Client Testimonials

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.


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 ?


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.


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 at people first has been professional, informative and encouraging. His upbeat attitude and diligence to his clients is outstanding.

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.


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!

Senior Consultant Toby Nethercot passed me exactly what I was looking for and has also worked wonders by not hounding me unnecessarily. a very pleasant transaction….

Gary Church

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 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

Blair was very pro-active in seeking good quality candidates for the role we were advertising, and did a great job of keeping me informed at all times. Highly recommended.

Tom Dawson

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.
