“ The biggest difference between Adlestrop and other recruitment firms is I truly believe they wanted what was best for me as an individual. They were not pushy and took time to get to know me in order to help me understand what the next step in my career should be. This way they were able to find roles that would suit me personally as well as professionally. I would recommend them to others. ” Corporate Finance Executive, Independent Firm

“ Charles is a recruiter with a difference! Adlestrop Consuling helped me in securing my CFO role through his collaborative, yet professional approach. My job search came with some key challenges comprising multiple changes which included a new sector, different organization size as well as a new location. Unlike many recruiters, Adlestrop Consulting focuses on building a strong relationship with their candidates, which helps formulating a good understanding of candidate and their needs, providing a sound platform for appropriate role identification. As part of my quest for a new opportunity, Charles helped identifying the right opportunity, based on my skills and experience and more importantly aligned to the needs of my new organization. It has been a pleasure working with Charles and Adlestrop Consulting. I would highly recommend Charles for his approach, which brings a good balance of servicing his candidate and client needs. ” Placement of Chief Financial Officer, Engineering Consultancy, Midlands
“ Charles approached me regarding a specific role at a time that I wasn't considering a move and he was thankfully very sensitive to that fact. He was very accommodating in giving his time to meet me and speak with me and, given the profile of the role, in ensuring that it was something that could work well for both parties. We spoke on a number of occasions through the process and Charles' advice, delivered in a friendly yet professional manner, I considered to be a very valuable part of me preparing myself for a significant career move. I would certainly recommend using Charles both as an employer looking for a candidate as well as a candidate looking for a new role. Thank you Charles! ” Financial Director, VC backed Engineering Consultancy, Midlands

“ Adlestrop were outstanding at helping me to secure an exciting role. I have been talking with them regularly for a couple of years and find their approach professional, appropriate and therefore fairly unique in the market. The strength of their relationship with this client was key to me being able to enter the recruitment process, secure an interview and ultimately join the team. Their knowledge of the business helped, but what particularly stood out was the efforts they made and time they spent to support me in my transition and ensure everything ran smoothly. I felt well looked after. The most important thing therefore is that Adlestrop present a service you feel you can trust. I'd highly recommend speaking with them. ” Globalisation Senior Analyst, Automotive Manufacturer, Midlands

“ Adlestrop had been in contact for a number of years and their approach was unique compared to other recruiters which is why as soon as I began to contemplate a career move, they were the first and only recruiter I contacted. Adlestrop were very knowledgeable about the local firms and were able to offer a lot of helpful advice on what possible steps my career could take and which firms would provide this. Having not written a CV or attended an interview for many years, I was unsure about how to approach this. Adlestrop were there to provide advice and support. They were always contactable by email, phone and text, and would always respond quickly. Adlestrop were also around to provide advice when job offers were received and when it came to resigning from my current position. Adlestrop have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend them to anyone.  ” Audit Senior, Top 15, Midlands
