M.R Graduate Quantity Surveyor / Leading Construction Manager, London  

"As a graduate looking for a new career within the construction sector, mjhr was able to offer me an invaluable inroad with one of the main players in the industry. I was quickly offered an interview with a company rated as one of the top 100 companies to work for in the Sunday Times’ rankings. 

The whole service provided by mjhr was extremely professional and, in a marketplace seemingly over populated with recruitment consultants, it was refreshing to deal with a consultancy that truly understood the sector in which it specialized. It was able to back this up with its key relationships and contacts with the leading players in the marketplace."

"As a Malaysian looking to further my career in the United Kingdom, my work permit is always going to be an issue. However, mjhr not only made it look easy but also landed me an important role in a reputable Cost Consultancy. The service provided by mjhr is immaculate and extremely professional in comparison to many big players in the recruitment market. I will certainly be recommending them to other candidates and particularly to my Malaysian counterparts!! "

N.N Assistant Cost Manager / Top 10 PQS company 

"I was a South African graduate looking for a Permanent opportunity in London. At the time I had no valid work permit so the prospect of finding & securing employment was a little daunting as previously I had suffered at the hands of another recruitment agency. However after I had applied for further information on an mjhr opportunity I was very pleased to receive a prompt call back.

They interviewed me pretty much immediately and two days later I had the choice of four interviews to attend, all of which I was well briefed for. Consequently, I was offered a position with a top ten consultancy within a week, which needless to say, came as a very welcome surprise. mjhr was able to manage the entire process from start to finish with fantastic efficiency.

Having being offered the role, I returned to South Africa to obtain the necessary visas and commenced employment with my new employer five weeks later. I would strongly recommend mjhr to any South African graduate looking to work in London. "

"mjhr provided a polite, efficient and discrete service that focused on my pre-requisite work ambitions including types of work, company, location, appointment level and future prospects, as well as anticipated salary. At my interview, it was very noticeable that they had a rapport with their clients. This meant that they were able to guide me, a professional candidate at a particular career stage, and marry my experiences with a particular client’s needs, and therefore eliminate any inappropriate introductions or interviews. Shortly after my meeting, mjhr communicated that a particular position  was convenient for me. Furthermore, when it came to the offer stage, mjhr offered sound career advice, and since I accepted, has consistently delivered aftercare to make sure that I was settling in well with my new employer.

I would have no hesitation in recommending that mature, experienced professionals should consider mjhr‘s recruitment services".

"mjhr are a truly professional company of head hunters.  I found mjhr absolutely reliable.  They always did what they said they would do; they would do it when they said he would and then make sure that they called me regularly so that I knew they’d done it!

mjhr went further than any other head hunter or agency has ever done for me before, to find me exactly the position I was looking for (and believe me I made it as hard as I could for them with my criteria). 

For me the most important aspect for a candidate registering with a recruitment agency, is for the candidate to be able to rely on the agency's complete discretion, thereby ensuring confidentiality is never compromised.  This is something with which I have complete confidence in mjhr and would recommend them unreservedly to anyone of my friends considering a job move".

W.O Managing Quantity Surveyor / Multi-disciplinary practice, North London

"I was a mature candidate working in Birmingham and looking to move back into the London job market. Having worked for a long time in a large international consultancy, I decided that I wanted to work for a smaller, more local firm for a change and to suit family commitments. The position advertised was for a Managing QS in a multi-disciplinary firm in North London. As I had not gone through an agent before, I was a little sceptical at first, however I soon found that it was an advantage to have someone like mjhr handling my application. When I met my consultant for initial assessment, I was surprised by how professional and thorough he was. mjhr’s impartial guidance throughout the application and interview process was invaluable, ensuring that my expectations and those of the company's were as compatible as possible. My consultant also encouraged me in areas where I had some self-doubt about my experience to fulfil the role. After I was successful at interview and started in the new job, mjhr did not just disappear from the scene; my consultant has kept in regular contact with me to make sure things are going okay. Again this is something that I had not been expecting and I am sure many other agents would not have bothered to do this".

H.F Assistant Project Manager / National multi-disciplinary consultancy, London

"mjhr contacted me after spotting my CV on the internet. We met promptly and discussed my requirements and within days, mjhr had come back to me with half a dozen very high profile companies that they had selected to submit my CV to.  With my agreement, my CV was sent across and 48 hours later, one of those companies offered to interview me.  mjhr prepared me a very in-depth document about my interviewer and the company and off I went!  Suffice to say I got the job which has offered some fantastic opportunities for me. mjhr kept in fortnightly contact with me for the first 4-6 weeks which I felt was very professional of them and not how I had typically been treated by other agencies.  I am very grateful to mjhr for all their help and support".

