Mark successfully recruited me for a great Business Analyst position. He kept me well informed throughout the process and was able to turnaround my placement within a short amount of time. Mark conducts himself with the upmost professionalism, I would recommend him and the team at Talent Locker to anyone serious about moving their career forward. 

IT Retail Business Analyst

Richard placed me in my current role and was incredibly supportive to me as a candidate. He has also placed some of my very senior positions, many of whom turned out to be long term contractors who are widely respected in the organisation. I have no hesitation in using Richard to fill my short term resourcing needs and to apply for work through Talent Locker.


Martyn is a highly trustworthy and reliable Recruitment Consultant who will keep you informed every step of the way.

The next day i had my second interview which was successful, and a week on i've done my first week and already working with my team and completely involved.

Richard has always provided a first class service, placing me personally in some brilliant perm and contract roles and also supplying quality candidates. The professionalism, experience and drive they offer in providing a service, rather than just a resource - truly sets them apart. It's just one of the reasons that I'll always look to Richard and the whole Talent Locker team.
