Chairman, Wealth Management Consultancy London
Spencer calls back when he says he will, he chases for interview feedback when he promises and delivers the feedback in an honest and constructive way. As someone who is sceptic of head-hunters, I was very impressed by his company’s teamwork and preparation. I feel that I have made some very useful and lasting business contacts with Paul Charles Recruitment throughout the process. Their approach is unique in that its client base consists of both interviewees and interviewers and its approach in this respect is professional and sophisticated.
IFA Consultant, Private Practice London

They provided useful and independent advice and information based on their sound understanding of the Financial Services market. Their friendly and professional approach, with a firm emphasis on getting the best for both the candidate and the potential employer, was a refreshing change from some other recruitment consultants I dealt with. I would, and have, recommended them.
