We all know what a lot of recruiters can be like…. thankfully Gavin and Synergy Personnel buck the trend of the majority and deliver quality over quantity, whilst supporting their candidate every step of the way. Gavin really knows his Clients and therefore can ensure the candidate is a good fit for not just the role, but the company as well. Post-interview the feedback, negotiation process and referencing were all handled swiftly and effectively. I’m happy to have secured a role with Gavin and would definitely work with him again for my own resourcing needs in the MEP Services industry.

Gavin treats the job seeker as a person, other agencies treat you as a potential commission and nothing more. They are not interested in you or have time for you which leave a bad taste in the job seekers mouth, and they will never use you again or recommend your company. Gavin was friendly and polite with humour thrown in.

I had the pleasure in dealing with Gavin and found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful both during the recruitment process and post-placement. During post-placement I leant on Gavin for his professional advice on a very serious and complicated matter. Not only was his advice extremely useful but I believe it was key in rescuing the problem I faced. Gavin is more than just a recruiter.

Two things come to mind about Gavin that are hard to miss; he never stops working and he shows great honesty, integrity, and transparency in his behaviour. Combined with his high experience level these talents make him great at finding the right work environment if you are looking for a fresh start. As soon as he understands what makes you tick, he will get you job interviews with potential employers in an unbelievably brief period. During the whole interviewing and hiring process Gavin will be there for whatever moral or practical support you may need. If I was to consider a new role, Gavin would be the first person to call.

Great service provided by Gavin during my transition between companies, remaining in contact throughout the process and ensuring that all my questions were addressed and answered. Gavin was always prepared to go the extra mile and was contactable throughout and not just a 9-5pm recruiter.

Gavin is one of the best recruitment specialist I have ever spoken to. Very easy going person with positive attitude. He helped me to find exactly what I was looking for with a lot of patience. His advice given to me where always 100% accurate . Thanks for achieving my goal. You really understand people’s personalities.

Gavin is a very friendly and helpful person. He kept me updated on a regular basis with regards to job offers and how they were progressing. I would highly recommend Gavin if you’re seeking a job.

We use Gavin consistently in our recruitment due to his knowledge of our industry and his understanding of our requirements. Gavin provides a great service starting with understanding our requirements and ending with profession and organised correspondence. We also enjoy Gavin’s sound ethics which is fundamental to our relationship

Gavin Dilkes at Synergy Personnel Services recently assisted in placing me at a new company. Very focused, great knowledge base of the local industry, lots of contacts, professional throughout and most importantly continuous contact and communication throughout the process. Highly recommended!

After a prolonged search for the right team-member, I sought out Gavin to help me find the right man for the job. He did not disappoint. I am already using him again to fill another two vacancies and would happily recommend him.
