I have only recently started working with Brand Recruitment and have been extremely pleased with the fast, friendly and efficient service that I have received. Louise Ashford-Hodges provided me with an excellent candidate who fully met our vacancy requirements. I look forward to a long and successful partnership between our companies and would recommend Brand Recruitment.
Mothercare, Recruitment Manager
We have been using Brand Recruitment for nearly two years now and we haven't looked back. We are a large graphic design studio that, through ongoing growth, has had frequent recruitment requirements across offline and online creative. Unlike our experience with some other agencies, we genuinely feel that Brand take the time to filter candidates to our exacting requirements, yet still manage to get a substantial amount of candidates to us for review. They are incredibly receptive to feedback and now we trust them implicitly to know exactly what we're after in terms of skill sets and personality. Louise is always a pleasure to deal with and she takes the hassle out of the recruitment process! We have successfully recruited several creative team members through Brand and there is no doubt we will continue to use them as our main recruitment agency.
Bourne Leisure, Studio Manager
We have used Brand Recruitment for a number of years and they have become one of our primary sources of marketing candidates. They stand apart from their competitors, as our consultant, Ursula, has ensured that she fully understands our culture and always provides a professional, cheerful service, sending only carefully screened candidates. Even when a CV doesn’t sell a person well enough, we have taken their advice and seen the recommended candidates and have not been disappointed with the results! Brand is always my first port of call.

I have now placed two Marketing fixed term contract positions with Alex Carter of Brand Recruitment. Having not recruited within Marketing for a number of years, and never within the Automotive sector, I didn't have any known recruitment agency contacts and had no idea whether Alex would be able to deliver the candidates that I needed, but he did.The first vacancy was offered within 3.5 weeks, and the second within 6 weeks. Having a limited knowledge of Marketing myself I found it hard to explain the key responsibilities within the role however, due to his knowledge of Marketing, Alex was able to gather what he needed from the job description and was willing to contact our senior Marketing managers for a further brief. Alex only sent over the CV's of candidates who he felt may meet our criteria and from reading them I could understand his rationale. Additionally Alex would also ask for initial feedback to ensure that he had understood the brief and was following the right track.
Overall I have found Alex's service prompt, supportive and reliable and would not hestitate to recommend him and the team at Brand.

I have recently used Dominic at Brand to recruit 2 roles, I found his attitude and enthusiasm second to none and he was also able to find the perfect candidates for the role very quickly and efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend Dominic’s services to anyone.
20:20, Financial Controller
Having worked with Brand recruitment on a number of marketing vacancies, I have found them to be responsive, knowledgeable and only send us candidates that fully fit the brief that they have been given. Candidates have always been well briefed on the vacancies and have a good understanding of the Group.

Due to the demand of our growing marketing team, we have used Brand Recruitment on a handful of occasions to provide us with marketing professionals. Our consultant, Louise understood our needs and succeeded in providing some high quality CVs. She was very good at keeping in touch and also keeping candidates informed and motivated throughout the recruitment process. I would be more than happy to work with Louise and Brand again in the future, as I am very confident she will deliver again on our expectations.
Butchers Pet Care, HR Manager
As a Cambridge based organisation, we recently used Brand Recruitment’s services to help us source a key role within our marketing department. Being a local marketing and creative specialist, they provided us with a high calibre of candidates to interview where we appointed a talented professional to join our team. We were impressed with the efficiency of the service and look forward to working with them in the future.
Bell Worldwide, Recruitment Assistant
I have had the pleasure of working with Brand Recruitment since September 2008 whilst responsible for recruitment at SCA, but also previously with my former company.
Ursula Colman and Alex Carter, together with the wider team at Brand, have remained focused on the business requirements of SCA during our vacancy processes. Our Marketing recruitment crosses sectors to encompass commercial & healthcare B2B, and retail FMCG, and Brand have been outstanding in their approach to candidate selection and management.
They take time to understand our brief, and work with us as a partner to deliver exceptional results. The success ratio of hires from Brand is testament to their hard work and commitment to SCA.
SCA Hygiene Products UK Ltd, HR Advisor
We had never come across the company before but felt that we might have better luck with an agency focusing on candidates in the Eastern region. I called and spoke to Aisling who, instead of taking the initial brief over the phone followed by an emailed job description, suggested that she came and saw me the following day so that she could understand the company and our requirements properly.
At our first and only meeting Aisling displayed excellent interpersonal skills and a very quick grasp of the type of person we were looking for even though she has had no direct experience working in an advertising agency. Her personal presentation and mature conduct gave me confidence that of all the headhunters I had spoken with she would work hard to find the right candidates.
At our meeting I had requested that I should not be sent CVs willy nilly, regardless of whether the candidate had appropriate experience or not so it was with considerable pleasure that I read the first or second CV from Aisling and found what seemed on paper to be the perfect candidate. We took her on at first interview as an interim and she has proved to be one of the best employees we have ever had.
AL Marketing, Managing Director
When writing a testimonial for Alex I can only base my thoughts on the experience I’ve had when dealing with other recruitment consultants. I would have to say the Alex has been a pleasure to work with and in fact the best I’ve worked with. He has always understood the types of candidates we need for each role and has not wasted our time sending irrelevant, under qualified CVs. The candidates have always been of a very high standard. Alex also understands that we’re busy people so keeps his level of contact at just the right level, which is important as often consultants can over contact. I’m sure we’ll work with Alex again in the future and look forward to it.
TUI, eCRM Manager
Having used Brand to help us fill a number of marketing vacancies over recent times, we have found that they have supplied us with a strong selection of candidates that have been a good fit against the skills, experience and personal attributes that we've been looking for on each occasion.
The Silver Spoon Company, HR Manager
Since using Brand we have been impressed with the efficiency of service. Our consultant listens to our brief, asks for clarification if necessary and then sends over candidates that closely match our requirements. The candidates sent over first time have always been the ones we ask to interview, regardless of whether we wait for other possibilities from another source. The consultants understand their candidates, understand the industry and it’s quirks, and most importantly they understand the clients requirements. We have found this attentive service results in the speediest and most effective matches. We look forward to working with them again in the future for our marketing roles.

I have recently used Brand Recruitment for a number of vacancies within Scott Bader UK. I have worked with Joby on positions such as Distributed Products Manager and Product Manager Composite Sales.
With both roles I received high calibre candidates, and both roles were appointed through Brand Recruitment.
On a day to day basis I deal with a lot of employment agencies, and at Scott Bader, we have a Preferred Supplier List we use when recruiting for new vacancies. However, following a conversation with Joby, due to the excellent customer service and way of working portrayed by Brand, we decided to work outside of the PSL, and we have been very satisfied with the service provided by Brand Recruitment, and will definitely use their services again.
Scott Bader, European HR Business Partner
I have worked with Brand Recruitment on a number of our Marketing opportunities and have always found that they provide a comprehensive search and selection process. Candidates’ details are always well presented and all candidates are well briefed on the role the have been put forward for.
