Candidate and Clients Testimonials

"James got in touch with me about a role that matched my experience and career goals very well. He is very friendly and communicated my new employer’s requirements well, so I was fully prepared throughout the interview process. In addition, James kept me up to date and provided support all the way through the process from the first interview to accepting the position. He followed up before my first day in my new role, and again after my first week to check how I was getting on. James is very professional yet personable and, in my opinion, did a great job! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."


"Matt, just a quick note of thanks for your help and support during the Managing Director interview process, that I recently entered with Wallace Hind. I am sorry that I was unable to have the opportunity to learn more about the company and progress further, but I do wish the selected candidate the very best of luck in their new role!  If you get any more useful feedback for me, I would be very grateful if you could share it. If you have any other potentially suitable roles, I remained interested."


"I was very pleased with how this whole process with Wallace Hind was conducted. There was no pressure and always with their advice that it needs to be “right” for me. There was a good understanding of how I wished to behave professionally and ethically towards both my current and perspective employer. Many thanks to John and Jason for your full support."


"Clare is absolutely the most professional of all the recruiters I have spoken with over my career. She provided me with all the information I needed, which made the interview easier, as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. She was very supportive during the recruitment process which helped to take the pressure away and I was able to focus completely on the questions asked by interviewers. I heartily recommend Clare as a recruiter and she will be the first person I get in touch with the next time I am looking for a new challenge."

"Michael. Just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for the experience. Naturally the outcome is not one I would have hoped for, BUT I thought the process and the communication was second to none.

Please keep my details handy and maybe we'll nail the next one."

He's also not as bad at golf as I am!"

I would recommend to my peers but also I would consider using for key vacancies in my managerial role".

"Wallace Hind, and specifically Zoe Chatley our consultant, has made several successful placements at VIP Computers Centre Ltd over recent years. I would consider them specialists in our industry, understanding the challenges and forever changing marketplace we operate within. They dedicate the necessary time in both understanding each individual assignment as well as supporting our business in shortlisting effectively candidates and preparing them for interview stage with ourselves. Using a recruitment specialist is a cost to every business but when using Wallace Hind, we know that the investment made will be returnable investment due to the success we have had in finding talent that can make a difference to our business".

"Jim made me feel very comfortable from the onset – this was my first interview post university. He saw potential in my abilities and knowing he was backing me gave me extra confidence during my interviews. The offices at Wallace Hind are lovely with a very relaxed and professional environment. Everyone at Wallace Hind was welcoming.  Always greeted with a friendly voice from reception when calling. Jim was always on hand to offer support and advice; he put my needs first and never failed to provide trusting advice. Jim is an asset to Wallace Hind and through my experience with him I rate Wallace Hind very highly and would always recommend the company. Because of both Jim and Wallace Hind I secured a job greater than I ever imagined possible".

"Matt is a great recruitment consultant. He clearly translates client needs and identifies candidates that meet those requirements. During my job search he ensured I constantly kept informed, he coached me and gave me great supporting advice. He has a great sense of humour and I would encourage clients and candidates who require a great professional recruiter to contact Matt. Highly recommend. If he was on trip advisor I would give him 5 stars".

"Tracey was informative, honest and exceptionally professional. Her dedication to the company was a key factor in me wishing to pursue the opportunity. All communication was superb, informative and thorough. Tracey was hugely engaging and a superb communicator. Wallace Hind will be my first, second and last choice. No one Better".

I consider Jim Kelly to be one of the most personable people I have ever met and look forward to more contact with him in the future".

"All excellent, thank you, Glen was great. Two excellent candidates who were impossible to choose between – couldn’t have asked for more".

"Ian was an amazing mentor more so than a consultant, he really made me think about my next move and how to get there. This is how all agencies should be".

"During the stressful task of job hunting, Kerry made it easy to begin and finish my hunt. Kerry is brilliant! I felt she totally understood me and what I wanted. I couldn’t have hoped for a better consultant. If Kerry is a representative of Wallace Hind, then you have a world leading company. She gave great advice and support to me and was spot on the money each time. A total pleasure to work with. I have used good agencies in the past, but Kerry’s is by far and away the best of the best. Kerry is an absolute LEGEND"!

"I cannot thank Jim Kelly enough for everything - you have done for me you have changed my life, and I will be forever grateful! You truly are an asset to Wallace Hind"!

"Fantastic organisation. Looks for a genuine match for both the organisation and employee. Great fact-finding questions so the organisation doesn't end up with a fickle employee on interview and the employee isn't wasting time and put forward for a 'fine for now' role. Glad I stumbled across you as this work ethic and passion is noticeably rare when I have been interviewed by other recruiters".

