We are always delighted to receive testimonials from our clients and candidates. Please see below for some of the wonderful comments which confirm to us that our vision and values at InfoSec People really do help to change people’s lives for the better.
"I have worked with contract agencies for 7 years, working with InfoSec for 2 years. They are by far the best agency I have ever worked with. They worked really hard to get to know me, my experience and my requirements. Throughout my time with their client they consistently advocated for me, supporting me through any difficulties I had. I have been disappointed to leave certain clients before but never have I felt that way about moving on from an agency until InfoSec. They will be first call next time I am looking for a new contract." - Joel Abbott, Consultant, April 2019
"…I feel it is important to outline the outstanding work Sophie has done in terms of securing a position for myself. It was refreshing to see a recruiter not only had read my CV but also has my interest at heart. I am so impressed with the professional and personal approach to the point which I have now recommended InfoSec to my old company and other candidates going forward. Please pass on my gratitude again to Sophie and thank you for going the extra mile." - Parm Dhillon, Candidate, April 2019
“…During this particular round of prospects, InfoSec People were one of four different recruiters I was dealing with, and two of the four recruiters did not provide me with an end-to-end experience. What Chris and the team at InfoSec People did for me was to keep me posted. Plenty of follow up calls and encouraging advice, whilst listening carefully to my requirements and any concerns that I voiced. The bottom line for me was simple, I felt I was treated as importantly as the clients that InfoSec People were looking to make placements into.” – Paul Thomas, Candidate, March 2019
“The "brand" of the service from InfoSec People was personable but professional. I really cannot say enough good things about Charlotte. She was a fantastic asset to the business. InfoSec had correctly matched my capabilities and experience with an excellent opportunity, with a great company, and represented me in respect of the role. I got excellent support in the build up to the interview, prompt responses to any questions I had and if I could not get through to the consultant a call back was always quick to come. ” – Wayne Bairstow, Candidate, January 2019
“I found Hayley to be very patient and respectful of my time. I was able to think things through and ask any questions. There was no pushiness or forcing me into making decisions or attending meetings on dates and times which I have experienced in the past. I found Hayley to be very knowledgeable on the client she was representing and able to answer every question I had. I would definitely look to work with InfoSec People again, the whole experience has been a positive and streamlined process which I would recommend to friends and colleagues.” - Kuljit Chauhan, Candidate, November 2018
“InfoSec were very good in taking time to understand my own professional and personal objectives prior to suggesting their role. From start to finish, my experience throughout the entire process has been a pleasure with InfoSec. Everybody who answers the phone, speaks to you in a friendly and helpful way…I didn’t feel like I was just another stock candidate, sat on the recruitment conveyor belt.” - Glenn Fitton, Candidate, October 2018
It was a real pleasure for me to work with Ben! He is amazing person and definitely knows how to do his job! Because of him and his professionalism I got my dream job! Even out of his working hours, he was always happy to speak with me and advise me. I will highly recommend Ben to everybody who wants to communicate smoothly with a consultant and find the best matching job for himself. Ben you are a star! November 2017
Ben has consistently supplied high-calibre candidates for some difficult roles and provides this service with enthusiasm and dedication. It has been a pleasure dealing with Ben in the past and am sure that he will continue to satisfy ongoing recruitment needs in the future. I would recommend Ben for his understanding, commitment and infectious personality. October 2017
Ben was one of the only recruiters to pick up my CV, talk to me, and really figure out where I wanted to go. He set me up with several awesome companies; instead of just giving my CV to every company out there. Ben made himself available for me even way out of hours (even once during his holiday, my bad) - and went way above what I expected from him.
