“I have retained Wallace Hind for the last 16 years, using their full range of services to recruit a diverse range of professionals throughout Europe.
Three things have impressed me about their approach;
1. Their understanding and indepth knowledge of our markets which has proved invaluable.
2. Their genuine desire to really understand our need.
3. Their ability to convert that to a quality shortlist of candidates within the timescales agreed.
Their ability to source the best talent has ensured these individuals have not only succeeded but have also been promoted within our organisation.”

We have been able to recruit good quality candidates from the packaging solutions sector but in addition to this, Wallace Hind have provided us with options from outside our immediate industry. This shows a thorough understanding of the market and the skills necessary for each role.
At interview the candidates were well matched, well prepared and are briefed accurately.
We have a very good working partnership with Wallace Hind and look forward to using their service again in the future.We would recommend Wallace Hind to anybody that needs an experienced, trustworthy and efficient recruitment service"

"We have established a close working relationship with Wallace Hind Selection over the past 2 years.

Wallace Hind Selection is undoubtedly an innovative and responsive Search and Selection firm”
Ray Carter- HR Director Johnson Diversey.
“We have worked with Wallace Hind over the last 6 months to recruit Area Sales Managers throughout the UK. From the very start we found they fully understood our brief, business and the type of candidate we were looking to recruit.
It has proven difficult to recruit Area Sales Managers with Construction Industry experience. Due to this it has been imperative that candidates demonstrate an understanding of our complex range of products and that the recruitment agency has understood the type of candidate that possesses the skills and experience to fulfil this.
Wallace Hind always put forward candidates of this quality, which proved a success in the recent recruitment of 2 new Area Sales Managers – in what had previously been an unsuccessful recruitment process.
We have found our managing consultant to be a very effective account manager, always available to discuss candidates without the unwanted pressure and persistence that some recruitment consultants display.”
Joseph Parker HR Officer RIBA Enterprises (Royal Institute of British Architects).
“My experience of dealing with Wallace Hind and in particular my account manager has been very positive. The service we have received has been excellent with job opportunities being turned into CV's very quickly. The calibre of candidates has generally been very good leaving some tough decisions before moving to offer.
The most impressive point to note was their ability to understand the requirements of the role quickly through expert questioning and profiling, therefore ensuring that the first round of recruitment was successful.
Altogether probably the best recruitment agents I have worked with over the last 5-years."
“Wallace Hind Selection found us a high quality candidate who exactly matched the brief given to them. The resulting recruitment has been very successful.”
Peter Myers-MD. Altomed.
“Henkel Loctite has worked with Wallace Hind for over six years and the team has become an integral part of our recruitment process, particularly in the search for experienced and successful sales individuals.
They fully understand our organisation in terms of how we work and most importantly the type of individuals who will thrive within the Henkel group.
They have consistently delivered shortlists of high calibre candidates and in doing so helped me make the best use of my time. I would recommend their services without hesitation.”
Andy Fletcher. Business Manager UK. Henkel Ltd.
“I wanted to thank you for the way you approached our search for a Sales Director for our trailer business. The research you did on our business paid its rewards. The CV's you presented were on target, and your preliminary screening on the phone highlighted some real strong points (and some weaknesses) with the applications.
Times are tough and getting a fast result without wasting a lot of management time and resource is important on senior appointments. All 3 of the shortlisted candidates could have done the job - which is not my experience with recruitment people generally."
Mark Carrington. Managing Director.

We will continue to use Wallace Hind to recruit key personnel.”

“I have worked with many recruitment consultants throughout my HR career and Wallace Hind has stood the test of time!
They have never failed to truly understand our business and the job requirements.
Our Account Manager is a complete professional and even manages to present me with the perfect candidate before I have given her the brief! I can always trust her integrity and confidentiality and feel that she is very much part of our recruitment strategy.
It’s rare these days to be able to put such trust in a recruitment consultancy.”
