Kind Words From Our Clients & Candidates
UTi (now DSV) have utilised the services of SDW for almost 10 years now, in which time they have never failed to deliver an excellent service. SDW has a great understanding of the freight industry and the Consultants take the time not only to understand the role we are recruiting for but to get a good feel for our company and values.
This September we saw one of our employees leave us after 5 fantastic years, to go and work for a shipping line. Replacing her was never going to be easy, but our great recruitment partner SDW Recruitment came up trumps once again.
I was a little sceptical at first with a pay up front recruitment service, but SDW’s eRecruit solution seemed to fit our requirement and budget perfectly. SDW took the time to understand our company and the requirements of the role & the experience we were looking for and then went to work. SDW presented a number of very suitable applicants, all with the relevant experience, managed the whole interview process in which we successfully recruited.
Can you believe it’s nearly been 3 years since you got me the job! Isn’t that just crazy how time has flown by! Work is brilliant, I have since excelled in my career here, and taken on so much more work and responsibility, and been on a few BTEC courses to better my knowledge in import and export etc. It’s just brilliant, couldn’t be happier to be honest! I would tell people to go to you guys first – I always speak very highly of SDW’s service!
I have been very impressed with the service provided by SDW. I am certainly convinced that they are the foremost agency in the Logistics business. Everyone at SDW is very friendly and totally understand one’s needs in looking for a job. I would always recommend SDW
Wow, wow and wow – After SDW was recommended to me by an ex colleague who I worked with years ago, I never thought that they’d work so hard and quickly to secure me a job back in the industry I have always loved but had to leave a number of years ago. They seem to know everyone, and so proactive – thank you again 🙂
SDW Recruitment has an excellent understanding of the shipping industry, and provide a professional service, putting forward suitable applications of pre-interviewed candidates, who have the relevant experience we look for.
Just a quick email to thank you and the team for supporting me in my job hunting. With the support of your team, I found the whole process very easy and successful – I am pleased to say I have settled in well at XXX quite quickly and look forward to a successful career here.
We are currently celebrating our 30th year in business. Thank you for your support over the years – we could have only achieved this with your help in finding some great staff for us.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you as a recruiter or to use you again. I wish you all every success and thank you for getting me a role I never thought I would get.
