Having handled our own recruitment in house for many years we decided we needed some help in finding the right type of candidate quickly.  Chapman Tate took the time to understand our business and the type of individuals we were trying to find.  Most importantly they were happy to work with us to provide flexible options, not sticking to the rigid approach so often seen from traditional recruitment companies.

A modern approach to recruitment, no hassle, just delivers results. Refreshing to not be hassled unendingly and get a high % of relevance in the candidates put forward.

We approached Chapman Tate to help us with our recruitment requirements as we were having great difficulty finding suitable candidates for a niche position we were recruiting for. Within a matter of hours we had a number of suitable candidates, one of which was hired. If you’re looking for a professional and personable recruitment service at a very competitive cost then I would recommend you speak with Chapman Tate Associates.
