“Evolution Group took the time to understand my career needs and to direct me toward roles and companies that could deliver on these. Dave Conaghan at Evolution Group then actively marketed me to suitable companies, utilising his wide business network. The personal service and results Dave and Evolution Group provided were beyond my expectations and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dave to any candidate or employer.” “Right from the offset I found working with Evolution Group a more than positive experience, so much so that Dave’s enthusiasm in getting me into what I was looking at, really gave me confidence and helped reassure me in what was at the time a very stressful and emotional time (as the three other agencies I was using at the time failed to give me any sort of peace of mind). For this reason, I have no hesitation in recommending Evolution to any of my friends or anyone else that may find themselves contemplating a new career path.”
“I would highly recommend Evolution Group to anyone else seeking employment due to the commitment, dedication, professionalism and assistance you have offered to me throughout my process. I must say it has been the most exceptional service I’ve ever received from any agency ever. You really do value your candidates and it really showed in your assistance throughout the interview process…………. A+++++++. Thank you for always keeping me posted with feedback and updates of interviews even if it’s after hours. That is just absolutely unbelieavably amazing. Keep up the fantastic work – it is agencies like you that will make a huge difference in this market. If I know of anyone seeking employment, I will direct them to you first. I will also be looking at employing Telesales staff in the near future in my new role, so you will definitely be hearing back from me. Thanks again for the fantastic service.”
“Extremely supportive and helpful, Dave is straight up and is always pushing you forward and with excellent advice and motivation, I am extremely appreciative for what he has done for me, and would always look to Dave for future career developments.”
“When I was recently made redundant I registered with several recruitment companies. Evolution was the only one who didn’t pigeon-hole me and push me into a role I didn’t want. Instead Dave really listened to where I wanted to go with my career and was fiercely proactive about finding opportunities for me. As a result within 3 weeks I secured a role at a company I have always wanted to work for, and I believe my career is heading in the direction I want it to.”
“As a candidate I can not thank Dave at Evolution Group enough for his all his hard work he put into finding me my ideal job. I have been very impressed with his professionalism and market knowledge, which gave me such confidence and I felt that I did not need to register with any other agency. He has given me his undivided attention and totally grasped what I was searching for in the market and went out to the market and found it. He constantly stayed in touch through out the recruitment process and we had many good laughs along the way. Great work, thank you again Dave.”
“From the first meeting with Dave at Evolution Group I felt that he was genuinely interested in what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go in the long term. I felt that I was going to get the right job, not just a job. My experiences with other agencies had not been great and it was refreshing to find a company that was client focused, with a hands on approach. I also appreciated Dave’s honesty and candour, making sure my expectations were realistic. Dave made sure I was happy with the job as well as the company culture. I was never made to feel like I had to take the first opportunity that presented itself to me. Unfortunately I am now in a job I love, so I am not anticipating using Evolution Group unless we are recruiting for the department. However I would absolutely recommend them.”
“Evolution Group is a fantastic recruitment company. Right from my first phone call and interview I have experienced a friendly, helpful and professional service. Dave has carefully matched me up with the perfect opportunity and I couldn’t be happier. Every step of the way I was impressed with the great communication, support and encouragement I received. Thanks Evolution, I love my new job, it’s ideal for me.”
“Great going Dave, and thank you very much. You are one of a kind in this extremely fake and fickle industry.”
“When I first spoke to Dave on the phone, I had a feeling he was different to any other recruitment agent. His full dedication and support throughout the recruitment process was fantastic. The fact that he believed in me was one of a kind, and made me realise soon after that he will definitely find me the perfect job! He was very much interested in knowing what my short and long term goals are, in order for him to land me the ideal position. Once a position was secured, Dave again showed outstanding dedication in following up the contract signing process. He is a great recruitment agent and I would like to thank him and recommend him to everyone looking for a specific job to shape their career.” “I found Dave to be genuinely interested in what the candidate wants, what is he is looking for in the next job, and his long term goals. He is also not afraid to approach clients for his candidates, which I find rare in today’s cosmetic world of recruitment. He not just works for his clients but, equally for his candidates as well. He also aims to put the right candidate forward for the right job, and goes to lengths to ensure that. I find him consistent in keeping touch, and keeping himself updated in an industry where recruiters forget about the candidate after an unsuccessful attempt. Dave made me feel comfortable and ensured that I was going for the right job.”
“Evolution Group provided a helpful and supportive framework for finding employment. They really work with you and add value; it’s like having an extra person batting for your team. Extremely proactive and professional in all dealings with a real human touch too.” “Dave instantaneously from our first discussion over the phone stood out from other recruitment agents I had spoken to. Dave cares for what you are looking to achieve with your career, he identifies your strengths, goals and ambition, all the while taking that information and matching you to the specific role that is ideally suited. After finding a brilliant prospective role for me, Dave spent extra time ensuring that I was prepared for the interview’s that followed, and making sure I understood all facets of the employment contract. Needless to say I’m now in an exciting role that suit’s me, and I’m still hearing from Dave. When it’s time to make the next move, Dave will be my first contact. Thank you Dave for all your help in getting me to where I am now.”
“Working with Dave is a refreshing move away from the transactional approach of many recruitment professionals. He truly understands his clients business requirements and is extremely competent at aligning these with the correct candidates. He is highly responsive in dealings between candidates and clients and manages the two in mutually beneficial way rarely seen in the industry. I would recommend the services of Evolution group to business and candidates who want to work with a true professional who gets results”
“Of the recruiters I dealt with during my recent job search Dave was easily the most responsive, the most proactive and the easiest to deal with. Dave worked hard to get me interviews with companies that were of interest and didn’t bother me with roles which were unsuitable. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Dave at Evolution Group next time I am seeking a new position.”
