We deliver what we promise

  • "Critical Selection has previously provided me with search and selection support whilst expanding my national account team and during that process he provided a great shortlist of suitable candidates in a very timely manner, from this list I was able to select the right person."
  • "I would be happy to refer you. I have always found you to be professional and to have integrity. You always tell us when you cannot supply candidates rather than wasting our time with unsuitable candidates. I have never had any trouble contacting you when needed and if I have left a message you have always responded quickly. You have a good understanding of our business and our people and supply candidates that are a good fit for us."
  • "Our company has worked closely with Critical Selection now for 5 years and we enjoy a strong, supportive relationship. The team at Critical respond very quickly to our recruitment needs and make sure they have a clear understanding of the role profile and the type of candidate we are seeking. They take time to understand that meticulously. Many of our key, senior roles have been successfully filled by Critical Selection and I have the utmost confidence in their sustained delivery of high quality service and candidates. "
  • "Simply put, Critical Selection is very good. Professional, easy to work with and honest. The easiest and best recruitment company I have had the pleasure to work with.Contacting me only about potential right roles to enhance my career, I fully recommend their approach, integrity and communication skills, ensuring that I knew where I was throughout the recruitment process."
  • "I have worked with Critical Selection on a number of assignments over the past few years. They excel in fully understanding the brief, this combined with their extensive knowledge of the marketplace enables them to put forward a strong panel of candidates. Critical Selection are open and honest and give good feedback about the role, benefits packages and the likelihood of success. This approach has resulted in them placing numerous candidates into vacancies I have held over the years."
  • "From our long standing relationship with Critical Selection over the past 10 years I would thoroughly recommend Critical Selection to any company."
  • "I have worked with many head hunting companies and recruitment agencies over my time and Critical Selection stands out as operating above the norm."
  • "We originally worked with Critical Selection to place individuals in positions in the Automotive Finance sector, in a range of roles such as Regional Sales Managers in both Corporate Finance for our Fleet Company Alphabet and in our Retail Finance Company.  Geographically Critical Selection could cover all our requirements and the quality of candidates were strong both in the selection processes but also in their roles.  The retention of these candidates still today,  I think represents that Critical Selection also gets the right cultural fit."
  • "Critical Selection have a thorough process which produces the right results, they are flexible but quality driven. In part it is down to the relationships they form,  which they work hard to sustain and even when not recruiting they are part of our business. Though I would add they are not obtrusive and strike the balance well between delivering without high levels of involvement from us the Client. They are like an extension to your own team."
