Got a question?


Scott has never failed to amaze me! I called him up explaining my current situation, within an hour he called me with several interviews for the next day! Receiving a job offer within 24-48 hours of my initial call with him. If that doesn’t put him as the top recruiter into he area, I don’t know what would. He is extremely professional & always on the other end of the phone. He will listen to what you want, and if it’s not a company you would like to work for he puts no pressure on you. Thank you Scott for all your help.


Amazing outcome for me, Scott showed excellent professional recruitment services, with minimum questions needed to be asked, and is super efficient in maintaining consistency in making sure I was the right candidate and guiding me to achieve this today, making my recruitment experience quick, easy and efficient. This enabled me to give two great interviews and succeed in getting the role, I could not praise Scott enough for his dedication and eye for detail in making the right selection. Every so thankful Scott .

Thank you for all your help in securing me a great position for a fantastic company. You helped support me through the whole process with advice and guidance even after the interview process

Scott Clarke

Scott from People First recently found me my new job. I found Scott to be efficient, professional and friendly. He was great at keeping me updated on the job, the interview, giving me feedback quickly. He genuinely seemed interested in finding me a suitable role. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a role in the property industry.


Scott was probably the best and most proactive recruiter that I have ever met. He was honest, open, very easy to deal with, always on hand for advice, constantly keeping me in the loop with everything, and he found me a fantastic new role. I can’t recommend him or People First Personnel highly enough for going the extra mile and really getting to know their candidates and clients, thank you.

Sean Corrigan

Scott was excellent, prompt , reliable and really seemed to care. A great asset for employer and employee! Thank you

Chris Mitty

Jay was absolutely brilliant from the first call to the position being offered to me. I was updated on progress quickly and received tips for interview. Absolutely brilliant service and would recommend to anyone and use again (but hopefully not soon). Thankyou

Julie Graham

Right, listen up. I have been working in estate agency for many years and have worked with lots of ‘recruiters’. Most are bland and tick boxes sending out CV’s aimlessly without truly getting to know the individual and either their clients needs or the employees needs. WELL LOOK NO FURTHER. SCOTT has been a legend! I am a picky employee and employer. Scott worked tirelessly seeking the right opportunities (yes plural) for me. Some came close but no ticket. He persisted when many would have walked away. He approaches everything personably and with a sense of humour. I am pleased to say that thanks to Scott, I have now signed contracts for a fabulous company and I look forward to referring business back. Thank you Scott. First beer is on me!

Phil Bartlett

Scott contacted me within hours of my CV being uploaded. After discussing my requirements within a couple of days he had an interview lined up with a company that met my requirements. Negotiations broke down momentarily during the job offer/ final package, however Scott remained consistent and effective, rather than pushing , he simply stated we would explore other options. Luckily the original company returned a few days later and agreed the final package. Scott single handedly oversaw all interview stages and package negotiations.


I’d like to give my upmost gratitude to Scott. Throughout the whole process he was so helpful, professional and efficient! He helped me get my foot in the door to my dream career! Definitely recommend!

Shane Row

People First Personnel has been absolutely brilliant. I got made redundant during the Covid 19 pandemic, Joe was incredibly communicative and proactive in finding me active roles to pursue. Great company and Joe was amazing even sending me texts before my interview i highly appreciate your professional approach and cant thankyou enough for finding me my career for life.

Jayne Murgatroyd

I’d like to give my upmost gratitude to Scott. Throughout the whole process he was so helpful, professional and efficient! He helped me get my foot in the door to my dream career! Definitely recommend!

Shane Row

Joe was brilliant from the start, he found me a job in my dream industry so quickly. So much more responsive than recruitment consultants I have previously used! I would 100% recommend.

Ellie Tansley

Scott had lined up 7 interviews with estate agents in less than 2 day. It took Scott a week to successfully find me the right role, I thank Scott for being positive every step of the way, he was very professional and fast with the whole process. Scott what a brilliant guy.


Would just like to say how amazing Joe has been in my search for a job. From the start to the end he was there to support me and helped me every step of the way. I have now got myself placed in the perfect job and couldn’t be happier

Mitchell Goggin

Jay was amazing with the process from start to finish. Could not have done it without him. He found me the perfect job with an amazing team. Thank you so much ?


Had a great experience with Jay, he found me a suitable role quickly and was very helpful and extremely quick to respond. Very happy with everything and my new role! Thanks Jay!


Jay was excellent and efficient in sourcing and matching my skills with an exciting opportunity. He was persistent and proactive with his communication and skill set. I recommend him for anyone looking for work in their respective field.

