“Over the last few years, Charles has been - and continues to be - an invaluable business partner to me and our firm in the Central region. He has successfully headhunted for a number of key senior (partner/director) roles as well as proactively identifying talented individuals who could be additive to our business. On more than one occasion, we have then gone on to hire those individuals. ” Regional Managing Partner, Top 10, Birmingham

From the get go, he worked on building a relationship with the senior members of the current team so that he could be sure that the candidates were properly informed about the role, team and firm and spent time working with candidates to support and guide them. The result was that we had a good executive search process with great quality engaged people and we filled the role with an excellent practitioner. ” TS Partner / Regional Managing Partner, Top 10, London
“ It was a pleasure working with the team at Adlestrop Consulting. 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

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.   ”
