Stuart Thomson placed me in my current role 3 months ago. Professional, dedication, considerate are not enough to cover Stuart's excellent work. He absolutely stands out from all the recruiters I encountered. Gold star to the agency overall as well, my calls to the office are always answered with manner and patience. They not just get you a job but also make sure it is the right one for you.

Stephanie has been very professional in guiding me through the interview preparation, what an amazing service she’s given me. Highly recommended.

I worked with Michael and Jack ahead of an interview. Both were really helpful with great communication. Michael made sure I had everything I needed ahead of the interview including the job description and a walk through the types of questions asked. This meant I wasn’t worrying too much about the format of the interview and could concentrate on interview prep.

Just wanted to say thanks to Jamie Palmer. He is a great listener and stands out from other recruiters. His dedication to prepping you for interviews is very helpful and he does good research of the company he is pitching to. The constant keep in touch and building that relationship stands out. Robertson & Bell are a professional company with years of experience. Issy is also fantastic and a great recruiter. Robertson and Bell share there candidates for job roles which stands out from other recruitment agencies. I would recommend them as they keep you updated rather than having to chase yourself. Thanks once again Jamie and Issy.

I was very impressed with both Lewis and Stuart at Robertson Bell. For once, a recruitment agency that actually looked at my CV and matched my skills and experiences with a role that suited me and I was interested in doing! Too often, recruitment companies only pick up on a small part of someone's CV and send details of jobs that are not relevant / of no interest. Not so Robertson Bell. Very good move for me - at the right time, the right salary. Definitely recommend them and, if necessary, will be asking them to help me find my next role!
14:42 30 Apr 19
Steph provided a first class service and found the ideal candidate for a role that become available at short notice. I would definitely recommend this recruitment agency for both employers and candidates.
10:27 16 Apr 19
I have been recently placed to a new finance role through Robertson Bell and my consultant was Stuart Thomson. This role exactly matched with my previous experiences and his selection of the role and a great organisation for me was fantastic! Throughout the selection process he kept himself very professional and friendly. He made each stages in the selection process memorable for me!!! Really impressed.
15:09 14 Apr 19
I would like to thank Chelsea Coltart for finding me a new finance role. Calm under pressure and a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait to start this role soon and if you need a new job in finance, she’s the one to speak to . Many thanks Ibrahim
14:10 12 Apr 19
Applied on line for a position Steph contacted me near immediately, the swiftness and ease we set up my account and the speed the she gained me an interview is beyond compare many agencies need to take a note from Stephanie’s technique. Very pleased and very very impressed.
13:39 11 Apr 19
Chelsea is an absolute star- restored my faith in recruiters after a few bad experiences recently.Super service and genuinely interested in you. Matched me perfectly to a position I'm sure I'm going to love.I'd reccomend this firm to anyone looking for a real genuine people focused service.
16:51 07 Mar 19
Very professional and helpful staff. In particular, Stephanie Grainger, who has now placed me in 2 different and consecutive temp roles. She is very talented and friendly. She truly invest her time in building relationships with candidates and really helps them to find roles.
22:04 25 Feb 19
Working with RB and in particular Stephanie Grainger has been a pleasure with a favourable outcome. - Thank you!

Hello all.. I was very institutionalised through many years in the military and was a bit scared doing agency work with associated risks, worries and insecurities. How wrong was I!I was lucky enough to touch base with Issy Symmons at RB and she was lovely, reassuring and very patient with me. Whether the questions were professional or more technical (ie registering, use of a payroll company or filling in timesheets!) the company, through Issy, have been marvellous. I trust no one, but recommend this company and it’s engaging and polite staff. I look forward to continuation of work through them and their professional advice. I haven’t felt so valued and supported since my military days. TJ
18:34 01 Feb 19
A rare recruitment consultant that calls when they say they will, updates you when promised and doesn't fob you off with obvious untruths. Steph is a rare breed and I am so happy I found her. Hopefully a long and happy association has been born.
