Fantastic experience dealing with Vertical Advantage. I found Alexandra very friendly, a great support providing a good insight about the role and the company, was in regular contact to update me throughout the recruitment process. I would highly recommend VA!

Had a great experience with Vertical Advantage, its so rare you see a recruiter go totally out of their way and manage things so efficiently even when the candidate is travelling abroad. Chris was absolutely great, communicated well - a brilliant middle man working for the benefit of the candidate. I received an offer and owe it to Vertical Advantage and Chris. Keep up the good work!

For the past few months, I have been working with Tom, Rhys and Sophie. They have all helped me professionally in terms of finding jobs and setting me up to succeed in interviews. If you are looking for supply chain and logistics jobs, I would highly recommend getting in contact with them if you want to pursue new opportunities in your career.

Chris Pickles was excellent, very professional and went the extra mile to try and help me find a new role. You are in good hands with him. Although the role I applied for fell through due to the company restructuring, he provided me with great tips and advice which helped me to secure a position at a well known FMCG. Thank you, Jacob

I have worked with Vertical Advantage for a number of years and highly recommend them. They understand my needs and business constraints, tailoring their search accordingly. This is combined with the right level and style of communication to suit my needs, enabling an efficient, yet personable approach and (most importantly for me) the right result… a great Category team. They have a refreshing, clear and straightforward approach to the recruitment process.

Tom at Vertical Advantage was great help in finding the perfect role. He communicated really well every step of the way and gave great insight and advice pre-interveiw. Can't recommend highly enough.

Spot on and professional! I have been working with Vertical Advantage since 2015. Their coverage of the FMCG/Retail sector is excellent and the calibre of candidates recommended by the team has been extremely high. I like the no-nonsense approach, their ability to quickly understand our needs and the importance of fit when hiring for Land Securities. It is so comforting to know that one quick phone call gets the ball rolling!
