I am writing to thanks for the support given by Marc on the campaign to identify a suitable candidate for the sales support engineer position at Rotalink. We had a plan to recruit between 1 and 2 new members. We recruited the 1st using On Target and we nearly got the 2nd, but ultimately we decided to recruit a German employee to be based in Germany. We will start the recruitment process in Germany soon. Thanks for your cooperation and effort and due to the good support we intend to come back to you with more positions.
Matheus Vilela, Head of Sales - Rotalink Ltd

Thaleba has been a worthy partner to IMI CCi in our recent search for a new Sales Manager. The process was handled professionally and the key to Thaleba's success was her understanding of what we actually required, and her tenacity and desire which lead to the successful match of a candidate to our company. This was done with just the right amount of "push", meaning I was always happy to answer the phone. But best of all was Thaleba's personality, which remained professional through out, but meant conversation and instructions were easy. Great job and very much appreciated. If needed would would most definitely use On Target and Thaleba again.
Dylan Griffith-Jones, Senior Regional Sales Manager - CCI

Thaleba worked with me recently to fill a role at Thorite. She was extremely skilled at understanding my exact needs and locating qualified candidates. Very refreshing. I have no reservations in recommending Thaleb.
Alan Donkersley, Director - Thorite (Thomas Wright / Thorite Group Ltd)

Tim is an outstanding professional who is very competent at what he does. He has helped me in identifying the next career opportunity. The best thing about working with Tim was the communication with myself and with the employer throughout the process. Tim really understood the situation and managed it really well. I would highly recommend him and wish him all the best.
Nipun Sibal, Commercial Solutions - Pre Sales - Rockwell Automation

Matt helped me get the job I have today. He was very good at what he does and very helpful. Thanks again Matt. Gary Leah, Project Supervisor Multi Utilities - Matrix Networks Limited

Our business requires sales engineers with a variety of skills and On-Target has a strong technical expertise which understands just what we need. We require people with a university background in mechanical or chemical engineering, to those with time-served pump or valve knowledge to hands-on service engineers. Whilst many of our employees are office based we also have a strong area sales base in all areas of England and Scotland. On Target always work hard to understand our needs and to match us with the right candidates. As such, the quality of candidates we receive from On Target is consistently high. Whatever the requirement, where ever we require our candidate to be located, On Target always find suitable, well-qualified candidates that are within the criteria set out by us. The support we receive from On Target in our recruitment needs is second to none. I would have no reservations in recommending On Target to bring new talent to any workplace.

I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Bjorn Johnson and the On Target team for their help and support in securing my new role with Koyo UK Ltd part of the JTEKT Group. In deciding to embark on a career change after 28 years, Bjorn ensured a smooth and problem free transition to my new position and made sure any issues were handled promptly and efficiently in a sensitive manner. I would not hesitate in recommending On Target to other family, friends or colleagues in the future when seeking that next career move. Many thanks.
Mike Talbot, Sales Engineer - Koyo UK Ltd


i just wanted you to know the level of professionalism, courtesy and attention to detail given to me by your Recruitment Consultant Bjorn went above and beyond what I have experienced in the past with what can only be described as your competitors. Bjorn left no stone unturned during my search and commercially walked by my side with the roles he sourced for me. The man is a true gentleman and a total professional. As an advert for On Target Recruitment I can not think of anyone better. Already I have recommended your services to friends and colleagues but could not help in giving them Bjorn's contact details directly as I know he will not let them down. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done.
Paul Maguire

I am looking forward to starting my new job at Texcel Technology and it is all thanks to Marc. I have dealt with a few agents over the last nine weeks and can honestly say that Marc was the best by far and not only because he got me the job but because he kept me up to date with all developments. Marc also has a natural coaching style that gives confidence to candidates in preparation for interviews. I have expressed the above directly to Marc but please tell him I have contacted you.
Steve Cahill-Hayes

On Target Recruitment were exceptionally thorough in finding me my new position. I was constantly kept up to date by Bjorn and Darren, when it came to the interview process we had an in depth discussion about what would happen and when. I thoroughly recommend On Target as they go above and beyond the expected service of recruitment.
Rick Voutt

