Ed's professionalism and hard work made the difference for me, he was able to quickly and effectively assist me in securing my first position within education recruitment. At all times Ed went to great lengths to assist me in interviews and eventually securing me a wonderful position. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Ed as a diligent and helpful consultant who went the extra mile and at all times made me feel like a valued candidate

I can't recommend Apical Recruitment highly enough. As a teacher about to make a huge career change into Educational Recruitment, I initially found the transition daunting and felt anxious to secure the best possible position. Apical Recruitment expertly guided me through this process, offering valuable advice, reassurance and knowledge about the industry. I was extremely impressed by the professional yet personal service I received and consequently trusted the company implicitly. Through Apical Recruitment, I have now secured a fantastic position which I'm incredibly excited to begin. Thank you so much for kickstarting my career!

Ed was a great person to work with. I had had little previous experience of recruitment, but he calmed my nerves and guided me expertly through the process. He was a reassuring presence throughout, always available to talk and offer advice. He was honest in his assessments and feedback and an excellent link between myself and the recruiter; I really felt as though he was on my side and was instrumental in securing me an interview and a job offer.

"Ed was brilliant when I was looking for my next role. He listened to what I was looking for, he kept me updated, and was open throughout the process. Ed stood out as exceptional within his field and I would recommend him to anyone that wants a step up in service from a Rec to Rec. He will be my first point of call should any of my seasoned recruitment colleagues be looking to make a move."

"As a recruiter with 3 years experience I know a good service and when I am being listened too. Throughout my application process I found Apical Recruitment to be very friendly, very knowledgeable and honest. I was tired of my recruitment industry but after consulting with Apical I realised it was not my recruitment industry I needed to change but the company I worked for. I had become disillusioned with Healthcare recruitment but realised it was not the market itself but the organisation I worked for. Apical recruitment listened and offered advice, guidance and opinions and I am glad I took on board some initial comments. I have secured a position with a fantastic company whilst remaining in an industry I have years of experience in and can develop further. Apical offer an outstanding service from start to finish"

“Apical was extremely helpful and professional in guiding me through my application process for a job in Educational Recruitment. Whenever advice and guidance were needed, whether in or out of usual working hours, Apical went above and beyond to ensure that all my questions were answered, this including advice before my interviews, and follow up conversations afterwards. Apical's faultless advice and feedback were one of the main factors that resulted in my application and interview process being successful, and their thoughtful approach made me feel confident throughout.”

Apical recruitment is an outstanding recruitment service. Upon first contact i was made to feel valued as considerable time and attention was given in ensuring that the job was suitable for me, and that they truly understood what my prior experience and future career aspirations were. I found the service given was very professional, whilst always being at hand help was needed. Especially during the interview process, where I was given advice before my interviews, and follow up calls after. The service received was truly exceptional. The dedication, attention to detail and reliability was unlike any that I have previously experienced from a recruitment company. In particular the way you are put at ease with friendly and supportive service.

Coming from a recruitment background I have a good understanding of the recruitment process being handled well and not so well. My own experience in dealing with Apical Recruitment is a perfect example of the process being handled impeccably well. From initial contact with Apical to the point of placement I have consistently received outstanding service, always happy to help with any queries I had even after my offer acceptance. I was given an exceptional level of understanding, professionalism and honesty and what's more I was always very impressed with the invaluable knowledge Apical had regarding the position and the level of respect shown to both myself and the company I was put forward to.
