As the Director of a market leading supplier of Consumables to the NHS, I recently worked with Ben to find a new Sales person for the South East. The whole process was managed by Ben, who generated a good number of high quality CVs, that very much mirrored my requirements. I am pleased to say, that this has resulted in me being able to bring on a new member to my team within a 3 week period.

After dealing with numerous recruitment agencies, I can personally recommend Ben. The relationship we have built on trust and professionalism concludes repetitive business for On Target. He provides me with continuous updates and an excellent standard of candidates which have been selected to our specifications. Ben works at a great pace, has a vision and listens to what his client requires. When the business becomes busy and my time is stretched, he is very patient and empathetic. I will continue to work with Ben and it has been a pleasure so far working with him.

On Target handled a recruitment for one of my clients (I was an interim), time was critical. They had a short list of suitable candidates with the experience required and the client recruited in record time (less than 4 weeks). A job well done, subsequently they have been used again for the next recruitment.
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Good Value.

Great experience dealing with Rio at On Target. I was approached regarding a suitable opportunity, guided through every step of the process and successfully recruited. The high level of professionalism and genuine interest at every contact was highly commendable. Thanks for everything On Target!

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how happy I am with the service that I’ve been given at On Target; in particular Issy and David - they clearly work very well as a team and must be getting great results. In what has been a very stressful time in my life the job hunt process has been made easier by the two of them; Issy in particular needs commending for her understanding of my feelings during the process - she has got an amazing personality for recruitment and I’m sure she will go very far. Recruiters have irritated me in the past - these two have broken the mold. Well done and thank you so much; my Christmas is now going to be way less stressful.

Rio is an exceptional recruiter. from day one I was totally relaxed and fully confident in her ability to secure me the right role with the right company and Rio delivered on all of her promises, going above and beyond, assisting in issues that she could of absolutely chosen not to help with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rio. She’s one of the best I’ve worked with in finding a role.

Since November 2016, I have had the pleasure of Amy (Paton), guiding me throughout the recruitment process with Dentsply Sirona. I didn’t come from a sales background but from a dental one and Amy has helped me throughout the interview process and each stage, to eventually, accepting an offer of employment. She has always been courteous, patient and helpful throughout this process and a consummate professional.
I hope her mature professional approach is noted on her staff record and my gratitude passed on to her.

From the first moment I spoke with Khush I was impressed. Khush, Amy and David did everything possible to help me find my next role. I'm pleased to say with their expert help and support I did. I'm now happily working for my new company. On Target did more then just say what do you think of this role. They identified, matched and gave me lots of support and guidance. I cannot recommend On Target enough. To anyone searching for a role listen to them! Thank you again Khush , Amy and of course, David. I'm so grateful to you for what you have done to help me.

May I please take this opportunity to pass on to you my complete satisfaction with your company and in particular one of your consultants Miss Rio Barkley, who over the past few weeks has been responsible for my recruitment requirements. Rio from my professional standpoint has shown a level of dedication to the role at hand that can only be described in my point of view has been very encouraging. Rio has shown an energy and passion for the responsibility of ensuring an exact fit for my profile as can be expected from a person who doesn't know me on a personal level. It is truly refreshing to know that I have had such a person as Rio working tirelessly on my behalf behind the scenes. I am confident in saying that I will be a positive critic on your behalf. I have my second interview on Monday which I am very much looking forward too.

My experience in working with Ben is that he is unique - quite unlike most recruitment consultants. The time spent by Ben discussing my past experiences and aspirations/ambitions to truly understand my situation was both extremely helpful and much appreciated. The focus and genuine interest he offers is quite remarkable. Ben manages to strike a fine balance between the needs of both the recruiter and the candidate - something that most fail to do. The advice and feedback given by Ben is candid and constructive and always received well. I would not hesitate to recommend Ben to both recruiters and job-seekers.

I would like to say how helpful and professional Rio has been. She has been amazingly enthusiastic and supportive. Rio called me about the role at Wellspect and even though I was going on holiday the day after her call, I thought I would miss out on an amazing role she arranged my first interview for the day after my return. Rio helped me when I had queries about my presentation for second interview and never got annoyed with my calls , she was exceptionally helpful. I would like to say Rio is an asset to your Company, I will miss speaking to her. I will not hesitate to recommend Rio or your agency.

I am writing further to your recent placing of me into the vacancy at G&N Medical. Having been made redundant from my last role at the end of September 2013 I had spent several months very actively job-hunting. As you know, looking for a job is in itself a full time job! During that period, I interacted with numerous recruitment organisations and have to say that with the exception of yourselves and maybe one other, it was a pretty unfulfilling experience. You ensured that at all times I was kept up to speed on developments in a very timely manner. Since joining G&N Medical I have received very positive compliments from within the company, again on your attention to communication and professionalism. I know that you/I was successful in filling the role at G&N Medical but feel that had you/I not you still would have managed this in a very professional way. Thank you for everything and I wish you every success for the future.

Dear Steve, I would like to first of all thank you and your wonderfully helpful team at On Target Recruitment in finding and placing me within Crawford Healthcare as a territory business manager. Being fresh out of University it was evident to me that finding the perfect career would not be as easy as once promised during my studies! However, my thought process was significantly altered when I began contact with one of your senior recruitment consultants; David Gray. From my initial application for a different role David was extremely friendly and helpful, he really made it clear to me that he was actually interested in who I was and what I was looking for (unlike other recruitment consultants from other agencies I have had dealings with!). He really made me feel like there were jobs out there and he did everything within his power to make sure he found the right role for me after the initial application was unsuccessful. We remained in regular contact and David would always be emailing me and updating me with current opportunities. As soon as the position at Crawford became available, due to someone pulling out of interview, David immediately alerted me and gave me all the information I needed to go into the interview as prepared as I could be on such short notice. Throughout the entire period of interviews and days of shadowing, David was always contacting me and making sure I was alright with everything that was going on. I managed to land the job and I honestly couldn't be more content with the support I received. It's not an exaggeration when I say that David is by far the best recruitment consultant I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I would like to end on thanking David for everything he did for me, he knows how happy and grateful I was when I spoke to him (rather giddily on the phone after I found out I got the job!), and to thank everyone I spoke to at OTR. What a brilliant team.

When I first encountered On Target, I thought that it was just another sales call from another recruiter but I was soon proved WRONG! You guided me through the process to the point of me getting my ideal career. You were professional throughout and really helped me with my preparation as I was really quite nervous. I would DEFINITELY recommend On Target as the service I received was far and beyond the normal realms! Many thanks.
Allan Garland

Many thanks for finding me my new career. From my first interview to signing contracts all happened within 4 days. You took the time to understood my requirements perfectly and I cannot recommend you highly enough. Many thanks for everything.
Justin Wilson

I just want to thank you for the professional manner in which you handled my long journey into the new career I am about to embark upon. Whilst we have never met, I feel that your professional approach served me very well as reminders and prompts to remain professional and closing at every step. I enjoyed your almost embarrassed reminders, given that I am of senior experience and years, and I have to say these stabilised me in each interview and I closed as desired and overcame every objection. Pin this on your brag wall, I am very pleased with every step and look forward to meeting to celebrate my new job. Thanks very much, all the best,
Steve Harman

Dear Steve, I just wanted to write to tell you how impressed I have been with OTR and in particular David Gray. After 18 years in publishing and wishing to change direction David saw it was worth a punt and really worked very hard to secure a fantastic job for me and I would like to say that he does OTR proud and I will certainly recommend him and OTR to anyone looking for employees or employment.
