It was over ten years ago that I first met Richard Hodgkins. I was struggling to establish myself as a Senior Planning Engineer returned to the UK after five years in the Far East and ten years in Canada. Richard stood out due to his sincere no nonsense approach. He quickly appraised my rather unusual circumstance and pushed forward with a sensible approach to address my situation.
Since then we have stayed in touch whether or not services were required and touch base periodically discuss the state of our industry.
When I decided it the right time to start growing from a lone consultant to a small consultancy I decided to focus on delivering the planning service and asked only Richard source personnel to suite my needs. This has proved a sound decision and one am taking forward as my business expands.
Richard has proved he is in for the long haul and is focused on building lasting business relationships rather than making a quick windfall. I can thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a recruitment consultancy to support their business on a long term basis with knowledge, enthusiasm and integrity to talk to Richard.

"In my opinion the Resourcing Solutions team are top tier recruitment professionals who at the end of the day deliver not only good CV's of candidates but have a good track record in ensuring that offers made equate to new employees starting on day one.
They combine a terrier like capacity for ensuring that things keep moving forward whilst possessing sufficiently strong antennae to ensure this strength does not become over bearing.
Their sales team has strong professional integrity, combined with humour and the ability to deliver. For these reasons I have no hesitation in recommending them"

They have provided us with permanent and temporary resources onto complex Electricity projects across the South East and London areas. They also support our regional offices throughout the UK.

"I have had a lot of experience in dealing with permanent and temporary recruitment agencies and have become rather cynical over the years, however having been introduced to Resourcing Solutions through a telephone call from you, I have received outstanding service from your company.
Resourcing Solutions obviously work closely as a team and I have always been impressed with the quality of service I have received from not only you Terry but payroll as well. You and the rest of the team are reliable, efficient, professional and above all truthful; this alone sets your Agency apart from much of your competition.
You not only found me an excellent position, but got back to me very quickly regarding interviews and details leading up to my offer and acceptance.
Your service has been first class – immediate and proactive."

It is rare these days to come across people in business that immediately understand your requirements and hence, only provide quality candidates.

"When I first came into the role of Planning Manager it was at a time of significant change and expansion within the company. When a key member of staff handed his notice in, I needed a suitable replacement who could be trusted to ‘hit the ground running’. I had been contacted by numerous agencies but Richard stood out as someone who immediately understood my requirements and who I could trust and talk to honestly and openly. The resource that Richard identified was an excellent candidate and has more than adequately fulfilled the requirement. Since then, I have worked closely with Richard on several occasions and I am continually impressed by his integrity, knowledge and understanding. All planners that have been recruited via Richard remain key members of the team and whenever I need a planner of any level, I will be dialling Richard’s number." Paul S, Signalling Solutions
