I've worked with The Advocate Group on a number of roles whilst at boohoo.com and found the team to be a great recruitment agency to work with, they have a great knowledge of the market and have placed some great candidates with the business.

The Advocate Group have worked on two recruitment assignments for our company, a National Account Manager based in the UK and Sales Director for Europe. They have delivered a high standard of service with both roles, neither of which were easy or straightforward.
It has been evident throughout my dealings with The Advocate Group, that they have put a high level of effort in and shown their focus above and beyond with their hard work. After a few brick walls, they took a step back and reviewed the options. This resulted in valuable and creative solutions bring put forward.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Advocate Group, they are resilient, true grafters and in summary, they earn their fee. We will be using the consultancy again with any future Sales vacancies

Having worked with a number of recruiters over the years, as both a client and a candidate, it is always refreshing to find an agency that stands out from the crowd. Without a doubt, The Advocate Group certainly does.
Professional, thorough and great communicators, The Advocate Group listens to a client’s brief and ensures that their focus is on providing a candidate, who closely matches their needs and wants. This means that as a candidate you arrive at an interview, which matches your skill set and experience and are fully prepared.
Conversely, as a client, you receive an interviewee, who is ‘fit for purpose’. Their post interview and/or post placement follow up is equally as impressive.
A refreshing break from the norm.

The Advocate Group gave the impression that they were on the ball from the first time we spoke about an interim role they were placing.
He secured that role placement and has been meticulous in everything they have done to support my clients since.
I would recommend the team at The Advocate Group because of their efficiency, precision and energy.

The Advocate Group is one of those seemingly rare agencies who actually listen to your career plans and then works hard to help you achieve them.
My assigned consultant went above and beyond what was required, assisting me through every step of the recruitment process, they were always available, even at weekends, and genuinely cared about you achieving your goals. I would absolutely recommend The Advocate Group to anyone looking to make that next step in their career.

Working with The Advocate Group is an absolute pleasure. The team are extremely personable; they are incredibly well connected and know their profession and subject matters inside out.
As a business I consider them to be consummate recruitment specialists, they ensure they develop a deep detailed knowledge of the client in order to deliver the correct match of candidates - right first time. I hired The Advocate Group for a head hunt project with fantastic results.

Hiring remote based staff in a foreign country is always a very tough challenge. We recently worked with The Advocate Group to fill a UK based Sales Manager position, and I was very pleased with the outcome.
I am usually a bit skeptical about handing over an important search to a recruiter who may not be familiar with your company, job functions, requirements, and culture. However, The Advocate Group quickly grasped everything, and did an outstanding job in providing us with a slate of highly qualified candidates very quickly.
They also spent plenty of time with the candidates, properly preparing them about the job and the company, which made the interview process a lot more efficient.
Group Manager – Dorian Drake Int.
I have hired the team on numerous occasions over the last couple of years to recruit senior commercial personnel within our business. They have always understood the brief well both from a commercial and cultural perspective and provided a shortlist of quality candidates suitable for our business.
The team consists of highly professional and credible recruiters whom I enjoyed working with and would have no hesitation in recommending. A rare find in the overpopulated arena of recruiters!
HR Manager – Vivalis
I have worked closely with The Advocate Group to recruit key personnel during a time of change through acquisition at our company.
They were sensitive to the changes taking place but remained focused and determined to find the perfect candidates for our commercial roles.

The Advocate Group has invested a huge amount of time getting to know our brand, from the company history to the day to day culture, which really makes a difference and sets them apart from other recruiters I’ve worked with. My assigned consultant has delivered a selection of high calibre candidates in a timely manner for a variety of roles. Their excellent communication, integrity, efficiency, and sense of humour has not gone unnoticed. I will certainly continue to work with The Advocate Group going forward.
I can't recommend The Advocate Group enough for their hard work and persistence when it comes to delivering the right candidates for roles within the e-commerce industry. My consultant’s inside knowledge and fearless determination in approaching the right people means you're always presented with ideal options when recruiting for new team members. His attention to detail and commitment to the search are unrivalled - even taking calls on his holiday! He'll be my first call next time I'm in the market without a doubt.
