These positions were very important to our company’s growth plans, they were also technical in their nature and each specific in their own way.

My observation is that RMG put in the effort to be helpful and relevant, two valuable qualities to look for in a recruitment partner. The interview with Joshua was among the best I've had. It was far from scripted and each discussion point led to more detailed questions.”
DW, Placed Candidate – Director of Projects, Eminent Sports Group (ESG)
“Following a recommendation, I contacted Giles at RMG to discuss my situation and get some advice.
RMG took the time to understand my experience, competencies and objectives. They leveraged their broad industry contacts and initiated targeted approaches to suitable companies on my behalf. This led to a number of exploratory discussions and interviews which gave me the opportunity to examine the best options for my next step. Finally, I joined a major German Medical Device business in a senior marketing and commercial role.
In my experience this level of proactivity and diligence is rare in the recruitment industry, Giles and RMG delivered value for me and my new employer.”

I’m not sure how I can praise Chris anymore, I’d been through a stressful time changing jobs and he was excellent.”
JC, Placed Candidiate - Territory Manager

Having entrusted some important – and specific - recruitment campaigns to Josh across that period I am pleased to say that he has always delivered.

Christine Davies, Candidate - Product Marketing Manager
“Having first met Giles around the time I was setting up my paediatric pharma company in 2011, and subsequently keeping in touch throughout the growth of the business to our first commercial launch in 2017, it was a straightforward decision to ask Giles and the team at RMG to support us in finding our UK commercial lead, a strategically important addition to the team.
Giles and the team at RMG possess excellent knowledge of the pharma commercial sector and took time to learn about our specific niche in paediatrics, resulting in a highly bespoke service, with a well-defined candidate profile shaped by Giles’s detail driven, highly-professional style.
The candidate shortlist was impressive, and it became immediately clear when we started interviewing the candidates that Giles had positioned our company and the job opportunity very well. We’ve appointed our UK lead and I’m looking forward to working further with Giles and RMG as we continue to build our team across Europe.”

I was honoured when Chris spoke to me the first time about the job. But was uncertain about a change in career, but after sitting down with him and discussing where my passions and dedications lay, I felt proud to take the interest further, even though for me and my family I had certain job specifics I required for me and my family, Chris supported me to ensure that the final decision was an honest and accurate one. Many thanks.”
Andrew Mayes, Candidate, X-Ray Applications Specialist at Toshiba Medical Systems Ltd
“An excellent level of professionalism from Anita throughout the whole process.
Anita was both supportive and drove the process to get a conclusion for me quickly, as personal circumstances needed this. I had received an offer from elsewhere over the Christmas period, but Anita stuck with me, which speaks volumes!
Anita has an open and honest approach, says it as it is (in a good way) and down to earth... too many recruitment consultants are simply salesmen, I appreciate Anita for not being one of them.”
Andy Lee, Group Supply Chain Planning Development Manager

Always professional and friendly. Chris always remembered everything I'd said previously to support our discussion, I didn't have to repeat anything and he never tried to change the facts

I didn't feel pressured into anything like I was expecting to be and Chris always followed up on things as promised.”

He is very knowledgeable, polite and demonstrates exceptional professionalism at all times.”
Simon Shakespeare, Managing Director - Shakespeare Pharma
“I was specifically impressed with Giles Hampson’s knowledge of the business and the role in particular. Giles was very supportive throughout the selection process, organised & knowledgeable even to the extent of offering his time to provide feedback on a presentation during a bank holiday weekend and taking my calls ‘after working hours’. Giles certainly went the extra mile to provide support.
I liked that the first interview (with Giles) was conducted in a private meeting room rather than in a public area were there would be distractions and high noise levels.
Support given by yourselves was second to none compared with other recruitment agencies.
I would highly recommend your services.”
Tracy Southon, Candidate - General Manager
“Having worked closely with Josh last year when he recruited me to Medtrade, I knew he would be the right recruitment partner when I had any subsequent requirements. This situation arose earlier in the year and we commissioned Josh to recruit a Distribution Manager for our Trauma Division.
Josh managed a thorough process and kept me informed throughout. Following a detailed project debrief we were able to select a shortlist and the eventual result was an excellent hire that I am sure will add tremendous value to our growth goals. I look forward to working with Josh again in future.”
Geraint Lloyd, Business Manager – Trauma - Medtrade Products

He has been informative professional and supportive but has managed to find the balance between being interested and harassment! There are many agencies who harass you both as an employer and as a potential employee Chris has found the balance and has been a great intermediate in helping me come to the right decision with the role and also allowing me the space to make the decision. I would be happy to utilise his skills moving forward as an employer”

