Firstly I would like to say that having Rilwood Associates represent me filled me with confidence as I found they were professional and courteous at every stage of the process.
Usually going to interviews and applying for new jobs is a stressful experience but I can honestly say that Rilwood, particularly Michael Wright, made the process enjoyable and stress free. With Michael’s guidance and advice I went into my interviews prepared and confident that I was a good fit for the job.
I felt that I could confide in Michael with any questions or concerns and he always offered helpful, practical advice and was interested in what I had to say. He was always at the end of the phone if I needed to ask questions and took a personal interest in the role I was interviewing for.
I was particularly impressed that Michael had a good knowledge of the niche industry that I work in and offered the intellectual horse power to advise me on what skills to highlight in the tough interview process I was involved in.
I can honestly say that without having Rilwood and particularly Michael Wright putting me forward for this role I may not have been successful.
I offer them my thanks in helping me to reach the goals of my five year plan with a year to spare!
I hope that this reference goes some way to repaying the professionalism, guidance and skill they showed.
To anyone considering applying for a new career, my best recommendation would be to use Rilwood. They will help you put yourself across in the best light with an understanding of your strengths and a real insight into what employers are looking for.
Michael went above and beyond, even getting back to me outside of business hours to let me know I had got the job I was applying for.
I would like to thank Michael and the whole Rilwood team and could not be happier in my new role.

I have been in contact with Rilwood over the past month or so with regards to a position and would like to pass on some feedback.
All too often the recruitment business gets a bad press and some of it is self-inflicted, however, there are not enough times when somebody gets some credit.
I cannot praise Rilwood highly enough for your commitment and communication at every stage of the process I have gone through. The consultant was thorough with his briefings and follow up and his quick turnaround when I requested information was exactly what was needed. Although the outcome for me personally was not successful, my dealings with you were extremely positive and if the consultant is a measure of the rest of the company then you are certain of continued success.
My best wishes for the future and I look forward to the opportunity of working with you again
Very kind regards

This is just a short note to say “Thank you” for representing me in my ultimately successful quest for employment.
Speaking as I found I can honestly say that Rilwood, yourself and your director came across as the most professional, courteous and well organised recruitment organisation I have ever dealt with.
Recruitment is a stressful process for a prospective candidate but you made me feel like it was a team effort and that I always had someone behind me to support me and answer any questions I might have.
I would have no hesitation is recommending yourselves to any professional candidate looking for a recruitment “partner” to help them through what might be a defining moment in their career.
Thanks again and best regards,

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help and support over the last few weeks in securing me a new position which will make a very big difference to my family, so much that my partner will no longer have to work evenings which she is very pleased about.
It was good to meet you in Bracknell and I appreciate you took the time to travel all the way down from Leeds to meet me.
I have dealt with a few agencies in the past and by far the one to one personal, professional touch that Rilwood Associates gave makes you stand out a long way from the rest.
I will be sure to recommend your services to anyone I know that is looking for work as I cannot fault the service and support you have given me.

The consultant does exactly what he says he will do, when he says he will do it. Tireless work ethic and very brisk with a business like approach. I have no reservations in recommending Rilwood.

I have just been placed in the Commercial Manager role and am writing to inform you of the excellent job and service Rilwood provided to me.
Not only was the process extremely efficient (two weeks from start to finish), but the preparation the consultant offered me and new ideas to impress the company at interview were just a different class to other agencies that have looked after me. I have been with most other big agencies in the UK for last two months and they did very little for me. The fact that the consultant gave me the ideas to take potential contracts ‘in principal’ to the interview and the help of checking my presentation was one of the main reasons for my success. Additionally to place me in a role that meets my salary expectations during the worst economic period in history shows the quality of Rilwood.
I am happy for this testimonial to be used on your website and if there is some way to reward the consultant internally please can this be done. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone for recruiting people and happy to be used as a 3rd party reference if ever required.
Once again thank you for giving me such a wonderful career opportunity.

I would like to thank you and especially the consultant involved for the professional and efficient way that Rilwood helped me gain the role of Specification Manager.
From the outset the consultant was quick and informative and very thorough. Out of the few companies I have dealt with Rilwood has been the most professional and it was a pleasure to work with you all.
All in all a job well done!
I will call after my first day and catch up with you. I will also drop in for a coffee when I’m in the area to put some faces to voices and names.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rilwood Associates, and the consultant involved for the attention and professionalism shown to me recently during my job search and subsequent job offer.
I cannot commend Rilwood highly enough as I have been made to feel that you regarded my details and subsequent client interviews of personal interest and dedication.
As you can imagine I’m obviously very pleased to have landed a new job and can only put this down to the consultant’s input, creating a position by using excellent networking skills and conducting himself in an exemplary manner. In addition his extremely positive and pro-active approach was a real breath of fresh air.
Please feel free to contact me for a verbal recommendation.

