What our candidates say about us

ZFS/Solaris Architect - Oracle Corporation

I was initially contacted by my Square One consultant regarding a new opportunity.  My skills and experience exactly matched the role he was recruiting for and his knowledge and enthusiasm were evident at all stages of the process. He always kept in touch with me throughout and was more than happy to answer any questions I had. Square One is the best agency I've dealt with.

SAP ABAP Consultant- Exxon Mobil

From the outset I was impressed with their understanding of the contract roles and more importantly of my suitability for those roles. They provided accurate descriptions of positions and were always immediately available for help or advice.

Oracle Consultant - Comensura

My experience was excellent.  Certainly one of the best agencies to deal with and I will go back to Square One for any future contract work.

SAP Consultant - Delhaize Groep

My first contract with Square One was perfect, and I will certainly work with them again in the future.

Programme Manager - Monitise

I've been contracting for 25 years, Square One is one of the friendliest, most professional and well run agencies I've worked through.

Gillette UK Ltd

Square One falls into a very rare category within the SAP resourcing space. They not only understand the market and their valued client's requirements, but they go above and beyond in ensuring that the very best candidates are found at extremely reasonable rates. On one particular occasion four resources (The 'A' Team) were located and contracted within 48 hours. We have found all resources to be extremely professional and have delivered exactly what was asked of them. It is a pleasure to work with Square One - an organisation that GETS it!!!

Paramount Home Entertainment Int

Paramount Home Entertainment International Ltd have been using Square One for a number of years now, during which time they have repeatedly used their understanding of the SAP market and of our business to identify many high calibre candidates with excellent technical skills and attitude. All the candidates we have employed through them have been very successful - demonstrating the benefit of recruiting top quality staff.

SAP Development Manager - BBC Worldwide

Square One has always managed to find me the right people for the job, and invariably faster than other recruitment agencies – sometimes within the same day. I have also appreciated their openness and good service – regular check-up calls to see how the contractors are doing in the first couple of weeks of the contract, as well as full disclosure of the margins they are making, and what the contractors are receiving.

SAP Programme Manager - BG Group

Square One provided specialist SAP recruitment services to me whilst managing the Global SAP Programme at BG Group between 2006 and 2009. I found the team to be knowledgeable, effective and easy to deal with, maintaining excellent focus on customer service. They consistently provided high quality resource at sensible rates and with quick turnaround times. I particularly valued their dedicated Account Management Team AND their ability to source niche skills in addition to mainstream resource. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Square One again and highly recommend them.

Global HR & Finance Application Manager - Barclays Capital

Square One is a responsive and personal recruitment company, who take the time to get to know both their customers' business environment and specific needs. They take the time to understand the role and the team into which they are placing people. This means that more often than not we see candidates who are technically qualified for the role and are also a good personality match. What more can you ask for.

Global Recruitment Manager - BluefinSolutions

They offer sound advice and where possible always go the extra mile to exceed expectations. I’ve been especially impressed with their high levels of customer service, professionalism and commitment to building long term client relationships. Quite simply we trust and respect Square One and that’s why they have been a valued Recruitment Partner to Bluefin for nearly 10 years.

Recruitment Manager - Capgemini

Square One have consistently proven themselves to be one of our top recruitment partners; delivering high quality permanent SAP candidates, including those with high technical ability, a good culture fit for our business, and candidates that have realistic package expectations. We often make use of their specialist knowledge of the SAP market to advise us on trends amongst our competition, and they have previously identified new sources of business for our consulting teams. During on-boarding, SQ1’s candidates have uniformly spoken highly of the way they were managed through the process, something which is very important to us in representing our brand and ensuring that candidates are properly prepared when our managers have come off projects to interview.

The results of an intensive internal performance review that we did with all headhunters in Poland engage recruiting for SAP experts. Since we are heavily growing in terms of international business projects.....need to consolidate our headhunters from 8 to a maximum of 2-3 and to entrust only the best with the future search......promote you to this preferred supplier status, which automatically means that would also like to leverage Square One not only in Poland, but also in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic

Resources Manager, Information Systems - BUPA

“Bupa have used Square One for resourcing specialist IT contract roles for a number of years. We have been impressed with their ability to source niche and very specialist resources, delivering within short timescales and in a professional manner.

I have been recruiting a team of SAP consultants to join the new SAP Practice at Capita IT Services, and have been impressed with the way in which Square One have been able to work with us to understand our requirement, find the right level of resource and helped me manage the process through interview, selection and to hire. I would certainly use Square One again for recruitment, and in particular for SAP resources.

Ladbrokes have been working with Square One for over two years and what I've personally been most impressed with is the account team's professionalism and their commitment to delivering a great service. Our challenge is to establish a team with the most talented individuals available in the market and Square One always deliver. The continued monitoring of progress and focus on our needs has ensured the right person is placed in the right role at the right time. Square One is service focused and I would recommend anyone using them both for short and long term needs

Credit Controller

The excellent work environment is so different from other work environments that I have experienced. This is in part due to the friendly nature of the management here, who take the time to support and encourage you to develop within your role. The support I have received professionally and socially from staff and management is gratifying. I believe Square One has an excellent internal framework in dealing with client needs which facilitates developing client business further.