Paul Burchill

Jay did such a good job. Kept me well informed thoughout the whloe process. He was extremely supportive too over the interview process. Always replied in good time. Thanks Jay!

Fran Haynes

Highly recommend Joe. We’ve been talking for a few months and Joe has now found me the perfect role! Not sure I made his life particularly easy but Joe has been really helpful throughout and always kept in regular contact even if we weren’t discussing a particular role!

Lucy Saunders

I would like to thank Joe Pinfold for all his hard work and diligence in finding me my new job. Joe has a great approach to his job and is extremely friendly and professional.

Justin Cleverley

Very clear and concise. No nonsense customer service provided for people like myself looking to grow my Lettings Negotiator skills. Very thankful to Joe Pinfold who got me the interviews I needed in a quick and efficient way. He gave me very good advice on what to expect in the interview which helped massively. Very responsive and easily contactable.

Lawrance Davies

A big thank you to you Scott. What a positive and professional approach. Quickly got me in touch with the right people and got me the right job within a week and have been following up my progress after starting on my new role. I cannot recommend him enough…

Daniel Cunha

Hello ? I would like to start with a big thank you to Joe Pinfold who has managed to win my trust from day 1, why ? Well because I hate when people try to advise what is the best for you without asking. Joe has listened to my preferences, my family commitments, my future progression desire and has acted accordingly. I wasn’t actively looking, but Joe has managed to find me a job as Lettings manager for a company with the same work flow and work ethic as the one for which I was working, but even better, a higher position, 5 minutes from home and a company which really cares about life balance. Couldn’t thank you enough ! Life goes fast, don’t think that recruiters want from you just a deal ! Speak with Joe and let him know your needs and he will be always there for you and never give up to your dreams even if you do for a second ! Thank you Joe for everything!

Ioana Crisan

Can I say a big thank you to Scott. Over 18 years within the estate agency industry whether it’s recruiting staff or looking for a job i have never dealt with an individual so efficient. He listened to what I was looking for and placed me within 48 hours. Highly professional, friendly and gets the job done!!! If you are looking for a role I would highly recommend Scott and PFP

Paul Colyer

I was out of work in November and had used numerous recruiters before Christmas with no success, all of who said the same thing, it was going to be a long and tiresome process. I started speaking with Scott in the first week of January who proceeded to amaze me with his dedication and tenacity. Within the first week Scott had secured me several interviews in roles that were exactly what I wanted. As of the 15th January I received an offer for my dream job. Scott went above and beyond what I expected and I couldn’t be more thankful! I can say with absolute confidence that if you’re looking for a job in property you couldn’t be in safer hands. Thank you again Scott. Anyone looking to make a move in to a property role would be wise to register your interest with People First Personnel – I’ll be recommending them to all of my colleagues and friends.

Jordan Caskie

Scott was absolutely incredible, nurtured the professional relationship between myself and my now new boss! Absolutely fantastic effort and I couldn’t be happier, he was always checking in to see progress and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a new position.

Christian Themis-George

Scott I’d just like to say a massive thank you. We’ve been in contact for the last 8 months, always calling me and keeping me updated. Very fussy about what location I wanted to work as well as what company I wanted. Scott called me up on Monday and by Wednesday, I had my interview, got job offered and now due to start my new job on Monday! Scott has been very patient, understanding and very focused on what I wanted. Again, huge huge thank you!!!


Having dealt with many recruitment agencies over the last few months it was such a pleasant surprise to work with Scott, he is a true professional and just a very nice, friendly guy. I was a little hesitant to return to the property industry but Scott found me such a great opportunity and I’m now excited to start in my new position, he really puts the work in to match people with the right job and I can’t express how grateful I am for all of his help. Highly recommended.

Lindsay Dean

Scott has been absolutely brilliant. He has listened to my exact needs and has now supplied me with three exceptional new members of staff over the last six months to my exact brief. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott and his team to others.


Scott was absolutely incredible from the first time we spoke to now where I have my dream job and the best start I could possibly hope for. He always kept me updated and always was easy to get a hold of if I ever had any questions. Great bubbly chap and would recommend anyone that needs a change to speak to Scott.

James Magri

I would like to thank Joe so much for his help in securing a new role just 4 weeks after I was made redundant! He has secured me a fantastic long term role, and has been very professional all the way through

Charlie Evans

Where do I start? Scott managed to get my details from an old CV that he found, he then called me and from his bubbly persona on the phone made me decide I needed to change company, the passion with how he spoke about the role was enough to convince me to listen to what he was saying. He was quick at setting up the interview in challenging circumstances and gave all the encouragement in the world. It’s infectious. With his help I have landed the role that is ideal for myself with a fantastic package. Thank you Scott.

