Why us? Let some of our candidates and clients explain:
"I contacted Fred when I was in a role which didn’t quite meet the expectations I was promised by another agency. From the outset, I realised he was knowledgeable about the accountancy field but also in the North East region. He listened to my requirements for my new role and immediately understood where I was with my career, where I wanted to be, my strengths and my areas of development. Rather than bombarding me with roles that were unsuitable, he regularly contacted me to let me know I was still on his radar and when the right role came up, he’d bear me in mind. Fred helped place me in my current role and got a fantastic package for me including the study support I required to finish my qualification.
I found Fred to be professional, approachable and went the extra mile to ensure I didn’t feel like I was just another candidate."

"Fred is the type of recruitment consultant you want in your corner when looking for work. I have known Fred since 2013 and not once have I ever felt forgotten about by him when looking for work (something that other agencies should hang their heads in shame about). He is always my first point of call when I need assistance with employment."
Lesley (Placed as Accounts Assistant)
"Fred has always been professional and helpful over the last few years
while I have been looking for new roles. He has always been keen to make I
sure I have been fully prepared for interviews and answered any queries I
have had promptly. I would recommend Fred to anyone looking for a new role
in the accountancy and finance field in the North-East."
Will (Placed as Assistant Management Accountant)
"Knowing Fred Punter was great because he really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for jobs that suited my skills and personality, he placed me according to my ability and potential.
I have been in my current position for over a year now and I am in contact with Fred Punter on a regular basis. He also regularly calls just to catch up and check on how I am getting on, dealing with any concerns I have immediately.
I feel very lucky to have the constant support from Fred, and it is brilliant that he genuinely wants you to progress and succeed in any career you choose!"
Luiza (Placed as Purchase Ledger Clerk)
“Fred found me via web while I was working in AR in international company based in Barcelona, Spain, and contacted me regarding various accounting positions based on international company in North East England. After prematching procedure (phone interviews with Fred, web based testing via the client) I was sent for interviews on site. In the interview session lasted about 2 hours and afterwards I had at a hotel until early morning flight back to Barcelona. Fred met me after the interview, and had a short recap about how the interview had gone for me, which I found great as I was feeling bit nervous although I felt the connection with manager had worked out fine. As I never been to North East UK before, Fred offered to show me quick round in the capital of the North East, Newcastle - even though it meant almost 2 hours drive. Thanks to Fred's enormous effort to make me love the area I didn't have to think twice as I got the job offer. Even after that point Fred provided me lots of useful links based on my hobbies and living preferences to make my relocation smooth. I am really satisfied with Fred prompt replies on my calls/emails. ”
