"I have been working with the Ashdown Group for about 10 weeks now whilst trying to recruit 4 positions. I felt that the Ashdown Group representatives were very professional in the way we interacted, and also had a good understanding of the fact that I have a day job which can demand almost all of my time. While we spoke on the phone a little, most of the time we communicated by e-mail.
The best thing I found about working with the Ashdown Group was the quality of the candidates CV's and the speed in which they were supplied, the candidates were normally of an excellent caliber and incredibly well suited to the job role. The level of service supplied by the Ashdown Group was excellent, I always had a clear understanding of where I was with a particular candidate. This is not something I find easy to say as my past experiences of working with recruitment agencies have left me dreading the prospect of further recruitment, but I was able to build a good working relationship with my point of contact in the Ashdown Group and felt that he had a clear understanding of what I expected.The agent did not impose on my working day but merely kept me informed of changes in a particular role and or the status of a candidates interview or response to an interview.
I will definitely be using the Ashdown Group for future recruitment requirements and have recommended the agency to my colleagues within the core parts of the business."
