Testimonials

I was approached by Alastair regarding the opportunity at Shaws of Darwen and immediately felt it was the perfect role for me. I met with Alastair on the Wednesday morning, had been for my first interview by that afternoon and was offered the position by the following week. Having been made redundant, this sort of quick turnaround was exactly what I was looking for. Alastair’s encouragement and guidance helped me prepare effectively for the second interview and was without doubt a key factor in getting me the role.

Katherine Hughes, Finance Director, Shaws of Darwen

I approached Alastair when I was looking to appoint a Financial Controller within my business. This was a very important recruit for me and after meeting with Alastair to discuss the role I felt more than confident that his approach and understanding of the role and its importance would deliver the desired results. I secured the perfect candidate for the role and my business, the whole process ran smoothly over a short period of time thanks to Alastair’s involvement. Subsequently I have been happy to work with Alastair again recruiting an Accounts Assistant.

David Dare, Managing Director, Shaws of Darwen

I have recruited through Alastair in the past and have been impressed by his understanding of the market. I would have no hesitation in referring my clients to them whenever a recruitment need arises, and have done so on a number of occasions.
