“Every aspect of the service was positive and Tommy gave me frequent updates.  Very friendly and made the recruitment process as stress free as it can be.  Great communication and was happy to help at every stage.  Thank you!

“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'”

“Callum Howard understood my strengths and requirements extremely well and I received excellent feedback and support throughout. He also chased up and regularly updated me regards queries after I had the job offer…..with me not having to remind or chase him up! I found Callum highly professional and I am grateful for the excellent service and the level of care I was provided by ARV Solutions”

“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”

“Never get rid of Sue Eustace!  Wouldn’t dream of going to anyone else to help me with my job search”

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

“You were outstandingly professional and helpful throughout the whole recruitment process!”

“Sue was absolutely fantastic, I couldn’t have asked for more.  She did a great job of getting me prepared and calming my interview nerves.

“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 Sue Eustace who was a pleasure to deal with and were very helpful.”

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


“Thank you so very much 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 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.


I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your support in looking for a new role.

In 35 years I have never needed to have to use a recruiter to find a new role, however, over the last 6 months, I have reached out to several companies.

The experience has been difficult and challenging, to say the least, the famous “we can definitely help” is way from the truth, applying for roles and never even getting a call nor an email back, you chasing for feedback and them not responding, it’s been far from what I would expect from professional recruiters.

Then I met you, this did restore faith, you delivered everything, professionally, thoroughly and engaging. Most importantly understanding someone’s needs when there down on their luck.

It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working alongside you in my search for that new role.

Rest assured if I am ever in need of another role, you and your company will be my first and only call.

Great work.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with ARV, this particular vacancy we were looking to fill was for a unique role and I believe we wouldn’t have filled the positions without Sue’s help.” National Sales Manager – Timber Frame 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

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