Osman Mohamed

I'm very happy to say that my experience with On Target Recruitment has been very positive. Marc Gibbs, who is handling my recruitment process, has been very supportive, motivating and highly professional during our collaboration. He has been keeping in contact with me throughout the whole process always giving solid and useful advice. I have been looking for a permanent role after spending years contracting and Marc helped me to feel confident and get a permanent job. I am so excited about my new role and have had such a positive experience, I felt well supported throughout the process. Many thanks for your outstanding service.
Aura Kavale

On Target has done what no other recruiter has done for me in two years - helping me to secure a suitable, permanent role.
Gillian Clayton

OTR Recruitment have been very friendly and informative in helping me find my next venture. I received quick professional responses and with Marc always being available when I required assistance, meant a speedy positive outcome for myself. I am very pleased with how I was looked after and I am very grateful that Marc found me in a wide market of candidates.
Michelle Lawrence

Andy and Darren were fantastic, I heard from Andy midmorning on a Tuesday, I had a telephone interview with the employer at 3pm, and by 5:30pm that day I had the job. I started Thursday morning the same week. Despite it being so rushed (due to the employer's situation), Andy and Darren were very helpful and professional. Thanks, OTR!
John Barton

I thought I would drop you a quick email letting you know about the experience I've had with your recruiter Marc Gibbs. Marc contacted me regarding a role as a Supply Chain Manager, He was very well informed about the role and gave as much information as he had, we went over my CV from start to finish so that Marc was happy that I would be a good fit. Through the application process I was informed with phone calls and emails on my progress. For both my 1st and 2nd interview Marc called before and after giving support and encouragement and advice, he even called on his day off to advise that I had got the role. Working with Marc and your company has been a pleasure from start to finish and I would not hesitate in you guys in the future.
Kevin Hartley

They’re really good especially when you think other recruitment companies. Whenever I called, someone helped me and explained. If they had no clue, they called me later and update me. It was brilliant service. Darren found me and I can not thank him enough because he changed my life by chance.
Pınar Yeniayvaz

I wanted to express how happy I am with the way Marc Gibbs has handled my recruitment process; from start to finish he has been excellent, professional and generally just a very pleasant man. After a 15 minute conversations on the phone he told me he thinks I would be perfect for a potential role, he had as a Field Sales Engineer at Rutronik. I had already been offered a position at another company which meant we had a real time restraint. I had informed the company I needed a week to think about it. Marc arranged two interviews for me within a very short space of time. Every single time he would follow-up his phone calls with an email so I had all the information I need. I was made redundant from my current role so it had been a stressful time for me. Marc made the experience a pleasure. I will be recommending Marc and the company to anyone who is seeking employment. Hopefully I have a successful career with Rutronik and if I ever get to the point in my career where I am recruiting for the company my first call will be Marc. Thank you to your company and especially Marc he's a great asset.
Deryn Hall

Both Darren and Tim. Are very professional and exact in there approach towards placing you into a position that's well suited with a good rate of pay. Thank you both best regards to you both.
David Stevens

I registered with OTR and applied for a role. They really helped me prep for the role and interview. I was able to get a job that I wanted at the end. Thank you Matt Wilson!
Abid Abdul Gafoor

Bjorn was exceptional throughout the recruitment process and I would highly recommend OTR.
Alexander Lesbirel

I applied for a job with OTR via one of the main job boards; dealing with Stephanie Brown who is one of the consultants there. She's been fantastic and her help and guidance got me the job! The process from start to finish couldn't have been easier. They are all very approachable and friendly, whilst still being professional and efficient. Very knowledgeable and nothing was too much of an ask (I'm relocating 250 miles for this new role, so I was asking a lot of questions not just related to the job!). Would highly recommend to all, thanks again Stephanie!
Michael Aaron

Bjorn contacted me for a role which he thought I was suitable for and from the start of the process he was very professional and helpful.
Kaveh Monfared

Fantastic service from on Target Recruitment. Tim Williams kept me informed constantly and relayed all my questions and concerns efficiently. I am now working for a very professional and friendly company who look after their employees. Thanks Darren and Tim.
Rizwan Mohammed