“Just as I thought it was going to be a big challenge getting a new job that was ideal for me, a call from ‘Dave Conaghan from Evolution Group’ came as a surprise. His voice came across as a person who knew what he wanted and I thought I would give it a shot. When I met Dave, his positive attitude, enthusiasm and confidence in his peoples skills (being very rare) made me feel comfortable right from the start. It not only gave me the confidence in his abilities but also in confiding the reasons I was looking for a new job. I guess his ethic on being open and honest worked for me and is very unique compared to most of the other Recruitment Agencies I had dealt with. I left that meeting knowing that I had a job and that it was going to be something that would keep me motivated and also bring opportunities to advance my career. It was only a matter of days that I had interviews and a week – an offer in hand!!! Congrats Dave, it’s a skill not many of us have and I really do appreciate the step by step organised process that you follow in the hunt for a new job. I commend your Go Getter Attitude. No mucking around, straight to the point, honest and deal closed!! Not to forget the care and confidence that Louise Elliott adds in the entire process. Congrats to you too!”
“I found Dave Conaghan of Evolution Group through a friend of mine he had recently placed and who spoke highly of him. Upon first contact with Dave, I could tell I wasn’t dealing with a typical recruiter. Right from the get go he kept me in the loop, listened to and understood my needs and was quick to respond to any queries and followed up on anything I threw his way. Dave is a salesman and recruitment is a very sales oriented business and I see this as being Dave’s one true point of difference. He has seen sales from both sides of the fence, sales and management, and I believe he will only match the recruit and employer only if they’re a perfect fit. The process of getting an offer from the role I was ultimately after was over six months but throughout this time, Dave stayed in touch, keeping me interested in the role.”
“I hereby wish to thank you for your effort in sourcing employment for me. In dealing with a number of consultants I found that Evolution Group was the most helpful and professional. I appreciated the feedback and being kept up to date with all developments as they came to hand. I felt confident that only the right position was being sourced for me and not merely pushed for a placement. I would gladly refer Evolution for your great service.”
“The Evolution Group is simply the most dedicated and enthusiastic recruitment agency around. The issue with many recruitment agencies is that you are just one of many candidates – another number so to speak. Your needs (as a candidate) are often forgotten when it comes to making a quick and easy placement for a client/employer. The Evolution Group knew my needs better than I did. They listened to what I had to say and their recommendations – both in terms of my career and role opportunities – were spot on. The Evolution Group also impressed with their level of professionalism and organisation. I was presented with packs for each role I interviewed for – which included the role description, printed pages from the company’s website and the details of the interview – all presented in a neatly branded folder. What other agency is this prepared? It certainly took pressure off me and made me more prepared for each interview. Lastly, I ended up not taking a role with the Evolution Group as another incredible opportunity happened to present itself elsewhere. I pulled out of the process with the Evolution Group last minute with a contract sitting on the table for what was a great role. Another agency could have easily reacted angrily to such disappointing news. However, Dave and the team were supportive and congratulated me on the role. Their interest was in seeing me in the right role regardless. So whilst disappointed – they remained professional and positive. They displayed complete integrity in a difficult situation. As a result of my experience with The Evolution Group – I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone seeking a new job opportunity. They are a small company with a big heart and bright future. Thanks Evolution Group for your dedication, energy and integrity. You are a cut above the rest.”
“I would like to thank both Louise and Dave for their assistance in helping me land this role. It is very rare to find recruiters who are genuinely interested and committed to helping candidates find not just a role but the right role. In particular I really appreciated how Louise and Dave made sure I was totally informed throughout the process.”
“Evolution Group stand head and shoulders above the rest of the recruitment industry. Dave & Louise guided me through my recent search and interview process with a high level of communication which meant that I was always up with the play, and only presented me with relevant and interesting roles. I was fully briefed before each interview and feedback was provided in an extremely timely and efficient manner. Dave is an astute, intelligent guy who has empathy for his candidates. He takes the time to truly understand what motivates them and what outcomes they are looking for in their next role. He is supported by Louise who is a truly dedicated professional. The difference between Evolution and the rest, is that they put in the effort to research and truly understand the role, the company and the candidate so they get it right first time, like they did with me! I have no hesitation in recommending Evolution Group to candidates and companies alike.”
“I write this recommendation for the purpose of sharing with you the outstanding skills and quality of service that Louise Elliott has to offer. Louise is expert in her field and surpasses expectations with the commitment and integrity shown towards her high quality of service. She introduced impressive forward thinking and clear and structured guidance helping overcome any unforeseen challenges that may have arisen. Louise holds strategic focus in maintaining the bigger picture at al times and demonstrates superb people and negotiation skills at keeping everyone on track in achieving the end goal. Louise instils instant confidence and trust in her ability. She is extremely personable, honest and holds utmost sincerity in nature. Her energy and positivity made working together a most enjoyable experience and was thrilled with the outcome. I would use Louise again in a heartbeat and would like to recomment readers to the same.”
“Thank you for your support while I was in the application process of the role I now have. I appreciated the advice and encouragement you gave and your enthusiasm. Its great to deal with someone who believes in the roles that she is representing, I will be recommending you for both people looking for work and to employers looking for new employees as you represented the position and the company really well.”
Thanks Evolution Group for your dedication, energy and integrity. You are a cut above the rest.
Evolution Group stand head and shoulders above the rest of the recruitment industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Evolution Group to candidates and companies alike.
Dave has been the shining example of how a recruitment and career consultant should operate
Dave is the benchmark. Since my first engagement with him some 4 years ago, Dave’s genuine interest in finding the right person for the role has always impressed.
