We have only recently used James and his team at CU Recruitment to fill a key vacancy. The process was very easy, the initial ‘fact-find’ was thorough, and we were kept up to date at every stage of the process. Steve, along with James were both very easy to contact, responsive, professional, and, importantly, determined to provide an excellent service, which they did. I would definitely look to use them again in the future.

I have used CU Recruitment in the last 12 months and easily have onboarded 3 great new members of staff. My experience with the team has been professional and easy to work with. Within a few days I was receiving cv's through and everyone is prechecked so this save any time wasting and everyone interviewed was of a high standard. Highly recommend.

Although initially securing a Credit Manager opportunity through James, unfortunately, ultimately, I had to turn it down in favour of another identical role, through another source, which paid significantly more, and a job I didn't expect to get! However, even in those set of what could have been awkward circumstances, James was still understanding,supportive,and most importantly not critical, and in fact he showed that calm, approachable quality all through the recruitment process. I endorse CU Recruitment, and recommend both employers and applicants to try and trust a very professional company.
James and the team were really helpful throughout the entire recruitment process. They’re professional, thoughtful, and knowledgeable and I couldn’t have asked for a better service
