“Precise, Efficient and Effective – what more could you ask for from a recruitment consultant. Toner Graham consistently delivers outstanding candidates perfectly matching our requirements. The attention to detail [consultant] has shown is fabulous and I would recommend Toner Graham to anyone seeking to recruit fantastic professionals without any wasted time or effort.”
Kirk Walsh, Financial Controller
Catalent Pharma Solutions
"I have found [consultant] at Toner Graham to be efficient and professional in his approach. [consultant] always takes time to understand the role that we are recruiting for and the type of candidate that we are after. Both I and the recruitment team have been impressed by the candidates that [consultant] has submitted.
I find [consultant’s] communication style has a very good balance, I have dealt with a number of agencies over the years and have either been put off by overtly pushy consultants or not been able to get hold of them to discuss my requirements. The service offered does not just stop when the candidate has been placed, [consultant] will follow up to see how the candidate is getting on and will always call on a regular basis to have a general chat.
Based upon my experience of recruiting via Toner Graham I would not hesitate to recommend the services offered by the agency.”
Nick Ajimal, MI Manager

"I have worked with Toner Graham over a number of years. A key factor in working with Toner Graham is that they take time to understand their clients and their businesses. As a result, potential candidates are not only qualified and skilled to do the particular role, but also identified as a good fit with the organisation."
Martyn Cheatle, Chief Executive
“Claire's have worked with Toner Graham for a while now and they have done an amazing job. Recruiting for Claire's is a big challenge, we require extremely high calibre candidates all with fluency in a European language - and on top of this we're also extremely picky about who we recruit! Where some agencies would send us every person they can find with a language, Toner Graham spend time finding us exactly the right candidate - sending us only those that are truly "Claire's". They understand our requirements 100% and act as additional members of our resourcing team rather than external suppliers. The consultants are a pleasure to work with - they really do make our job a lot easier. I'd recommend them to anyone as a truly outstanding, open and honest agency.”
Liz Cole, HR Business Partner
“[consultant] from Toner Graham had worked hard to build a relationship and understand our business needs and ethos. This proved invaluable when the most senior member of my team resigned as Toner Graham not only had the right candidates on their books but [consultant] immediately produced a short list of candidates meeting all our needs and allowing me to recruit promptly and achieve a handover.”
Clive Bassett, Finance Director
“[consultant] always takes time to understand my requirements as a Manager and will know exactly what I am looking for in potential employees and as a result of his efforts to understand his customer he provides the right candidates for interviews and does not waste my time!”
Vanessa Simms, UK Finance Director
“[consultant] has delivered a consistently good service to my team over the last two years, and continues to work closely with us. He has strong leadership and strong management attributes, and ensures clear alignment between stakeholders. During challenging assignments, [consultant] builds up sufficient momentum to overcome challenges and obstacles that arise in the process, and ensure a clear sense of urgency throughout. When he achieves key milestones, [consultant] takes time to consolidate gains, and ensures that the momentum built up from his (and his team's) hard work is never lost. His sincerity and integrity has resulted in a supplier relationship being transformed into a partnership, and it is clear that he spends a lot of time worrying about providing an excellent service to customers. [consultant] has a good grasp of inter-dependence between people and tasks in a fast moving environment. His effectiveness is further enhanced by his keen appreciation of how he can better position his organisation relative to competitors in the business environment.”

I got exactly what I was looking for first time around"
“I would just like to say thanks for your help in securing my job with RWE Supply and Trading. Everything is sent off so all being well I should start Tuesday. As it turned out I passed the first job interview I had with a company so my experience of other agencies is limited, but my experience with Toner Graham has been by far the best. Thanks again for your help.”
