  • 100% of our shortlisted candidates result in interviews

The shortlist of candidates was superb and really enabled us to appoint the best person for the role, as well as food for thought for other roles. All along this process, as well as the other roles they have supported with, they haven’t just been the recruiters, they operated as an extension of my team, completely trusted to get it done. Their knowledge, expertise and approach to the brief was fantastic. 
I would have no hesitation recommending them to any business and will definitely be coming back to them in the future.

TESTIMONIAL: People Director, Global Research Consultancy

“I have worked with Search By SRG on a number of roles now. Keith was very empathetic with the brief, helping to round it off, working through the likely scenarios and multiple options, with the aid of Hannah Mason.  Throughout they kept me informed of progress, formally on a weekly basis but also informally when needed. They were confident enough to challenge my thinking, throw into the mix candidates that may not have met the brief but that actually brought something new and interesting to the table. The shortlist of candidates was superb and really enabled us to appoint the best person for the role, as well as food for thought for other roles. I would have no hesitation recommending them to any business and will definitely be coming back to them in the future”.
