Candidate Testimonials

Managing Director
Steve is different gravy, when I was looking for a new role at a pivotal moment, he proactively went out and made face to face meets happen with industry luminaries, not just ones he knew already & try to make those fit. Hugely consultative approach, and I am very grateful he matched me with the absolute correct opportunity, getting me in the room with someone neither of us knew, but who ultimately ended up backing me to start my own business with a long standing friend & colleague as part of an amazing recruitment group.

Regional Talent Acquisition Leader
Steve is excellent at what he does, after being made redundant due to cost cutting and needing to look for senior roles within recruitment, Steve hunted me out appreciating my skill set, knowledge and experience. Steve makes everything about YOU, and then matches you, to the best fit values, behaviors and skills to the company he is working with. Steve and his team invest time, keep promises and really go the extra mile to keep you informed and abreast of conversations he’s having in your behalf. Very rare in today’s recruitment. I was not just a number to Steve, I was talent and he recognised that. I would highly recommend Steve, his ethic and his total grasp of how you fit into the market place. I truly look forward to working with Steve in the future. A great man in an arena where numbers matter – Steve makes YOU matter

Client Services Director
I’ve known Steve for over 8 years now – he is quite simply the best in this space! I’ve dealt with other headhunters but no-one is more connected or knowledgeable than Steve. He goes the extra mile to support candidates through the process and his professionalism and dedication shines through. There is no-one else I would turn to as a candidate or indeed client of Steve’s. Quite simply the best and highly recommended!

Partnership Director
When I first met Steve I was immediately impressed with his fresh, professional, open, and honest approach. Rather than target vacancies he had to fill, he focused on getting to know my background and understand my motivations for future roles. Through a combination of these discussions and his vast network he quickly and proactively put me in touch with appropriate organisations. Some conversations were speculative and some were more role specific but all were an extremely good cultural fit. He understands business, the market, and people making him excellently placed to assist organisations in shaping their structures and individuals to be provided with the best opportunities.

Recruitment Director
In the busy space of Global Recruitment, Executive Search & Talent Attraction, Steve is one individual who clearly stands out from the crowd. He is a complete professional. Open, honest with a true desire to supporting your next career move. I always found Steve engaging, with a deep understanding of the organisation and roles I was being consider for. If you are looking to either hire someone, or make that next move within a specialist sector or RPO/MSP then Steve should be on your contact list.

Compliance Consultant
Working with biggSolutions during my job search was a pleasure from start to finish. They were always on hand when needed and ensured a smooth and efficient process from interview to hire. Steve and Mandy have kept in touch with me throughout; during my notice period and since I started my employment. Their professional approach and expertise within the industry are immense and I would recommend them to anyone seeking not only a new role, but a quality role.

RPO Client Relationship Director
I was first introduced to Steve about 4 years ago by a former colleague of mine – He told me just how professional Steve was, and what a first class reputation he had built up by delivering on his promises!
I have recently taken up an exciting new position & Steve was responsible for engineering things, with what I can now personally endorse as first class service levels supported by superior communication at all times…….Quite simply, this chap is a Pro!

Global Director
Steve is excellent at identifying the required skills for a role and takes the time to uncover the best possible people to fill that role. I have experienced Steve’s detailed and thorough approach and he is first rate and a real asset to any organisation.

Director of Finance
I have worked with Steve in two roles, firstly with Polycom and then at Intuit. In both instances Steve was an asset to the business as both companies had rapid expansion plans and Steve was on point to recruit top talent with short lead-times. Steve uses his network well to identify the right talent for the role and culture of the company and where needed conducted successful targeted recruitment campaigns that supported the business in its growth objectives

Talent Acquisition Lead
Steve was great as the Global Talent Acquisition Leader at Intuit, had a great understanding of the business and needs, and passed on some invaluable knowledge to me before he moved on. He’s also a great coach and mentor with huge amounts of passion. Great asset to any team as Steve looks at all elements of recruitment from hiring plans, sourcing strategies to relationship management and on-boarding.

Sales Director
“In my experience I found Steve to be very supportive and personable. Steve helped me to find a new career within Polycom’s Major Account team. During the whole process he acted with a lot of integrity. Steve is a consummate professional and I would recommend him to any one who is considering using his services. Many thanks Steve

Regional Account Manager
“Steve spent time to understand what I was looking for and worked hard to support me with my search. I found him to be very open and diligent and he works with tireless enthusiasm. I am happy to recommend him and would not hesitate to contact him again in the future should the need arise.

Client Director
“Steve helped me to secure a new role within recruitment. He was extremely professional and demonstrated an excellent understanding of what I was looking for in my career. He came back to me with several opportunities that matched my requirements perfectly, and dealt with the entire process in a very timely, efficient and helpful manner. I would certainly recommend him to any colleagues looking to make a move in the recruitment industry, and I would certainly encourage any recruitment organisation to engage with him when searching for the top recruitment talent in the industry.”
