Who Strategic People work with

What our clients think

"I've spent the past four months building a high quality Analyst/Developer team. We’ve had particular difficulty recruiting SITS specialists. Damien was very helpful, and patient, in helping me. He's been insightful, but most importantly to me personally, he wasn't recruitment-pushy. Looking forward to working with Damien in the future when I need more help with recruitment."

"From start to finish Strategic People consultants where thorough and professional and kept me informed at every stage of the process. They went the extra mile for me to help me prepare my CV for the role and also when it came to the interview with the information they gathered which allowed me to feel totally prepared. I would have no problem recommending any of the Strategic People team to any of my contacts. I am looking forward to a long and successful working relationship with them."

Higher Education Change Consultant

"Damien provides a professional, reliable recruitment service. He is hard working and driven and provides an excellent service to ensure the needs of the client are always met. He takes the time to build strong relationships with his clients and is always open and honest throughout the process, to set realistic expectations for both candidates and hiring managers."

"I have worked with Damien while building the PMO for our Digital First Programme and he has provided some excellent candidates for the team. If you're looking for a recruiter to provide high quality candidates, to a timeline that supports your resource plan, then I would highly recommend Damien and the team at Strategic People to support you in this process. You won't be disappointed!"

Head of IT Project Delivery

"I just wanted to drop you some really positive feedback on your consultants. All of my new joiners are saying what a pleasure it is working with a recruitment team who really shows an interest in them, and keeps in touch throughout the process. X joined us today and she was talking about the fact that you had contacted her yesterday to ensure she was all set for her first day; it's things like that which make a real difference. Thank you all for looking after my new recruits so well, it is truly appreciated!!"

"Strategic have shown consistent delivery of higher quality BA candidates, clearly understanding our requirements better than our previous experience and showing a higher capability to vet candidates and present us with more appropriate individuals to consider for interview."

"They have demonstrated flexibility as our requirements have changed, and a positive can-do, be involved, attitude within the project. The consultant actively tries to understand how the project is developing enabling her to have a selection of candidates on-hand reducing our lead times for recruitment."

Hiring Manager - Business Analysis

"I have been working with Strategic over a period of months to assist in recruiting a large number of permanent and contract candidates. This is a recruitment business I would strongly recommend – they are always at hand to offer a high quality service."

"The service demonstrated by Strategic includes a real sense of customer focus, pro-activity to meet my requirements effectively and strong commercial acumen. The quality of candidates supplied never deviates from the initial requirement and has allowed me to build my business capability effectively. I would strongly recommend Strategic to hiring managers recruiting into a change space."
