Testimonials

Always diligent, dedicated and highly professional. A real pleasure having Conor act as my agent, finding me valuable team members and even helping with my own appointments over the years. Conor has become a good friend too, not just a valued business contact.

Programme Change Manager – Major Client Organisation

Conor exceeded all expectations from day one of contacting him. The utmost professional yet caring and extremely personable. Conor has traits that many recruiters lack – honesty, integrity and advice that’s best for the individual, not just the Company. It has been a pleasure to know Conor and would recommend him to anyone.

 

Planning Manager – Main Contractor

“I have known Richard since 2010 when he secured for me a Senior Planner role on the Crossrail Programme. I have been undertaking contract work through a number of Agencies however Richard stands out for his attention to detail, his understanding of Project Control roles, enthusiasm and he is always supportive.
I have also recommended other candidates to him and they too have been very pleased with his professionalism and integrity.”

Project Controls Manager – Major Contractor

Unlike the majority of agents in the market place Richard treats his contractors with the same level of respect as he does his clients.

In an industry where more and more agencies are treating their contractors like cannon fodder it is refreshing to interact with someone with the integrity of Richard. Richard found me a Senior Planning Engineer position on a long term basis.

Senior Planning Engineer – Principle Contractor

I have known Richard since 2001, Richard is one of the few people in the Recruitment industry that I respect, he is a true professional. He understands strengths of potential candidates and aligns them to technical requirements and the needs of client. He is someone who take the time to ascertain all relevant facts and requirements from both the candidate and client.
I see Richard as the benchmark for any recruiter who are tasked with helping potential candidates with finding a new position.
