Testimonials

Couldn’t have been happier with Steve’s help for a new role. I’ve dealt with a few Rec to Rec’s in the past that weren’t so good, it was great to have someone who truly listened to the kind of role and environment I wanted, as well as interview prep and feedback. Will definitely recommend to anyone I know who’s looking!

February 2017

Gary was amazing! I threw him  a bit of a curveball when I got in touch with him asking for help with a career change, but he went out of his way to help me. On the first day of speaking with me he had already secured me 2 interviews which was a great surprise. He was always just a text or phone call away ready to answer any questions I had, inane or otherwise and took the time to meet with me several times to make sure I was happy with the direction we were taking.  I’d hands down recommend Peritus to anyone because they won’t harass you with irrelevant vacancies and they’re all round just great guys too!

November 2016

Steve was an excellent recruiter from start to finish, meeting with me straight away and really listening to what I wanted from a new position and only talking me through positions that met that criteria. Steve made himself available at all times and even spoke to me at the weekends. Steve was amazing at talking me through my situation and was completely understanding, genuine and non-pushy when I didn’t take the offer through himself which I think is a sign of such a great recruiter! I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Steve to any level recruiter looking for something new.

October 2016

Can highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to make a change in their career! Really listened to what I wanted and was very knowledgeable about the companies that he works with. Was really helpful throughout the interview process and made sure I was fully prepared before each one – always available to speak to as well and never made me feel like it was any hassle!! Can’t thank him enough 🙂

October 2016

Gary is one of the very few people I have met that has made the customer and client experience exceptional.

I have known Gary for over 10 years and during this time he has always supported my needs as a client and provided quality candidates that stand out from most R2R agencies. There is always a targeted approach and not just a job board sifting process. There is a real ‘value add’ to what Peritus provide.

From a candidate perspective Gary has gone over and beyond expectation with more than regular contact, candidate briefings and consultative advise at a senior level. He was able to target suitable opportunities while maintaining a confidential brief.

Gary is clearly passionate about the service he and his team deliver at all levels and is one of the most dedicated and hardworking people I know who operates with a smart work ethic. I rely on Gary to be an ‘expert’ in his field and knowledgeable with advise and market information.

I would highly recommend Gary as someone that has stand out delivery and over exceeds expectation. Thank you for all your support so far and may it long continue.

June 2016

Joe kept in touch with me after his initial approach and was always friendly and professional. He never sent me details of roles to earn a fast fee and only presented one very specific opportunity that suited my needs and knowledge base very well. He managed he interview process and made the effort to meet me personally. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone passive or active in the market.

March 2016

A great guy who listened to what I was looking for, respected feedback I gave on the potential new companies, and didn’t try to put me in front of companies which didn’t meet the requirements I had in mind. Dean finds the right balance in his role with regular updates without a constant barrage of messages and calls like other rec2recs. Would certainly recommend to anybody looking for a new role.

February 2016

I have worked in the recruitment industry for many years. The key to being a success, is listening and understanding the needs of others. I am very pleased to say, that I met someone, who is particularly skilled in both. Dave placed myself in my current role as engineering manager and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, who is interested in furthering their career, within the recruitment industry

December 2015

Steve was an excellent recruiter from start to finish, meeting with me straight away and really listening to what I wanted from a new position and only talking me through positions that met that criteria. Steve made himself available at all times and even spoke to me at the weekends. Steve was amazing at talking me through my situation and was completely understanding, genuine and non-pushy even when I didn’t take the offer through himself which I think is a sign of such a great recruiter! I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Steve to any level recruiter looking for something new and would be the only person I would trust my next career move to.

