Kerry takes the time to really get to know and understand the client, the needs of the business and the finance team before suggesting some excellent candidates. Kerry is involved the whole way through the process and stays in touch once the new recruits are in post. My team has been very positively transformed thanks to Kerry, thank you!

Both Alexander Daniels and Aamnah have been absolutely fantastic to me since the day I signed up with them. Aamnah really took the time to find out more about me and used that info to find the best position to fit me into (which she did!). So I just want to say Thank You Aamnah and AD for absolutely everything that you’ve done and I am so so grateful and happy to be in my dream job.

Nick Singh sourced an initial 3 month contract position with a global client, which we then developed (together with the client) into a successful 27 month relationship spanning a number of distinct Project Finance follow-on roles.Communication, feedback and administration was seamless throughout the period, over multiple contract extensions, queries, umbrella company and PSC changes. When you call Nick, invariably he's either there or responds back literally within minutes - a really refreshing experience and a real, true support throughout the contract term.Nick Allinson BA ACA

Nick at AD has recently helped me with finding a new position as a Commercial Finance Business Partner. Despite being pigeon holed into Audit roles due to my previous experience, Nick made sure he understood what I wanted as I transitioned my career from Audit to Commercial Finance. He made sure he kept in contact with me, and only sent me roles which would fit into my criteria. I did not make this an easy job for Nick, but he persevered and eventually we secured my position in a role I am really looking forward to. Throughout the recruitment process, Nick always ensured I was prepared for my interviews and was great at providing tips to ensure I performed my best. It has been a pleasure working with you Nick, thank you for all your help!

Kerry has taken time to get to know our business and as a result understands exactly the type of candidate that will fit our culture. This approach not only makes the recruitment process more effective but means that the successful candidate has an accurate view of our business before they accept an offer, making them much more likely to succeed in their career with us. Thank you!

Nick and all of the team at AD are absolute first class. Not only are they fantastic at what they all do but they also go out of their way trying to either secure the absolute best candidate for your business or supporting you to find that dream role. Working with Nick, Laura & Sam closely over a number of years has made me realise I wouldn't choose anywhere else.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Kerry Sheerman as a candidate. She was exemplary throughout the process and really understood both my and her client’s requirements to ensure it was mutually agreeable outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Alexander Daniel’s and in particular Kerry to fulfil your requirements whether it be in a client or candidate capacity. Thank you so much Kerry!

I was kindly invited to the annual pub golf event on Friday 1st December. AD are one of the few recruitment teams still doing these social events for their client base. The team always make everyone welcome, introduce you to new people to build relationships and network, plus you get to meet up with old friends and AD colleagues. Such a great bunch of people love them to bits. Looking forward to the next event I get invited too.

I have worked with Nick for over 20 years. He is one of a very small group of trusted consultants who invests time and effort to fully understand what we look for in a candidate. He provides a level service and professionalism which is invaluable when building a high performing team. I would thoroughly recommend him to any prospective client

I got an interview & the job from applying independently, so although the interview weren't through this recruitment, I was given continuous help and support as I was super nervous with interviewing after 7yrs. Amnah Ikhlaq answered so many questions I had plus assurance, and conversations felt so comfortable like I had a very supportive friend by my side. She even gave me a practice interview when I requested. Couldn't recommend enough! 👌 thank you so much ✨️

The process was super smooth with Sam. Sam suggested that he would be able to place me with a job I would like by the end of the month, which came true! Sam helped me with the preparation for the interview and was there every step of the way. I would definitely recommend everyone to use this agency as they have a great portfolio of jobs and are very professional and friendly. Sam is super easy to get along with and I always felt comfortable to be open and honest with my ambitions and the type of role I would like to secure. Thank you so much Sam!

Massive thank you to Laura for the time & advice given to me during the interview process. From answering all of my questions with a real genuine & helpful response each time to meeting me in a coffee shop down the road from my interview an hour beforehand to help settle the nerves, she really supported me throughout. Above all else she understood me as a person / candidate & gave me confidence that I didn’t have in myself. The role I interviewed for I unfortunately didn’t get but it gave me a positive confidence boost knowing what kind of roles were out there.

I worked with Alexander Daniels as a contractor for 3 years before securing a permanent posting with one of their clients, their agents always ensure that their contractors work experience are matched to the jobs specifications. And pre interview conducted improve chances of landing the post being placed for. My big thanks to Laura R for her supports in ensuring that worksheets are submitted and approved for payments on time, and her constant calls to ensure that any concerns are address. Alexander Daniels is definitely a world apart from other employment agencies.

If there was more than 10 stars, I would give to Laura! She was very instrumental in securing me an ideal position with a wonderful company located less than a mile from home.Given my circumstances at the time as a newcomer to the country, this was incredibly convenient.She took time to listen and understand what I was looking for. To my pleasant surprise she secured me an ideal position as per our discussions.You get a sense of comfort when dealing with her because she engages and gives feedback. This is exactly what a jobseeker needs.I consider myself blessed to have met a recruiter with the kind of work ethic and professionalism that she has.

Laura was the recruitment consultant who I dealt with and from start to finish, she was always at the end of the phone if I had any questions or for advice. I was put forward for a few roles which I felt was the right level and fit for what I was looking for and unlike some other agencies where I felt like I was making up the numbers this meant I found my new position quickly. I would happily use Laura again if I was ever to move on but hopefully that wont be for a while now Im happily settled in my new position.

Dan has been my agent for years and he has always been great. I told him what role I wanted and when it became available he got me an interview straight away. If you need an agent that will only send you relevant roles, Dan's your man!

Just wanted to a huge thank to Laura and the rest of the team. Alexander Daniels Recruitment contacted me based on my resume that I posted online. They introduced their company and matched me with a great position that they believe was a good fit with my qualification and experience. She was really helpful, always following up and provided useful information that allowed me to prepare myself properly for the role advertised. She was there every step of the way. In a matter of two weeks, I was able to secure a brilliant opportunity that I am very excited about. Thank you.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Kerry Sheerman for a number of months now. I have found her professionalism and approach to the recruitment process a breath of fresh air.Kerry took time to get to know me as a person, not just a job title which allowed her to put forward jobs that she knew would be a good fit for me. I feel that Kerry shared the excitement and enthusiasm with me when she introduced me to the role I have now received an offer on, from the first communication I have bene nothing other than impressed.Thank you Kerry for making what is always a stressful process as easy and enjoyable as possible. Will definitely be recommending you and your firm.

I first met Nick Singh and the AD team in early 2020 and since then I have come to consider them one of my most trusted contacts. They apply an unrivaled level of personal service, whether they are actively recruiting for you or not, maintaining visibility and friendly faces. I have always been impressed by the candidates they have sent to me and they will always be my first (and only) point of contact as an external recruiter. I couldn't recommend them any higher!

I had a call from Lisa for a couple of potential job opportunities. Lisa approached me in a very professional manner, was never pushy, and really listened to what I wanted in my work-home life balance. With having been out of the ‘interviewing stage’ for a long time Lisa helped me prepare in a relaxed environment, and checked in with me at crucial times throughout the interview process. After securing the job role, Lisa has continued contact to ensure that I am happy - this is wonderful service as you truly feel like the Alexander Daniels want exactly what is best for you, and you aren’t just a number! I would recommend Lisa to anyone searching for a finance role 100%
