I have worked with Chris for nearly 20 years. He consistently represents high quality candidates - and many of my most successful recruits over the years have come from Chris. He is always straightforward and personable to deal with – I'd have no hesitation in recommending him to candidates and recruiters.

“I have worked with Chris Hayes for a number of years in order to help recruit into our team.  I have always found him professional and knowledgeable about the practice market and will therefore continue to use as well as recommend his services.“

David Munton
Managing Partner
Grant Thornton

“Chris is a straight talking individual who listens to the requirements of his clients rather than telling them what they don't want to hear.”

“I was using a number of recruitment websites prior to being placed by yourself and overall was very unhappy with both the positions they matched me to and any feedback. Meeting you not only got me a position, but was a much more positive and focused experience that felt very hands on and specific which made such a difference; to be honest, it restored my faith in recruitment placements.  I just wish that some of the other so-called professionals were as diligent and practical as you have been.”

Tony Murphy
Finance Manager

“I think you differentiate yourself with the quality of the candidates you engage with (rather than playing the volume game). With regard to the project we worked together on, I found it very easy to develop a relationship with you and was impressed with your focus and tenacity in following up to a successful conclusion.”

International Bank

“Chris is a true credit to the recruitment sector. He is one of few that really understands his candidates and clients requirements to provide the right person for the job, unlike a majority of recruitment consultants that try and fill a post for a fee without getting to know the candidate's real talent and experience.”

Martin Aston
Yorkshire Bank

"Having known Chris for a number of years I have always been impressed with his professional style.  Chris is very considered in his approach to assignments, which not only instils confidence but also ends in positive results.  It is for these reasons and his ability to listen to his clients that I would not hesitate in using Chris in the future".

Mark Day
EY Corporate Finance

“Chris is a positive, well-connected guy who has gone out of his way to try and secure the best candidates for our business.”

Clive Bawden
Business Development and Finance Director

Chris is a great guy. He truly does listen to your requirements... and then sets out to achieve them patiently, persistently and professionally..... looking to do the best for the interests of both sides. He's more a friend than a recruitment consultant. Very few like him.

Finance Director
£150m turnover manufacturing company.

I have dealt with Chris both looking for a job and looking for staff.  I have never felt pressured and always felt that Chris genuinely seeks to put the right people forward for the right jobs.  I would definitely work with Chris again.
