Testimonials from our clients

Presspart previously partnered Collingwood to recruit key Sales and Quality Management positions and so we were keen to use their knowledge of our business, culture and the medical devices industry again. We created a new role for a Marketing Manager which they successfully filled within agreed time-scales.

Collingwood were appointed to recruit a senior Operations Manager. I found the construction team, through Mark Goldsmith, to be very professional. Despite the challenges of recruitment in the run-up to Christmas, they were able to produce a shortlist of quality candidates, as was promised at the outset. Having made an appointment, I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

~ Acheson & Glover

Collingwood took a very challenging brief & focused very hard on finding the right matches, most importantly they were open & listened to feedback which helped to fine tune the assignment & the types of candidates recommended. We believe the candidates sourced were of the highest standard, fitted the brief, were motivated & happy to join the company.

A good search process from start to finish. Candidates shortlisted were all of a high standard and met our criteria.


The service was outstanding from the initial briefing meeting right through to the final conclusion. Particularly pleasing was the regular update information provided, so we could understand exactly where we were in the process at any point in time. This offered the opportunity to have input if we felt the direction and nature of the search needed any adjustment – which in our case it did not.

Mike is, in my view, the most competent and insightful of recruitment professionals that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. His detailed knowledge of the rail sector, coupled with his personable approach is a winning combination. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mike and his unique skill set in and ever changing and fast paced industry.
