Interim OD Lead

Yes I would give the service I have received as a 9/10 - when compared with other recruiters but certainly as an approach and recruitment process Vertex is very good. I have personally spoke to Lewis and a recruitment colleague who I have to say were very professional, very clear providing timely feedback and next steps which is important as a candidate. Good communication skills demonstrated by both professionals in verbal, email and text. I would certainly recommend Vertex moving forward and most certainly recommend Vertex to Clients looking to place key people into their organisations and Change teams. I always look at define, attract and select as a 3 step process in candidate selection.. Lewis certainly scored Highley on all 3 stages from my perspective

I worked with Danielle for 2 years where she supported me with building my team of DevOps consultants across Europe. She found a way to embed herself into the team, understand what I was looking for and present a solutions which worked well and matched my requirements. I certainly recommend Danielle and would be more than happy to work with her again in the future

I would definitely recommend Jude and Vertex. Jude is one of the few people who takes time to investigate the market and also the individual’s concerns rather than just matching job keywords to CV’s.
