Testimonials

A selection of Candidate testimonials:

“I was not particularly looking for a move but Charles‘ relaxed style suited me as we together went on a journey through a number of discussions which allowed me to understand what was important for me and what I really value in my career.   Charles was patient in getting to know me. His knowledge of the local market is really strong and he has some great relationships and contacts.  This was my first move since graduating and I was not sure what to expect.  Not only was Charles supportive through the decision-making process but also throughout my notice period right up to starting the new role.  I’ve really appreciated the support from Charles and look forward to an exciting journey ahead.   ” Tax Director, Top 10 Firm, Birmingham
“ I first worked with Charles Magill in 2015 when I was looking to move back into the accountancy field after a long spell in the legal sector. Working together over a period of months he helped me shape exactly what I was looking for and then ultimately enabled me to secure this role. Since then we have maintained contact, not in a "recruiter/candidate" relationship, but more of a career development advisor and critical friend as my role has developed. Charles' input and advice has genuinely helped as I have continued my own development journey within the profession. Charles and his team have also kept me appraised of candidates in the market place as I have been recruiting my own team. ” Tax Partner, Top 20, Midlands
“ Charles provided an excellent and very professional service on behalf of Adlestrop. When I initially spoke to them I knew what sort of direction I wanted to go in but was unsure how to find the best opportunity for my career.   Adlestrop guided me through the whole recruitment process and made sure they found the right job role to enable me to further my career. They met with me to find out about what I had done so far and what I wanted to do in the future. Before I met potential employers, Adlestrop made sure I was prepared and were always at the end of the phone if I needed any further help.   I am really pleased with the job that Adlestrop found for me and I am looking forward to starting it next month. I would highly recommend Adlestrop and would definitely use them again if I wanted a change of job in the future. ” Tax Trainee, Boutique Firm, Birmingham
