We want to help our clients in Cyber Security, Web Design & Software Development to achieve post Covid-19 growth, to increase their turnover and their brand awareness by providing expert Sales & Marketing staff.
Government data shows that there is a significant volume of business for the taking in these sectors right now, and we are proactively helping our clients to increase their market share.
One clear example here for the Cyber Security industry shows that the highest proportion of businesses to date say that their “senior management consider cyber security to be a high priority” and that more businesses are “seeking information and guidance on cyber security”!

“Firstly, I think we gave you an extremely difficult brief as we have been looking for superwoman on a budget and the 3 Directors had mixed views on what Superwoman should look like.
Because of the multi skills required from PA , Accountancy, Software literate and general Office Manager duties, it was obvious to me the person would need to be more mature to have this experience, a view that was not always shared internally . I am delighted to see how professional and dedicated you have been on this brief and in my long career I have never worked with a recruitment agency that took so much time to understand the brief, screen so many candidates and short list so accurately that 4 out of 5 candidates would have been competent in the role.
We have really enjoyed working with you on this assignment and after the expensive disaster of our first attempt via a well known national recruiter to recruit we are confident you are the right choice for our future recruitment needs”.

“Everyone needs a top drawer recruiter in their corner – Elaine is top drawer!”
Wirral based marketing agency
“I was very impressed with the speed at which Elaine and her team reacted to our request to fill an urgent vacancy. The understanding of the position we were filling, and the type of candidate required was reflected in the selection of candidates and CV’s sent over, which allowed us to quickly identify, offer and have a new member join our team.
Really delighted with all the help and would recommend Elaine and her team highly.”
“I hate having to deal with recruitment companies!
That was until I had the pleasure of being introduced to Elaine at Courtney Recruitment.
Previously I found that all recruitment companies were interested in doing was filling a vacancy for their benefit, it didn’t matter who the candidate was, just as long as they got taken on.
The difference with Elaine was that she asked to come and see me, she wanted to get to know what I was interested in and what type of candidate was right for our business.
I don’t get loads of CV’s for unnecessary “potential candidates”, but the right type of candidate that I’m looking for.
Elaine and her team are a breath of fresh air within the recruitment industry and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends and business colleagues.”
“Elaine’s approach to recruitment is highly professional and I found that she works with great honesty and integrity, which is a breath of fresh air compared with other recruitment experiences I have had.
I would not hesitate to get in touch with Elaine for my next career move.”
“I didn’t expect that being interviewed by an agency could be such a positive experience, but Courtney Recruitment surprised me.
From the first telephone call, to the last interview, and every email and text in between, Courtney Recruitment made me feel that I was a valued interviewee.
I can’t remember ever going through an interview process where I was left feeling so impressed by the recruitment agency. The warm professionalism, as well as the regular and helpful communication of Courtney Recruitment made me feel a valued interviewee, as well as excited about my new job.
I was very pleasantly surprised by Courtney Recruitment. They combined a highly professional approach to interviews with regular, friendly and helpful communications.
Courtney Recruitment exceeded my expectations. They are an extremely dedicated and professional team who took great care to keep me well informed throughout the interview process, even checking in with me after I began my new job.”
“Throughout my dealings with you and your office, there has always been a high level of professionalism, from my initial meeting with yourself to the finding of candidates and interviewing process. This is in stark contrast to the other agencies I have used previously which have been highly unprofessional.
I have found your organisation to be extremely thorough throughout the whole recruitment process.
And regarding the quality of the candidates presented to us, all I can say is that every candidate you have put in front of me has been fit for purpose. This is because you invested the time upfront to understand exactly the sort of person we are looking for.
I would absolutely recommend you to any other organisation. You are the best agency I have worked with and will not be using anybody else in the future”.
Wealth Management Company, Formby
“I have been working with both Elaine and Stuart from Courtney Recruitment for two years, and I have found them both highly professional and clearly focused on delivering an exceptional client service.
They are always keen to ensure they have the Profile for the candidate absolutely accurate, and with that attention to detail they invariably find the right person for the identified role.
I have also found them very flexible in their approach to arranging and attending candidate meetings, and providing additional candidates notes in addition to the actual CV.
However, results are what matter, and over the last 2 years, Courtney Recruitment have placed candidates for Office Admin, Office Managers, Paraplanners and more.
Courtney Recruitment are now referred regularly by the management team within both the Liverpool office & the new Business Growth Unit”.
Liverpool Wealth Management Company
“Given that most companies nowadays use recruitment agencies, job seekers do have to deal with them.
Courtney Recruitment is the best I have come across, by far.
Their advantage over the recruitment giants is that they offer a highly personalised service, taking time and trouble to find out what both the candidate and the recruiter are looking for.
The level of professionalism and customer service is way beyond what I have experienced elsewhere.”
“I’ve already recommended Elaine and the team to several of our contacts as the service we received was unparalleled. We run software teams and are used to hiring lots of people and, to be frank, working with recruiters has always been a nightmare. We had a completely different experience when working with Courtney.
Elaine worked on tightening our job spec, processing applications, phone interviews, face to face interviews and finally recommendations on who we should employ. We ended the process having invested relatively little time ourselves and the results exceeded our expectations in every aspect.
We fully expect to work with Elaine on further projects in the near future.”
“Courtney Recruitment provided me with an outstanding service and attention to detail! Laura and Elaine made me feel comfortable and confident, they were professional but very approachable, they made me feel like their door was open 24/7 even following my interview.
Their excellent support throughout meant that from the first phone call, to getting to interview stage they ensured that I was well informed and that enabled me to focus on the main aim, getting the job! They truly made my experience one to remember and I can’t thank them enough for helping me to secure my dream job. I would highly recommend them.”
“Having used several ‘large’ recruiters over the years, none of whom I felt had given us the level of service that we would expect, I engaged Courtney Recruitment to work on finding a new member of my team.
I had heard that they were ‘different to other recruiters’ and whilst sceptical, I decided to give them a chance and see what they could do.
From the first interaction to the placement of the candidate, I can honestly say that they have delivered a process for recruitment that is not only highly effective, but has saved me a whole lot of time, cost and effort and, most importantly, has found a new employee who I firmly believe will be with us for the long term to help us grow the business. The person who got the job was exactly what our business needed.
I would have no problem in recommending Courtney Recruitment to contacts and clients, as I feel that they have delivered on their promise to change my mind about how recruitment can, and should, be done. I will not be using the services of the national recruiters in the area any longer! I’ve told Courtney Recruitment that they have all of my business moving forward.
Accountancy Practice – Liverpool City Centre
“We came to Courtney Recruitment to ask for help to recruit an IT technician.
At our first meeting with Elaine, she outlined the process and she assured us that she would stop at nothing to ensure we got the best person for the job, which is no easy task given the role itself is not an ‘easy-to-fill’.
Although it proved challenging, Elaine and her team persevered and held out until we found the right guy (well it’s been almost a month in with us and he’s still here so he must be!)
I would like to thank all of you at Courtney Recruitment for your excellent service and commitment to the task, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to business associates, friends and family.
Thanks once again.”
“Just wanted to thank both Elaine & Stuart and the Team @ Courtney Recruitment for the hard work and untold hours spent with me building my profile and skill set for the role I’m currently in. From the very 1st meeting over a coffee, they were friendly, approachable yet professional in every aspect of the recruitment process. They uncovered qualities in me that I failed to recognise myself which built a better understanding of who I am and what I could offer an employer. Anyone who is in a position where they feel undervalued, over worked and under paid, then please give Elaine a call! 0151 601 6263 Congratulations on breaking into the Industrial market guy’s…….. See you at the top!”
