Sepehr Jalali - Lead Computer Vision AI Engineer @ Nuclera

It was a pleasure working with Seb on my new role as he was very helpful throughout the whole process and was always available for helpful feedback and suggestions. Whenever there was an item to discuss that he was not sure about, he would chase the matter and get back to me with more information and was very flexible in terms of accommodating changes in the process.

Blanka K - Application Development Scientist

Chris reached out to me via LinkedIn with a job proposition. He was very supportive throughout the whole interview process and informed me of all there was to know about the company. He always explained in detail what was expected of me at different steps of the application and he also made sure to contact me prior to each discussion I had with the company. He is very easy to talk to and I really felt taken care of. I can truly recommend him as a recruiting agent.

Simone – Computational Scientist

Nick was extremely helpful - he suggested an opportunity that fit my talents and followed me through it until I actually managed to land the job! He was always very helpful and supportive, timely organising the meetings and communicating often with both me and the employer.

Tara Chegwidden - Mechanical Engineer

I would highly recommend Chris. My partner and I graduated together and were looking for jobs in the same area in similar sectors. We knew this would be a difficult task to find two jobs in close proximity to each other, relative to our degrees. Chris took our situation on board and found us multiple interviews for relevant roles in interesting companies. During the whole process, Chris was very proactive, professional and had our best interest in mind. He provided us both with a lot of advice and feedback and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. Overall, we could not be more pleased with our experience and I would highly recommend Chris to any graduate.

Eunji Choi - Test and Development Engineer @ Nuclera

Seb is an absolutely helpful recruiter. He supported me through the entire process and kept me updated quickly with the results. Very professional, organised, and friendly. Due to his kind help, I was well prepared for all interview stages.

Robert Zygiel - Thin Film Deposition Technician @ Nuclera

I had the pleasure of speaking with Sebastian for the current job position I was just hired onto, as the Recruiter for said position. It was extremely refreshing talking with him over the general positions topics and requirements, along with discussing my many related job experiences for consideration. I wish the numerous amounts of interviews that I have had prior, were more comparable to the interactions Sebastian and I had! You would be hard pressed to find someone more professional and insightful, in my opinion!

Carolyn – Director of Systems Integration @ Exact Sciences

Chris and his team have been incredible to work with allowing our team to grow quickly. It’s always a pleasure to chat to Chris and he’s able to understand what we are looking for in a candidate. I highly recommend reaching out to Chris if you are a biotech company looking to expand quickly and recruiting in competitive markets

Toby Ost - VP of R&D @ Nuclera

It has been an incredibly busy year with hiring at Nuclera, particularly with the Protein and Bio-focused roles. Having Seb onboard as a dedicated resource has been invaluable in powering this activity at Nuclera. Not only has Seb been incredibly successful at attracting new talent to Nuclera (placing 21 of the 28 offers we have made for scientific roles, of all levels from RA to Director), but the quality of candidates has been high, and most (only 1 exception) have survived, or are well on their way to passing, their probation periods. In addition to the talent acquisition expertise, Seb has done a huge amount of administrative legwork which has removed a huge burden from my workload, for which I am very grateful. I think this is an area that Seb was very proactive and diligent about, and although it wasn't a primary feature of the in-house recruitment partnership, I think he took the initiative to do this, recognising he could add value whilst at the same time remain on the pulse of each candidate journey through our recruitment process. I believe this improved the experience candidates felt as they engaged with Nuclera and prevented the delays and pauses that would have otherwise been encountered, things that have dissuaded candidates from joining in the past. Finally, I found Seb a pleasure to work with. His friendly demeanour is matched by his open and direct communication style. I never found him pushy, and always felt I could trust his judgement in screening suitable candidates. I found him very pragmatic, and on a number of occasions, in situations where I felt other recruiters may have twisted my arm to make a hire to earn some cash, I never felt Seb had anything other than Nuclera's best interests at the heart of his mission. I think Seb is a credit to himself and a strong asset to CT19 and has added huge value to what we do at Nuclera. I would definitely work with Seb again in the future.