November 2015

Dave helped to find a role that suited my personal circumstances and matched perfectly my expectations around role and company culture.
I was enjoying my role within a global recruitment agency in Manchester City Centre, but had always had an appetite to work closer to home due to the needs of my young family.
I initially spoke with Dave to establish if he could help, from the outset he really took the time to get to know me and understand what was important. He actually came back with an opportunity within an agency I had always admired, but without his market knowledge and great relationship with this particular client I would have never known was available.
The approach Dave took was refreshing open and always honest, in my opinion it certainly sets him apart from other rec to recs in the North West market

October 2015

Dean takes his time to consider what it is you are actually looking for. He caters for what are your drivers in regards to looking for a role and ensures that your time isn’t wasted when seeing different recruiters. Would definitely recommend Dean to anyone looking for a new role

October 2015

I’ve known Dean since I left my first role. I intended on finding an account management role and staying within Sales, however, after a phone call from Dean I was confident that this guy could get me the job I really wanted.
I must admit… I made Dean work for the placement with me. As always, his knowledge of the industry is exceptional and his ability to breakdown a person’s strengths and match that to a sector and company is very good.
I would definitely recommend Dean as your choice Rec2Rec.

October 2015

Well what can I say about Dean?
I have dealt with a number of R2R consultants and never really found them knowledgeable within the sectors I have experience in. Dean arranged my first interview the morning after we met, I then went on to accept the offer the same day!  Whether you are a client or a candidate I would highly recommend Dean for your next recruitment role.

September 2015

I approached Dean whilst looking to relocate to Manchester and wanted to seize the opportunity to secure a new position. Having spent a year in recruitment, it was extremely important to me that I made the right move into an agency that supported ongoing training and development, offered a great working environment; and where I was surrounded by like-minded people. Dean listened to all of the key traits I was looking for, and his immediate suggestion was the company I am now with. Dean never missed a call, worked flexibly and sensitively around the fact I worked office hours and delivered on every promise that he made. I was not bombarded with a number of options for agencies and not pigeonholed into one specific box that he needed to fill; I was given informed and educated guidance on my next move. I accepted my current role and it is one of the best career moves I have made. I joined the right business to give me what I was looking for, and am grateful for all of Dean’s assistance in helping me join the perfect business

September 2015

“I only had two vacancies on my team and both positions were filled very quickly with very good candidates from Joe! He understood exactly what I was looking for and both candidates fitted the bill perfectly. I felt I was kept in the loop regarding their movements at every stage and updated on any developments with the candidates (i.e. other interviews/offers).
I would genuinely recommend Joe very highly to anyone interested in his services.”

August 2015

Joe helped me find my first role as a recruiter. From start to finish he was there and was very supportive and helpful. I couldn’t recommend him enough to those who are seeking their next move.

August 2015

I cannot recommend Joe highly enough and would recommend anyone considering a change in their recruitment career to have a chat with him. He is a friendly, diligent professional who took the time to understand what I was looking for in my next role before arranging interviews with companies who were perfectly matched to my requirements. If nothing else, Joe is a brilliant example of how a good recruitment consultant should do their job – have a chat and at the very least you’ll learn a thing or two!

July 2015

Dean was a pleasure to work with whilst helping me find my knew role. He was highly professional and kept me up to date throughout the entire process. I would recommend Dean to anyone looking to start or progress in their recruitment career.

July 2015

Having recently left London and looking to move to Manchester, Dean was quick to help me find my ideal role. He took time out to understand what it was I was looking for, helped me with every step of the process and was a really great support both in my move into a new role, and my move to a new city whilst remaining professional throughout. Working with Dean was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to my future with my new firm, and recommending him to anyone that would be looking to go into recruitment.

May 2015

Dean was extremely enthusiastic and extremely professional. The first interview he arranged for me was successful, which reflects the standard of his work.

April 2015

I write this recommendation for Dean Duignan of Peritus Consultants. We worked together during 2014 when I was looking to expand my fashion Head Office team in Manchester. He took time to understand our needs and worked to a specialist brief to source us the perfect person – communication was excellent throughout and his friendly, efficient and honest approach was very refreshing! I would certainly work with Dean again in the future.