RMG, having been recommended, worked closely with us. Understanding the business needs and culture they were able to find the right calibre of candidates for ‘Pelican’. RMG’s support continued right through to the successful candidates joining both companies.
We are delighted to be using their services again as business opportunities continue to develop.”
Assistant Managing Director, Pelican Healthcare

He gave me all the information, which helped me make my decision to move forward.”
CK, Placed Candiate - General Manager (Bristol), Berkley Care Group
“Thank you for your response Anita and can I complement you and your organisation for the way you have handled this process. If this is reflective of your approach, in not only handling your successful candidates but also those who perhaps did not get that far then it is a credit to your procedures. I am aware of agencies who only seem interested in those people who have an impact on their revenue streams having dealt with them both professionally, through my own organisations and also personally when I have been seeking pastures new. This has not been the case throughout this particular assignment and you have made even my unsuccessful application a positive experience.
I promise to keep in touch and will be recommending you and your company to any of my previous/current or future businesses in handling our recruitment requirements in the future.”
Paul H, Candidate
“This was my first experience of working with RMG and the experience was extremely positive throughout.
The main factor for my positive experience was undoubtedly down to Anita Caldwell. During my working career predominantly around the Sheffield area I have worked with many recruitment agencies, however I have never been made to feel the same way. The service given had a more personal touch, apposed to a conveyor belt approach from others.
I had recently moved employers previous to my latest position. Unfortunately this did not work out as expected as myself and my previous employer were not aligned and correctly matched. Although I did have a site visit the exposure was very different to my current role when I eventually started. The approach I feel was that the recruitment agency were competing against competitors to secure the business and place a candidate with the prime objective of winning the business, and not with the clients own needs and requirements as the primary function.
Anita has spent a lot of time with me over the phone and emails (when I was unable to talk), reassuring me and answering any questions I may have. This helped me make the correct decision and join Recticel as without Anita's detailed, thorough and professional approach I probably would not have made the jump to a new industry.
I plan to have a long and successful career with Recticel, however if I ever need the assistance of a dedicated recruitment professional then my first port of call will be Anita. Rest assured any previous and current colleagues requiring the services I will definitely recommend Anita and RMG. Thank you once again.”
Mark Jones, Production Manager - Recticel
“I first used a recruitment company due to a lack of time and disappointment with the calibre of candidates previously interviewed. I specifically chose RMG because I was confident they could deliver a competent shortlist of appropriate people to the profile and skill set we had created. On every occasion I have used RMG I have been impressed with the candidates’ fit to the profile. The successful recruits are now helping to raise the professional standards in my company. I would use RMG again for any further requirements.”
Richard Griffiths, Sales & Operations Planning Director - Biomet Nederland BV
“We have worked with RMG to recruit our new sales team. Their knowledge of our industry and the leading sales people in it is excellent and has assisted us in finding and hiring the very best. With their help we have recruited some top people. They are swift, efficient and reliable we will certainly call on them again when we have this need in the future. The headhunting approach has the advantage over a recruitment agency that the best staff are approached whether or not they are currently looking for alternatives.”
Patrick Eraut, CEO - Complan Foods Ltd
“Just a quick note to thank you for all your help in our recent recruitment programme for Demand Manager within our Supply Chain function here at Müller. Thank you to Anita and the team at RMG for a very well managed process, and for keeping us fully in the loop on your progress as we went along.
As you know, the organisational changes which were taking place within the function here and thus the decision making process at our end was at times difficult to manage, and I would like to thank you for your flexibility in responding to our changing requirements and sourcing candidates who fitted both the role profile and culture of our business.
The Supply Chain Operations Manager also sends you his regards and thanks.”

Your professionalism, attitude and service is genuinely second to none. It is very rare to have felt so supported in a job search.

Finally I would like to add that any applicants I hear if they will be sent to you. Thanks for everything.

Seamus Halton, Chief Executive - Berkley Care Group

Jenny Fuller, Operations Director - Berkley Care Group”
“Oliver, I thought the RMG experience was very good. The initial interview was professionally conducted and the questions you asked indicated that you had a very good knowledge of the role profile…the whole experience was motivational and resulted in my acceptance of the role. I am sure we will work together in the future.”
“RMG have been a pleasure to work with, from the first networking contact, professional approach and support leading to my first interview, effective communication throughout the recruitment process which led to a great opportunity and appointment, rounded off with follow up calls to see that I settled down in my new role whilst checking that my expectations were met as promised. I have no hesitation in recommending RMG for their dedicated support and focus on both clients, the employer and potential employee.”

