Working as the UK Recruitment Manager in an IT company, I needed to find a Senior Business Development Director for an emerging technology arena. The position could have been based in any one of several European countries, but required a skill set that was limited across the European landscape. Farquharson Grant was recommended to me based on previous positive experiences. My colleagues’ recommendation was spot on. Within 6 weeks we had candidates at second interview stage and ultimately employed an excellent person in Germany for the role. We were delighted because there was a limited pool of candidates for this position and the role was filled within a very quick timeframe and with a high quality individual.

After this experience I continue to engage Farquharson Grant at a senior level within the business, particularly where it difficult for us to reach candidates, or where the specification was niche.

They have demonstrated that they are able to find the finest candidates the businesses I have worked for, even when the candidate hasn’t been looking for a new role. I would strongly recommend Farquharson Grant a partner to any organisation