Ben Deacon

A huge thank you to Scott for all his hard work, support and impeccable communication. Could not have asked for a better service, absolute pleasure to deal with and found me the perfect position I was looking for. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for a job.


uploaded my cv on a job search website and applied for a particular job in property. Within 5 minutes Joe Pinfold telephoned me and suggested another position would be better for me. Within half an hour he came back with an interview date. He was right about the company, they were perfect for me. 10 days later I got the job. Joe’s feel for spotting the right person for the right job is amazing. Throughout the whole process he has kept in contact with me every step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any property professional looking for a new position.

Johanna Hooley

Joe was enthusiastic and informative throughout and helped me every step of the way. I secured a role I am really happy with and I can’t wait to start on Monday.

Matthew Rossi

I submitted my CV online, by 8.30am I had a call from Scott at People First Personnel. What a great guy! We spoke for a while about my previous career and what my expectations were. Within a 24hrs I had a interview, unfortunately this company wasn’t for me. However, Scott did not give up and the second proposal of an interview worked out perfectly. I received a fantastic job offer, exactly what we both had discussed. I would highly recommend Scott as a personal recruitment consultant. He listened and kept pushing for the role. I’m every so grateful! I cannot thank Scott enough!

Joanna Coles

Scott was the first recruiter to call me when I started looking for a new role. He asked me exactly what I wanted and didn’t just send irrelevant things. Scott is knowledgeable and was always available on the end of the phone. He kept me constantly updated and got me an offer from a great company. I would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a job in property, no matter what level. Thank you for all your help Scott!

Steve Wilson

I would like to thank Joe for all his help in helping me find the perfect job. He was amazing! After dealing with many recruiters it was nice to have someone who listened to exactly the type of job I was looking for and to assist throughout the whole process. I couldnt be happier with my experience and I would recommend Joe’s services to anyone and will especially to my friends.

Leighann Verdon

Scott contacted me about a fairly specific job opportunity and was immediately able to provide me with all the information I needed to prepare. The process from first contact to job offer was less than 2 weeks, and Scott kept me informed at every point, providing feedback almost immediately. I strongly recommend Scott beyond any other agent I have worked with.

John Preston

I would like to thank Joe for making my experience such an easy ride. I’m sure we have all had bad experiences with recruiters in the past, in terms of them not listening to what we are looking for and instead attempting to push us towards other opportunities. Joe was very aware of what I was after and made sure to only put me forward for roles that would fit my skills and experiences. Within 2 weeks of talking to Joe, I completed two rounds and interviews and secured an amazing job. I couldn’t reccomend him enough, thank you so much Joe for your hard work.

Michael Mason

Scott is just fantastic. I spoke with him on a Wednesday, Thursday I had phone interview, Monday I had a face to face and Tuesday I had an offer. The easiest, most laid back recruiter I have worked with. Didn’t send me on several wild goose chase interviews, he only sent me details of roles that would be a good fit. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a “no fuss” change in career. Thank you again, Scott!

Sophie Minot

A very special thanks to Joe Pinfold. Joe helped me find my dream job, literally within 48hrs. He communicated very well throughout the process and made sure to answer any questions I had. I can’t thank him and people first personnel enough!


Thank you Scott for being the most efficient recruitment consultant that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. From first contact to when you secured me a great job, you were always in contact with feedback and when you got me a job offer you dealt with it superbly. Thank you again and hopefully I will not need to use you again now you have got me this fantastic position, but rest assured I will recommend you if I know anyone looking

Robert Leigh

Joe was very helpful in my search for a new job always answered the phone when I called and is always very helpful with any questions or queries I have


Scott was very efficient and professional on getting me a fresh new role within property management. I cant thank him enough as the time frame was also wrapped up in good time. I found Scott so easy to deal with and would most certainly recommend him if your looking for a new career, especially in the property industry. Thank you once again Scott! Kind regards, Hannah Maley

Jess Startin

I cannot sing recruiter Scott Clarke’s praises highly enough. Having been struggling for a couple of months to find a new position in the property industry, I received a call from Scott who immediately set out to find me a suitable role. Within three weeks, I’d secured a great position at a rapidly-expanding company. Scott engaged at every level, discussing interview techniques and giving pointers about the employers before the big day, and then calling after the interview to check that everything had gone well. He’s an outstanding recruiter who I would recommend to absolutely anybody looking for a position in this industry.


