the positions. He went above and beyond to make the process as simple as possible, always sending through feedback, briefs and contracts straight after he'd received them."
