“Towards the end of last year AFG LAW were recruiting for a new assistant cashier and passed a referral to Paul. Square Peg very quickly made contact with us and identified what it was that we were looking for in a candidate. They understood the skill sets required, and perhaps more importantly the type of person that we were looking for.
They put forward what looked to be an excellent candidate within 2 days of being given the brief. An interview was set up but unfortunately the guy gave back word and even before the interview, decided to stay put at his current job.
In between making the appointment and it being cancelled, we decided that the job role that we originally briefed Square Peg had changed. We passed on the amended job description and again within 2 days or so, Square Peg had identified a further candidate. We interviewed Matt, and after having a couple more chats with him, decided that he was the ideal fit to what was a fairly new role for AFG LAW, offered him the job and he accepted. He has now been with us for approximately 3 months.
It would have been very easy to pass this testimonial as soon as the role had been filled – job done! But I felt that it would mean far more now, several months further on and seeing Matt developing so well in the role.
Square Peg are different to other recruitment companies that we have used in the past. They listened to what we needed and understood the sort of person that we were looking for – both from a skill set and a personality. They also understood the ethos of AFG LAW. Suzanne actually took the time to come out and meet with us and talk to us so that she fully understood what it was we were looking for.
They vetted and only sent through real candidates and not like so many other agencies that will “listen” but then just send anyone through to you. And ultimately sent through what so far looks like being the perfect candidate.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Square Peg Associates.
