Testimonials from clients

‘I have worked with Jo and her team at Rockford since 2007 with both confidential and open assignments. Jo personally has been a great support through both her extensive knowledge of the market and her exceptional network which has enabled Elior UK to successfully place candidates at Senior board, Sales, Operations and Support Function level. This is achieved fundamentally by Rockford priding themselves on understanding both the culture and aspirations of our business. ’

Arran McDowell,
HR Director,
Elior UK

‘ Imagine an indecisive, frustrating, client who demands everything from you and yet completely blanks you for weeks on end; just because he decides to concentrate on things that are apparently more important than the demands he�s put upon you. Would you want to provide a first class recruitment service for someone like this? Working day and night to find fantastic candidates who keep calling you to find out what is going on but frankly you don�t have a clue because you�re being blanked. Well you�ve guessed it; we are that client and Lee at Rockford is our recruitment partner who has delivered our key personnel as he has the incredible ability to deal with the likes of us! So if you�re looking for a resilient, patient and diplomatic recruitment solution then don�t hesitate to pick up the phone to Lee Williams at Rockford Recruitment. ’

John Uphill,
Director Creative Events

‘Rockford Recruitment has supplied BaxterStorey with staff solutions for the last four years. Jo Morgan and her team have worked very hard to get to know our business and its requirements so that they can truly match their candidates with our company style and culture. This results in more successful placements that are essential for a thriving and growing business like BaxterStorey.

I would not hesitate to recommend their recruitment solutions to others.’

William Baxter
Deputy Chief Executive

‘What sets the Rockford team apart is their ability to 'pull a rabbit out of the hat' and solve recruitment problems that are beyond most agencies. On a number of occasions they have found us perfect candidates for international roles where the requirement for a foreign language, alongside the normal skills and experience, left others in the field completely flat-footed. Their service goes beyond bespoke, it is actually quite unique’

David Cheeseman

‘Rockford�s energetic approach, strong service ethic and real desire to get the very best results makes them one of few consultancies that I look to use time and time again.’

Matt Thomas

‘ Jo and the Rockford Team are always our first port of call for all our recruitment requirements. The service provided is second to none and I am always confident in Rockford's ability to provide us with high calibre candidates. Jo and Team regularly demonstrate that they will go beyond the call of duty to deliver at every opportunity and the bespoke service they offer adds a real personal touch which makes every once of difference. I have no doubt that we will continue to work in partnership with Jo and her team well into the future ’

Adam Elliott
The Lindley Group

‘ I have worked extensively with Rockford for the last two years in recruiting various levels of Managers and Executive Chefs for ISS Education. I have had exemplary service and the candidates that have been put forward demonstrate clearly that Rockford listen to my needs and match candidates skill sets well to the vacancy we have had. This strategy has lead to 98% retention of new recruits. Even when we then lost one recruit Rockford went out of their way to find a replacement quickly. In my opinion Rockford is my first choice for Hospitality recruitment. ’

Andre Mans
Executive Director of Operations
Facility Services Education

‘ I have found working with Marilyn and the Rockford team to be a highly effective way of recruiting as well as a positive experience. Because Marilyn has made it her business to thoroughly understand our specific requirements the candidates that Rockford submit for particular roles have always been both appropriate to our needs and well briefed, saving us a lot of time and effort. This excellent matching has happened quickly and with a minimum of fuss. As a result, I have complete confidence in Marilyn and Rockford is my recruiter of choice ’

David Booth
Director Healthcare sector

‘ Having had an association with Jo for the last 14 years both as client and candidate, Jo & her team at Rockford have always delivered top class candidates to meet our ever changing business requirements. What sets Rockford apart from all other recruiters is the ability to really engage with the candidate first and then match that person to the potential role, with great success. That uniqueness requires time & effort from the team and clear communication with the client! This professional and effective approach allows the client to be confident and satisfied that Rockford has totally understood the requirements of the role and matched those criteria with the best candidate. That is why I will always use the services of Rockford Recruitment ’
