I have been in contact with both Co-Founders of Devonshire Hayes over the last couple of weeks about a contract Business Intelligence role in the City of London. I was the successful candidate for this position, but due to personal circumstances I could not take the opportunity offered - Devonshire Hayes did all they could to make the role work for both Client and myself - but it was not to be - However I really appreciate their efforts to try and make a win win solution. I hope to be able to engage with them in the future. They are the complete professional recruitment organisation.

For IT roles (Permanent, Fixed Term Contract and Contractor roles), I will always recommend Devonshire Hayes Recruitment Agency. Both Directors are open, honest and they say it as it is. They listen to the needs of their clients and have an understanding of the requirements of the role and the business and they supply a pool of candidates as a good match for the role and the business and ensure there is a cultural fit.

While looking for a role my experience with Devonshire Hayes has been nothing but exceptional. They have a very professional and friendly approach throughout the process and made sure that they helped me find the right role to what I am after. This is frequently missed by other agencies and you feel like just a number to help hit bonuses. I look forward to working with Devonshire Hayes in the future when any roles need placing within my team.

I have worked with Devonshire Hayes for many years and they remain, to this day, my go-to recruiters. They have a great mixture of market and candidate knowledge and no request is ever too big! They have provided me with many permanent and contract hires, most of which have remained for extended periods of time. They also supported me through the challenges of IR35, which I am extremely grateful for. I would recommend them without hesitation and have done so when our clients have asked for introductions.

Devonshire Hayes is a new age, game changing company who go about recruitment in a remarkably refreshing way. They believe in innovative, intelligent methods of sourcing, as opposed to the hard selling approach which is terribly old fashioned. They source the best candidates through every avenue possible, from meet-ups and events, to social media and online networking. This approach has yielded me to have the best technical professionals the sector has to offer, and has given Devonshire Hayes a name for impeccable delivery.

I’ve worked with Devonshire Hayes now for around 6 years whilst working at two very different organisations and they have always been my go-to for IT and tech roles. They both took the time to get to know me well, understanding how I like to work and communicate and have always been excellent at filling roles for me. Devonshire Hayes really take the time to really understand your requirement and they go out there and find great candidates every single time! They’re great guys who really know there stuff and I know I’ll be working with them for many years to come.

It's rare to find an Agency who really spends time with his clients, but Devonshire Hayes does just that and he ensures that you are the best fit for the position and vice versa. They understands that you are not just a CV but so much more. One of the best experiences I have had (and will continue to have) when using agents. I cannot recommend them enough, especially if you are looking for something a little niche.
