The folks at Skillsearch are all you could ask for in a recruitment agency: polite, enthusiastic and thorough. Working with Giles, Guy and Katie has been a real pleasure and I would definitely turn to Skillsearch to help me in the future, as either an employer or candidate. Thanks!

Antony Woods, Software Development Engineer | Simworx

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate

Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again.

I think it's not an understatement to say, I would still be looking for new opportunities without Skillsearch’s help and determination. Their relentless pursuit of my interests with employers never kept me far from their attentions. This led to the lining up of several interviews within days of making contact with Skillsearch. Not only were they quick in finding interviews, but the suitability was spot on. They matched both mine and my employers requirements so well that after my first interview I landed a role. I'd barely made it to the train station on my way home as I was receiving an excited call giving me the good news. The friendliness and the genuine care they had for my success was unmatched from other recruiters I had tried. I can't recommend Skillsearch enough!

Giles and the Skillsearch team are unbelievably helpful and accommodating, even in the face of last minute requests and difficult-to-fill roles. Highly recommended.

Tom Page, Studio Director | PLA Studios

Giles and the team recently helped me find the perfect role in central Brighton. Whilst working with him I was highly impressed with his knowledge of the industry, diligence and professionalism. A cut above many other recruiters I've worked with; every step of the way he showed an impeccable understanding of my skills and requirements and was able to leverage his contacts to find the perfect match in no time at all. I won't hesitate to recommend Skillsearch to my friends and colleagues in the future.

As a leading Oracle consultancy we initially engaged with Skillsearch around 2 years ago when they were just part of our recruitment supplier network. Over that period they have demonstrated a consistent level of delivery in the niche Oracle space that has led us to dispense with our other recruiters and work exclusively with Skillsearch. We have taken the relationship to the level that they come to us with potential sales leads and in turn we are happy to promote them, when appropriate, directly to our clients.

UK Award-Winning Oracle Consultancy

The Skillsearch team did a fantastic job and were a real pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the employers they work with, their recruiting processes and key staff was a real boon in both finding the right position and the subsequent application. Having worked with Skillsearch both as an employer and as a candidate I would thoroughly recommend them as being among the best in the industry.

Dan Borthwick, Mobile Technical lead | King

Through my work at Unity Technologies, and as organiser of the London Unity Usergroup, I have a very close connection with Unity developers throughout the UK. A common theme amongst Unity developers is a call for Unity jobs. On the flip side to this, I visit many studios that are looking for Unity developers to fill vital positions for the development of exciting new projects. It was clear that communication between individual developers and studios needed improving. It's great that Skillsearch have taken the initiative and are focussing on improving the communication between Unity developers and studios.

Russ Morris, Product Evangelist | Unity Technologies

When we need extra resources, Skillsearch is always one of our first ports of call – Giles has a very good understanding of our industry and can always find the perfect candidate for our needs.
