“The recruitment service we have received from Hunter Dunning to fill our most recent senior architectural post has been very good and they have interpreted our requirements well. The calibre of candidates that were sent through to us for interview met our specification – we now have the right person for the role. I would recommend their services.”

Jason Aldous (Director)
“As a small practice wanting to take the next step and become RIBA registered, I approached Hunter Dunning, whom I have worked with in the past, with my requirement for a Senior Architect to take up a partnership role within my practice.  Within less than a week Hunter Dunning submitted a candidate who fitted my requirements exactly and who, in turn, was searching for this exact opportunity. This candidate is already proving to be invaluable to the practice and the big decision to take on a business partner was made a lot easier by the professional and thorough working practices of Hunter Dunning. I would not hesitate to recommend the Hunter Dunningf team as a truly specialist consultancy who understand the architectural market, really listen to my requirements and have proved to hit the mark first time”

Peter Thomas (Director)
“Hunter Dunning dealt with our requirement in a calm and professional manner. They took pains to establish our requirement, job specification and preferred candidate profile to ensure that they understood the calibre of recruit for whom we were searching and why those qualities were important to our practice. They screened applicants thoroughly and presented us with a close match to our imagined ideal, whom we have employed. Ask me in twelve months’ time how our new employee has performed.”

Katrin Taylor (Associate)
“We are extremely happy with both the level and speed of service that we have received from Hunter Dunning and are equally impressed with the professionalism and quality of candidates that we received.
We have searched locally and nationally for quality Senior Landscape Architects for a number of months with no response but upon contact with Hunter Dunning this situation changed. We fully briefed Hunter Dunning on the role, project and level of quality that we were looking for and promptly received no more than 2 candidates from Hunter Dunning. There was no wading through 10’s of CV’s and we have subsequently employed both candidates.
Candidate quality and a high-end professional service is what we require from recruiters and with that in mind Hunter Dunning would be our first port of call when next searching for Architectural staff.”

Angie Richardson (Office Manager)
“It is a pleasure writing a testimonial for Hunter Dunning.
We have been very impressed by the rapid and thorough response in finding us a more than suitable candidate to fill a void at our company.
We were received with a friendly and professional demeanor, they have gone out of their way to do the job to the highest standards and we would recommend them to anyone who is looking for the perfectly suited contract worker, fast.”

Neil Morris – (Director)
“We have been working with Hunter Dunning when our resourcing requirements mean we need new staff fast.
The Hunter-Dunning team are always first to send us only quality candidates from which to interview –which means that we do not spend our valuable time sifting out those not appropriate to building our design teams.
A first class service all round.”

Jimi Deji-Tijan – Part II Architectural Assistant
I have registered with quite a few agencies, but I have found that your help has been first class – more useful that the other consultants I have liaised with elsewhere ( other consultants have been impersonal).
I genuinely appreciate the advice you have given me, and the interview you arranged for me (in just two days!!), so I would just like to say thank you, and I hope that there will be some more opportunities arising in the near future from yourself and Hunter Dunning.
