    Financial Analyst – Global Operations
  • Cedar contacted me and invited me to meet with them to discuss my career opportunities. As I was immediately available, I registered with Cedar on both an interim and permanent basis. The process was extremely rigorous and they really took the time to get to know me and what I wanted from my next move. I quickly secured an interim role with Strada and as soon as I started the role, I knew that it was mutually a very good fit. Soon after, I was offered a permanent position which I gladly accepted and I have never looked back. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cedar for their seamless recruitment process and ability to accurately match candidates and companies on their culture and personality as well as their technical ability.

From discreet enquiries as to my current situation, to securing me my interview, everything was conducted with professionalism. They were particularly skilled in guiding me through the interview stage, with tips and advice on techniques to handle the difficult questions. When a offer was sourced I found Cedar to be an excellent confident when deciding if this was the best move for me, regardless of the impact this may have had on thier commission. Even when the search was over and job secured, they ensured that my friend, who had recommended Cedar to me, received a thank you gift. Classy touch.

  • The Cedar Team really practices what they preach.  First, they listen and understand your career aspirations and requirements and only then they approach you with right job matches. This refreshing style is miles away from the impersonal hard sell approach which can be so frustrating. They are straightforward and very approachable. Dealing with them is always efficient and friendly so I could not have asked for a better partner to help me progress with my career. I hope to work with them in the future either as a candidate or client.

    Head of Financial Planning & Reporting
  • As a Cedar candidate, this recruitment agency immediately defines itself as different – sourcing specifically on how people work, the mindset and compatibility with the client is a refreshing approach, which while might take longer, ultimately should ensure a solid choice and higher degree of long term success for all parties.

    European Treasury Director
  • During my recent successful dealings with Cedar Recruitment I was impressed with the pro-active approach displayed by that organisation. Cedar employees demonstrated thorough understanding of their customers – both at the demand as well as the supply side. Their advice and conduct throughout were impeccable.

    Senior Financial Analyst
  • A Partner at work recommended I go to see Cedar when I began to think about a move from practice.  Having already met with a number of recruitment consultants, I was pleasantly surprised by the refreshing approach that was taken at our first meeting.  Cedar took the time to build a career profile for me based on numerous factors, many of which I’d never even considered and was able to advise me on the type of role that would be good for me, as well as potential career paths.

    Following this, Cedar went to work finding the role for me based on what had come out of our initial consultation.  They really listened to what I wanted and didn’t try to force roles on me that weren’t right for me.  This shouldn’t be unusual for a recruiter, but it sadly is. I can’t recommend Cedar enough. Thank you!

  • I’ve worked with Cedar on a number of recruitment opportunities over the last few years which, in an industry where the maxim that ‘you are only as good as your last assignment’ is particularly relevant, is testament to the quality of service that they provide. Cedar has made a conscious effort to understand my management philosophy and the things that are important to me. They also take the time to understand the corporate culture and the environment into which I am looking to recruit. This results in an efficient recruitment process, a relevant short list and appointments that have a fighting chance of success.

  • I am very impressed with the way that Cedar treated me when they registered me as a Candidate. They were very professional and gave me confidence that they would find the right role for me, which they did. They ensured that I was always kept up to date and their one point of contact system ensured they provided excellent feedback, even when other members of the team were dealing with me.


    Even though I initially applied for contract roles, Cedar went the extra mile and put my profile forward for other roles with colleagues in the permanent division, which resulted in me being placed in my permanent role.The whole team gave me excellent support throughout the process and I felt that they put my application across to my new employer in a very positive and professional manner.


    Once again thank you very much for everything that you did for me.
