Dan and I have worked together for several years and he has placed me with two companies over that time. On every occasion I have spoken to Dan, I have been struck by his commitment and sheer energy. Dan knows the industry and all the key personnel in the business and I am convinced every time I contact him, that he will not fail to secure several interviews by the close of business on the second day after initial contact. Issues are solved swiftly and decisively, there are no mis-communications and he understands completely the dynamic between the candidate and position being sought. Previous recruitment agencies have tended to treat candidates as a commodity, sometimes simply ignoring them until it suited but Dan treats his clients and candidates as friends and colleagues. If I contact Dan, I know that he will be there or will return my call within a few minutes which is such a breath of fresh air. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Dan and ShapeIT to any employer or candidate and will be contacting him again in future should the need arise. In a sea of recruitment agencies, some good, some bad, ShapeIT is without doubt one of the best and most committed to ensuring satisfaction on both sides of the recruitment divide.
My experience with Shape IT Recruitment and in particular with Michaela was a pleasure. She was proactive, reliable and kept me informed throughout the whole process which is rare with many recruitment agents. Securing my contract through Shape was seamless and I would recommend Michaela to fellow Dynamics professionals
Shape IT Recruitment has been providing an extremely professional service since I started working with them. They've impressed me with their efficiency, transparency and coming across as genuine.
From the moment I first spoke to Dale I felt at ease, he was honest, hardworking and exceptionally committed to helping me, they not only found me a job, but managed to find me a job that suited me and my needs. I feel exceptionally lucky to have come into contact with Shape IT - who knows where I might be right now if it weren't for them!
My collaboration with Dale from ShapeIT was a very pleasant experience. Unlike other recruitment agencies, he didn’t pressure me into changing my requirements and preferences to fit a particular job. All our conversations were on point and focused on trying to secure me a new job. I am confident that Dale and everyone at Shape IT did everything to get me the best options and now I am starting my new role!
ShapeIT were extremely professional during the whole process of placing me in the new role. It took over 6 months and throughout it I was kept fully informed as to where my new employer was up to. I was given excellent advice and they had a clear understanding of the specialist area I was experienced in, which meant that when I had my interviews both myself and my new employer were clear on my expertise. Although only a month into my current role I have to say it was the right move and that I am grateful for all that ShapeIT have done in bringing about this advancement in my career.
Shape IT Recruitment are a very professional agency that places strong candidates with exceptional companies. My experience of working with them and specifically Nad was positive throughout, with Nad always on hand to update me and offer help, advice & support. I would certainly recommend Shape IT to people who may be looking for the right job for them as Shape IT have some fantastic connections with great companies.
“I have known Dan at Shape IT for several years, and consider him to be one of the best recruiters in the Dynamics space. His passion towards helping his clients is only matched by excellent knowledge and considerable contacts throughout the industry. Dan doesn’t consider what is the best role for himself when placing a candidate, but what is best for the candidate themselves. This type of integrity is one of the main reasons behind the trust he is awarded. Even if you’re not actively looking for a role, Dan is someone who you can catch up with to find out what is happening in the market, and will always have time just for a chat about things in general. I consider Dan not only a fantastic recruiter but also a friend who has always been someone to turn to for advice in my next career steps”
Danny is an excellent recruiter, efficient and also has a good personality. I found him really informative, a first class communicator and was totally honest with me regarding each role. He made the whole process feel like I was his only client. Within a couple of days of speaking to Danny he had secured me a Teams interview which lead to me back working again with a fantastic employer.
Sofia has helped me every step of the way to secure a full time marketing role in an industry I am highly passionate about. She has been enthusiastic and supportive, going through the role requirements and seeing how I would fit within the company dynamics. From the get-go, Shape IT kept communication consistent regarding any updates making the interview process seamless, whilst also ensuring this was the right opportunity for my career progression. Gratitude to Sofia and the team and I look forward to starting my journey at Columbus Global!
I’ve spoken to a lot of recruiters over the duration of my IT career. Nad is a breath of fresh air! He’s accomplished, professional but most of all a pleasure to speak to. As a result, he’s placed me in 2 of my last 3 roles!
Nad was easily the best recruitment consultant I have worked with in my career. He was thorough in his job searches and made sure they were relevant to me. He was never pushy about decisions, feedback or roles. It was a pleasure to work with Nad and I would not hesitate in doing so again or recommending him to other IT professionals.