“As this was my first recruitment since becoming a manager I was keen to establish relationships with RMG to ensure that they understood exactly what I was looking for. My initial impressions were excellent and my first meeting with Giles Hampson was arranged.
At this meeting I provided Giles with a clear brief on the type of person I wanted to recruit emphasising on the key areas that I felt were essential for the role. This meant that the original BDM role profile and advert needed to be changed to encompass my requirements. Giles interpreted my requirements exactly and the brief that was sent to me for approval was exactly what I had asked for.
This then resulted in Giles presenting 5 candidates for first interviews with me, 4 of which I decided to take through to the assessment day at Calea. Following the assessment day I felt that I was in a very strong position as I had 4 excellent candidates and struggled to pick which one I wanted – a very strong position to be in.
We offered our first choice candidate the position and she duly accepted.
I found the whole process very professional. RMG communicated with me at every stage and I was aware of where we were in the process at every stage. Our candidate joined us in March this year and is proving to be an asset to the team already with extremely positive feedback from our London customers and our internal teams.
I was extremely satisfied with the service received from RMG and in particular Giles Hampson and would highly recommend them for future recruitment requirements.”

“I had to recruit an IS Manager to become a clear leader of any IT project within my organisation. I thought of using a specialist IT recruitment company in order to screen the best IT specialists on the market. After some setbacks I became cynical of the whole process of IT recruitment and went back to RMG (who I use for my qualified Finance recruitment and wider disciplines). RMG has always listened to my company’s requirements and matched them as well as they can – and again they provided the right candidate for the IS Manager Role.
It’s been a challenging first 12 months, but the chosen candidate has managed to make an impact on our relations with the current IT service providers. The Manager has brought the right IT experience to the business which my company did not have before. He gives a clear view on which IT projects to take on, or not to take on, and has a large network of IT contacts. I am sure that with his drive and positive outlook we will manage to build a platform for growth using the latest technology which will assist our company to become a leader in its field. The Manager’s knowledge and background will not only improve the way we collaborate and communicate as a company, but it will also improve our end user customer experience.
I was very pleased with the screening that the RMG team performed to ensure that the selected candidates they offered were suitable for the position. I would have no hesitation in recommending RMG also in a field of IT Management recruitment.”

“Oliver worked hard to secure me an interview, despite my approach about the job being slightly late on in the recruitment process. He liaised with the company well and was able to communicate my experience and desire for the job, to ensure I was given an opportunity to impress at interview.”
Adam P, Candidate
“Having contracted RMG to address the recruitment of a position we had previously had a few issues with, from the first briefing to the end of the process, everything ran as smoothly as possible. As the recruitment lead Giles kept me up to date with progress throughout and provided a very strong short list. Very professional and efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Andrew Wilcher, General Manager - Medartis Ltd
“I have worked with Anita over recent months and during my search since I left my previous employer, I have interacted with a range of recruitment ‘professionals’.
What I can feedback to you is that Anita at RMG has been head and shoulders above any of the other individuals or organisations I have dealt with. She is a highly professional individual who has been honest and direct with me but most importantly has excellent communication skills and ethics. Unlike many others in your industry, she has always provided excellent communication with me and I am sure also with the clients. Even if the news is not good, if she has said she will call or e-mail, she does, without fail.
I believe she makes a very honest and fair evaluation of individuals and clients and genuinely tries to match the right people with the right positions. She has a high level of integrity and is definitely someone who builds strong and long term relationships with clients. She has been invaluable in my search and I thank her sincerely for that.
To me she is a benchmark for a Senior Search Consultant and a credit to your organisation.”
Mark S, Candidate
“Chris Bate matched the job brief given to him over a year ago retaining me as a candidate. His support and advice through out the recruitment process was above and beyond and was a major contributor to me gaining this position a true credit to RMG.”
Curtis Y, Placed Candidate
“I just wanted to thank you for all your advice, support and opportunities over the last few months because you have helped me massively from me being a fresh graduate to someone actively seeking a medical sales role. If I require any help in the future then you will be the first person I come to and I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know looking for opportunities.”
Sam Podmore, Graduate Candidate
“Whilst I was ultimately unsuccessful in obtaining the position Anita put be forward for, this does not detract from the way she supported me through the process. From my first meeting it was very clear that Anita put in additional effort to understand my skillset, career ambitions and, uniquely, my interpersonal skills. I was a slightly 'left field' proposition for the position in question and I felt Anita genuinely had the interest of the client balanced with my personal goals when putting me forward.”
Assistant Director, Big 4 consultant
“We have retained RMG to assist us in the process of recruiting sales specialists. Giles and his team have done an exemplary job throughout and have successfully 'narrowed the field' from a good pool of high calibre applications meeting our selection criteria.
RMG assisted our HR department and myself in planning and organising the initial and final interviews. I am impressed that they have been able to actively source talented candidates from both within and outside our traditional market place in order that we can appoint the best individuals.”
