  • Hi Maria, "Thanks so much for your feedback on my CV, I really appreciate it. My CV definitely needs changing as I am getting little response for anything I apply for. Really value your opinion and thanks again for reviewing for me." Mike  
  • "I just wanted to pass on my excellent experience with Colin! I was ultimately unsuccessful for the role I had applied for but I have nothing but respect for Colin and the way that he handled the whole process. There are a lot of sharks out there but people that work for your company are a cut above the best and i just wanted you to know that. The whole job search procedure is very stressful and Colin did everything to keep me updated and broke the bad news in a very fair and even handed way. I will keep in touch with Colin and continue to kiss frogs, hoping that one day it will turn into a prince and I will land the dream job"  James
  • "From a Candidate who has worked for a major a FMCG business for 18 years I have found SmithCarey and especially Mark a privilege to work with. From the initial conversation by telephone and the one to one interview the professional approach has been first class. I have found my perfect role within four weeks of searching. The support and direction being something I have found very refreshing in the current climate."  Darrell  
  • “Colin brought alive the scenarios for our negotiation course through a mix of on the job experiences and theory, which ensured we took the learning on board.  The team now have a set of tools which we regularly use to guide our negotiations and planning, and Colin’s encouragement of sharing learning’s continues within the team!"
  • "David has been absolutely instrumental in helping me find my perfect role in FMCG.  He has always made himself available for a conversation and happy to offer independent advice despite it not having any direct benefit to himself.  From the start David has been amazing, through my interviews and tests, the support has been 110%.  David has a very likeable and honest nature and gets results". I would recommend David to everyone who is in search for a career and not a job! Saleem
  • After arriving in London as an FMCG-focused sales & marketing professional with big dreams but few connections, Colin Beaumont provided invaluable support. Unlike the other recruiters I had worked with, Colin felt like a true mentor and supported me every step of the way. His eye for talent, impressive knowledge of the space and unparalleled network empowered me to land my dream job. I am so grateful to Colin and the team at SmithCarey!
  • 'Smith Carey have been working in partnership for almost 3 years now.  This has enabled us to benchmark our teams against a clear set of commercial competencies, and to design and implement a bespoke training and development program.  This tailored approach is already yielding benefits, and we are now into our third phase. I can recommend their methods 100%.' Commercial Director - FMCG
  • “I have received personal coaching from Smith Carey, this has significantly opened my eyes to unlock my talents and potential. Operating now at a more senior level, the coaching has allowed me to move from challenging our previous strategy to bringing teams together to help develop out future strategies and this is now the most rewarding part of my current role.” Clare
  • Smith Carey have run a series of courses for our commercial teams and I have found them to be really energizing and thought provoking.   Happy to say that the energy has not been lost after the courses have ended and real life intervenes, thanks to embedding sessions and a strong focus on role play to reinforce behavioural change
  • "Thank you for your time last week, the training was very enjoyable and certainly exceeded my expectations.  Unfortunately I have completed many a sales training course where the objective has been to convince you along the lines of the Walt Disney style of training.... however the training that you delivered was nothing like that :-)"
