Testimonials

Marcus first reached out to me in August 2021 and since then we’ve built a business relationship purely based on trust, engagement, and transparency. He is not only thorough but also easy to work with and always willing to take the time to discuss my concerns and respond to questions. He demonstrated to remain fully functional by adapting to changing circumstances and handle all conflicts using his assertive communication skills. He has always made a detailed inventory on preferences/wishes and rendered extra services when needed.

Senior Talent Acquisition, Consultancy, London

When I was thinking about changing roles Kieran actually listened and took on board how I wished to progress my career. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and came back to me with a role which was perfect for me and I will be happily starting soon. Kieran is without a doubt the best recruiter I have dealt with over the years.

Salesforce Consultant, Salesforce Consultancy, London

I got my first Salesforce Commerce Cloud B2C (Demandware) consultant contract because of Vince. Vince found and approached me on LinkedIn, within a week, he managed to setup everything for me from interviews, feedback + offer from the client and final contract.

He’s proactive, by checking with you and making sure you’re happy with your project. Asking ahead for extensions for you. Everything said, I am quite happy to recommend Vince for the recruitment work he does on Salesforce Commence Cloud B2C (Demandware) Projects. He has a good network of SFCC clients/ candidates and understanding of the market.

SFCC Developer, Digital Agency, Romania

Worked with Marcus on numerous roles we needed filling. Marcus really went out his way to learn about our business and business needs to find us tailor fit candidates. He builds great report with clients and candidates and made every part of the process as seamless as possible. Highly recommend working with him.

Business Systems Manager, Security, London

Vince has been so generous and thoughtful in supporting The Childhood Trust – he oversaw all aspects of the recruitment of a key volunteer salesforce administrator to help us to implement Salesforce’s NPSP function. We couldn’t be more delighted with the quality of the candidates that Vince secured for us and his commitment to the whole process. Thank you Vince, it was a huge pleasure to work with you.

Director, Non-Profit, London

Vince and I have worked together many times over the last few years, he’s placed me and my colleagues of our small consultancy in many FinancialForce roles.

I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough; he finds roles and people I never knew existed. He always answers his phone, he gives everything 100% and he always checks on how you are doing. Unlike other recruiters I have dealt with before Vince goes the extra mile to not only make sure the client is happy with the placement, but that the placement is also happy with the client. Sounds simple – but very few people manage to hit that sweet spot. I can safely say Vince is and always will be my number 1 recruiter!

Founder, FinancialForce Consultancy, UK

For someone moving from several years of permanent roles into contracting, the ambiguity of the process can be little unsettling. I am glad that I came across Pete @ Areti who guided me step by step through the entire process and made everything a lot easier than it actually is. I found Pete to be very professional – acting at all times in best interest of both employer and employee. Now one week into the role, I believe Pete has found a good match for both the company and myself. I can’t recommend him enough and will welcome opportunity to work with him again – he’ll definitely be one of the first person I’ll contact when looking for new roles.

Working with Pete and the team has been an absolute pleasure. They have been extremely professional and efficient when helping us to hire for both permanent and contract staff. We would highly recommend them to anyone with any upcoming recruitment needs.

Chief Operating Officer
IT Services Company

Luke is an exceptional recruiter who goes above and beyond for his customers. I was at the final interview stage for two other positions and wasn’t actively looking to set up any more interviews. Luke persuaded me to interview at a Fintech start-up that is growing, and the rest is history. Thank you, Luke.”

Senior Software Developer, Fintech Start Up, London

“Luke was awesome from start to finish. The preparation he gave me throughout the interview process was the difference in me securing my dream job. In all the years I have never bought a recruiter a present but felt Luke had done such a good job I needed to.”

Head of Security Position/Telco, London

“Areti was amazing in finding me my next contract position that was perfect for my availability and skillset. It was a pleasure dealing with Luke and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for there their next contract assignment.”

Cloud Architect , Fintech Start Up, Thames Valley

“I could sum up my experience with Pete at Areti Group in one sentence: Professional, personal, and hassle free. From first contact with Pete, he was one of them people that you knew understood the market and the technical skills he was hiring for. Something that is becoming ever rarer now in the IT sector. He was not only knowledgeable but very personable, taking a genuine interest in myself.

An interview was arranged for the next day after our first call. An offer was made the same day and all paperwork was completed within 24 hours. All hassle free I would add. Topping this off with a visit for lunch on my 2nd week in the role. 

I would not hesitate to work with Pete again for further roles or using Areti to fill open positions for teams I manage.

“I have known & had the pleasure of working with Luke over the last month. He has complete dedication to the cause & limitless energy. We are now working exclusively with him and feel very confident he will deliver on all the current positions we have given him.”

Head of Talent, Fintech, London

“Getting the perfect job is not an easy thing, Luke has been a great asset in putting me forward for several posts that suit my expertise and skills. I have found him to be very reliable and knowledgeable in his field. I would recommend Luke to any of my colleagues and friends.”

Software Development Manager, London

Pete Kelly has been fantastic in terms of his engagement, support, prompt communication and solving issues with regards to my job application process. In addition, having secured my job he has made contact to see how I am finding the new role, which was nice of him to do so.

All in all, very positive experience with Pete Kelly. Will contact him again if I ever move.

Candidate

“I have worked with Peter for around 5 years. During that time I have used his services at several organisations, recruiting information and cyber security professionals into the teams I was leading. Peter’s understanding of the security industry made engagement easier than it might have been. He was able to understand the requirements of each role and how it works both as part of the wider team and as a stand-alone function. Peter also took the time to understand me, both as a professional and as a person, making the relationship an easy one to maintain. This is the reason I have contacted him in each role I have had as a recruiting manager, and most recently in my role as CISO for Three UK.
