“ Matt found me my opportunity at Explore - he went out of his way to understand me as a candidate and came back with relevant roles. His own background as a high billing IT Contract Recruiter and knowledge of the marketplace puts him head and shoulders above a poorly serviced market. I would recommend his service to any candidate or client.” “ From day one I have been impressed with Claire. Her initial introduction to ePeople was well researched and polished, without being too pushy. The quality of candidates and service soon made it obvious that she was someone who would add real value to our recruitment process but even more important than that she is a person who's opinion I trust, a vital ingredient in any recruitment relationship. I hope to continue working with her for many years and have no doubt Red-Ventures will become THE leading player in Rec2Rec both in Manchester and across the UK.” Testimonials “ Having had a bad experience with Rec to Rec’s in the past and concerned about current market conditions I was surprised by the positive, professional and upbeat approach shown to me by Red Ventures. Their knowledge of being IT recruiters themselves gave me the confidence that they knew what they were talking about in securing my new role.” “ Dan is a diligent and thorough recruiter and was a great help when I was looking for a new position. He answered any questions I had and provided me with information I asked for with the minimum of fuss. He knows his clients and his market and most importantly he listens to his candidates. I’d recommend Dan’s professionalism and personality whether you’re looking to hire or looking for a new position.” “ Clare found me my new opportunity with ConSol Partners. I only asked for one or two options as I didn't want to be bogged down in my search for employer as I had had a couple of bad experiences with Rec to Rec companies and their recommendations. She hit the right note when she recommended me to the role. It was an excellent fit with great opportunity to grow my side of the business. I would be happy to recommend Clare to people as she has a deep understanding of the market and her customers, also a thank you to her colleague Matt who looked after me whilst Clare was on holiday.”
“ Claire is an impressive businesswoman. It is a rare skill to be able to judge and adapt to the pace of process both client and candidate are comfortable with but Claire makes this looks very easy. From the first time we spoke it was clear that Claire has an encyclopedic knowledge of her marketplace and in doing so was able to deliver 100% relevant opportunities. Completely efficient at all times Claire is nevertheless totally personable in her approach. Awesome results combined with a great personality. I look forward to working with Claire from the “other side of the fence” now.” “ Matt has been a fantastic help in securing me my new role – I had recently been made redundant and found myself with only a weeks notice to find a new job. Matt secured me an interview with a company that was a perfect match and I started the following week!” “ I was recommended by a colleague to speak to Gilles who instantly got into the detail of exactly what I was looking for while also giving me a detailed outline of what is and isn’t available in the current climate. Gilles successfully secured me an opportunity that I am more than happy with and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new opportunity in IT recruitment.” “ I have recently become aware of Matt at a Elite Leaders meeting, he has launched a Rec2Rec organisation (Red Ventures) for IT Recruitment, I have received 2 CV's in which one individual has joined me, an SAP Recruiter whom has great potential. Matt brings an understanding of delivery to the Rec2Rec world which I currently believe it lacks. Great chap, full of energy and ensures the delivery to the end, Great, Thanks and Well Done!” Testimonials “ I first had the pleasure of working with Sam at the start of 2008 when I was first looking to move from my then company. Sam was, from the start, thorough, understanding and reliable. He had working relationships with some large organizations and could offer me inside advice and knowledge. The roles he found for me were always relevant and thoroughly discussed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sam or using him myself as a client if I ever need to in the future.”
“ I worked with Carra for two years as Team Leader for HR Staff Search. Carra has excellent communication skills and was fantastic at managing relationships through trying circumstances. Her resourcing, candidate and client preparation and closing skills are first class and with her attention to detail it made the recruitment process a breeze. In the time I worked with Carra (both as a candidate and then a colleague) and she always provided results. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and feel she is a fantastic asset to any recruitment or sales team.” “ GCS have worked with Matt consistently over the last few years but it has normally been through our HR team, this is the first time I had engaged him personally. I chose to use Matt’s services to find a new experienced recruiter for our Birmingham office as his past record was pretty good. I spent 10 minutes on the phone to Matt detailing my requirements and he went away and came back quickly with excellent candidates. Not only has he provided great candidates but he is a likeable individual that whilst doing his job properly is not an overpowering salesman. He is a good guy and delivers good candidates. I recommend him highly.” “ Daniel has provided an excellent service to our company and is diligent, professional and willing to go the extra mile. The candidates sourced for us are of a high quality and invariably relevant to our needs. Happy to recommend him.” Testimonials Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Manchester: 0161 602 3720 Peter House, Oxford Street, Manchester M1 5AN London: 020 8895 4030 City Point, 1 Ropemaker Street, London EC2Y 9HT Contact Us
