David West recruited me for my current role and his part in the recruitment process was integral. He was a good listener while we discussed my career plans and made sure I was happy that this this would be the right move for me. The first thing that struck me was his industry knowledge. With other recruiters that I had spoken to, I had to really explain the mechanics of the industry I work in, however, David fully understands the industry he recruits for. He advised me before interviews with personal knowledge and fine detail that helped me no doubt impress the interviewer and communicated with me honestly and professionally throughout the process. If you're looking to make moves in the IT Education sector, then I can't recommend David highly enough.
Education Sales Consultant
I have been fortunate to have known David for some years now. David was the hands on recruitment team leader who introduced me to T-Mobile on contract in 2006. I like David's commitment and support for his contract team. As a consequence I have stayed in touch with David and seen his continued growth to setting up his own recruitment company. I would highly recommend David who has demonstrated a consistent and responsive approach to the corporate client and to me the contractor client.
Technical Project/Change Manager
David is a highly motivated, people focused, goal orientated recruiter who works well at all levels. This was demonstrated whilst working with BP on high profile projects. I would definitely work with David again.

Technical Project Manager
David provided outstanding service from our first communication. I would not hesitate to recommend his services and talent.
Technical Sales Support
I've known David for a number of years in his capacity as a recruitment executive and in fact have to thank him for providing me with a great opportunity when i was looking for a contract position. David is very focused, very professional and an individual in whom you can place a large amount of trust. In an industry characterised by varying degrees of competence, i am happy to say David is definitely in the higher upper quartile. He takes the trouble to really understand what a customer is looking for and also makes sure that everybody's best interests are fairly served. Without hesitation, I am happy to endorse David and his capabilities.
David is very dedicated to the task in hand, and keeps both the employer and the candidate fully updated through every step of the process. I can't recommend his personable skills, and the pleasure it is to work with him high enough.
Technical Sales/Business Development Manager
I've known David for many years since he introduced me to my client, BP. David has always kept in regular contact and has always been on hand to provide me with tips and solutions in both a client and a candidate capacity. David is a rare breed; relationship focused he takes the time to build strong professional and trusting relationships. I would recommend David to candidates and clients alike without hesitation.
David is very friendly and highly professional. I found that he was an excellent communicator, keeping me well informed about my job application. He showed great commitment and interest in helping me find the right job. I would highly recommend him.

I am often reluctant to try out new recruiters as I don't have a lot of good experiences with large agencies but David proved to be in a league of his own. He listened to how I wanted to work and kept to that format consistently. He made me feel I was the client and not the other way round as so many recruiters can. He listened to the recruitment briefs, asked insightful questions and got on with the job providing excellent candidates in an area that we really struggle to. David has a lovely soft manner and really does take the time to understand his client's needs and views relationships as long term and not quick wins. I cannot recommend David highly enough as someone who gives recruitment a good name and who really understands the technical and education market and the nuances of both.
I engaged David as a Recruitment Partner during my time at SITOC and I must say his professionalism and dedication to finding the right resources for us was second to none. David took the time to understand our needs and communicated highly effectively which I believe is why he was successful in helping me to build my technical sales team. I would highly recommend David to any organisation within the Education sector who is looking for a technical or sales recruitment partner.
David is a dedicated, knowledgeable recruitment professional, I know him as a former colleague and more recently as a service provider during my time with The Logic Group. Due to my awareness of his approach to managing clients and candidates I purposefully contacted him for his guidance and support to hire.
