Below are what our candidates are saying about us:
Hi William. I’m not on LinkedIn so I can’t do a like or leave a comment about Abacus. So, I’m sending an email instead. I’ve moved over to a 7-month contract with ****** now and have left Abacus as such. Warwick has been very helpful over the past year, in what has been a difficult time for many. This is my third placement with Abacus over the past 5 years and it would always be my first port of call when looking for a new position due to the positive experience I have received. I would heartily recommend Abacus to anyone I know looking for work in the sectors/ areas you cover. I would also single out Warwick for praise as he goes the extra mile for both candidates and employers. Kind Regards Nigel, Accounts Assistant
“HI Matt & Warwick, Thank you so much! You have both been so supportive throughout more so than any other recruitment agency I have ever dealt with. I feel like I can talk to you both about pretty much anything. . You guys are the best and I trust you can find someone who will be suitable for the job at ****” Tacha, Accounts Assistant
“Matt has helped me to secure a new position after I was being made redundant after 29 years with the same Company. I was very lucky that the first position Matt recommended me for I was offered the role. Matt was fantastic the whole way through the process and after each interview he was keen to make sure everything was OK and I was happy, even calling me over a weekend to make sure I had received my offer letter as promised. I could not have asked for anything more from a recruitment agency and if I ever find myself in this situation again Matt will be the first person that I would call and I will certainly recommended him to friends and family, his happy nature and wanting to do the right thing for his clients is admirable. Thanks Matt, you are a star”, Nikki, Assistant Accountant.
“If all recruiters were even one step behind you, the industry would be perfect. Thank you so much for everything Warwick.” Kind regards, Martyn Credit Controller.
“Michelle was super helpful at every stage of the process, being proactive and suggesting possible employers even during a difficult time with corona virus. She was very supportive, always checking in on me after interviews. Overall I am very happy with the experience” Matt, 1st Class Grad.
William, I’m pleased to tell you I have temporary job. Abacus arranged an interview yesterday (Thursday) for me and I start on Monday. It is only for 2 to 3 months but could end up permanently after that. You are the only Company that has:- Found me any work. Kept in touch with me the whole shutdown epidemic. Your team contacting me as soon as a job became available in my area. Basically cares to the point that Katherine is on holiday next week but has told me to ring her should I have any problems bless her. Thank you and your Abacus for a brilliant job and caring about finding a job so much for your clients. Have a wonderful weekend I know I will now. Carole, Purchase Leger/Invoicing Clerk.
“Callum, Just wanted to thank you for all your help over the last couple of weeks. I have found you to be really personable, friendly , informative and a great sounding board. Good luck for the future. Best regards.” Julie, Accounts Manager.
“Hi Michelle, Well, what a week at X I’ve had!!! My head is spinning with all the info I’m trying to retain and hopefully I’ll not have forgotten everything when I go back tomorrow. The staff there have made me feel so welcome – I keep making tea, so hopefully they will let me stay! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you did in acting as the go between, from your regular updates via a telephone call and email, to texts wishing me luck and to see how I was getting on this week. As many of these were done in your own time, I’m especially grateful to you. You’re enthusiasm kept me going whilst waiting to hear back from X and I was totally thrilled when you rang to tell me they offered me the job. Thank you so much for spotting my CV. I mean this most advisedly when I say I hope I won’t be needing your services any time soon 🙂. Once again Michelle, thanks very much. Kind regards” Gina, Bookkeeper.
“I was approached by Michelle after putting my CV online. She was extremely professional and very kind. Due to work commitments, I was unable to come to the offices to sign up with the agency but Michelle worked around that and we met at a more convenient time and place on my lunch break. She was brilliant. Very informative and easy to speak to. Thank you so much for finding me my job :D” Kristina, Accounts Payable Assistant.
“Hi Michelle, I’d met with a lot of Recruitment Agencies prior to meeting you. Each of them spoke of suitable vacancies however none of them communicated after the meeting even when prompted. It left me really disheartened. After meeting with you, you sent me the information about the role we discussed that very same day! You communicated with me without prompting every time thereafter and I couldn’t have been more grateful. Even if I hadn’t been offered the position at X I had confidence that you’d do your very best to find me another role. As horrid as it sounds, I hope I don’t need your help again for a very long time as I hope to be at X for a long time however if ever I do need an agency, I’ll be asking for you! Thank you for everything,” Leigh, Assistant Accountant.
” I just wanted to take the time again to thank you Warwick (and Matt) in my job search this year. You were both very patient with me through the process, I had not had many good experiences in my job searches. Many agencies are just trying to put a bod in a job. But with you two it was very different! You knew what I was looking for, and you knew when I needed the extra nudge. It’s a perfect fit! Thanks again for everything!” Emma, Accounts Assistant.
