They were recommended to me by a colleague, I warmed to them instantly and that gave me the confidence that potential candidates would be happy to engage with them. I've been trying to grow my team for some time with limited success and the team at Adlestrop took the time to get to know me, to understand what I was looking for in a candidate and to present me with a sensible plan of action which ultimately led to me hiring an excellent candidate. I remain grateful to them and would happily recommend their services to others. ” Corporate Tax Partner, Top 10 Firm, South Coast

They are the ‘go to’ person for knowledge of candidates and employers and send candidates who would be right for the business, saving me time. In a way, their approach fits our deal approach – rifle shot rather than scatter gun.”   ” CF partner, Large independent Accountancy firm.
“ Adlestrop are a breath of fresh air. They spent the time finding out exactly what it was we were looking for to fit the role. The quality of candidates and speed of service was impressive and it took away the need for me to spend time sifting CV’s that did not fit the business. If you want the right people first time, then I would highly recommend Adlestrop. ” Managing Director, IT Solutions and Services SME
“ Wouldn’t it be nice you if you found an agency that understood both your business strategy and your philosophy? They would then only put candidates in front of you that would fit with your firm and your people. It would save time all round and you would enjoy the discussions with them. When Adlestrop call me I take them, because I know that they will fit my firms DNA, and because of that I have a hit rate of making offers to their candidates. I can honestly say that Adlestrop have never put me in front of a candidate that I thought was a waste of time.   ”

Adlestrop was able to recommend to us a highly skilled sales individual, and his appointment has proven to be very valuable to our future growth plans. Adlestrop does not mess around with wasting time sending lots of CV's. Adlestrop focusses and waits for the most appropriate and relevant candidate for the role that we are looking for, thus saving our time and effort. I would highly recommend Adlestrop and we would definitely use them again when looking for senior roles ” Audit and Transactions Partner – Top 20 Firm
