We have been very pleased to work with the Redline Group over the numerous years as preferred partners as they listen to what we are looking for in candidates, understand the competencies and they focus on sending us quality candidates. On odd occasions when someone is not quite the right fit, they take the feedback and work to get the closest fit. They are also very helpful during the final stages of negotiation and when our candidates join, they also describe an excellent candidate experience working with Redline.

We have worked with Redline for many years, as a Preferred Supplier.  BOC often has a demanding recruitment schedule in terms of ever-changing requirements and tight deadlines, Redline keeps pace and manages our expectations well.  They have worked hard to build good working relationships across the business to ensure they understand it fully.  We have always found their staff helpful and honest, and confident enough in our relationship to challenge us in a positive way when they feel it is appropriate.

Human Resources Manager, BOC

I have worked with Redline on a regular basis over the years on multiple vacancies. They know the electronic arena, which is a great asset to assess candidates. Their consultants invest lots of time to understand the Company as well as the roles and are therefore capable of articulating the benefits and features to candidates. Likewise, they spend a considerable amount of time interviewing candidates to assess their capabilities and understand if there is a match. Their integrity is remarkable. I enjoy working with them and appreciate greatly the support.

Top-notch and very professional team.

Technical Director, Petards

We have always found Redline Group’s knowledge of our market segment has consistently resulted in a selection of candidates who closely match the profile we have given. The positions we hire are technically demanding and it is often difficult from the initial resume to have a real understanding of the degree of expertise. Redline help supplement this ensuring we have a timely and consistent approach to hiring.
