Thanks to The Advocate Group’s hard work over the past couple of months I have now secured my dream position with an excellent company. This would not have been achieved if it wasn’t for their efforts. The Advocate Group have been a pleasure to work with and I would be more than happy to recommend the agency for any future clientele.

The Advocate Group are experts in their field, this was immediately apparent given their implicit understanding of packaging and the technical skills required across the various disciplines. I had complete trust in my consultant throughout the whole process. Whilst extremely professional my consultant was also approachable and switched on, a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
I have recently utilised the team at The Advocate Group to assist me with finding my next career move. Due to the length and nature of my previous roles I had not been in the job market for 15 years, so I was looking for a recruitment consultant who would take time to know me and understand what I needed and what I could offer a future employer.
From the start I felt I was dealing with an industry professional who had my interests at heart and clearly took time to understood my requirements as to what type of role I wanted.
I found they gave me support/advice allied with consistent clear communication throughout the process. This has resulted in my appointment into a role within a business that fit my initial criteria, in relation to size, culture and aims.
I would recommend The Advocate Group to both candidates and clients and will not hesitate to utilise their skills and professionalism in the future in my new role.

I would have no issues recommending anyone to contact The Advocate Group about being placed or recruiting for a position to be filled
Programme Manager – David Brown Gear Systems
The Advocate Group heavily assisted me to change my career path by successfully marketing me for a role in a youthful but ambitious, developing company. During the recruitment process, they demonstrated a high degree of expertise and proved to be incredibly helpful and supportive.
Excellent communication, they where extremely proficient in solving any queries that either came from myself or from the company involved, ensuring the whole process went smoothly for all parties concerned.
It is clear that they are very enthusiastic and dedicated about their work and I would heartily recommend them for any recruitment activity. I would only be too happy to work with them again.
Senior Manufacturing Engineer – BAE Systems
I was not looking for a new job, I was happy in my role, doing extremely well and had a clear path of progression. However, I was called after seeing my details on LinkedIn. Usually I am wary of phone calls from recruitment companies, however, this time I was pleased as they instantly built rapport with me and also was able to really clearly articulate the opportunity they was calling me to discuss.
They had not rung me with several possible inappropriate jobs, they had done their research and had chosen me for a role specifically based upon the job spec, my talent, experience and future goals and it became clear that this job was for me regardless of my current position.
They quickly arranged an interview over video conference call which was well run and all questions were relevant and well-structured to help understand whether I was right for the role and, just as importantly, the role was right for me.
Within the next week and I had my first and second interviews where they had done everything in their power to make sure I was well prepared. I was ultimately offered the job.
Their support did not stop there however, they really went over and above to help negotiate the terms of the offer and provide clarity on the exact terms and package and help finish the job properly and close the deal.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank The Advocate Group for their openness, honesty, professionalism and willingness to provide a great service and I wish then all the best for the future.
National Account Manager - FMCG Drinks Company
I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the part The Advocate Group have played in securing a new opportunity for myself. This was possible through their ability to quickly understand how my career experiences and exposures could play effectively into meeting the needs of a client, where the elasticity of the role profile required some agile footwork as the recruitment process developed.
The Advocate Group enabled the finer details of the offer to be worked through to deliver me, what I believed was a fair and reasonable outcome for both parties.
Above all else is the simple fact that The Advocate Group has a passion to deliver the right candidate to the right position with the right company.

The Advocate Group has a good perception of their clients skills and where they are best suited. My consultant contacted me regarding a position which was perfect for me. His organisation of arrangements and negotiation skills with the company and myself were excellent with sound advice being offered throughout the process.

Senior Quality Control Operative
My consultant was focused from our first conversation. He reached out to me about a few roles he had open at the time, but together we found one that was perfect for me. He had so much time for me and was really keen to understand how best to represent me going forward.
His industry background was a real asset in finding me my new role and I felt he knew how best to talk about my qualities and experience and how beneficial that could be to potential employers. I'm super grateful for the time and attention he focused on me and would definitely welcome the opportunity to work with The Advocate Group again.
