Giles and the team recently helped me find the perfect role in central Brighton. Whilst working with him I was highly impressed with his knowledge of the industry, diligence and professionalism. A cut above many other recruiters I’ve worked with; every step of the way he showed an impeccable understanding of my skills and requirements and was able to leverage his contacts to find the perfect match in no time at all.

Katie is a great recruiter to work with. She is very efficient at replying and dealing to any form of communication I sent and the wider Skillsearch team are also always very supportive. I look forward to working with you again.

Luke Zammit, Unity Developer | Future Games of London

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate

Skillsearch has been a great help in finding and securing my position at GTI. They were brilliant for advice and that meant the whole application and interview process went very smoothly for me, and ultimately ended with me getting the job.

Toby New, Developer | GTI

The Skillsearch team did a fantastic job and were a real pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the employers they work with, their recruiting processes and key staff was a real boon in both finding the right position and the subsequent application. Having worked with Skillsearch both as an employer and as a candidate I would thoroughly recommend them as being among the best in the industry.

Dan Borthwick, Mobile Technical lead | King

I have worked with Skillsearch for the duration of my project on a number of recruitment opportunities. Skillsearch offer a professional and collaborative service providing a quick turn around with quality resource. When defining a resource requirement, Skillsearch worked with me to ensure they understood the full requirements and thus eliminated the submission of inappropriate type candidates. I would gladly use Skillsearch for future resource requirements, knowing that their professional, collaborative and honest approach ensures that a good working relationship is created.

Stuart Entwistle, Global Payroll Project Manager

Through my work at Unity Technologies, and as organiser of the London Unity Usergroup, I have a very close connection with Unity developers throughout the UK. A common theme amongst Unity developers is a call for Unity jobs. On the flip side to this, I visit many studios that are looking for Unity developers to fill vital positions for the development of exciting new projects. It was clear that communication between individual developers and studios needed improving. It's great that Skillsearch have taken the initiative and are focussing on improving the communication between Unity developers and studios.

Russ Morris, Product Evangelist | Unity Technologies

Giles and the Sillsearch team exceptional recruiters, on multiple occasions he has delivered more potential hires (high quality relevant candidates) to interview than any other tech agency I have worked with. I especially appreciate his capacity to understand our need, and adjust as the process moves forward, with minimal need for how intervention.

Gil Teixeira, Head of Production | Arkavis Siam Co. | Bangkok, Thailand

Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again.

Senior Cognos Consultant

I met Giles and Guy at Develop and in the months since the event, Skillsearch has visited the campus on two occasions and worked with our students collectively and individually on improving their CVs and what goes into making a good portfolio. Our students respond well to their positive energy and encouragement, and their passion for games development. Giles and Guy are mad for Unity and because of them, I have encouraged all our games students to become proficient on the engine, and pushed the business case for the university purchasing 20UnityPro licenses. And, best of all, Giles and Guy do what it says on the tin – find our students jobs in games.
