"Kim was first class at selecting the right candidate for the right position at the right firm. The differentiating factor in the service that Kim provided was the genuine interest and care that she has with her candidates. She has continually followed up with both myself and the candidate to make sure that the transition into the role and development into the role within our team is as effective as possible."

Derek Wright (HR Business Partner), Advanced Supply
"I wanted to draw to your attention the excellent service we have recently had from Amiee Kelly on the temporary side. We rarely use locums, but we had a desperate situation at the end of February when our head of residential conveyancing was taken out of action for a month at an extremely busy period due to the stamp duty changes. We contacted a few agents that we use on the permanent side, of which you were one. Within 48 hours of our first contact, Amiee had sent us CVs, arranged telephone interviews and we had appointed one of your locums, who started a further day later. The other agents only responded after we had already appointed the candidate through you. I realise there’s a bit of luck with locums, but the candidate was excellent. Added to this, the service within your direct control from Amiee was exactly what we needed and brilliant."
Simon Leighton (Managing Partner), Croftons Solicitors

They assisted us in recruiting a number of Partners for our new office and within 6 months of opening we had achieved our objective of a full service offering."
Neil Middleton (HR Director), Capsticks
"We have been working with Sacco Mann more closely for around 12 months, alongside two other recruitment companies that we also rate. We have found them to listen carefully to what we say, make helpful business suggestions and be sensible in their candidate recommendations. With a recent property solicitor appointment they did a follow up coffee meeting with the candidate to ensure the candidate was settling in well."
