Garry Armstrong - Senior Product Manager

John and the team are extremely professional and helped me immensely throughout my whole interview process, going above and beyond expectations to ensure I was fully prepared. They did an incredible job and I would recommend TalentTech highly.

Emily Reddi - Sales Development Representative

Recruiting through TalentTech Recruitment has been a really refreshing experience. Honest and practical recruitment with feedback throughout the process giving valuable input when needed. We have now successfully recruited our two new Business Development Managers and should we be looking to add to the team we will certainly instruct you once again. Thanks very much Nick, John & the team.

HR Director, UK Engineering Company

A big thankyou to Josh and Dave at TalentTech Recruitment who have helped me secure my new role. Their help and support through this challenging time has been invaluable and without their input I very much doubt I would have got this position. I have let my new employer know of their input and will happily recommend them for all future recruitment.

Louise Oldham - Sales Account Manager

John and the team at TalentTech Recruitment are an absolute credit to themselves. John worked tirelessly with myself throughout every stage of the recruitment process, and it was with his help and support that I was successful in securing the perfect role within a fantastic company. He made sure that I was constantly kept informed during every step of the process, providing me with even the smallest details and information required. His extensive knowledge of the whole recruitment process and his attention to detail were second to none and I would absolutely not hesitate in recommending John, Nick and the team at TalentTech to anyone with specialist recruitment requirements, the guys will 100% give you the upmost effort and commitment. I can't thank them enough, it has been an absolute pleasure working with them

Neil Foster - National Trade Sales Manager

John was a complete professional when it came to supporting me through the interview process. Very easy to speak to and gave great advice on his client. Would go to again if I find myself out of a job!

Thomas Davies - Customer Success Executive

Josh & John were very timely throughout the process, and both very easy to talk with. Constructive input without the need to follow up for information made communication very practical. John was very considerate and professional, which helped put my mind at ease. I have now secured a brilliant role in an excellent company with the help of a faultless process from TalentTech.

Dominic Protacio - Sales Development Representative

Its great to see a recruitment company that listens to the client and explains the process to us. The project to hire a National Sales Manager wasn’t without its challenges in this competitive market for candidates but the team at TalentTech kept us updated and informed throughout the hiring process.

Sales Director - Global Technology provider

David was fantastic to work with. Very helpful, supportive and I'm very grateful to him for putting me forward to a cracking sales role that I have now secured. I highly recommend David and the team around him at talenttech recruitment!

Engineering Director – Global Technical Organisation

Martin Reppion - Business Development Manager

Thank you to the whole Team at TalentTech for the quality of the shortlist you have presented to me yesterday. Four of the candidates were excellent and I only wanted to take three back for 2nd interviews so it is going to give me a real headache having to choose three for final interview.

National Sales Manager – UK Construction Manufacturer

We have worked with TalentTech for the last 6 months and they have supported our transition as we aim to strengthen certain areas of the UK business. What started as filling one of our vacant area sales roles that we had struggled with has given us the opportunity to get TalentTech engaged to successfully help in other divisions. Its been refreshing to find a company that just “get” recruitment having had a number of negative experience with previous suppliers.

HR Director – Technical Scientific & Laboratory Manufacturer

What a great find! Thanks John, for providing us with our latest Sales Development Representative for the West Midlands & Warwickshire area. We look forward to the candidate starting and enjoying their sales career with us. I will certainly recommend you to my colleagues throughout the business.

Mid-Market Sales Manager – MarTech Software Vendor

Its been a pleasure to work with Team TalentTech on our latest planned recruitment campaign, we found the process to be smooth and were kept informed throughout the hiring of our latest engineer. In a difficult market with a specific brief they were able to provide a strong shortlist giving us a number of options. Big thanks particularly to Nick for his help and professionalism.

Technical Service Manager – European Packaging Equipment Supplier

Thank you to Nick and the team at TalentTech recruitment for your help on our recent recruitment project. You were up against 2 other recruitment suppliers but the quality of the candidates and the service to both ourselves and the successful candidate was excellent. You have proved to be a valuable partner and will now be our chosen preferred supplier for all UK recruitment.

National Sales Manager – Global Manufacturer of Industrial Capital Equipment

John and Nick were very helpful in supporting me on the recruitment process. They were very accommodating during my out of hours office calls and responded to emails and messages very promptly. They ensured that the company was fit for purpose for my needs and demands and encouraged me to Pursue this company which being part of Filtermist now has been challenging and fulfilling. John and Nick are professional, pro-active and pleasant gentlemen to be involved with. I would certainly recommend them as a recruiter both from a candidate and a hiring managers perspective

Manpreet Maan - Proposals Engineer

I work with a number of other agencies but John is by far the most professional and is at the top of my preferred supplier list. He not only knows our business and has a real knack of finding the candidates that have the right skills, attitudes and behaviours that fit our culture, but he goes out of his way to get the know the hiring managers and then simplifies the recruitment process for them. As a result of this, he managed to fill a senior level role flawlessly and, although it was a difficult task, he found a truly talented member of our leadership team who is already adding value to their team and the business overall.

MD – Global Engineering OEM

Nick is a consummate professional and his help has been invaluable throughout my recent job-hunting process. Having not been on the job market for a while, the interview and presentation advice he gave me made a huge difference and helped me to secure the role I really wanted. I really appreciate all the effort and assistance and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Regional Sales Manager – Technology

The recruitment process can often be arduous but we found TalentTech to be honest and transparent throughout, which is very refreshing and we’re pleased to have found a genuine supplier that can support our business going forward.

Service Manager – Scientific Instrumentation

From first contact with John, he was open, friendly & offered some great advice. Throughout the process he was efficient & diligent with his communication/feedback & having this from a recruiter made the interview/job change process far easier - which is a rare thing! I thoroughly recommend John & his business when you’re looking for a new role/career change

Will McCullough - Area Sales Manager

I am absolutely delighted with my new role and company. I couldn’t have wished to join a better organisation and am very grateful for all the help and support John gave me in making it happen. All the interview advice was invaluable.

National Sales Manager – Chemical manufacturer

TalentTech have presented me with some fantastic opportunities to take my career aspirations forward. They have been dedicated and professional and have really added tremendous value throughout.

Technical Manager – Engineering Services Company

I have been working with recruitment consultancies for many years and have had mixed experiences in terms of quality of service as well as value for money. Working with John has been quite a change. John and I formed a strategic alliance for the recruitment of high-quality sales professionals. This was only possible because of the effort and resources that were put into gaining a comprehensive understanding of our business and the market sectors we operate in. John co-ordinated our recruitment needs and has proved to be highly successful and cost effective. I have no hesitation in recommending John and TalentTech as a preferred supplier and business partner.

HR Director –Building Materials Company

Nick’s experience clearly shows. He just ‘gets it’, quickly understanding our organisational goals and culture and sourcing our latest, exceptional technical candidate. The process was smooth throughout with regular feedback given at each stage. I would highly recommend him.

Engineering Director - OEM Manufacturing Company
