Kat has delivered a first class service for me on more than one occasion.

She understands our requirements as a business and uses her expert knowledge of the industry to place great candidates in our department.

Within 24 hours of approaching Kat with details of our vacancy, she had sourced and we had interviewed a candidate who has proved to be ideally suited to our requirements.

Kat Paterson-Browne provided an extremely professional and helpful service to us this time. She really listened to what we wanted and gave us some excellent candidates. She was efficient without being pushy, which is a refreshing change from some of the other agencies that contact me!”

We were delighted with the service we received from Bruckshaws.

We received quality CV’s promptly and also a visit to discuss our needs in more detail.  The whole process was efficient, friendly and hassle free and we will definitely use this recruitment agency again in the future.

"I would certainly recommend Bruckshaws. Many agencies aim to fill a job quota, Bruckshaws aims to put the right person in the right job."

I always find that Bruckshaw Associates offer a service second to none and are my first call when recruiting.

The staff, especially Clare Shearer, are always very friendly and really listen, understand and tailor everything to the customer making interviewing and selection a fairly painless process.  Both of the fairly recent employees I have had from Bruckshaws have been/are excellent.

When I need a recruitment agent, Bruckshaws is my first choice.

When I need a recruitment agent, Bruckshaws is my first choice.  The person you recommened was an excellent candidate and is an asset to our company.

Bruckshaw’s will be my agency of choice going forward

Chloe was a pleasure to work with – she took the time to come in, meet with me face to face and to understand what we were looking for. While she bought a number of CVs with her, she realised that a number of them weren’t right and didn’t trouble me with them. Her shortlist was spot on, and either candidate would have been suitable. Our new recuit fits in perfectly with the team and has put us to shame with her knowledge and enthusiasm! Thanks very much – Bruckshaw’s will be my agency of choice going forward.

Your help, once again, in securing a candidate has been immense.

I reiterate comments that I have made in the past insofar that you guys are without doubt the most engaging, the most understanding of my needs and without doubt, simply the best hands down, in terms of any agency relationship I have ever had!

"I want to say thank you for the help

"I want to say thank you for the help. The service from you was excellent. You listened, challenged, took time to understand Emmaus. You made us feel we were the only ones you were interested in. You seemed to know the people you were sending well. It was straightforward, unfussy, and the price was better than competitors. If we need to use an agency again- we will be coming back to you"

This is the second time in a couple of years that I have used Bruckshaws across two different companies, and I firmly regard them as the best independently owned specialist finance recruitment company in the area.

As the leading publisher of local history books in the UK, we needed Bruckshaws to find an accountant who also excelled in written communication.

Not only did they rise to this challenge but their candidate was also the best prepared.

Having the contact at an agency who understands us, means that the selection process is far less difficult than it would otherwise be.

I have utilised Bruckshaws over the past 5-6 years and always felt that they had taken the time to understand our business and in particular our needs.  For me personally,it is imperative that when recruiting, our values are already known, and this makes selection so much easier.

Having the contact at an agency who understands us, means that the selection process is far less difficult than it would otherwise be. I would have no hesitation in using Bruckshaws again or moreover recommending them to others, indeed they are already working on our next position.

The quality of the candidates that we have seen has always been high and is indicative of Bruckshaw’s well deserved reputation in the local market.

I have used Clare to recruit for 3 seperate positions in the last 12 months and have always found her to be exemplary in her approach, very professional, honest and easy to deal with.

On each occasion Clare has taken the time to really understand the specifics of the role, the type of candidate that we were looking for and the relevant skills, experience and personal qualities that would suit. The direct result of this attention to detail is that Clare has always been able to provide CVs for those candidates that are directly suitable for the role.

I think the service provided by Bruckshaw’s is excellent.

Jenny provided a mix of candidates which was very helpful especially as I wasn’t sure initially whether to opt for someone with experience or someone who would require more training. Jenny’s email summary of each candidate was very useful.

I think the service provided by Bruckshaw’s is excellent. I would use you again (we already are) and would happily recommend you to other colleagues”

Clare listened to my requirements and understood exactly what I needed.

