I've been working with Aidan for a number of years and he's always been supporting our business with valuable advice and top quality candidates. He is a professional who takes pride in his work and really cares about people. Aidan is my first point of contact when I need to recruit for my team and he never lets me down!
Finacial Controller
Aidan always sought after and put me forward for roles best suited to my requirements. Every role he sought out for me resulted in an invitation to interview. He always kept me up to date at every stage, always providing support and feedback both before and after interviews. What really stood out for me was the confident assurance he provided in searching out my next role and he delivered! I have no hesitation in recommending Aidan - he is undeniably, one of the best recruitment consultants I’ve had the pleasure of working with!
Senior Financial Accountant
In any team you need integrity, honesty and passion. Aidan has that in spades. I have been lucky enough to work with Aidan for many years. Each and every time I put the phone down from Aidan I smile and move onto other issues, as I know all is in hand. He understands, is honest and most importantly is a business partner in what we try and achieve.
Finance Director

Aidan found me a contracting role early on during the pandemic, I could not recommend him more. The service I received was exceptional- I felt like Aidan went above and beyond to make sure both myself and my employer were happy from start to finish. I found Aidan to be professional, personable and honest and just a great person to have dealings with.
