Testimonials

Professional, personal, and excellent service

“From the first contact made by Jordan introducing himself and 1492 to me, to detailing the role, through the complete process of interviews and follow up’s the communication was seamless, effective and professional. I was kept fully informed at every stage of the process and Jordan always made time to take my call.

Having dealt with several recruitment agencies as an employer and now as a candidate, the approach that 1492 takes towards recruitment and candidate selection is a refreshing change and very different from the majority of other recruitment companies.

Excellent service from all of the 1492 team, a real pleasure to do business with you. I will certainly use you when I am recruiting for my business.”

Hard working and always kept me updated

“A big thank you to Carl and the team from 1492 Ltd for all their hard work and keeping in contact with me throughout my recruitment process.

Carl has really gone the extra mile to make sure I was kept in the loop and updated with any progress. I would happily recommend 1492 Ltd to anyone looking for work.”

Candidate

By far the most professional and easiest to deal with

“Jordan and Carl got to know me as a person rather than just a set of skills and experience on a  CV.

The job spec supplied was detailed, but too junior for my experience however, based on his knowledge of the client and my background, Jordan convinced me and the employer we were right for what the business needed.

Within five minutes of attending the first interview I knew the company was a great fit.

I was able to have a very honest and open conversation with the team and the job offer negotiation was managed very deftly.

They kept up regular communication every step of the way and called when he said he would.

I dealt with around 10 agencies during my job search but 1492 was by far the most professional and easiest to deal with.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a move.”

Candidate

Excellent Service and Professional

“I have to say that over 20 years recruiting staff & being headhunted, I have never worked with an organisation as professional as 1492.

From day one, you & the rest of the team have been excellent & very professional.

You have personally restored my faith in the recruitment industry, you kept me informed at every stage of the process, even if it was to advise that there was no news.

This kind of service is new to me within the recruitment industry, historically, it has been me doing the chasing.

I can honestly say that it was a pleasure to have met you & worked with you on this assignment, many other recruitment companies could do with learning how it should be done from you & the 1492 team.

I would not think twice about using 1492 in the future or recommending them to other business colleagues.

Should you ever need it, I would be delighted to be a reference for you & your business on the excellent service you have provided & the professional manner in which you delivered it.”

Candidate

Professional and Courteous

“I would like to thank you very much for your time this morning and allowing me to present myself for the Managing Director position. It was a pleasure to have met with you.

Thanks once again also to Carl for his professional and courteous manner in which he represented 1492 and his assistance in providing additional information and in taking my calls.

The entire service from you both has been nothing but highly professional and it certainly stands out in the current market place”

Candidate

Highly Recommended!

“From the initial contact from 1492, I felt I was dealing with true professionals and experts in the engineering and manufacturing sector. As a candidate, I felt truly valued. From the initial meeting with Jordan I recognised he had a thorough understanding of the needs of his client and was able to answer all of my questions with ease. I was guided and supported at each stage of the interview process which led to a successful outcome for both parties. This support has continued as I work my notice period.

I would highly recommend 1492, both as a candidate and, in future, as a client. I feel I am at the start of a long-lasting partnership with 1492”

Seamless process

“1492 Ltd provided a seamless process to access my suitability for a role, introduce me to their client and eventually give me the good news that I will start work with their client. From start to finish Carl and Jordan were supportive, reliable and affable. Their approach takes the stress out of looking for a job and allows one to get on with doing one’s best at the interviews.”

Candidate

No pressure approach

“Thanks to all the team at 1492 – Absolutely fantastic service from start to finish!

Carl and Jordan really made an effort to understand my skill set and were able to put me forward for the right job opportunity straight away. Their no pressure approach was particularly refreshing and I always felt my best interests were taken into account. Once the decision had been made, they took care of all the necessary paperwork for both myself and the employer making the transition very smooth and stress-free for everyone. Thanks Carl for the location advice; the move from London to Manchester does not look that daunting anymore. Keep up the good work guys and thanks again for helping me find this amazing opportunity!”
