I find Paul and Penny to be very friendly and helpful, both as a candidate and recruiter. They take the time to understand the requirements, and roles (as a candidate) and CVs (as recruiter) are always well targeted and relevant.

As Co-founder and CEO of FirstBloc I would wholeheartedly recommend RecruitBlock who have supported us recently with the recruitment of an outstanding CTO for our Web3 and Crypto start-up. Paul and the team at RecruitBlock were very quickly able to identify an impressive candidate who had all of the relevant niche skills we were seeking. RecruitBlock have a deep understanding of Web3 and Crypto start-ups and the additional recruitment insight and data they provide is essential for hiring success in the current competitive talent market. The team go the extra mile and have helped post placement. If you’re looking for an efficient and well managed hiring process from a company that understands the market, look no further!

The team at RecruitBlock provided an outstanding level service. Whilst my skill set was slightly out of the norm of what most companies were looking for at the time, the team kept me in mind and ultimately identified a great opportunity for me. The coaching, briefing and debriefing was always professional, helpful and in good time.
