Client Testimonials

  • I am very grateful to Nick and his team at Context for supporting a number of recent hires for me this year. As my main point of contact, he took the time and effort to fully understand the nature of my team and the wider business we are in. Further to that though, he understood the importance that we place on the culture of the company and took that into consideration before submitting any candidates for consideration. This thorough approach ensured that we only had quality candidates to choose from which was a refreshing change! As a result, I would recommend Context without any hesitation

  • Atech Support have been working with Jon and Context Recruitment for the past 18 months and without sounding cliché I have never worked with recruitment company like them. They have spent time getting to know us as an organisation and the people who make our company what it is. They take great detail in only sending over candidates who they truly believe not only fit the skill sets we are looking for but also the culture of our organisation. They have placed more successful candidates with us than any other agency we have partnered with, and this success is down to their diligent work ethic.

  • Nick and the team at Context have been fantastic on the permanent recruitment campaigns they have worked for Documation. Context listen closely to our requirements, and have developed an excellent understanding of our business and what we typically look for in a successful candidate. This thorough approach has helped ensure that Context have consistently put quality individuals in front of us on each of the campaigns they have been involved in. I look forward to our continued partnership on future campaigns.

  • From the outset Nick and his team have been communicative, professional and personable. Their depth of knowledge, ability to understand requirements and deliver against them is very impressive. Context Recruitment are clearly working very hard to stand out from the crowd. I highly recommend them as a recruitment provider.

  • I have worked with Context Recruitment on numerous occasions over the years. Dealing with agencies everyday I can honestly say they are a cut above the rest. They have a style and manner about them that few have. They go out of their way to understand requirements, only present the very best candidates and are as authentic and professional as they come. I trust them 100% and am looking forward to being able to work with them again imminently.

  • Nick and the guys at Context have proven themselves to be very adept at finding unusually shaped needles in very large haystacks. Our relationship started as a result of a speculative conversation and has been very beneficial. Always positive and determined, even with roles that prove more difficult to fill. Context have taken the time to gain a good understanding of our culture and values which makes the recruitment a more productive, less time consuming process. I am happy to recommend Nick and his team.

  • I've worked with Context Recruitment for a number of years now. They constantly deliver high quality candidates and have a pretty unique ability to listen to the subtle qualities required of a role and reflect them well in the options presented. One further point that appeals strongly to me is that I feel very comfortable scoping out a role, knowing they will give me honest advice, and not dress it up in a way that would make a sale more likely. Five stars....

  • Context Recruitment have been professional from the outset and are quite different from many within their industry. They offer a highly consultative, professional and thorough approach to recruitment and their passion and knowledge of UK rail is clear. Highly recommended.

  • Context Recruitment provide a very personal service to any brand and they have expert knowledge in their area. They understand the requirement, deliver to tight deadlines and are all round honest, professional guys. I would highly recommend their services.

    Chloe Winterhalter
  • I work with a lot of external recruiters and sadly the overall responsiveness, quality of candidates and real value they bring is often questionable. Context Recruitment however restored my faith. They took the time to understand our business and were able to screen candidates sufficiently well that it was rare that we felt the need to reject any CV they put forward. Clear communication and a super fast turn-around on roles meant that we usually had an interview lined up through Context before the other agencies had even shared an initial set of CVs. Can’t recommend enough

  • Nick is the consummate recruitment professional. I remember quite vividly the first time he contacted me over a year ago about an opportunity when I was a candidate. We have been in contact since then. Over the last six months, I have engaged with Nick as a client and found his approach refreshing. He is a personable individual, provided sound advice when required, challenged the status quo when appropriate and always kept me updated on progress of our recruitment campaign. It was a pleasure to work with Nick (and Jon) and wish them both every success. I would not hesitate recommending them

  • Jon has provided recruitment services to me personally and as a hiring manager prior to Context Recruitment, and they continue to do so since it’s creation. In that time Context have been able to identify quality candidates that in many cases we’ve been able to offer roles to, particularly in the area of information security and network security. Jon’s personal, professional approach and commitment to finding the right candidates, often where there are hard to find skill sets involved has been key. We continue to use Context Recruitment and I am happy to recommend their services

  • I worked with Nick during my time at the Financial Ombudsman Service and would highly recommend him as a Recruitment Consultant. Despite our ever-changing requirements, Nick really took the time to understand us as an organisation. It was this, along with his knowledge of the industry that meant Nick consistently provided high quality candidates with the right experience and fit. It was a pleasure to work with someone who really understood our requirements and was able to deliver against that criteria.

  • Nick and his team have recently helped us to successfully recruit for a permanent position within our team as we were looking to fill the vacancy of a Financial Modeller with very strong IT skills. The process has been lengthy predominantly because of the niche set of skills required for this position but Nick and his team have been critical in sending us relevant candidate details to review and expedited the process significantly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Context Recruitment for similar type placements and we would happily be working again with them in the future.

  • I had the pleasure to deal with Simon at Context-IT while I was looking for a new job, Simon had a call with me and after a brief chat about my background and location I received the great news that he found me a place which perfectly matched my experience and background, during the interview process I have been fully up to date on what the employer expected from me which made the interview preparation much easier, If you are looking for a new challenge in IT/Telecoms I highly recommend Context-IT.

  • I would like to let you know the whole recruitment process, and your communication from the initial point of discussing the vacancy, to arranging an interview, helping me prepare for it, and even chasing an update as to how the interview went is credit to your work ethic. Your ability to make me feel like you wanted me to get this position as oppose to making it feel like you are just doing your job is a great approach. And it put me in a position where I did not want to let you down either. You have also been very easy to get hold of, as and when needed.

  • Context Recruitment has to be one of my favourite agencies to work with. From the honesty and feedback provided to the calls throughout the placement to check on progress and see how I am. We all know Recruitment gets a hard time at the moment but I am happy to have worked with an agency who actually cares after the placement. I will always reach out to Context Recruitment as one of my first calls if I am in need of a role.

  • Sophie has been a pleasure to work with and really helped me from start to finish finding my new job. I probably wouldnt have even considered the job until she really explained just how fantastic the firm is and took the time to listen to and answer the many questions I had. I highly recommend working with her. Thanks again Sophie you are a star!

  • Jon has been absolutely amazing since our first interaction and his professional and personable demeanour is a credit to himself and Context. He has been extremely helpful from start to finish, helping me secure an amazing contract, advising on the best options and putting me in touch with experts across the field. I cannot recommend Jon and Context Recruitment, highly enough. If you want the best, then you would be doing yourself a disservice not to work with Jon and Context.

This elevated Nick and Context Recruitment far beyond any other agencies I've dealt with previously. Good luck and best wishes Nick.

  • Nick is one of the finest recruiters that I have ever worked with. He has proven to be of high-integrity and has specialist knowledge in placing senior programme and project managers. He has won my trust, and respect, by demonstrating his commitment to quality and exemplary communication with everyone involved in the process. Nick stands out as a true professional in a sector where you can often encounter rogues. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a recruiter to both companies and transitioning professionals alike.

  • Simon has been very professional throughout the process, and kept me updated on the process throughout, which is something I found frustrating in the past working with other recruiters. He was very honest throughout the process in terms of feedback and advice. He is very responsive and prompt in replying to any query. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a new role, or hiring new talent. Thank you again Simon!