Happy to say that I had an absolutely great experience with On Target Recruitment. I had my employment search managed by a very professional and intuitive recruitment agent, Matt Wilson. He was absolutely brilliant in matching my qualification and experiences with the right company and following up at every stage of the recruitment process. I really like the fact that On Target Recruitment agents are friendly and respond quickly to questions. They stay on top of things throughout the recruitment process and will keep you informed on the feedback from potential employers. Most of all, they are part of the success story to landing my desired job! Thanks OTR!
Ibifubara Aguma

I would like to take this time to thank you and thank a special member of your team, Matt Wilson. Matt is amazing! He's understanding, helpful and wants the best for you. Matt contacted me a few weeks ago, we had a brief chat about what I was looking for, in which areas, industries and more. From the get go, he has been very hands-on and makes the effort to stay in touch just to see how I'm getting on. Matt has been very understanding regarding my situation and has provided me with many different opportunities within the Electrical/Electronic Industry. I've never experienced such amazing customer service from a recruitment agency! I would be very proud of Matt being a part of my team. I would like to thank Matt Wilson for his hard work.

Stephanie Vieira

I would like to thank On Target Recruitment and especially Matt Rayburn for all the his help in securing my new job. Where most recruitment companies offer you everything in terms of service and then deliver nothing, this cannot be said about On Target Recruitment they are very hands on and work with you through the whole process of getting a job. Matt Rayburn is someone I would recommend that you speak to regarding your next career move and like myself you won't be disappointed with the service On Target Recruitment and Matt Rayburn offer.
Alan Porter

Thomas is a rare thing in the recruitment world, creative and lateral thinking able to 'find' me and accurately match my skill set to the client requirements. This is a classic win-win situation where I have the opportunity I have long aspired to and the client has the multi-skilled person they require to take their business forward. Tom is always positive and a great communicator and kept all parties well informed throughout the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to assist with in finding the right role for others.
Stephen Trinder, Commercial Manager - AGD Systems Limited

Yasmine, you've been magnificent! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support and professionalism. You are a fantastic asset to your company and your passion and dedication clearly go above and beyond the call of duty. You are quite simply the best! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Luigi Mannaro

I need to thank On Target. I know from personal experience within recruitment, candidates can be unreliable and your daily workloads change on an hourly basis, but you still committed a lot of time to finding me the perfect position. After our frequent conversations and correspondence, I can see exactly why your company has been so successful. It seems like you foster a sense of responsibility and ownership within each candidate and client, which motivates them to work that much harder toward your company’s success. On my second interview, I was delighted to find out, that the information about the position and package was much more comprehensive than the information given to my competition via alternative agencies. Thank you.
Greg Carswell

Hi Adrien, what a great service. Three weeks from enquiry to job offer. A job that matched my requirements perfectly and a great company to work for.
Russell Sheard

Hi Robert, what can I say! Maybe a BIG thanks is in order. After being made redundant at the age of 53 yrs I was not that confident I would find a new position. In a very short time, after sending you my CV you came up trumps!! I would say that I had sent my CV to many agencies and applied for many positions. Almost without exception I had no feedback, not even an acknowledgement that my details had been received. Then I got your phone call. You must have read my CV as you found just what I was looking for! I start my new job next week. THANK YOU AND YOUR STAFF.
Malcolm Pallatt

Hi Justin, I just wanted to send a note to thank you for all the incredible effort you and your colleagues have made in finding me a position. In fact, it was the very first position I applied for after I was made redundant; no mean feat in this day and age! I know that recruitment agencies actually act for the employer, not the candidate, and with many agencies this is very obvious. However, you and your colleagues have consistently made me feel as though you were my personal aids during my recent redundancy. Every phone call I made was returned promptly on the odd occasion when you were not immediately available, your colleague Darren was obviously completely up to speed with my situation. Indeed, I hardly ever needed to call you, as both you and Darren frequently initiated contact with me, to keep me up to speed and ensure everything was OK at my end. Once again, thank you for your great efforts.
Richard Ross

Adrien, I would just like to thank you for all your efforts in assisting me find my new role. I always found you to be friendly, professional, with a structured approach and I always felt sufficiently briefed prior to any interview. I would have no hesitation in recommending you or On Target in the future.
Mark Proudfoot

