HR Manager, a Verint company


“I have worked closely with various members of the team at European Recruitment for some time. Their ability to attract top talent goes without saying (and their success speaks for itself) but their ability to establish a cultural as well as a functional fit within NVIDIA is what sets them apart. They are strong ambassadors for our brand and, with relatively little guidance, they have developed an innate understanding of our core values. This enables them to evangelise without ever resorting to hyperbole. They also understand the need for levity in their profession and have always managed to balance a sense of professionalism with a sense of genuine fun and humour, which is essential in a role that, by necessity, is riddled with complex and protracted processes. This ethos is not an accident, it is an attitude which is cultivated in every member of the European Recruitment team.”

Staffing Manager, NVIDIA


“European Recruitment Ltd has come on board as a recruiter about 1 year ago and consistently offered a very high level of candidates. I have no hesitation in recommending them as a recruitment partner. They have an excellent understanding of our needs and as a result of that a very high CV to interview ratio. It´s a pleasure to work with them and they have been a great support in the recruitment process.”

Talent acquisition consultant, Nokia, Flexbase GmbH


“European Recruitment started to work with us recently and have already managed to prove that they are a supplier of superior quality. When given a contract to fill the extremely difficult role of Teradyne Test Developer, a role which other suppliers have had a very hard time finding suitable candidates for, European Recruitment managed to supply several excellent profiles within a day. They have managed to uphold this quality with every upcoming request since. I can recommend them without reservations.”

Key Account Manager, Semiconductor


“With professionalism and honesty, European Recruitment have been providing an exceptional service to Samsung, especially given the tough task of sourcing candidates for our HQ in South Korea. We are very pleased to have established a good relationship with European Recruitment and hope it will be a long standing one!”

Recruitment Specialist, Samsung Electronics


“In an unprecedented year of recruitment, I have been particularly impressed with the responsive service provided by David Wicks/ERL, we look for the highest calibre of candidate and they have managed to make volume placements with us – long may our association continue!”

HR/Recruitment Manager, Anritsu


“Ed and ERL have a very good understanding of the telecomms market and have provided an excellent service to Anritsu over a number of years, helping to fill some very difficult positions both in the UK and overseas.”

HR Director, Anritsu


“David and the teams he grew supplied over 40 placements with us and were always able to find the most difficult candidates that nobody else could. They have excellent standards in recruitment and the highly academic and technically gifted engineers we look for are genuinely hard to find. David is a exceptionally gifted recruiter and is also able to get the people he hires to a similar level. I would highly recommend David and his team to anyone looking to recruit.”

HR Manager, Nokia Mobile Phones


“David has not only found me my last 2 roles but also worked as a supplier in both cases. In finding me a role I found him by far the best in the embedded comms area, only getting in contact when there’s a real possibility of a match. As a supplier you can always know the candidates he supplies are top quality. I can wholeheartedly recommend David as the top recruiter in the field.”

“I came in touch with Chris during the period in which I was looking for a job. He responded very quickly when I asked for any openings through European Recruitment. Then I got through to my first and second interviews through Chris’s efforts in no time and eventually got hired. Chris’s highlights would be his Responsiveness, Being well aware of each company’s recruitment laws and very good communication throughout the recruitment process.” January, 2017. LabVIEW Developer, VI Technologies.

“Christopher is passionate about his job. He knows his role is important and cares about doing his job at high standards. He has the patience to reach his goals in the right timing. His hints and recommendations served me well, for them I am very thankful.” December, 2016. Research & Development Team Leader, Automotive company.


“It was a great pleasure to work together with Oliver during the recruitment process. He provided me all the necessary information, and was a great interface between me and the employer. During all the recruitment process (phone interviews, face-to-face interviews, relocation), I want to emphasise two aspects. One is the friendly relation that was developed. During our phone conversations I never felt talking to a recruiter, but to a truly concerned person that is committed to finding the best compromise to all interested parties (employee, employer and recruiter). Secondly, I also want to remark on the great concern and availability shown after the recruitment process. In my personal case, after I got the new position, it was necessary for a complete relocation to a different country and during that process Oliver always showed a great availability to help. I conclude with a great thanks to him.” March, 2012. Analogue RF IC Design Engineer.

“I got the reference to Oliver Ward from European Recruitment from my engineer friend. All along the recruitment process (and afterwards) Oliver was very professional, supportive and positive. The communication was fast and efficient and the process was quick and smooth. I do recommend European Recruitment and Oliver’s services and look forward to working with them again in the future.” March, 2012. Senior Engineer, TES.


“I had an opportunity to be recruited by Simon and I would like to recommend him as a professional recruiter in the IT area. Simon is a very well organised and people oriented person who takes care and helps with every detail of the job change procedure with a deep knowledge about recruitment process. Simon helped me a lot in early stages of the process and even after I became hired he was still interested with and really engaged in this topic. I was really impressed with his positive attitude and for sure will recommend Simon to some of my friends. I wish him a lot of success in his daily job.” April, 2015. License Manager, a global IT provider.

“My interaction with Simon was during my recent job search. He is definitely a highly professional recruiter that takes care and helps with every detail of the job change procedure. From interview to relocation and settling in he made sure I felt looked after at every point along the way. I have already recommended him to some of my friends. I wish him all the best and look forward to any future interaction we might have.” October, 2013. Product Assurance Lead, Anite.


