“We have been delighted with Ian and his team for the way they handled our latest vacancy for a technical support analyst. Having tried many agencies who simply flood you with CV’s, Digital Execs took the time to fully understand us and our vacancy and then filter through candidates, so we only spoke to the most suitable, which finally led to our getting the best possible candidate for the position. I would have no hesitation recommending Digital Execs for any technical vacancies.” – North London IT.

 

 

Sales Professional, London

“I was on the hunt for a new opportunity that would be suitable for a sales professional of my calibre, I had been searching for a number of weeks being sent Job descriptions that were not relevant to my experience or skill set.

Ian approached me with an opportunity that suited me perfectly, from the outset of the conversation it was clear that Ian had taken the time to read my CV and understood what benefits my skill set and experience could bring to his clients company.

Ian maintained absolute transparency throughout the process and was always approachable with any questions or concerns I had. Ian made what could have been a potentially difficult period in my life stress free and exiting.”

 

Mailboxes, Etc, Luton

“I wasn’t totally clear in my mind exactly what I wanted from a new member of staff but after discussion with Ian he helped me to clarify what I needed and wrote the job spec. / advert.He only presented top quality candidates for me to appraise and interview which kept the time I spent looking to an absolute minimum. All for a reasonable fee. Great service, I would definitely recommend.”

 

A Plan Insurance

“It has been a pleasure to deal with a firm that I would class as ‘old school’ recruiters that clearly listen to my requirements and only forward CV’s of candidates that fit the bill.

You took the time to meet my candidate early in the morning prior to his interview with me to ensure he would turn up and was appropriately turned out, This is a service that only a local firm such as yours can offer and is one of the many deficiencies the new breed of internet based recruitment firms have.

My first point of call whenever I need to fill a position and I will have absolute confidence recommending your services to others and in fact I already have.” – Martin Lazell

 

Kinesis

“Ian was not only helpful in my job search, but also in interviews, after being asked how my previous experiences led to my choice to apply for certain jobs.

During that discussion, Ian examined my CV and gave me great advice on how to improve it, making the timings and content more specific. He was then extremely proactive in searching for potential opportunities, making calls on my behalf regarding specific vacancies, which provided me with key contacts at recruitment agencies more specific to my desired employment area.

All in all, Ian showed great enthusiasm, which instilled within me a tremendous sense of pro-activity and optimism, and he showed a genuine care in my own success, all of which I found to be hugely important.

I know that mum was very grateful to Ian for his help. In fact, she spoke very highly of him to her friend Carolyn McCall, who happens to be the CEO of Easy Jet. From this interaction Dame Carolyn McCall was so impressed by what she heard about Ian, that he was personally invited over for a meeting regarding recruitment. Although, Easy Jet do their own internal recruitment process, there is no doubt that Ian would be given professional consideration if they sourced externally.

Thank you, Ian, for all your help it is something that will not be forgotten.” – Chris and Maria Moore

 

Utility Warehouse

“Ian impressed me from the outset with his approachability and obvious expertise, and more specifically with his offer of assistance to my son Chris on his job search upon graduation last summer.

Ian was generous with his time and followed up a very positive and encouraging meeting with a schedule of specific actions for Chris to take to help him in his research, build his networks and to attract the attention of his chosen industry and employers. From the meeting Ian was able to make a very good assessment of Chris’s abilities and character and the recruitment advice he provided was excellent. From that springboard Chris gained clarity on his options, selected a specific graduate trainee route, set about finding a suitable position within a chosen company and secured their offer. He joins them in August.

Ian’s assessments, insight and expert guidance was invaluable in that process and I want to thank him for offering his expertise in this way. Ian truly understands what employers are looking for in quality and skilled personnel who fit the role and the company; I highly recommend Digital Execs to any organisation wanting to recruit the very best people for their business.” – Anthea Cowen

 

Klarna

“Ian approached me at a time where I was struggling to make headway in this recruitment through my own contacts. Ian presented Digital Execs to me and I realised that he provided a service that could be of significant value to me if he could deliver on his strategy. I agreed to give Ian a shot at these 2 important hires, which were based in our HQ in Stockholm – something that as making this hiring quite a challenge.

Ian took a brief for each of the two vacancies, we exchanged a few emails and calls to fine tune the Search and within a few days I started to receive profiles from passive candidates that Ian had identified, headhunted and presented the Klarna opportunities to.

Ian updated me frequently, he managed the process really well, kept both candidate and myself updated at each stage. He showed resilience in the face of 2 difficult roles to fill, and did not give up. What surprised me was how well Ian was able to penetrate the Swedish market and I quite quickly hired my Sourcing Specialist, someone I’m confident will develop into a recruitment rockstar. The more senior role was more challenging as senior internal recruitment talent is rare in Sweden. Ultimately Ian found me a great solution, headhunting a senior talent from the UK tech market and convincing them in the opportunity with Klarna. I’m very happy with the service, I recommend Ian as a valuable partner in the search for internal recruitment talent, and will use his services again as and when required.” – Malcolm Kemp, Director Talent Acquisition
