    - Sales Director, Aydya Group
  • Nikki has been exceptional at helping me build a team from scratch. She has helped me recruit 8-9 candidates in 3 months at break neck speed and they are all fantastic marketing hires so far in terms of technical competency and cultural fit. I couldn’t have done this without her!

    - Regional Head of Marketing, Getir
  • Sean is the single best recruiter I’ve ever worked with when looking for a new job role. Nothing is too much trouble and he keeps you regularly updated, even if the update is ‘no update’. Sean is very professional, yet friendly and goes above and beyond at every stage. He offered me support and guidance with my resignation and also followed up after I’d accepted the role. Very easy to get on with, great at communicating and refreshingly open & honest – I’d thoroughly recommend reaching out to Sean if you’re looking for a new job.

    - Non-Food Candidate Placed
  • It was an absolute pleasure working with Sean. From our initial chat right through to the final stages of the process, he was always there. He would call/text me regularly even if there was no update, reassuring me that this was normal in the selection process. Sean is a total professional but also just a normal guy who makes you feel at ease. I would 100% recommend Sean to anyone who is looking to recruit or looking for a change in career.

  • Sean has helped our business acquire 2 key hires within our commercial team on separate occasions. He fully understood the pain points within our company and presented a well-rounded diverse shortlist of candidates.

We work with him on an exclusive basis and would highly recommend his services to any business looking to hire.

  • I have used Wes at Clear Edge for a number of years now and have always found him to be personable, honest and reliable. I appointed a number of candidates he put forward, including some key top 4 Grocery SNAM positions, who have been excellent employees and he has only ever provided CV’s from candidates worthy of consideration for the roles advertised.

    - Off Premise Sales Director, Halewood Wines & Spirits
  • Wesley at Clear Edge has been recruiting for me over the last few years. There are several aspects of working with Wesley that I recommend. Logistically he has been able to place the majority of my roles with strong candidates who have developed and become intrinsic to my team. Wesley understands the needs I require in a candidate and focuses on the different area requirements when it comes to regional roles. He has an open communication style which supports the speed and agility I require. Not only do I highly rate Wesley’s skills in recruitment I also enjoy working with him.

  • Nikki has definitely found her calling in life. Not only does she have end to end technical knowledge of the areas she is recruiting for, she showed real empathy towards me as the candidate. Going above and beyond to make sure I had the right tools for my interview. Checking in before and after. It was a really refreshing attitude to see amongst the tough place that was the job market!

    - Digital / Ecommerce Candidate Placed
  • Clear Edge have undoubtedly been the best recruitment company we’ve used. They have now placed two senior members of staff within our company. Their success is relatively straight forward, they digest the brief then put forward suitable candidates. Others seem to struggle with this.

    - Managing Director, Louis Latour
  • We recently appointed Nikki to support with search of a Senior Commercial Manager for our Global eCommerce team at William Grant & Sons. I was really impressed with the quality of candidates that Nikki was able to source at extremely short notice, each one of them was on point with the brief we provided. Nikki demonstrated a strong base understanding of eCommerce & presented a good mix of candidates. Based on my experience I will definitely be using Nikki for all future searches & would highly recommend.

  • Matthew Marshall at Clear Edge very quickly understood our requirements when Barfoots engaged him in a search for a Commercial Account Manager. The candidates selected for us were first class and met our requirements. Matthew constantly kept us in the loop and gave good feedback at each stage. I would recommend Matthew and Clear Edge to anyone looking to recruit in the fresh produce industry.

  • This role was of critical importance and as a result we met with a number of executive search firms and carried out a thorough selection process. We appointed Clear Edge as our retained recruitment partners where they carried out an executive search on our behalf. With their help we secured a top calibre Sales & Marketing Director.

  • From the start Clear Edge impressed us with their professionalism and determination. They identified and sourced the right candidate from the right background with the right experience in a short period. They then facilitated the recruitment process throughout until the person started with us. I have no hesitation in recommending  Clear Edge as a first class recruiter for any FMCG commercial roles

  • Having spent over 25 years in Logistics Operations I have finally found my perfect role as an Operations Manager with help from Clear Edge. After speaking with them, they could clearly see my knowledge and experience within the world of FMCG operations. They understood my expertise was within Transport and Warehousing and from this they introduced me to an exciting opportunity and guided me through the process which thankfully led to me being successful in my application.

  • Andros UK have worked with Clear Edge over the last 12 months or so and during that time they have made a number of successful placements with us. As a key supplier, they offer a professional and thorough service, and always provide a strong shortlist of relevant candidates to interview. Clear Edge give us regular feedback throughout, which allows us to manage the recruitment process effectively and secure the best candidate possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clear Edge to any prospective client who are looking for an efficient, proactive recruitment partner.

  • Clear Edge were appointed as our retained recruitment company for the placement of 3 regional sales managers. This was based on an earlier placement of a National Account Manager with our business. Unlike other recruitment companies, Clear Edge took the time to visit our business and understand our very specific needs. A great deal of time was spent researching our market and searching for the ideal candidates that would fit with our culture and all 3 placements are performing well and have integrated themselves well within our business. I would have no hesitancy in recommending Terry and his team to other organisations looking for a personal touch and not just the usual barrage of CVs without consideration for the role or company.

  • We have worked with Clear Edge to source a team member for our National Accounts team. Having met with them I was impressed, and they went on to do an excellent job for us. They did not forward lots of candidates, which is often a frustration with recruiters, but a very select few that were a good fit for the role and allowed us to appoint someone quickly. Throughout the process they were consultative and communicative, and I would have no hesitation in working with them again.

  • Clear Edge were successful in helping to create and secure a tailored position, utilising my related consumer electronics experience to identify an opportunity that will allow me to develop within a product / brand context. Throughout the process they remained patient, professional and were a refreshing change to the typical recruitment consultant.

  • Sean contacted me a month ago about a role, I wasn’t interested in this role, however just last week he contacted me again for another role, this one I was interested in and yesterday I was told I was successful and have the job. The level of service, support, communication and so much more has been honestly brilliant!
