Candidate Endorsements

James helped me to get the job I wanted at the company that I wanted to work for; he never pushed me, and didn’t ring me up too much. He was perfect; very professional and kept in very good contact. There are no bad points from me; i would definitely pass his number on to others like me in the industry looking for new work. – CNC Supervisor, Nottingham.

​Very happy; after initially applying for a role, I was recommended a different role more suited to my experiences. Good and quick responses to e-mails and feedback on the interview from James. – Quality Control Engineer, Derby.

What our Clients say!

James, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your insight, support and service delivery around our recruitment and selection processes over the past eighteen months.

In addition to providing good quality candidates in a tough market (my observations are that this is the “baseline standard” with EMBS) there have been numerous projects where EMBS have exceeded expectations and therefore I thought I’d take a minute to recognise them. It’s rare today to work with a service provider who continue to add value and don’t rest on their laurels once established as “preferred supplier”.

Your USP from my perspective is simple: EMBS have the most ethical approach I have experienced from any agency, adding value and finding quality candidates in a really tough market.
