Testimonials

Ollie is one of our most valued recruitment partners. From the beginning he got his head around our business and understood the calibre of people that we look for. Unlike some of his peers, Ollie does not fill my inbox with the CVs of people who only vaguely fit the bill. When he tells me that he has someone interesting for me I know that I should take a look. Having that filter at the front end makes my working life so much easier. On top of all that he is a nice guy and a pleasure to deal with.

Tony Martin
Head of Global HR Operations / Sapphire systems

“Working with Harrison is a joy, he is conscientious, courteous, hard-working and exceptionally knowledgeable in his field. He also sees the wider picture and helps develop the connections between people for their mutual benefit. Harrison is not afraid to try his hand and new things and worked hard on the organisation and preparation to make the first RPA Meetup in London a huge success.”

Rob King
Director / Wzard Innovation

In a given day, I've received an email message from Ollie through LinkedIn saying that he had one opportunity suited to my profile. Which indeed, he had. With his knowledge of the ERP market and also of his customer environment, he answered all my questions around the opportunity at once, making me comfortable enough to pursue it. A couple of meetings later, offer negotiated and accepted! Would recommend Ollie to all job seekers out there.

Pablo Castagnini
Head of Consultancy / Sapphire systems

Ollie has provided my company with first class service and support in terms of our recruiting requirements. He took the time to understand our brief for the type of candidates we required and only presented top quality people for interview. I would recommend giving Ollie a try if you are looking for a good recruitment firm.

He was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help throughout the process. Would highly recommend. Thank you!”

Gatien Gillon
COO / IPH Brammer / Rubix

“Harrison has a deep knowledge of our market and provided an excellent service with good on-going communication and feedback on a regular basis. In a previous life I was a director of a mid-sized staffing company and can tell the good from the bad. Harrison is from the good side and definitely lives up to his surname (before someone added the 'e' on the end of course)!”

He was able to quickly ascertain our needs and find incredibly talented and qualified candidates. Extremely satisfied with the services he and his company provide!”

Working with Will during recent job search was a revelation. He took the time to meet me face to face and really understand my goals. The impact of this was I felt like a customer not just a candidate.

I have no doubt I will work with Will again, and would not hesitate to recommend him if you are recruiting or looking for the next move.
