We would like to hear how you think we are doing and constantly assess this.

We are pleased to provide this short-list of testimonials and recommendations from candidates, working contractors and clients alike.

"When I needed a specialist at the last minute, Nationwide People took the initiative and found the right person for the contract. I needed to ensure a European roll out of fourteen micro sites for a large client and I delivered as a result of their work."


UCL, University College London

"Nationwide People have been recruiting IT contract & IT permanent staff for University College London (UCL) successfully for over 3 years and have consistently been one of our most successful recruiters in placing well versed technical staff from Service Desk up to Head of Projects IT posts. Their approach is professional, consultative, engaging and customer driven. They ask the right questions to filter out the right candidate for our mostly challenging needs. Their services are highly recommended."

Patrick Malcolm - Director of Services for University College London


Brocade Communications

Vincent Galea and his team at Nationwide People truly do deliver quality IT candidates and have continuously performed to high and successful standards. They understand our market domain and ask the right questions to enable them to identify the best candidate on the market for our complex IT posts.

Nationwide People have placed all roles we have released to them and therefore we are very satisfied with their relationship with us working as a Recruitment Partner to Brocade Communications. They come highly recommended.

Kevin Jones, Director EMEA Technical Support


Royal Holloway University of London

Nationwide People have helped us to successfully recruit to a variety of contract roles within IT development and systems support at Royal Holloway during the last year.  They are very professional, making sure they thoroughly understand our needs before sending us carefully selected candidate CVs.  Their approach is impressive, detailed and certainly customer focussed - they are not pushy, taking the time to engage with us in the style and at the pace which suits us.  They have been able to find candidates when other agencies have failed to deliver.  I would certainly recommend them.

Judith Crocker - Royal Holloway University of London

Nationwide have provided permanent and contract IT staff for Royal Holloway, University of London, over the last 2-3 years. Overall our experience with them has been very positive. The candidates they supply are generally good. The company is proactive in terms of making contact but not too pushy. Their rates are very competitive and will always try to fit with our budget. If there has ever been a problem with a candidate, Vincent has always sought to remedy this in an engaging and helpful manner.

Hatfield Philips 

I have worked with Vincent Galea and Nationwide People for over 10 years. During this time the team has helped me recruit a number of contract and permanent staff ranging from Junior Developers to Technical Architects.

Vincent and the team have always been friendly and engaged. They take a lot of care to ensure my requirements are fully understood and then filter the candidates before sending on to me. The result is a set of good quality candidates and where this needs refinement those comments are taken and quickly implemented. 

My experience with Nationwide People has always been a positive one and they're always my first call for any advice or recruitment queries.

Aoun Shamsi, Business Development Manager



"I highly recommend  Nationwide People, they have been extremely helpful with the recruitment of our current live roles. They respond very quickly with keen attention to detail and are completely professional. A real pleasure to work with and I look forward to many more years working with Vincent and the team."

The Centerprise Group

"The Centerprise Group of Companies has been working with Nationwide for many years.  The relationship was initially with Adam Continuity Ltd, but in 2006 this extended to Centerprise International also and more recently CI Security/Visioprime too.  Nationwide People set themselves apart from other recruitment agencies by offering an exceptionally professional and knowledgeable service to its clients.  The recruiters know their market and their candidates equally well and they are technically competent to advise us and interact with us at the appropriate level.  Nationwide People's fulfilment rate is extremely high, making this organisation an excellent all round partner to work with"

"The Recruitment team at Nationwide People have taken their time to work closely with us to fully understand the technical needs of The AA by asking the right questions and analysing our requirements across IT disciplines. They have been successful in placing a significant number of contract and permanent staff with us over the last 2 years and are an agency I am happy to continue to work with."

Trevor Smith - The AA


University of Edinburgh

"I worked with Nationwide People very successfully for the last 3 years recruiting IT contract & permanent staff. Their approach is of high quality and I especially appreciated their flexibility. Being an SME helps them have a tailored recruitment process. Nationwide People worked across a multiple of hiring managers within my team and recruited some very important roles successfully. Their services are highly recommended."

Gavin Ian McLachlan - CIO and Librarian


Distribution Technology

"Distribution Technology have worked with Nationwide People over the last 16 months to fill many roles within our organisation.

We have found Vince and his team to be professional and knowledgeable of our business.  They seek to find the right candidates for our roles and are honest enough to say they do not have a particular candidate on their books.  Nationwide are not your typical high street agency they pride themselves on building a good business relationship and have the technical expertise to source good candidates.

We have achieved a great success rate with Nationwide, they are one of the top performing agencies on our PSL. We would have no hesitation in recommending Nationwide to other clients."

Orleen Knight - Distribution Technology


Candidate Testimonials

"Like many recent graduates, I was looking to start off my career and I was contacted by Colin Locke of Nationwide People about a possible job opportunity and from then I was immediately given dates for an interview. I was very impressed with the constant updates on my progress and immediate response I got from Colin every time I had a query. I am grateful to Colin for all the help I received during the interview process. Highly recommended." Graduate Candidate

"Nationwide People are very informative and knowledgeable on their open vacancies for hire, clients and industry domain. They are extremely hard working and professional and are forthcoming with lots of advice and assistance throughout the whole recruitment life-cycle. They were very close in placing me at one of their client sites and throughout the process kept me informed and went the extra mile to help. They're very friendly and would love to work with them again in the future. They come highly recommended". Jessica Nicholls - Programme Manager
