Adding value – across the whole candidate journey.
Head of HRFood Sector Manufacturer
It has been a real pleasure to deal with you and the entire CFR team. Your professionalism and transparency is very refreshing and indeed reassuring! Thank you very much for getting me to this point. Working with you and your colleagues at CFR really has been refreshingly straight-forward and professional.
CandidatePrinting Equipment Manufacturer
Thank you for all the help given during my interview period. CFR are a credit to the industry they represent.
CandidateAutomotive Component Supplier
Having worked with numerous recruitment and selection consultancies over the years, I welcomed the exceptionally high standards of courtesy and efficiency set by CFR Global Executive Search.
CFR handled my recent recruitment into an Operations Director role professionally and in a friendly manner - for which thank you. Certainly not always the case in the recruitment industry.
CandidateConsumer Goods Manufacturer
Out of all the agencies and recruitment companies I have dealt with over the last 5 months (nearly 20!), CFR Global Executive Search was the most helpful and professional - just what I needed at a very low point in my career.
The Very Rev’d Adrian DorberDean of Lichfield
Thank you for keeping Lichfield Cathedral’s interests in your sights and for keeping us all in touch with one another. I very much appreciate your kindness and perceptiveness in acting as you have and for encouraging us to go down a slightly unconventional route to this bit of recruitment. It has paid off handsomely. Many thanks again for your time and care. We’re very much indebted to you.
CandidateHeat Seal Adhesives Business
Thank you for your time and efforts on my behalf with regards to my application for the Technical Sales Manager's position. It's a shame the final result wasn't what I had hoped for but such is life. However, I wanted to comment on the general professionalism of CFR Global Executive Search. Having had dealings with other consultancies, it was a pleasure to work with you. I have to say that without exception, you are the most professional that I have dealt with.
CandidateLeading Flooring Manufacturer
Although disappointed not to have been further considered for this position, I would also like to thank CFR Global Executive Search for the very professional and personal way my application was dealt with. I have had a very positive experience with CFR and it really does make a huge difference when job hunting to get some positive feedback even if you are not the finally selected candidate.
I am writing to express my gratitude for the fantastic service offered by your company during my recent job search which ended in an offer. During my career I have had many dealings with recruitment consultants both as an employer and employee and feel the service offered in matching the candidate and employer has never been so thorough and professional. In fact having spent the last 6 weeks actively trawling the job market and dealing with recruitment professionals I have often felt more like a commodity than an actual person often having to chase feedback, job descriptions, interview confirmations etc. However the full team at CFR has always been prompt and honest with responses and giving me feedback and information which allowed me to be fully prepared. The fact that you took the time to meet me and your team gave very professional insight to the results of the tests undertook also gave a feeling that CFR also fully understood my own requirements for my next career move. All of the above made what could have been a stressful time a more positive experience. I would have no problem recommending using CFR both in the future as either to any employee or employer and would be grateful if you could pass my thanks to the CFR team.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for taking the time to review my job application. Although on this occasion I was not successful in getting the role of Aftersales Sales Director, I have to admit that I have learned a lot in following the recruitment process you set. It was also a great pleasure working with you and I really appreciate the time you took in supporting my application.
CandidateUK Capital Equipment Manufacturer
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for your help in enabling me to take the next step in my career and move on to a new and exciting challenge at CMB Engineering. It has been a real pleasure to work with you and the team at CFR. The whole process was managed professionally and our meetings and discussions throughout ensured that I had all the detail that I needed. Moreover, the diligence applied to the process, from telephone interviews, to meetings, to psychometrics gave me the added confidence that CMB were committed to finding the right person and so when the offer was made I was in the best position to make an informed decision.
CandidateUK Engineering Business
I have recently been offered a position of Head of Quality for a major company in the UK. The application and interview process was managed in the most professional way that I have ever been involved with by the whole team at CFR. From the initial introduction, planning, opening interview (at the excellent facilities at CFR), to the polished documentation and the support of a knowledgeable and polite backup team providing me with all of the tools that I needed allowing me to concentrate on preparing for the final interviews. CFR are not a normal recruitment agency but a professional team who support both the candidates & the clients through what would normally be a lengthy and complicated process.
Vice DeanChester Cathedral
Just a brief note to say thanks to you and your team for the excellent service we received during the process of appointment for our Director of Operations. Your attention to detail, on-going support of all candidates as well as the cathedral team, made the whole process flow almost unnoticed at our end. Agreeing to undertake the psychometric test ourselves as a senior staff team was also very helpful in understanding why previous relationships worked so well and what was missing now that our previous Director of Operations had left. I think it would be fair to say that this last set of interviews, overseen by yourself, has without doubt been the most thorough, enjoyable and effective interview process we as a cathedral has been involved with over the last four years
Woodard retained CFR to help to appoint a Chief Education Officer for its multi-academy trust. Initially our concerns were that without an established track record within the education sector CFR might be unable to provide a strong enough short-list. In the event we were able to interview an excellent short-list and make an outstanding appointment. After five months in post our Chief Education Officer has already made a profound difference to the atmosphere within the trust, our academies are showing strong signs of improvement and our relationship with the DfE has been transformed. CFR’s diligent handling of the whole process was important and has supported Woodard’s reputation in the sector. The company has subsequently remained in touch with the appointee to provide support if required.
