Elaine Anderson – City Facilities

Gillian has really taken the time to get to know and understand our business. Starting off supporting us to fill some key People positions she took the time to know exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge and insight of the market and potential candidates was a real asset to the recruitment process. She has supported us in setting up our shared service by using her contacts and arranging for us to talk and meet up with them which again was above and beyond. Due to this level of service we turned to Gillian and her team when we had to mobilise a new contract for M&S Helpdesk and she supported us in filling group interviews and circa 20 positions. Gillian and her team are flexible in their approach with and honest view of the market and their focus is great customer service.

Having recently experienced the recruitment process with ‘Anderson Knight’ I can for the first time say, and without any hesitation that this company sets the standard for all others in this field to follow. I was contacted by ‘Steven Woods’ who unlike most other recruiters that have contacted me was not merely fishing for information but had something to bring to the table. At all times through the process the attention to detail by Steven was second to none and I was impressed by the professional manner that everything was handled.

So often we don’t get feedback for the hard work we unconsciously carry out daily. I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of our appreciation of Anderson Knight and their continued support throughout our recruiting needs.  With particular commendation for Gillian Galbraith for her endless efforts to keep us up to date with their current recruitment candidates, keep in regular contact, assisting with our candidate requests which are triaged with accuracy to match our business needs.  Gillian also gives regular follow ups after candidates start to ensure there are no issues and both parties are happy with their choices.

A consummate professional who treats clients and candidates with respect. Gillian is fantastic at relationship management, juggling well the commercial and people part of her role. Having recent experience of candidate and client side, I recommend only two recruiters, Gillian is one of them.”.

Amanda Lees FCIPD
Head of HR Shared Services / ACCA

I have had recent experience of working with Anderson Knight (David McFall and Gillian Pate) to fill a post which was challenging.  The service I received from David was excellent.  He was engaged and proactive every step of the way and took the pain out of interviewing and appointing for this post.  His aftercare was second to none and I feel he supported the person and me very well. I would recommended them to staff in the University and would be delighted to go to them again.

A call to see how you are and to give an update on the market, advice on interview techniques and John always calls before and after an interview for feedback and to give assurances or advice. He is always professional and reliable and someone you can trust to look after your best interests”.

Louise Reekie
HR Advisor / WH Malcolm

Whilst dealing with David, I found him to be professional, diligent, helpful and consultative at all times. He knew his candidates well, was not afraid to push back when needed, and demonstrated a fantastic knowledge of the market; outperforming in my opinion his traditional competition who have more routes to market. In this market, good consultants that are also trusted business partners are hard to find, however David ticks both of these boxes, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Gillian is enthusiasm personified – the minute you engage Gillian she addresses your requirements immediately, and with boundless energy. The standard of candidate presented is always high, and Gillian has paced several staff with us in the face of some stiff competition. I have no hesitation in recommending the work of Anderson Knight, and Gillian specifically.

Louise Reekie – Savills Management Resources

“Gillian goes above and beyond and takes times to really understand your business, the culture, and what type of candidate would be ideal for the role. Her honesty in her approach to recruitment sets her apart from anyone else in the industry. I trust she will fulfil a role when she commits to it, and equally if a role is not something she can help with, she will tell me from the outset, something I appreciate and have enabled me to build a trusting relationship with Gillian over the years. I have worked with Gillian both as a candidate and as an employer, and I haven’t maintained a long term relationship with any other recruiter quite like I have with Gillian, and that is down to her work ethic and the relationship she builds with her clients."

City Facilities Management

I thought I would take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with my recruitment needs over the past few months As you know, I have had a high turnover of staff this year and initially had issues finding suitable candidates when using internal systems and another recruiter After meeting yourself and getting Anderson Knight on board, you quickly identified 3 suitable candidates for a position that I had available I also had some candidates from another recruiter and some personal recommendations for this same position The work that you put in to identify these candidates was apparent when I selected one of your candidates for my initial vacancy and then another for a second vacancy that I had soon after. My experience with yourself and Anderson Knight so far, would make you my first port of call for any future vacancies where external recruitment is required  

Guy Shirkie
Remote Services Manager / City Facilities Management

Anderson Knight provide a seamless, honest approach who take pride in what they do, the business clearly positions itself in offering a tailored bespoke recruitment service to both candidates and clients. Having utilised them as both a candidate and client I have experienced a high level of commitment not only to offer stage but many months preceding this. The whole candidate experience has been second to none and would highly recommend their services to any jobseeker or hiring manager.

Craig Topley
