Having worked with Benjamin Douglas for nearly 2 years, we regard Doug and his team an extension of our own organization and they play a considerable role in helping us grow our business. Benjamin Douglas started recruiting for our technical team, identifying talented developers to join our software engineering group. We quickly recognized that Benjamin Douglas was different to other staffing agencies and based on a number of fast & efficient placements in this department, we expanded their scope to recruit for our sales and consulting teams. Over the last 2 years, Benjamin Douglas have been involved in the selection of 10+ members of our team and we have been delighted with the talent that they have bought to our company.

We look for these qualities in a recruiting company and have found Benjamin Douglas excel in all these areas:

  • Tenacious and persuasive; many of the people we hire are not looking to leave their current role when they are initially approached, so for us the job of the recruiting company is to paint a vision of our company and persuade the candidate to “take the call”. Benjamin Douglas excel at this and as a result we have hired many talented people via Benjamin Douglas who had no intention of leaving the role until Doug or a member of his team called. In deed the primary reason we started working with Benjamin Douglas was because, Doug Viney is an incredibly persistent and persuasive leader himself!
  • Understand and align; the only way Benjamin Douglas can achieve the above, is by truly understanding our business, our mission and values as a company. They take the time to get to know us as a company and as people so they can present this vision to candidates. They are geinuely interested in our evolution as company.
  • Identifying & filtering; Doug has a real “knack” for looking at a candidate profile and quickly separating the “wheat from the chaff”. This means we are only presented candidates that match our tight criteria and they come to our screening calls well prepared with a good foundational understanding of the role and company. Recruiting is a hugely time consuming task for us and Benjamin Douglas have streamlined our process and saved us a huge amount of time be being selective in their approach.
  • Persistent and committed; with a highly selective “A player” only philosophy when it comes to hiring, we need recruiters that are persistent and committed and “won’t stop” until we have found and hired the talent we need. Benjamin Douglas work tirelessly to do that.

In summary having worked with many different recruiters, Doug is the best we have come across and enjoy his intelligent and positive approach to recruitment. We value the partnership and would not hestitate to recommend their services to fast growing companies that are looking for “A player” talent.

 

VP of Sales for a SaaS Company

I very much appreciate the candor and professionalism that Benjamin Douglas showed me. I was approached on Linkedin by Benjamin Douglas regarding a potential career change. We had multiple conversations leading up to my introduction to the hiring manager. The recruiter from BD was very open, honest and helped build trust with me throughout the process. As I progressed through the interview process he continually asked me for my feedback and prepared me for who I would be speaking with next. They continued to follow up with me a month after I accepted my new position to make sure I was happy with the decision.

Happy Candidate

I work with many recruitment consultants in my role, and Doug stands head and shoulders above them all. He works hard to understand my requirements, and as a result he never wastes my time referring someone if they don’t fit the role. He doesn’t cut and run after placing employees, but stays in touch and works diligently to make sure that things are working out, and if there is any hint of a problem, he takes the initiative to address them before they get out of hand. It is very telling that the people Doug has placed in my organization also respect him, and the services that he provides. A truly outstanding recruitment professional, who I would recommend to anyone (with the possible exception of my competitors!)

Kevin Singleton, Oracle

Doug has never let me down and always found me the right people at the right time. In my business I need quick responses and have short delivery times. Doug has worked with me every time to understand exactly what I need and keeps refining his selection criteria to save me time and money. I have come to have a friendship with Doug outside of work through working with him and have a great respect for his integrity as a person and a business colleague.

Colville Wood, Coublis

Doug has never let me down and I’ve worked with him on both side of recruitment. He’s the first person I ring when I’m on the market as a contractor, even when he’s out the country, sorry Doug. He acts with professionalism and integrity and I feel he walks the line between contractor and client very well. In my times as a manager involved with hiring I do my up most to deal with Doug. He knows what I’m looking for and can turn position round in a tight spot even if I’m not being the best client. Thanks Doug

Jolyon Wharton, WebEnabled

Doug is a very reliable and dependable recruiter who is honest and upfront. He has an excellent understanding of the IT arena which puts him in good stead when getting the right person for a position. I can recommend him highly and he is on the top of my list of recruitment agents

Jobie Hoar, uSwitch

Benjamin Douglas is absolutely, without reservation, the best recruitment agency I’ve worked with. The folks are completely professional but also very warm and extremely insightful. Within weeks of being contacted I had a job offer for my dream job at my dream company. I continue to gladly send all potential candidates to Benjamin Douglas because I know if there is a good fit for any candidate out there, Benjamin Douglas will find it and place them in great jobs with great companies. If I were in the market for another role they’d be the first place to which I’d reach out.

Happy Candidate

Once you have worked with Doug, you will agree and relate to all the recommendations he has been given. He is a genuine, charismatic, and trusting professional that delivers to a very high standard. Doug aided me in attaining a position and it was evident that he did his research and knew exactly what his client was looking for. Doug manages relationships and expectations effortlessly. I have worked with some agencies that over-promised and under-delivered, that is just not Doug’s style. He is straight-forward and consistent. Doug approaches his work effectively, efficiently, and is someone you can trust implicitly. I value his expertise and highly recommend him
