Testimonials / What Our Clients Say

  • After viewing my details on a jobsite, Westlakes Recruit contacted me and talked me into considering an opportunity that they were managing for a client. At first I thought they were just another recruitment consultancy, well I am happy to admit that they really know their profession and they can deliver on their words. Within a week they managed to set up an interview and followed it up relentlessly with their client and turned it into an offer. They made sure that I was kept into the loop at every stage thus proving their integrity and dedication to all concerned. I can recommend Westlakes Recruit to anyone who is considering a change in their career and am absolutely sure that they would not disappoint you in anyway. Westlakes Recruit is truly one consultancy that does what it says on the tin.
    Cavendish Nuclear, Engineering Manager
  • Absolutely fantastic service, professional and friendly. Always there to help; helped me through the most difficult but rewarding career change, a joy to work with.
    James Fisher Nuclear, Clerk of Works
  • The post had been advertised for some months with the (nuclear business) nominated agency with little success. We had a defined spec for the role but either people with the requirements weren't out there or we weren't getting the best from the market place due to the rates on offer. After having discussions with Westlakes Recruit and explaining our needs, and a revised hourly rate which was closer to the market rate , Westlakes Recruit were able to identify a number of potential candidates. The candidate was selected for the role as he not only met our essential requirements but also had all the desirable requirements we'd established and fitted into the role and team extremely well.
    Operation Manager
  • As a Recruitment Manager for (consultancy), I have had a very good relationship with West lakes Recruit or over the last 16 months. I currently work in the infrastructure, Industry and Utilities Sector and my business line is very reactive as we are looking for many different facets throughout the Sector, we look for a mix of Self Employed Contractors and Permanent candidates.  The complexity of finding quality candidates is compounded by the geographical spread of the requirements and the timeframes that we both work under, it is a pressurised environment. I have found that Westlake’s Recruit Agency not only understand the wider industry but have flexed where needed with (consultancy), in understanding out ethos and business practices.  They have delivered when needed, quality and volume and also have been able to influence our bid work by providing examples of good resource.  The have personally impressed me with their professionalism and can do approach and meet our expectations with good placement ratios in line with KPI’s Their staff are personable and always have the client in mind, they are market leaders and add value in all areas of my business.
    Recruitment Manager
  • For 20 years, I have dealt with agencies and organisations within the employment and recruitment sector and in my opinion the quality of these services has ranged from between average to quite good, based on a number of reasons. On the odd occasion however, you deal with someone within the recruitment sector who rises above the rest for both genuine and transparent reasons and in my opinion Claire Wilcock falls into this category. Having been a candidate of ‘Westlakes Recruitment’ and in particular dealing with Claire over an advertised position on offer, I can state without hesitation that Claire is one of the nicest, most professional individuals I have known.  Claire also has strong business acumen – which is reassuring to a candidate. Via a job profile, Claire has good ability to match a person’s capabilities to a specific job role.  When she was unsure about any part of this process (some job descriptions and post-profiles nowadays can be both cumbersome and complex) she took time to seek further clarity rather than bluff her way through this, and (to me) this represents honesty and respect.  Honesty is in short supply these days.
    Commercial Manger
  • Westlakes Recruit consistently find quality resources in a difficult market.  In particular the effort that they have made to understand our business, not just in terms of our technical/academic needs but our values and behaviours.  This added value means that we get the right behaviours nearly every time. Westlakes Recruit have also been actively innovating in the way that they collaborate with us and that has given even more valuable access to enable us and potential candidates to understand each other, enabling both parties to make a more informed decision.  We value this relationship highly, Westlakes Recruit are a key stakeholder in ensuring our future growth.
    Operations Manager
  • Westlakes Recruit have provided support to (Nuclear Business) with the recruitment of project controls professionals (planner, QS and cost engineers) for our Sellafield operation. The team worked hard to understand the specific requirements and align candidates to closely match that brief. Establishing interviews and obtaining feedback was smooth. Westlakes Recruit have successfully placed half a dozen candidates over the last 14 months.
