"We engaged The Up Group in a search for a marketing director. They really “got” the brief and fielded candidates with not only the right skills but also of a good cultural fit. We ended up in the rare position of having to make a difficult choice between two great people and are very happy with the outcome. The team also understood the difficult line to tread of who does what in the process of selling the role to the chosen candidate and behaved with integrity throughout."
"The Up Group are a fundamentally different breed of recruiters. I count them as a key advisor not only on my own career, but on the development of my team. They have found me several needles-in-the-haystack candidates, against all odds, all because they get it. They truly understand the industry, and this allows them to match the expertise, skills, and culture of candidates and companies masterfully."
"I've worked with The Up Group on many different occasions in both established and start-up business environments. They work hard to understand the company culture, the nuances of the role and most importantly what success will look like for the role in which we're hiring. I value their honesty in evaluating candidates, their ability to place high calibre individuals and their advice in setting those individuals up for success within the new role. "
