"As HR Manager for an Independent Firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers in Sheffield, having sound relationships with specialist recruiters in the area is extremely important. I was impressed when Caroline took the time to come and learn about our HR Strategy, our culture, product and service offerings and vision for the future, so that she may have a better idea of the type of employee we are looking for and the type of individual who will enjoy working with us. As a result, our first project together was very successful."

"We have used CRA Consulting to recruit both temporary and permanent members of staff. Both roles were handled professionally and Caroline took the time to come and meet with us to understand our business and the type of person we were looking for. As a result, we did not waste time interviewing irrelevant people and we were extremely happy with the individuals we recruited."
Stephen Bennett, Finance Director, Bedford & Havenhand Ltd
My experience of using CRA Consulting has been really positive. They asked lots of questions about my specific requirements to ensure they were clear on the skills any candidates would need to have. The calibre of the candidates put forward to me were excellent, and CRA discussed them with me individually prior to them being selected for interview. CRA kept me and the candidates informed every step of the way, and were always willing to go the extra mile to find the right people for the job. Even now I’ve successfully recruited to the position, CRA have continued to stay in touch to ensure the process is smooth. I would highly recommend CRA Consulting, and will be returning to them in future.

The quality of the candidates has been extremely good, with them having a good knowledge of the credit control function. The CVs have also been accurate which enabled us to establish an idea of the candidates prior to interview, as a result of this we have to date employed two people that you have put forward for interview.
We will definitely look to you if we have any further requirements for staff in the future.

Maria Simpson, HR Officer, Nabarro
CRA Consulting have an excellent understanding of our business and our recruitment needs. They offer fantastic support throughout the recruitment process: promptly sending through carefully selected CVs which meet our brief, providing good background information on their candidates and helping us to ensure we recruit the right person for the role. There is no pressured sales approach and CRA don’t feel the need to bombard us with phone calls and CVs. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to other businesses in South Yorkshire.
