Applicant testimonials

From the initial contact and throughout the process of my changing jobs Jared, Becca and everyone at FTS have behaved to the highest professional standards, giving me the right support at the right time and never creating any pressure for me to move.  Their advice has always been constructive and given in support of my own considerations.

To be perfectly honest, whilst not actively seeking a new position I wasn't exactly happy where I was and the initial contact from FTS was extremely helpful in establishing the reasons for my discontent and this encouraged me to think independently about my situation.

They took the time to listen and through honest and open conversation they helped me consider the pros and cons of seeking a new role or remaining where I was.  After my own independent thinking and decision making I asked FTS to assist in finding suitable new opportunities, which has ultimately resulted in my securing an exciting new role where I feel my best skills and attributes will be more fully utilised and thus hopefully provide me a more rewarding role and work experience.

The overall process hasn't been quick and has involved FTS in some challenges to establish the best fit and terms for both parties all of which Jared and Becca have undertaken with great patience and professionalism.

FTS will certainly remain a key recruitment contact for any future personal or professional requirements.

D Dowling – Area Bid Manager, Surrey

After making the decision to further my career and change companies dealing with FTS was a pleasure.  Becca was very professional and willing to take the time to discuss both my requirements and current position before contacting me again with an exciting opportunity.  After briefing me fully she was quick to arrange an interview that suited my current work commitments and both she and Jared kept in contact throughout the interview process with feedback.

They were always available to answer any questions I had and, having now commenced the new stage of my career, the role is developing exactly how it was presented to me so I fully recommend using FTS.

M Day – Site Manager, Hampshire

Prior to my dealings with FTS I had lost faith in recruitment consultants but thanks to my experience with Becca, I have had it restored.  She took the time to understand what I was looking for, showed me a number of very good opportunities and ultimately placed me into a perfect role..

R Baron – Site Manager, Hampshire

Just to say that looking for new employment is a stressful time but you and Becca have relieved a good deal of the uncertainties by keeping me informed of what was happening at every stage of the process including and even gave me tips on the interview with the prospective employer.  I cannot thank you enough for your help and will have no hesitation in recommending you to others in a similar situation.

A Brown – Contracts Manager, Hampshire

Having had many dealing with the staff from FTS over the years I have always found the team to be responsive and approachable.  They have always connected me with prospective employers who suited my aspirations whether I have been looking to relocate, for a timely step up the promotion ladder or a move to a different type of Construction Company.

The team at FTS have always looked after my interests by listening to, and acting on, my needs.  Rather than just putting names in front of companies they take the time to ensure that the right candidate is placed with the right employer and as an individual you can’t ask for more than that.

A Broad – Project Manager, Dorset

I found the FTS approach totally refreshing in regards to helping me find employment. Dealing with Becca was genuinely a pleasure and she took the time to understand exactly what I required before swiftly finding me a job role that is perfectly suited.  I found them to be a much more rewarding company to deal with than a number of other recruitment agencies that bombarded me with meaningless emails for job roles that were nothing like I was looking for.  FTS are a great, great company to deal with!

A Hall – Assistant Site Manager, Dorset

I have dealt with FTS since 2003 and have always found them to be extremely professional, genuine and discreet in their approach – which is what you need when you are looking for a new position or recruiting members of staff.  They always give sound and honest advice, make no empty promises, listen to your requirements and then offer various ideas and solutions. I highly recommend them.

D Di-Felice – Commercial Manager, Dorset

When I recently approached FTS regarding a job they were advertising with a large construction company they first spoke with me at length regarding my experience before deciding that I would be an ideal candidate to put forward. 

Everything was organised by FTS who arranged a time suitable for me to attend then provided full details and wishes of good luck on the day with a further telephone conversation after the interview to see how it went.  I was surprised by the caring attitude of the staff who kept me informed of what was happening at every stage. 

I found them totally professional and they even negotiated a starting salary way above what I had anticipated.  If I should ever be looking to change my position I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Jared and his team.

P Hampton – Senior Site Manager, Dorset

Of the many recruitment agencies that contacted me, FTS offered a personable, friendly and efficient service which stood out from the rest.  They were a very helpful intermediary in offering interview technique advice and providing the 'need to know' information that helped me secure my new opportunity. 

Deciding to leave one employer and take the leap of faith to another is a stressful situation so having a recruitment consultant with whom I never had any problems getting hold of, and who was very reassuring throughout, made the process much easier.

R Kershaw – Senior Quantity Surveyor, Surrey

Jared and his team at FTS provided me with an extremely friendly, professional and caring approach to my placement.  Their detailed approach, in depth knowledge of their clients and the construction market made the recruitment process a stress free and pleasurable experience.  Without doubt I would recommend using FTS. 

S Knight – Commercial Manager, Surrey

Having recently been introduced to my new employer I would like to comment on my experience of working with FTS who carried out the introduction. 

From the initial contact with them I was impressed by their professional yet personal approach.  Requests for relevant information were clear, adequate timescales were agreed and useful information was provided during the arrangement of meetings with prospective employers.  Feedback was quickly attained and passed back to me, and when a position was offered I again received clear and useful information from my allotted Consultant whose advice was very helpful.

I would definitely recommend FTS to any fellow professionals within the Construction Industry.

R George – Senior Project Manager, Hampshire

I have used FTS twice during my career and have been very happy with their introductions to companies which have met my needs and career aspirations on both occasions.  They have a very professional and sympathetic approach in that they listen to your requirements and ensure that the right company is approached to suit the candidate.   I would not hesitate to recommend FTS to anyone thinking of moving companies.

M Jefferies – Senior Quantity Surveyor, Surrey

I found FTS Recruitment to be a professional yet friendly agency that took the time to listen to my requirements and then used their knowledge of the market to find the most compatible company to suit my career ambitions.  I would recommend the team at FTS to colleagues and acquaintances and wouldn't hesitate to use them again should I need their recruitment assistance in the future. 

G Burrows – Senior Project Manager, Surrey

One of the biggest differences between FTS and their competitors is that FTS always kept me fully informed and updated which relieved me of the need to chase for information as with many of the other agencies with whom I even found that messages I had left went unanswered.  Whilst I appreciate that, from an agency’s perspective there is a fine balance between ‘pursuing’ and ‘harassing’ their clients, being updated regularly gives me the confidence to know that a potential opportunity for me is less likely to slip through the net.

M Beaumont – Managing Surveyor, West Sussex

When I first contacted FTS Recruitment with regard to finding me employment, they said they could help but l didn't expect such a quick and efficient service.  Not only did they find me a perfect opportunity quickly but also kept me updated and in the loop at all times; and I never felt alone through this hard time. 

B Brewer – Health & Safety Manager, Hampshire

I have a vast amount of experience in the construction sector and have worked with many recruitment agencies over the years as both a hiring manager and when looking for a new opportunity.  I believe FTS to be one of, if not the most professional and efficient recruitment consultants around as they offer a personal touch which I believe is extremely important to both an employer looking to recruit and an individual who is seeking a new role.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending FTS to anyone within the construction industry and I shall be utilising their services in the future.
