Client Testimonials

We’re a trusted partner to many firms around the globe

We understand that selecting a new recruitment partner is not a decision made lightly. Your partner is responsible for sourcing, selecting and securing the best candidates possible for your vacancies, and often a new hire can make or break a team dynamic.

At Solutions Driven, we choose to let our successes speak for themselves. Read what some of our current clients have to say about the partnership services we provide. 

HQ: Skokie, Illinois
Locations: Global
Size: >100 employees
Industry: Research
Founded: 2016

We were looking for a lead software engineer. We needed the right person and could not afford to make a mistake with this position; this person will build and lead a division of our company.

Ultimately our reasons for choosing Solutions Driven came down to cost, positive interactions, and their belief in finding people who aren’t in databases. Solutions Driven figured out what we needed and went off to find people, but in a collaborative way.

We’re very happy with the overall results. SD really cared about our company’s future and took the time to understand our needs and fill the role accordingly.

“We were expanding our Global Data team to be based in Belfast, and needed two roles – a Senior Software Engineer and Head of Global Data. Our business is based on data analytics, so developing this department was essential for the business to move to the next level.

We chose Solutions Driven to fill this role because they’re professional, provide diligent service, are attentive, and really understood the needs and listened. They approached the task professionally, and were both supportive and knowledgeable.

I would recommend Solutions Driven as they were professional, concerned and determined – they left no stone unturned. All interactions were friendly and pleasant; no one was pushy or tried to dominate what we were looking for. Our needs were at the forefront.”

“We needed a very specific type of customer relationship manager to cover the development community in the North East of Scotland. Our team had good experience of working with SD previously, and we found them to be very pro-active, positive, clear and pragmatic at all stages. There was excellent communication throughout.

 

We are very happy with the overall results. We worked with SD to bring the shortlist down to 3 candidates for interview, following which we were in a position to make a formal offer of employment which has been accepted. I’d personally be very happy to work with SD again.”

“We required a Project Manager to replace a previous employee. Solutions Driven had supported us on various hires previously, and we found them to be a great team with a great process.

“Nicki and Gary helped us find multiple candidates for a specialized, global role to help us manage our quickly scaling business that is focused on large Life Sciences clients.

 

The well defined process they outlined at the beginning of our engagement was executed flawlessly. They provided predictable timelines and produced excellent candidates with limited effort from me.  

 

Although we were only looking to fill one role at the time, due to the candidates they brought forward we were able to hire a second person that also fit another role we were looking for.”

“We needed a Nordic Sales Account Manager ideally based in Northern Germany. This was a critical role, and we had sensitivities around budget/internal equity versus the market value of candidates; we knew there was a mismatch.

 

We had tried unsuccessfully to hire for this role for two years. We posted job ads and had internal recruiters headhunt for the role without success. I had been in contact with Solutions Driven for a while and liked their systematic approach. After meeting with SD’s key management, we decided to give them a hard-to-fill project.

 

We were absolutely happy with the overall results. We got what we wanted, and we got it fast. They delivered with speed and accuracy, and 100% transparency throughout the process with regular progress updates and reports.”

“The requirement was a General Manager for our UK operation. We utilized the Solutions Driven team for a previous search and found success in the candidates sourced. Their process is very thorough in order to ensure matching candidates to the appropriate skillsets, as well as to find passive candidates.

 

We were happy with the overall results. SD narrowed the candidate pool down to 6 potential hire, and chose successfully from this pool.

 

The team is very supportive and ensures they thoroughly understand the requirements and types of candidates you are looking for, Additionally, they have a strong process and keep you appraised of the progress. They also re-calibrate the search as needed.”

“We were seeking up to two Local Area replacements, and we needed higher quality candidates than we’d had in the past. Existing passive and recruiter methods weren’t giving good results.

 

Past experience with hires in Europe showed that Solutions Driven is a highly professional group who listens and deeply understands our specific needs, then seeks out candidates that fit well. We were very happy with the overall results.

 

Solutions Driven really is head and shoulders above other recruiters in our area, They spend the time to really seek out candidates that are the best fit. They use objective criteria for screening. It’s a real pleasure to work with the people at Solutions Driven.”

“We required a Senior Sales Manager to drive the company’s strategic account strategy in the UK and Northern Europe. Solutions Driven had a great understanding of our requirements and we had very positive previous experiences with them.

 

We received an excellent set of candidates and could happily have selected at least three who would have met our needs.

 

In my opinion, Solutions Driven are the leaders in sales recruitment, both in the UK and internationally. Their approach and work ethics are second to none.”

“We had a need a new HR business partner/ leadership role resulting from a recent reorganisation. Our prior experience with Solutions Driven was very positive, and I appreciate the structured approach to search management.

 

Although it took slightly longer than anticipated, ours was a challenging search and we are happy to have the role filled and will now be able to move forward with the continuing development of that leadership team.”
