"I have had mixed experiences of using recruitment consultants in the past and therefore I was unsure as to the value to be gained in using another recruitment agency. However, Creative Tax Recruitment is not just another recruitment company, they were totally professional in their dealings with me, they kept regularly informed throughout the various stages of the recruitment process (not something that can be said of many recruitment agencies) and they also provided me with valuable insight. I was particularly impressed with the level of service provided to me by their Senior Consultant, Constantino Sakellariou. Constantino's guidance and support were important factors in helping me to decide on my own career move and he went "above and beyond the call of duty" working hard with third parties in order to ensure that the fine detail was resolved to everyone's satisfaction. Constantino was superb!"
International Tax Director
“Alex et al In my latest search for a job, I had contacted 4 agencies before I spoke with Creative Tax and it was the apathy of the first 4 that lead me to contact a 5th. I immediately realised I was now dealing with an agency that was “actively” looking to find a role for me and not just putting me forward for advertised vacancies. My 1st contact was at 8.30am and I was speaking with a Tax Partner at 4pm the same day! As I mentioned, this time I contacted 5 agencies in my job search, should I need to find another job in tax, in the future I will only contact 1, Creative Tax . It will be my pleasure to recommend you to anyone I encounter who is looking for a tax job.”
Senior Mixed Tax Manager
"Grace has been a fantastic help during the whole recruitment process. Our first meeting was at my convenience (quite a novelty, given that my previous agents have always had me running around after them like a headless chicken!) and she was able to pop down to my office, meaning that I didn’t need to take any time off work. The practice interview we had was great and the really useful pointers she gave me stood me in good stead for the real interview (I think I actually used a couple of the answers she suggested). After the interviews she let me know when I was going to hear from my new company, so I wasn’t as panicked as I normally am while I was waiting to hear their decision.
All in all, she made what should have been a pretty stressful time as painless as possible, so I’m more than happy to give her a glowing recommendation!"
US/UK Dual Handler
“I found Creative Tax Recruitment to be very helpful from our first meeting; they listened to what I wanted, gave me a detailed description of what the market could potentially offer me and gave me honest and upfront advice. I feel that my expectations were managed and met and they did not try to push me into a job that THEY wanted me to take - it was all about me.”
Tax Investigations Consultant
“Alex is excellent. She is one of the two principals of Creative Tax, the other is Medet Ali, and between them they are driving that business forward. She is one of the most focused and candidate driven consultants I have come across and she also has great relationships with the client firms (which include not only the big four but most of the other major players) so I would say that you will be in excellent hands.”
Employment Taxes Tax Director
“Creative Tax have a wide range of contacts both in practice and industy. I was very impressed by the way my agent handled my case. My agent both briefed and coached me well for the interviews. As a result, I now have landed myself in my dream job. I look forward to working with the Creative Tax team in the future.”
Corporate Tax Consultant
"I really enjoyed working with Creative Tax Recruitment and found the consultants to be attentive to my needs and aspirations. They worked hard to create good opportunities for me and helped me secure my first choice role. My agent James still stays in touch with me, over five months since I started the job and has proved that the development and maintenance of a good long-term relationship is a sincere part of the experience they offer."
“Working with Creative Tax to secure my current employment role has been a refreshing experience compared to some other tax specialist recruitment companies. They made the effort to get to know me, and introduced me to a role that represents a good match with my experience, ability and personality.Creative Tax provide more than just a job matching service, they also provided practical (and calming!) advice during the recruitment process and supported me throughout. Try them – you’ve got nothing to lose. A friendly, professional team.”
"Grace’s approach was very friendly and positive and her enthusiasm and belief in me provided me with confidence in finding suitable employment. Grace’s proactive approach also helped relieve the stresses of finding new employment while continuing with my full-time job.
Grace made every effort to identify my needs and to know me better by arranging meetings and maintaining contact throughout by telephoning and emailing me.
Prior to the first job interview, which Grace had arranged for me, she arranged a meeting and gave me help and support to deal with my interview techniques. Grace’s help and support during my interview preparation was vital in my success at the interview.
Overall I was very happy to have Grace’s help and I would not hesitate to recommend both Grace and Creative Tax to anyone I know. I have in fact already passed on Grace’s details to friends of mine who are also considering changing jobs."