“Hi William, I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for placing me at C. Earlier this year, I was looking for a new role, Katherine was the only person I spoke to at many different agencies, who took on board my request to work at a lower level than I had done previously. In fact, she very quickly put me forward for a role with B. I was so pleased that she had actually listened to me and not just slotted me into a hole as so many other agencies do. Once i had left B, I thought that would be the end of my relationship with yourselves but was really heartened when Warwick called me only a couple of days later to put me forward for the role at C, yet again listening to my requests for the type of role and company that i would like to work for. Warwick has been so supportive over the past couple of months. Nothing has been too much trouble for him, if i ever had a query or question. I will be sad not to receive his weekly updates. I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your amazing team. You have certainly made a difference to m, in taking time to find the right role and company for me and for that I am eternally grateful. I do hope you will pass my thanks on to Katherine and Warwick. Keep doing what you do, it sets you apart from all the rest out there” Kind Regards Angie, Management Accountant.
“Hi Callum, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help (and Matt), The service, encouragement and after care has been fantastic. You guys are the only agency that has come back with feed back about interviews and given really good advice about interview techniques. I would recommend abacus to my friends if they were thinking of looking for a new job. Thank you again.” Wanda, Credit Controller.
“Hi Katherine, Thank you very much. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind help and support during my time at Abacus Consulting. I have worked at the company for the last two years and throughout that period, I have experienced personal as well as professional support. I want you to know how grateful I am for all that you’ve done for me. Thank you very much, and I wish you and the company continued success. I would definitely recommend Abacus as a employer. It was a pleasure to meet you and work for you.” Karolina, Finance Assistant.
“Good morning Michelle, I do not believe there are any areas you require improvement on. From our initial meeting you were very welcoming and professional, you maintained good communication throughout my interviews and whilst I was working for the agency. You dealt with all my queries in good time and were supportive during my time at the agency. I appreciated you keeping in contact and chasing up when I’d get my permanent contract, as you’ll remember it took a while due to the transition to Mitie – I think you helped nudge it along a bit faster. I would recommend people to use Abacus as compared to other agencies I met with you were by far the best and most professional.” Sarah, Sales Ledger assistant.
“Callum, I would like to thank you for all your help and guidance in my job search! You have been very proactive in your approach from start to finish. All the best for the future.” Henry, Purchase Ledger assistant.
“My experience of working with Matt was exceptional. From initial contact until he successfully placed me, he constantly supported me in my applications. He went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. Highly recommended” Zsuzsanna, Purchase Ledger Clerk
“I have to say, the recruitment process has been very straight forward. Having you to liaise between myself and X has made things very easy for me and I am very happy with the support you have given me during the whole application process. Thank you Callum!” Catherine, Accounts Assistant
“Matt’s work ethic and enthusiasm puts him head and shoulders above most recruiters I have been in touch with. He is very present and supportive from the early stages of the recruitment process to end, and beyond! I thought I was the only contact number he had for a second…. Within few days apart from our first meeting, he was able to score multiple opportunities for me, one became to be my current graduate job. I am extremely happy and grateful for his help, I am now able to pursue my desired career path without any role compromises. I would genuinely recommend him to anyone but especially newly graduates” Larry, Finance Analyst
“Very professional and understanding, I am currently placed in a job role by Matt which I am really happy with. I would recommend anyone looking for a role to contact Matt as he finds the best role suited for you. Thanks Matt for all your help, really appreciated.” Zubair, Assistant Accountant
“Warwick, I would like to thank you for sorting out the small problems I had and putting me in the right direction for getting them sorted. Your company is the best I have worked with and would highly recommend any of my friends/family or non-friends (lol) to you. I have been very impressed.” Diane, Credit Controller
“Hi Michelle, I just wanted to send this email across to thank you for all your help and support. You have been a great support and very supportive throughout my job search. Thanks for the job opportunities throughout my search and I would definitely recommend yourself to others if they are seeking a job. Thanks again for all your help and support, and I would personally come back if I need help in the future.” Kyle, Finance Assistant
“From start to finish & beyond, Michelle has been extremely helpful, thoughtful & professional in her approach to helping me seek new employment. Regular contact, down to earth conversations & prompt responses enabled me to secure a new role in less than 4 weeks. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a change in employment” Ashley, Accounts Assistant
Having read through the very many positive testimonials, it quickly became apparent that my experience of Abacus was exactly the same as so many others; excellent! It is often said “don’t believe everything you read”. In this case, absolutely do! I can categorically state that Abacus & Jake have and continue to be, 2nd to none in my experience as both candidate and recruiter over the past 17 years. From the first communication and ever since, I have felt and experienced the genuine care and attention that Jake and Abacus offer. Jake really took the time to really understand both my professional & personal experiences and ambitions, and was able to recognise which roles would be a genuinely good fit and ultimately a successful match. Furthermore, understanding my skills and experiences and the requirements of the companies and roles to which he was recruiting, Jake was able to provide credible support in successfully preparing for interview. As you would expect, all communication was clear, professional, open & honest, but also friendly and genuine. I couldn’t rate Jake & Abacus more highly. You will be my first contact for all future recruitment needs. Stewart, Finance Director
