The client’s perspective
Adam Laird, Director, Homeflow
“I’ve had plenty of experience of dealing with recruitment agencies and on this occasion had two agencies working in parallel on the assignment. Allen Associates stood out from the others, partly because it was obvious that they had taken the time to understand my requirements, had talked to the candidates and selected the ones they thought would be the best fit. The extra care and attention they brought to the recruitment process was much appreciated and ultimately led to Sarah’s successful appointment.”
As a growing company, we were looking to take our finance function in-house and appoint a finance manager. We had advertised online and in the Oxford press and although we received a relatively good response rate, none of the applicants seemed quite right. We were approached by two local recruitment agencies, including Allen Associates, and decided to engage them both to help us with our search.
