L Brooker
“I dealt with two recruiters Kathryn and William. Kathryn secured me my current placement, she was really helpful and had a good understanding of what I was after”

J Jelfs
“Julia was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. I was already signed up to a couple of local agencies before her call and I was not planning on speaking to anyone else, but she was very enthusiastic and professional, sold the job role to me and convinced me that it was the right role for me. She maintained contact and gave me feedback throughout the interview process and found me a job. Couldn’t ask for anything more.”

S Precey
“Cheryl was great, I have already recommended her services. Many thanks!”

D Warwick
“Of the recruitment agencies I have experienced, Howett Thorpe is the most responsive and professional and I have developed a good working relationship with over time. You were my recommendation as a recruiter as well as a candidate.”

S Hollamby
“Thank you once again Richard Latham, for your support and assistance in securing my next job. I can’t explain how thankful I am to you – I will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a role. Keep doing what you are doing Richard … you are great at your job!”

T Grogan
“The experience I have had with Howett Thorpe is second to none. I have to express my sincere gratitude to the recruitment consultant Anthony Evans who contacted me directly to discuss a different role initially. We had an in depth conversation about my needs and he was really helpful in finding a role that would support my goals and aspirations. Throughout the entire process he provided advice and a personalised service. I would highly recommend Howett Thorpe as an agency and specifically Anthony.”

G Potts
“Laura Underhill was amazing and made me feel at ease the whole way through the whole interview process to getting the job.  She really is one in a million.”

D Cox
“Laura Underhill was extremely helpful and understood my aspirations and the type of role I was looking for excellently. I would happily recommend Laura and Howett Thorpe’s services to colleagues and friends.”

J Winder
“Richard was really good at keeping me up to date and informed with everything. 100% will use again.”

T Brooker
“Laura was fantastic in finding me superb roles.”

M Murrells
“Always friendly and willing to help. I always spoke directly to Claire Martin and would recommend her to anyone.”

H Ellis
“Claire Martin was great. Took the time to get to know me initially and what I was looking for. As the role I wanted was part time, obviously there wasn’t going to be lots of choice, but Claire always took time to call me and keep in touch even if there wasn’t an interview lined up. So many other agencies, once they heard I wanted part time, I never heard from them again once I had registered. Very friendly, professional approach. I have since recommended her to several people also looking for new roles.”

K Mckean
“Excellent all-round service which other agencies could learn from!”

C Richardson
“I cannot fault the quality of service I received from Howett Thorpe. In the very short time I was with you I had 2 very promising interviews, 1 of which I took and am very happy. I would recommend your company with pleasure.”

J East
“I would just like to say a massive thank you for all of the support you have given me over the last few years.  It has been an amazing experience working with Howett Thorpe.  

A contractor could not ask for any more than the support, career advice and friendly service you have given me. I will miss working with all of you!!

Moving forward I will ensure in my new role that Howett Thorpe will be the sole selected supplier in the financial recruitment process as I know the service you will offer me will be to the highest standard. ”

R Chuter

A Marrufo
“I cannot fault any of the team at Howett Thorpe. I always felt the team made a real effort to really get to know me and present me to clients honestly and positively.”

A Jarczyk
“Very good communication level with the agent, was always emailing everything rather than calling me at work, so that I could respond in the convenient time. Was updating me on everything on time.”

J Lavelle
“Kathryn Lee – the conversation we had at the outset proved invaluable, Kathryn really understood what I was looking for and how my job needed to fit in with my children. Thank you!”

E Drzymala
