They supported my move back to the private sector, providing invaluable advice about positioning myself and highlighting my transferrable skills. They were also excellent ambassadors for my new employers; my consultant had an in-depth understanding of the organisation and was always enthusiastic about the opportunities in the role, whilst never making unrealistic promises. Direct and straightforward to deal with, I always felt I was getting honest feedback and useful guidance from my consultant. "

    Trevor, Marketing Director

  • "Birchwood Knight has helped me in finding two positions [freelance and permanent] and on both occasions I have been impressed by their integrity and professionalism. It is evident that they take the time to understand the needs of both the recruiter and candidate and put a lot of effort into ensuring that both parties' expectations are well matched. They are very supportive at each stage of the recruitment process and proactive with updates and communication. I have not always found this to be the case with other recruiters and Birchwood Knight really are a credit to their profession. I highly recommend Birchwood Knight to anyone looking for work in communications, or any employer who has a communications vacancy to fill. "
