HR Assistant Manager at a Top 50 Practice

Savant is a pleasure to work with. Always very personable and professional...taking the time to understand the recruitment requirements of the role but also the culture fit. They understand the demands of a HR team and accommodates with patience and a smile. Long may we continue to work together! 

 
 
 

Project Manager for a leading global Investment Bank

We would be happy to have Savant to provide candidates for new roles through our contractor desk. The roles in question required a specific skill set and experience in terms of development of core IT architecture, for which we know we will only find a limited pool of suitable consultants in the market.  Savant sent us 12 CVs from which 42% of candidates where selected for a 1st interview, which was one of the top performers compared to the other suppliers were in contact with. Savant was able to source excellent candidates in terms of skills and experience for our budget.

 
 
 

CFO for a global branding, marketing and design consultancy

Professional, not pushy and behaving like a top end executive search company rather than a run-of-the-mill recruitment agency. Savant listened to and correctly interpreted the brief, quickly and painlessly identified and closed the process with an excellent candidate, with regular, but not pushy, communications with all parties throughout. I would use Savant again and highly recommend thier services. 

 
 
 

Finance manager for a leading entertainment company

I would recommend Savant as we have used them in the past and this was a quick placement. in just two weeks Savant were able to find different (suitable) candidates, set up an interview and finalise everything. They carefully select the most suitable candidates and do not inundate us with too many CVs. Savant is very attentive to their customers' requirements and provide a very one of a kind service, overall they are friendly, professional and personal. 

 
 
 

Financial Controller for a leading UK Charity


Would definitely use Savant in the future because the service provided was not only professional but personal too and efficient. The temp they provided was productive and efficient and I had no issues with the administrative procedures.

I would rate Savant's service high. Perhaps more importantly I liked the fact that the communication was kept to the minimum. No weekly/biweekly checks on the progress of the temp. This can be a nuisance especially during busy periods.

 
 
 

Credit Manager for an international freight forwarding company

I would use Savant in the future because I have built up a relationship with the company. Savant are professional and easy to work with, there was no pressure, as is the case with most recruitment agencies. The service I have recieved from Savant tops any recruitment company I have used before.

 
 
 

Senior Finance Manager for UK's leading shopper media agency

I would use Savants services again as Savant was fast, attentive, and they provided me with a wide range of candidates on a short time scale. I would recommend them as in this recruiting job, time was a real focus as we wanted to employ someone as soon as possible. Thanks to the great work from Savant we were able to get a bunch of candidates sent over, run a series of interviews, and make a job offer all within a fortnight of meeting Savant.

Other recruiters I have used have been very salesy and will hound me with calls/emails etc. even when I have no job spaces to fill. Savant were never pushy or overbearing, and this is one of the reasons I will be choosing them for future jobs rather than other agencies.

 
 
 

Head of Tax for a leading chartered accountancy firm in London.

I would use Savant again as the service I recieved was honest and more personal than other agencies I have used. The best aspect of the service was the attentive approach and the understanding of the practice.

 
 
 

Financial Accountant for a global entertainment company

I will be using Savant again because they deliver the exact candidate I need in very short period of time. They are very helpful, reliable, approachable and pro-active toward soucing the right candidates.

 
 
 

HR Manager for a Mid Tier Practice

I have found Savant to be a very straightforward and honest recruiter and I appreciate their friendly and upfront approach. They were very responsive throughout the process, coming back quickly on queries and I would happily work with them again in the future.

 
 
 

CFO for an AIM Listed PLC

I would use Savant in the future as I found the consultants proactive, they tailored the candidates they submitted to match our size and scale. There is plenty of competition however, the personal relationship is key. With Savant we have this and I would highly recommend their services.

 

 

 
 
 

Director of Internal Audit for an IT Hosting company

I have worked with my contact at Savant over the past 12 years and he has placed more than 10 audit professionals with me. He fully understands my requirements, is hugely collaborative and presents his candidates extremely well. 

I would absolutely recommend Savant to my colleagues and contacts as I get a great service and a friendly and personable approach  above other recruiters. Savant take the time and effort to build a relationship and to understand the needs and requirements of the recruiter. Savant is far above the rest.

 
 
 

Head of Internal Audit for a leading Utilities firm

I would continue to ask Savant for support with recruiting members of the team as they have found good candidates in the past and have shown commitment to understanding both my requirements and a good fit for our company. I would recommend Savant as they have shown commitment to understanding my industry and business and the skills we would need for developing a first rate Audit & Assurance service.

Ultimately there were good candidates identified for the roles on offer. On a personal level, the consultants have been easy to get along with and showed commitment to our objectives. The better agencies, like Savant, are becoming more effective at building longer term relationships with clients, rather than simply being there when a vacancy comes up. Such that, if a “good fit” candidate comes up we have the option to consider them even without a vacancy.

 
 
 

HR Business Partner for a Telecommunications Company

We have been impressed by the way that Savant have operated in the short time that we have been working with them. From the outset, they spent time to understand our requirements, even travelling to the north to meet us on a face to face basis to ensure that they fully understood our culture and role in detail.  The domain that we operate in can be challenging in regards to recruitment but Savant show a great understanding of this market and they continued to search actively for candidates and each was represented with detail on their background and expectations.  We had regular updates on the progress of the process throughout. We have now successfully placed a new employee into our business as a result of their efforts and would like to say a massive thank you to Savant.
