    What our clients say about us
    After leaving a long-term role at a local company, I had been working with a number of nationwide recruitment agencies with very little success. I contacted Wote Street People and Maxine and her team immediately focused on my strengths and skills, not just my qualifications and experience. After helping me adjust my CV, I looked at the market with new optimism and within weeks I took up a new role at a much higher level than I had previously planned.

    The key benefit that Wote Street People offers is the ability to truly understand the role being sought. Not only the qualifications and physical skills, but also the understanding of the type of people and culture and how prospective candidates will fit into an organisation. This is a key reason as to why we use Wote Street People.
    Andy Cecil – Managing Director Andy Cecil – Managing Director
    The people at Wote Street People are really helpful and very friendly, they are driven and care deeply about the needs of their clients. Wote St. all the way!
