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.

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.

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 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.

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.
