The quality of candidates that you have been able to introduce to us has been outstanding and we have not only grown in number but also in quality as a result! I look forward to working with you into the future and thank you for your continued help!"
"Mattinson Partnership took on the mantle of resourcing specialist positions for us and despite market turbulence we have successfully appointed from them. Freddie provided multiple high-level Designer and Architect candidates for interview; he worked hard to source our niche requirements and by taking the time to meet us he understood our company culture. As a consultant, he advised how to best approach filling our positions and was constantly engaged throughout the process. We’ve been very impressed with the service provided for us and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship. We’d have no hesitation in recommending their services."
"Mattinson Partnership have been incredibly attentive to our brief and presented us with exceptionally good candidates who have proved to become invaluable members of the urban design team at Farrells. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them highly and will continue using Mattinson to recruit both architects and urban designers moving forward."
"We have been working with Ruth Prescott and her team at Mattinson for a few years now. I have always found Ruth’s approach to be personable and professional, taking time to thoroughly research roles and never suggesting candidates that were not appropriate to the role required. Ruth’s background in environmental consultancy gives her an invaluable insight into the world of Acoustics, which many Recruiters often cannot grasp. This gives me the confidence that candidates presented are worthy of our attention. I would thoroughly recommend Ruth and her team as reliable advocates in the search for candidates at all levels, and look forward to continuing our relationship over the coming years."
"I have worked with Mattinson Partnership for more than 4 years and I currently work for the Talent Acquisition Team for Arcadis. Mattinson Partnership have assisted me with hiring professionals within the Infrastructure, Utilities and Environment Sectors enabling us to grow our Design and Consultancy capabilities UK wide. I have found them invaluable in placing professionals throughout many of areas of interest, they understand their clients’ needs and are able to react and flex to our reactive and proactive requirements. They are always professional in their approach and ensure that the candidates meet our recruiting requirements in terms of knowledge, experience, qualifications and availability. They hold very high ethical standards and are a go to supplier."
"After struggling to recruit ourselves for Junior Landscape Architects, Mattinson Partnership sent over a number of strong candidates whom we interviewed. They were very engaged throughout the process and consulted with us on how to best interview--each of the prospects. After several successful interviews we hired from them, and subsequently referred their services to another local design firm, who we know also successfully hired from them. We find their staff especially driven and personal and have been extremely happy with their service and their results. As mentioned, we have already recommended their services and will continue to do so."
"Mattinson Partnership has supported The Ecology Consultancy in its staff recruitment for nearly 10 years. Over that time we have developed a close working relationship with Ruth Prescott who from the very start made a point of learning about the company and its culture. As a result the candidates recommended are always those who would be a good fit with the company and many of the successful candidates go on to have long and successful careers with us. It is always a pleasure to deal with Ruth and her colleagues and we know we can rely upon them to find the best candidate for the job."
"As we near the year end I thought I would drop you a quick line to thank you for all of the hard work that you have put in over the last 12 months or so in securing two quality professionals for our expanding Development and Valuation teams in the South East. I have been greatly impressed by your diligence and perseverance in securing both Chris Francis and Iwan Jones and for that we are most grateful. As we enter a new economic climate it may be that there are fewer such appointments on the immediate horizon but no doubt our industry will see further growth in the fullness of time and I hope that we can work together closely going forward to facilitate that."

At ADAS, we have been impressed with the quality of candidates Mattinson Partnership recommend for interview, and it is clear that they have worked hard to identify the skills we look to bring into the business. We have been very impressed with the service provided by Ruth and the team, and would have no hesitation in recommending their services."

"We used the Mattinson Partnership Smarter Travel Team to assist in the delivery of our 2011/2012 School Travel Plan programme. Although only a short appointment (June 2012 – to 18th July 12) they managed to reach agreed targets for workshop attendance and final draft travel plan submissions.
One other notable point was the cost of their service which we also found to be very cost effective.
As a result I am happy to recommend MP Smarter Travel Team "

Dominic and the rest of his team guided me through the process from start to finish and beyond. He listened and acted on my needs. He was also a vital communication conduit with potential employers."
"The service I received from Dominic and Mattison Partnership was first class. I sometimes feel that some recruitment consultants forget that there is a real person on the other end of a CV. I certainly did not experience this with Mattinson Partnership. I am now settled into my new position at WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff. Thank you very much for your support."Les Redpath

"I really appreciate the work that Simon of the Mattinson Partnership did to help find me an appropriate geotechnical engineering position. I had not been looking for a new job for about 6 years, so I was not quite sure how to proceed. However, I felt that Simon provided me the essential coaching that got me the offer of a position and salary that I wanted. He helped me to sell my skills with the way that I presented my CV. He also helped me to think through the issues that we would be discussing in my interview, leaving the interviewer in no doubt that I was suitable for the position. I was very keen to start work as soon as possible and Simon helped to drive the process forward. As a result, colleagues at my new company said I was probably the quickest person to start after interviewing - just over 1 week!"Mike Suewing

“I found the company friendly, helpful and reliable. Unlike some companies that use a 'scatter gun' approach thereby wasting time for all those involved, introductions are only made where both the client and the customers needs are matched. I had one introduction and one job offer and am now enjoying the next phase of my career”.Dennis Pederick

“I came to Mattinson partnership in December 2004 as I felt my transport planning career was going nowhere in the job I was in. All it took was 1 phone call and 1 meeting with David and I got many opportunities which looked far more suitable for me. During our meeting David really took the time to listen to all my needs and what I wanted from a job and where I could see myself going. I felt confident that they were looking out for what I wanted and not driven by anything else. This meant that he was able to match my requirements exactly with the right employer and by January 2005 I had my new job. I am now much happier in a company that I enjoy and working to fulfil my career aspirations in transport planning. I would, and have, recommended Mattinson Partnership to anyone searching for a job within the industry. 10 out of 10.”Adam Beswick
“The team at Mattinson Partnership have proven to be the best agency I have used in my quest to re-align my career. They are always there for support (even after normal office hours) and give tip-top advice. The position I was put forward for was an exact match to my skill set and I was never miss-sold the position at any point, their open honesty is a credit to the field of recruitment.
I would like to thank both Peter and David for securing my new position and giving me a career path back with excellent prospects.”