"I trust all is well with you and Wallace Hind? I must apologise for having not made contact sooner. It has been well over a year now since I started with the new company and I have been meaning to drop you a mail for some time now. I just wanted to offer my thanks for all your help with getting me the position. Although the first year was a steep learning curve the hard work is paying off now. I am pretty much at my annual target already for this year, which is fantastic. Given the position I was in at previous employee, I cannot thank you enough for getting me in front my new employer. You said at the time you would look after me you have really done that. Thank you very much and hopefully I will see you again at the PPMA show next year".

Tracey was informed, knowledgeable and helpful, a breath of fresh air compared to other consultants I have used elsewhere, Tracey gave me her mobile number for almost anytime contact. I would like to thank Tracey for her advice and being very supportive”.

"Zoe is professional & understanding, very good communication, feedback and extremely productive. Great experience compared to dealings with other agencies".

"Zoe was first class and I really enjoyed working with her. In the past when trying to follow up my initial applications sent for different roles the service was terrible. When Zoe called me initially on this role I was amazed! But that was because she was chasing me and not the other way around! Service Provided by Zoe was excellent. I recommend Wallace Hind".

“Rod Plowe gave me a clear description of the job role and requirements of the position so that was good. Rod constantly kept me updated and I received sufficient feedback each time.  The whole process was good right from the initial contact. I was kept updated throughout and I would like to thank Rod for making this opportunity happen”.

“Lee was very open and realistic and delivered exactly as promised, and he was very good about keeping in touch but not hassling, He did well to find candidates that were suitable. The short list provided strong options. The best recruitment consultant I have used”.

"Clare always left me informed of progress in searching for ideal candidate. Keep doing what you are doing. You have the correct formula".

“John conducted our initial contact via phone due to the time constrains. He recognised my needs and gave very helpful and genuine feedback. John was very welcoming and gave excellent pre-interview briefings, with extensive knowledge of the company. I haven’t used a better agency. I feel John was always approachable, informative and honest and I would like to thank him once again for all his help and assistance. It is very much appreciated”. 

"Lee’s due diligence and commitment us has reassured our belief in him and Wallace Hind. Lee is always approachable. Lee is an absolute star and Wallace Hind are very lucky to have him as a brand ambassador"!

“Clare is both friendly and professional. A very easy person both to talk and listen to. I knew the character of the company and my interviews by being thoroughly briefed beforehand. Clare left me closely involved at all stages from start to offer. If Clare is representative of Wallace hind, then you are assured of a very positive future. Clare is a great ambassador for Wallace hind and goes the extra mile to ensure a through and complete service”

I found Tony to be extremely professional, most helpful & very likeable. Any request was dealt with efficiently & with urgency! We are kept up to date at very stage, feedback was good. Our appointed candidate was chosen for real life qualities & has room to grow in the role. The entire experience was enjoyable, I felt in god hands. Although typically I tend not to trust recruiters, nothing against Wallace Hind. It’s a notoriously fickle industry in my opinion. I have had little experience in dealing with recruiter face to face, I was suitably impresses with Wallace hind Format and was made to feel comfortable and relaxed whilst interviewing”

"Zoe gave me a chance where others haven’t or wouldn’t. Didn’t feel like I was being pushed into an interview just to fill an applicant quote. Zoe was very friendly and understanding. Didn’t get the impression that I was potential payday! I am so much happier in my new role and with Wallace Hind as you’ve helped me finally get the marketing job I’ve wanted".

“The role attained is the exact role and company I had been searching for. If Mike had not identified my skills and experience and pushed these with the company, then I am sure I would not have received the offer. Mike did a fantastic job of matching me to the role & the company’s requirements. This proved excellent understanding and research of both candidate & employer requirements".

“My favourite interview throughout my career so far! Ian was approachable, positive and informative whilst providing a calming atmosphere. Ian was always available whenever I needed him. He went above and beyond when accommodating time restraints. Provided plenty of advice regarding the role, how I would fit in the company, team and future aspirations. Convenient location, beautiful building friendly receptionist, couldn’t have asked for a more professional agency. Thank you for everything”.

"Zoe and Wallace Hind have a clear understanding of the IT Channel and work exceptionally hard to understand your business with a 360° view. This eliminates the pain points often experienced with similar organisations. What sets Zoe and her team over and above the rest of the organisations out there is the exceptional levels of service, proactivity, honesty and efficiency that raise the bar in the industry. It would be difficult to contemplate even considering using another organisation currently operating this field".

"During my time at Augustus Martin Ltd, I worked with Clare on several projects. Out of all the recruitment consultants that I have used, I have found Clare to be head and shoulders above the rest. She is very professional, pays attention to detail and really considers the cultural fit of the employee. She is one of the few recruiters who screen their candidates thoroughly. In addition, Clare is always friendly and happy to assist."