February 2015

A really friendly but honest approach, Dave actually listened to what I was looking for and met all my role expectations, I was left with a difficult decision to make as I would have loved to work everywhere he sent me, a nice problem to have! Dave made the process enjoyable and I felt like he actually cared about my move being right and not the placement itself, a pleasure to work with and 100% happy I made the move! I have and would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for the ‘right’ career move.

February 2015

For anyone thinking of making that change in their recruitment career I can highly recommend you speak with Steve from Peritus. He takes the time to actually listen to your frustrations and concerns and gives you genuine options to consider. He truly represents everything that is good about recruitment, spends time actually getting to understand what you are looking for and works with some of the best clients in Manchester so you will not be short of a great career choice!

February 2015

Dean is a great recruiter, He listened well to what I was looking for and he was able to direct me into other areas that I had not thought of myself. He was able to book me into 3 interviews within a couple of days of meeting him. I was offered a position within 2 weeks of meeting him.
He was able to meet all my expectations. A top Recruiter with great contacts and would recommend him to anyone that is looking for employment in the Recruiting Industry.

February 2015

Dean was fantastic throughout my job search, he acknowledged and listened to the type of opportunity I was looking for and successfully catered to this. Following our initial meeting he was able to provide me with several options, which led to the position I am in today as an Infrastructure Researcher at Scantec Personnel.

February 2015

Steve is a very professional recruiter who both listens and delivers. He is also extremely knowledgeable on the recruitment market and is able to give expert advice. If you are a recruiter looking for a new job, call Steve today.

January 2015

Steve is an excellent recruiter with the ability to deliver great results. Having been in the industry for a while, I knew exactly what role I wanted along with the right kind of company ethos.
Steve did not try push me into looking at roles or organisations that I wouldn’t be interested in. Unlike other rec2rec’s who would call about irrelevant roles or to pick up leads.
Steve has a very professional manner, excellent listening skills and builds a great rapport with his candidates. A refreshing change to find in a recruitment market these days.

January 2015

Dean got me my current role at Rullion IT Plus. He found me on LinkedIn and before I knew it I had interviews at two large company’s in Manchester!
He listened to what I was looking for, gave me advice, prepared me for interviews and kept in contact once I secured a role through him. He was always going the extra mile, even to keeping in contact when he was ill to recommend accommodation as I was relocating for my new role. I would recommend him to anyone and I strive to give the level of service he gave to me to all my own future candidates.

November 2014

Dean helped me find my current role in recruitment. He listened to everything I said with regards to the type of job I was looking for and make sure he found me the perfect one! I would highly recommend Dean to anyone looking for their next challenging career move.

November 2014

Gary and his team are the best rec2rec agency I have used.

Gary was always available and his advice was based on my interests and not his. This is very refreshing and I would recommend any recruiters looking for a new role to engage with Gary and his team.

November 2014

Gary was highly recommended to me by a friend and did not disappoint. Right from our first interaction Gary insisted on meeting face to face and had me walking out of the office believing that I could conquer the world let alone break into recruitment.
He helped me to identify what I needed to put in my CV right down to prep for my interviews (and boy did he send me to a lot of interviews).

All in all Gary is a fantastic recruiter and the majority of the time I felt like i was just chatting with an old friend. I’ve been at my new job for over a month now and I absolutely love it. Thanks for your hard work Gary.

October 2014

Hi Gary

Just thought I’d drop you a direct e-mail to express my thanks to both Dean and your wonderful company on landing me my job with **** literally 6 days after I’d finished uni!

Dean is absolutely fantastic, both on a professional and personal level. He has time for his candidates no matter what time of day, gets the interviews he promises he will get and really makes you feel prepared and confident ahead of an interview.
I was going through interviews during probably one of the most difficult stages of my life, and had to juggle exams and family issues alongside researching and meeting different companies, which even now I’m not quite sure how I did it! I am thoroughly grateful for all the support he gave me, and highly commend him for the work that he does.

