"I have nothing but good things to say about BTB. Simply one of the best

Recruiters out there".

Don't just take it from us

  • ​"Beyond the Book consistently provide an excellent and highly personal service.  I've worked with BTB for many years now; both as a client and a candidate and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. Unlike other recruiters, they understand my industry which is a real point of difference - I've found myself explaining my role and the industry to so many other recruiters in the past which is incredibly frustrating."

  • BTB were very personable, committed and tenacious at finding the right person for us. Throughout the process, Beyond The Book felt like a genuine partner.

  • Anna and her team don't just look at the job vacancy, but take the time to get to know you and your business so that they can gauge who is going to fit with your culture, your team, and your business. Friendly, engaging, dedicated and thorough we have had some of our best and longest-serving employees through Beyond the Book. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

  • I have been using Beyond the Book for at least the last 8 years for supplying freelance resource and providing candidates for permanent positions and have always found every member of the team to be super helpful and professional. Finding freelancers at the last minute is often an impossible task but having BTB at the end of the phone is a huge weight off my mind as more often than not, they can find me options at the last minute. Finding candidates for permanent positions takes a lot more care and skill. Put simply... my entire studio of 5 designers is staffed by people sourced via BTB... that kinda says it all in my opinion.

  • Over the past year, Beyond The Book have taken a genuine interest in our team; getting to know who we are and what we need to grow our business. Because of their care and expertise, they have found us excellent candidates who complement our culture and increase our diverse talent.

  • ​"The Beyond the Book team always go above and beyond, and work hard to ensure you get the right role. These guys have always been my first port of call when looking for freelance or roles – or when recruiting myself. Top team! Lovely people."

  • ​"Fantastic service from start to finish. Friendly, efficient and made what is normally a stressful experience a refreshingly easy one. Would recommend BTB for anyone looking for a new role, especially in the creative industries."

  • "​When I decided to take the plunge into the world of freelancing, BTB were there to give guidance and advice. Team BTB are ridiculously knowledgeable in their recruitment field, and are always striving to ensure they find the 'right' placement for you. Most importantly, they care about you, the freelancer. So, if you are reading this review thinking "should I, shouldn't I?", YES, YOU SHOULD!"

  • ​“Truly one of the best recruitment experiences I have ever had.  The whole team is extremely supportive, and they really get to know your situation and feeling behind your job move to put your forward for the right roles.  The most important thing for me when choosing a recruiter to represent you is not feeling 'like another CV' or a number. Beyond the book have this nailed 100% and it's a completely natural and genuine attitude they all have. Can't recommend enough - thanks for your support BTB!”

  • "There are agents, and there are real agents. BTB worked tirelessly to find the right position for me, recognising both my requirements and that of the agency to ensure a happy fit, they were encouraging, insightful and gave me what was clearly well-researched background information. They followed up every stage of the process and even met me some time after my successful placement for a meeting to make sure all was well. Unlike many agents I've encountered, they don't wait for things to drop into their lap; they come highly recommended."
