Claire approached me after finding my profile on LinkedIn. Her initial communications were very informal and succinct, and I had an immediate affinity with her. As the discussions progressed both she and her colleague Anthony helped me through the initial interview process. All questions and concerns were addressed quickly and they ensured to keep in touch throughout.

The whole process was a very smooth and personal one, and I would be more than happy for them to represent me again in the future.

Chris Wright is, by far, the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with. His patience, attentiveness and kind manner made me feel calm and confident all throughout the recruitment process for my new job.

The fact that my new employer and myself were right for one another was very clear - but Chris was the one that connected us perfectly. If you need a recruiter that has your back, look no further: you’ve just found him.
— Clara Parada, User Researcher, Ayup Digital
I worked with Claire from the very beginning of my application and I cannot speak highly enough of the level of support and professionalism she provided throughout.
This ranged from finding the time to meet for a one to one to discuss the opportunity at the company to follow up calls after my interview and the first couple of weeks in the position.
As much as Panintelligence was looking for an Implementation Consultant, I was looking for somewhere like Panintelligence and Adesse helped join us together.
I’ve never felt more confident going into an interview and would recommend having Claire and Adesse in your corner!
— Steven Orant, Implementation Consultant, Panintelligence
One of the best recruiters I’ve worked with over my career, Claire really has stood head and shoulders above the rest. Her professionalism, commercial acumen and complete understanding of the importance of workplace culture mean that she not only finds the right challenge for a candidate but she is able to place them in an environment in which they will thrive.

Claire contacted me about a role she thought would suit my profile. Between my response to her and the day of the interview, Claire really took the time to get to know me, taking specific care to match my personality and abilities to the role and workplace. Claire and her team were available throughout the process of moving me from my 7 years of comfort zone into the new challenge that I so desperately wanted.

I feel right at home where I am now working. This is solely attributed to Claire’s outstanding ability to match the culture of the workplace with the candidate. Claire has continued to support me since my start date and I will most definitely be recommending her and Adesse Search to any/all of my friends and colleagues.

“Adesse Search are fantastic recruiters who really get to know their clients. Quality not quantity of candidates which is fantastic for us and saves so much time”


— Zandra Moore, CEO Panintelligence, Female CEO of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year
I didn’t think recruiters like Claire existed. I’ve worked with a lot of recruiters and Claire is the only one I would work with now!

I’ve worked with Claire as both a customer and a candidate, both experiences have been awesome. As a customer when I was recruiting for the very first time, she helped me understand what sort of person I was after then sent through only those she knew were a good fit. She somehow managed to make the recruiting process enjoyable, every interview was fun in its own way, and she helped shape my interviewing style. As a candidate, Claire made the whole nerve-racking process of going through interviews and negotiating following the job offer so much easier!
— Jessica Rhodes, Cloud Architect, Panintelligence, Leeds
“Thanks to the expertise and guidance of Anthony at Adesse Search, I was able to secure a lucrative Business Analysis contract, and would not hesitate to work with him again”
— Andy Neve, Business Analyst, Leeds
Claire is a hard working & intelligent recruitment consultant. She is a friendly & smart consultant. She secured a great DevOps role for me and stayed in touch after I started the job.

Claire is a very organised & competent recruitment consultant. I enjoyed working with her & I look forward to working with her again.

I would recommend Claire to anyone who is looking for an efficient, organised and intelligent consultant.
— Erdem Sahin, DevOps Architect
Claire represented me for a role recently and I have to say it was an excellent experience from start to finish. Claire is extremely friendly and very easy to work with, and she obviously cares a great deal about both the clients and the candidates she represents.

The process with Claire was open and honest at all times whilst also being extremely well organised and professional. By far one of the best experiences I’ve had of working with someone in recruitment. I would highly recommend Claire as a recruitment professional and would definitely be very happy to work with her again in future.
— Mark Hetherington, BI/MI Financial Systems Specialist
Claire and the team at Adesse provide a true partnership approach. Claire invests her time and skills to get to the heart of what I need for my team, whether that’s technical skills or cultural fit. She acts as brand ambassador for me, and is relentless in tracking down and engaging with the very best people for my requirements.

She provides market intelligence, and advice where needed, but more importantly, makes recruiting a pleasurable experience.
— Mark Robinson, Development Delivery Manager, StepChange Debt Charity
Before working with Claire, I thought all recruiters were the same. I was inundated with CVs from recruiters who, despite having a description of what skills I was after, sent me CVs for completely unsuitable candidates. Usually they didn’t have any of the skills we needed or were looking for a salary far above what was available.

Claire, however, took time to actually find out what I wanted. Not only in terms of skills and salary expectations, but regarding the candidate as a person. The difference between what Claire asked me about my ‘ideal candidate’ and what all other recruiters asked was amazing! From the start it felt like Claire was looking for someone I (and the rest of the team) could work with and get along with every day rather than just ticking skill-related boxes. It meant Claire found candidates who were an excellent fit in terms of skills, personality and enthusiasm. It also meant interviews were very enjoyable as candidates were the sort of people Claire knew I’d get on with!

It’s obvious that Claire cares about what she does and about finding the perfect candidate. I won’t use any other recruiter for future roles – everyone else pales in comparison!
— Jessica Rhodes, Cloud Operations Lead, Science Warehouse, Leeds
“I have worked with Claire in my current and past agencies and have used her to headhunt, seek out and engage with key hires that I needed.

”She understands the brief and always finds the right people by thinking slightly differently than other recruiters. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire for your recruitment.”

— Andy Park, Creative Director, Creode
“Claire has been a huge part of finding a new role and she has supported me through the whole process, from our initial discussions about the role to actually starting in my new position. She has always made sure everyone involved is up to date and comfortable with what is happening and she has constantly offered her help and guidance, which is always relevant. She has helped me promote my strengths and understand how I can be successful in my career. Claire is also very warm, friendly and welcoming, which has also made the whole experience much easier.”
— Catherine Whincup, Test Analyst

“Working with Claire was a refreshing change.

”When I was looking for a new role she worked hard to find one that was actually suited to me rather than simply sending me every role with a matching keyword. During the interview and on-boarding process we spoke regularly and I always felt like she had my best interests in mind. Finding a new job in development would be a far less frustrating task if all IT recruiters followed Claire’s example.”
— Mark Watts, Software Engineer, MooD International

“Claire headhunted me for a project management role at Sky Betting & Gaming. I found Claire to be extremely professional, personable and a pleasure to work with and she went the extra mile meeting with me to ensure the role was a good fit for both myself and the organisation.”
— Diane Bedford, Sky Betting & Gaming

“Claire called me about a great job opportunity. She was fantastic throughout the whole recruitment process, ensuring I was provided with the correct level of support and information throughout each stage of the process.

”Claire first ensured the role was the correct ‘fit’ for my skill set. She provided guidance on interview techniques. This was really beneficial considering it was the first role I had applied for in 10 years and my selection process skills were ‘rusty’. This coaching ensure I had greater confidence to meet the challenges presented from the selection process.

”I am normally very wary of recruitment consultants and whether they really have their candidates’ best interests at heart. However the service Claire provided made me feel like a valued individual.”
— Michelle S, Project Manager, Leeds
