I’ve worked with Shape IT for a few years and would consider them more of a business partner than a recruiter. Nad has been excellent and understands our business, culture, and values and is able to convey these brilliantly to prospective candidate. He also uses an analytical and intelligent approach to ensure that only candidates that meet our very exacting criteria are put forward. Would I recommend Shape IT? Absolutely!
We have worked with Dale at Shape IT Recruitment for many years over which time he has gained a great understanding of our business needs and what type of candidate profile fits best. We only get suitable CVs and as a result he has found us our last three senior Navision developers. We really appreciate the open and honest approach. Highly recommended.
Elise has played an intrinsic part in growing our Salesforce practice since 2019. She has always proven herself to be thorough in her approach and has taken the time to understand our business, which has translated in some fantastic hires for us. Having worked with other recruiters in the past, I can say that Elise goes above and beyond your average recruitment consultant. Not only is she highly knowledgeable in her field, but we take her advice on salaries and she has also written job specifications for roles we hadn’t hired for previously. I would highly recommend Elise to any hiring manager that wants to bring on top Salesforce talent.
Shape IT Recruitment have assisted us numerous times in recruiting several candidates, both in our NAV and CRM teams. We have a long standing relationship with them which has emerged over the course of the past few years. Thorough understanding of our requirements and culture, has meant that candidates are fully briefed on the roles here at Cambridge Online. They have also recruited several of our team members who have relocated to the Cambridge area. They have managed the full process, including organizing travel plans for their interviews and securing rental accommodation to help these candidates with relocation. The staff at Shape IT have excellent knowledge of the Microsoft Dynamics market and are refreshingly honest and direct- The feedback we have from candidates is always positive too. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to grow their technical team, or to candidates looking for a new role in the Dynamics sector.
I have had a number of dealings over the last few years with Shape IT Recruitment as a candidate and also used them for my recruitment needs at previous Dynamics NAV practices. I have found their team professional in all of my dealings with them, in particular as a candidate you need to have trust in them keeping your job hunting confidential. From a partner looking for a candidate they go that extra mile in ensuring the candidate is well prepared and is right for the role. They don’t have the scatter gun approach to recruitment that is a real breath of fresh air as other recruiters can fill your inbox with CV’s even if you don’t have a requirement.
I worked with ShapeIT during my time as a director of ConsultCRM to find us a variety of staff in the CRM space. Shape bring to the recruitment process an understanding and professionalism that’s rare in IT recruitment, meaning that we could always rely on the team to find us quality candidates. We always knew that the candidates Shape referred to us were going to be strong, well prepared and well suited, not only in their technical skills and knowledge but also in their approach to their work. Shape also took the time to understand our business and the way we worked. Culture is at the heart of any team and Shape understand this; so much so that they would sometimes suggest that we didn’t see some candidates because they knew they wouldn’t fit in with the way ConsultCRM worked. This helped us be more efficient and successful in our recruitment and ultimately helped us to grow our business.
Having been on both sides of the fence with ShapeIT - as a candidate and client, I am always impressed by their effectiveness in all aspects of recruitment. In my engagements with ShapeIT, they have demonstrated great market knowledge, credibility, honesty and best of all have found great people!
We have worked with Shape IT on various recruitment needs and have always found them to be straightforward, personable and very knowledgeable about the Dynamics market. They have taken the time to get to know us as a company, our culture and values as well as the skillsets and qualities we look for in the people we employ. As a result we’ve built up a great relationship and recruited some excellent candidates. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to both companies and candidates alike, they are one of the few recruitment companies with the integrity to make sure the candidates and employers long term interests are put both above their own.
