Client and candidate testimonials

"I've been using Michael Page ever since I was a newly qualified accountant. I value my relationship with them because they’ve taken the time to understand me as an individual, and each time I've used them I’ve been impressed with the range and quality of relevant opportunities which they’ve presented to me. I've always appreciated the support and information the consultants give at the interview stage, and the process has always been run efficiently throughout. Their team approach makes a huge difference - you always feel the consultants are all working together for you. In particular, I’ve found Mark Beacom a pleasure to deal with - he spends the time to really get to know his candidates and because he knows his clients inside out this leads to great matches. I see Mark and his team as an integral part of my career management when it comes to making external moves."

"I have experienced a number of the most senior headhunting and Executive Search companies over the past few months - all were helpful and very supportive of the processes I underwent. However, I wish to indicate that the total engagement of Michael Page Executive Search can only in my view be described as exemplary. The professionalism, support, communications and focus to detail throughout was exceptional. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend this service to others."

"Michael Page Finance helped me both as a candidate looking for a role and also as a client needing help to recruit. I was dealt with by a Managing Consultant who helped me find my role at the Scottish Borders Council and guided me through the interview process. I was invited to come into the office for coaching by her Manager, regarding presentational skills and interview preparation. They were always prepared to go the extra mile and as such I was successful in securing my current role. I hired my first permanent member of staff through Michael Page and have subsequently given them further roles to work on. Michael Page provided excellent service to clients and candidates due to their professionalism, honesty and industry knowledge."
Financial Services Manager

"Having had a relationship with Michael Page Finance as a candidate previously, the high standard of service received then, was a key factor in deciding to use their services as a recruiter. The quality of candidates put forward by Michael Page is always excellent and the strong relationship we have in place means they really understand the needs of our business and what we look for in potential candidates. We look forward to having a long and successful working relationship."

"My contact at Michael Page Finance, was by far the best recruitment consultant that I spoke to whilst looking for a job. I was registered with a number of different recruitment consultants and found that they were nowhere near as good. The only tax recruitment company and consultant in Scotland that I would genuinely recommend would be Michael Page."
Tax Manager

"Michael Page Marketing has the right contacts and keep their ears to the ground to come up with quality positions for their candidates, even in challenging times. I was impressed with their in-depth knowledge of the client, ensuring that they provided suitable candidates for their openings. As a candidate I never before experienced as much support throughout the interview process from an agency. I would encourage everybody who is searching for a job to get their CV into Michael Page, and any employer to use Michael Page to find their right candidate."
Marketing Innovation Manager
Edrington Group
"I submitted my CV to Michael Page Human Resources, and was called within a day to discuss my background and career objectives going forward. I was immediately invited to an interview and was very impressed with the career advice and the consultant's industry knowledge. At the interview I was briefed on suitable positions and an interview was arranged quickly. I found the quality of the briefing and the feedback following the interviews to be excellent. I would say that the service received from Michael Page is probably the most professional service in my 20+ years dealing with employment consultants. I would be happy to use Michael Page as a client and I have already recommended their service to other professional candidates."

"I have worked with Michael Page Marketing on both sides, when looking for staff and looking for new opportunities - and they are great to work with. Our consultant was consistent, positive, diligent, always kept in touch and was generally an all-round pleasure to deal with. Michael Page has secured a place in my list of people who I will always want to do business with category!"
Elena Sutherland

Our consultant spent time gaining in-depth knowledge of the role and the company culture meaning that the candidates put forward were entirely suitable for the next stage of selection and we have had 100% success rate in filling our vacancies. Communication has been excellent, providing a friendly professional and dedicated service. We always felt like we were their number one priority"
Wendy Bower
HR Manager, The Unite Group
"Michael Page is a professional and supportive recruitment company who assisted me throughout my job search and provided advice and help when required. I'd like to thank them for their help and support in my search for a new position last year and for helping me secure a position at Tesco Bank last year. Tesco Bank is a growing organisation and it was a company that I was keen to start with. The service that I received from both was excellent, with consistent communication both by telephone and email prior to interviews, as well as afterwards. It was a pleasure to do business with Michael Page and I would definitely recommend Michael Page to others."
Alan W Park

"I am very impressed with Rick Mattison of Michael Page, from our initial telephone calls and meeting through to interview preparation, guidance and ultimately securing a new job for me. His support, knowledge and enthusiasm has been fantastic. There is no doubt that he goes above and beyond what you may normally expect of a recruitment consultant - I would hugely recommend him."
Sarah Brew
English Commercial Property Lawyer, Dickson Minto
"I found Derek MacFeate, and the Michael Page team as a whole, to be completely professional and diligent in attitude and approach, and a refreshing alternative to most other recruitment specialists I have encountered. Finding a new position can often be a daunting experience for job hunters but by keeping communication streams open at all times, the Michael Page team kept me fully up to date with any new developments and managed to keep me sane when I began to doubt myself! I would happily recommend Derek MacFeate and his colleagues to anyone in need of professional guidance and assistance in finding a new career and would suggest that other recruitment companies copy their approach in terms of client/candidate liaison and feedback provided."
John Sharpe
Head of Risk, Response
"I cannot thank Michael Page enough for helping me find a fantastic new job. Throughout the process they worked tirelessly on my behalf and I am grateful for the help and support given me. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael Page to anyone looking to find their ideal job."
