Mike Hodgetts, Director – Porter and Woodman
“We are a growing SME employing with over 40 people in Stourbridge, West Midlands. Our long term Accounts Manager had decided she wished to cut her hours down and wanted to retire within the next few years. This came at a time when the company was undergoing quite rapid growth and the last thing we needed was to lose continuity in an important department.
It was important that we found the right replacement at the right cost that could fit into the ethos of our company and bring with them the right skill set to quickly settle in.
We approached Athwal Resourcing after being recommended to them by a business contact. They put our mind at rest by visiting us and quickly understanding the sort of company we are and what sort of person would work well with us. They also understood the importance of our budgetary constraints.
After just seven days Devya had a short list of candidates and CVs for us to consider and by the end of two weeks from our first approach we were conducting first interviews.
We found Athwal Resourcing particularly helpful in the feedback they gave us after the interviews and even when things didn’t quite go to plan with a first preferred appointment changing her mind at the last minute, additional second interviews were quickly arranged and a new candidate appointed.
Athwal Resourcing’s service from start to finish was professional, efficient and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.”
