"I have worked with Platinum Resources on a number of occasions when looking to recruit experienced finance and accounting staff. Platinum Resources has always been able to source candidates with the necessary qualifications and perhaps more importantly, the right industry experience. Their Knowledge, experience and expertise provided much needed support, particularly as I often worked without the benefit of a Human Resources department within the Company. Having worked extensively in the small exploration and production sector, I view Platinum Resources as the perfect recruiting partner. "
"Platinum Resources took the time to listen attentively to my career requirements, to understand my background and my expectations. I found the role briefing excellent and even inspirational. On a personal level I found Chris to be professional with strong attention to detail. He promoted the role and the company very well and ensured that I was briefed thoroughly prior to both interviews, which, included background on the people I was meeting and even the recommended dress code. Once I had secured the job I was delighted and grateful for the support given during the offer process and the negotiation of the package. Once in the role you followed up with me, on a number of occasions, to see how I was getting on and to provide me with some client feedback as well. On a professional level this was great and I personally found it very helpful, which, demonstrated a good inclusive 'after care' service. "
"Chris was instrumental in placing me in my current role at Ophir. He is very personable, professional and has maintained excellent communication throughout my contract (and subsequent conversion to perm) ensuring I was happy in my role. He is one of the few recruiters I have worked with that listened to what I was looking for in a role and company/industry, as opposed to simply selling a role. Highly recommended. "
"I have worked with Platinum Resources for over 5 years during which time they have helped us time and again to find the right choice of candidates. We trialled several recruitment companies during that time but always ended up selecting candidates from Platinum Resources. This was because of their knowledge of the industry and ability to identify what were looking for to ensure the perfect fit quickly and efficiently. No time is wasted. When they present a carefully shortlisted batch of CVs to you, you can be sure that your perfect candidate is amongst them."
"My husband and I used Platinum Resources for many years and always found them to be professional, thorough and considerate of our career needs. We were both placed in rewarding roles by Platinum Resources and enjoyed the contact we had with Chris Drake. I also used Platinum Resources as an employer when recruiting and was very happy with the service provided by them. "
"Platinum Resources is unique compared to the everyday recruiting firm, with their ability to tailor the perfect candidate to our business needs. They take the time to listen and understand our requirements and then research the candidate market to find the right match for the longer term, rather than just use existing candidates from their database. I have always found Platinum Resources to be extremely competitive pricing wise. I highly recommend Platinum Resources to businesses that have specific recruiting requirements and candidates that stay for the long term."
"We’d happily recommend Chris and the team at Platinum Resources. We’ve engaged Platinum on a range of interim and permanent roles and found them to be a great help. Some of the briefs were challenging, in terms of time-frames or the skills that we were looking for, and were pleased that Platinum were able to come up with a range of viable candidates. Their experience in our field was an advantage in understanding who we were looking for, and the skills and experience that our ideal candidates would bring. Each time, Chris listened to what our requirements were, and was willing at times to challenge our views. His observations were well supported by evidence of current market trends. The results have been quick, easy and effective recruitment activity. "
"I really appreciated Chris’s professionalism and supportive approach. He spent time in order to thoroughly understand my profile and expectations, to review the job position ensuring that it was a good match, and to identify my strengths and weaknesses. He helped me to prepare each set of interviews and always followed up shortly after. Today, I am very happy in my job. Most importantly, it is exactly as I expected at the end of the recruitment process."
"Chris has been instrumental in securing a significant step forward in my career path. I was introduced to him after applying online for a post he had advertised, and was later offered, after a rigorous three stage interview process. He took the time to understand my career aspirations and personality profile in a reassuring manner. This gave me comfort in knowing that he made sure that I would meet the expectations of the employer before stepping into the first interview. During the process Chris made himself readily available to provide valuable insight into the company and the interviewers both before and after, giving me the best possible chance of preparing appropriately. In my experience, what differentiates Chris from other recruiters is the tailored, individual approach in which he matched my skills, experience and personality with my employer’s key requirements. I would highly recommend his services from both an employer and candidate perspective."
