Testimonials

Our candidates and clients have been shouting about us and here are a few examples

Niraj Kapur | Director of Sales

“Stef helped me secure a role as director of sales at G-Smatt Europe. I’ve spent a lots of time working with recruitment companies and Stef was a real pro.

He listened to what I wanted, only offered job specs that were beneficial to my career and offered support and advice through the interviews. More important, he did something few recruitment consultants have ever done – he called me on the day I started to wish me luck, then 4 weeks later to ask how I was getting on. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stef to work with.

Tony Preston | Project Manager

“My experience with Baz Green was extremely positive, I was unhappy at my previous company and turned to recruitment as a means to forward my professional carrier. Baz was the most professional person I dealt with.

He was extremely thorough establishing my skill set and what type of company, position and project values I should be applying for. We met in person to finalise these details, after which Baz put me forward for a some tailored interviews. The interviews I attended were perfect for the development I was looking for, we discussed at length the interview process to ensure I came across in the interviews the correct way.

My third interview with my current company has not only given me the development and pay structure I hoped for, it also led to two promotions, I can honestly say that I’ve never been happier in my career.

Baz is extremely knowledgeable and very personable, unlike other recruiters I dealt with he understands the industry, which was very quickly evident. He helped me understand my own skill set and the best way to move forward to achieve the goals I desired.

I’m sure Baz will be of great value moving forward in his own career and highly recommend him.”

Phillip Wisdom | Construction Site Manager

“Baz is an excellent recruiter, he took a keen interest in all my previous positions and made sure the job he was recommending was perfect for me and right for the company. The whole process of arranging me an interview to the job being offered took only 1 week.

He has great communication skills and made sure everything was taken care of for me. I would definitely recommend using Baz to anyone.

Michael Cole | Finishing Manager

“I contacted redfish the day I got laid off from my previous employer,
within 2 days they had lined myself up for an interview. I got offered that role and was back working within 2 weeks !!

I found redfish to be very professional and eager to get me back to work as soon as possible and always on the end of the telephone should I need to contact them (not many other recruiters are!)

Thanks redfish you were a great help”

Louis Bristow | Assistant Quantity Surveyor

“Stef takes a lot of pride in his work, and really puts in the effort to help you as much as you can when looking for a new position. Even while I was in Australia, Stef went out of his way to arrange interviews for when I was back and continously kept me updated with what was going on. He helped me find some great positions within some great companies based in and around London.

If you are in the already in the construction industry or looking to get into it, Stef is a great contact to have and will go that extra mile to helping you get where you want to be.”

Nigel Bunker | Project Manager

“redfish is a very positive, pro-active company who arrange first class and relevant interviews while communicating effectively through the whole process of finding a new position.”

Ricky Unasa | Quantity Surveyor

“As a new graduate from Australia, I was finding it difficult to get my foot in the door as a Quantity Surveyor in London. I signed up with 2 other recruitment agencies (Randstad and Linear Recruitment) prior to meeting Stef and his Redfish agency, and I can happily say that Redfish is a much better agency in all aspects of recruitment.

For 3 weeks prior to meeting Stef, I couldn’t even get one interview lined up from my other recruiters. The day I met Stef and discussed my CV in detail and the direction I wanted to go, he already lined me up with 3 interviews. From those 3 interviews, resulted in 3 job offers. I am now employed as a Quantity Surveyor at Fitout UK and I couldn’t be any happier, thanks to Stef and his staff at Redfish.

I highly recommend Stef and Redfish’s services, as they are the best in the business. They are there to get you what you want with no time wasting and they are looking out for your best interest at all times. 10/10.”

Keith Kirby | Senior Bid Manager

“I met Stef last year when I was searching for new opportunities. He immediately struck me as a knowledgable , trustworthy individual who would look after my best interests when looking for opprtunities. The one that he brought to me was real and with his guidance I was able to negotiate a position.

I cannot speak more highley of Stef than to say how painless and positive I found the process of engagement with him. Thanks Stef.”

Mark Whittaker-Smith |  Assistant Project Manager

“Totally professional in his approach to placing me in my current employment. Stef maintained constant communication throughout my application process, interview and followed up immediately after my interview.

Stef provided constant feedback and provided top tips prior to my interview as he knew the client well. I would recommend Stef to any one who is looking for guidance or a placement from a dedicated recruiter and recruitment team.

Katrina Singcuenco | Design Manager

“redfish were proactive from the get go and I had a interview date confirmed within days. They offered guidance and support throughout the whole process.

They really gave plenty of thought into matching my academic achievements and personality with the job role, and ensuring I would be a good fit as it was a career change for me.

Due to redfish’s professionalism and attention to detail, I am very happy with my new role”

Adrian Ichim | Building Manager

“redfish very confidently saw I was a very good match with what their client was looking for. The client was not disappointed as I got the job straight at the interview and I was what he was looking for.

I think it takes more than just selling/pitching to get the match right between what both clients and what they want.”

