  • "The advice I received during the initial meeting stage was excellent- extremely thorough, detailed and relevant.  I was given support in freshening up my CV, in particular we were able to work together to expand my key achievement and profile section which was extremely helpful.  I felt John really took the time to listen to my experience and requirements …"

    Financial Accountant (FCCA) Public Sector
  • "John stood out from the other recruiters I have worked with.  He asked insightful questions about my career to date and my motivations to leave which led us to a very detailed conversation around the options open to me and considerations around my next step.  I was expecting a slow recruitment process because my requirements were niche and specific – John swiftly arranged appropriate meetings for me and I secured a new position very soon after our initial conversations. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for advice within the accountancy and finance sector."

  • "John has previously recruited an Assistant Financial Controller within one of our Groups subsidiary businesses.  His attention to detail and customer services throughout the selection process was second to none.  His knowledge of the finance market meant he was able to give us clear guidance and advice around candidate availability and package benchmarking...  Highly recommend."

    Finance Manager SME Engineering Group
  • "We worked with John to recruit a Financial Controller into our business.  He was extremely helpful throughout the process – initially even supporting us to produce a detailed job specification following our first meeting.  The pace at which he was able to provide a relevant group of potential candidates was impressive and he kept in regular contact throughout ensuring we could move swiftly.  As the business grows we expect to have further recruitment needs in our accounts team and we would return to John without hesitation."

Thanks!"

    Assistant Accountant - Privately owned SME
  • Every now and then someone or something comes along and really stands out from the crowd. In my experience as both a client and candidate, in recruitment that doesn’t happen too often. What makes ARG stand out for me? Passion & commitment, to both candidates and clients, coupled with a no-nonsense approach. I never once felt like I was one of a hundred candidates that John was talking to. His professional, yet personal approach is the perfect recruitment recipe; he was able to ascertain very quickly what I was looking for in terms of both role and working environment and less than a month later I was accepting an offer! What really stood out throughout the recruitment process though was the personal care, consideration and attention paid to MY job search; John really took the time to get to know ME, and as such, there were no mass mailings with irrelevant jobs, no phone calls trying to persuade me to take up interim roles or interview for roles that weren’t suitable because he was under pressure to fill them, or because HE thought they were a good opportunity for me – which just demonstrates his commitment to not only finding the right roles for his candidates, but the right candidates for his clients. I can’t thank John enough for his help in finding the right role for me and as such, I have absolutely zero hesitation in recommending ARG to both candidates and clients – I’m confident you won’t be disappointed, I certainly wasn’t.
