I would just like to extend my thanks to Amanda Tonks and Russell Thelwell at C2 recruitment for the excellent service they have provided with recent vacancies.

The brief was fully understood, which resulted in some really strong candidates being successfully appointed and due to start our Manager Designate Programme.

Both Amanda and Russell respond promptly and professionally to meet our vacancy needs and I would not hesitate in recommending them and C2 recruitment.

Senior HR Advisor, Global Leisure & Hospitality Operator

Russell was my recruitment contact, and after working with many other providers, I found Russell to provide exceptional and professional service. He always acted with integrity, kept me up to date and went above and beyond to ensure I was kept up to date.

I was so impressed with his service that I asked him if I could recommend him rather than the other way around. I will now always go to Russell for all my recruitment requirements, as an employee or employer and would fully recommend his services.

General Manager, National Hospitality & Leisure Retailer

I am currently in a general managers position much thanks to Russell, I had been doing my own thing for a while and decided that I missed the many advantages that working for a corporate company can deliver.

this was my first time in nearly 18 years that I was going through the recruitment process as 'the' candidate, Russell arranged everything for me and did not stop short in ensuring that I had every little detail to prepare myself for the different stages of the interview, his professionalism and care put any nerves that I may of had firmly back in their place.

Just before each stage of the process I had an energising good luck text and after each stage he touched base with me to see how I got on and how I felt it went; once I had been accepted for the position he not only phoned to say congratulations but he sent a card from the agency and even sent a good luck message on my first day.

The whole process could not of gone better and smoother, this was mainly down to Russell's involvement and commitment to ensure that I got into the role I had so desired to achieve. I know where i will go should I find myself in that position again, subsequently if I need a position filling then I shall head straight to Russell.

General Manager, National Hospitality & Leisure Retailer

I work closely with Russell from C2 Recruitment to place candidates in to Senior Manager vacancies at The Original Bowling Company. Russell has worked exceptionally hard to understand our business and culture and is excellent at sourcing candidates who are the right match for our business.

Our senior roles require candidates who have certain skills and abilities to be able to deal with demands of a complex business and Russell's understanding of what we need is second to none. I would highly recommend working with him, he is helpful, friendly and a great business partner to work with

HR Business Partner - National Leisure Retail Organisation

When I was approached by Russell on behalf of C2 Recruitment it was clear from our initial meeting that he has very good knowledge and understanding of the Leisure and Hospitality Industry.

In the six months that I have been working with Russell he has successfully filled 7 of my management vacancies and I believe this is firmly down to him taking time out to come and understand our business and what we are looking for in our management population.

I have no hesitations in recommending the services of Russell and the rest of the C2 Recruitment team.

HR Business Partner – National Hospitality & Leisure Operator

C2 Recruitment has supported us with the recruitment of Sales Manager; Supervisor gaming floor roles; bar staff and recruiting for the whole hospitality department. The quality and calibre of the candidates presented to us has been excellent based on the brief which I provided to Amanda.

I have been extremely pleased with the support Amanda Tonks, Commercial Manager and her team have provided throughout the whole recruitment process.

C2 were very efficient, professional and commercially aware and have worked relentlessly to ensure a high number of quality candidates have been presented for interview with a broad range of skills relevant to our business.

I would highly recommend C2 to other recruiters as the service is pleasant and always a memorable experience.

Regional HR Manager – National Gaming Operator

C2 Recruitment have supported us with the recruitment of Head Chefs, Hospitality Managers and Sales Managers for various units across our company.

The quality and calibre of the candidates presented to me has been excellent based on the brief which I provided.

As a leading hospitality brand we operate outside of the normal office hours and at weekends and it has been of significant value to be able to communicate with C2 late in the evening and at weekends to discuss and arrange interviews and provide relevant feedback.

We will certainly be working with C2 Recruitment in the future wherever there is a requirement to source high quality candidates for our organisation and would recommend other recruiters to do the same.
