Testimonials

We care about what people think. We ask for feedback from every candidate and client we place, as well as our team. It keeps us on our toes and most importantly, ensures our clients, candidates and team get the best from us. Here is what some of our clients and candidates think of us…

Managing Director, Blackburn & Co.

“After using a number of recruitment companies we found the approach by Capstone to recruitment refreshing, honest, personable and professional. Their team listen to us and identify people that are suited to those needs, alongside our culture, and provide valued feedback and support to the candidates to guide them to the right decision. Have yet to find anyone that competes”

Director of Cost Management, Global Engineering Consultancy.

“Capstone are my first port of call when I'm recruiting. They understand me and my business and work in partnership to resource my requirements. Capstone are experts in their field, have a strong network of candidates and always offer valuable market advice. Their service is excellent and is based on speed, efficiency, honest advice and matching candidates closely to my requirements. Whether it's freelance or permanent needs, Capstone are able to help.”

Director, Quantem Consulting LLP

"I have found the service that Matt is providing to be very professional and Capstone are proving to be a reliable consultant to us to the point where we have been giving client referrals to them"

PMO Programme Lead, Global Chemical Manufacturer

“Capstone really are a different organisation, really friendly and engaging, right from being greeted by reception to account management or working out strategy with Sarah it’s been a really pleasant and enjoyable experience and I really look forward to developing these relationships in the future.”

Graduate, Equitix Ltd

Nicole was crucial in helping me gain a position. I went to see her on Tuesday the 26th of September and she instantly made me feel like I was a priority to Capstone. I received a formal offer from Equitix investment management within 3 days of this date. She was totally professional in preparing me for the interview and has given me additional support since I received the role. I would recommend her to anyone.

Acquisitions, Hutchinson Property Group

Nicole was a delight to work with from start to finish. Having previously had a bad experience with pushy recruitment agents who deploy scatter-gun tactics Nicole was a breath of fresh air. Nicole’s demeanour is professional polite and approachable. A real class act and a credit to Capstone. Would recommend to applicants and commercial clients alike.

Surveyor, Vail Williams

Following my first meeting with Nicole, she was proactive in finding me opportunities based on my requirements and I was successfully placed within another firm shortly after. She kept in close contact throughout the process, was extremely professional and personable and has maintained this even following commencement of my new role. Nicole was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a new opportunity.

Project Planning Consultant

"I have found Sarah and Capstone to be exceptional in seeking a position for me and by far the best agent I have ever encountered"

Project Manager, Opera

"Having worked with Rob twice, I had no hesitation using and recommending Capstone. He is honest, swift and has a good client reputation which is very reassuring"

Recruitment Advisor, Knight Frank

“Rob, Celia and Nicole at Capstone are certainly our ‘go to’ recruiters when we’re searching for the best candidates in the market. Their honest advice, coupled with their personable nature make not only the recruitment process simple but effective. I feel confident that the Knight Frank brand is being well represented through Capstone and I look forward to continuing the relationship long into the future.”

PMO Programme Lead, Global Chemical Manufacturer

“Having sourced work through my network for the last 20 years I met with Sarah Davenport at Capstone. Sarah has been amazing to work with and we have built a really good relationship in a short period of time. This is all down to Sarah’s engaging and probing style. Sarah really took the time to understand the context of my CV and work out what drives me. I very quickly went for first and second interviews with A list consultancies and employers who had programmes to deliver with FTSE 100 companies in the UK and across EMEA. Finding one perfect role would have been great, but Sarah was able to find two which gave me the ability to really hone in on what I wanted to do and what was the right role for me to develop my career and build my CV.

Building Surveyor, National Trust

“Celia has consistently been a pleasure to deal with; she is warm, friendly and approachable, yet also takes the time to really listen to and understand her client's requirements. She took a very specific brief from me and surpassed all expectations in first finding a role which met the brief and then supporting me through the recruitment process. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Celia to any Building Surveyor in search of a new role. Thank you so much for all your invaluable help securing me a job I love!”

HR Operations Manager, Vue Entertainment

I have had the benefit of working with Sarah on a recent search for a Head of Property based in Hamburg for our German business. I felt that Sarah was genuinely an extension of my team She dedicated herself to truly understanding our requirements both in terms of technical expertise but also culture fit for the business. I never once felt that I was getting a sales pitch. Sarah was transparent and honest at all times. She fully understood what we were looking for even though it was a little challenging. Instead of presenting me with problems and telling me the search would be difficult, she outlined the types of challenges we may encounter and her recommendations about how we may be able to get around them or approach things from a different angle. I had complete faith that when the shortlist was delivered, it would be of high quality and I was not disappointed. The detail in the candidates summaries provided by Sarah was exceptional and the candidates were exactly what Sarah had described. It is rare to find a head- hunter who truly takes the time to work with you as a partner and understand the culture of the business. I have no hesitation about working with Sarah again, in fact we have already given her another role based in the UK.