My experience with abacus consulting began with a phone call last Spring. I can sum up my experience in a few words….. life changing. My contact Jake Brown has guided and supported me through my journey. He helped arranging the interviews around my work commitments and was with me every step of the way. After being offered my dream job he was in touch on a regular basis and since starting my job nearly six months ago he has kept in touch every few months which I think is a lovely touch. I hope I’m in my forever job but I wouldn’t hesitate to call on Jake or Abacus should I need to find new team members. Judith, Regional Finance Manager
Good morning Callum, I want to thank you so much for finding me a temporary job at X in Wakefield. You have been with me every step of the way and kept me up to date with it all. Thank you, Joanne, Payroll Administrator
I just wanted to say a very big thank you especially to you Warwick, and to Matt and the rest of the team. It’s been a pleasure working with and for you, and very refreshing to get regular updates knowing that you have all been working hard to find my ‘perfect’ job. You have been so helpful and extremely efficient in sorting any problems that have come up. Hopefully, I won’t need to use you again, but if in the future I am looking for another job, I shall certainly be contacting you. Thank you once again for all your hard work. Carol, Purchase Ledger Clerk
So far yourself (Jake) and Debbie have been the most approachable, caring and professional recruitment company I have come across to date. Just would like to thank you for that. Asha, Technical Accountant
Warwick, Thanks again for all your help and support over the past 3 months +. I don’t have much experience of using agencies for employment but the service provided by yourself and those behind the scenes has been first rate. Naturally I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any colleagues/friends looking for work and if I’m looking for work myself in future I’ll drop you a line – Nigel, Accounts Clerk
Hi Jake, Thank you for your email. I had a good day today. Being a new sector for me, lots to understand on operation side. All the staff very nice and co-operative and hope to start contributing productively soon once understood the business. I would like to say that the services which I have received from Abacus was always consistent and professional. Abacus is really a good agency where all the staff are friendly and try to understand the requirements of the candidate. I appreciate your support and understanding and I am always willing to work with you all. Asmita – Head of Finance
I really appreciate what you did and I would like to let you know that I am very impressed by your attention. You really made me feel like a valued employee! Karolina – Finance Administrator
Warwick, I would really like to thank you for all your help. Over the last 10 years I have dealt with numerous Agencies and your service has been the most professional by far. Not only did you help get me the job but the after support from you was great too. Thank you so much, I have never had such a professional service. I will be telling my friends to come to you. Good luck for the future. Thanks again. Heidi, AP Supervisor
Thank you for your help in finding me a new role Michelle and I would recommend you as a recruitment company to anyone. Fiona, Accounts Assistant
I want to thank you for all your help and support for the past few months Matt. It was a pleasure to work with you. I need to say that you are one of the most professional agents I have worked with for the past few months. I will definitely get in touch when I’m looking for a new job again. Izabela, Finance Assistant
Thank you for everything Warwick. I will come down and see you I need to say thank you properly.It’s been amazing to work for you and everything has gone so smoothly! You are by far the best recruitment consultant I’ve met! Sanj, Processing Clerk
Thank you so much for all your help and support through my job search. I’ve worked with a few agencies in my time and you guys (Debbie) have been the best hands down. Robyn, Finance Manager
I have to thank Abacus and Warwick as the knowledge I gained when temping for you at X has helped me secure this role. Please pass on my regards to Warwick and the rest of the team, you have definitely been my favourite agency to work for. The support and guidance were second to none. Cathy
I just personally want to say a big thank you to you (Mo) and Katherine for your support & kindness and for finding me what sounds like a wonderful opportunity. This is the only time in my working life that I have ever been out of work, which came as a massive shock to me. It also dented my confidence when I was told I was not ‘Up to Standard’ by my previous employer, however on meeting Katherine she re-assured me and helped me to realise that the role was just not right for me and that I am right to put my family first too. There are a lot of unfortunate people out there looking for work and I can honestly say that with your help I have been one of the lucky ones. I thought that it would be very difficult to find work due to the current climate but your pro-activeness found me my new position within a week of registering with you. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for work. Sharon G., Assistant Accountant, Dunstable
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Abacus Consulting to anyone looking for a new job. With other agencies i felt like simply a CV on a database but with Abacus i always felt looked after and it was no surprise when they were the ones to find my new role. From day one Mo really took the time to find out what i was looking for and what was suitable for my next move. Mo always kept in touch and gave me confidence that she was working for me to find the right role. Looking for a new job can be tiresome so it was great to find someone who could really help and make the difference. Rob
