Top 10 Accountancy Practice

Levitate Recruitment found me a job at a Top 10 Practice in Manchester which corresponded with my requirements for a new role. I found them to be very efficient at arranging interviews, which was particularly important given my limited availability. They kept me regularly updated during the recruitment process and ensured that it was a straightforward process.

Head of Creditor Services

National Accountancy Practice

Having spoken with Levitate Recruitment over numerous years, I knew I would be in safe hands when I decided to look for the next chapter of my career. Levitate were both professional and friendly in their approach towards me and provided sound advice when asked. I often find a lot of negativity towards Recruiters on LinkedIn but thankfully (and as expected) Levitate Recruitment delivered an extremely positive experience for me. Levitate Recruitment's market knowledge will no doubt assist countless others looking to make the next step.

Insolvency Administrator

Insolvency Specialist

I have corresponded with Levitate on and off over the majority of my career regarding opportunities available in the Insolvency market. They have never been pushy or tried to force a move, and has kept tabs on me and made me aware of roles which may be of interest to me. Several years down the line, they still recollected firms that I had chosen to avoid for a variety of reasons and I was impressed that they had retained this information, given my relatively junior position at the time. Levitate Recruitment ultimately ended up assisting me in obtaining an interview for a role I was keen to explore. Their interview advice was succinct and I was offered the role following my first interview. I would recommend any insolvency professional to engage with Levitate Recruitment as they have the knowledge of roles before they come to market, as well as those more widely advertised, and whilst they may not place you during your current move, he will no doubt present you with options for future moves.
