"Professional, friendly and extremely communicative"
Jonathan took the time to see and understand the potential in my skillset and advise me on my approach to applying for positions. He successfully secured me in an exciting new role that I may have overlooked without his support and confidence. He has been professional, friendly and extremely communicative throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend and work with with him again.
"He was there every step of the way"
Ben was a great recruitment consultant to work with. He was there every step of the way through my interview process and always available to answer any questions I had. He even called me on his day off to tell me I had received a job offer!
"The best recruiting process I have ever participated in"
I'm so grateful that I can barely put it into words. Jonathan helped me get my first job as a software developer. It was the best recruiting process I have ever participated in. He was very professional, he knew what he was talking about. I got tremendous support during recruitment. You're great at what you do. Thank you Jonathan!
Nothing was too much
Jonathan recently helped me land a new role. From my initial message Jonathan was super responsive & helpful, nothing was too much and he was a joy to work with. I look forward working together in the future to help me fill positions in my team.
"Extremely professional and helpful"
Extremely professional and helpful, Jonathan has been amazing to work with. I have worked with a broad spectrum of recruitment and placement specialists, it is rare to find someone who is interested only in your best interests and takes such a composed and professional approach to helping you find your next role. Nothing but positive experience with Jonathan, cannot recommend enough.
"He has an excellent network"
I’ve worked exclusively with Jonathan for four years now. During this time he has sourced the majority of our software development team. He has an excellent network and has unearthed some great developers from a diverse range of backgrounds. Always willing to go the extra mile and provide detailed market knowledge I’d have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan to any tech business looking to scale up.
"The did an excellent job"
Having had bad experiences with a recruitment company I was reluctant to engage again, however Jonathan and his team visited our business twice pre engagement and I felt they understood our wishes, we explained what we thought we wanted. After careful consideration they asked us to reconsider the candidate's entry level . We interviewed several good candidates, then they turned up trumps. Whilst we broke the bank to fill the role what they predicted is happening the more senior role has added value immediately and we are delighted with the result. I’d have no hesitation to recommend Jonathan and his team. They did an excellent job!
