In 2014 after a decade in recruitment, my candidates received more counter offers to stay than in any previous year in the industry and it looks like the trend is set to continue this year. I believe there is a famous statistic that 90% of candidates still leave employment after accepting a counter offer in […] The post 5 Reasons Why You Should Never Accept a Counter Offer appeared first on Skillsearch Technology.

I think it's not an understatement to say, I would still be looking for new opportunities without Skillsearch’s help and determination. Their relentless pursuit of my interests with employers never kept me far from their attentions. This led to the lining up of several interviews within days of making contact with Skillsearch. Not only were they quick in finding interviews, but the suitability was spot on. They matched both mine and my employers requirements so well that after my first interview I landed a role. I'd barely made it to the train station on my way home as I was receiving an excited call giving me the good news. The friendliness and the genuine care they had for my success was unmatched from other recruiters I had tried. I can't recommend Skillsearch enough!

As a leading Oracle consultancy we initially engaged with Skillsearch around 2 years ago when they were just part of our recruitment supplier network. Over that period they have demonstrated a consistent level of delivery in the niche Oracle space that has led us to dispense with our other recruiters and work exclusively with Skillsearch. We have taken the relationship to the level that they come to us with potential sales leads and in turn we are happy to promote them, when appropriate, directly to our clients.

We have worked with the Skillsearch team for almost three years now as our only recruitment supplier, and with great success supplying staff across all disciplines. They are the only agency that seem to truly understand the interactive space and have a genuinely broad network within it! It is also always a nice touch when we bump into the Skillsearch team sponsoring and attending various social events surrounding cutting edge technologies. Highly recommended!!

I have been working with Skillsearch for 12 months after engaging them as an agency that promised to deliver Oracle Subject Matter Experts. I have been impressed by their industry knowledge and their ability to consistently deliver solid shortlists of candidates, often in a matter of hours, allowing me to cherry pick the best in the market. I look forward to our ongoing relationship developing and I would definitely recommend their niche recruitment service to others.

Giles and the Sillsearch team exceptional recruiters, on multiple occasions he has delivered more potential hires (high quality relevant candidates) to interview than any other tech agency I have worked with. I especially appreciate his capacity to understand our need, and adjust as the process moves forward, with minimal need for how intervention.

Skillsearch has been a great help in finding and securing my position at GTI. They were brilliant for advice and that meant the whole application and interview process went very smoothly for me, and ultimately ended with me getting the job.

I met Giles and Guy at Develop and in the months since the event, Skillsearch has visited the campus on two occasions and worked with our students collectively and individually on improving their CVs and what goes into making a good portfolio. Our students respond well to their positive energy and encouragement, and their passion for games development. Giles and Guy are mad for Unity and because of them, I have encouraged all our games students to become proficient on the engine, and pushed the business case for the university purchasing 20UnityPro licenses. And, best of all, Giles and Guy do what it says on the tin – find our students jobs in games.

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate, BI

Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again

Senior Cognos Consultant

Giles and the team recently helped me find the perfect role in central Brighton. Whilst working with him I was highly impressed with his knowledge of the industry, diligence and professionalism. A cut above many other recruiters I've worked with; every step of the way he showed an impeccable understanding of my skills and requirements and was able to leverage his contacts to find the perfect match in no time at all. I won't hesitate to recommend Skillsearch to my friends and colleagues in the future.
