"I was referred to Sigmar Recruitment from a friend. John Dunphy from the banking team assisted me and I found him to be very honest, friendly, hardworking down to earth and he actually listened to what I said. He fully understood the role we were looking to fill and supplied with me lots of C.V.'s for review, which you might think could be quantity over quality, however all the C.V.'s were worthy of review and interview. This is a huge benefit, for anyone recruiting so I cannot convey how grateful I was to get these high standard C.V.'s. I work in an open plan office and cannot take recruitment calls, I explained this to John and we found a way to work around it. This made the relationship great.
Unfortunately we did not fill our role through Sigmar, as the candidate we took on was referred in by another practice. However I would have absolutely no hesitation to contact John Dunphy or Alan Martyn again when another role arises and work with Sigmar Recruitment exclusively. From my experience of dealing with Sigmar I found them to be professional, hardworking and trustworthy and I would highly recommend them to clients, it was a pleasure to deal with them."

"ChangingWorlds has worked closely with Sigmar for over 4 years. In an industry which in many cases has a hit and hope attitude to recruitment, Sigmar differentiate themselves by fully understanding, not only the nature of ChangingWorlds business, but what constitutes a ChangingWorlds person. With limited HR resources, ChangingWorlds has benefited from having an intelligent recruitment partner who we view as being embedded within the organisation. The Sigmar team demonstrate a trademark style of consistent, patient professionalism; this has enabled us to find the right people, at the right cost in a very challenging market. I would recommend Sigmar, in particular Barry Rudden and Shane McKenna, to any HR Department who are looking for partners who not only deliver great results, but whose enthusiasm and determination to find the right person, make the process of recruitment enjoyable."
