“I initially spoke to Charles on LinkedIn and he was keen to understand exactly what I was looking for. We discussed opportunities and was put forward to two different firms. Charles gave great insight into both businesses and from discussions prior to the interviews provided really good advice.  It was my first professional career move having spent 9 years at my previous employer straight from university, and as I went through the processes, I spoke to Charles consistently and had both honest and constructive chats about what both opportunities presented. I would recommend Charles to anyone looking for a new role and opportunities. He was coherent throughout the whole process making it seamless and stressless ” Senior Tax Manager, Boutique, Midlands

“Charles has kept in touch with me over the past 10 years or so, during which I remained with one firm so not exactly a recruiter’s dream! Charles was patient and invested the time to get to know me and my career aspirations, offering suggestions and presenting opportunities along the way. He didn’t waste my time with roles that were too speculative or not in line with my ambitions. When the right position came up, Charles hand-held me through the process and towards the end, helped me to negotiate a very attractive package. I’m pleased to say I have no regrets and would wholeheartedly recommend Charles to those contemplating a move. ” M&A Partner, Top 10 Firm, Birmingham
“Charles provided seamless support throughout the entire recruitment process, as well as excellent after care once I was offered the role. Charles’ professionalism, attention to detail, and support was invaluable and I would recommend his services to anyone. ” Business Development Executive, Top 20, London
“ I’d met with Charles on several occasions over the last few years.  Each time I was happy in situ, but he patiently stayed connected and when I was ready to make a move he sprang into action on my behalf with enthusiastic vigour.  This was my first career move using a recruitment consultant.  Charles not only found me my dream role but was on hand to offer friendly advice and guidance throughout the process. ” Head of Capital Allowances, Tax Boutique, Birmingham
“This was my first move within the accountancy profession, and I found Charles to be professional and understanding. Charles took the time to understand the role I was looking for and only contacted me about those which really fit my criteria. I was kept very up to date with on any news with regular contact. I felt very supported with my transition and felt like I could ask any questions whether about the process or in general. ” Assistant Tax Manager, East Midlands, Independent firm
“I have been placed twice by Adlestrop now and Charles would always be my 'go to' for advice and information on the market. Charles promptly arranged several interviews with high quality, well-matched firms and thoroughly prepared me to attend these meetings. Charles truly goes above and beyond in understanding the requirements and priorities of both clients and candidates like I have never seen with another recruiter. I have no hesitation in recommending Charles as the best connected and informed recruiter in the Midlands region. ” Corporate Finance Associate, Corporate Finance Boutique, West Midlands
“Charles contacted me about a few roles over a period of a few years and accepted my rebuttals with good grace as I wasn't looking for a move. The difference I sensed with Charles to some other recruiters was that he was selective in the roles he approached me about. I therefore had no hesitation in working with him when the time came that I was ready to listen to opportunities. Charles was friendly but professional throughout the process, proactive in moving things forward without being too pushy, contactable, willing to listen and talk things through as I wrestled with the decision of whether to move or not. I'm enjoying my new role - thanks Charles for the help in getting there!  ” Senior Tax Consultant, Independent Firm, Midlands