After working at my previous firm for almost 10 years I was more than ready to move on, but in my scenario the next move was going to be in to a different sector of IT. I’d had a bump in the road 6 month previously in moving to a new role, then the worst happened and I had to ring my boss to ask if I could back in the interim. Which was great and not great all at once. As you can imagine moving again especially mid Covid felt risky, and after speaking with an endless amount of other recruitment agents that seemed to think that No meant Yes the whole thing started to feel like another stress I just didn’t need. It just felt I was being told by guys 10-15 years younger than me what was best. At some point in late 2020 I crossed paths with Nad. At first I had the same attitude.. a little recruitment battle scarred you might say but it soon became apparent that it wasn’t the hard sell I felt like I had been up against. Nad was confident in the company he was recruiting for and assured me it was a good fit. After some processing time I decided to make the leap and in honesty I am really glad I did. From the point onwards, Nad was there if needed but didn’t go crazy in follow up phone call madness! Nearly 12 months on I am really happy in my role and thank Nad for his time and effort.
When I found myself looking for work at the end of 2020 both Nad and Shape IT were a great help. They kept in touch throughout the process and ended up putting me in contact with my current employer and the lovely gift I received from them after getting the job was a wonderful surprise. I couldn't recommend Shape IT enough to anyone looking for help finding a new position.
Collaborating with Nad and Shape IT was an absolute pleasure and exactly the type of partnership that I could ever wish for from a recruiter. Right from the start, Nad was honest, authentic and genuine - never pushy and always efficient and concise. He very quickly got to understand me and was spot on in identifying roles where the fit was perfect for both parties. There was never any pressure or attempt to influence my decision making - only unbiased advice and wise council, if asked for. Who could ask for more.
Exceptional service from Nad @ Shape IT. Nad clearly understood the role requirements for the opportunity presented to me and spent time understanding my needs to ensure it would be a perfect match. Throughout the process he was communicating clearly on how the recruitment process was progressing and ensured that that it was a smooth transition. It was certainly a nice touch by sending a good luck gift set after I had started with the new employer. I would quite happily recommend Shape IT as they set the bar with the service they offer.
It’s always a minefield trying to find and navigate through suitable different opportunities and it was a pleasure to have Nad from ShapeIT to work with who had a great opportunity for me, helped me put together a positive approach and highlighted the aspects to focus on to secure my new role. He kept in touch at every stage of the process and was a very effective link between new employer and myself.
My experience of working with Shape IT has been brilliant. Dale has invested time in understanding my career goals and only put me forward for suitable roles. Dale is very experienced in the Dynamics world and therefore was able to provide great advice and guide me through the recruitment process. He has kept me informed throughout, from initial contact to the offer of employment. Dale was very efficient and proactive and has helped me secure a role in 3 weeks. Highly recommend Shape IT team to anyone looking for the next step to progress their career.
Working with Dale was a great experience when I was looking for a new position. He spent time with me getting to know what I wanted and didn't want from a prospective employer and position. As such, all the leads I received from Dale were appropriate and of interest to me. Dales' experience and knowledge showed through with his professional & tenacious attitude at all times. During what can be a stressful experience, I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with Dale. I am very happy in my new position, all thanks to Dale.
I have been working with recruiters for nearly ten years and I have never encountered a recruiter as professional nor with a stronger knowledge of the Dynamics NAV job market as solid as Dale. During the whole recruitment process I always felt like he only presented opportunities that were right for me. This might sound like a given, but more than often other recruiters have presented whatever is on their desk, even though it might be incompatible with my experience. Dale is now on the top of my list of recruiters to contact whenever I am looking for a change.
Great team. Professional, proactive in communication at all times, excellent support throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
I would really recommend Shape Recruitment and especially Sofia! She was amazing when she put me forward for a new job and then all the step of the way she was there to help and answer any concerns I had! I really felt like she took on board everything I said and spoke to the company to address any concerns I had, felt like she really had my best interest at heart. She was never pushy and always made sure I was comfortable with the choice I made. Even when she was on holiday she kept in contact to get feedback from an interview. I also spoke with Dan as Sofia was on holiday who was equally as nice. He gave me the offer from the job and again was not pushy in the slightest giving me time to think and decide what was best for me! Thank you both and Shape IT Recruitment.
I wanted to share that my experience working with you and Shape IT has been fantastic and you guys did a really good job in helping me find a exciting job. My experience working with you has been amazing you have continued to provide me great support in dealing with any of my queries. In the past I have had the opportunity to work with various job search agencies but Shape IT has been the best I’ve had the pleasure to work with, your ability to understand my situation and communicate steps in moving forward has been tremendous.
Really enjoyed working with Dan & Sofia. The initial call was well structured in terms of suitability for the role, and the onboarding process was very smooth. This speaks well of the rapport that ShapeIT has with the client. Worthwhile noting that the behind the scenes stuff is good too, with prompt actioning of invoices. I would highly recommend Shape IT to anyone looking for work in the MS Dynamics field.
