One of the few honest recruitment companies

I would highly recommend PlumsteadBond as a recruiter.

One of the few honest recruitment companies out there, they listened to me and what I wanted, selected roles that would fit rather than try get any candidate into any role.

Angela is friendly, honest and open. She listens to business and employee needs to find the best fit possible and is a pleasure to work with.

“A great supplier & great people

I have worked with PlumsteadBond for a couple of years now and they are not only a great supplier but great people too.

As an in-house recruiter you need an honest view on the market, you get that and more. When it comes to delivery, they are spot on and are my go-to partner for many vacancies.

I will hopefully continue to work with Angela for many years to come.

I would recommend them to anyone that needs a strong partner.
