"I worked with Application Recruitment when I was CEO of xxx PLC, listed on AIM. It was a turnaround situation with a high risk that the company would not be around for long. I needed a CFO and realised it was tough to fill given the lack of certain job security. Through the search, Application Recruitment found an excellent candidate who was fully briefed on the situation. This made the interviews much easier and Joe handled all the candidate’s legitimate issues upfront. We concluded and the candidate was very strong. A very proper service executed very well, in difficult circumstances. I would have no hesitation using Application Recruitment again."


I was very impressed with Application Recruitment's professional approach and their ability to easily identify my key strengths and competencies. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new job as Application Recruitment can not only help you to find suitable a role, but also provide advice on a career path. After meeting, I see more clarity in what I am good at and what direction is suitable for me. Additionally, Application Recruitment is a people person and has a lovely personality that makes the experience of looking for a new role with Application Recruitment a pleasure.


"I have used Tracey Exton for all my recruitment needs over the past 12 months, and it has been an absolute delight. I had in the past always been sceptical about using a recruitment specialist but this has all changed since working with her.

I am particularly impressed with Tracey’s professional approach to recruitment. She is genuinely interested in my business and researched our needs extremely thoroughly, therefore enabling us to find 4 excellent candidates who are now part of my small but fast growing team.

Tracey has been excellent in finding suitable candidates, often doing so in remarkably short timescales. She has even sat in and assisted me during the interview process, which I thought was just fantastic to have someone who is well skilled and professional at conducting interviews.

The most important asset to a business I feel are the staff and, without the help of Tracey, I doubt very much whether the recruitment process would have been so smooth sailing as it has been. She is very personable, friendly and most importantly knows what she is doing. I highly recommend anyone looking for staff to use the services of Tracey Exton."


"I engaged Application Recruitment to find a Corporate Communications Manager. They did just that and I'm pleased to say the person we selected was a first rate candidate who remains with S&N to this day.

Application Recruitment are professional and highly experienced at what they do, which is to recruit for clients with minimal fuss. I have no hesitation in recommending them."


"Application Recruitment is committed, exceptionally hard working and professional. I have found Application Recruitment to be reliable, honest, trustworthy and totally dedicated to their work. Application Recruitment definitely has a “can do approach” and works at a personal level to understand business requirements to ensure complete satisfaction."


"The team at Application Recruitment provide a recruitment service which, as themselves would say, is ‘old fashioned’ in nature which for me, is a great thing and sets them apart from the mass market, impersonal services delivered by many recruitment firms today. My experience of Application has been excellent, they have taken time to understand our business and translate this into what we needed in our candidates. They deliver a professional service for their clients and candidates without any of the pushiness I have experienced for many years by recruiters who are more interested in chasing the fee. They are definitely in it for the longer term relationship rather than the short term deal."


Application Recruitment was very informal and transparent all the way through my recruitment process, which I greatly valued. Application Recruitment gave me an honest and thorough description of the company and the role within it.

Application Recruitment made a point of meeting face-to-face which is something that other recruiters I dealt with did not. Since being successful in my application they have stayed in touch to check in on how I'm enjoying the role. I'd definitely work with Application Recruitment again if my circumstances were to change.


"From the outset Tracey has been outstanding in all facets of the recruitment process as well as being a lovely person with it. I would have no hesitation in recommending this talented lady and look forward to continuing to work with her in the future."


"I had the pleasure of working with Application Recruitment during my career transition period and was amazed at their forward thinking and professional approach. In a highly competitive market dominated by big-data and keyword based automation, Application Recruitment's approach was different; they took the time to meet with me, understand my background, personality, aspirations and expectations, and developed a tailor-made go to market plan aimed at sourcing and securing the next best position in my career progression path. I congratule Application Recruitment on their approach and recommend them to any job seeker and potential employer."
