Testimonials

  • I wanted to write today and thank you for all the help and support that you have given us with the recruitment of a new Chief Executive.

    Many thanks also for your help with all the screening interviews. Your service has been ‘second to none’.

    Andrew Nicholls, Deputy Chairman, Security Institute
  • J1 Consulting, and specifically Nick Everard, provided excellent service in finding our school Bursar.  The role is a fairly significant senior management position, and Nick was able to identify the culture and profile that we were seeking with integrity and professionalism (and at an affordable price!).  I highly recommend J1 for all your senior management recruitment.

  • J1 Consulting were extremely easy to deal with. Following a detailed meeting enabling them to gain a clear picture of the role we wished to fill and a clear picture of our business and culture, we received a considered list of potential candidates. Most importantly we received honest and straightforward information about the candidates and detailed feedback following interviews. As a result we were able to identify and recruit a candidate quickly and efficiently.

  • CIL Management Consultants recently worked with J1 to place an Analyst in our South West office. We’d never actually gone down the ex-military hiring route before so it was slightly unchartered territory for us, but the overall experience was hugely positive. J1 clearly put a lot of work into their own screening process as the candidate put forward was a great fit for us technically and culturally. As a small business with limited recruitment bandwidth, this was a real plus – we don’t have time to be sifting through thousands of CVs. During the process Nick was also an extremely valuable go-between, which made it easier for us to gauge transferrable skills and the appropriate entry level. We are keen to make J1 a regular part of our South West recruitment programme and look forward to many more successful hires!

  • J1 Consulting, and in particular Nick Everard, have provided superb support and advice from start to finish. Having applied for various roles with a number of agencies and organisations J1 Consulting quickly stood out as being the most professional and critically most aware of what a service background can offer a civilian organisation. Nick helped identify a suitable position, refined my CV and provided extremely useful notes to prepare for interview. Once with an offer Nick was able to provide the final polish before starting in the new role. Nick provided the complete service and I am extremely grateful to him for helping setting up the next chapter in my life.

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to express my heartfelt thanks for putting me forward for this position. As of late I’ve really enjoyed the people, the location and the impact it’s had on my work life balance, which has been fantastic to say the least: that’s mainly down to J1 setting the whole thing up.

    Ex Army Senior NCO
  • I just wanted to say thank you for all your help to date with my job search. I would certainly recommend J1 to other officers leaving the service. Compared to some of the other Forces recruitment agencies that I spoke to in the early stages of job hunting, I found that you were very willing to 'take a punt' on me based upon what you know about the many transferable skills forces personnel have, rather than matching a job description to a CV word for word.

    For all your help and assistance thank you and I wish you and J1 the best for the future. Yours is exactly the sort of organisation service leavers require.

  • From start to finish J1 provided an outstanding service.  Iain went to great lengths to determine my suitability for the role and was able to provide invaluable advice on how to handle the selection process.  Once offered the position he continued to guide me through the subsequent steps to ensure I achieved the best outcome.  I am extremely grateful.

  • Dear J1, I am just writing to say how impressed I was with your Candidates' Guide, which I received after registering last week. It was a fascinating read, packed with tips specific to Service-leavers - really useful and well-written. I must confess that I was surprised it was being provided for free. It is heartwarming to read the explanation for this, and great to see that the bond is still strong amongst ex-Service personnel who wish to pass on their knowledge. Thank you very much...

    ex-Army Captain
  • Both the literature and the assistance that J1 offered was extremely useful in the preparation for both interview and Day 1.
     
    I hope that all is well with you and I will most certainly be recommending your services to colleagues in the future.
