Vanrath are a very professional recruitment firm. I have been placed by them on many occasions for temporary roles. They always look after everything very efficiently and always kept me up to date with the process.

For example big shout out to Dan Morgan I got a call from him yesterday morning, teams call with client at 4pm yesterday afternoon, verbal offer at interview and starting Monday morning. Efficient to say the least.

I have also used them to recruit for a junior position and when I contacted them I had CV's over that afternoon, the service from Robbie was impeccable.

They are the best accountancy and finance recruitment professionals and I would recommend them to both an employer or candidate.

Absolutely fantastic. Very supportive and encouraging, makes you feel like you can take on the world. Emma Jane was superb through the whole process and I am very grateful for her support and help and for new adventures awaiting!

As ever, it has been great to work with the team at Vanrath. I was in touch with a number of people in the firm, each of whom went the extra mile, finding roles tailored to my CV and supporting me throughout.

On this occasion, it was Dan Morgan who secured me my new role. He listened carefully to what i was looking for, encouraged me to push the boundaries and actively managed the interview process from start to finish. He has been a wonderful advocate!
