What our customers say…

“We have been working with Steve Ball Recruitment for just over 2 years and from our initial contact we have been impressed by the professionalism, discretion and honesty shown by Steve and his team.

All too often we find recruitment agencies over promise and under deliver. This is not the case with Steve and he has exceeded our expectations with each role he has taken on for us, providing staff in multiple disciplines both in our Head office and the more difficult remote locations such as Penzance.

Steve will not accept a role unless he believes he can find us the right person, something which we appreciate as it avoids us needlessly wasting time. He has worked on a number of high profile roles and always maintains the utmost confidentiality.

We have been impressed at how quickly he developed an understanding of our culture and would not hesitate to recommend him to others looking for a reliable, efficient service combined with an ability to understand and meet your requirements.”

“We started to utilise Steve Ball Recruitment Ltd for our talent search back in May 2016 with very little hope that they were different to other recruiters. We were very wrong. After giving Paul a brief on ourselves and our requirements it very quickly became apparent that they were different.  They understood us, our needs and the type of candidates we wanted to attract.

During this period they have supplied us with 2 Managers and 2 Assistant Mangers and the measure of their success for us is that all four are now thriving within our business.”

“From the initial meeting to a successful appointment, Steve made the process very easy and relaxed but with a very professional approach. He understood the brief very clearly and delivered appropriate guidance where required. The right candidates were put forward and a composed follow up resulted in what has proved to be a great candidate now successfully working with us. Job well done!”

“As a senior manager within a large multi-disciplinary consultancy practice I require excellence from my staff, in order that we can fulfil the very high expectations of our clients.

I can wholeheartedly say that over the past 14 months ‘Steve Ball Recruitment’ (SBR), have seamlessly played a significant role in helping us exceed those expectations, by providing excellent, committed, focused and cost effective staff across various professions and at varying skill levels.

Steve and his staff’s personal work ethic is extremely high which proffers them to time to regularly meet with client’s on a 1:1 basis, which in turn allows SBR to be very pro-active in reacting very efficiently to short notice requests, without any falling in standards.

In particular Steve Ball possesses unique, affable and personable skills in very quickly being able to assess a client’s distinct staffing requirements and efficiently fitting bespoke staff to meet these needs.

SBR’s specific knowledge of the broad base construction sector is very impressive, likewise the level to which they’re connected.

In my experience SBR’s requirements of the staff within their portfolio is very demanding, this must give them the confidence that; in an extremely dynamic industry, they will very very rarely let a client down.

I have on a number of occasions recommended to individuals that the best next rung on the career ladder would be to consult SBR. In the feedback I’ve had so far, they have not been disappointed.

I consider SBR to be the ‘go to guys’ in terms of value for money staff recruitment and have recommended them multiple times and will continue to do so in to the future”.