"We have not spoken before, but I thought a quick email of appreciation should be sent to you for the great work Jim Kelly has done for me recently. I have known Jim a long time and he has always done a fantastic job for me whenever requested. We are working together on a project and his attention to detail is first class and I thought it is worthy of praise".

"Matt was very professional, he made sure that I went into the interview with my eyes wide open and that is was right for me. He was superb, best recruiter I have come across. Matt was accessible and informative and non-biased. Superb experience thank you Matt".

"John appeared to know the Manager well and was able to answer a question I had about the role prior to interview by contacting them; I believe this showed genuine care for both parties. I appreciate that John was in constant contact around interview time, even if just to explain why there was a delay or why he was unable to give an update. I was never left wondering what was going to happen next and when. John was always very cheerful and I enjoyed talking to him on the phone. I appreciated that the ‘receipt of CV’ email indicated a timescale for the next stage of the process".

“Wallace Hind and both Ian Lyons and John Gowen actually took the time to get to know me, they didn’t rely on my CV in total but read past it. My situation wasn’t the norm, but Ian and John understood me and could see the synergy possibilities between my new role, the company, its people and me. Ian and John were great, they listened, they spent time looking for the right match for me. I’ve dealt with many agencies over the years, Wallace Hind are different.” Thank you chaps and well done.”

“Lee was probably the best recruitment agent I have ever dealt with, by some margin. I would strongly recommend Wallace Hind. I felt all aspects were very thorough. I was made to feel important and that I could approach the team at any time about anything. I received excellent advice that enabled me to handle what to do with two job offers that I felt went above and beyond the role. Wallace Hind were excellent all round. Such a comparison to other recruitment agencies I have worked with. I honestly couldn’t think more highly of Lee or the Wallace hind team.”

“Michael was very professional, helpful and honest. Excellent all-round experience with Wallace Hind and Michael, very happy with service provided (very professional). I had been made redundant and Michael gave me great advice and was very supportive and honest. I would have no hesitation recommending Wallace Hind or using you in the future.”

"Ian Lyons found a new role for Elizabeth three years ago; Elizabeth has kept in touch recently via our Facebook page…. Wallace Hind Selection helped match me up with a great opportunity and I'd highly recommend their professional service".

"You have restored my faith in recruitment companies knowing that there are actually some agencies that have my best interests at heart. I appreciate you’re a business and you don’t get paid unless you place a candidate into a role, but I found you refreshing, professional and you always seemed to have my best interests and future at heart. This cannot be said for all recruitment companies that I have been speaking to over the last few months! So many thanks for all your efforts, and I would highly recommend your company to anyone seeking a new role".

"Excellent job by Jim Kelly couldn’t be happier. The best service from a Recruitment company so far. Thank you to Jim for his professionalism and enthusiasm. I wish more agencies were like yours".

"Philip was very prompt and thorough with all the information that was requested. Phil had fantastic experience was professional and slick".

"Lee was very easy to chat to and very helpful and knowledgeable about the potential role. Lee was always available even on his day off! Lee couldn’t have done more to assist me. Great Company and Lee was above and beyond – 5 stars"!

"Happy New Year! Hope you had a great Christmas. Just a quick message to thank-you for giving me the opportunity to work for one of your clients as Area Sales manager. I really do appreciate it. I didn’t get a chance to contact you before the New Year, so figured this would be the best - Recruiters are numerous, good ones are few and far between, Wallace Hind are a one-off and I'm very pleased to have them on my Team. Have a great Christmas and New Year and we'll all meet up for that drink in 2016"

“John was absolutely brilliant, relaxed but professional, really got to know me and my needs, so good I have recommended him and Wallace Hind. My experience was so positive it is difficult to suggest any area for improvement!”

“I have worked with Zoe both as a hiring manager and as a candidate and on all occasions with great results. She genuinely invests the time in understanding the organisation, the role and the candidate’s skills and requirements matching them and professionally managing the full end to end process. Zoe has an excellent knowledge of the industry and all tiers of the channel. Zoe is a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her”.

“Tracey was very professional and initial contact was prompt. Tracey was always available when I tried to contact her. The communication received was excellent; Tracey was always fast with a response and always kept me as best informed as possible. Tracey was fantastic. Best Agency I have worked with would 100% recommend to anyone. Most agencies are only interested in getting their communication – Tracey was more interested in getting me a job – Wallace Hind knew and understood from the beginning what I wanted and Tracey could have done more for me".

“As a candidate Tracey made me feel valued and I took her encouraging comments on board, before the Assessment Centre exercise begun. Ultimately this helped me to secure the graduate position. Whenever I needed advice or when I was not sure about something I used to email Tracey and her replies were very prompt and valuable".