When I first encountered On Target, I thought that it was just another sales call from another recruiter but I was soon proved WRONG! You guided me through the process to the point of me getting my ideal career. You were professional throughout and really helped me with my preparation as I was really quite nervous. I would DEFINITELY recommend On Target as the service I received was far and beyond the normal realms! Many thanks.
Allan Garland

Hi Rob, from my point of view , you were personally a star with calls, follow up etc whereas other companies I talked to have not even bothered to come back to me although my CV is very strong. My experience with On Target is very positive and one I would use again in the future if the situation arose.
Paul Tucker

I just want to thank you for the professional manner in which you handled my long journey into the new career I am about to embark upon. Whilst we have never met, I feel that your professional approach served me very well as reminders and prompts to remain professional and closing at every step. I enjoyed your almost embarrassed reminders, given that I am of senior experience and years, and I have to say these stabilised me in each interview and I closed as desired and overcame every objection. Pin this on your brag wall, I am very pleased with every step and look forward to meeting to celebrate my new job. Thanks very much, all the best,
Steve Harman

Many thanks for finding me my new career. From my first interview to signing contracts all happened within 4 days. You took the time to understood my requirements perfectly and I cannot recommend you highly enough. Many thanks for everything.
Justin Wilson

What a breath of fresh air in helping me find a perfect new career. Thanks to your expert advice and knowledge, I was able to secure a fantastic role within a great team.
Anne-Marie Robinson

My name is Nikesh Mistry and I recently used On Target Recruitment to get a job with Keyence UK. I was helped to get this job by Yasmine Shaban and I'm just taking the time out to email you to let you know how helpful she really was, and that I would be delighted to recommend her to any of my friends or colleagues. I used many recruiters previously but none were as personable, and helpful as Yasmine. I felt genuinely cared about whereas most recruiters seem more willing to force you into a job as opposed to genuinely help you find what you're looking for. I just thought she deserved this level of appreciation as it really is the least I could do after the help she gave me.

Hi Matt, I shall recommend you and OTR whenever opportunities arise, as I am very grateful for the amount of hard work and commitment given, in assistance for me to gain employment, at the Company that I wished to continue my career with. Your work is noticeably very important to you and I am sure you will receive the gratification you deserve. Finally I would like to wish you every success in your future and career.
Lloyd Nash

Dear Steve, I write to give you feedback on the service received from OTR, and in particular Tim Williams. I have not been asked by any party to provide this information but do so of my own accord in response to good support received in my quest for career progression. I would have written to you irrespective of success or failure in securing a job offer. This is because the effort that Tim put in needs to be appreciated. He took keen interest to understand my reason for searching new opportunities and what I required in my next role. He followed this up with a structured approach to develop the recruiting companies interest. He effectively positioned my details on your database with employers and came up with innovative ideas, such as asking me to provide him with industrial experience profiles, to match the requirement of the selected roles. I am not the calmest of individuals to deal with delays in the recruitment process. But working with him put me at ease. He was trying his best to keep me up to date with all developments. His efforts in persuading employers to see me had a genuineness about it, which is a rare trait these days. This is now a second successful partnership with OTR and on both occasions your consultants have impressed. Clearly an organization that selects good candidates for the benefit of its customers. I would not hesitate to use your services again in future, although do hope that this will not be required for quite some time.
Behroze Savul

Dear Steve, I would like to bring to your notice the excellent service your Consultant, Matt Wilson has given me as a candidate seeking employment through your company. Whilst being a true professional in his field he has also been supportive as a friend would. I wish him and his new family the very best. I have today been informed by Matt that I have been offered a position with Acrastyle, throughout the process he has been very supportive and helpful. As an experienced technical salesman in the later years of my career I had applied to several well known agencies who cover my industry but yours was the only one who responded positively to me. I was beginning to feel that my age was a negative factor with the others. I have already recommended your company and in particular, Matt to several people who are looking to change jobs. Many thanks for an excellent service.
James Barrett

Dear Darren, I just want to thank you for your efforts in securing employment in my desired field. All the work you have put in has been first class, so far. Also I would like to wish you and your staff all the best for the upcoming festivities and look forward to speaking with you in the New Year.
