What our clients will tell you

MD Events Group (Event Management Pharma)

Elliott Barton Recruitment have proved to be a great partner to MD Events over the last couple of years. They have sourced staff for us globally, senior to junior, across lots of our diverse businesses. What was amazing was the approach, even though they had no prior knowledge of us or our industry, they have made a huge difference to us and the people we have recruited.

We really like the effort that is focussed on selecting the right candidates, the thoroughness of the review process, the understanding of what we need to know and how they reflect our culture and values.

They have been an extension of our team!

William Reed Business Media (Media and Events)

I have been working in recruitment for 5 years and have been working in-house with William Reed for the last year and a half. Elliott Barton were an already established recruitment agency that we were using.

Elliott Barton have been successful in helping us with numerous placements, predominantly within media sales which is an area that we struggle. Kelly and Shaun have a lot of integrity which is rare in recruitment and they provide an honest and reliable service. They offer regular updates on their progress with roles and give us feedback. 

I would recommend Elliott Barton as a recruitment agency to use as they offer a solid, professional service and they provide top quality candidates.

Checkatrade  (Consumer Services)

Elliott Barton Recruitment have offered and continue to offer Checkatrade a first class recruitment service.

Shaun and Michaella have successfully recruited and filled a number of roles for us, whether they were straight forward or complex vacancies, time and time again Elliott Barton came up trumps with the strongest fit candidates.

Sales, IT, HR, Customer Service, Advisor through to Management, we now use Elliott Barton as a preferred supplier to help us maintain and build what we think is an exceptionally strong talent pool.

Initially we were hesitant, we didn’t know the team that well and they didn’t seem to have the experience of our sector. Giving them a chance was a great decision. Certainly for me, I have been extremely happy with the recruitment of 2 key leadership team posts. Arguably the best placements EB have made.

Both recruits have now been with the business just over a year and are flying, adding huge value to Checkatrade, they have been key to the 35% growth this year. Shaun and Michaella were integral to this as previously we had struggled to find and secure the quality personnel ourselves or through any other consultants who apparently knew our business and market better!

The team offer a very personable service, I find Shaun and Michaella to be very caring, they are great listeners, have an amazing customer centric approach and have great knowledge across all functional departments. Couple this with their drive, energy and genuine desire to know you and your business so they can represent you best, is we feel their winning formula.

I see these guys as a partner, they get our brand, they get our culture, they get our values. They simply get it and us, which is why we get great people from them.

Navtech Inc (Aviation)

In my position as Senior Director, Sales and Account Management, at Navtech Inc, the team at Elliott Barton Recruitment were fundamental in filling the key position of Sales Director for the EMEA region. Elliott Barton were diligent in the upstream candidate selection, which subsequently meant that the candidates presented were all at a level where they were of interest to the business.

This meant valuable time was saved at my end by not having to sift through vast quantities of CVs or conducting lengthy interviews, where in either case the success rate would have been low. In addition, Elliott Barton exceeded my expectations by finding a successful candidate with extensive international business development experience, and then subsequently supported the international contracting process. Elliott Barton provided an exceptional service and I highly recommend them.
