They really cared personally about getting me the job and were very informed about the company I now work for. Not just keeping in touch during the application process but keeping in touch after I started my job to see how I am getting on.Lynn - Sales Support Consultant, Cardiff
Andy was a great help in landing me my new role. Early doors, he was able to identify the best opportunity for my skill set and was on hand throughout the process to offer guidance and support. I’m really impressed with the job Exchange Street have done.Mike - Financial Planner, North East
I have dealt with Robbie on a couple of potential positions, once successfully and once unsuccessfully. What marks him out is that he makes the effort to keep in touch and keep you up to date at every stage. Robbie manages expectations and explains the causes of any delay. Whereas so many consultants lose interest in you if you are unsuccessful and you never hear from them again, Robbie makes the effort to contact you and explain in detail the reasons behind this. Robbie is not just a salesman who tries to put you in any position as is the case with so many ‘consultants’, he is clear that the position has to be right for you as well as vice-versa and when you do get an offer then he keeps in contact until your start date. Top class experience all round and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a new role.Andy - Compliance Associate, North West
In the initial call, Andy came across as both friendly and approachable. He asked all the necessary questions to find me a job at a company suitable for me and in line with my expectations. As well as this, he offered guidance surrounding roles I was considering and what action to take following our (many) telephone conversations, to ensure I found the best avenue moving forward. Following our call, I felt confident that liaising with Andy was the correct decision.
One of the biggest compliments I can pay to Andy, which I came to realise isn’t always a given – is most recruiters tend to listen half as much as they speak. In doing so I found with other recruiters they try to fit you into roles they have available rather than actually trying to find you the best available role but Andy is definitely one of the best in the business. I cannot praise him enough as he made the entire process seamless from start to finish – in total it took 2 months to find the role I joined in the end and during that period, Andy was always reachable and provided regular updates on potential roles.Saf - Trainee Financial Adviser, Manchester
If you’re looking for a recruitment consultant you can trust & is open, honest & keeps promises, Andy is your go to person!Andy - Financial Planner, North East
Leanne is an absolute pleasure to work with! – When I first spoke to Leanne, I’d already spoken to half a dozen recruiters and hadn’t felt they understood what I was looking for or why, Leanne, got it straight away. She introduced me to my current employer and walked me through the whole process. I felt supported and understood throughout, but I’ve been left most impressed by how well she nailed the subjective. I’m now with a company who’s values, principles and culture are in-line with my views and I couldn’t be more appreciative of Leanne for that!Zara Okoro
Very positive recruitment experience recently via Robbie Perry/Exchange Street. Polite, informative, helpful and admirably low-key/non-pressured – and ultimately leading to a successful placement. Thank you – Much appreciated.Richard - Equity Release Adviser, Sussex
Andy is one of the good guys in financial recruitment. His knowledge and contacts amongst the financial community is one to be envied. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy’s expertise for any potential recruit or potential employer.Nigel - IFA, Hertfordshire
Andy was great throughout my job search. I was only searching for 12 hours and he contacted me with a role that really suited my skillset and showed he’d taken time to read the information and what I was looking for.
He didn’t bombard me with calls either and wasn’t “pushy” in any way, and it was clear he understood the finance industry which seemed to make a lot of difference.
A smooth transition, and I’m thankful he got in touch to offer me with the role. Both candidates and clients would benefit from his experience within the recruitment industry.Daniel, Bristol - Compliance
Andy’s advice and support from the initial application to my first day in the office was first class and much appreciated. He was always honest, understanding and professional throughout.Robin - Investment Analyst, London

He is highly professional and ensures he gets the most out of his candidates.

