'I would just like to say thank you for the excellent service we have received from yourself in our recent recruitment for our Finance Department.  Having used Lloyd Barnes previously it gave me great confidence in your service and has yet again saved me a lot of time and worry knowing that our finance recruitment is in great hands.  As in the past you were able to respond at very short notice and were able to provide strong candidates all of which easily met our criteria.  We were left with a great choice which reflected your understanding of our business.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Lloyd Barnes to other businesses looking to recruit accountancy personnel'.  Finance Manager, Training Provider, Exeter, Devon

'I would estimate that over the years I have recruited a dozen or more candidates with Lloyd Barnes, on both a permanent and temporary basis.  To date, these have been an exceptional calibre with no exception. I have found the agency to be extremely helpful whilst avoiding “intrusion”.  The agency provides a very complete service, short-listing against the person specifications and reducing significantly our administrative burdens in this respect.   The agency is proactive and responsive, and very willing to give advice on gradings etc., ahead of formal appointment.  They offer expert knowledge in terms of “accounting” and evaluate skills against demands accurately'.  Head of Finance, Leisure Operator, nr Exeter, Devon

'Our consultant insisted he met with us and had a full understanding of our business before compiling a short list of very good candidates.  We went on to fill the finance post with an extremely competent and professional accountant'.  'I would definitely highly recommend Lloyd Barnes as a cost effective solution to recruiting excellent calibre finance or accountancy candidates.  MD, Large Manufacturers, South Devon

'Mark spent time with us to fully understand the type of candidates we were looking to attract and then saved me significant time by undertaking the initial sifting process and shortlisting only those people who had a close match to the person specification.  It was also convenient to be able to utilise the Lloyd Barnes offices to hold informal meetings with the potential recruits.  Unlike some agencies I have used in the past, Lloyd Barnes offer a really personal service and work extremely hard to find you the right candidate.  We are delighted with the Financial Controller position that we recruited.'   South West Charity, Taunton, Somerset
