Corporate Tax Manager, Accountancy Practice

“Whilst looking for a new role, Ashley was proactive and supportive throughout. He understood my requirements and his hard work and commitment facilitated my next move. I can’t thank Ashley enough. He is a credit to his profession and a pleasure to do business with.”

Finance Manager, Engineering

“Richard has been a great help in finding me a position where so many had been unable to, as I wished to move from one profession to another. I was impressed with Richard’s ability to listen and hear what I was looking for. I was not with Richard for very long before he had placed me with a firm with good career prospects, and he was with me every step of the way, even assisting with queries I had after I had received the offer.”

Tax Executive, Accountancy Practice

“I am impressed with Ashley’s work as a Director at Addington Ball. His approach is to understand quickly the personality and skills of a candidate to identify which vacancies will suit that person most. He is available at any given time and is happy to offer independent advice despite it not having any direct benefit to him. Very good, well rounded, personal service from a recruiter who genuinely cares about your application. Ashley will be the first person I get in touch with the next time I am looking for a new challenge and my recommendation to anyone looking for terrific support, information & continued contact during the recruitment process & after.”

Financial Controller, Manufacturing

“Richard and his team were very approachable and were great at assisting me in finding my next career move. I would recommend Addington Ball to any friends or colleagues. Their approach to recruitment was very professional and kept me in the loop at all times. They always put my needs first”

Senior Accountant, Accountancy Practice

“Ashley was very supportive while I was searching for a new job. He was in constant contact, always making sure I was fully informed on how roles I had gone for were progressing. He listened to what I wanted in a role, rather than telling me what he felt I wanted. Once he had successfully found me a role which happened very quickly, he still kept in contact to make sure that I was happy and all was going well. A great person and agency to work with.”

Management Accountant, Manufacturing innovator

“Richard is one of the most proactive recruitment consultants I have come across in many years. He found my CV and immediately contacted me with regards to a role which had come about in a firm which I would be very interested in working for. He briefed me on the role in depth and sealed me an interview with the client within the space of a day or two. Richard is committed and does over exceed and this is a pretty non existent attitude with recruitment consultants these days. Can't recommend Richard enough! Thanks so much”

Billings Executive, Accountancy Practice

“Ashley is a first class recruitment consultant. He takes on board exactly what your requirements are and does his best to ensure that they are met. A pleasure to deal with and comes highly recommended!”

Assistant Financial Controller, Automotive manufacturer

“Richard is certainly a leader in his field and an individual that other recruiters/headhunters should aspire to. He is extremely personable, focused, tenacious yet not pushy and a true professional in his field. It was a pleasure dealing with Richard, no obstacle is too much trouble and his negotiation skills are exemplarary. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard as a top class, senior executive recruiter.”

Head of Contracts, Waste management plc

“Richard at Addington Ball is a very reliable person. He delivered, gave good advice and progressed my career in the right direction. Thanks Richard!”
