What our candidates tell us

Michaella placed me in my current role as Head of HR, 20 months ago. She approached me about the role and her manner and style were very winning.  She was professional and friendly, she knew her stuff and gave me the best candidate experience of all the agencies I used.

What I valued most was Michaella’s communication style and frequency.  I also felt I could tell her my concerns (about the pay offer etc) and she understood and worked with me without compromising the integrity of her working relationship with the hiring managers. The benefit I got from using Elliott Barton was a stonking good interview which convinced me she wanted quality rather than numbers. This gave me confidence in my preparation for my actual interviews as there was little they could ask me that she hadn’t! As an HR professional I knew I would approach her in the future to work with me on future vacancies. We’d already built the relationship and the trust.

I would recommend Elliott Barton Recruitment for all the above reasons. They value the candidate and the employer and they work harder and more effectively than other agencies I know to deliver a first-rate service to both. They’re also very nice people and very patient with me when I don’t deliver a first rate experience back!!

“Michaella at Elliott Barton helped me find my current role of Business Trainer 8 months ago. I had no reservations at all about working with Elliott Barton and they found me a great job. I valued most the advice I was given on my interview skills. I was given encouragement, a personal face to face service and prompt response. I felt as though they took very good care of me and made a great effort to ensure it was a good match.”

Its been an absolute pleasure working with Shaun from the moment go! He provides candidates with an expert ear and guidance, along with superb support throughout the whole interviewing process.

Needless to say, the first job we spoke about was the perfect one for me! He understood my needs and found the best employer for me. Not a time waster - just very professional...

Amy Anderson - Senior Account Manager

I had such a wonderful experience working with Shaun. Throughout the entire application and interview process, Shaun was extremely supportive. Even though there was a time difference, I knew that I could reach out to him and would get the support I was seeking very quickly. When I went in front the potential employer I felt extremely confident because of the preparation calls and facetime meetings that Shaun set up.

I would highly recommend Shaun and the Elliot Barton company for assistance in finding the perfect job!
