“It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Marshall Moore who I have worked with for over 10 years and engaged in an exclusivity contract aimed at various roles for approximately 4 years.
The biggest distinguishing factor of Marshall Moore is their high level of personal service and excellent understanding of my brief which is serviced with a great deal of professionalism and courteousness. I am always very busy and I appreciate the time the company takes to understand our business/industry and specific needs which is relayed to prospective applicants. Marshall Moore, over the years, has become more diverse in their candidate base and placement of roles within our industry which has helped to further develop our relationship.
I would recommend Marshall Moore without hesitation to anyone looking for permanent and temporary staff. I believe the smaller more personalised consultancy has worked extremely well for us and I have also been particularly impressed by the strong network of candidates on offer, the tenacity of Marshall Moore and again, the high level of personalised service. Each Recruitment Consultant clearly has a passion for what they are doing which emanates from the senior members throughout team.
We will continue to utilise Marshall Moore’s recruitment services as our consultancy of choice and trust we will enjoy a lasting relationship for many years”
