Howett Thorpe are my go-to for all finance roles. Your biggest selling point is not doing the hard sell and ensuring that the candidate is suited to the organisation and vice versa. I have been recruiting for decades now and Howett Thorpe is in my top three; I think that is quite impressive.

Human Resources, Educational Charity in Surrey

Howett Thorpe listened to our requirement, sent exact candidates with an overview on each. We were not pushed into hiring someone that didn’t quite fit. We received a great service and are very happy – keep doing what you do as it works really well

Howett Thorpe clearly listened to and understood the requirements of the company. As a piece of process, I thought it went extremely well and was delivered by an efficient organisation which clearly possesses a human touch. No hesitation about using Howett Thorpe again.

CFO, Manufacturing company in Hampshire

Excellent service as usual! Wouldn’t use another agency – Howett Thorpe is the only agency that doesn’t harass me every other week!

Finance Manager, Leisure industry in Surrey

I don’t normally use recruitment companies as I have had many bad experiences. However, Julie has provided an exceptional experience from start to finish. Professional, in-depth research on the candidate and our company to provide a high-quality candidate. Thank you very much, we will certainly be back & recommend you to others.

Director, Site Equip, Hampshire

Great service from Howett Thorpe! As a business we have used them on numerous occasions over the past few years. They are always responsive and understanding of our requirements, placing candidates that are a match both technically as well as culturally. Sam Mercer is professional, personable and consciously checks in post candidate placement to ensure the arrangement is working from both the employer and candidate’s perspective. Would highly recommend!
