Genium is by far the most professional and successful recruitment consultancy I have had the pleasure to work with. The depth of its market knowledge and its ability to source professionals that will add value to the business is great. Genium is meticulous in the preparation and qualification of candidates and I would not hesitate in recommending Genium as a recruitment consultancy.
Derek Winskill, IT Director, Manufacturing company
I have worked with Genium both as a candidate, and now as a client building my own development team. Having been impressed by their approach to recruitment as a candidate, I had confidence that Genium would find the most suitable candidates for me when it came to recruiting for myself. Genium will take the time to understand a brief in detail, and puts a lot of work into pre-qualifying candidates before even presenting a CV, ensuring a good fit for both candidate and client alike. I have the confidence that I can hand over the hard work of selection to Genium, in the knowledge that we'll get the right person for the job.
Peter Howarth, Technical Director, British Corner Shop
I highly recommend Vicki and Genium for recruiting your IT staff. Unlike a lot of agencies, Genium will spend a considerable amount of time researching and interviewing candidates to ensure they are of the calibre and fit required for the role, and Genium will not put a CV in front of you unless it is convinced of their suitability. This year I have employed a number of staff that Genium has put forward, and it has made the recruitment process far easier for us.
Meirion Edwards, Head of IT Operations
Lots of IT recruitment firms can provide strong skills matched candidates. Over the last 3 years, Genium has worked with me and my team to understand Crest’s business and our culture. It has therefore been able to find candidates with both the behavioural and technical competencies to fit within my team. Genium has managed to consistently provide a small number of highly credible candidates for each role, saving us time and effort.
Myles Gibbins, Group IT Director, Crest Nicholson PLC
Genium Selection has supplied a number of candidates for me over time, specifically both permanent and interim Project Managers, Network Engineers and Service Managers. Whilst working with Genium and Vicki particularly I was genuinely surprised and delighted as to the level of effort that Vicki put into each recruitment campaign. That effort covered face-to-face engagement with me and the other hiring managers, expectation management and education as to the nature of the sector in respect of recruitment at that time (not just blind promises that they'd be able to deliver come what may) and in-depth written reviews of the role being recruited. That engagement and effort comfortably surpassed that of ALL of my other favourite agencies both then and now, and those were agencies who had delivered for me time and time again, so I really rated them. Most importantly, as a measure of effectiveness, not only did Vicki put an unparalleled amount of effort in, but the candidates she submitted were extremely well-tailored to the vacancy, and I ended up hiring nearly every candidate she put forward, and most of them rate in my top ten of all-time hires (you know, the ones that go on to smash the role and far exceed yours and everyone else's expectations). She's an outstanding recruiter - I cannot rate her highly enough.
MATTHEW LUCAS, HEAD OF IT OPERATIONS
Genium remove a major ‘pain’ element from the recruitment process. They are thoroughly professional and pride themselves on only providing highly suitable candidates after ensuring up front that they are crystal clear as to exactly what your requirements are. They have been an excellent partner for us and we look forward to working alongside them in the future as we continue to successfully grow our business year on year.