20:59 28 Jan 19
I have dealt with 2 recruiters and the level of service is very through and not only did they express the employers specification but matched the role beyond just work and made sure that it is a perfect fit for both parties. Extremely impressive
11:17 25 Jan 19
Highly recommend Robertson Bell especially Lesley Botterill who has been amazing helping me find my new role. Really taking time to understand me and what I was looking for. Super responsive and supportive! Thank you x
14:38 17 Jan 19
Recently I have attended two interviews arranged by Robertson Bell consultant. They have matched my skills with client requirements. I have received job offer from both places. No time wasted. Thanks!
12:28 20 Dec 18
I received a first rate professional service from my dealings with Robertson Bell. My recruitment consultant, Andrew Burnage, made the process extremely straightforward and acted with complete integrity throughout. I would highly recommend Robertson Bell and Andrew Burnage to both recruiters and candidates.
12:12 22 Nov 18
Michael Swinburn secured my current role. He was very friendly and professional. He knew about the role in detail and was able to get all necessary information from the client. They are a great company and I would highly recommend using them.
15:37 21 Nov 18
I recently used Robertson Bell in applying for a not-for profit role. My main dealings were with Jamie Elliott who I found very helpful and professional throughout the application and interview process. He was willing to spend plenty of time discussing the role, the organisation, my own plans for the future and tips for a successfully interview. I feel he went above and beyond with this and ultimately this led to me thankfully securing the position. I have just completed my first week and am very happy with the role and organisation. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Robertson Bell and Jamie.
13:33 11 Nov 18
Having been both client and candidate with Robertson Bell, my experience with them was truly outstanding. Matt Millar was my contact there and I could not have received a more supportive and helpful advisor. He was always a step ahead of the game and could always be counted on. I highly recommend choosing Robertson bell and especially working with Matt. He knows his stuff and will go above and beyond anyone I know to ensure his clients are his top priority and they get the absolute best! Cannot commend him enough.
10:49 31 Oct 18
I've recently worked with Robertson Bell on a retained recruitment exercise for 5 roles, ranging from a couple of senior management accountants to a trainee accountant role. Stuart managed the whole exercise incredibly well, starting off with a real interest in what the roles entailed, wanting to really understand more than just what was written within the Job Description. The result of this was a set of really strong candidates, and we were able to successfully appoint to all of the roles we were advertising. The biggest challenge during the whole process was actually choosing the successful candidates after the interviews were concluded as we had 6 excellent, appointable candidates for two of the roles. I think there are worse positions to be in though! I'd definitely be more than happy to work with Robertson Bell again in the future.
17:11 30 Oct 18
Very competent recruitment agency, attentive to requirements, as a candidate and client. Cannot recommend enough .
16:28 29 Oct 18
I have recently had a very professional and excellent experience with Robertson Bell. Stuart has been brilliant throughout the entire process, guiding and supporting me right from the start. He took time to fully understand my requirements and kept me informed at all stages of the process. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Stuart. I would highly recommend him and his colleagues at RB.
14:26 26 Oct 18
Issy from Robertson Bell secured me an interview and the very next day i was offered the role. She managed to get me a substantial rise from my last role.It has been a pleasure working with her. She was totally upfront in regards to the role and was never pressuring me into anything unlike other recruitment agencies. She seems highly professional and there are a few other consultants she works with which have been very welcoming too. I highly recommend Robertson & Bell for anyone looking for a Finance role.
13:43 22 Oct 18
Kate & team were very helpful when I was looking for a new role and always available to offer advice. I can recommend them both to employers and people looking for a new job.
12:05 22 Oct 18
Great experience with Robertson Bell! Came here recommended by a colleague and they did not disappoint. Kate Marriott in particular was very helpful, guiding me and advising me writing the cover letter, she had excellent knowledge of the client and what they were looking for. I got the job!
20:59 20 Oct 18
Had the pleasure of being recruited through RB earlier this year. Lesley was extremely helpful, always contactable and offered great advice at every step of the application process. Very professional and would not hesitate to recommend them in the future.
