Client Testimonials

A number of staff at our charity have worked with Civitas Recruitment over the last few months. We’d been struggling to find the right candidates for some of our more niche roles, and Syed has done a great job, working closely with hiring managers on their needs before presenting us with a range of suitable people to interview. How he finds them is a mystery but it’s something we really appreciate! He’s highly personable and responsive to emails and phone calls – a pleasure to work with. We certainly intend to continue working with Syed and have no hesitation in recommending Civitas Recruitment.

I would thoroughly recommend Syed for a professional and cost-effective service which enabled us to recruit successfully to a key position. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and a pleasure to work with.

Deputy CEO, Access to Justice Foundation

We recently used Syed for a key finance position, which was required at short notice. I didn't even get a chance to prepare a full JD but Syed was able to understand the requirements over the phone and within a day sent me a list of very strong candidates one of whom we selected. I was really pleased with his personal approach to understanding the client's requirement and being flexible where needed. I would strongly recommend him to anyone and will certainly use him again in future.

Int Charity

We approached Syed and Civitas Recruitment because we were struggling to find the right candidate for a key role, due to the specialised nature of our work and the role. Rarely has a decision been so swiftly vindicated: within a matter of days, Syed had found a range of highly qualified and experienced individuals. I’ve just made the offer to the successful candidate and they have accepted: I’m confident that they are going to be a great addition to our team, and I can honestly say we wouldn’t have found them without Civitas’s help.

Director, The Equal Rights Trust

Syed has been an effective executive recruiter for The Lowdown on several occasions. He is responsive, reliable and committed, 3 qualities essential to success in his role, and I would not hesitate to use his services again.
