Our Service Speaks For Itself
I have had a number of BIM Technicians and Coordinators from Mase and each and every one of them are still with us today. Mase really know their stuff and know my business really well having taken the time to visit the office multiple times. This really shows in the quality of the candidates they supply. Great work as ever!
Mase are brilliant to deal with. They have recruited a number of individuals for our Structural Design business and they are always my first port of call when I do recruit. They are knowledgeable and consult, without being pushy.
Mase have worked on a couple of assignments for me, and I’ve been really happy with the effort that has been put into their process. In particular, there’s a lot of candidate pre-screening that gets done, which means I only spend time talking to serious candidates. As a result, we’ve filled those roles with great people. When I talk to candidates, it’s clear that the team takes a lot of time and care about treating them well, which is important when I’m choosing a recruitment partner. So whether employer or candidate, I’d recommend Mase Consulting.
Chief Marketing Officer
Mase Consulting is one of the most trustworthy and professional recruitment businesses I’ve had the pleasure of working with. One of the major challenges I face is having a recruiter understand my industry and the skills associated with it, but Mase definitely excel at this. They have helped me fill various difficult and challenging roles over the last 10 years, and have saved me invaluable time wading through CVs. In the vast majority of cases we have succeeded in securing candidates from them. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Against all odds, Mase Consulting came up with a candidate who fitted our requirements perfectly. They spent time asking the right questions in the early stages, which meant they came back with a number of relevant options for review. We look forward to working with the team again.
I have used Mase Consulting on more than one occasion to help me place key staff. They are extremely professional and very good at finding excellent candidates. I can highly recommend them.
Global Sales & Marketing Director
Mase Consulting have always been focused and enthusiastic on the Key Account Management vacancies we have worked together on. They are great at pushing projects to completion within tight deadlines.
Head of National Accounts
The energy and determination Mase demonstrate in fulfilling assignments is fantastic. I have yet to meet another recruitment business that shares that level of passion and enthusiasm. They leave no stone unturned, which makes the hiring process straightforward and effective.
Having spent 8 unsuccessful months searching for a Service Engineer to service our specialist scientific equipment, it was a relief to finally find a recruitment company who took a proactive approach to sourcing. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that the skills we required didn’t exist, however we were pleasantly surprised when Mase delivered on their promise and presented 3 high-profile candidates. Following a successful round of interviews, an offer was accepted and the successful candidate starts with us next week.
Thanks again for your help on this assignment. You are certainly on a roll!
Having worked with Mase Consulting for a number of years, I believe tenacity is one of their key strengths. They have now successfully placed four difficult-to-find individuals within my team, all of whom are still with the business today.
National Sales Manager
Mase Consulting’s thorough understanding of the industry and 1st class sales ability means they are always able to identify candidates who otherwise would not be on the market. Mase Consulting holds a firm place as our first choice recruitment partner as we can always count on them find those special gems.
We were very impressed with Mase Consulting. Having worked with other recruiters for several months and going through the frustration of continually explaining the skills and team fit we required, we finally hit gold with Mase. They were able to listen to our needs and deliver a number of relevant candidates within two weeks. We could have happily hired any of the candidates shortlisted by their team.
Global VP Sales & Marketing
Thanks for all your help! Mase have proven invaluable to us as a business and have always delivered the right fit for our team. They have proven to be very good at listening and understanding the brief accurately.
We’re often looking for niche skills and difficult-to-find individuals, but have struggled to find a recruiter that can consistently deliver. From our first meeting with Mase, we found their enthusiasm for delivery and results-driven approach refreshing. We’ve now worked together on three separate assignments, all successful.
We have worked with Mase Consulting for over 7 years and they have continually gone above and beyond to deliver the mix of technical and commercial skills we have needed to grow our UK operation. They have demonstrated a fantastic understanding of our market and I would highly recommend them to others.
Mase is focused on what we require, ensuring the candidates they put forward for selection are an excellent fit both technically and culturally. I’ve found the team to be very dedicated and engaged in the various recruitment drives we’ve worked on and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others who need results.
European HR Manager
I have used Mase for the last 6 years across numerous functions in the business, and the quality of candidates they have put forward have been first class. The candidates had clearly been vetted and interviewed prior to our meeting, which made the selection process easier. I would highly recommend Mase Consulting to other companies.
We have worked with Mase for over 5 years, and I believe consistency is one of their biggest strengths. Together, we’ve been able to build a business relationship and understanding of how we operate and what our business requirements are. We provide clear guidelines of our requirements from Sales, Manufacturing and Logistics, and Mase provide the candidates. We’re a very busy company, but Mase respect this, so you don’t get the constant hassle. Don’t ask me where they find the candidates from, but they do. They do what it is says on the tin.
Business Unit Director
I’ve been working with Mase Consulting for the past 7 years and have always found them very professional. They helped us with both senior and junior vacancies where we struggled to find the right candidate, listening to our needs and attracting the right individuals. A very positive experience overall.
Head of HR
Thanks for all your help Mase, yet another brilliant candidate for the business.
