What our clients say about us...
I have really enjoyed working with Atwood Tate (we have had most contact with Helen Speedy) for our recruitment needs. I can always rely on Helen understanding the requirements of the vacancy perfectly. I feel that Helen works hard to try to source a range of suitable candidates and she is completely honest about candidates' suitability for the role by identifying their strengths and weaknesses - which is a huge help for us. The candidate's profile summary, which is always provided, is particularly pertinent for recruiting managers to gain an 'at a glance view' of each candidate. I have found the staff at Atwood Tate to be very responsive to our needs and timescales, highly professional, honest and actively working on our behalf. I would highly recommend Atwood Tate.
Maryanne Karian - HR Representative, McGraw Hill Education
Atwood Tate provided some excellent candidates for a Production Assistant vacancy very promptly, despite the diversions of the London Book Fair. Both Sam and Claire are very professional and easy to deal with in their approach and I would certainly recommend them to other publishers.
Joan Woodroffe - Production Manager, New Holland Publishers
We used Helen Speedy at Atwood Tate to recruit a Commissioning Editor. We were very impressed by the quality of the candidates. Helen had a clear understanding of our requirements and the whole recruitment process was managed in a calm and efficient manner.
James Powell - Managing Director, Pickering and Chatto
My first use of Atwood Tate was an excellent experience. I was sent candidates who had been selected well for the job description, so I did not waste time sifting through unsuitable applications, and only interviewed strong candidates for the job. Atwood Tate were always quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, and a tight deadline for making an appointment was met.
Eurospan - Steven Lustig, Marketing Manager
Your service was great. Helen was fantastic and she made my life easy for me. It really couldn't have gone better. You found me the perfect person for the role. I would certainly recommend you.
Edward Crutchley - Managing Director, W.W. Norton
When recruiting for a Relationship Executive with a background in publishing, not for profit experience, excellent project management skills and willing to work on a short fixed term contract, we knew the candidate pool would be small and exceedingly hard to find. However, on contacting Claire Law and her colleagues at Atwood Tate we found a friendly team who were diligent and highly credible in terms of service provision and knowledge of the market. Quickly, a fantastic candidate was identified who surpassed our expectations and all of this was achieved in a very tight timeframe. I would have no hesitation in recommending Atwood Tate to others.
Chris Fox - ICAEW, Senior HR Officer
Atwood Tate outperformed all the other recruitment agencies I've used by miles. After a recent job brief they sent over CVs for a selection of excellent candidates immediately, along with comprehensive and clear information about each of them. I ended up interviewing three of them - one of whom got the job. I will be using Atwood for all future publishing hires.
