It was a great experience. The team and the agents were close to me during the whole process. They had all the possible information about the role and the hiring process. I would recommend Explore as a great company. Thanks so much to Myles for his effort and great job helping me to find a role.

As a direct result of working with Stephen I was exposed to the greatest amount of opportunities to pick from. No other recruiter came close to the number of opportunities Stephen was able to provide.

Was great, dealing with interview schedule, helping to clarify any doubts you have contacting the company, helping with salary negotiation. They deal with the entire process for you, so you can fell relaxed and not feel the pressure of getting a response back to the company. Very friendly and helpful, respecting you by not calling you all the time 20 times a day. I had a very good experience. Usually recruiters pressure you to take decisions and annoy you with a lot of calls, this was not the case.

I really felt that they wanted me to have the greatest opportunity possible. The best thing is how professional and friendly Darren Tomlin is, the agent that helped me to get the best job I ever had so far. I can honestly say that is a very reliable and trustworthy company. I really want to thank Darren Tomlin who surprised me with an awesome job opportunity after I had given up looking for jobs in the UK.

I was getting a lack of communication, interest and willingness to help from recruiters until I worked with Explore. Explore had excellent communication skills, very friendly staff that make you feel more like friends than just another candidate. Perfectionism in every inch.  Well done, you are definitely the best recruitment agency out there

After getting my new job through explore I realised we needed a lot more marketers in the business as we had a large scope of work coming in. I wanted to fill these roles with similar people to myself, so I went to Explore.  We advertise internally and through other recruiters, but having a previous relationship with Explore meant they understood what I was looking for a lot better.  They're a very personable recruiter - people aren't just numbers to them which is very refreshing.  They found us some extra candidates who are now employed and enjoying their new jobs.I myself got a new career because of them. I also have a lot less pressure on me to find people fast because they've done it for me! I would recommend them as they are good both with clients and candidates, honest and approachable.

Darren is an incredibly dedicated professional with an impressive work ethic that speaks to the type of person he is. It was a pleasure to work with Darren, and the process, from beginning to end, was smooth and simple. He never pushed me to engage in interviews that I didn't find compelling, and he has been extremely professional and caring. Darren did an excellent job finding a role that matched my needs and he understood from the first moment what my situation was and what it was I was looking for. I would strongly recommend Darren, and would keenly work with him again!

I was having difficulty in obtaining a position with a leading company in the industry of my choice and had worked with other recruiters and applied individually to other employers. Explore provided complete efficiency, support and advice and guidance to help me achieve my goals. Catherine, my contact, was amazing, she boosted my confidence, helped me set things out correctly including my thought process entering a serious interview.  The speed at which Catherine worked was amazing, we spoke a couple of times within a couple of days and she got me in front of the people I needed to be in front of very, very quickly.

I had a fantastic experience, very efficient, concise and accurate advice and techniques, if this is how Explore train their staff, I will always come back if I feel the need. Catherines personal touch is amazing, always interested in your progress, constantly reassuring, it is safe to say that she wanted what was best for me and strive to achieve it for which I am truly thankful. I even turned up to work to find a card from her congratulating me on my success, which got my team talking to me and me talking to my team, it was a great ice breaker, just fantastic.

Some recruiters don't really take the time to understand what you are looking for but that's not the case with Explore. They're great people, really helpful and happy to take additional time to find the perfect role.  They've found me great contracts with perfect skills fits and good rates.  I've loved working with Dan who has found me 4 contracts and we've been working together for 3 years now

With Explore once I started working with them I noticed that they were committed to finding me a new role, they kept me informed and updated.

One of the best things about working with Explore was that they rang me back. There was never any "Radio Silence" from them or me chasing them for an update, something that in my opinion sets them apart from the other recruiters in the market place. The communication, information and commitment I experienced from both Jake first and then Daniel in my endeavours in getting a new role was what made this such an easy task and one that would definitely make me go to them first if I was back in the market looking for a new opportunity

From my personal experience I can say that working with Explore was a pleasure and finding a new opportunity was painless and professional.  If you are in the market and looking for a new role to fulfil you or take you to the next level in your chosen career path, then you will get good service, advice, commitment and opportunities by using Explore

I was looking for my next challenge having been in my role for more than 4 years. Not only that, I was also looking for a move away from London to Manchester due to family reasons.  I'd applied for a few vacancies myself and spoke with various recruitment consultants regarding opportunities they had but to no avail. 

I found Tom to be very personable and perceptive to my requirements. He understood what kind of challenge I wanted from my next role and was able to match me up perfectly.  The entire process was easy and I was kept informed at every stage. The communication was very swift. I hope to work together again in the future.
