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

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

Julie Mott and Laura before her have always just got us. They know the type of person that works and that doesn’t. Julie is a very real individual, and I enjoy working with her when the opportunities arise.

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!

Finance Manager, Leisure industry in Surrey

It was reassuring that Toby took the time to truly understand our requirements and recruited perfectly against these.