S.S Assistant Project Manager / Prestigious Project Management Consultancy, London

"I was a graduate without a work permit. I was looking for a job with a Project Management firm and was referred to mjhr by a classmate. I gave mjhr a call on Thursday and was told to send my CV in. The following day we chatted about restructuring my CV, my qualifications and experience. The following Monday we met at the office and on the Friday that same week, I had an interview with a Project Management firm.

I was impressed with the speed and the range of options I was given, as there were two other possible firms ready for interviews if the first one was not right for me. mjhr advised me on interviews and gave me a brief history of the company.

I would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for their next career opportunity to contact mjhr as their first move. It is a delightful and refreshing surprise to have encountered a consultant who is different from the norm.

Well done mjhr and thanks"!

M.E Project Manager / Prestigious Commercial Property Consultancy, London

"The decision to relocate to London was made when circumstances at a regional practice changed. Knowing nothing of the market or indeed my own sale-ability I engaged the services of mjhr who had the contacts in place to 'open the doors' for me. Absolute discretion and a very detailed understanding of my own requirements meant no time was wasted speaking to unsuitable companies. The interviews were arranged to suit me and a useful briefing enabled good performances which resulted in offers from everyone of them.  mjhr negotiated my position so the offers which came through exceeded expectations. I relocated successfully within my own timeframe to one of London's elite consultancy firms.  I have not looked back as my own portfolio of work has grown from 2 million to over one hundred million in 6 months!

In sum, I shall have no hesitation in recommending them to other industry contacts including clients"!! 

B.B Project Manager / National Multi-Disciplinary Consultancy, London

"My previous employer was a leading PQS practice in Manchester and whilst I was relatively happy in that role, I was seeking the ‘right’ move up to London to further my career. An in-house relocation wasn’t feasible so I decided to register with a few recruitment agencies to test the market. And mjhr simply stood out a mile from the rest.  I wasn’t willing to just take the first job I was offered and mjhr understood that and tailored my move to my exact requirements. I was fully briefed on every potential role and when I found a position, it was everything I’d hoped for. I thank mjhr for all their support and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to any other Project Managers".

C.J Project Manager / Leading PQS company, London.

"Having decided to relocate to London, there was a definite need to obtain the advice and guidance of a consultant who not only had the credentials to find challenging roles, but who also had an in-depth knowledge of the specific London recruitment market.

mjhr wasted no time in sourcing enviable positions within my chosen range of employers; efficiently negotiating interviews and effectively driving forward my requirements to potential employers.

At all times, mjhr acted as my counsel with commitment and genuine concern towards achieving my goals. Despite the no doubt numerous other clients on their books, I was made to feel as though my needs were being given the utmost priority, with communication and advice being on-hand as and when I required it.

Within weeks, I was accepting a role that, 12 months on, continues to reward me – a situation that owes much to the involvement of mjhr".

N.C Project Manager / Leading London Project Management Consultancy, London  

"I have had a long standing relationship with mjhr. As a recruitment agency in the PM sector they have been extremely supportive towards my career and their credibility within the marketplace remains strong not just with me but with friends and colleagues too. They have extensive contacts within the world of Project and Cost Management which ensures a wide variety of roles and work places are at their fingertips. mjhr‘s complete discretion and excellent telephone manner ensure a smooth and stress-free transition from interviewing and feedback, to starting your new job and making certain that you are satisfied with the move. I cannot recommend them highly enough".

J.F Senior Project Manager / Established PQS practice, London 

"Having resigned from my previous employer earlier this year, I contacted numerous agencies in search of a new position. As a mature candidate I recognised this would not be a simple task. mjhr contacted me immediately, we met the following day and they managed to set up and secure a position for me as a Senior Project Manager on a very prestigious office development in the city. mjhr worked valiantly in this respect, continually following up my new employer and myself after my two interviews. My consultant has been in close contact with me since I started in my new job to ensure that I was settled in the new role and I cannot thank him enough for his efforts in promoting me on my behalf. It is very gratifying to know that a recruitment consultancy like mjhr exists. Their enthusiasm and dedication is refreshing to say the least, unlike many other recruitment consultants who never respond".

"mjhr was able to quickly recommend a shortlist of employers who were most appropriate to satisfy my current career requirements and also provide fulfillment for the future. Demonstrating a very professional approach, mjhr had a clear understanding of the industry and that of the technical recruitment market".

V.G Cost Manager, Top 10 Global Construction Consultancy, London.

"I’m a Malaysian candidate, a few months ago when I was hunting for an opportunity to join a top QS consultant firm. Marcus from mjhr was introduced to me by a good friend whom understood Marcus to be an excellent and reliable recruitment representative specializing in the construction sector. mjhr were very encouraging and demonstrated a genuine effort in assisting me to secure prompt interviews with the top QS consultant firms. They were also able to pin-point specific firms that met my preference, this illustrated that mjhr has established itself with a good network of top clients.

Given mjhr’s commitment, capabilities and their excellent client network, I have no hesitation in recommending mjhr to any QS candidate who is looking forward to working in the UK".
