What our customers say

Escape Recruitment has been nothing but helpful to the business in recent months and we cannot thank them enough. After a short visit to our facility, the Escape team were able to take away a portfolio of office and shop floor core manufacturing positions we needed to fill urgently and delivered on their promise to get the right candidates in front of us within days.

I recognise that this quick turnaround of candidates who all matched my portfolio requests has helped the company continue operations and minimised the impact that would have been felt had we not used Escape.

In addition, I found the Escape teams honesty quite helpful and refreshing, not just with the financials, guidance on new market salary expectations...

Burton’s Biscuits have worked closely with Nick Crawford and Escape Recruitment [since 2015]. Having successfully filled a variety of vacancies across our business, including but not limited to positions within our engineering, production, quality and senior management teams, we now consider Escape to be one of our main suppliers for recruitment services across our business. We have found the team at Escape Recruitment to be highly knowledgeable about our industry and the candidates they introduce to our business are of a high quality and know what to expect in terms of interview and the role they are applying. The overall quality of delivery from Escape is excellent and we would be happy to recommend their services to other organi...

Escape truly work in partnership with [Technip FMC] and have developed a sound understanding of our business.  Without exception the consultants at Escape enjoy positive relationships with the key interfaces within our Company.  What makes them stand out is their people, their robust selection processes, the focused approach to managing our resourcing campaigns and the drive to deliver candidates who are a best fit for our business, the specific technical requirements of particular roles, our culture and environment.  We have the utmost confidence in their ability to find us the right candidates without compromise and deliver on our agreements.  Client satisfaction... absolutely!"

When working with Escape, I found them to have an excellent understanding of our business and industry. They were very much aware of the challenges that can be faced when hiring, and put forward quality candidates that were an excellent fit for our business both technically and culturally. They managed the recruitment process in a professional and well organised manner, and simplified the whole experience for us. The...

Escape made my recent search for a Procurement Manager amazingly easy; Shuna was there to support and guide every step of the way, which meant that I could get on with my day to day knowing that everything that needed done was covered.  Brilliant job!

The North British Distillery has worked with Escape as one of its chosen recruitment partners since 2005.  During that time I have found the team to be knowledgeable, professional, consultative and creative in meeting our needs.  The Escape team understand our DNA both technically and culturally and never fail to provide us with excellent recruitment support and services. 

The team have worked with us to deliver a robust recruitment process that incorporates appropriate psychometric assessment tools.   We find that this makes our decision making process more effective and the results are a lower staff attrition rate amongst new hires. 

I would not hesitate to recommend Escape to my collea...

From my first conversation with Nick, he was very informative regarding Highland Spring, their ethos, their market position and where the role fitted in with the structure. He pointed out the specific cultural changes they were trying to implement and at what stage they were in their journey. This communication began during an initial telephone call and was further expanded upon during a follow up face to face meeting. Pre-interview briefing notes were comprehensive and a well thought out introduction to the company. It allowed me to gear my further research into key areas and left me feeling really confident I knew enough about the company in order to formulate clearly just why I wanted to join their high performing team.

Escape Recruitment Services has provided me with an exemplary level of service [since 2012] as one of Heineken’s key preferred temporary recruitment suppliers.

Linda is very quick to respond, provides great support, and excellent in delivering our resource demand when we need it. Linda has delivered on some key temporary recruitment campaigns for us over the years as a business in particular for our Customer Contact Centre in Livingston (Sales Advisors), IT Service Desk (Edinburgh), Brewery site in Tadcaster (Sales Support Executives) and London (Front of House Executives) where she has sourced credible candidates that match the spec and budget requirements resulting in many temp to perm contracts being offered and us ret...

Charlotte is always well presented, polite, full of passion for what she does and very professional in how she has approached the selection and placement of the temporary staff and how she has helped me with trying to find suitable candidates for the new roles we are looking into. 

It is a pleasure to work with her and I am sure we as a business will continue to enjoy the excellent working relationship we have with Escape as long as there are such good people within your team.

Very professional and there to help when you need it!

Escape is a great agency to work with and provided some good candidates for the positions we were advertising for.  Very friendly and great communicators, I will definitely use this agency in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone.