I am writing this letter of recommendation because my experience with Rilwood Associates was truly outstanding from start to finish of the process.
The consultant is a dedicated individual, and a true gentleman. What I mean by that is when he said he would ring he did, and at the time specified, he also acted as the middle man that organised two interviews for me and also helped me to secure a better salary.
From the first initial enquiry to my new employer offering me the job this was completed virtually within the same month.
If I ever need a professional and courteous recruitment agency to get me my next job then Rilwood Associates will be at the top of my list.
Thanks again for finding me my new position

I have found Rilwood to be both professional and astute. Rilwood’s team clearly recognise a good fit between the role and the most suited candidate to fulfill the role.
The consultant maintained contact at each key stage and managed the process effectively as well as understanding my aspirations to progress my career.

This is just a quick note to let you know how impressed I have been with Rilwood’s role in finding me a new sales position within the construction industry.
I was first contacted by Rilwood after I had put my CV on Jobsite; after an initial call when it was arranged that he would call me back for a lengthier telephone conversation he called me at the appointed time and conducted a telephone interview in a very professional manner acquiring all the information that he needed to proceed.
When I was first contacted the consultant promised that I would be impressed with the amount of work that he would carry out on my behalf and that has certainly proved to be the case. He targeted the right employers, secured interviews for me with the right people, has kept in communication throughout the process and ultimately all of this has resulted in me receiving a contract of employment from a very well respected company in my chosen field.
My thanks again to Rilwood and the consultant involved, for his involvement and to the rest of the team for a job well done.
With Best Regards

Thank you for your help with securing me a job offer which I have accepted. I have been very impressed with your proactive approach and in particular your helpful suggestions in the preparation of my presentation. The approach seems somewhat different to other agencies I have dealt with who often tend to be far more customer focused rather than both customer and candidate focused. I have also been very impressed with the speed with which the whole process progressed and again my thanks to you for that.
Thanks again and kind regards

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank yourself for your support and proactive approach in helping me secure a new management position. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our dialogue, and it’s been great to have your counsel. I also have to say you have been by far the most responsive and dynamic recruitment consultants by some distance.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rilwood Associates to my peers, and friends. I look forward to working with you should I have any future recruitment requirements in my new role, and wish you continued success.
Thanks and best regards

Outstanding work ethic, the consultant was a perfect partner to help me move to my new position and put in more then the norm to make sure all went as it should and that I was moving to the right company and right job. I have no reservations in recommending him.
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, On Time

I’ve been in contact with Rilwood Associates over the last few weeks. I thought I’d write to you and give you some feedback on my experience of working with Rilwood.
Over the last decade or so I’ve dealt with recruiters on many occasions, from the perspective of employer and employee alike. Almost every one of those experiences has been average at best, and thoroughly unprofessional at worst. I firmly believe the recruitment business has taken a massive downturn in recent years, with quality of service apparently being the least valuable asset in the recruitment process. Imagine, therefore, my cynicism when I engaged with yet another recruitment company (Rilwood Associates) and recruiter I’d never heard of, especially when I’m fed the line, “I’d really like to market you to a targeted list of potential employers”. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard this before, to be followed by a complete lack of action from the recruiter’s side.
However, every once in a while, we’re reminded to not tar everyone with the same brush, and my experience with Rilwood has been one such occasion.
The consultant’s approach to recruitment is highly professional, well structured and positive, with a level of enthusiasm that fosters immense confidence in people he works with. He also demonstrates unquestionable commitment to delivering what he sets out to achieve, with no compromise on quality of service. The consultant is a recruitment professional that truly understands what drives success in his business – a focus on people and relationships. I find this a refreshing change, and something of a rarity in an industry that seems to largely be populated by spotty adolescents barely out of nappies.
Oh, and in less than 30 days, he helped me secure an excellent position as Head of Sales with a Scottish company.
I don’t write letters of recommendation very often but this occasion deserves it. The consultant is a credit to Rilwood Associates. I wish there were more like him in the recruitment industry.

I’m just writing you a note to personally thank you for all your help, from initial enquiry through to receipt of a formal contract, from 2 Sisters (Gunstones Bakery); I’m delighted to be starting there on 24th September.
Your communication has been excellent, and you’ve always kept me in the loop, from start to finish. Advice at every stage has been most supportive and welcome, demonstrating your professional approach at all times.
It’s been a pleasure working with you, and would most definitely recommend you personally, as well as Rilwood generally, to other colleagues and acquaintances.
A big thank you to you personally, and to your support team.
Keep in touch,

The consultant at Rilwood Associates was extremely helpful in my quest for looking for a new job. I gave him a list of possible companies I was interested in working for and he acted on this immediately; setting up several interviews.
Contact by phone and email was excellent which really helped in the quicker than expected conclusion of finding a new job and I would have no hesitation in using him in the future.
August 22nd, 2012 by admin
I am writing to inform you how delighted I am with the service provided to me by Rilwood.
From day one, the consultant has worked tirelessly contacting companies on my behalf to try to create an opening. This has been a real win-win situation as I have been offered a role I am thrilled about and my consultant has established a relationship with a number of companies with roles to fill.
He has at all times remained positive, dedicated and professional. He has kept in contact with me every step of the way and always offered me the best advice.
Rilwood was previously unknown to me but I cannot recommend the consultant I worked with enough and will put business his way in the future wherever possible.
I am happy for you to use me as a testimonial should you wish.
Thanks and regards
