As Head of Commercial Services for Rhead Group from 2012 to 2014, Flagship Consulting was one of principal construction recruitment consultancies I used to recruit commercial staff during a period of significant business growth, working with clients such as the National Grid.

 

Not only were they very proactive and personable, they also provided high-quality candidates at every level, the majority of whom we subsequently employed.  They have an intimate knowledge of the market, allowing them to tailor their service to suit our needs. Over a period of three to four years, we recruited over 40 new commercial staff through Flagship.

I am very pleased to be able to provide a reference for Flagship Consulting. My relationship with them spans almost 15 years.

 

As Regional Director for Mott Macdonald and latterly as a Partner within Ridge, in both roles responsible for the South West region, Flagship Consulting has been the primary supplier of professional resources to me and the businesses for which I have worked.

 

I have taken all levels of employees from them from graduates through to associates in disciplines including project management, commercial management and building surveying   Flagship, above and beyond any other consultancy, has taken time to learn and understand the specifics of the businesses that I have run (as well as my personal preferences) and have provided focused CVs when required. They have provided me with around 20 members of staff to the 5 provided by all other consultancies. I have no hesitation or reservations in recommending their use.

“They understood exactly what I was looking for and what I was trying to achieve”

 

I can honestly say out of all of the recruitment consultants I have met, Flagship are by far the best I have dealt with and some of the nicest guys to go with it!

I was struggling for a while to get into a position that I really wanted. After speaking with Flagship for just 1 day, they secured me two interviews with two of the top consultancies. The first interview resulted in an offer. They are very informative and know exactly what their clients are looking for. They prepared me extremely well for the interview and supported me through the entire process. They understood exactly what I was looking for and what I was trying to achieve. Thanks Flagship – I owe you!!

“Kept in the loop”

 

From the initial phone call right through to the interview stage, I was “kept in the loop” the entire period and felt that Flagship acted as a fantastic representative in translating my message across to ensure I got the best chance possible.

I felt that the process was personal and they fully understood my requirements to ensure my desires were fulfilled as opposed to dealings I have had with other recruitment consultants (I have felt that their processes are generic and lack a personal touch). Keep up the good work.

Alex Broome, Quantity Surveyor

“Excellent customer service”
