Gaukhar – “When I first connected with Stanford Black, I was not looking for new opportunities. They gracefully accepted my situation at the time and told me if I ever wanted to see what opportunities were out there or generally ask any career advice, they would be happy to have a conversation with me with no further expectations.  Their recruiter’s empathetic, low-pressure and personal approach made me feel really comfortable, so when I decided to explore, he was the recruiter I reached out to. Within no time he dedicated an hour out of his schedule for a personal meeting to discuss the market, my experience and what I was ideally looking for. We ended up getting me an interview that fit all my requirements. Despite me being very selective, he still managed to find me a position I was very excited about.  Once the offer came, I received very helpful that helped me secure the package I was happy with. At the offer stage, the team were keeping me informed, giving me pointers and honest feedback on where we were during the negotiations . There was even support ironing out things even after I joined. At no point did I feel pressure to accept what I didn’t feel comfortable with instead I felt like they had my back and we were all working together to get me the best possible offer. It can be very difficult to trust someone other than yourself to have your best interests in mind, not only in terms of money but also the opportunity itself. However, after working with Stanford Black  I feel like the team have my interest in mind and when I work with them again in future I know they will consider my wishes and my experience to get me the work I would be very happy with.”

VP Software Engineer – Front Office Tier 1 US Investment Bank -N “Stanford Black helped me get a new job after I had been made redundant and had lost some confidence. Interviewing did not go as well as I would have liked to begin with and most recruitment agents would have given up on me. Mario was supportive and continued to put me forward for quality jobs. In the end it all worked out when I was offered and accepted my top pick of the lot. I have been in the job for 3 years now and counting. Without Mario’s help it would have been a much harder process and no doubt I would not have ended up with such a great job.”

Software Engineer - “I have worked with Stanford Black as part of a recruitment process last year. The company have been very helpful in matching exactly my expectation in terms of job criteria but also compensation. Working with Stanford Black to build up this understanding has been very constructive and led to a precise match. I was given help with preparing for the various interviews and gave valuable inputs in terms of how to deal with the hiring company and how to answer their questions. Stanford Black’s experience in recruitment and their understanding of the current market was key in directing me to the right position and team, and truly understanding my situation to best accommodate my needs. I would highly recommend.”
