What our Candidates Say
Head of Commercial Finance
"My experience with Vitae was one of pure professionalism, but with a very personal feel about it. Unlike other agencies Vitae are very specific as to which CV’s they send to clients and as such you are not constantly called with details of jobs that you are not really suitable for. Consultants are friendly and helpful and provide background and financial information together with interview techniques relative to the role in question. As Vitae have a very close relationship with their clients they are able to give you a real insight into the company and what to expect. Their approach is honest, reassuring and refreshing”.
“I had a great experience with Vitae. Right from the beginning I found the consulting friendly, professional and efficient. My consultant made a real effort to get to know me in order to source the right type of company and position to suit. I also liked the membership system: once selected, I felt like a valued Member and that every effort was being made to find relevant opportunities and provide constant updates”.
Head of Finance
“Vitae introduced themselves as offering something different. Despite their pledge, I still expected the usual approach but what was actually delivered was surprisingly refreshing: an attempt to totally understand my needs; intelligent questioning as opposed to cheesy sales jargon; and helpful consultative market guidance.”
Senior Financial Accountant
“I first met with Vitae when searching for a new job after being given notice of redundancy. I was delighted with the service they provided. They were very quick to match me up with suitable opportunities and their approach to interview preparation was extremely thorough and their advice was very useful. During the process Vitae were great at obtaining valuable feedback and quick at delivering it and it was this that really helped me reach my goal of finding a new job. I would not hesitate to contact Vitae again when considering my next career move and I would highly recommend others to contact him”.
Senior Finance Business Partner - Product & Strategy
“The consultants I dealt with at Vitae were consummate professionals and not your archetypal finance recruiters. I've experienced honesty and transparency with Vitae who genuinely looked after my interests”.
Group FP&A Manager
“Vitae provided a fantastic service when I was seeking a career move. My Consultant was very professional and knowledgeable. I was particularly impressed with how he assisted with interview preparation and the clear channels of communication. Also, using Skype as an interview tool showed great flexibility whilst I was working abroad”.
“My Vitae Consultant was one of the best consultants I have ever worked with during my career. He was entirely professional and his business behaviour is always on a top level. Moreover he is honest and always transparent and especially in my case he looked after my commercial interests. All in all I would definitely recommend Vitae to everybody looking for a new role”
“Vitae demonstrated a totally professional, trustworthy and committed service throughout the whole recruitment process on behalf of my new employer and myself. A refreshingly honest and personable recruitment entity”.
Senior Commercial Finance Manager
“Having worked with numerous consultants throughout my career, I am happy to say that my Vitae contact was one of the best. The overall service which they offered was second to none. My Consultant’s excellent personal manner and genuine persona ensured that they were very attentive to my individual needs. They had the ability to ensure that conversations were always useful; naturally putting Vitae one step ahead of other consultancies. The approach was refreshingly open and honest, something which feeds into the work that they undertake. Perhaps their greatest strength is that they are always truthful. Whilst never blunt or rude, they will always inform you of the exact position and how best to approach it. When I last worked with Vitae we were actually unsuccessful at securing a position due to a variety of uncontrollable reasons (none of which were due to Vitae). Ironically, this has only led me to being further impressed by their dedication. Most other Consultants chose to let the working relationship dwindle at this point. Vitae strived to maintain and build upon the relationship for the future”.
“Vitae were fantastic throughout the time I used their services. They were incredibly detailed in preparation, made useful recommendations based on your strengths and circumstances and worked very hard to find me the perfect job offer. By far the best recruitment consultancy I have worked with”.
Group Financial Planning Manager
“From my first interaction with Vitae during my job search, I was impressed with how professional and understanding they were in relation to the type of role I was looking for. They were open and honest about roles and organisations that I would be suited towards and was therefore targeted in the types of specs he sent my way. As I progressed through the recruitment process, they provided great coaching, guidance and insight which would help to highlight my strengths for the role. They continue to check in to ensure the transition process is going smoothly and I have appreciated their support. I'd highly recommend Vitae as a first rate Consultancy”.
