  • The consultants at Recruit 12 strive to reduce the problems, providing advice and guidance at every stage of your journey. They are professional and proactive and work as a team to provide the highest level of customer service.

    Candidate

  • This platform is excellent! Well done on setting this up. It is really innovative and so  much better than a standard phone interview. A great mix of candidates from an experience point of view.

    Tier 1 Automotive company

  • This is a really interesting concept and will certainly save a lot of time. I like the idea of being able to ask some robust screening questions and seeing the candidates answer them.

    Automotive OEM

  • From the first call from Recruit 12, the recruitment process was explained and managed perfectly. They were proactive at managing the recruitment process and regularly contacted me to keep me up to date. They have actively supported me throughout the process.

    Candidate

  • Recruit 12 have become our ‘go to’ source for quality candidates when we are struggling to recruit through our own traditional means. They have taken the time to really get to know our business and only put prospective candidates in front of us who fulfil our brief. Their whole approach is really refreshing in a time when the world of recruitment seems to be changing so quickly.
