As an HR Manager I often receive unsolicited telephone calls from recruitment companies offering their services.  Just by chance I received a call from Adam who was calling someone else and by mistake numbers were mixed up and he ended up speaking to me. At that time I was looking to fill a positon and asked Adam if he could assist me.  Adam and Victoria were on a family holiday at the coast, however regardless of this he offered a quick, efficient and professional service enabling me to fill my vacancy.

Both Adam and Victoria provide a professional reactive recruitment service placing adverts and screening candidates until late on an evening enabling them to forward details to me as the customer for review late at night or first thing on a morning.  To gain an true understanding of our business, the role requirements and the type of person we require they have visited sites, spoken to managers and spent a lot of time gaining an understanding of our needs as their customer.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Clever Fish.

Excellent communication, very fast response time, and competitive rates – what more could you ask for?

Many thanks!

We have been using Clever Fish Recruitment now for just over a year and in this short time we have known them they have been extremely professional and helpful. From the first time they came to meet us they provided invaluable advice and nothing was too much trouble. I am pleased to say that they have been successful in finding us two new members of staff whom we initially set on on a temporary basis but have since taken on permanently and they have proved to be an asset to our company.

I found all aspects of The Clever Fish Recruitment’s service to be very professional from start to finish. I saw my current position advertised and contacted The Clever Fish Recruitment. They went through the job description in detail and talked to me to see if I had the appropriate skills to meet the needs of their client, to make sure we’d be a good fit. It turned out we were and I am now happily employed.
The Clever Fish Recruitment kept me informed at every stage, emailed and phoned when they said they would over appointments, interviews and any administration. Their attention to detail meant that both potential employees and employers receive a service that works and has longevity. I would not hesitate in recommending them to both job seekers or clients wishing to recruit employees.

Operations Manager / Chemical Industry, Halifax

Both Adam and Victoria at The Clever Fish Recruitment have been a pleasure to deal with; always friendly and polite, and available to contact around the clock. They’ve been able to offer a range of temping opportunities around the Huddersfield area, and in my opinion what sets them apart from other agencies is their genuine interest in the individual – this really is a personal and tailored service. I would definitely recommend The Clever Fish Recruitment for any potential job hunters.

Due to a staff retirement in the autumn of 2012, I was forced to look for a new office Manager for my long established chemical business.
I knew the type of person that I wanted to run the office but I was unsure of how to find them. I found the prospect of interviews and selections was quite daunting.
I went online and selected the clever fish recruitment company as they were local and had some good testimonials.
I called Adam and Victoria who quickly came to see me and established my requirements, they outlined the possibilities and all the costs involved.
Within a few weeks they had selected four candidates all of whom I interviewed, they were all very experienced and suitable. I choose a local lady who was able to start immediately. She was initially employed on temporary basis but soon proved herself and she accepted a full time position with the company at the start of the New Year.
I am more than pleased with the service that I received from clever fish and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

David Bayley

Managing Director / Chemical Industry, Huddersfield

The Cleverfish is an exceptional service and I would highly recommend. I have been using there service for 2 years now and they have never let me down. There communication skills are 100% and are always pleasant to talk to whether that be over the phone, E-mail or face face. I am a production supervisor and our business can suddenly pick up overnight which means at a drop of a hat I may need staff asap and Cleverfish supply me with staff at very short notice. I always have piece of mind when contacting them for staff as they are always happy to help and will fulfil my staffing levels instantly. Once you go Cleverfish you will never go back to any other recruitment agency again.
