“We have been using the services of Mike Burton from Chamberlain Recruitment for approximately 2 years and he has assisted with a number of commercial and site management vacancies for our general contracting company Ashford Construction.

Mike has excellent knowledge of our industry and has the ability to source high calibre candidates, which suit the needs of our business.  A large proportion of candidates interviewed have resulted in offers of employment being made.

Mike responds quickly to our recruitment needs and seeks to build good working relationships with his clients and contacts.”

“Well….what can I say about Mike Burton (that can be printed?)

A guy who offers a differing approach to the recruitment needs of businesses.

Mike commits the time to interview the potential candidate equally assessing their career aspirations and their expectations along with their abilities to fulfil the immediate needs of the business.

Tempering the Business Needs with that of the candidate’s has provided a balanced approach and an awareness of what is required to provide the foundation of a long term relationship and not just a short term fix.

If Mike has a weakness it is that he is often too critical of his own performance, since he believes his reputation could be judged on the performance of his candidates.

Never the less his self-critique has always provided me with the confidence that whatever candidate is sourced by Mike they are worthy of selection.

A guy who will always offer an honest opinion, whether you want to listen or not!”

Candidate Testimonials

“Changing jobs is always pretty stressful and anything which eases the path is always welcome.  Mike manages to combine the personal touch with good sound professional advice and I would have no hesitation in recommending Chamberlain Recruitment to both individuals seeking jobs and to employers looking for new staff.

In my dealings with Mike he convinced me that he was acting solely on my behalf rather than fulfilling a commission from an employer to fill a position.  Despite this I’ve no doubt he managed to get a deal which was satisfactory to all parties.  He is obviously a politician in the making and I wish him all the success in the future.”

Ken Brown
Senior Quantity Surveyor

“The process of moving companies was made easier because I used Chamberlain.  It was a difficult decision leaving a company after 8 years but Mike showed me that there were a lot of opportunities in the industry and his extensive list of contacts gave me a wide variety of choices of what company to move to.”

“I was put off using larger recruitment companies because of the impersonal way people are treated.  Mike wanted to place me in the right company with the benefits I asked for.  He did that and I am glad I used Chamberlain.”

“I wasn’t sure I wanted to move companies.  Speaking to Mike showed me that there were companies in the industry that were willing to give me a chance.  Making the move was the best thing I have done.”

Ryan Williams
Quantity Surveyor

“I wasn’t sure if I wanted to move jobs or not when I met Mike, but I realised I had nothing to lose by talking to him.  After meeting over a coffee, I was confident that Mike’s business operation was small enough to pay attention to what I wanted and big enough to have the contacts needed.

Within two weeks I’d had one interview and got the job with a great company.

It was great dealing with a professional on a one-to-one basis rather than a large, faceless company.”

Glyn Allen
Site Engineer

“My situation was very open ended.  I was previously a site engineer and was looking to move into another aspect of construction, but didn’t know what.  Mike was recommended to me and I found him very professional from the outset.  I explained to him my situation and he discussed my options and showed me a list of his contacts / clients.  He arranged two suitable interviews for me and gave me advice on the different companies when asked.  I did not feel pressured at any time before making my decision to move employers and into a new role.”

Kevin Carroll
Assistant Design Co-ordinator

“Chamberlain Recruitment is by far the most professional recruitment company that I have encountered.  So much so that I will never use another and have recommended it to numerous colleagues.  The service is personal and you feel as if they are really looking out for you and your interests.  They also seem to have contacts at all of the major players in the construction industry.  Chamberlain Recruitment do not pressure you into accepting positions and will get as many or as few interviews as you need to find a company / position that you feel comfortable with.”
