Below you will find employer and candidate testimonials citing their positive experience of working with Halcyon Recruitment and the excellent service they received.
From the start, you have provided me with good calibre applicants despite the tough market conditions. We all know many things have changed since that time, but one issue is that the recruitment market has become even tougher. Your selection process of good candidates and capability to work closely with your clients enables me to have, most probably, one of the premier league teams around me. A service I can highly recommend. Thank you!
Managing Director, Top Three Liner Shipping Company
Please may I express my sincere gratitude to Halcyon Recruitment. I have found you to be thoroughly professional, personally interested and committed to maintaining your high standard of service. It has been a pleasure to have used your excellent services, and, if the situation arose, I would do so again without any hesitation. I will also whole-heartedly recommend your services to any and all in the same situation as myself. Thank you again for the support, initiative and energy shown through-out this process.
Fleet Manager, Leading Ship Management Organisation
Halcyon knows the Tanker market, works with us to understand our specific staffing requirements and provides a solid short list of high calibre candidates with no fuss and no hassle. We shall happily continue to use Halcyon in the future and have no hesitation in our recommendation.
Managing Director, International Tanker Operator
From initial discussion through to securing a job with a London Broker, I found Halcyon to be both professional and personal in approach. They get to know each candidate individually; hence offering a far better service than other recruiters. I would use Halcyon again as a candidate and will most certainly use them as an employer in the future!
Broker, Competitive Shipbroking Firm
I would highly recommend Halycon Recruitment as they have provided a professional service and responded quickly to the requirements of our business. They have worked hard to understand our needs, provided candidates that have closely matched our specification and have proved their ability to execute and deliver.
HR Manager, World’s Largest Ship Management Company
I forwarded my resume to two major recruitment agencies in the maritime industry and to one relative newcomer, Halcyon Recruitment. The first one to contact me was Halcyon Recruitment and the follow up and service they provided ended up in interview and finally a job offer. Halcyon Recruitment managed the entire process very professionally, and at the same time on a very personal level. I accepted a job with a major shipping company which I doubt very much would have happened without Halcyon’s involvement. I can recommend Halcyon Recruitment on every level.
General Manager, Chemical Tanker Owner
We used Halcyon Recruitment to source a Chartering Broker when we needed to expand our team. The service we received was professional, personal and caring. The consultant in question maintained full ownership of the process from start to finish and clearly understood what we were looking for, employing a thorough candidate screening process. The result was a fast and efficient turnaround leading directly to our new recruit.
Managing Director, International Ship Brokers
I started my search for a London based job whilst living and working in Greece. A couple of days after registering with Halcyon, they contacted me regarding a very promising position that had just opened. The enthusiasm and way the consultant worked with me was very impressive and, within less than a month, I was working in my new position in London – a very quick and efficient process. My best experience ever.
