Denholm Client Experience

"At AG Barr we are very clear about what an individual must have to be successful within our business.
The team at Denholm have become firm recruitment partners by doing two things brilliantly.
They engage with us in a consistent and appropriate manner, focusing on what's required and being genuinely interested in our business.  
And they continue to challenge themselves to deliver talented people, this determination to meet our needs has made a real difference to the quality within our Marketing department."
HR Business Partner, AG Barr

Denholm Candidate Experience

"From the first meeting I had with Denholm I felt that I was in extremely good hands. At the same time I had met with another recruitment agency to help me with my search but very quickly realised that Denholm's level of professionalism, expertise and personal approach made me feel like I had come to the right place.
Most importantly I felt I could trust the team to do the best for me and go about the process in the right way, I have had the opposite experience with other recruitment agencies in the past!
I was massively impressed by the service I received from Denholm and I will certainly be recommending them to anyone looking to progress their marketing career in Scotland.