Thank you Mike for doing such a Stirling job in finding me the perfect position. You were a lot more pro active than your competitors, listened to my requirements and matched me up with the ideal firm and position. I will be recommending you to my friends and you will definitely be the first person and recruitment agency I call in the future if I decide to search for a new position again.

Jonny Kuzak

I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to Scott & Toby for their fantastic support & assistance recently.

Thanks again to you both, I cannot praise you highly enough.


Scott was brilliant throughout the process in setting me up with the perfect job role. His service and professionalism was second to none and he kept in regular contact all the way through and even helped negotiate to get the right package for me. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a job. Thank you!

I simply cannot fault your professionalism in any way, you are friendly and so dedicated and would without a doubt recommend you to anyone who is looking for the perfect job. Huge thanks to you Scott!


A huge thank you to the incredible Toby Nethercot!! From our first conversation I knew that he would be the person that found me the perfect role. His charisma, professionalism, communication and commitment was second to none but more importantly he listened and focused on my career needs rather than suiting his own agenda. I am so grateful for everything and cannot recommend People First Personnel enough! Thanks also to Scott Clarke for your encouragement, enthusiasm and support. You’re both legends and I can’t wait to start my new job!


We have been working with Scott and the team for the past 2 years and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Unlike other recruiters, they listen to what we need and only send over strong candidates. I don’t know what recruiting methods they use but whatever they are, they make them stand out from the rest! They make the hard task of recruiting that little bit easier. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. Scott, Toby and the rest of the team – thank you and keep up the great work!

Ellie Blake

I’d like to thank Scott for helping me find the right job that suits me. You were really understanding of what I was looking for and put me forth to a fantastic company. Scott is a great listener and always in communication with me. You have been so pleasant and helpful every step of the way and had my best interest at heart, for that I am forever grateful. Will definitely be recommending you to everyone!


Scott Clarke was simply amazing in finding me my new position. He listened to my criteria, my concerns and preferences in a very professional manner. Very easy to talk to and fab with communication. I will be recommending Scott to everyone I know. Thank you Scott!!!! Give this man a rise!!!

Scott was brilliant. He took care of the whole process for me. Dealt swiftly with my queries and was always available. Thanks Scott


I’d like to thank Andy for all his help, he has been amazing at helping me find a new job that suits me. All through the recruitment process he has been there to support me and answer any questions I had. The process was very fast and efficient. So happy with the service and I wish Andy all the best and thank you again!


Very impressed with Toby, Thank you!!… I am so happy to provide this statement of recommendation for Toby as a recruitment consultant. I left my job to seek a new career in Property Management. Having applied to many roles including contacting other recruitment agencies, I was getting nowhere. I was losing hope because I started to believe that I did not have the required experience to be taken on. Then by miracle, Toby contacted me wanting to help me to find what I wanted. Even though I was worried that I did not have enough experience, Toby was confident that he will find me a role. I must admit I was sceptical. However, the next day Toby contacted me with two job interviews with successful property management companies!! WOW, he restored my faith!!! I successfully received a job offer with one of the company’s and I look forward to developing a long-term career with them. Throughout the recruitment process, Toby has been very friendly and efficient. Always kept constant contact with me and, he saw my potential. He is an expert in his field. The advice he gives along the process is so spot on. I really appreciate the support Toby gave me. I would recommend Toby as I honestly believe he will help other candidates find their dreams jobs.

Joyce Hoyte

I am very pleased to be recommending Scott, Toby and the rest of the team at People First Personnel. They knew exactly what we needed. I will be using People First Personnel for all my branches.

I would like to thank Andy Knape for all his help in helping me secure my first permanent role in 7 years. Andy called me on Monday sent over my CV and had feedback for me the very same day.

Andy was supportive during the interview process and was happy to answer any questions I had regarding the interview process. I am so happy with my new role and can’t thank Andy enough for putting me forward for this.

Toby your listening and qualification skills are truly impressive. I have a funny feeling you are gonna have a great year ahead. You are the first recruiter who I have dealt that actually listened to what I wanted and matched me with the right company. Great job !!!

Adam Zoghlami

**Speedy**Professional**Excellent communication** Scott took me by surprise when he called me out of the blue on the Friday afternoon to find out what kind of role I was looking for. By the following Tuesday I’d been for my interview and had the job offer! Can’t express how thrilled I am, perfect role for me and works around my family life. Well done to Scott and Toby who also deserves a mention for ringing me on interview day to wish me luck. Happy days! I 100% recommend…Well done!!


Toby was extremely helpful and patient and most importantly understood what I wanted. If I need anything else in the future I will only work with him! Professional and an asset to the team. Thank you Toby

I am very grateful and excited in seeing what my new career brings and this is all down to Toby helping me get this role swiftly. He is an asset to the company. He always kept me updated in the process of what I thought could be quite a nerve-racking experience, however he put my mind at rest. Thank you!


