I’ve chosen Andrew to lead recruitment campaigns for me at both All About Food and St Pierre Groupe. He has an excellent & proactive client approach, is open to feedback and gets the brief extremely well. He asks the right questions and sets himself apart from the pack with his standard of communication, both with the client and the candidates. Works at pace, delivering great results.

Having worked with Andrew as a candidate when securing my role at Clif Bar, once I had the opportunity to recruit into my team in my new role, I turned to Andrew once again as we had developed a close working relationship, he understood deeply the culture of the business and the type of person I was seeking. He developed a detailed shortlist within a few weeks and we managed to fill the role despite the COVID pandemic and it being an international role.

James Hemmings, European Director – Clif Bar

I would highly recommend using Andrew Baker if you are looking for a premium level of recruitment to strengthen your business and your team. From start to finish the whole way in which Andrew communicated with me was exceptional; the best experience I have had in 16 years of nutrition in dealing with a Recruitment Consultant.
