Our candidates and clients are testament to our service so let’s hear it from them.


Simon Wake has been a pleasure to work with. His no-pressure style and willingness to communicate on my terms is a refreshing change from the industry standard of daily phone calls. Simon also paid attention to what I was saying and sent through a limited number of candidates who aligned very well with my needs. This was great, because it meant I didn’t have to spend hours sifting through CVs.

After interviewing a few candidates from several recruitment agencies, ultimately, we employed someone that had been introduced to us by Calibre. Not only are Calibre great to work with, but they also produce quality candidates.

Overall, I’m very pleased to have worked with Simon and Calibre and will hopefully get the chance to work with them again in the future.

Sean has been really approachable and never failing to understand my requirements from an employer even when I’ve declined certain companies and roles that I haven’t thought would suit me. I would definitely recommend Calibre’s excellent services to others.

Sean has helped us with a number of positions now and has consistently provided us with quality candidates a number of who are now valuable colleagues. Sean is friendly and easy to work with and we look forward to expanding the success of our business with the support of Calibre Search.

Excellent service provided and would definitely recommend Pete and the team over at Calibre. They kept in touch, good communication. Arranged 4 interviews with the team in 2 weeks leading to 2 job offers. Can't do much better than that! Excellent team, know the market and the contacts. Good to know the team were fully behind me getting another job, and the right job as well.

Rob has taken the time to understand our design departments, values, structure and personalities ensuring that potential candidates are not only competent but fit in with our team. Rob consistently performs when given challenging briefs for our very specific candidate requirements.

Calibre, and Cory Taylor in particular, have become my “go to” recruitment consultants thanks to their friendly and professional attitude and also because they always seem to deliver the right people when others can’t.

Calibre is a friendly, hard working company who listened well to my needs and provided an outstanding position, which reached everything I asked for and more.

I definitely felt cared for while under Simon’s watch and felt assured that with his professionalism and persistence he would provide, and he did just that.

Excellent service. Lucas went above and beyond to secure me the right position with the right company to match my skill sets and interest. He always put in the extra effort and kept me posted daily. His consultative approach on the interviews approach and technique was great. My experience using Calibre Search and Lucas as my agent was 10/10!

With some recruitment agencies you get the feeling that the agent may be doing what works best for them, Lucas did the opposite and helped me on my next career move. The service Calibre Search said they promised they provide, they delivered on.

Sarah was really helpful in finding me a new opportunity. Having worked in recruitment myself previously I am all too aware of what bad recruiter looks like and how they are only concerned for hitting targets. Sarah was completely the opposite and provided me with impartial advice as to what opportunities were best suited to me. Her understanding of the digital agency market in Leeds/Yorkshire is second to none making her a key extension for many agencies/candidates to get the right cultural fit as well as skills/experience.

I have worked with Matthew from Calibre on numerous positions within my team over the last four years, and have always found Calibre to be a professional recruitment partner, sending only appropriate candidates and providing timely updates and feedback following interviews. Matthew has developed a strong knowledge of not only the skill set required at our company but also the right personality fit for our fast growing company which helps ensure the right candidates are recommended for interviews. They are our first point of contact whenever we have recruitment needs within the business.

Communication. All too often, as a Client, we have to chase agencies for information and updates. Simon was very good at keeping me updated and also in requesting updates without appearing to be pestering...!
