Some Of Our Successful Client Comments

Julie Phillipps

HR Manager

Eldon is an outstanding recruiter and coach.

I have had the pleasure of having Eldon on the team for 16 months and has had one of the most critical roles in our growth journey. Eldon has an incredible work ethic; he gets the job done no matter what. 
He has shaped our hiring processes and been the driving force behind our direct hiring model for both permanent and contract hires. 
He acts as a great sounding board to our hiring managers and me, we are always grateful for his market knowledge and insights that help us make informed decisions. Eldon is one of the best out there and I know he will go on and do amazing things now.

Mark Hill

C.O.O (Coeo) and

V.P (Hitachi Consulting)

I have worked with Eldon twice. Once at Hitachi and then again at Coeo - he is driven and works hard to go that extra mile to find great candidates. Not only is he good at his job he is also one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. He has helped me find amazing Technical and Strategic hires over the years.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Eldon!

Vaughan Powell


Eldon operated in strategic recruitment business partner role from IMGROUP.

Delivering tactical and strategic Information Technology hires that were critical to the business achieving its ambitious growth plans and targets.

Eldon approached me directly in 2011 with the proposition for hiring him full-time to build an internal recruitment function, which focused not just on efficient and cost-effective hiring of new staff, but also on staff retention. Hiring Eldon turned out to be one of the best business decisions I ever made and he was a pleasure to work with. Not only was he successful in directly recruiting many of our best people, he also contributed significantly to the wider people team effort, focusing on the pastoral aspects of employee morale and retention.
