I highly recommend Path Recruitment. They have really listened to my needs and have supported me throughout my application process from the moment I registered my cv with them to me successfully securing a position as a hire controller with a key player in the plant hire industry. I cannot speak highly enough of Rob Madden who has provided me with a professional, efficient and friendly service of the highest standard and has always been on the other end of the telephone to offer advice and support along the way, even making contact with me after I had started my new role to ensure that I was ok and I was settling into my new career path.

I have used Path Recruitment since 2006 for various positions from Hire Managers in branch or Director positions in the central team.
Ian and his team have always provided candidates that meet the brief having carried out extensive research into both the role and the individual.
They always conduct themselves professionally, confidentially and with both us and the candidate in mind.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Path recruitment in your search for the right candidate.
Kind regards

Our new member of staff is doing great, we are very impressed with him so far so thank you for your help. Hopefully we have the same success in the future.

I would personally like to thank you for all your efforts in helping me start my new career path.
Even though I initially withdrew my application to start work with another company. Two weeks later I made one call to you to inform you that my circumstances changed and I had made a mistake by not following through with my application. In a window of three weeks I have gone through a two stage interview and secured a position as a territory account manager which meets all of my criteria.
You and Path Recruitment in my opinion are a perfect partner for any company looking to fulfill their recruitment needs as your professionalism and understanding needs clearly is above any other agency I have personally come across. I wish you all the best for the future and wanted to thank you again.
