Candidates

I was originally called by Simon from Charles Simon Associates regarding a prospective role. Nothing out of the ordinary, however there was a subsequent delay to the recruitment process and during this time both Simon and his business partner kept me informed at regular intervals with honest, meaningful, and practical updates and negotiation on a prospective role. Charles Simon thereafter honoured their promises after the role was put on hold by the client in that they did not over promise or commit on anything they were not practically able to deliver. What was also notable was a “message of good luck Prior to starting the new role, in addition to ensuring or checking I was in a suitable position and in readiness to begin a new role. In conclusion I would 100 per cent recommended and also as a final word Charles Simon refuse to engage in additional fluffiness or wordy engagements which some recruitment agencies all to often deliver, but thereafter fail to back up when speculative, or even, actual prospective job roles fall flat to the ground.

“I really enjoyed working with Charles Simon Associates during my job search. They managed to find me a job that matches both my qualifications and needs, made themselves available throughout the different steps and provided fast answers to all my questions. It was really reassuring to have them by my side during this crucial change in my life and career (i.e. moving to a new country in the middle of a pandemic). A month on the job, I'm completely satisfied with my new position.”

“Benjamin is rare breed within the industry, he truly goes above and beyond! Even though I didn't get the role, ultimately, I have never seen anyone in recruitment work as tirelessly as he did for me. He was always thinking 4-5 steps ahead, being proactive and ensuring that every base is covered in dealing with any concerns either with the client or event with the candidate. Even with difficult conversations he always dealt with eloquence yet knows how to get his point across. Honestly, I really hope to work with Benjamin again and again as either a candidate or as a client because he is an absolute class act. Thanks again Benjamin.”

“Benjamin is a courteous, honourable fellow who really goes the extra mile. I was fortunate enough to secure a role in an organisation because of his tenacity. Ben found me via LinkedIn and within a couple of weeks I'd had two interviews and eventually secured a decent role within a great fledgling company. Benjamin was keen to follow everything up whilst guiding me through the whole process, I was kept in the loop at all times and the phone calls that I was promised were kept. Benjamin means business and is great at what he does, if you are lucky enough to be contacted by him regarding a role, do not allow him or his genuine opportunities to pass you by. Thanks Benjamin.”
