Our work

 

Here is a cross section of some of the hiring managers and business owners that we've supported over the years, hopefully illustrating our ability to adapt and help you achieve your goals.

We will be pleased to hear what you have in mind, and to share some of our learning.

"techfolk brought clarity to our plans. We could talk in depth about our roadmap and technology choices. Together, we translated this into a hiring strategy that resulted in hires who reflect our values and are already transforming how we build out. We'd not known we could get this from any recruiter, let alone one that has become a friend of the business."

Martyn Jennings, Co-Founder, Virtual Pricing Director

 

                                                                                                                                

 

"It has been a refreshing change working with Andrew and Vitts. A totally different approach to what we have previously experienced from other recruiters - a few CVs fired in our direction. Instead their thorough approach to really understanding our needs as a start up has meant a much more targeted process and a better fit of shortlisted candidates. We look forward to enlisting their support to further develop the team as we grow."

"I have been a customer of techfolk since Andrew set up the company (and before, in fact, since 2010). Having been a hiring manager using techfolk and also a candidate placed by them, I have complete confidence and trust in their work. Andrew and Vitts make a wonderful team and their skills, dedication and diligence have made the hiring process a pleasure."

"techfolk have been great to work with from the get-go. Andrew and the team adopted an intelligent and empathetic approach to working with Flexys and took time to understand our requirements both at a technical level and also from a cultural perspective. They work and communicate in a clear and consistent way and have taken time and considerable effort to come up with some top quality candidates for some of our key positions. I have no hesitation in recommending techfolk as a trusted partner."

Each time we have found excellent candidates and the help that techfolk has given throughout the recruitment process has been invaluable. techfolk's experience, hands-on involvement and excellent communication throughout the process have meant that we have succeeded with each recruitment drive.

With other agencies, we're frustrated by the lack of attention to our particular culture and the sort of personalities we're looking for, but techfolk get it right every time. It is unusual to find a recruiter that works this hard, and listens this hard. Highly recommended - and worth every penny when you find the perfect hire."