I would like to say what a great service Abacus provided you surpassed all expectations. You really understood what kind of role I was looking for and what type of company I wanted to work for. You only ever contacted me with jobs I was interested in and always kept in touch during quiet times in between interviews so I didn’t feel forgotten. I had complete trust and faith in your judgement and it was such a refreshing change from my past experience of employment agencies. I recommend your services now to anyone I meet in need of a new job and I will definitely be back in contact should my situation change. Julian
It’s so scary! They have flown by! I really do appreciate all you do. Your fantastic!! I dealt with many agencies whilst unemployed, and I can hand on heart say Abacus (especially yourself) were a breath of fresh air. Helen
Firstly you kept me informed of all the roles by email even though there was nothing suitable for me. This kept me assured that you still had me ‘on file’ and if a suitable position would arise I would be informed. None of the other agencies did this so you already had stood out from other agencies. That contact is important to anyone seeking alternative employment. Secondly, from the point of contact made by yourself through to me starting my new role, you were attentive throughout. In my opinion there are no areas to be improved! Even my colleagues, who as you know were appointed by Abacus, think you are the best recruitment agency by far. Teresa
I have recently been working with Mo to secure my new role. Throughout the process Mo has always been there to provide me with advice and guidance. Mo’s work ethics are excellent and she would always be honest about any career moves that I have spoken to her about. I trust Mo implicitly and class her more of a friend than a business partner, thanks Mo for all your help and advice over the years and cheers for finding me this latest opportunity. Nikki
I am happy to say that I would recommend Abacus, this is my 4th time over the past seven years that Abacus have placed me at. They know me very well and have been able to place me in a job which they know is suited to me and that of the company. I find the staff to be very helpful and friendly and that they are very good at what they do the members of staff that I deal with have also been with Abacus for a long time. I have dealt with the same recruiters throughout my time using them as an agency. A very big thank you to Mo for putting me forward for this role and for all the support she has provided me. Pat
Abacus Consulting offer an extremely professional service whilst at the same time treating each candidate as an individual with unique circumstances. I have been very impressed with the long hours that were put in to finding me the right job. I had no doubts that Abacus would get me the position I wanted and I will always recommend them. Jo
Thank you for all your help it has been very much appreciated. I will miss your calls to see how I am getting on. I will definitely recommend you and Abacus in the future. Karen
Just wanted to thank you and the staff at Abacus for the kind assistance and understanding shown to me while I was looking for employment I always felt that you really did have my interest to heart and that meant a great deal to me. Thanks to you I have a great new job in a super company with really nice people. I now look forward to coming to work every day and enjoy the challenge ahead of me. Once again my thanks to you for your genuine concern and care that you have shown. Ann
I finally made the decision to start looking for a new job and chose to use Abacus Consulting. I have used them before and have always found them to be very friendly and helpful, providing me with valuable feedback. I found this to be extremely useful as it enable me to fully prepare for interviews. Recently I got offered a position which I don’t think I would of got had not been for the advice from Abacus Consulting. Garri
I joined Abacus to further my career development and met with one of the Bedford team. We bonded immediately and they soon got a feel for the position I was looking for. I was successful in the first interview secured for me and have been with my new company for 6 weeks. Abacus Consulting played a major part in finding me the perfect role. Maxine
I would like to say that I am very happy with the position that I have accepted. This is exactly what I was looking for and you couldn’t match my requirements better. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and all your support in the last two weeks. I am very impressed with Abacus Consulting and yourself. Your work was very efficient, professional and no time was wasted on my part. I did not expect to be offered a position as quick as I have been so you can imagine how pleased I am.Yet again, thank you very much for all your help and support and I sure will recommend you and Abacus Consulting to other people as I know you will find exactly what they are looking for. I wish you all the best for the future. Ewa
I have liked everyone I have met (Staff members) I think being honest with your candidates is the key to Abacus’s success and the fact that you got the extra mile for your clients and candidates .. When you know you have an honest/Hard working Candidate, they are worth going the extra mile for, which I thank you for, ADR group and myself (I think) is a good match. Lisa-Marie
Thankyou for seeing the criteria of the job that would suit me. I’d definitely recommend your agency to any of my friends searching for a job. Kayleigh
Very impressed with the service that I received from Abacus Consulting. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely an agency that I would use in the future and also one that I would recommend to anyone seeking employment. Kirsty
My experience finding a new job with Mo was positive throughout. From our first meeting Mo was honest and professional, while still having a personal touch that has been somewhat lacking when dealing with other recruitment companies. Mo quickly suggested roles where she thought I would fit in well with the people and the company, rather than just putting me forward for every role she had and it has been a very successful process. I also found the level and frequency of communication was spot on. I would highly recommend Mo and Abacus, the service provided was significantly better than that of the other companies I have dealt with. Gary
