Hear it from our clients

Citadel Search had worked closely with me to draft a concise and clear specification for the role to be filled. They were tasked with finding a number of high calibre candidates and screening them prior to presenting a shortlist to meet my executive management team. Citadel Search completed these stages swiftly and within a short time, submitted 5 candidate CV’s for review. The quality and experience of each candidate were excellent and each was accompanied with a comprehensive candidate profile. Prior to the interviews, I had originally wanted to short-list 2 candidates to present to my executive management interview panel. The calibre of all 5 was so impressive that I decided to take 4 through to the next stage. Following the final stage, we were able to choose an excellent candidate who matched both our technical and cultural requirements.

I was also impressed by the accuracy of candidates’ profile reports, their capabilities and the rapport Citadel Search had with each candidate. This helped build trust quickly, increasing the pull factor for my organisation. We used Citadel Search effectively in helping us attract our chosen candidate and negotiate a set of terms that both parties were very happy with. In addition, I am very satisfied that your organisation has acted as an excellent ambassador for us. We are very happy to recommend and act as a referee for Citadel Search as a key asset in all recruitment activities.