16:22 19 Oct 18
I have a very good and professional experience as a contractor, the team is excellent specially my agency contact A Burnage , he always helpful and prefesdional when dealing with any question or issue i have!!
12:18 19 Oct 18
As a candidate, I had a brilliant experience - Lesley Botterill did a great job of matching me with excellent opportunities. A really personal and thorough service, highly recommended.
09:03 19 Oct 18
After 15 years in investment banking I wanted to switch industry entirely, which is not as easy as it seems. All other recruitment agencies were not interested but Robertson Bell not only took this on but also placed me in a role I could only have dreamed about. They were supportive and terrific.
09:48 18 Oct 18
I have used Robertson Bell as both a candidate and an employer and cannot fault them.Kate Marriott recruited me to a role that is a perfect fit. She took the time to understand what both I, and the employer, were looking for to ensure that the right person was in the right role. She was honest, supportive, interested and an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout.When a few months later I was in the position of needing to recruit, I went back to Kate who once again found the right person for the role. I think that having taken the time to know me and understand the business she was able to screen candidates effectively so that we did not have to.Highly recommended!
09:33 18 Oct 18
I've had consistently great service from the team over the past 4 years, both as a candidate and hiring manager. I
21:55 15 Oct 18
I worked with Harry on securing my last placement. Throughout the process, Harry was professional, kept me up to date at all stages of the (very) long hiring process, and we quickly built a good rapport. Would highly recommend Robertson Bell.
18:33 15 Oct 18
I recently worked with Robertson Bell and with one of their consultant, Mark Pryor for a fantastic opportunity. This lad is very helpful all throughout the application and interview process. He gave me helpful tips and really made an effort to get the role that I am applying for. He is one of the best consultant that I’ve worked with so far. Unfortunately, we did not get the result that we are expecting to get, but the entire experience working with Mark is very impressive!
15:27 12 Oct 18
I found Kate to be an excellent contact at Robertson Bell. I was recruited very quickly and with complete ease. Kate has always got back to my emails with impressive speed (usually just a few minutes!) and provided all information needed. She has been a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to turn to her should I be looking for a new role in the future. She has excellent relationships with the staff members at my place of work, particularly recruitment.
13:28 12 Oct 18
I recently had a very good and professional experience as a candidate. They treated me professionally during the whole process from application to positioning me in a great NGO. Very happy with their services and Michael as a great during the whole process.
06:01 12 Oct 18
I contacted Kate at Robertson Bell when I first started job hunting as I could see they had a good number of charity roles. Kate got back to me straight away, and was great. She really listened to what I was looking for, asked me good questions about my experience and was able to send me a range of suitable roles very quickly. Within a few days I had an interview, and now a fantastic new job. Highly recommended.
20:32 10 Oct 18
Kate placed me nearly 2 years and was fantastic to work with.Unlike a few recruitment agents who had approached me in the past, the roles offered were relevant and not 'forced'. I am happy to recommend her and Robertson Bell to anyone.
14:09 10 Oct 18
Kate was very professional and helped me to find a role that suited me perfectly! I was looking for a senior finance role within a charity. Her understanding of the Not-for-Profit sector and the requirements of the role was a great help in finding the right position. I am very happy to recommend her
13:23 10 Oct 18
I dealt with Kate, who was absolutely brilliant. Understood the industry I am in and understood what I wanted from my next career move. I have dealt with so many that couldn't be bothered to understand the complexity of what I do. I have already recommended Kate to others.
11:26 10 Oct 18
This is the first time working with Robertson Bell to recruit for a senior member of our fundraising team and I was impressed with Michael’s knowledge of the market and handling of the process from start to finish. They presented me with a very strong shortlist, from which we successfully appointed our first choice. I would happily recommend using Robertson Bell.
