  1. I’ve known Jon now for 8 years or so and he is my go-to for hiring into my teams. He does a thorough job on vetting all potential candidates to send over and sends only who he knows will be of interest which saves valuable time. He’s a pleasure to work with and a genuine down to earth lovely guy.

    On a candidate side Jon has also recently placed me at a new role. He took the time to find something which actually suited me and helped me to establish what I actually want out of my next role. Thanks Jon for your time and patience.

  2. Ruvimbo – Client and Placed candidate

    Met Jon when I wasn’t sure of my career in finance anymore. He took time to listen to my needs and placed me in the right company which is what I needed at that time. It is rare to meet recruiters that have the candidate’s best interest so I will highly recommend this agency. I am happy in my career in finance and wouldn’t be where I am have I not met Jon when I did.

  3. Jon is one of the best recruiters I’ve come across. Before I spoke with Jon I had been through a few different recruitment companies and they all had ideas of what they wanted me to do and didn’t take into consideration the type of job I wanted to steer away from and didn’t seem to really care. Jon was totally different and didn’t suggest jobs that he knew I wouldn’t want to do! When I got my first phone interview he called me just before to give me tips and wish me luck and he also called right after to see how it went. When I had my two face to face interviews for the same job Jon did the same as before and was very supportive throughout the whole process and helping me out every step of the way. You can tell Jon really cares that he finds the right job for you he’s even emailed me a few times to see how I’m getting on and I’ve never had that from a recruitment company before so that’s great! I would highly recommend Tony Alan recruitment and especially Jon!

  4. ‘I have used Tony Alan recruitment for approximately two years. To date I have received an excellent level of service and they have provided me with several high quality candidates both at day rates and on fixed term contracts. They have taken time to listen and understand my requirements and always provide me with carefully selected and screened candidates. I would be happy to recommend them to any employer’.

  5. I have known Jon for nearly 8 years and in that time, he has helped me secure two amazing jobs. I really do like his approach, he is very open with the positions that are available at the time, the market, his clients and what to expect. He went in depth with me regarding interview preparation and was always available if I needed to check something. I could not recommend Jon highly enough to other finance professionals.

  6. “I can wholeheartedly recommend Jon Ralfe at Tony Alan Recruitment.

    Jon is always a pleasure to deal with and I’m comfortable that he has a good understanding of the type of candidate I’m looking for, both in terms of skill set and personality. Rather than bombard me with unsuitable CV’s and hoping that one will stick I am confident that each prospect has a clear understanding of the vacancy and is well suited to the business before being put forward for the role. Using Tony Alan Recruitment made the job of replacing a key member of staff much easier than previous experiences.”

  7. Tim – Placed Candidate:

    Jon has great knowledge of his industry in the finance recruitment sector and was very helpful in my recent job search.

    He successfully placed me in an excellent position with one of his clients which had everything I was looking for. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for those looking for help with taking their next step in their finance career.

  8. Operations Director :

    We recently engaged with Tony Alan to recruit within our Accounts department. Jon understood the skillsets we required but also the importance of shortlisting candidates who fit into our company culture and ethos. He managed to find several candidates who achieved this balance and successfully placed the new member of our team. Throughout the process we were supported with clear communication; we were informed of all developments without being harassed as has happened with other companies. I’d happily recommend Jon and have done several times subsequently

  9. HR/ Finance Manager:

    Dealing with Jon is so easy. He is approachable, professional, honest and knows what he is talking about. Jon understands the industry and the people. I would highly recommend Jon to employers and candidates alike

  10. Tina Iannuzzi is a credit to your company, she is very professional and thorough, soothing and reassuring, an absolute pleasure to deal with, please look after her carefully, as she certainly deserves it.

  11. “Tina attended our offices to help with the recruitment of an Accounts Assistant. She was well prepared for our meeting and had a broad range of candidates with varying degrees of experience and skills. Talking to Tina about our role enabled her to quickly identify those candidates whom she felt would be most suitable for our requirements. Tina is an excellent communicator. She listens to the client’s needs and will only make recommendations of candidates she feels have a realistic chance of being successful in a position. She is very much a “people person” and, as such, is ideally suited as a Recruitment Consultant”

  12. I would just like to say that Tina from Tony Alan Recruitment has been an absolute joy to know and work with. She found me and she found me a job (my first in England), and for that I will be forever grateful. Her professionalism and commitment is remarkable and her friendliness and ability to make you feel comfortable is truly special. I cannot recommend Tina enough!

  13. Jon is different to all of the big agencies, he took the time on a Sunday Morning to meet with me discuss the role and answer any questions that I had. I felt like I was treated as an individual and knew that my cv was only going to go to a company that would suit me, not simply on a mail list to every company in the south of England. The whole process was easy and I would not hesitate to recommend him in your search for a new job

  14. “Tina represented Tony Alan Recruitment when meeting with me to discuss my company’s PSL. It was due to Tina’s great understanding of my company’s needs and insight into the current labour market that I decided to use Tony Alan. I find Tina to be very thorough and precise with her work; she also takes great pride in what she does and delivers results in a very professional manner”

  15. Tina was very friendly and highly professional at the same time. She kept me up to date of all developments all the time, so I knew I was taken good care of.
    I would definitely use Tony Alan again.

  16. Jon took the time to really get to know me, my strengths and what I was looking for in a job. He matched it perfectly and offered exceptional advice and encouragement throughout the process, at any time of day. He is passionate and committed to helping people find their next career move. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.

  17. “I decided to try out Tony Alan Recruitment as an alternative to my usual agencies. I was impressed how Tina took the time to understand my requirements and that I was only sent the CVs of suitable candidates who had been spoken to about the role and wanted to be put forward. Tina’s approach was thorough and conscientious, and I would certainly use Tony Alan again.”

  18. “Having dealt with many agencies over the years, during this and my last job, I must say it has been an absolute breath of fresh air to have found Jon so efficient, highly professional, informative, helpful and courteous through the process of finding a new job. I have no hesitation in recommending his service to other businesses and candidates.”

  19. “Tina was very professional but warm and personable at the same time, and helped make the whole recruitment process an enjoyable process”

  20. “I have been in regular contact with Jon since 2010 to recruit the majority of positions within our rapidly growing Finance Department.
    Jon is always the first person I turn to when a position becomes available. He has always made a constant effort to understand not only the organisational requirements but also my preferences. We have a rule of the ‘5 best CV’s’ and this is what Jon provides. He has never once flooded by inbox with irrelevant candidates, which often happens with other recruiters.
    He really does go the extra mile to make the process for me as painless as possible and contacts me as little or as much as I require, which works well for me.
    I often recommend Jon to others as I trust that he will provide the consistent levels of high service that we have received for the last 2 years.”

  21. “Jon at Tony Alan Recruitment made getting a new job much easier than I expected it to be, the whole process was extremely quick from start to finish. He gave me helpful interview advice which I think was key to being offered the job, and seemed to genuinely care that I did the right thing for me. He was in communication with me regularly, so I knew what was going on at all times, and was always friendly and pleasant to talk to.”

  22. “Jon was very friendly and efficient to deal with. He took the time to understand the culture of the business and the specific job needs. We had the need to fill a vacancy at very short notice and within a few hours we had the CV of a candidate who was ideal for the position and started with us 2 days later. I will certainly use Jon in the future if any other vacancies arise”

  23. I have been well looked after by Tina at Tony Alan Recruitment. She helped me to get a temporary assignment and kept me well informed of all developments. I felt that she genuinely wanted to help me.