“From the start Jenna made sure that everything was on the right tracks. She was a great help in securing the right job for me. I am very glad that I had the chance to work with Jenna. Highly recommended.” December, 2016. RF Engineer, Microsoft.

“I recommend Jenna because she is different from the others. The very thing that makes her different is her big and sincere heart for helping people. I also recommend her because of what I see in her…sincere, persevering, efficient, excellent, reliable, trustworthy, friendly and approachable. I was so blessed working with her and I appreciate everything that she has done for me. I believe that she will be able to help a lot of people if people will allow her to help them.” August, 2016. Interconnect Development Expert, Texas Instruments.


“Gabrielle helped me to make my last job change. I was looking for a change and she showed matching offers in several different fields and several countries. I chose between them and made a great job hop to Cyprus. Gabrielle helped me along the process with any doubt I had. This was the first time for me moving to another country and thanks to her help everything went smoothly. She foresaw and solved problems before they appeared; problems that were new to me and that I didn´t see before. I am very grateful of Gabrielle´s help and would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.” November, 2016. C++ Developer, UTX technologies.

“Gabrielle introduced me a new interesting position in Germany. She kept me well informed during the whole recruitment process and gave also good tips on how to prepare for interview and also after that, the practicalities regarding moving to Germany. I was positively surprised by her professional and careful way how she handled the whole recruitment process until I had started my job. It was a pleasure to work with Gabrielle.”  April, 2017. Senior RF Engineer.


“Leanne is an enthusiastic, energetic person. At the same time she is very patient and helpful on each step of the recruitment process. She is driven by passion for her duties and a deep understanding of the complex embedded development area of the IT market. This allowed her to quickly find a new, interesting and challenging position of Kernel Developer for me. Thanks to Leanne’s skills and engagement, the whole recruitment process ran smoothly. She continuously ensures that everything goes the same, great way before and after sealing the deal. Leanne possesses a perfect mix of skills, which is a guaranteed long-term win-win situation for all who work with her. Thank you Leanne!” January, 2017. Embedded Software Engineer, NXP Semiconductors.

“An outstanding professional. Not only she will find you great opportunities, but will also coach you during the entire process, providing crucial information and helping you feel at ease – specially during calls – due to her friendly and cheerful personality. Also, she is very organized and always keep you updated regarding the processes you are involved. She, also, is precise when providing the information and never overwhelms you with them. Essentially, Leanne usually just provides what you need to be successful. But the trait that impressed me the most, is her heart of gold: she sounds genuinely concerned about you, always asking about your feelings, expectations, concerns… this personal touch is invaluable when helping a professional during long processes.” August, 2017. Master Developer on SIDI.


One quality that distinguishes Cameron from most, if not all, of the recruitment consultants that I have ever interacted with is that he is passionate about technology. As a result, he has a clear understanding and an accurate global vision of the roles and values of technological bricks and skills. You don’t get meaningless keywords from him, just well-matching offers and enlightening advice. Additionally, he is pleasant and considerate, and seems to genuinely care about your application. I think that I would have had a much harder time finding my new position if it weren’t for him. November, 2017. PHD Student, Computer Vision.

“I have no words to describe how thankful I am for your support, kindness and professionalism throughout the process. You were always there for me and it was an incredible pleasure to deal with you. Cameron you are a very lovely person and I wish you all the best in your future career, if recruitment is what you want to pursue you are absolutely amazing at it, professional and human, what we need more of in this difficult world.” May, 2017. Account Manager, Guinness World Records.


“After 2.5 years contracting with NXP Semiconductors through European Recruitment, I have just accepted a permanent position. During this time, Aga has been my accountant and direct contact with ERL. She assured a smooth service and responded quickly every time I contacted her. I’ve been very surprised with the service I’ve received and with the fact that she always went the extra mile to help with any queries or doubts. I would like to express my thanks to ERL and Aga in particular for the past 2.5 years. I clearly recommend them to anyone looking for a new job.” February, 2017.


“Edward was giving warm and timing help on supplying and arranging my interview and enrolling process with Anritsu. He was very efficient and effective in communicating with Anritsu and me, and also gave helpful and persuasive advice in the case.” March, 2011. Senior Software Engineer, Anritsu.


“David helped me find a perfect position. He is very approachable and transparent. I never found him create a false impression and he always gave me an option to choose rather than pushing something of his interest. Despite my specific requirements David offered me plenty of options. He has right attitude for his job and I highly recommend him.” Protocol Stack Expert, Rohde & Schwarz.

“David Wicks is the best consultant I interacted with. He has all the attributes to do his job perfectly. He understands your profile, concerns and needs. He gets you right job roles. He is knowledgeable and gives proper guidance. Also, he is very approachable and encouraging. The important quality of his is that he is very reliable (never goes back on his words or creates false impressions about the role/anything at any stage) and hence trustworthy. He intimates the events promptly and doesn’t push any of his favourite profiles on you, instead allows you to choose. Another important quality of him is that he never puts you in difficult situation, instead always make things comfortable for you. In one line, he has all (+more) that you expect from an agent. I was lucky to get his contact. Thanks a lot David. You are just a wonderful person.” Senior SW Engineer, Anritsu.
