Alison and Greg at Talent Octopus matched my skills and background perfectly with my new job opportunity. They have excellent people skills, are trustworthy, very proficient, helpful and professional. They are clearly very passionate about their work, and have a good practice of keeping in regular contact. I would strongly recommend Talent Octopus.

Greg and Talent Octopus provided an excellent service from start to finish for me. Very professional and efficient.
Both Greg and Alison are very competent in what they do, and I think that anybody either looking for work or staff would not be disappointed by using their services. A+++

I would recommend Talent Octopus to anyone looking at a new career, Alison and Greg are very approachable and extremely diligent in their endeavours and I would highly recommend them to others.”

Simon S, Mid-Market Sales EMEA

Dealing with Alison was like dealing with an old friend. She offered an excellent service and I am now much happier after my move. I can not recommend Greg and Alison highly enough.

Paul C, Contracts Manager

I am so glad that Alison & Greg contacted me regarding the position I am now in. As well as speaking regularly to me over the phone, Alison took the time to meet with me in person to run through my employment history and skills and to make sure that they put me forward for the right role.

I have been kept in the loop from start to finish through the whole recruitment process, and Alison & Greg’s attention to detail and understanding of people has really helped me find my ideal position, and I am extremely grateful to them.

I would recommend Talent Octopus without hesitation to any professional looking to progress their career in a new role.

Chris D, Sales Executive

Alison of Talent Octopus has represented and assisted me in finding precisely the kind of role required to take my career to the next level. From our very first communication and interaction, I knew I was dealing with a rare professional who has a unique ability in discovering where a candidate is coming from, and what their next step could look like. In other words, as a best-in-class recruitment consultant, Alison is the best listener and advisor I have ever dealt with, full stop, helping me to relax, focus and make the right decision. It never escapes me how lucky I was to come into contact with Alison. For me as a candidate, she has set a new standard in professional recruitment consultancy.

Paul P, Professional Services Consultant EMEA

Alison is a person that makes someone feel human, more than a number or a product (something that in these times is really difficult). She gives the word “professional” a completely new meaning. She cares about what she does and you feel that she understands the whole process and where you are heading to. I would recommend her 100%.

Fernando F, Technical Account Manager EMEA

Professional, diligent, affable, amenable and one heck of a tough negotiator!

Alison is like finding a cold glass of water when you’ve been lost in a desert. In a world where all too many recruiters are just doing key word searches on a CV, barely listening to candidates and just pushing to “get to sale”, Alison not only takes the time to understand your skillset, but critically what drives and motivates you, what you value and who you are. Throughout my recruitment process I genuinely felt like Alison “had my back” as she would be push for all the important information, press for the right deal, listen to any worries I had and come up with practical answers, but perhaps most importantly made me feel like if at any time it wasn’t right then it was no problem to keep looking for something else and she would be there to help.

If I ever need to look for another position, or to recuit staff for my own team then I would unequivicably say that Alison will be my only call as I would be assured of the most successful outcome possible

Finding good people is difficult, finding a good recruiter is harder still. Alison is simply the best
