Not only am I happy to recommend, but am absolutely confident, that should any business in our industry decide to use Redline Group as a recruitment partner, they would benefit from their passion for success, technical expertise, and professionalism every time, every day. I would be worried to share them with our competitors, but I guess we have no choice in recommending.

European HR Manager, Curtiss Wright

Our engineering team are frequently recruiting for a diverse set of disciplines, and we always see benefit in working closely with our recruiting partners to select the best candidates for these roles. 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.

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.

Redline are one of the few recruitment consultancies that actually work hard to find their clients the right people. They have consistently succeeded despite my exacting requirements. I must have recruited around 20 people using Redline. They are a tenacious and determined team who listens to their client’s needs and deliver. I would not hesitate in recommending Redline.

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.