I wish him, yourself and the team all the best in the future, and hope you continue to expand as a company and put massive smiles on people’s faces!

June 2014

Dave sourced my new role on my behalf and throughout the process, from start to finish, provided continued support and guidance for the duration of the entire interview process.
Nothing was too much trouble, Dave sees “going the extra mile” as standard practice, I am extremely appreciative of his efforts and should the need arise, I would only use Dave in the future! Outstanding !

June 2014

Dave was instrumental in helping me to obtain my first proper role in recruitment. He offered invaluable advice and coached me along the way to help me understand the world of recruitment, and what would be the perfect sector and environment for me.
He was extremely professional, but also incredibly friendly and I both enjoyed and appreciated my conversations with him. His persistence and interest in helping me to secure my perfect role really paid off, and it took less than 2 weeks for him to find me my ideal job!
I would recommend his services to all for his professionalism, knowledge and personable approach to his work.

June 2014

I highly recommend Gary. He is a fantastic recruiter and was the only one that insisted on meeting with me … listening to all my needs and aspirations and genuinely cared about placing me in the right position!

He went the extra mile contacting me outside of working hours answering any concerns I had and I feel he is a genuine honest person who offered me excellent advice and guidance throughout the whole process of my job search.

He placed me within 1 week of meeting with him in the perfect job ideal location, prospects, exactly what I’d been seeking!

I can honestly say I now wouldn’t use any other recruiter and just hope he never leaves the industry! ha ha. Thanks Gary you did an amazing job! 🙂

June 2014

Steve is brilliant, an excellent recruiter. Listened to me and delivered. I am more than happy to recommend him due to his professional, care and attention to making sure it’s not just about the short term, but longevity.
If you are looking for a new opportunity, Steve is the person to speak with. I cannot thank him and Peritus enough.

April 2014

Dean is an excellent recruiter, he placed me in my first real job not long after I graduated. I had spoken to a lot of recruiters who had made empty promises, Dean on the other hand stuck to his word and made it his mission to find me the perfect career. He walked me through the entire interview process and ensured that I was prepared and confident which resulted in me receiving an offer from the first interview I had!

March 2014

Couldn’t recommend Dean enough. Unlike other recruiters I had worked with he got me the interviews he said he would, called when he said he would and gave me feedback promptly. I am now waiting to start a new career in recruitment with a brilliant company! Thank you very much Dean!

March 2014

If you want a new recruitment role then speak to Steve.
– honest
– knows his market
– always available but won’t hassle you
…and a genuinely nice guy.
After 18 years with one company he was the only R2R consultant that listened to what I wanted in a new role/company.

March 2014

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dave Farrell of Peritus Consultants. Dave has expert knowledge and insight of the recruitment industry and an impressive portfolio of client and candidate relationships to back this up. He takes time to get to know you and your requirements and offers impartial advice and guidance every step of the way. I would have no hesitation in assigning Dave to represent me in the future whether it be to recruit for my own team or to manage my job search – he’s the best!

March 2014

Dean is a fantastic recruiter and it has been a pleasure to work with him. Tirelessly working, often after normal working hours, in order to help me achieve my goals and become a recruiter myself. He has educated and inspired me to go on and be successful.

March 2014

I worked with Dave and Pertius last year once my previous role had come to a end. I found Dave to be different from other rec to rec people as he actually listened to what it was I wanted from my next move and only got me in-front of the right companies with the right type of role.
I found his manner to be friendly, attentive and not pushy. I would highly recommend Dave and Peritus to anyone who is looking for their next move within the recruitment industry.

March 2014

I didn’t think it was possible for a Recruitment Consultant to convice me to look outside of Prime Time, many have tried, all had failed. Dave didn’t! Not only did Dave talk sense, he was simplistic in approach, was only interested in what was important, found out all about me and made a match, a very good match. He was supportive and informative through the process and I am now looking forward to working at a great company that I wouldn’t ever have spoken to if not for Dave. A likeable person, a proper consultant and someone I couldn’t thank enough. High, high recommendations from me.
Thank you.

