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

“ Adlestrop have been extremely helpful in allowing me to progress my career, and have successfully found me a role that will be extremely helpful in developing my career. The process began with a face to face meeting in which I was asked about where I saw my career ending up, and how I wanted to get there. Adlestrop were extremely knowledgeable about the market, and were able to quickly give me a realistic target for the roles I could achieve. Adlestrop were able to get me interviews at several firms that matched my expectations, eventually finding me the right one. ” Corporate Finance Executive, Top 10 Firm, Midlands
“ Adlestrop Consulting are truly first class. From our first meeting, they made it clear that they wanted to get to know me as an individual, whilst providing me with excellent advice for my career, as opposed to force-feeding me with their current mandates and losing interest if nothing matched. Their refreshing approach led me to dealing with Adlestrop on an exclusive basis; no one else came close. Adlestrop took the time to really understand my experience and qualifications, rather than take the usual ACA-one-size-fits-all approach I had previously come across from many so-called consultants. They are highly professional advisors first and foremost, who are remarkably knowledgeable about the corporate finance labour market, across London and the Regions. Although my move into industry did not happen through Adlestrop (as it happened directly), I cannot recommend highly enough. If you are thinking about your next career move or looking for a knowledgeable, patient sounding board, don’t think about contacting Adlestrop. Just do it. ” Finance Director, Industry, East of England

Adlestrop took a genuine interest in me and my career aspirations giving well-structured and exclusive career guidance allowing me to focus on the best path possible. We made some small but important changes to my CV before putting in front of potential employers. Adlestrop are very well networked an introduced me to key decision makers within leading accountancy firms due to their strong relationships with them. Throughout the whole process I was reassured on any uncertainties and Adlestrop were always at the end of the phone to talk things over, it was only a few weeks before I was offered my dream job.    ”
