“The team at ROC truly took the time to understand the dimensions and requirements of a senior PA role I was seeking to fill and, rather than filling my inbox with CVs, sent through a select list of candidates that could truly perform at the necessary level. Having chosen an excellent candidate, they then worked quickly and efficiently to close an agreement on package with the candidate and ensure a smooth landing into the organisation”.

A. Morris, General Counsel, Utilities

"We have found ROC to be totally professional and trustworthy in everything they do. If ROC say they will deliver it, they do. They keep the client informed throughout the process. They are able to deal with difficult/diverse and changing situations. Responding as and when needed to clients changing their needs as the market place alters. We would have no hesitation in using ROC again for a future campaign."

R. Crouch, HR Business Partner, Utilities

"Once again let me say how pleased we are with how you and your Company have delivered. From the outset Debbie and her team have been most professional about what and how ROC could successfully deliver for us. ROC Recruitment has helped us successfully complete Phase 1 with our team of 420 Financial Service Specialists selected, trained with 344 already deployed. Your part in delivering this goal has been outstanding. The work and passion you have shown has been admirable and the way you have engaged with Bank of Ireland Post Office Management and HR Shared Services Team has been a credit to ROC. Thank you once again for your outstanding contribution and I look forward to working closely with you all as we build our Business for the future."
