  • Satisfied Skills Bench Client Clients
    Satisfied Skills Bench Client

    The candidate provided by ECS was an excellent fit for our client. He more than matched the required skill set, which exceeded our client’s expectations on numerous visits to the client site. The client originally requested the candidate to scope the work required and was so impressed with his skills that they requested him to complete the project. He regularly participated in conference calls on our behalf and kept us fully up-to-date with the progress of the project. All the paperwork provided (during scope and sign off) was of a very high standard and was extremely detailed. I wouldn’t hesitate in using ECS, and the candidate provided, again.

    Contractors Work as an Extention of our Clients

    Over the past two years I have worked with ECS on desktop deployments at Turning Point and the University of East Anglia, I have found the pre and post sales service to be highly efficient and have never felt “out of the loop” or “in the dark”, the individuals placed on site have always worked effectively as an extension of DTP and I would have no issues in placing them in any one of my customers.

  • A Valued and Strategic Relationship Clients
    A Valued and Strategic Relationship

    Chris I would like to say where the relationship is between Ricoh and ECS. In the last 12 months the relationship has really blossomed and we at Ricoh have seen what a valued and strategic relationship can look like with a resourcing partner who really knows their stuff, took time to know us and now work side by side with our SME and sales teams. We are seeing significant growth in business because of it, so long may it last, my thanks to you and your staff for the service we are getting.

    Thank you so much. I am so please I cannot put my feelings into words! Thank you for all your support, I have worked with a number of agencies over the years, both personally and through business, and you have been absolutely fantastic throughout.

  • A Rare Find in Recruitment Candidates
    A Rare Find in Recruitment

    David is a rare find in the current recruitment agent market. Prepared to actually talk to you on the phone and keep you updated as to what is happening with your applications. I have badgered David to bits over a recent application, which resulted in a successful offer in place thanks to his help, and he has never once gotten tired of these constant questions, or "are we nearly there yet" annoyances! I would go back to David in a flash should I find myself on the market again (though hopefully not for a few years yet!!), or to help me recruit where necessary, and I believe anybody should consider using David to find them staff, or as an agent to find them work...

  • Reliable, Responsive and Efficient Candidates
    Reliable, Responsive and Efficient

    I learned quickly that I could rely on my contact (Marko) to respond quickly and efficiently to queries and keep me up to speed on progress. Marko went over the top in making sure I had clear and relevant information at each stage and provided a number of useful hints and tips in relation to key events, for example interview technique. As it turned out my application turned into an offer which I have since accepted. Experience tells me many will appear to have your best interests at heart when you look for employment, few however really care about the end result for you and my feeling is that ECS have this front and centre at all times. It’s been a great experience throughout and I would certainly use them again in future should the need arise.

  • ECS Openness, Professional Approach and Sorting of Logistics Candidates
    ECS Openness, Professional Approach and Sorting of Logistics

    I choose to work for ECS due to their openness and professional approach. ECS are always gunning for what’s best for me; negotiating the best rate and sorting out any issues that I may have before they actually become problems. I can always talk to someone and I don’t feel like I am always having to fight my corner or justify myself. As a professional, I need to concentrate on getting to the client and doing a fantastic job. ECS sort out the logistics, leaving me free to concentrate on what I have to do and at the end of it all, I am happy to say that I am representing ECS! I DO recommend ECS to others all the time! Faye is a consummate professional. She never sounds like she’s out of ideas, is phased or in any way put out. She is always willing to hear me out, talk through ideas and represent me to clients in the best possible light. Leave it up to Faye to sort out any issues that may rear their ugly head. She is my knightess in shining armour!

  • ECS - Dedication, Support and Professionalism Candidates
    ECS - Dedication, Support and Professionalism

    I would just like to acknowledge how grateful I am for all the dedication, support and professionalism you have not only shown to me but guided my process with over the past few weeks. From the initial call to every stage of the process of my three interviews, contracts, salary (to name but a few) you have been jovial, polite and relentless in your pursuit of me obtaining a fantastic role in a company I could not be more than happy in. ECS staff (major thank you to Matt Bryson) have also always been happy, polite and quick to remedy any situation. To be honest I don't have a lot of good things to say about most recruitment agencies (along with a lot of other people) but wholeheartedly would recommend your agency for an award if I could. Perhaps your agency could teach other agencies to lose the stigma of consultants and move with the times, interests, politeness, professionalism and happiness to work with, that you, Matt & ECS staff do. A massive thank you and much appreciation for helping me to turn my life around.

  • Finding Suitable Resource At Short Notice Clients
    Finding Suitable Resource At Short Notice

    Finding a suitable resource at short notice has always been very difficult, however, Carl and his team have always delivered. With some difficult projects and very fluid schedules that I have been tasked with delivering, I have always been able to rely on Carl and his team. Their expertise and what appears to be an endless pool of resource gives me the confidence that any project will be delivered on time regardless of any issues that are presented along the way.

  • Friendly And Efficient Candidates
    Friendly And Efficient

    Very friendly and efficient.  I have worked several contracts for them and the most impressive thing is that they keep in touch with their contractors to see how things are going unlike some other resource partners, who place you and you never hear from them again till the end of the contract.  I would highly recommend ECS. - Witold Dyozinski - Contractor

  • Finding Skills That Suit Your Needs Candidates
    Finding Skills That Suit Your Needs

    I'm very happy with the service offered by ECS Recruitment and, in particular, the communication, knowledge, expertise and skills of Matthew McGreevy. Matthew has been very helpful, particularly in terms of finding positions that are suited to my needs and skills. He explains the expectations and requirements of contract opportunities and he explains these very precisely. This makes things easier for me to take on board and helps even further when I'm doing the job itself. It results in me being fully equipped with a wealth of information about what to expect when I visit a client site. In addition, I'm very pleased with all ECS Recruitment staff based in the Coventry branch; they do a fantastic job in looking after me and seeking positions when and where necessary. Please pass on my thanks to everyone at the branch and, in particular, to Matthew McGreevy for his sterling work. - Shahzad Ahmed - Contractor

  • Making Transitions In To New Contracts A Breeze Candidates
    Making Transitions In To New Contracts A Breeze

    Matt from ECS made the transition into my new contract a breeze! He kept in close contact from the start, updating me at all stages through the process. Where ambiguity became apparent, Matt worked to clarify the situation, quickly and effectively. From a contract administration perspective, I place ECS at the professional end of the recruitment market; their end to end retention process is clear and fair, making the whole experience of client engagement streamlined and productive. - Mark Austin - Contractor