From the very first phone call speaking to him about what’s required of me in the role, i felt i was the right candidate. The help he provided was above what I would expect from a recruiter. Thank you Robbie.Kayode - Risk & Compliance Manager, Merseyside

During my interview and in light of the future role they had in mind for me it became evident that they were initially not going to invite me for an interview until Steven persuasively put forward his views of my credentials and recommended that they at least gave me a chance to impress. I am just glad that I had him representing my interests insofar as seeking new employment is concerned. He is a credit to Exchange Street.Michael - Claims Investigator, Berkshire
Robert is a highly experienced and engaging consultant. I found Robert to be comprehensively knowledgeable about the sector; proactive and progressive with the client’s brief; and right on point with feedback and advice for me. He is a really personable professional that I would happily recommend to both companies and candidates.Yoma - Marketing Manager, Bristol
I have known Robert for coming up to 20 years. He has been our go to recruiter when we were looking for Advisers. From the beginning he really took time to understand the business in order to match candidates with our requirements. Consequently over the years we found that we employed more candidates put forward by Exchange Street than any other agency. Recently I had cause to consult Robert from the other side of the fence when I was looking for a new challenge. He only put me forward for one position but it proved to be just what I was looking for, a match for my skill set, and a great culture. Robert kept in close contact throughout the process, even past my joining date to check that everything was progressing as I had hoped. Whether looking to recruit, or wanting to change jobs, in my experience Robert provides a first class service.Clive - Chartered Financial Planner/Manager
We often need to identify, attract and recruit highly experienced technical personnel who are able to grasp the need for innovation and service delivery. Exchange Street consistently correctly ascertain the requirements of the role and source candidates who both meet the criteria and also truly want to be considered for the position. Their expertise and attitude has resulted in them meeting most of our recent recruitment needs.Chris Hall - Managing Director, QuestGates Ltd
After being bombarded by recruiters, Andy got in touch and straight away I knew he was different, I explained that I was happy in my current role but would consider good opportunities. We met for a coffee and he listened to my goals and instead of bombarding me with unsuitable roles, he waited until he found the perfect opportunity for me. I’d recommend Andy every day of the weekLuke - Financial Planner, Manchester
Andy helped me find a job that suited my skills and helped prepare for the interview. He really made the whole process much easier for me. I noticed a difference between the service he provided and that of other recruitment agencies I used. I would definitely recommend Exchange Street to a friend. Thank you again for all your help!Catherine - Account Manager, Lancashire
Andy stands out from the rest because he looks for employment in the best interest for you, opposed to other recruiters who will happily send you anywhere.
Having spoken to other recruiters and being told I would ‘never get that position’ you wont ‘get paid that’, my confidence was slightly damaged, and I was beginning to give up.
However, Andy contacted me and over several detailed conversations, Andy understood my skills and development in depth. Something that other recruiters have failed to grasp. When you have someone like Andy who has a strong understanding of Financial Services and understands the technical side of the roles. This in turn gives him and yourself a strong position to find that special company and position you have been dreaming of.
I cannot thank Andy enough for the time and effort he gave to find me the opportunity I have been given. For anyone seeking an honest, patient and professional recruiter, with a strong knowledge and background of Financial Services, then look no further.Simon - Paraplanner, Manchester
Thanks for all your help and I will definitely recommend your services.Mike - Equity Release Adviser, North West
Robbie was very professional, friendly, and extremely helpful. Excellent knowledge of the market, and sharing ideas on interview techniques. Communicated regularly throughout the recruitment process, and was always available if needed. Would happily recommend.Gary - Compliance Officer, Edinburgh
I cannot recommend Andy and the team highly enough. I have recently relocated from Somerset to Manchester, and the one thing I did not have to worry about was finding a new job. Andy selected perfect companies for me to meet, and each one fitted perfectly with my own values and beliefs on how financial service industry professionals should conduct themselves.
It was not just the pre-interview stage that Andy kept in touch, he checked in with me regularly before, during, and after I had chosen a job. He still checks in now to see how the job is going and I’ve been in the position for nearly two months.
Andy genuinely cares about you as an individual, you are not just another number on the books.Naomi - Chartered Paraplanner, Cheshire