Mauro Persic | Quantity Surveyor

“I had the pleasure of working with Stef during my recent career transition. Stef is a true professional with an abundance of industry knowledge and contacts in construction industry.

He had arranged all my interviews and proactively searched for a most suitable role. Moreover, he provided me with constant support in the period of transition to the new employer. Therefore I give him my highest recommendation.”

Laura Skinner | Surveyor

“I first spoke to and met Stef whilst working for Ardmore Construction as an Assistant QS. I was looking for a new and challenging opportunity following completion of my BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying and hoping to make the progression from Assistant to Project QS.

After discussions with Stef to find out what my goals were and the kind of company I wanted to work for, he presented me with detailed information about Bouygues UK and the prospective role. He then guided me through two interviews and helped me to overcome the difficulties I experienced when making the transition from one company to another.
I have now been working for Bouygues UK for 6 months as Project QS and I couldn’t be happier.

I cannot recommend Stef enough to anyone looking to make the next step in their career. He approached the process with complete professionalism, but with a friendly and personal touch.”

Simon Rowe | Commercial Manager

“Baz offers a great service that provides the best deal for both the candidate and his client. I would have no problems recommending him to all. “

Gordon Glen | Health & Safety Manager

“Baz was very professional and diligent but above all helpful in securing my new job. Many thanks.”

Andy Sheppard | Sales Manager

“Thanks Baz for all your help with finding work so quickly in London. You made the whole process of relocating much easier and was able to assist with arranging interviews in advance of my arrival in the country!

Really appreciate all the help and for getting me such a good range and variety of positions. Was really great that we were able to find a role that was the best fit for me!”

Max Clark | Head of Operations

“I have used Baz for several years now as a recruiter and have had some excellent candidates through him.

Baz, unlike some others, takes the time to really understand your requirements and find candidates that fit.

Very easy to work with and would recommend without doubt to others.”

Joseph Elder | Construction Project Manager

Baz is probably the best all round Consultant I have come across, he would regularly keep me updated, if he couldn’t get hold of me by phone he would send a text, he never bothered me at work and kept utter confidentiality throughout which was very important to me. Baz took the time to understand me as a person and he knew the employer inside and out. This meant that I could be certain that the move was the right one and not going to waste everyone’s time, I am convinced this converted into a less stressful interview.

Baz is a calm, collected and emotionally intelligent individual who takes his time to get things right. I never felt pressured to make a decision nor that his commission or sales targets were his motivation or agenda.

I am very pleased to have met with Baz and feel that he was personally fundamental in securing my next role. When I am next recruiting for positions I will certainly be looking to Baz to find the right candidates.

Yvette Boston | Project Manager

“Baz is a great communicator and I felt his prompt action and responsiveness throughout my recruitment process made the job hunting process a joy. Thanks Baz.”

Sally Holman | Project Administrator

“I would highly recommend Baz, the service that he provided me with to allow me to change my career after 14 years with the same company, has been second to none. Baz is extremely professional and his timings and responses absolutely fantastic. I cannot thank him enough.”

Chris Conrad | Project Manager

“Baz has provided me with exceptional service and great communication throughout the recruitment process. He got me a job within only a few weeks of meeting his team at redfish.

He has gone above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and was well prepared to start in my new role. Highly recommended.”

John Windsor-Smith | Construction Manager

“Having recently been involved with recruitment agents for the first time after a 35 year career, I found Stef Davies and the team at redfish to be far superior to others and I recommend their services.”

Alister Gray | Quantity Surveyor

“I graduated as a quantity surveyor in 2013, and after working for a high end residential contractor for nine months I was looking for a change. I applied for several positions, one of which was advertised through redfish. Within a couple of days I received a call from Stef.

Rather than simply looking at my CV and informing me what positions were available, Stef took the time to understand what I was looking for in a job and recommended positions that were suitable for me. He explained how working for different companies would affect my career progression in terms of the experience I would gain working with different people in different environments and organisational structures, and also gave me advice on how to approach the job seeking process.

Within a week I had two interviews arranged in London, and whilst down there I also met with Stef who took the opportunity to further dig into my CV and experience so that he could offer jobs tailored to my needs. Both of the interviews resulted in a job offer, and I owe this to the fact that the positions were right for me. I also received assistance throughout the negotiation process, and I was kept informed of how things were progressing from job offer to acceptance.

Ultimately, I was impressed by the service offered by Stef, and I’ll be sure to give him a call in the future should I be looking for another position – although due to the quality of the job I have been offered, I don’t expect that to be anytime soon.”

Terry Elliott | Site Manager

“My personal experience working with Baz at redfish has been incredibly positive. He was readily contactable and always available when I needed him to be.

Baz fully understood what sort of role I was looking for next, ensuring the positions he put forward were right and relevant for my onward move. He was professional, cooperative, and sensitive to my current employment circumstances too, making the transition from one role to the next, easier.

I couldn’t rate Baz and redfish highly enough”
