  • Alexander Steele are one of the most committed and professional recruitment partners I have worked with. They are skilled and take time to understand exactly what we need with each hire. The service they provide at company and candidate level is excellent and we will continue to work closely with the Alexander Steele team as our business grows.

  • ​Dealing with Greg was a pleasure, he’s incredibly personable and passionate about finding the right people for the right roles. We had an introduction call where I told him about our business and the type of candidates we were looking for. In no time at all he was back with list of high quality suitable candidates. Through each stage of the interviews Greg supported in giving detailed feedback to the candidates, something which is hard to fit in a busy interview schedule but is incredibly valuable for the candidate. We were able to find a candidate who not only fitted the experience profile we were looking for but who is a great fit for us culturally.

  • In the past Glebe has completely avoided recruitment consultants! Liam of Alexander Steele was introduced by a ‘no nonsense’ Technical Manager. Each role we were looking for was explained and made clear to present those who had something suitable for our business. Liam sent us 4-5 candidates for the each of two roles and we have now taken on 2 senior managers with a third to come later. He understands, listens and is candid about both the business’s culture and his candidates’ personalities to narrow down before the first meeting whether they would fit to save everyone’s time. ​

    Dr. Philip Rayner, Managing Director, Glebe Farm Foods

  • We have worked with Alexander Steele over the past few months on our Engineering Recruitment and have found them to be quick to respond with a great calibre of candidates.  We are now giving them an opportunity to fill other vacancies within the business. Their consultants are open to constructive discussions and keen to get things right.​

  • "Trustworthy, professional Agency, would recommend.From the start, my recruiter Clarke understood me and my career goals, was very supportive and the communication was excellent throughout what can be a stressful journey."

    Fiona, Head of Technical

  • I found working with Giuseppe to be extremely refreshing. His approach to keeping the candidate in the loop with all aspects of the recruitment process was exemplary. Open and honest about the whole aspect of the role I was applying to. His background knowledge of the company I applied to was on point and he coached me through what would turn out to be a very good interview. Any concerns I had were quickly appeased by Giuseppe’s great relationship with the client. Regular catch up calls, even after appointment to gauge how I was getting on was a welcome approach.

    Matthew, Senior Planner

  • ​Liam was instrumental in finding me my latest position. He completely understood my background and the type of position that I was looking for and found me a role within a company that exactly fits with my skill set and more. He is very thorough in his approach, understands the market completely and has an established and wide network. I would not hesitate to use him again in the future and highly recommend him to others.

    Caroline, NPD Consultant

  • ‘I just wanted to thank you again for this opportunity of employment, I am relieved to have found a job and all is going well. Alexander Steele made the whole process simple and relieved all the worries and stress that come with finding a new role.’