March 2014

Sam was diligent, attentive and hardworking when sourcing a new career opportunity for me, from the initial contact right through to the acceptance of a role she had lined up.

January 2014

Having used a number of Rec 2 Rec agents unsuccessfully for the first time (late 2013) Steve was able to place me with a company that suited my career path. Steve is great at listening and understanding what you want from a new role, I found the way he works makes the whole process very easy and beneficial to you and your work environment.
HIGHLY RECOMENDED.

January 2014

Dave was a fantastic consultant to deal with when seeking my next appointment. Dave listened to exactly what I was looking for in terms of role , responsibility and culture fit.
He only suggested companies and positions that I would genuinely be interested in and was able to handle any objections and questions I had in a professional and honest manner. Dave seemed to be genuinely passionate about ensuring he found the right role for me rather than seeing me as a fee.
Comes highly recommended to Senior Recruitment professionals.

August 2013

When I found myself on the job market due to redundancy I didnt know what to do, I had so many calls / emails from lots of different Rec2Recs and from direct Recruiters my head was spinning.

Gary was recommended to me by a colleague and Im so glad he was. He made the effort to meet me on the day we first spoke and by the next afternoon I had an interview with a company which he had identified as a perfect fit for my long list of criteria (and the list was LONG!) and as it turns out that was the role I accepted!

Gary is everything you need, and want in a recruiter and more. Great market knowledge, efficient, does what he promises, great support throughout and to top it all off he is a nice guy! Thanks again Gary!

June 2013

Having come from a rec2rec background many years ago, when I was thinking about moving I was sceptical about using one.

Gary came off a recommendation from a colleague so thought I’d give him a ring! Gary and Peritus from the off set were professional, friendly and approachable!

Gary himself met me personally and really got to know what I wanted in my next move! That in itself made me always want to answer his calls. He set me up with companies which after interview, I never thought were a waste of my time or theirs. He had an honest approach with both and it was so worthwhile.

Even when I had offers he met me again and went through them even though they weren’t all through Peritus, he genuinely didn’t mind and wanted me to make the best decision for me! I really cannot thank him enough, and have no doubt recommending him and Peritus.

May 2013

Gary is not your typical Rec 2 Rec, he takes the time to get to know what you want and which company would suit you best. Rec 2 Rec’s have a reputation for just sending you on any interview to any client, Gary does not do this he takes the time to understand which company and role suits you best.
I have one word to describe Gary – Legend!
I would highly recommend him to any company looking to recruit consultants or any consultants looking for their next move.

April 2013

Dave was the first person that approached me about a move into recruitment. He was very thorough and detailed in every process we went through from first interview to offer. He has great personal skills, really listened to what I wanted and gave me the opportunity to build a career in recruitment. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a future in recruitment.

April 2013

Dave did an excellent and professional job presenting me with several exciting opportunities. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking for recruitment opportunities in the North West.

April 2013

I dealt with many Rec2Rec consultants while looking for my next recruitment career move and Dave certainly stood out as the best. He was very confident of his ability to get me my dream job and he certainly didn’t dissapoint.

He took time to find out about what my requirements were, what I could and couldn’t do and above all what I actually wanted to do!

Dave is a very responsive individual you ask a question and he will get you the answer.
I would most definitely recommend Dave Farrell to any recruiter looking at their next career move.

April 2013

I found Dave to be a highly professional, personable and reliable recruiter, who provided me with sound advice when I was searching for a new job role. He took the time to meet with me, and went above and beyond time and again to help me secure my new position. I would highly recommend Dave to any potential candidate or client as he genuinely seems to be passionate and knowledgeable within the recruitment sector.

March 2013

Dave was the first person I spoke to when looking for a career in recruitment. He listened to everything I wanted, what I was looking for and found me a fantastic role. He was very in depth and supportive throughout the recruitment process. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking to move into recruitment.

