“Excellent service from Graham. His knowledge and understanding of the industry is second to none. From our very first conversation I had total confidence in his ability to secure the right opportunity for me.”

“Rob was superb during the entire process, he was professional, communicative and very helpful.”

“Graham and Callum were excellent from the first contact with each. I have for a number of years been approached and represented by all types of recruitment agencies.  In my opinion and from this experience, ARV have been flawless. Callum screened and explained everything very clearly to me. Graham was very knowledgeable about the client he was representing and is a credit to not only ARV but the ‘industry'”

Having dealt with many agencies over the years, ARV would be my first choice. Graham Brown certainly has a very professional attitude, yet an approachable manner, which gets results.

Matt was there every step of the way was friendly helpful and a real asset going into the interview. Would also like to add that I am a recruitment consultant with 10 years experience and Matt is one of the best that I have dealt with

“Hands down the best experience I have had with a recruitment agency. All others should take note, this is how you recruit. My feedback would be the same regardless of the decision. I now look forward to my new role. Thank you”

“Very supported and kept me fully informed throughout the whole process.”

“You’re a very good team! Just continue like this!”

“ARV Solutions have been exemplary in finding me a Supply Chain contract. In particular Sue Eustace demonstrated professionalism, efficiency, whilst being empathetic and polite”

The service provided by Graham was absolutely first class. I could not recommend ARV Solutions highly enough.

“Graham was professional and informative throughout the whole process. I never felt that I was not fully informed of the situation throughout. Clearly it is important to Graham that he places candidates in the right roles and takes the time to get to know them and it never feels like you are just the next placement.

I would have no hesitation working with Graham again either as an employer or candidate should the need ever arise.”

“You were really great. I would like to mention Phoebe Scott and Sue Eustace who were a pleasure to deal with and were very helpful.”

Graham is the ultimate professional. He has been fantastic throughout the process.

Matt was brilliant. Great personality and very easy to talk to. A credit to the business.

“Thank you so very much Phoebe for wishing me good luck on my first day. I deeply appreciate it and again thank you so much for supporting me and working had to get me this job, I am very grateful”

“I am well settled in my job and thoroughly enjoying myself. …… I wanted to say to you in person again how hugely grateful I am to all the hard work you put in throughout the whole process so thank you very much Sue, have recommended you to a number of friends already who are looking for work.”

“Fantastic service from start to finish. Thanks to Graham for attentive and professional approach.”


…thank you (Phoebe) and Sue very much for still looking out for me. Its been a long run since the redundancy in October and recruiters have been and gone but all this time you have still kept in touch to check in on me sometimes and I really appreciate it. I understand ARV must be really busy with too many clients in the situation I was in with what’s happening nowadays and I can imagine things are really hectic, but thank you very much for staying in contact and your constant updates.

You were brilliant.

I was very impressed how Callum handled whole process. He was very professional and helpful. The result of it; I just got a new job which absolutely suits me

Nothing but first class professionalism from start to finish. ARV Solutions and Graham in particular are a real credit to the industry.

Thank you very much, you have been such a big help throughout this whole process and I really appreciate all the effort you have put in on my behalf.

Graham has been fantastic – head and shoulders above his peers.

Service was very good. Hard to find a fault or anything

It was an absolute pleasure going through the process with Sue’s support. Sue was friendly, helpful and supportive while remaining professional through the whole procedure. I entered Pinewood’s recruitment process late but with Sue’s support, I still managed to get the role. Massively thanks for all the support

On ARVIEW: I think the initially 1st stage video process has worked well. Not only is it an opportunity to be a little more relaxed but it also gives you the opportunity to put across your personality and confirm your skills to an employer which I am sure comes across better. than if you were in a potential employers interview/meeting.

Graham was a great source of information and advice through out the process keeping me fully informed at all times. He was never pushy and provided a great sounding board through the process. I would recommend both Graham and ARV without question.

We have worked with ARV Solutions several times & they have consistently demonstrated a good understanding of our industry & also the needs of our business. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Managing Director, Modular Building Manufacturer

This was the first time I had dealt with ARV Solutions. Matt Davies was extremely easy to deal with throughout. He was professional and friendly and I was particularly pleased with the amount of time and effort he took to understand our business and exactly the type of candidate we were looking for. I would definitely recommend ARV Solutions and Matt to anyone; and in fact I have already instructed Matt on an additional vacancy.

HR Manager, Specialist Construction Products

The staff at ARV Solutions are aligned to our requirements and have a very good understanding of our needs which enables the correct type of candidate to be presented to us.

Design Office Manager, Specialist Steel Structures

As usual excellent service from Graham Brown.

Managing Director, Major Modular Manufacturer


We recently placed a Technical, an Estimator, and a Sales role with ARV Solutions and we have been delighted with the service and the two appointments we have made.  The dedicated consultants looking after our roles understood what we were looking for and sent us appropriate CV’s and we were able to see applicant interviews online. The calibre of candidates and their suitability for our roles was excellent and we were able to appoint in a very short space of time.  We will definitely come back to Sue, Rob, Matt and the team to help with future roles.

Liz, HR Manager

“I have been and will continue to be a big advocate of ARV Solutions. Great team, great approach. Keep it up! (Especially Sue!)

SK, Client

“I would strongly recommend ARV Solutions, I believe we work in partnership to achieve the best outcome for all involved in the process.”

MH, Client

“Graham & Sue took the time and trouble to understand exactly what sort of person we were looking for and although that sounds fundamental during a recruitment process too often consultants focus on quantity rather than quality. Constant two-way communication is vital and as always ARV Solutions excelled in giving quick concise feedback as well as appraising us continuously about potential candidates and the options moving forward. Undoubtedly, I would have no issue with recommending ARV to other businesses, unless of course I was looking to recruit at the same time! Your goal of longevity with clients and providing solutions to recruitment needs fits nicely with the way our business seeks to come to market and hopefully as we grow we can utilise ARV’s expertise again and again.”

Innovare Systems

“Paul has been communicative throughout the process, providing timely feedback to the candidate and to me. He has sourced relevant candidates who matched what we were looking for. A really good service and I look forward to working with him again.”

CB, Client

“It’s been really easy to work with the team at ARV Solutions – simple, straightforward and did everything that they said they would. Thank you.”

HG, Client

“The candidates I have had through have always been suitable and you have placed me in at least 2 positions so happy as both a candidate and an employer!”

MG, Client


“ARV Solutions fitted around our timescales and decision making process. They spent time trying to understand exactly what we were looking for in the candidate for this key role in our business. ARV seemed to also know the candidates which was really helpful as CVs can be misleading.

The process worked for us, there was no pressure which suited our business.”

SF, HR Manager

“Dear Graham, Thank you for your excellent work in helping us find the right calibre candidates to fill our new technical and sales positions.

I have found your company professional, speedy and very easy to work with, and certainly will use you again if the need arises.”
