“We appointed Montgomery Watt to assist us with a couple of senior hires within our Finance Team. We were initially impressed with their in depth understanding of both Finance and the Telco sector. They asked lots of intelligent questions and rapidly developed a good understanding of our business and what we were looking to achieve. They also took time to understand the culture of the business and ensure that they understood the kind of people we were looking for too. In both instances they presented excellent candidates who exceeded our expectations. The process was quick and they added real value during the offer management. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.”
“We engaged Montgomery Watt due to their in depth knowledge of Transformation and their network. We had 7-8 vacancies to fill in order to meet the business’ requirements and we up against tight deadlines. Duncan and Claire provided expert insight and advice during the initial fact find and were immediately able to identify suitable candidates. Within weeks of engaging them we had made one offer and had a healthy pipeline of talent. Over the next 6 months we worked exclusively with them to fully populate my team. They provided excellent market analysis and salary advice during bi-weekly review meetings and only provided credible candidates. Working with Montgomery Watt took the pressure of me and my management team and allowed us to recruit effectively and efficiently, I would therefore not hesitate to recommend their services.”

“I asked Duncan to come and help us at BT when we were recruiting a number of consultants for our in-house cost transformation practice. We were finding the recruitment process extremely challenging and needed an injection of market and industry expertise. Duncan came on board and over 15 months brought in over 60 top tier candidates. His understanding of our needs and his ability to see potential in candidates allowed us to broaden our search and tap into new talent pools. His candidate management skills helped re-invigorate our brand and re-shape our offer to the market. Duncan is a true business partner, demonstrating a great work ethic and a genuine passion in helping us building our team. I would not hesitate in recommending his services.”

“I wanted to thank you for helping me build my CV. After your consultation I sent my CV out to a few recruiters and directly to some employers in my sector and managed to get five interviews in a space of a month. During the interviews the feedback back about my CV was very positive and I received two permanent job offers from the five interviews. Overall I have to say I am very satisfied with the service I received and that the fee was well justified. I will without a doubt recommend your service to any friends and colleagues seeking help with their CV’s.”
