    Testimonial 1

    Having worked with Kate and her team on a number of occasions, we find the service that they provide is more than comparable with the well-established larger recruitment firms. You get a personal touch and they never overload you with candidates that are unsuitable for the position meaning that the people you interview have a very good chance of being your next employee. The only problem is that you always have a tough decision to make as the standard of applicants is usually so high.

    We have been working with Nashrock for 4 years, during this time they have supported us through many recruitment campaigns and many of their ‘hand-picked’ candidates have been successfully recruited. These employees have added value to their roles and our business as a whole.

    Testimonial 3

    We have been working with Kate and Nashrock for a number of years and have found Kate to be very helpful and a pleasant and friendly person to work with. We have regular contact from Kate without being intrusive. The candidates have always been “vetted” well and of a high calibre and the service is very good.

    Testimonial 4

    We now work with Nashrock exclusively for all our recruitment needs, the main reason for this is that Kate Nash has shown a genuine interest in our business and has made a point of understanding its ethos and objectives; she therefore has an excellent understanding of which candidates would be a good fit and who will genuinely meet the needs and requirements of a specific role. Nashrock’s expertise and insurance knowledge is also key, this enables them to vet candidates thoroughly on our behalf which is a huge time-saver and also gives us peace of mind that only ideal candidates are offered an interview.

    Testimonial 5

    I joined Direct Insurance 6 months ago (via Nashrock)  where Kate and her team had already established a working relationships with many of my colleagues.

    We have recently been heavily recruiting and have successfully placed a number of candidates through Nashrock, including an Account Handler and Compliance Officer, as well as myself.

    I have always found Nashrock’s service and conduct to be impeccable, their pragmatic attitude and dynamic personalities are a blessing to work with. The management and leadership team set high standards throughout the business and they are a very approachable team. For these reasons, I have no hesitation in referring and recommending Nashrock to my associates.

    Testimonial 7

    Kate and her team have taken the time to get to know us and our business and has managed to find the right fit candidates for us, rather than just someone that knows the job.

    They are always on hand if you need to talk about your recruitment needs, and as a prior candidate I can vouch that they give a very good service across the board.
