“I would definitely recommend Plumstead Bond to anyone”

“I worked with Plumstead Bond earlier this year; the effort they put in really was above and beyond that of any other recruitment company I’ve dealt with and I would definitely recommend Plumstead Bond to anyone.”

Dan Curran – Candidate

“Always Available, Personable and Proactive”

“I have worked with Plumstead Bond on two occasions, once looking for a new hire and the second time as a candidate of theirs.

They are truly one of the few recruiters who do not make you feel ‘commoditised’, always available, personable, and proactively looking for work on your behalf rather than just putting you in their database. The quality of candidates they have is therefore excellent and they don’t put a role or a candidate in front of you without it being well thought through and researched.

I would highly recommend them as recruitment partner.”

Corinna Bishop – Financial Controller, Centrica

“A top drawer recruitment service provider”

“Excelled my expectations”

“Plumstead Bond are an extremely diligent company made up of expert recruiters. They have a fantastic energetic style and possess a wide network of contacts across a wide range of industries. I recently engaged Plumstead Bond to find a multi skilled team. The assignment was provided at extremely short notice and involved a search and selection process that posed, in my mind, a huge challenge. I can report that not only did Plumstead Bond produce the goods but they excelled my expectations. Their professionalism shone through. They are extremely focused and results orientated but do not lack the human touch and this comes across to recruiters and candidates alike. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Plumstead Bond to any organisation looking for a rapid solution to human resource gaps. I will certainly be engaging them again in future searches”

Paul MacGee, Project Leader – Hannover

“We faced a huge challenge… without Plumstead Bond… we would have failed”

“We faced a huge challenge – we needed to source excellent people in a very short time frame, with no time or resources to allocate to the task, and so without Plumstead Bond, their insight, their thorough knowledge of what we needed, and who was available and could and would fit with our organisation and needs, we would have failed in this area and the business would have suffered as a consequence. Plumstead Bond delivered a professional and complete service and with their can do attitude and their constant good humour, and ability to keep the project on track, we now have a team that is second to none, and without which the business would have struggled to maintain the service levels and output. I would have no hesitation in recommending Plumstead Bond.”

Julie Stephens, European Finance Director – Embarcadero

“Only agency I would whole heartedly recommend”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help during my recent search for work after being made redundant and what a breath of fresh air it was to meet a recruitment consultant who actually gave me confidence they knew their stuff. From beginning to end my whole experience with Plumstead Bond was extremely efficient and professional, whilst also adding that personal touch. You found me temp work within a day, always kept me updated and have now found Matt work too whilst he is home from Uni.

I can honestly say that you are the only agency I would whole heartedly recommend.”

“Plumstead Bond had pulled out all the stops to get me this position”

I had previously signed up with several leading finance recruitment agencies and after some five months of looking, without much success, Plumstead Bond approached me with the offer of a three months assignment which led to a permanent credit manager’s role.

Plumstead Bond had pulled out all the stops to get me this position and have been supportive throughout the process.

I would not hesitate in recommending Plumstead Bond to anyone seeking a temporary or permanent role.”
