We engaged Tandem to manage a large number of new Design Technology positions and implement the complete restructuring of our recruitment process to form an onsite service. Throughout our relationship I have been thoroughly impressed with the professionalism Tandem have shown. Our account was managed by Dan Huckle and he quickly grasped what we were looking for, not only in respect of the technical skill requirements but also the important behavioural and cultural fit aspects too, showing a real understanding of the people and business issues affecting our hiring decisions.We were particularly impressed with their understanding of the Architecture and Design industry, its nature and how this can alter the recruitment process. Tandem delivered within the agreed time frame, they kept us well informed of progress and delivered a sterling RPO underpinned with tailored technology. We have been especially impressed with the high level of service and communication that we have received from Dan and the team kept in touch with us throughout the process.. The team are especially helpful at managing the offer to onboarding stages of the recruitment process. They also are easy to adapt when the brief was modified or refined, which in this industry can be frequent, this highlights a high level of flexibility in their approach. This has made a real difference to us as this allowed us to offer real business solutions to the recruiting managers rather than simply a transactional process. We would certainly recommend Tandem to any prospective businesses looking to significantly improve their recruitment process.

We approached Tandem with a vacancy that we had been looking at bringing into the business for some time. It was evident that there was a skills shortage for our requirement in the South West but Tandem Talent were able to use their extensive network and deliver a number of suitable candidates. There was the obvious challenge presented to us by COVID-19, both in terms of the remote interview process and the number of candidates available. We were also presented with a challenge around a specific candidate that Tandem quickly fixed and got the recruitment process back on track. Tandem offers a really consultative approach and has some great advice to give around the market conditions and the recruitment process. They appreciate the balance of being in touch but also ensuring that they remain “front of mind”. I must say that the pace from them taking the requirement to shortlisting candidates, managing the interview process and offering the candidate was exceptional. I would definitely recommend them.

I engaged Tandem to help with the organisational restructuring and MBO of Oakland Construction. The project consisted of an executive search campaign to establish a new board of directors, the implementation of a new HR structure and upskilling a team to help with the future support of any recruitment projects as Oakland Construction grows. The end result exceeded my expectations having not only achieved all my goals but doing so in a confidential and professional manor. Tandem Talent executed my requirements perfectly and I could not recommend their services enough to any organisation looking for recruitment services and talent consultancy.

Having recently supplied us with two excellent postings and negotiated for employer/employee with equal enthusiasm, Kat really does listen to what we want and doesn't just ring us to talk about the weather and holidays – she will only send candidates that fit our bespoke requirements and keeps strictly to that. She is exceptionally business-like, prompt and professional at all times and is a pleasure to deal with

I have worked with Dan Huckle of Tandem Talent for a number of years and would highly recommend him to both prospective companies and executives looking to move on. I have had first hand experience of Dan's skills from both perspectives and cannot rate him highly enough for the added value he brings. Dan's strengths are his network, that are not only names in a book but serious contacts that he maintains close relationships with regardless of their circumstances, his extensive knowledge of the industry and his overriding desire to provide the best service possible throughout the process. I am always confident that Dan and the Tandem team will own the assignment from idea to delivery and will challenge me constantly throughout to ensure I get the best results possible. As the world wakes up again and companies start searching for the talent to give them the leading edge I am comforted by the fact that Dan and team will be ahead of the game and securing the best for his clients.
