  • I have found VERTICALITY very efficient, professional & helpful when we have been recruiting new staff. Some of the positions we have recruited required specialist skills which made the search somewhat more of a challenge, however VERTICALITY understand our business and have helped us recruit the right people. I would have no hesitation in recommending VERTICALITY to any other companies searching for new staff.

    HR Manager, Marketing Services / Database Marketing Organisation

  • We have worked with numerous recruitment companies over the last couple of years as our company has seen explosive growth. Only VERTICALITY has met all our needs in terms of screening candidates carefully to meet our specific requirements, allowing us to minimise our recruiting overheads, and by being instantly responsive. They are also excellent at managing the offer process to ensure we secure the best candidates. I'm pleased to recommend VERTICALITY highly.

    Director EMEA, CRM Software Vendor

  • VERTICALITY has worked with us in a consistent and professional manner to help meet our recruitment requirements. They have demonstrated excellent understanding of our company and the market within which we work. We really value the relationship that we have built up over the past few months, trust VERTICALITY to represent our Company positively at all times and would recommend them highly.

    HR Manager, ECM Software Vendor

  • Having taken on a number of candidates over the past few months I can recommend the professional service provided by the consultants at VERTICALITY.

    HR Administrator, Plc Commercial ISP

  • VERTICALITY offer a professional service that has consistently delivered results for us. I know when I ask for their help they will handle a large candidate response and produce a shortlist that only includes relevant, well-qualified candidates with the right interpersonal skills. This level of service means I don’t have to lose time working with other agents.

    Dean Whitehead, Network Services Manager, Plc IT Solutions Provider

  • During Intershop's period of very rapid growth VERTICALITY were one of our preferred suppliers, chosen because of the quality of both service and candidates. We hired nine candidates from VERTICALITY in a period of less than a year and will certainly use them again for future recruitment needs.