Divya B - Manufacturing Engineer

I have worked with Chris on several occasions and was one of the best recruitment consultants I have met. He kept me informed throughout the interview process and was very supportive. He provided me resources to help me with the interview and gave me a lot of information about the company and job. This is a person who will go an extra mile to get you the job you deserve. Once I had two interviews, and was running late for my second one as the first one ran a bit longer. He took his time out from work to give me a lift so that I can make it on time to the next one. It was very impressive, and not many people would have done that. He is very professional and reliable. Highly recommended.

Graduate Engineer - Haydn Trett

Chris contacted me with a job opportunity for a graduate engineer earlier this year. At every stage in the process over the next couple of months, Chris supported my application by providing information, offering his advice, keeping me updated, and passing on feedback. His support helps make the application process so much easier, and really allows you to show the best ‘you’. He makes a conscious effort at every step in the process to see how you’re getting. Any time I had any problems or questions, Chris was always just a quick phone call or email away to help. Chris is fantastic at what he does - He’s professional, proactive, attentive and enthusiastic. I would strongly recommend him to any graduate.

Artur – DevOps Engineer

Nick was an absolute pleasure to communicate with throughout the whole process of him recommending the role and interviewing for it. One thing that really set him apart from most other recruiters for me was that he took note of my concerns, interests and other questions I had and tried to make sure I would be a good fit for the role, and acted as a very good and prompt intermediary between me and the company i was applying to. Would recommend Nick to anyone!

Kareem Muhssin - Research Associate (Protein Science) @ Nuclera

I have nothing but positive things to say about Sebastian. It's rare to be contacted by a recruiter who knows exactly how your strengths can be utilised. Thanks to Seb's input, I was able to successfully land a fascinating research position with an excellent salary to match. The gold standard for recruitment, as far as I'm concerned!

Kay P - Logistics Coordinator

Chris is and extremely professional and enthusiastic individual who made the interview and on boarding process extremely easy. Nothing was too much bother and he made it known that he was more than content to assist where possible, communicating every step effectively and thoroughly. Dealing with Chris has been a pleasure and has been one of the best on boarding experiences I have had to date.

John Hinks - Protein & Enzymology Lead

Chris identified me as a potential fit for a role in an Oxford Biotech and made contact via LI. I was happy to learn more about what became clear was an exciting opportunity, neatly matching my prior experience and my ideal future direction. Chris was supportive and maintained excellent communications throughout the hiring procedure, making it a very smooth process. Chris is skilled at matching candidates to roles that best suit them and I highly recommend him to both those seeking new positions and those needing to fill them.


I recently had the pleasure of working with Sebastian as a candidate for a new job opportunity. Sebastian is a proactive recruitment consultant. He was in constant contact throughout the process, right from the initial opportunity to preparing for the interview process, and providing ongoing support. Sebastian is professional, focused, respectful, and genuinely interested and goes the extra mile to help you with everything you need. I wholeheartedly recommend that you contact and work with Sebastian when looking for your next job opportunity.

Pieter Guichelaar - VP Manufacturing @ ONI

Chris is a pleasure to work with and has made a huge contribution to growing the manufacturing, continuous improvement and project management teams with me at ONI. He takes the time to really understand the role and the type of people we need to be successful.

Jeff Wellstead - VP of People at ONI

Chris was the Talent Specialist at ONI when I joined in June 2019 and was a powerhouse recruiter responsible for the largest percentage of candidate-to-hire success stories across several functions within ONI. His speciality was in supporting our precision manufacturing and product teams - which was harder than it sounds. But he also operated successfully in EU sales, micro-fluidics, wet-lab and the photonics arena. Chris established terrific relationships with hiring managers, gathered critical role requirements and went to market with an enticing proposition - often landing great candidates within days of his outreach efforts. Chris is highly energetic, driven, passionate about his clients and candidates, very communicative and focused on strong candidate experience - whilst working hard to nail targets and keep pipeline flowing. I was lucky to have worked with him and would recommend him to others happily.

Litzi Q

I've worked with my fair share of recruitment consultants in my time, however, none of which have been as attentive, considerate and dedicated as Chris. He is an absolute joy and pleasure to speak to and very knowledgeable. His expertise has helped me through my most recent career search and landed me a very successful role, which I'm delighted to start within the upcoming weeks. If you are considering changing roles or looking for something completely new, I highly recommend that you speak to Chris.

