Our testimonials

I have been working with Cogent for over 4 years. As well as office vacancies, they have assisted me with my own replacement whilst I’ve gone on maternity leave on two occasions. They demonstrate professionalism and passion in their work with quick yet considered and consultative responses, efficiency and prompt follow-up to my requests. Definitely would recommend as a recruitment partner. Cogent has always managed to get positive results for our group despite somewhat tricky circumstances at times.

Thanks for all the support you have given us over the last few weeks. I had a catch up with Zoe today as we are starting to calm down a little, she just wanted to reflect on how things have gone. I would appreciate it if you could give the girls a huge pat on the back! Sarah has been amazing, she is such fun to deal with and has bent over backwards to try and fulfil our requirements. We both know that placing people is not always easy and it’s not without issues but it’s how these issues are dealt with that make all the difference. Honestly, Sam, you should be proud of them, nothing has been any trouble! I just thought I should share this with you because in my eyes this doesn’t happen enough, people are always quick to criticise but not always prepared to say well done!

I found working with the team at Cogent Staffing really straightforward and perfect for my needs. They listened to what I wanted, provided me with an excellent selection and the hardest part was deciding who we wanted to take on. We will definitely want to work with Cogent again and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional approach to their recruitment needs.

A note to say thank you for the supply of a good set of workers. They are a credit to your business. Many thanks for your prompt and valued support.

Cogent Staffing has been truly fantastic and supportive on my journey in returning to work after having my daughter. I was daunted and worried but the team’s friendly manner and supportive nature have allowed me to feel at ease with the whole process! I can’t thank you enough!

I would recommend Cogent Staffing to anyone in the professional environment. I want to thank Cogent Staffing for finding the perfect position for me.

David was fantastic to work with. As a recruiter, he maintained a highly professional demeanour, was always very friendly, and found me the perfect job instantly! David was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help throughout the process. I could not recommend David more highly. Thank you!
