What people say about us

What people say about us

John Ashcroft

John Ashcroft

“I first met john 8 years ago as a candidate and he managed to place me on the back of the first interview he sent me to. Now several years later I still deal with John but to recruit people into my current company. The vast majority of people I have interviewed from John have received a job offer, I cannot recommend John and the work he has done for me over the years strongly enough.” – Pre-Construction Manager at Careys Civil Engineering

“It was a great experience working with John. He actually makes things happen, not sell you a lot of fake promises like other agents. It was very easy working with him. No time wasted: one phone call, one interview, one email with the job offer, one perfect job archived; all in less then 24 hours! Looking forward to start at my new workplace. Thank you John.” – Senior Structural Engineer at Ground Construction ltd

“John has provided recruitment services to us for a number of years and pays particular attention to detail when it comes to listening to his client’s needs and understanding the job role, and the preferred candidate that the client seeks. With real commitment and effort made through the search process only those that meet the requirements are put forward making the interview stage very effective. Would recommend John to anyone seeking support and advice on opportunities or recruitment in the construction industry.” – Operations Manager – M&J Evans Construction

“John is a conscientious recruiter with drive to broaden his work opportunities by piercing the market. He creates a firm understanding of his candidates skills and demeanour and uses this to ensure he is centralizing his focus in the correct range of roles and clients .His communication is clear and encouraging. John has done great work on my behalf and I can seriously recommend him.”Senior Project Manager – A J Morrisroe & Sons Ltd

“I am VERY grateful to Kim. Some time ago I started looking for a new job, however I wasn’t finding the type of role that I really wanted. It was then when Kim found my profile online and contacted me. We had a first interview where I could introduce myself and explain my professional situation and background, along with what I was aiming for. And on top of this, she was always very kind and understanding! Kim gave me the confidence that I needed and she believed in myself. She got me an interview with one of the largest social housing organisations in the region and before the interview she also gave me very useful tips and advice, making herself available for any questions I could have in advance of the interview. Luckily, the interview went well and I got the job! After the interview Kim also asked me how it went and she was also in touch with the company, managing the whole process from beginning to end. I know my new job wouldn’t have been possible without her help and recommendation, so this is why I would encourage anyone who is in a similar position as I was to contact her, she will be willing to help you!” – Adrian Aranda-Villa – Architect
