Sales Director, Lubricants SectorI have worked with the team at ABN Resource, on several occasions, for the recruitment of key managerial positions. The approach untaken has proven to be very successful, with thorough pre-screening of candidates, leading to an excellent short-list for interview. On each occasion a candidate we have ultimately hired has proven to be a very effective & valuable addition to our team.
Sales DirectorWhat I’ve found to be very impressive is the personal care and attention to detail demonstrated by ABN Resource in all aspects of the recruitment process. As a candidate, I have not experienced a better approach in terms of getting to know the person behind the CV and I really felt they had a good understanding of my knowledge, experience and aspirations. If you value service, dedication and professionalism then I’d have no hesitation in recommending ABN Resource.
Operations & Sales ManagerABN Resource stood out for their level of professionalism, commercial awareness of the downstream oil markets they operate in, and a proactive approach to get me in front of key people in companies we targeted. I was given regular updates, if my consultant said they would do something they did! Their career advice was honest and genuine, with my interest at the forefront of decision making.

Account ManagerJames and his team are different from other recruiters I have used because they took time to understand me and my career needs. They didn’t pigeonhole me by product and market experience. Instead, they proactively sought opportunities based on my all round capabilities, skills, experience, and working cultures that I wanted to operate in.
