Testimonials

  • In order to prepare for a major new contract, Telindus engaged with Imperative and offered a clear outline of roles, responsibilities and priorities. As a result, we managed to recruit for over 20 roles in very short timescales whilst achieving a very high level of quality and calibre within all the candidates. Imperative Recruitment played a critical role in the project success and achieved excellent results in all technical and support areas. Their ability to listen and apply their understanding was and is exemplary, and they continue to support our recruitment strategy today

  • I’ve worked with Imperative at two different businesses now and they’ve never failed to impress or deliver. They get under the skin of exactly the type of person needed for the role, as well as the relevant experience and qualifications required and they always provide an excellent cross section of candidates. I’m not one for ‘kissing frogs’ and would rather have 2 or 3 highly suitable candidates to choose from at the end of the interview process – and Imperative have always provided this. Their search and candidate due diligence is always impressive, with detailed candidate profiles made available before interviews and with interviewees always well versed on what the role is and what it is that our business does. In my previous role, Imperative found me a first class service manager who has since moved on into a senior management position in that business. At my present business they have provided me with a Head of Pre-Sales, Systems Engineers, a Project Manager, contract personnel and even sales heads (which is not their core business, but which they’ve helped me with nonetheless). Imperative’s owner and principal consultant, Luke Quinn, is helpful, attentive and refreshingly enjoyable to work with. Imperative have become my ‘go-to’ recruitment partner and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

  • I have been working with Imperative for a couple of years. What stands out for me is that they really take the time to get a deep understanding of the roles we are looking to fill which, combined with the time they invest in maintaining knowledge of the company, means they can ensure that we get people who are absolutely right for us. They’ve placed numerous candidates from first line call handlers and technical through to senior managers, on occasion under significant time pressure, whilst maintaining an excellent long term success rate – in fact several of our highest performers have come through Imperative.

    Managing Director, Adtech Global a Unified Communications and Collaboration
  • NDI Technologies has been working with Imperative Recruitment for 10 years plus for both Contract and Permanent staff, and have painlessly recruited Systems Engineers, Field Operations Engineers, Software Developers and Help Desk Support. The consultant at Imperative knows our business inside out and understands our culture as if they were an employee at NDI themself, which is why Imperative have always filled roles assigned within 2 or 3 CVs only. I would recommend Imperative as highly effective, no nonsense to deal with and responsive to my requirements.

    General Manager, NDI Recognition Systems Ltd ANPR Solutions
  • I was introduced and engaged with Imperative for Senior Software Sales head which was critical to our business, I knew Imperative were highly effective on Technical and Management recruitment assignments as they supplied into these areas of our business already, I was blown away by the quality and accuracy of the candidate I was presented with and subsequently hired. The individual hired has gone on to produce healthy sales pipeline and is converting big ticket deals. I highly recommend Imperative as an intelligent recruitment company that really took the time to understand our market and as a result delivers every time.

  • We have worked with Imperative exclusively since 2008, they have successfully recruited a number Process and Technical Staff into our business including an IT Director. These guys have a great style of working and have an excellent reputation built on long term relationships, hence the reason I was recommended to Imperative when I was struggling to fill a role with a number of other recruitment consultants.

  • We have used Imperative to recruit an IT Manager and Support Analysts and a few contractors to assist on project work. We use Imperative because they specialise in ICT Infrastructure and understand our systems set up and company culture. They have always been quick to respond and have provided a good mix of quality candidates to decide up on, often leaving us in a dilemma as on occasions we could have hired them all.
