Top tips for candidates

Friendly, professional, prompt responses and if Alex was not available, I always had another contact. Alex discussed candidates and did not push for an interview if we felt the candidate did not fit our requirements

Practice Manager, Chartered Accountants in Surrey

Julie was always available when needed and the timings were good. The candidates sent were suitable for our requirements. If I needed help with recruitment again, I would not hesitate to work with Howett Thorpe.

Talent Acquisition Specialist, Global technology company in Surrey

100% – again another well-matched candidate. The whole accounts department now consists of HT candidates.

Practice Manager, Legal company in Surrey

Excellent service – this was a textbook exercise in how to recruit for a client properly.

Group Finance Director, Architects in Surrey

Great quality CVs and a pleasure to work with. Would definitely use Howett Thorpe again.

Financial Controller, Beverages company in Surrey

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