“I'd highly recommend utilising Chris' services whether on a candidate side or a client. I've worked in partnership with many agencies in my experience but Chris sits top of them all in terms of his calm, friendly, informative, candidate-driven approach. The job is clearly about more than just a fee to him, which goes a really long way.”

Edgar KMarket Access Analyst

“I met Chris in the first couple of weeks of me working in my first HR job. He was so friendly and welcoming and I felt comfortable asking him all sorts of recruiting questions. Not only has he been supportive with that regards but he is also a fantastic recruiter himself. Chris's work was essential in finding a perfect candidate for a difficult role to fill. Chris shows genuine interest in Mirada and wants to fully understand our culture and needs. He doesn't bombard us with useless CVs, instead, he approaches recruitment with honesty and transparency. I look forward to continuing our work with Chris and CT19 in the future!”

“Chris contacted me during my job search and has helped place me with a company and a role that I am very excited for. The joyful experience of working with Chris was something I did not expect from a recruiter! He was attentive, understood me well, professional whilst also being incredibly friendly, and felt like an ally in the recruitment industry. He knew the company and the role well, and was able to explain and help me with every little question I had, no matter the time of day. Thank you, Chris, for such a positive recruitment experience!”

Christine HManufacturing & Process Engineer

“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.”

Marie SHR Manager

“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.”

John HEnzymology & Protein Lead Scientist

“Chris first contacted me regarding a position that I was excited to find was a great fit for my skills and motivations. He did a great job of keeping me updated on the process, giving me the best opportunity to demonstrate my suitability for the role.”

Jordan BNGS Associate

“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.”

Haydn TGraduate Engineer

“Chris always asked the right questions in order 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!”

Cecilia EHead of Talent

“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.”

Charlotte MGraduate Engineer

“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 a 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.”

Jeff WVP of People

“I would highly recommend Chris. My partner and I graduated together and we 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 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.”

Kay PLogistics Manager

“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.”

Blanka KApplications Scientist

“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!”

Oliver BOperations Manager

“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.”

Thanks to her efforts, I felt well-prepared for my interviews and she offered a great deal of advice and help. A pleasure to work with.”

Christian GResearch Assistant

“Nadia approached me with a position via a LinkedIn message, and from the very beginning was professional, approachable and overall really friendly. She guided me through the whole process, keeping me updated at every step, even giving me a quick call before interviews to wish me good luck (which really helped to settle my nerves, thank you!). She gave advice when I asked for it, was easy to speak to, and always offered extra help wherever she could. When I was offered the job, she genuinely seemed as happy as I was, which was so lovely. I would not hesitate in recommending Nadia to anyone. Thank you so much :)”

Harriet LSenior Editor

“I worked with Nadia to fill a vacancy in my team at Evonetix.

She made the whole process seamless, keeping me well informed right throughout the process and made sure I had all of the information I required to make my application and progression through the interview stages a successful one. CT19 met all of my expectations and aspirations in ensuring the position was right for me. Tayla is one of the best recruitment specialists I have come across. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with her and CT19 and they would be my choice for any recruitment project as both a job seeker and a recruiting organisation.”
