As a staffing and IT recruitment agency, Certes has a 30 year successful track record delivering UK wide IT and comms staff, as well as staffing services and recruitment support.
"We have a single source recruitment agreement with Certes which we have been operating for the past three years, and in that time we have recruited all of our new employees through Certes. We have agreed favourable and flexible payment arrangements that have been constructed to suit our needs. But more importantly Certes have been able to produce a short-list of candidates from which we have always been able to make a selection from. This has saved many days of senior staff time that used to be wasted on fruitless interviews. The developers that we have recruited through Certes have completely met and exceeded our expectations. I can fully recommend a single source recruitment agreement with them."
Managing Director, Global Mobile Solutions Software House
"Certes is a high calibre recruitment agency that takes the time to understand the specific needs of each and every recruitment campaign. Without exception each and every candidate placed by Certes has exceeded my original expectation. I would strongly recommend Certes if you require a professional, reliable, communicative recruitment agent that delivers results."
Resource Manager for a large public sector organisation
"Certes waited very patiently for more than a year to be given the opportunity to work with our organisation. They never used aggressive tactics like many recruitment companies have a tendency to do, they simply maintained an acceptable distance and level of communication, remaining very professional and helpful at all times. Having been given the opportunity to work with us as a preferred supplier they have provided us with an honest, professional and effective IT recruitment service. They have also added value to the service they have offered by providing regular advice and information about the IT recruitment market conditions."

IS Operations Manager, National Transport Organisation
"Certes waited very patiently for more that a year to be given the opportunity to work with our organisation. They never used aggressive tactics like many recruitment companies have a tendency to do, they simply maintained an acceptable distance and level of communication, remaining very professional and helpful at all times. They invested time to understand exactly what we needed from a preferred recruitment partner and when an opportunity presented itself, they took it with open arms and more importantly delivered against their promises. They are my first choice for every recruitment need."
Head of Professional Services. Leading IT Reseller
"Certes have been our preferred supplier for the last few years. They have continued to give us an honest, professional and effective IT recruitment service, providing high quality candidates for a variety of roles. They are always our first port of call for both permanent and contract positions - one of the main reasons for this is that, as a company they are easy to do business with and have an effective grasp of our requirements."
Director, Technology Division - Major Management Consultancy
“I would highly recommend Certes to anyone looking to progress their career.
If I had questions or concerns the research consultants were able to deal with them quickly and efficiently, and always with my best interests in mind. The position they found me was just what I was looking for; the company, job role, salary and location were perfect. Throughout the whole process I received a constant stream of communication and assistance from Certes. I was given advice and feedback from the interviews as well as impartial assistance when it came to negotiating the final package. They even provided me with some template resignation letters to help me hand my notice in when I was offered the position! It was great to have someone I could talk to about the various stages of finding a new job; it really did take a lot of the stress away from it.”
“My experience of Certes started with a call one evening from one of their consultants. He had seen my CV out in cyber space somewhere and off the back of that decided to give me a call on the off chance I maybe interested in a vacancy that he had. What I found very interesting was not only the job that he explained to me but the fact that he took some what of a risk in calling me due to the fact that I had no previous experience in this new role environment but had some of the necessary skills. Thankfully due to the consultants’ professionalism and persistence, and a combination of my excitement and eagerness for the role, he secured me three interviews and in the end a fantastic new job.
I cannot thank him enough for his regular informative contact, all delivered with ‘real’ perspective and always exceptionally professional. Brilliant.”
"Certes got in touch via phone and made the initial enquiries about my skill set and discussed the job in question. The consultant paid particular attention to my life and work experience to date, and my career expectations and commuting distance, all important factors in employee satisfaction and retention. He was the only recruiter I spoke to in my job hunting who did this from the start. By the second and third phone calls an interview was set up at the client company site. I was accurately prepared for what to expect (an entry test and informal talk) and was able to give my best at interview. After the interview an offer was made. The consultant then negotiated for a week between myself and the client company while pay details were agreed. During this entire three-week process I felt well-informed about progress, had the feeling that the job prospect was a realistic one and that the consultant had my best interests and his corporate client at heart."
“I have been very happy with the service that Certes provided me with, especially that they kept me updated throughout the process. I feel that their constant communication kept me interested in the role despite that fact that the process dragged on so long."
