Client & Candidate Reviews

  • "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  
  • Oetker approached SmithCarey to support them in upskilling their colleagues across a number of functions in the area of Competition Law, Corporate Compliance and GSCOP. Despite the subject matter being rather dry, with a necessary focus on the requisite legal obligations and requirements, SmithCarey as a team did a fantastic job in delivering an engaging, informative and stimulating training programme. The programme was structured in such a way as to ensure that the correct level of detail and intensity was relevant to the audience and the feedback from participants across all functions was universally positive. Without question I would recommend Paul Carey, whose approach has been understanding, collaborative, confident and insightful throughout.

  • It was nice to work with a recruitment consultancy that really made the extra effort to understand exactly what I was looking for. Throughout all stages of the recruitment process, they kept me well informed and went that extra step to ensure that the job was right for me. The support and focus to detail throughout was exceptional. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend SmithCarey to others.
  • “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!"
  • At a time when I had been made redundant, I lost all of my confidence and you really helped boost that, particularly with the belief that I could move into a sector that other recruiters had said I wouldn't be able to get into - so thank you! Your service is fantastic, with the personal touch that makes all of the difference rather than just being another candidate or a CV in a huge pile! I will be recommending you to any of my friends that are looking for their next placement. Thank you for believing in me.
  • "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