<p class="xmsonormal">Had a general chat with Sofia a few years back, I only highlighted my ambition and planned development. Three years on she reached out with three potential roles all in line with what I was doing and where I wanted to take my career. I couldn't believe she remembered that old meeting and had always considered me as roles became available only to call me with something that would be perfect for me. I like that she wasn't as aggressive as other recruiters when it came to updating my CV. I updated it the very same day and I am sure Shape IT helped in making sure it was presented. Despite not having interviewed in over 3 years, I had positive experiences with appropriate support throughout. I am comfortable to recommend working with Sofia and Shape IT and in future should I ever consider another career change this would be my first stop.</p>
Sofia from Shape IT was most helpful and engaging throughout the entire process. All the relevant details for the job were provided and arrangements for the interview was quick. Any concerns or questions were answered swiftly and clearly, which was appreciated. Would gladly recommend to anyone looking for a resourceful company that are willing to help!
I was approached by Sofia from Shape IT Recruitment regarding a couple of positions she had available. Having struggled to find a job in my sector that would allow hybrid working on a decent salary, she put my name forward for these positions and I received offers from both after several rounds of interviews. Throughout the process, Sofia was there to update me on what was happening, give me the feedback and to chase where required. Had it not been for Sofia and her excellent work on my behalf, I would most likely still be looking for work.
Thank you very much for the whole job hunting process you have provided. It has been a pleasant experience when working with you. Your hard work spirit is impressive, you actively gave me phone calls to discuss the details of the job, reminded me for the interview and preparation, asked my feedback of interview, and provided the follow on service even after the interview is unsuccessful. You let me feel more like a close friend not only a business person. Your passion and positive attitude encouraged me a lot for future job hunting.
I just wanted to send this email to say a big thank you to you and Shape IT for all of your help and support during the recent job-hunting process. From initially being contacted through to starting in my new role, I was kept updated at all points and also really appreciated the check-in calls throughout the whole process. I had been working for my previous employer since leaving education so to move elsewhere was a big change for me but your help, professionalism and kindness made the process much smoother and I am extremely grateful for all that you have done. Thank you again.
Sofia has been one of the most approachable and friendliest recruitment agents I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She was very easy to build a rapport with and helped me a great deal through the entire recruitment process from setting up my first interview all the way through to offer acceptance and beyond. She was highly professional and kept me informed during all stages of the process (and even offered some great advice along the way!!). Suffice to say I cannot recommend Sofia highly enough, she’s been an absolute star!
I messaged Sofia regarding any openings for D365 in the UK and her response was so astonishing. She not only helped me to get an interview, but she also made sure that I received the offer letter from the company. As I needed sponsorship to work in the UK, she followed up on my behalf with my visa processing and she guided me a lot before and after traveling to UK. If it was not for Sofia then I would likely have not got this opportunity to come and work in the UK. I would highly recommend Sofia for her excellent job as a talent acquisition consultant. I will be looking forward to working along with her for any future projects.
From the moment Sofia contacted me she made it her mission to assist me and she understood my skills and requirements patiently. Not only this, but she also made sure that whole interview process went smoothly and was available at every step of the way. She always goes above and beyond her role at all times. Sofia arranged a meeting the day before my interviews to help prepare me. It prepared me so much. The feedback she gave me at the end made me such a stronger candidate. She outlined areas where I can improve and gave me some amazing techniques. Her professionalism is always of the highest quality at all times. Looking for a new job is always a stressful time but Sofia succeeds in making this process so enjoyable. I can say one thing and that is she is truly a huge asset to her organisation. I have had a few roles in my career but never have I ever been so impressed with any recruitment agency as I have with Shape IT.
Shape IT matched with with my ideal job role, with the salary I was looking for. Sofia was extremely supportive throughout the recruitment process and ensured I was well informed and confident every step of the way.
I have been very pleased to work with Sofia Imtiaz and Shape IT Recruitment company. They have shown great attention and care, supporting me from the initial interview until the contract signing. They have always been available and assisted in resolving any issues that arose throughout the process. I strongly recommend Sofia and her company as a partner in job search.
Throughout the recruitment process, Sofia exhibited exceptional professionalism and patience. She consistently made herself available to address my numerous inquiries. She ensured that I remained well-informed throughout the entire recruitment journey, promptly sharing updates on my application status and any relevant details. I am genuinely grateful for her assistance and guidance. If the opportunity arises in the future, I would wholeheartedly welcome the chance to collaborate with Sofia again. Her dedication, professionalism, and friendly demeanour make her an asset to any recruitment team.