Marie Norden - Office Manager at Lombard Medical Limited

Lombard Medical have worked with Chris to source graduate engineers for our business. After recruiting an excellent graduate in 2018, there was no question of who to talk to when I was looking for two further grads this year. Chris was quick to understand the brief and our requirements, providing a number of candidates. To say we were spoiled for choice is an understatement! Chris' communication is a perfect balance of friendly and understanding whilst keeping progress on track for the business and the candidates too. Hiring just as Covid-19 took a turn in the UK, Chris continued to keep communication lines open with all parties until we managed to get everyone on board and beyond. I don't like pushy recruiters and never get that feeling with Chris, it's nice to catch up even when we don't have any business requirements. Highly recommended to help you find a perfect fit for your business.

Aqilah Zahudi – Senior UX/UI Designer @ Nuclera

It’s been a pleasure working with Sebastian these couple of weeks. He had been accommodating in providing every information required throughout each interview process. He was quick in responding to any emails and provided suggestions whenever we faced an issue to meet mutual understanding. I was very happy with outcome of my employment offer.

Chris P - Head of Supply Chain

Excellent hiring experience with Chris. Open, honest communication throughout, and exactly the right balance of friendliness and professionalism - thoroughly recommended.

Morteza Ozlati Moghadam - Electronics Design Engineer @ Nuclera

Seb is really helpful and responsible, his knowledge about his job is great and always tries his best to help me as fast as possible through email or phone.

Eleonora Bassu - Research Associate @ Nuclera

I have had an excellent experience with Sebastian. He was consistently helpful, informative, and patient. I felt well-informed and well-supported throughout the entire process, finalizing with an offer of employment that I understood and was genuinely happy with.

Jon Armer - Director of Protein Science @ Nuclera

Seb managed my recruitment at my new role. Throughout I was kept really well informed, and he made sure I had all the information required to progress through the process. Seb has also since helped with my on-boarding and to check everything is going well. The level of contact and support was just right and is exactly what you'd want from a recruitment specialist. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Fernando Martin - Instrument Software Group Leader @ Nuclera

I have been working with Sebastian on several roles in Nuclera as a recruitment manager but also as a candidate since I first joined. He has been excellent in helping us with scheduling all the different stages of the process with candidates, managing our recruitment portal, and being very helpful for a resource and time-constrained environment like a fast-growing start-up. He differentiates himself by being honest, hard-working, and results-driven while treating candidates with respect and communicating very clearly with them; making them very engaged with the process and the company. I highly recommend Sebastian and hope he can keep helping us build an excellent team with his invaluable help.

Amy Lovell – Assay Development Associate

Chris reached out to me via LinkedIn about an exciting job opportunity that was well suited to my prior experience and future aspirations. He was really helpful throughout the entire process, offering advice and support, always responding quickly, and always willing to follow up with the Company. Chris was very reassuring and friendly, and I would definitely recommend him to other candidates. I am very grateful for all his help and can’t thank him enough.

Kayan – Research Associate

Nick was greatly helpful in my switch over to an innovative biotech spin-out. He has connections to many great biotechs and bioscience companies. He was always happy to discuss my concerns; and was proactive with sorting out the admin, which made my life much easier. Would recommend him to others looking to make a switch in the bioscience space.

Kelvin Leung - Senior Mechanical Design Engineer @ Nuclera

Sebastian was a job agent for one of the roles, he is exceptional, willing to go the extra mile unlike most others I've encounter, doing follow-ups, accommodate candidate requests and willing to put forward a case to the company (& vice versa) for the benefit and future progression of both the candidate and the company he represents. Detailed, understanding, good communicator, a person you could reason with, who genuine care for both parties.

Marco Manni - Assay Development Scientist @ Nuclera

Sebastian contacted me regarding a job offer from a Cambridge company. He took care of every step of the selection process by contacting the hiring manager, organizing the interview, and providing good advice. As soon as I was selected for the position, he quickly got in touch with me, giving me a lot of information and details about the company's benefits and future prospects. I enjoyed being in touch with him and I look forward to continuing to do so when I start working for the company.

