• A&D Recruitment Candidate Testimonials


I’d like to thank Alessia for going above and beyond my expectations. She’s extremely professional, fantastic with her follow-ups, and makes the candidate feel very valued. She’s an asset to A&D, and it’s been an absolute pleasure working with her.

I had the pleasure of being called by Darren with a job opportunity. He was very knowledgeable about the industry and put me forward for an interview. The communication thread and professional manner was matched by his attention to detail, and I’m very happy in my new role. This guy is the ‘Matchmaker’ when it comes to recruitment! Thank you again Darren for your help and guidance in making sure me and my employer were right for each other.


I would like to thank you for everything you’ve done for me since starting my new role last April, and for all of your advice prior. It’s been an absolute pleasure. A&D have been the only recruitment agency that have genuinely really helped me.

Darren is the best recruiter I’ve ever met! He provided me with an insight into the industry and demonstrated how my skills would be transferable – which in turn made the interview easier. Darren also contacted me before my interview, which in my opinion made a huge difference. I’d recommend Darren to anyone who is looking to get into the renewables industry, as he has the right tools and experience to help land you with your next role. 

John R Project Manager

Darren was approachable, understanding, knowledgeable and efficient in helping to secure the right role for me.
As well as being a great guy, he is passionate about working hard and getting people not only what they want, but what they deserve. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Jamie A Sales Manager

From day one, Darren took care of everything. He was very informative and kept me up to date with all the details I needed to make the important decision. I would not hesitate to use Darren and his company again, as I found the whole experience a good one.

Darren R UK Sales Manager

Darren helped me move onto the next stage of my career, demonstrating insight into what I required as an individual by matching me with a company that mirrored my beliefs and expectations. He provided me with a future career path that I follow to this day.

Mark B Sales Manager

I’m proud to recommend Darren at A&D for the service he provided in recruiting me at the right place with the right package. He gauged me well, beyond what was on my CV, and this also helped the employer to feel confident in their selection. Thank you once again for the opportunity to recommend Darren – a very impressive young man.

Riaz S Estimating Engineer

I cannot recommend Darren highly enough – he was so thorough, so professional, so very helpful and made me feel extremely confident in my own ability to do the job prior to interview.

Kim R Business Development Manager

Highly recommend! Very helpful and friendly. Alessia is an asset to the company and went the extra mile to find me the perfect placement. She was always at the end of the phone when I needed her!

Lyndsey O Administrator

I first engaged with Alessia and Darren in March 2011. Initial contact reassured me that they were no run-of-the-mill recruitment agency; they presented a far more consultative business style, reassuring me that I was working in partnership with a focused team rather than just being another candidate. Darren’s immediate and clear understanding of my skills led to a meeting with one of his most valued clients, which resulted in a very exciting engagement for me. Alessia and Darren have a natural ability to think strategically and see the ‘big picture’. They share a great mix of skills, coupled with an excellent business ethic and strong moral compass. I have no hesitation in recommending A&D and I look forward to working with them again – hopefully as a client and not a candidate!

Martin A Director

I recently found myself looking for a job, and in the current climate the options didn’t seem great. Having drawn a blank with the internet and newspaper, A&D was the first recruitment agency I tried. I was treated like a real person and not just a number, and after two interviews I was accepted by the company I applied with. Thank you, A&D!

Rishi L Sales Manager

A&D Recruitment is a cut above the rest. They offered a personal and efficient service which makes the candidate feel top class. Amazing experience! Thank you so much for all you have done for me.