Scott was recommended to me by a trusted friend at a time of great need since my previous employer was going into administration. He found me the perfect role and within the space of a week an excellent package had been negotiated. As a candidate I couldn’t have hoped for a better service since Scott updated me regular by phone and text in the lead up to and post interview for the roles he had me put me foward for. I would highly recommend Scott, he is highly professional, knowledgeable and he literally hit the nail on the head with this role at such a crucial and disconcerting time. What more could you ask for? 10 marks out of 10!

Matt Paice

Scott and his team are excellent. efficient diligent hard-working and really got to know us and what qualities we are looking for in our staff. Thanks again all

Blair has been by far the most helpful recruiter I’ve dealt with. He lined up several interviews for suitable roles and was very accommodating when it came to talking, he was always sure to call me outside of my working hours and text during the day. I’m very happy with the role he found and should I need to move again I will certainly be calling him!


Bliar was great to deal with and quickly found me a new role in a great company. Blair was there to answer any questions I had and made the process of finding a new job so easy. Thank you for all your hard work!

Rebecca Findley

Whenever I require a new member of staff, I always contact Blair first. He seems to come up with not only the most amount of candidates but he also identifies my actual needs. He is an asset to the company with great communication (even at weekends) and I would highly recommend him.

Steven Jones

We found Toby to be really helpful and listened to our requirements in order to find us suitable candidates for the role we were looking to fill. Very pleased with the service of People First Personnel and Toby.


I got a call from Scott and in about 4 days he found me the perfect job! He really knows what he’s doing and the contact he has had with me is amazing, usually it’s you chasing up the recruiter but I haven’t had to. Really couldn’t recommend this company enough! Thank you!


Toby was fantastic from start to finish . He stuck to what I was looking for and never tried to push me into any roles I was interested in. A true professional at all times and great to work with.

Phillip Bruce

Very impressed with Scott Clarke, his communication is impeccable. I am now in a new position which I am enjoying. His attention to detail is excellent, always kept me updated on potential job roles and interviews. Even now, after being in my new role for a week, he called me to check in to see how I was doing which was great ? Very happy and couldn’t thank Scott enough.

Gabby Casson

Just want to say a big thank you to Scott for his hard work, transparency and humility. He was so helpful every step of the way and got me into work within a few days! He answered all my questions honestly and quickly and was always available to speak to when I had any problems! Amazing!!

Kweku Dadzie

A big thank you to Blair for helping me secure a role with a great lettings company. I had a lot of interviews previously but was happy with the very go to approach to help with my search.

James Jenkinson

I am very pleased to be recommending the services of Scott at People First Personnel. For a while we were looking for a particular type of person that had to have the right balance of estate agency and new homes experience to start the building of what is going to be a large specialised new homes sales force for London’s largest estate agent. True to his word Scott found us someone within a matter of weeks. I was also impressed with his ability to find that fine line between following up too much but enough to ensure I kept the search at the top of my own priority list. Net result. We saw two candidates, one came with a strong recommendation from Scott and he started on the 2nd January. They have fitted into the team perfectly! Would highly recommend Scott and his team.

Lee Monk

Thank you Toby for getting me a job with a great lettings company. After many interviews and job offers turned down Toby has found the right company for me!


Scott was a class agent and effective middle man for me and managed to get me the job I was interested in for the wage I wanted. Can’t fault the process whatsoever.

Scott did a wonderful job for me, helping me secure the job I wanted. I felt he was on the case for me every day. With great communication I felt he very much earned his fees.

I was sadly told I was going to be made redundant 2 weeks before Christmas. Scott Clarke contacted me after applying for a job via Reed. Within 2 working days of being told I was losing my job, I have now been offered a new job that Scott put be forward for. I am so grateful for Scott’s help and securing me a new job that quick! I am so impressed with what he has done for me. Thank you so much! Would highly recommend!

Toby really helped us ascertain what we required from a new employee and hand picked a selection of suitable candidates. He was incredibly professional throughout the process, constantly kept us informed of progress and has helped us find a great new asset to the company! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend People First Personnel and Toby in particular.


I can’t thank James and Blair enough for their time and effort in finding me a role so quickly. The whole process was easy and had both my wishes for a specific role and requirements in mind along with the Client to whom I am now working for. I would highly recommend PFP and already have to my friends.


Thank you so much for putting me forward for the most amazing opportunity. I will of course tell all my colleagues should they wish to move to use People First Personnel
