Client Testimonials

Leisure & Hospitality Testimonial

C2 Recruitment have supported us with the recruitment of Head Chefs, Hospitality Managers and Sales Managers for various units across our company.

The quality and calibre of the candidates presented to me has been excellent based on the brief which I provided.

I have been extremely pleased with the support Amanda Tonks, Commercial Manager and Kirsty Marshall, Recruitment Consultant have provided throughout the whole recruitment process.

They are very efficient, professional and commercially aware and have worked relentlessly to ensure a high number of quality candidates have been presented for interview with a broad range of skills relevant to our business.

I have been impressed with the level of contact from Amanda and Kirsty in terms of confirming dates and times for interview and in particular ensuring that every candidate they presented actually attended for their interview and for providing notice in advance if someone was unable to make their appointment, which was only one person.

As a leading hospitality brand we operate outside of the normal office hours and at weekends and it has been of significant value to be able to communicate with Amanda late in the evening and at weekends to discuss and arrange interviews and provide relevant feedback.

We will certainly be working with C2 Recruitment in the future wherever there is a requirement to source high quality candidates for our organisation and would recommend other recruiters to do the same.

Fashion Retail Testimonial

Amanda is a pleasure to deal with and strives to understand our business so that she can find the best matches for our senior roles.

She keeps in regular contact and is very personable. I would definitely recommend Amanda and her colleagues at C2 to other retailers.

Retail Services Testimonial

As an experienced recruiter myself, I have very high professional expectations of recruitment service providers who work with our brand. Most companies I see don’t meet this mark.

I have no issue with recommending C2 Recruitment as a recruitment service provider of the highest calibre; operating with the utmost integrity, professionalism and attention to detail rarely seen in the recruitment agency marketplace, they have supported us for many years, consistently providing us with candidates not only qualified to ‘do the job’ but those candidates with the potential to succeed and add real value to our organization.

Efficient and accurate, I know that if we give a brief to C2, I can expect a good cache of qualified candidates who meet our requirements.

Julian H – Recruitment Manager, Retail Services Provider

Facilities Services Testimonial

Efficient, quick, friendly and very effective. Made my job as an HR Manager much easier when recruiting managers.

Give the job description to C2 and away you go.

Amanda W – HR Manager, National Facilities Company

Service Provider Testimonial

I had been struggling to find a suitable candidate for a particular role so I contacted C2 to see if they could help. The team got to work straight away, providing me with several good CVs.

They took all the hassle out of arranging interviews for me and when I offered the position to one of their candidates, they even took it upon themselves to obtain references for the candidate to save my time.

C2 were in regular communication throughout the process and I will be more than happy to use their services again when recruiting.

Melanie B – Regional Manager, Leading Service Provider

Leisure & Hospitality Testimonial

I work closely with Russell from C2 Recruitment to place candidates in to Senior Manager vacancies at The Original Bowling Company. Russell has worked exceptionally hard to understand our business and culture and is excellent at sourcing candidates who are the right match for our business.

Our senior roles require candidates who have certain skills and abilities to be able to deal with demands of a complex business and Russell's understanding of what we need is second to none. I would highly recommend working with him, he is helpful, friendly and a great business partner to work with.

Laura Purvis - Recruitment Manager at The Original Bowling Company

Leisure & Hospitality Testimonial

When I was approached by Russell on behalf of C2 Recruitment it was clear from our initial meeting that he has very good knowledge and understanding of the Leisure and Hospitality Industry.

In the six months that I have been working with Russell he has successfully filled 7 of my management vacancies and I believe this is firmly down to him taking time out to come and understand our business and what we are looking for in our management population.

I have no hesitations in recommending the services of Russell and the rest of the C2 Recruitment team

Leeann Craven Assoc CIPD - HR Business Partner at Bowplex

National Hospitality & Leisure Testimonial

I am currently in a general managers position much thanks to Russell, I had been doing my own thing for a while and decided that I missed the many advantages that working for a corporate company can deliver.

this was my first time in nearly 18 years that I was going through the recruitment process as 'the' candidate, Russell arranged everything for me and did not stop short in ensuring that I had every little detail to prepare myself for the different stages of the interview, his professionalism and care put any nerves that I may of had firmly back in their place.

Just before each stage of the process I had an energising good luck text and after each stage he touched base with me to see how I got on and how I felt it went; once I had been accepted for the position he not only phoned to say congratulations but he sent a card from the agency and even sent a good luck message on my first day.

The whole process could not of gone better and smoother, this was mainly down to Russell's involvement and commitment to ensure that I got into the role I had so desired to achieve. I know where i will go should I find myself in that position again, subsequently if I need a position filling then I shall head straight to Russell.

Ben S, General Manager, National Hospitality & Leisure Retailer

Global Leisure & Hospitality Retailer

I would just like to extend my thanks to Amanda Tonks and Russell Thelwell at C2 recruitment for the excellent service they have provided with recent vacancies.

The brief was fully understood, which resulted in some really strong candidates being successfully appointed and due to start our Manager Designate Programme.

Both Amanda and Russell respond promptly and professionally to meet our vacancy needs and I would not hesitate in recommending them and C2 recruitment.

Senior HR Advisor, Global Leisure & Hospitality Operator

National Hospitality & Leisure Retailer

Russell was my recruitment contact, and after working with many other providers, I found Russell to provide exceptional and professional service. He always acted with integrity, kept me up to date and went above and beyond to ensure I was kept up to date.

I was so impressed with his service that I asked him if I could recommend him rather than the other way around. I will now always go to Russell for all my recruitment requirements, as an employee or employer and would fully recommend his services.

Aysen, S. - General Manager, National Hospitality & Leisure Retailer

Leading Premium Retailer

C2 Recruitment and in particular Helen, our consultant, is a pleasure to work with.

Helen has immersed herself in our business and really understands what we are looking for and the differences between each of our brands - working hard to only send me candidates that are a good match, which makes my life easier and that of our hiring managers.

I always strive to be in a place with agencies where I feel confident enough in their submissions that I don't always have to screen them myself before putting them forward to the line manager.

I would recommend C2 Recruitment to any other premium retailer looking to source management talent for their boutiques.
