What Our Clients Say

Quote Open Quote Open

A flawless experience. Their professionalism and expertise was invaluable in the preparation of an amazing short-list of candidates that, in turn, led to the recruitment of a fantastic placement student. I would highly recommend use of their recruitment skills to other employers.

Nigel Corns - Vivimed Labs Europe Ltd

I’ve been very impressed by the professionalism and fast responses of Cogent Skills.

Hilary Bolton - University of Westminster

Cogent Skills did a fantastic job of providing us with a group of very high calibre candidates against very tight timescales. The selection of 4 positions from the pool was very difficult because of the standard of candidate, how well prepared they were and their enthusiasm for the role. We look forward to continuing to work with Cogent Skills in the future.
