I 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 Director, Lubricants Sector
What 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. Sales Director
ABN 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. Operations & Sales Manager
Many head hunting companies have never really invested time in understanding the industry they recruit in, and do a blanket approach to recruitment. ABN Resource do the complete opposite and their deep understanding of the energy industry and network gives us access to staff who have delivered significant commercial success for us. Their consultants are specialists who understand the market they are recruiting for. If you want to bring the right people into your business, then I would always recommend using ABN Resource. General Manager, Oil Distribution Company
ABN Resource approached me with an extremely well matched role and from the very start considered carefully how I would fit into their clients business and the benefits of the position to myself. I really felt they took on board all of my points clearly and professionally. Throughout the process they were always on hand to answer any concerns or queries and gave me excellent guidance. Marketing Manager
James 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. I felt that I was being taken seriously and that ABN Resource go the extra mile to fit the right person to the right role. Account Manager
Extremely easy to work with, ABN takes time to understand in detail the role that needs filling. The 5 step approach works very well and speeds up the hiring process. By the time you reach the interview stage, you can be confident a hiring decision will be made. The customer service throughout is very attentive and I strongly recommend ABN to anyone hiring within our industries. Commercial Director, Fuel Sector
I recently contracted ABN Resource to assist in filling an open position with my company. There was an absolute goal of thoroughly understanding the requirements, which was followed up by a comprehensive analysis and presentation of 3 ideal candidates. I was impressed with the personal attention through the entire process including ABN Resource’s participation in the interviews, professional advice and completion on every commitment. I am 100% satisfied with the result and would highly recommend ABN Resource for your recruiting needs. VP Business Development
