Hear from Matt Rickett, Senior Consultant, Civil Engineering Team:
We asked members of the team what they thought about life at The Highfield Company and here is what they said:
"I joined The Highfield Company in 2013 after they approached me to set up the 'UK Build Contracting' division. Prior to joining, I worked for one of the UK's largest and most well-known construction recruitment specialists and it was a difficult decision to leave, but I have no regrets at all now!
There is a culture of success within this business which I have found inspirational, even as an experienced consultant I have already learnt so much from those around me and feel I have improved my skillsets more in the last few months than in the previous few years.
I have worked for some of our competitors and rate The Highfield Company above all of them, personally I would not want to work anywhere else."
Phil Hart, Managing Associate
"I joined the Highfield Company in early 2012 as a graduate trainee. Since then I have grown with the company into a successful and well-rounded Recruitment Consultant thanks to a personalised and well set out training scheme, learning from some of the best in the business.
There is a fantastic ethos at the company – a real case of work hard and play hard. I am part of a tightknit, quality driven team that is only becoming better and better as we expand.
Whether we’re placing top candidates with the most recognisable and reputed companies in the industry, or serving Sunday Lunch to the homeless as part of our charity work, or wakeboarding in the New Forest before sinking a few beers; there’s always a smile on my face."
Elliot House, Senior Consultant
“I was impressed with the level of enthusiasm & motivation of all the staff. Everyone is fully engaged with the company and the job that they do.”
David Esau, the Investors in People independent assessor, 2013
