    • “Miles has been my recruiter of choice for the last 6 years. His industry experience and in-depth local market knowledge has helped me build high-performing teams for a variety of multinational organisations in the Thames Valley area. He is always approachable, responsive, quick to understand our needs, and works tirelessly to find the best candidates.”

      EMEA Financial Controller,
    • “It has been great working with Sonia on a major transformation project. Sonia has understood the business, the pace of change that is going on, and has been able to source great candidates for the business to review and in many cases look to take onto the project. She has taken time to understand the key areas of expertise that are required and the constraints that we have in the business to provide the resourcing needs in order to drive the projects and business forward within very tight timescales”

      Finance Director, FTSE 50 FMCG Business,
    • “Sonia has been helping me find interim roles for over 5 years. Sonia has quick to understand not only the type of roles I was looking for but to also understand the cultural fit I wanted for longer term roles.  She has been instrumental in placing me in several roles both with high profile FTSE 100 companies and also a few start ups & SMEs. She has taken the time to get to know me as a candidate and has been a champion at highlighting my strengths and capabilities to prospective clients. She has always made herself available to help not only through the recruitment process but also across the course of any interim assignment.” 

      Financial Controller,
    • "After being put in contact with Miles by one of his colleagues he provided expertise and support in my application for my first role outside of practice. Undoubtedly, the time he invested advising and talking to his relationship and me with the employer contributed to me ultimately landing my ideal position. As a result, I would highly recommend Miles."

      Senior Finance Manager,
    • “Caterina helped me greatly last year in getting me started with my first interview in over 10 years. She helped me to hone my interview and CV skills, and making my CV fit the role I was applying for. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anybody. She knows her industry and is a very easy person to get on with, and it's important that the relationship is there from the outset. Caterina made me feel like the only candidate she had rather than the next one on the list, so thank you!”

      Previous Candidate ,
    • “Caterina has my highest recommendation as a recruiter, from the perspective of both a candidate, and as a customer. Caterina has recruited 4 roles for me, and in each case she has taken the time to understand exactly what I am looking for, in order to ensure that my time is not wasted with a barrage of CVs. Caterina gets what it takes to deliver the right cv's and the right candidates for the role. I cannot recommend Caterina high enough, she delivers every single thing you need from a recruiter in business.”

      Financial Director,