Earlier this year I was searching for an Assistant Management Accountant for a year long maternity contract.  I had interviewed several candidates to no avail and then I enlisted the help of Clare Shearer at Bruckshaw’s. Clare listened to my requirements and understood exactly what I needed.  She immediately furnished me with details of a select number of highly appropriate candidates and assisted with arranging interviews.

I am extremely happy to say that with Clare’s help I found my ideal candidate and he has settled in wonderfully bringing with him knowledge and experience which I have quickly come to rely on. I shall definitely enlist Clare’s help again when I embark on my next recruitment campaign.  I found her to be professional and efficient and am happy to say I am not harassed by her or her team which often is the case with recruitment agencies.

"We have always received quality candidates,

a consultative approach and good recruitment advice from Bruckshaws. The consultants operate with a high level of integrity and enthusiasm. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."

The attention to detail and the determination to deliver is second to none

I write to offer my recommendation of Bruckshaws as a specialist recruitment consultancy, and specifically our primary contact, Clare Shearer.

I have been recruiting staff for 15 years across all areas of the UK, I have been genuinely impressed by the quality of support and focussed activity of Clare.  The attention to detail and the determination to deliver is second to none, and this is matched by her obvious honesty and integrity.

Clare brings a high level of expertise in specialist Finance recruitment with excellent local candidate knowledge, ably demonstrated by the fact that she has recruited all 5 of my Finance staff from Financial Controller to Accounts Clerk.  The reassurance this has given me has allowed me to leave finding candidates to Clare, while I focus on running my business.

Your help, once again, in securing a candidate has been immense

I reiterate comments that I have made in the past insofar that you guys are without doubt the most engaging, the most understanding of my needs and without doubt, simply the best hands down, in terms of any agency relationship I have ever had!"

I have been impressed by the quality and responsiveness of the service provided by the staff at Bruckshaws.

On two recent recruitments within a few days a short list of excellent candidates was presented which closely matched the job specification.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

 

I was also pleased with the post recruitment service from Bruckshaws.

Bruckshaws were excellent. They  understood the urgency, the type of staff we were looking for and acted swiftly keeping us fully informed of progress in arranging for candidates to come in for an interview.  I was impressed by all the candidates I interviewed and all the candidates we took on from Bruckshaws stayed the course and have been permanent members of staff. Unfortunately not the case with one of the other recruitment agencies.

I was also pleased with the post recruitment service from Bruckshaws. They made regular contact for progress updates: to check all was going well with candidates and always offered assistance if needed.

"We have used Bruckshaws for all of our permanent finance recruitments over the last 5 years

 and always have found that they listen to our requirements both qualification and personality for the vacancy and come up with an excellent shortlist of suitable candidates.

 The service from requirement to post placement is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend them".

"I have had a long standing relationship with Bruckshaw Associates which began in August 2005 when I registered as a candidate

When I was appointed Financial Controller at Weird Fish in 2008 my partnership with Clare Shearer began who was assigned the account. It was clear in the early stages that Clare was going to take the time to thoroughly familiarize herself with the intricacies of the business and the type of Finance candidates who work well within the fast paced environment of clothing wholesale and retail.

Clare takes on the brief for the role in person and fully understands the importance of getting both the technical fit for Finance right and the key personality traits to fit the existing team. In the early stages, I used Bruckshaw Associates alongside other PLC recruiters, but it became apparent that Clare not only knew her candidate database more thoroughly than other consultants, she also had exclusively registered candidates

All of my appointments into my finance team in the last 3 years have been candidates sourced by Clare. This has been a mix of accounting support and qualified accountants. I would highly recommend Bruckshaw Associates for the quality of their database, excellent customer service, and professionalism."   

Kat works hard to meet client need, from the inception of a request, through clearly understanding the requirements and agreeing the delivery and execution of all recruitment projects she has been asked to help with

"Kat works hard to meet client need, from the inception of a request, through clearly understanding the requirements and agreeing the delivery and execution of all recruitment projects she has been asked to help with. Her attention to detail, her tenacity and her professional approach both with clients and candidates is a breath of fresh air. This recommendation comes from an HR professional somewhat jaded by recruitment agencies who lose the "human approach"; in the chase for business and targets. If you want professional delivery as well as a flexible and caring approach then Kat and the wider team at Bruckshaws come highly recommended."
