"AB Consultancy provided me with a fantastic and professional service and managed to provide me with candidates for a role we thought was impossible to fill."

HR Manager – Disney Stores

"AB Consultancy supported us in finding a fantastic candidate for a very difficult senior role that at times seemed impossible to find the right person, the calibre and delivery of our expectations for the right person was spot on and the whole process was managed through the highest professionalism."

HR Manager – Three

"Sarah has provided the most comprehensive, professional and effective recruitment experience I have encountered. She has recruited a wide range of positions at all levels within my business, where her attention to detail and ability to understand exactly the right personalities as well as capabilities required have led to a number of excellent hires. This combined with a high level of personal attention means you feel looked after and informed throughout."

Managing Director – CFL

"AB Consultancy is our supplier of choice for specific positions of management status. Having had cause to throw the consultancy a recruitment requirement at short notice on more than one occasion, we are safe in the knowledge that the quality of candidates presented is not compromised and on each occasion they rise to the challenge with assurance and style.”

HR Manager – Strada

"Alison has been a great Consultant Had it not been for her fantastic communication throughout the interview process, I can say for certain I may not of been
offered the position. She made sure I had everythinng I needed and was always on hand if I was unsure of anything.
Poonam is an absolute credit to your team and has demonstrated she is a very enthusiastic and totally
professional consultant who cares about people’s future careers. Thank you Poonam for
helping me reach a new start to my career."

Assistant Manager – The Entertainer

“Alison made it her business to get to know our business and to understand what makes us tick. Her attention to detail is second to none and all three of the applicants she put forward for our role were exceptionally strong candidates who had been thoroughly briefed and well prepared. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Alison and her team to any business wishing to fill a senior management position and have every confidence that AB Consultancy will come up trumps next time we are recruiting at senior level”.

Assistant Manager – The Entertainer

"Having had the pleasure in working with AB Consultancy for a number of years, I have always find them to be, personable but professional in their approach. They have worked hard to understand the brand and the skills & behaviours we look for in our Management recruitment, they seek feedback from us as the client on how they are performing and will look for ways to further improve the service they provide, and as such have had great success in placing with us some great Managers."

Resourcing Manager – Pizza Hut

"I am so thankful for everything that Alison and her team has done for me.
The support and encouragement I have been met with has simply been outstanding!"

Assistant Manager – The Entertainer

"I recently worked with Sarah, where she placed me in a new role. I can honestly say that her priority is to make sure the right candidate is placed in the right role, with equal emphasis placed on both sides of the process. Sarah's attention to detail is excellent, along with the knowledge of the client she represents. I really felt that nothing was too much trouble, and that she was always acting in my best interests. Sarah is very personable, with no awkward or forced conversations. I hope that in my new role I may still work with her in some capacity."

IT Manager – CFL
