Nathan has by far been the top recruiter we have worked with and is responsible for filling 3 of our vacancies back to back.

He has been very efficient and quick in organising interviews with potential candidates.

I will be looking forward to work with him on any future requirements.

It was a pleasure working with TechNET IT’s Emily Riddington, who managed the whole process in a clear, efficient, and cordial manner, which undoubtedly helped me to secure the role. Communication was excellent throughout the whole process, and TechNET IT is one of the best IT Recruitment Consultancies I have worked with over the years – Emily is a credit to her profession.”

Ed Davies


Emily and TechNET were a huge help in my job search and I am very grateful for their input; they contacted me about a role which I had not seen elsewhere and was not aware of, took time to understand my current situation and desired career direction, and explained this to the employer accurately and positively so that there was good mutual understanding at interview leading to an offer being made and accepted

Andy Kane


Chris was great to work with and helpful every step of the way, making sure I was informed and updated at every point in finding my new role. I would definitely use his services in the future should I ever be looking again

I highly recommend Simon as an outstandingly capable man, both professionally and as a person at large.
He’s the recruiter any job hunter would dream of, for his undisputable ability, but most of all for his honesty and integrity. He was constantly committed to find the best possible position and at the best conditions. His capabilities as a professional are invaluable and, as a person he’s open, friendly, contagiously optimistic and enthusiastic

Simon called me after seeing my CV online on the last day of my previous job, he managed to arrange a phone interview for the next day, and a face to face interview then followed on day three which lead to a job offer.

Simon was amazingly supportive of me all through a very very lengthy submission/interview/hire/visa process that took almost 8 months to complete. He never gave up, or let his dedication to getting me into the company and over to the UK waver at any time. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking employment or any client seeking quality talent.

In October 2009 I was made redundant. Simon came across my C.V. online and was really helpful from day one. He helped me gain employment at a very difficult time of the year and economic climate. Simon is the ONLY recruitment person I have ever dealt with who actually does what he says he will do and will keep you informed constantly of any progress. Simon is a credit to the IT recruitment industry as he understands recruitment and also more importantly understands IT

David G


Simon organised the interview dates, and got as much information to me about what the company were looking for in their recruitment process. It gave me confidence in the interview knowing I had the best preparation possible. Texts on the day of the interviews, as well as follow up calls to make sure everything went well. Very few recruitment consultants work to such a high level

Martin H


I was initially contacted by Simon Topps on the 8th of December regarding a position I was not immediately experienced for (requiring over 5yrs commercial experience), however Simon was able to see beyond my little commercial experience (1yr placement at Oracle) and realised that my expertise and my personality would be a perfect fit for this non-entry level job position (bearing in mind I am a fresh graduate). After arranging me a face-to-face interview with Openwork within 2 weeks of first contact with the agency, I was impressed by his commitment and attitude towards my specific needs. Simon has been incredibly helpful and a huge asset to me in assisting with worries, questions and any concerns I had regarding the position. He has put in a lot of work on my behalf to find out who I will be meeting with, their positions and generally what they are looking from me. He has been unbelievably useful in preparing for each interview, and the results of this preparation are easily apparent, I was able to impress all of the interviewers mainly through his careful research and advice.

I was able to secure and finalise the position less than a month from first contact with Simon and have spoken multiple times with him, I would recommend him to anyone looking for a job within I.T. very keen, motivated on my behalf and friendly.

David W


Simon is one of the best recruitment agents I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He kept me updated with how my various applications were going and made sure I was always happy and aware of my situation, even after hours. In the end he secured me an excellent position and even managed to get me a higher salary than what was offered. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for employment or any recruitment company looking for a valuable addition to the team!
