testimonials

  • Ana and the whole Deverell Smith team have been instrumental in the building of my sales teams. Their ability to identify what it required to make a good estate agent is second to none and throughout the entire process Ana has been on point in her level of customer service, client contact and in recognising a great opportunity when it arises. As a leading London recruitment agency, they have a great depth to their candidate database, but with their eye for talent, they work on a less is more strategy meaning my time was only ever consumed by viable applicants with the right attributes for the job. I will continue to work very closely with all at Deverell Smith to ensure I build the best sales force available to me.

  • Attentive and she fully understands the brief that she is given. I run a busy network of 12 offices and my time is precious, but all interviews arranged by Claudia have been worthwhile and constructive.

  • Deverell Smith is definitely the best recruitment company I have worked with! Honestly a five star service! The staff are all lovely, with all the knowledge needed and the best customer service I have seen ! I would like to thank Gemma and her colleague who lined up many interviews for me, and got offered a job within the first week!

  • If anyone is looking for a position I can’t recommend Gemma Walsh enough…Not only did she find me my perfect position but the professionalism she has is second to none! I have dealt with a few recruiters in the past who will just send you on any interview to try and give you a job they want you to have, not what you want! She listens to what you want and is there for you every step of the way!

    My initial meeting with Deverell Smith was with Gemma and Alex who both made me feel at ease and rest assured they will do their upmost for me. (And they certainly did! I was then introduced to Censa who knew about the perfect position for me. When Gemma and Censa put their heads together and got me in to see the company I couldn’t wait! I have now started in my new position and without sounding cheesy I have also found a friend. I would 1,000,000% only use Deverell smith in the future (hopefully I won’t need to) and would recommend them to anyone!!!
    Good luck to everyone and all the best!

  • Edmund was the recruiter who has placed me in my current position. He has been fantastic from day one, quickly understood what I was looking for, and presented me opportunities that I could describe only as “perfect match”;. I found him very professional, clearly guided me through entire process, and thanks to him, I was able to secure new role within 5 days from our initial call. Big thank you!

  • Edmund cuthbert was fantastic! Only one to really take my search seriously and was constantly coming up with new and interesting roles for me. Felt like he was trying to help me find the right role and not just get me into any job. Highly recommended.
