He has understood complex issues regarding my company very quickly, which has helped make our searches more efficient. His attention to detail and work ethos has been very notable. He takes time to meet and understand both his clients and candidates, unlike many larger consultancies. I can fully recommend Daryl for all your recruitment needs."

"Rex played a key role in running a successful talent pool campaign to identify, evaluate and appoint a number of senior finance roles at Legal & General. The assignment brief was challenging: timescales for delivery were tight and we had set a high quality bar for candidates' technical, as well as commercial skills standards. The brief was executed well and involved the delivery of rigorous assessment days. The days not only resulted in the selection of high quality recruits but also turned out to be a very effective and efficient use of the Legal & General senior management teams time."

Terry Scuoler CBE, Former Chief Executive EEF

"Great team to work with, excellent results, they understood the brief and found an ideal candidate for a tricky role. Thank you!"

Caren Thomas, Consultant Step by Step Partnership

"As a director of an SME, I was hesitant to employ the services of a recruitment agency due to the costs usually associated with this route. I have been delighted with the service received and the candidates that were provided by Rex at NJR were of a far higher quality than I expected, many from some of the biggest companies in our sector. Just as important for us as an SME was the fixed rate pricing, it worked out much cheaper than it would have with traditional pricing policies, and we knew in advance the exact cost of the recruitment process."