"Tracey FitzGerald was very informative and helpful about the role. Could not fault Tracey at all. She was available and day and time! Again, Tracey was extremely helpful and I don’t think I would be in the role now without her efforts. From what I saw from Tracey, the company is very good, helpful and professional. Just like to say thank you for all your help Tracey!”

"Michael Thorpe - I really feel compelled to express my thanks to you for all the hard work you are undertaking in respect of my application. Irrespective of the outcome, I know I could not have had anyone "fighting my corner" more than you. I shall of course recommend you without a moment's hesitation, and if there is anything I can do to assist you in terms of a testimonial etc., please ask. You are by far the very best recruiter I have come across and I would like to thank you for keeping me abreast of developments - this is unique in my experience!"

"Whilst looking for new employment I looked at several different recruitment agencies to help me find the right role.  Without question Wallace Hind Selection were head and shoulders above their competition in the service that they offered. From my very first conversation with Clare Gibson it was clear that she was very well briefed about the opportunity presented and had a very professional approach to meet her clients need. The extra time and effort she had taken to understand the role made a huge difference in deciding if this was the right opportunity for me and also in preparing for interview once I had made that decision. At every point I was given a clear understanding of what was required for the next step.  Every inquiry was promptly answered and I felt that she was genuinely interested in making the process a success both for me and the hiring company. I am incredibly grateful for the help, advice and positivity that was offered to me and I have no hesitation in recommending Clare".

“Ian was very quick to recognise why I was looking for a new role, it was also a great help and advantage having him at the interview….Having dealt with a few employment agencies over the past ten years. I felt Wallace Hind to be very professional and made me feel they were prepared to do the little bit extra that would help me get the role! Thank you Ian in helping me to get my new role as Works Manager!”

“Clare’s communication was fantastic, she ran through all the important points, she was the best support I could possibly have had…..Clare helped me to understand the employer’s needs and highlight my strongest skills.”

“A further thank you, to you,  for all your help so far, I’d go as far as to say I’m very much looking forward to tomorrow, I’ve done a lot of research so I hope that shines through….Your help to this point has been outstanding compared with other recruitment consultants I have come into contact with, and it’s been a pleasure to have (virtually) met you, you’re clearly a big credit to Wallace Hind Selection.”

“John was brilliant at keeping us informed throughout the whole recruitment process. I have never used a better agency and would not hesitate in recommending Wallace Hind to others.”

“Matt was very professional and polite, he gave excellent feedback and advised where needed….Matt also gave me great tips on how to prepare for my interview…I would highly recommend Wallace Hind to anyone, especially Matt…I would like to thank Matt very much for his help in finding me a role, I could not be happier with the service I received.”

“Clare was professional at all times…..Clare Gibson was amazing, professional at all times and is a natural at making people feel at ease. I am very pleased and would recommend Clare at any time…..Very professional and emails were always sent to confirm meetings and arrangement.”

“I instantly felt at ease when meeting Tracey for the first time…. Her enthusiasm and love of her job clearly shone through….a joy to go through the experience with…. This was my first time doing this process; I could not see how anyone else could have done it better...Big thank you to Tracey for making it an enjoyable experience. Her experience and belief in me was inspiring.”

Mike Horsley helped me find a job; he is the best consultant I have had the pleasure to meet in over 16 years of work experience overseas. He assisted me despite it being the most difficult time of year to find a job…..I am really thankful and I would recommend him without reservations”.

"Wallace Hind placed Julie with one of our PPMA clients; Julie was delighted with the service Mike Horsley provided -  Everything was really well communicated and honestly, Mike made me fully aware of what I was up against with regards to my skillset so I tailored my approach accordingly…I applied for a job with a different agency where I was given no information prior to interview and was not treated like the job had to be right for me as well.”

"We decided to use Wallace Hind for our Operations Manager vacancy upon the recommendation of my colleague.  I was a little sceptical up front, based on "putting all our eggs in one basket" and also how many successes had they had within this kind of field?  The meeting prior to the start of the campaign was extremely valuable and we were able to outline what kind of character we were looking for and what the main challenges would be for the successful individual.  The campaign and literature provided throughout was of a very high standard and we had regular updates to update on progress/state of play.  Our consultant, Matthew Hogg, was professional throughout and provided a great work ethic to deliver a high calibre shortlist.  The end result was a successful appointment in a timely fashion and I would have no qualms using Wallace Hind again in the future, or recommending them to anyone else."

“Thank you and your team for helping us fill our vacancy of Strategic Buyer…..John is a true asset to your team. He works extremely hard, providing us with an exceptional service (even when he is on holiday!) and he always has a positive outlook. He is a pleasure to work with – Thank you. “