I’d recommend Ben to anyone who was looking for someone to truly learn about them, their position, and what they’re looking for - he’ll line you up with some amazing positions. Awesome guy, would love to work with again in the future. June 2017
The communication with Ben was outstanding, he always kept me up to date and I never felt alone during the process. I’ve dealt with many recruiters but he was the one that believed in me and did everything to get a great proposal and a great job. I’d really recommend him. He was energetic and dedicated during the process and helped me get the job of my dreams. May 2017
Emma has been instrumental in getting me my new role. I am very impressed by her effectiveness and her integrity during the entire process. I especially respect her for the way she treats the candidate - in a way that you feel you are ‘an end’ rather than a means to an end’. I dare say that this type of respect is quite rare in the current recruitment industry in the UK. I cannot recommend Emma highly enough. Well done. April 2017
Having worked with and through recruitment agencies for the past 10 years, I can honestly say that none come close to the level of dedication, efficiency and partnership approach that Sophie has demonstrated. Most recruitment agencies take a quick glance at your LinkedIN profile before putting you up for a role (without asking you!). On the other hand, from the first conversation, it was clear that Sophie knew my profile better than I did! She took the time to really understand what I wanted from a role and I am convinced that she acted as my advocate right through the process.
In addition, unlike many recruiters, she hasn’t ‘cut-n-run’ as soon as everything is signed. Proactively, she has kept in touch throughout the contract, checking that I am still happy and doing all she can to make it a success. I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are looking for a recruitment consultant to work with, Sophie should be top of your list. Infosec are a great team and Sophie is surely one of the best. April 2017
Emma from INFOSEC was extremely helpful in finding my first contract role. Emma helped tremendously with the whole process of setting up my company and getting my first contract, which I was so glad for the help as it is quite daunting the first time around. If you’re looking for your next role and want to talk with a friendly, honest, professional consultant give Emma a call. April 2017
Sophie was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process of finding me my new role. I’ve spoken to a lot recruiters in the past and I can honestly say that working with Sophie meant that it was efficient and hassle-free. She took on board what I was looking for and put me forward for the perfect role that resulted in me accepting an offer. Throughout the whole process I was always kept in the loop on progress and was regularly in touch to see how I was getting on during my notice period. She was extremely lovely to talk to about my concerns and excitement. It felt like it was a chat with a friend rather than a recruiter which was really lovely! Thanks for all your help! I would be more than happy to recommend Sophie to others who are looking for new roles. Dec 2016
Emma is an excellent recruitment consultant. She took great pains to understand what I was looking for and to match it to an ideal opportunity. During the recruitment process she made sure I was always aware of what stage the process was at and actively kept the process on track and progressing at a pace I was happy with. Emma was genuinely concerned with placing me in a role that would give me what I was looking for, in my case a better work/life balance. I would happily recommend Emma to anyone seeking a new position. April 2017
Over the last 4 years I have worked with InfoSec People on several projects and I have nothing but praise for the way in which Chris conducted his business and himself. Chris has liaised between myself and the end customer, taking the headache away from the procurement and HR elements, allowing me to perform the IA role that I was engaged to do. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris as a business partner to anyone. Nov 2016
Capable, effective and trustworthy, Chris’s highly professional, positive and helpful approach ensures that both clients and candidates are professionally represented to a very high degree. This, combined with his infectious enthusiasm, dynamism and a high degree of personal integrity means this is a recruiter you can trust to “go the extra mile” for you. I would be extremely happy to recommend Chris to friends and colleagues without hesitation. Jan 2017
James has recently helped me find a new position in the Information Security field. James was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He kept me in the loop at all times and was always quick to respond to any queries I had. I was very nervous throughout the process but James was quick to quash any worries. He thoroughly prepared me for my interview and made various suggestions around the topics which may be covered. I quickly learned James has a very intimate knowledge of the industry and at times I even wondered if he was more suitable for the role I was applying for than me. After all was said and done I even received a bottle of champagne in the mail from James. I would recommend James’ services to anyone in the Cyber Security community looking for a new opportunity. Feb 2017
I had dealings with Sophie in obtaining my latest Contract Test Analyst role.Sophie was my contact at InfoSec and was professional and a pleasure to deal with throughout the onboarding process. It was very refreshing to deal with an understanding and proactive recruiter who made the selection, interviewing and joining process easy. I would recommend Sophie as one of those recruiter you will enjoy working with to secure your next role March 2017
