Here are some words from our candidates.

This includes comments from those successfully placed and as importantly includes feedback from people we did not place but felt well-supported by the Callidus team.

“Very easy to deal with, great communication. Ellie Barnsley is one of the finest recruiters that I have worked with in 25 years of industry experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ellie and Callidus Consulting.”

Senior Candidate placed with major leasing business, June 2019 – with particular praise for Ellie

 “The whole team at Callidus Consulting were recommended to me by a number of different people when I expressed an interest in finding a new opportunity on my return to the UK. I was not in the least bit disappointed with their work. After meeting Iain once, he fully understood my skill set, my personality and matched the opportunities to those that he knew I would be interested and successful in.

– Senior Automotive Candidate

“Caroline and the team at Callidus helped me when I most needed them. they gave me expert guidance and help in finding a new job. I would recommend Caroline to anyone who is looking for a new role, and if I need their help in the future I will be straight in touch”

– Automotive Sales Candidate

I have had the great pleasure in dealing with the team at Callidus Consulting recently. The entire process was painless and each step Ellie, Iain and Caroline were supportive and offered amazing advice and guidance. I have now started my new role and enjoying every moment. The best interaction I have had ever had with a recruitment agency so rest assured you are in safe hands with the team at Callidus. Thank you all and best wishes for the future.

– Candidate placed June 2016 with a major automotive business

“Callidus have been excellent. Caroline was supportive right from the start of my application, through to helping me prepare for my second interview. Caroline was brilliant at keeping me informed every step of the way either by e-mail or phone – a rare occurrence with agencies! I have had contact with a few other agencies that call themselves ‘Automotive specialist’s, but after an initial screening you never hear anymore, Callidus were never like this. Callidus have been excellent with me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other people. Thanks again for your help Caroline and the team.”

– Went to final stages but not placed

“I have used a fair few agencies over the years, both as an employee and also as an employer, Callidus Consulting, without a doubt are one of the most professional teams I have ever dealt with. In my most recent experience the attention to detail was second to none, the post I was approached for was accurate in its initial description, and the attention to detail that Iain went into to ensure I was the right candidate, but also that the role was right for me were refreshing to say the least. These days when it all seems to be about firing out as many CV’s as possible to see which stick, It’s refreshing to know some people still do this job properly.”

– Candidate placed February 2016 with a global automotive organisation

5 Stars – from the outset the team were fantastic. Great communication throughout, outstanding support, first class service. I couldn’t fault them.  I would 100% recommend.

Senior candidate placed 2019 with market leading fleet services business

“Callidus have being fantastic! I contacted Ellie regarding a role and we had a discussion regarding my experience, and Ellie suggested that there was a better role that I should apply for as it was a better fit for me. We met for over an hour and a half to discuss the role in detail, and also my experience, knowledge and skills. After 2 interviews I was offered and accepted a manager role with a growing and respected global company. I have being very impressed with the level of communication, advice, support and guidance I have received, and would recommend Callidus Consulting to any jobseeker or employer looking for a responsive and professional employment consultant.“

“The recruitment process with Callidus was excellent and very professional from start to finish. All communication was very good both written and verbally and all within timescales discussed. Ian, Caroline & the team work very hard to ensure as a candidate you are informed at all times and are very thorough in their work – all in all a very pleasant change from normal recruitment companies, can highly recommend!”

– Candidate placed  with a global corporate automotive business.

“Having dealt with quite a few recruiters now, I have to say that you are by far one of the most professional and thoughtful, and it was clear that you had actually bothered to read my CV and also listen during our initial meeting, and for that I’d like to say thank you.”