19:59 09 Oct 18
I approached Robertson Bell to assist me in one of my recruitment needs. I was so impressed by the calibre of the candidates shortlisted for me. In the end, it was so difficult to choose who to offer the role too, as all candidates were very strong. The entire recruitment took less than 2 weeks. Thanks Mark and Stuart @ Robertson Bell - Tower Hamlet Community Homes
08:30 09 Oct 18
I would like to say, my experience with Robertson Bell has been excellent, my agent was Andrew Burnage, I have had two jobs with Andrew, very helpful preparing me for interviews and always keeps in touch.I would use recommends Robertson Bell all the time.Manj
13:24 05 Oct 18
I have worked with Robertson Bell on several occasions, each occasion my point of contact was Stephanie Grainger. The opportunity that stands out on its own is for the contract I am currently working on makes this a prime example of good old fashioned communication, with an extremely hard working and dedicated consultant working on my behalf, matching my skill set to the opportunity available. Stephanie has always gone out of her way to find the best possible opportunities and even when I have worked elsewhere, she strives to keep me updated with my situation. She knows me very well having worked with her before, and would always ensure I was well suited to each opportunity she presented to me. She knows how I work and the environment I strive in and this is one of those. A true professional I take my hat off to because this role - was one that Stephanie knew i would be perfectly suited to, and how right she was, even if it was third time lucky! Her determination and commitment to ensuring I achieved the eventual goal was a testimony to what a valuable member of RB she must be. It took a few attempts to get off the ground for one reason or another, but it didn’t deter Stephanie infact the opposite. Maintaining close contact and excellent communication with both myself and the employer every step of the way I felt like I was always going to achieve the best possible results with Stephanie fighting my corner. She has not only got me one of the best rates Iv ever had but she was also very instrumental in the assurance of the finer details and everything went perfectly and I have even now had a rate increase and an unexpected extension, showing that thanks to Stephanie’s attention to detail and meticulous negotiation I have now been fortunate to have worked in an organisation that is second to none, a very professional and highly regarded placement, which had always attracted me for sometime prior. It is a great place to work and a very good name to have on my resume, I couldn’t have been better placed. I have shown and expressed my gratitude for the hard work and extra mile shown many times by Stephanie in the latter stages of the process and wanted to reiterate this once more. She is as already mentioned a true professional in her line of business, an outstanding person and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again in the future or recommend. So thank you Steph, we got there in the end. Five stars doesn’t come close so I’ll double that at the very least!!
13:00 05 Oct 18
I was recruited into my current post as Director of Corporate Services by Robertson Bell and the whole process was well managed and professional. They kept me fully informed of progress and helped with the final package negotiation. Recommended.
10:13 05 Oct 18
I have gone through Robertson Bell for a couple of applications including one for which i was successful in getting and have always received fantastic service, the recruitment consultant called Michael Swinburn managed the application process and I felt I was always kept in the loop , that my questions were always answered and interviews followed up for useful feedback to improve my future chances. I never once had to phone up to ask what was happening to my application , in fact I'm pretty sure Michael was on holiday with his family whilst keeping me up to date with the progress of my application and negotiating my starting salary. I would definitely use them again as it was probably the smoothest application process I have experienced .
12:40 04 Oct 18
Pleasantly surprised toget a referral for a job from ROMA that I wasn’t aware of but feel is very appropriate for me given to very niche background. They must have had my details from another application that I had made and were able to match me with the role I was contacted for. ROMA has kept me informed of the process by email and telephone so I know what is going on.
15:58 02 Oct 18
Lesley Botterill provided the best ever experience that I have had with a recruitment agent throughout my entire career spanning some 20 + years both as a candidate and a recruiter!From the initial contact, meeting, job application and recruitment process I have never felt so valued and supported. All of this was done with Lesley’s wonderful personal style and great humour that immediately set me at ease and enabled me to be the best candidate I could be.I was kept up to speed every step of the way, given detailed and useful information about the hiring organisation that enabled me to better tailor my application and ultimately secure the role I wanted.I thoroughly recommend working with Lesley and Robertson Bell without hesitation.
