Candidate Testimonals  

I would like to thank you for your help, guidance and professionalism. I have already recommended your services to friends and colleagues. After using a number of different recruitment agencies and being constantly disappointed, I finally found a team that really listened to what I had to say, materialising my aspirations and ambitions.
George, ABN Amro

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Barbara Houghton Associates on two separate occasions in my career and have, in both instances, been delighted with the help, support and guidance they have given me. The team were extremely professional and courteous and showed a genuine interest in finding the right appointment for me, based on my specific requirements and experience and their outstanding knowledge of the market place. I would not hesitate to utilise their services again in the future....

The thought of finding a new job used to be daunting and arduous until I joined Barbara Houghton Associates. In my career I've had four permanent positions and three of those have been provided by Barbara Houghton Associates. You've made the issue of finding new work more of a joint effort and that partnership makes it even easier when it comes to securing that next job. Thanks to you I'm now more confident in the job market knowing that I will eventually get the right job to match my skills and experience and that's peace of mind for me.

Well done.
Sam, Royal Bank of Canada

After a few easy going meetings with my consultant I was quickly placed within a position that suited both my skills and needs. Since being placed I have been kept up to date on my progress and feed back from my current employer along with any future placements. I have found Barbara Houghton Associates both professional and helpful during the process of finding a job which is never an easy task. I have happily recommended Barbara Houghton Associates to people I know and would not hesitate to carry on doing so in the future.

Barbara Houghton Associates has been great to work with. They are an excellent agency and are quick to answer any questions/concerns/problems that have come up. They are very professional, very nice and are an excellent team to deal with. I hope to continue to be associated with Barbara Houghton Associates for the rest of my time here in London.

Changing jobs can be a stressful time but with the help of Barbara Houghton Associates it was made so much easier and stress free. Feedback was given every step of the way and I was made to feel valued rather than just another candidate representing commission for the company. Thank you so much for all your help.
Daniel, Bank of New York

Trying to get back into a professional City company after a career break can be a pretty scary prospect. However thanks to the professionalism and friendliness shown by the team at Barbara Houghton Associates this transition was made pain free and almost enjoyable. After one meeting with my consultant, she ascertained the type of role I was ideally looking for and placed me in the perfect position. My consultant has continued to offer help and support within this temporary position and I would therefore without hesitation recommend Barbara Houghton to any-one looking to move jobs or return to work. This kind of professional and friendly attitude make a very pleasant change from other agencies.
Elizabeth, Citigroup

I received excellent personal attention and prompt feedback throughout the entire application and recruitment process. The process was by no means easy but Barbara Houghton Associates stood by my side and even made their office infrastructure available to me while I was in transition between jobs. Barbara Houghton Associates went over and beyond your usual City recruitment consultant's call of duty.
Stephen, Deutsche Bank

It's very difficult to find both an agency and a consultant that you can both rely on and trust as well as one that has your best interests at heart. Many thanks for not only the professional approach and support you have given me over the years but also the personal interest you have taken with me.
Paul, State Street

Breaking into investment banking as a fresh graduate is a difficult task. After I signed up with Barbara Houghton Associates however, I had an interview within a week. For this they really went the extra mile in providing me with comforting support and valuable information. I now enjoy a permanent position in a challenging work environment at one of the worlds leading banks.
Kare, State Street

After being made redundant from my previous employer after 13 years, the thought of finding a new job was very daunting. After contacting Barbara Houghton Associates my consultant worked extremely hard in finding the right role for me. He honed my interview technique that was rather rusty, and gave me an insight to how my future employers worked that was invaluable at the actual interview. He gave me the confidence to succeed and now I have a brand new career at a leading International Bank.
Warren, Anglo Irish Bank

Having been in the same job for nearly 19 years I was absolutely petrified about having to start looking for employment again. After the first meeting I was put completely at my ease. Before my first interview I was given some useful tips and advice which were greatly appreciated and which were obviously very useful as I was invited back for another interview and subsequently offered the job. I would like to express my thanks for all the encouragement given. If I was looking for employment in the future I would not hesitate in contacting Barbara Houghton Associates.
