Wayne Hemmings - Group Learning & Development Manager
Nicola worked with us to source candidates against an extremely demanding requirement within a limited market. I can’t fault Nicolas focused and professional approach. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicola. Nicola’s key strengths and the differences that sets Nicola apart , are a personal approach and a determination to deliver.
Paul Carter - Data Analyst
Steve has been a fantastic asset in the development of my career by helping me take the next step up as a Data Analyst for The Gambling Commission. From start to finish Steve has conversed with me across a wide range of mediums which include phone call, WhatsApp and even face-to-face for lunch. He has helped me achieve a position that I personally wasn't expecting to achieve and that has subsequently fast tracked me in the world of data analytics. His level of attentiveness and devotion to his role has enabled him to develop a closer relationship to me and other clients; far beyond the normal expectation of a recruiter and therefore deserves this recommendation.
Neil Gittens - CRM Manager
Would 100% recommend Steve. Work ethic is fantastic. The thing that sets him out above others is that he doesn't just "carpet bomb" the market, he specifically targets candidates and speaks to them before making an educated assessment. To be told "I'd like to speak to you first to see if you fit the company I'm working with" made him stand out to those that just fill up inboxes with job specs. Also made me feel like he'd taken time to read my profile first (unlike some). Add to the fact that he's actually an alright guy.
Ian Flower - Propositions Manager
I engaged Nikki and the team at Culture when moving from permanent to interim contract/consultancy roles. I can only say positive things about Nikki from our first scoping conversation right they way through the process she has great communication skills and asks the right questions. Nikki always delivers on promises, keeps you updated at all stages and understands differing perspectives to reach optimal outcomes. She worked with senior client stakeholders to get me meaningful feedback which really helped in the latter stages of the interview process. This was invaluable in helping me land my first contract.
Mart Hunter - Head of Data & Risk
I work as a Senior Manager in a data team for a regulatory body. Steve has consistently found us quality candidates for our growing team, many of which we went on to make offers to. Fully half our team are here having been sourced by Steve, and the effort he made to understand our requirements - and more importantly, the type of people we were looking for - were invaluable in our successful recruitment campaigns.

Beth has provided me with clear and unambiguous advice and has shared her wealth of knowledge with me when I have asked for assistance or support. I find Beth works in a calm but assertive manner, is tenacious in her approach, sometimes being imaginative in finding solutions to obscure events or circumstances, yet always within the auspices of a highly competent HR professional.
Suzanne Bridges. Head Of Marketing - National Express
The Culture Recruitment team placed me in my current position of Head of Marketing Services at National Express in October 2018. I was approached by Laurence immediately upon applying for the role and given a comprehensive telephone interview to ensure the fit was exactly right before putting me forward for a face to face interview with the NX Marketing Director. Team Culture then provided regular updates throughout the decision making process and further interviews with the Commercial Director and Managing Director before I was offered the position. I would strongly recommend Culture to both candidates and clients as they were so supportive throughout the recruitment phase, communicated clearly and continually, and undertook all necessary due diligence to guarantee the candidates they put forward were a perfect cultural, ethical, knowledge and skill set match.
Sam Lombard Managing Director - ERIKS Integrated Solutions
Jamie was fantastic from start to finish. Very open about his clients expectations, feedback, and focus. Helpful with advice on positioning and fit. Without his help I could not have found and secured the great role I now have. Thank you!
Peter Smart Channel Director at Brammer Group
I’ve worked with Jamie as a recruiter for around 12 years now. His approach was always different to other recruiters that I’d been working with before, in that he really took time to understand the company, its ambitions, the culture as well as my own working style, ensuring there was a great fit in the business not just a tick in the box for a CV. He goes so much deeper than just a regular brief. When I think about the talent I’ve recruited over the years, the majority of the really great recruits have come through Jamie, and it’s no coincidence that they have all gone on to great things. He knows how to find great talent but more importantly, he gets to know what behaviours and personality is going to work for you, ensuring you get a great shortlist of the right people. This is why I still go to Jamie for talent after 12 years. I’d highly recommend him to any business looking for recruitment
Richard Davey Head of Customer Success at Rant & Rave
I was impressed by Jamie's ability to look beyond the obvious and recognise the transferable skills of a job seeker and how they match employers' needs. He was the ultimate pro; reliable, trustworthy and gave sound advice. A pleasure to work with and someone I would certainly recommend to others.
Tina Robinson Product Group Manager, Heritage Bathrooms
I have worked with Jamie on a few occasions over the years both as a candidate and client. He is great at listening to the most important factors and matching people and businesses, particularly in relation to culture fit. I have recently recruited some fabulous new members to join our team and would like to thank Jamie for all his hard work and commitment to making sure we got just the right people. I would highly recommend him and the team at Culture.
Sarah Duggan National Head of Marketing at Baldwins Accountants
Working with Laurence and his team at Culture has been a pleasure, they provided me with high calibre candidates, managed the entire process for me start to finish. There are many talent agencies out there but it hard to find one that really does deliver the type of person that I was looking for to join my team.
Courtney Patrick - Brand Strategist
If you are looking for your next recruit, I cannot recommend Laurence more. Laurence quickly understood the nature of the role advertised, as well as the culture within our agency, and provided the best possible candidate for the job. His professionalism, the quality of the candidate and the speed in which he worked were above and beyond my expectations. We will definitely put Laurence and Culture Recruitment at the top of our list when looking to fill any vacancies.
Toby Porter - Chief Executive at Acorns Children's Hospice
Very glad indeed that we contracted Laurence for a pair of important recruitment's recently. Could not be more pleased with the outcome, exceeded our already high expectations. Laurence was very good to deal with, knew the talent pool well, good communicator, retained our confidence throughout.
