Food Recruit Testimonials

What Our Candidates & Clients Say

Scott thought my Linkedin Profile showed the skills he needed to fill a role he had been asked to recruit for. He approached me and talked through the role, we had a really interesting video interview which was sent to his client along with my CV. Boom, 2nd interview arranged and job secured. All the way through Scott was there to talk me through the process, giving me just the right level of information on the company and the job , to support me. Excellent support and result all-round.

Julie Bean - Customer Service Change Manager

Not only Scott but the company as a whole are that step up that the recruitment industry needed and I do not mean in food recruitment only, I mean across the board. They have a genuine want to help both client and candidate. Thumbs up from me.

Peter Banks - CEO

What you need when you are recruiting is someone who understands your requirements, who can put themselves in your shoes as they sift through the masses of CVs for the candidates that are appropriate for your needs. Anybody can throw CVs at a client, but very few can throw the right ones and the certainty that the skillset and cultural fit are aligned to the client’s needs. With Scott you get someone who has the industry knowledge within Procurement & Supply Chain, he just gets it because he has done it, he also has integrity in abundance, something that can be overlooked as we play our part in the "recruiting game". Other recruitment organisations should take a good look at themselves and understand you don't need sales people to recruit, you need subject matter experts who know what their clients are seeking. Would I use Scott again? Absolutely, in a heartbeat! If anybody reading this needs to talk to me about Scott and the value he will most certainly add to your search, just call me on 07875 166492, always happy to help

Andy Neilson FCIPS, FCILT

The successful appointment of a Procurement Manager was the first time that we have worked with Scott. We were attracted by the entrepreneurial nature of his approach and his commitment to delivering a personal service in an energetic, passionate and structured manner. Scott took time at the start of the process to really understand the brief, taking time to talk to various stakeholders to the role and to get a feel for the culture of our business. We had regular reviews during the process with open and transparent communication culminating in a strong candidate list and with Mark Southall joining us this week. Great outcome!

Head of Supply Chain - First Grade International

Scott has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to dealings with executive recruitment consultants, he was from day 1, Informative, helpful, prompt & supportive. other 'bigger' companies promise you earth & tell you that you are their 'focus' but then deliver nothing or are nearly impossible to get hold. Scott was always on the end of the phone & available at any time & realizes the importance of communication. Could not recommend him highly enough. His success in this somewhat fickle industry is in no question & he deserves the recognition he receives

Head of Procurement - First Grade International

I found Scott to be really helpful in finding me an exciting job opportunity. He was informative every step of the interview process and I felt supported throughout. Cant thank food recruit/Scott enough.

Executive Assistant

Scott has helped and guide me through the whole process of looking for the right job. Really happy with his agency.

Line Leader - TMI Foods

Many thanks to Scott. He was a big help throughout the whole process and showed great belief in me which, in turn, provided me with the confidence to go for the job opportunity. His knowledge of both the company and the role was a great help to me in preparation for the interview process. Would highly recommend.

Supply Chain Planner - Westbridge Foods

Scott has genuine hands-on experience of running complex supply chains in a fast paced food environment, which proves invaluable when it comes to understanding both the roles and the candidate skill-sets required. This gives Scott the advantage of having access to candidates that other recruiters may not see from simple CV searches. Very effective at head-hunting candidates that are not active in the market. Would 100% recommend Scott

Supply Chain Manager - Westbridge Foods

Opposed to other agents, Scott actually read my CV before phoning, and when he did, he asked me the correct questions, we got on really well and then off he went, wasting no time at all. There were a few minor hurdles along the way, not from Scott’s side, but he went above and beyond to secure the job for me, within 2 days. Scott was always professional and also kept a sense of humour, which goes a long way during this tough COVID period. Therefore, speaking as an engineer with 30 years experience, who struggled for 5 years to secure the ‘right’ job, I can truly recommend Scott Williams.

Field Service Engineer - SF Engineering

Very helpful from start to finish, very quick to respond every time I had a question! Cheers Scott.

Multi Skilled Engineer - Dairy Gold Food Ingredients

Scott contacted me via Linkedin to discuss my situation. He kindly offered to send me a CV template which I have filled in and have returned to him to help find my next role. Scott has been informative, supportive and a breath of fresh air. I would recommend him to anyone in my position or as a employer. Best of luck Scott.

National Sales Manager

Scott is an excellent recruiter to deal with as a candidate. He is attentive, detailed and is highly supportive during the recruitment process. He always takes the time to answer any questions and keep you informed. I can highly recommend Scott

Bryan Hagan - Managing Director

It is an absolute pleasure to work with Scott. Open, honest, collaborative and communicative, Scott mixes utmost professionalism with humour and personality which makes the (often painful) process of finding top talent a pleasant experience. Scott takes the time to fully understand the needs and personality of the organisation before recommending candidates, but still delivers within often very often tight timescales. I look forward to working with Scott again, and have no hesitation in recommending him to support your executive search.

Head of HR - Whitworth Bros

Scott has been a great help, in my job search. He has taken the time to review my CV and offer advice on future roles and career paths. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for a new role,or just advice in general on next steps in their career.

Scott did an absolutely tremendous job in helping me gain new employment. From the first call, he was a pillar of support, providing me with clear and concise information about the prospective employer and giving prompt and relevant feedback along every step of the way. Thank you Scott, it's been a pleasure.

Supply Chain Manager - Helios Ingredients

I have always found Scott to be tenacious, hard-working and a solutions driven individual who possesses a ‘can-do’ attitude. He is an approachable and sociable individual and I have no hesitation in recommending him to any business as he would be a valuable addition to any forward-thinking company.
