What our candidates say about us

  • My consultant was great and really helpful in my transition to a non-academic role. He was well organized and always informed about the different positions/companies that perfectly matched my interests. I really liked that he kept me always updated about the status of my applications and made sure that I would be 100% prepared for the interviews. I would definitely recommend my colleagues and friends to use Seltek if considering to transition from academia into industry.

  • Thank you for being so thorough and attentive throughout the recruitment process, for this role.
    You truly are a great ambassador for the industry and a true credit to Seltek Consultants.

    R.G. Scotland
  • My consultant was the kindest and most helpful recruitment consultant I have been in contact with since graduating from university. She immediately got in touch with me after I applied for a science position advertised through Seltek and wanted to understand my personality, my knowledge and experience, what kind of job I was looking for and my interests/ambitions before determining the type of profession I would be best suited in and foremost enjoy.

  • At all times I have found Caroline to be reliable, hard-working and conscientious, able to communicate easily with the candidate the key points during the interview process. She demonstrated to be keen in finding job position that can fit perfectly with my profile.
    Summarizing, I can say that she is an example of incredible professionalism.
    Thank you Caroline

  • The Seltek team took the time to learn what I was interested in, and what would suit me. They found me appropriate jobs and helped me with my interview preparation thoroughly. The advice and support I got was very helpful during my career change, making it smoother and providing me with a job I’m very happy doing.

  • I have over 20 years of sales experience and have 8 years’ experience of interviewing for my current team but “my consultant” gave me advice of how to answer questions that made me question my preconceived ideas. I value constructive advice and “the consultant” demonstrated his ability to help me put forward my strongest side.

    K.N.Hereford & Worcester
  • This was my first experience with a recruiting agency and I have to say it couldn’t have been better, Caroline helped me building my CV, found me a suitable position and helped me in every single step of the interview process. They are also helping me to relocate for my new position and they made sure everything was smooth during the whole process, so for me they did a superb job. I could not ask for more.