March 2013,

Simply put Gary looks to put the right people into the right jobs. He’s clearly not just after someone staying in post just long enough to justify his fee, and that sets him apart from the large number of rec to recs who keep trying to fit round people into square jobs, the “no, I think it would be good for you, let me tell you about the money again” brigade.

March 2013

Gary took the time to to travel and meet me personally which was invaluable for both of us. I gave him a specific brief about what I wanted and certainly didn’t make it easy for him. He delivered immediately and came back to me within 24 hours to discuss potential employers and within the week he found me the perfect position. Throughout the time we worked together he made sure that I was fully prepared and had all the information I needed. He was flexible and made himself available to me whenever required. The best thing about Gary is that he clearly actually cares about his candidates and clients – a rarity in recruitment. If you want a job in recruitment I would send you straight to Gary every time!

March 2013

Gary took the time to meet with me and listen to everything I was looking for in a new company. He listened attentively to everything I was saying and provided realistic and honest solutions to these – whilst empathising with everything I said. I am 100% confident that Gary understood me as a person and what I was looking for in my next career move and therefore he managed to match me up with a handful of suitable companies – one of which I work for at present. I’ve worked with a couple of ‘Rec2Rec’s’ in my time and Gary is the best in the NW – he takes the time for a personable, honest and professional approach; learns about each candidate (in detail) and their individual concerns, rather than just seeing them as a ‘quick sell.’ He was always available for a chat/support and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a successful career in recruitment… in fact, I recommended him to a friend recently, who’s now happily placed in a new company… with a turnaround of less than a fortnight.

March 2013

I was headhunted by Dave regarding a new exciting opportunity in North Wales. The position was perfect for me as it was closer to home, had amazing prospects for career development along with a very competitive package for the company.
Dave maintained contact with me throughout the whole process along with his colleague Gary assisting me with a couple of contract elements that weren’t as straight forward as I’d expected.
Overall Peritus Recruitment has been fantastic and even now I’ve started my new role the consistency of contact and help is still on going.

Thank you very much for all your help guys!

September 2013

Gary has always been a true professional, his relationship building and networking abilities are second to none and just as importantly he does what he says he is going too. Gary is reliable and cares, very rare commodities in recruitment and I am sure this has added to his continued success within the industry.

November 2012

It was Ryan who originally approached me from Peritus, he endeavoured to understand my background and experience and took the time to find out what I am looking for in my career.  He then set me on the right track to find the job I wanted, thanks for your help Ryan.

November 2012

Ryan is highly personable and bought into very easily. He delivers exactly what he promises and is a pleasure to work with. His expertise in the market is profound and produces quality results. Highly recommended.

Dave really takes time out to understand the needs of the business. He listens to the requirements and always delivers. He has an honest approach, which I find helps to build that working relationship and he has a natural energy to get the job done.

October 2012

Gary is a focused, knowledgeable and passionate professional who is always willing to go the extra mile. He is a great communicator and ensures his candidates and clients’ needs are kept a priority at all times. His drive and enthusiasm is an inspiration to his team. Gary is an absolute pleasure to work with and without hesitation I would highly recommend him.

October 2012

I would like to thank Dave for finding me my new role. He is a fantastic recruiter, he listened to everything I said and went out and found me what I was looking for. Nothing was a problem, he was very honest and supportive throughout the whole process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave.

I have no hesitation is recommending Gary. He worked very close with me in finding me my next position and demonstrated an excellent and honest rec to rec service. He listened to what I was looking for, and whilst going out on his search he kept me well updated with where he was up to and who he was approaching throughout the process.

September 2012

I dealt with Ryan over opportunities that I was interested in within the Recruitment sector, of which his invaluable guidance and support contributed highly to securing my career. He was consistent in his approachable, personable and hardworking nature in regards to what I required from my employment. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone seeking an opportunity in the Recruitment sector.

