“BP Retail embarked on a major resturcturing in 2003 involving a significant recruitment drive. Jefferson Maguire managed and co-ordinated the search campaign. We are very satisfied with their professionalism as well as their level of customer care. In particular, they impressed us with their attention to detail and her quick grasp of our specific requirements. Throughout the campaign we were impressed with the quality of the candidates they put forward; the speed with which they presented the candidates; their organisation and co-ordination of interviews and their outstanding follow-up and administration surrounding the actual joining of the successful candidate.”
People Director
“I found the approach of Jefferson Maguire very effective. From the outset, my expectations were managed extremely well in terms of timescale, the number & type of candidates I would see and assurance around Jefferson Maguire’s methodology in seeking candidates. This meant that my time and that of my team was used particularly effectively during the process – a very important factor for me. Within 3-4 weeks of our initial conversation, I was interviewing candidates. The calibre of these was such that 2 out of the 4 were a potentially excellent fit and were taken to 2nd interview within a further 10 days. From my first conversation with Jefferson Maguire until the acceptance of the job offer by the successful candidate, the total time was less than 7 weeks.”

Head Of Brand
“Following our recent recruitment campaigns to select and appoint a number of General Store Managers and Cluster Coaches, I would like to thank Jefferson Maguire very much for the excellent help they gave me in these matters.

When dealing with recruitment consultants, one often feels a sense of concern – will they understand your industry, will they understand your firm and its culture, will they provide reasonable candidates, and most of all will the charges be too high?

I can honestly say that they took considerable pains to make sure that the first three of these were not an issue. They spent a great deal of time trying to find out more about Asda and precisely what we were looking for and, demonstrably provided us with a range of candidates. As to the charges, their charging structure based on success fee only is far more reasonable than most head hunters”.