Kavita – Assay Development Scientist

Seb has been fantastic to work with. Seb is just outstanding at his job. I have been consistently impressed with Seb's proactive and supportive attitude and it is something which I will always remember. He kept in contact with me throughout the recruitment process always giving solid and useful advice. Seb used to call me regularly to update me on my application at Nuclera and to see how each stage of interview went and was prompt in following up. Within two days, I had the job offer. This is all down to his highly approachable and professional nature. He is also very thorough and helpful and has your best interests in mind. Many thanks for that Seb. I highly recommend Seb and would want to work with him again.

Guillaume Boucher - Technical Customer Support Specialist @ Nuclera

Thanks to Sebastian’s professionalism and excellent communication skills, my experience in finding my new job was great, fast and seamless.

Silvia Correia - HR Business Partner @ Nuclera

Sebastian is very helpful and supportive. He was very patient, personable, and attentive through my recruitment process. Sebastian was always available for any questions and ready to help. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I had a very good experience working with Sebastian in helping me find a new role. He was very transparent about the position from the start, gave me a good glimpse into the company and the role. He also kept in touch with me post the interview stages and did not leave me in the dark. I would definitely recommend Sebastian to anyone looking to transition into a new role.

Michael Lacourse - Thin Film Deposition Technician @ Nuclera

I had the pleasure of working with Sebastian in attaining my new position at Nuclera. He is extremely professional and was instrumental in making the interview process as seamless as possible. Even working across the Atlantic (and over 5 time zones) he was always attentive and punctual. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Sebastian to anyone looking to make a career change.

Charlotte Marlborough - Graduate Engineer

Chris contacted me regarding a Graduate position and I can not recommend him highly enough. He provided me with plenty of information regarding the position and made the whole application extremely easy for me. He has been very proactive throughout the whole process and kept me informed at every stage. He was very professional and supportive throughout the application. He made a conscious effort to contact me and get a review at each stage of the process and this was greatly appreciated. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me.

Cecilia Eklund - Head of Talent at ONI

Chris always asked the right questions to truly understand our needs and business. He was unusually skilful at taking this information and the story behind the business to the market without the message being diluted, a skill I’ve rarely come across when working with external agencies. I believe it is this skill that ultimately made him so successful in finding top technical talent that also fitted with the business culture. Equally important, Chris quickly tailored his communication style and frequency to one that suited the team at ONI. Meaning minimum effort from the team to keep up to date with the candidate pipeline, feedback and next steps. This combined with an ever-positive can-do-attitude and candidate experience centric approach made the decision to ask Chris to join the team full time a very easy one!

Juli M - Operations & Communications

Chris approached me in a very professional and efficient manner. After a while, he understood I was worried about being placed at a company that had nothing in common with me. To ensure me this would be a great opportunity to me, he described everything he knew about the company. Even what kind of coffee they drank in the office! I don't choose companies by the coffee they offer, but I really appreciated the honest approach. I'm very happy at my new job and I'm glad Chris is recruiting for our team. I feel like I can count on him.

Joshua Paolucci - Research Associate (Protein Science) @ Nuclera

Sebastian was very friendly and helpful during my application to my new role at Nuclera. As my first contact with the company, he did a lot to make me feel I would be happy there. He made me feel very welcome during every conversation we had, was flexible in organising the different interview stages, was able to thoroughly answer any question I had and gave very helpful advice for key milestones.

Duncan H – R&D Manager

As a candidate, I would highly recommend Chris to others. He has a very personable communication style, is very knowledgeable, supportive and quick to respond to enquiries. He was able to find me a role that perfectly aligned with my medium-long term career goals and my new employer's requirements. After receiving my new offer of employment, Chris stayed in regular contact during the interim leading up to my first day to check everything was going well. Chris is evidently somebody how cares about what he does and takes his duty of care seriously.

Chris best was my lifeline when I was screening and interviewing hundreds of people. As an external recruiter, Chris was extremely helpful, organised and positive. Out of over 20 people I personally hired, Chris placed more than half of them in my team. Chris is very passionate about people and his approach to the customer and the people he recruited was very unique in the marketplace. Chris completely understood the needs of the business, the roles and the culture. I highly recommend Chris!