August 2012

Gary has assisted me a couple of times in finding a new role. He is a great recruiter and really has consultants best interests at heart. He offered me a number of different opportunities and was honest and supportive throughout the process. I would never use anyone else in regards to a Rec2Rec as I am always impressed with how Gary conducts himself. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

May 2012

If you are looking for a new job in recruitment then your first call should be to Gary Cox. His consultative and informative approach is second to none. With so many options available to you in recruitment, it can be very difficult to choose which company will be best suited to your needs. Gary gives excellent and honest advice with out the usual predictable sales techniques often associated with rec2rec.

April 2012

Throughout my dealings with Ryan I have found him to represent his and our business with the utmost professionalism. He is honest in his approach to our needs and has been supportive and informative with clear communication throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any potential Recruiter or organisation looking to recruit as he brings a high degree of integrity, works creatively and has the clear ability to keep to a brief and fulfil a clients requirements.

March 2012

I spoke to Ryan in October 2011 about potential opportunities within the construction recruitment industry, he proved himself to be very hardworking and helpful. It became very clear that he had fantastic knowledge of the Build, Civil Engineering, Utilities, Infrastructure and Construction Recruitment Industry and the companies within this sector. I would happily recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a new role.

November 2011

I writing a recommendation for Gary because he has delivered results. He knows his market inside out and I choose to work with him because he doesn’t waste peoples time; he will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. A hard working individual, passionate about his business, down to earth person who you can enjoy doing business with. As either an employer or a job seeker in recruitment industry, I am very happy to recommend Gary.

August 2011

I have know Gary for almost 4 months thanks to him contacting myself through LinkedIn. He’s an excellent point of contact who listens to what you are looking for and then comes back with opportunities. He is very passionate about his work and is willing to go that extra mile for his candidates to succeed and for his clients to receive the best consultants. I would have no issues to recommend Gary and would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his efforts. Thanks Gary

June 2011

In a truly sharp end of the marketplace where expectations are incredibly high and client liaison can be as challenging as it gets, XL Recruitment’s past experience and continuing relationship with Gary Cox is now stronger than ever. After almost 6 years of working closely together, he has consistently managed to deliver against our stringent remit for supplying high quality and well sourced Sales & Marketing & IT Recruitment Consultants (of all levels from Resourcer through to Senior Management) and their ability to succeed where others have failed, coupled with excellent market knowledge makes them the Business Partner you turn to first and foremost before looking at any other Rec-to-Rec Suppliers.

May 2011

I have known Gary for a number of years since he contacted me when I was a Trainee Consultant at Pertemps Recruitment Partnership. Gary has since succesfully placed me at two companies – BTG Recruitment Limited in Manchester and more recently Korus Group in Chester.

April 2011

Gary already came highly recommended but his industry knowledge and professional conduct have really set him aside. What I was expecting to be a stressful and drawn out process has gone without a hitch and I’m very pleased with the results.
If you’re looking for a job or looking to hire recruitment professionals at any level, I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services.

March 2011

I’ve recently used Gary to find a recruitment position in the North West. It has to be said that from the outset Gary has been 100% courteous, honest and proactive and has really gone out of his way, not only to understand exactly what I was looking for, but to maintain constant contact throughout the whole process and offer impartial advice at each and every stage.

Gary is everything you want in a Recruitment Consultant – straight talking, knowledgeable and delivers on his promises. Gary always takes the time to listen and understand your needs, and this together with his excellent knowledge of the local market means I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gary from both a Client and Candidate perspective.

Gary is a hard working dedicated individual with a lot of energy and he gets things done. A very positive outlook he is trustworthy and loyal, with a very likeable personality – a very good colleague to have.” I have worked with Gary on numerous recruitment projects and his candidate and client relationship skills are exceptional, he uses a consultative approach to get the best result. Gary is an asset to the company and I would highly recommend him to anyone whether you are a client looking to obtain the best personnel or a candidate looking to develop your career.
