Joby and the team offer a first class service. I arrived with not only a complex brief but also one that was time sensitive. The team led me through the whole process and worked in the best interest of my business. Most importantly, they delivered on their promise of quality candidates. Could not recommend Cambridge Talent Partnership enough. Thank you!
I found it easy to build a good working relationship with Joby from day one. He gives very open and honest assessment on roles we have given to him and his ability to source sales staff as well as feedback on the market place is second to none.
I’ve used Joby successfully on a number of occasions for senior sales positions within my team, I found that he really took time to listen to what we wanted (and helped us find it) and rather than just bombard us with hundreds of speculative CVs, they have a a more tailored style and delivered great results. Also when it was needed they were not afraid to tell me where I had gone wrong previously and how to rectify it.. And it worked!
Cambridge Talent Partnership have become our ‘go to’ recruiter. Always proactive and efficient, they make the effort to understand our agency and our people. The quality of their candidates really do stand out from the rest and they consistently find us absolute STARS who go on to flourish within our teams.
Recently we needed an agency to help us find a very specialist technical sales role, and I found Chris and Joby to be easily the best recruiters we have worked with. They were informative and dedicated, and found us the exact person we needed. Their style of search based recruitment over just advertising, really set them apart from your average recruiter.
An amazing company to work with. Dealings were friendly and professional, lots of advice and happy to go the extra mile. Thank you to Joby and Chris for making this new transition so much easier.
Joby and Chris have been a pleasure to work with, during my hiring process. Certain information was missing from my CV, which Joby advised to be added on, which helped immensely to be considered for the role.
Throughout the hiring process Cambridge Talent Partnership were in a regular contact and kept me up-to-date. Highly recommended.
Been an absolute pleasure dealing with Joby and Chris, very efficient, great professionalism, went above and beyond to ensure I had all the information i needed and were very personable from start to finish.
Great experience through them, very helpful and polite. Would recommend
We have recruited a number of roles through this great company now. Every time Joby has been on the ball, relaxed and determined to find the right person for us, not just play the numbers games that recruiter so often play. I couldn’t recommend him and his company enough.

Joby offered a first class service. He matched me with a job role and then supported me through every stage of the process, even checking over presentations I had prepared for the interviews. In summary, I would highly recommend Joby and Cambridge Talent Partnership to any jobseeker.
They were extremely helpful and successfully found me my current role. I wanted to change industries, and they had a lot of knowledge on what position would suit me based on my skills. They were friendly, personable but professional throughout the process and would respond to emails / calls quickly which made everything very easy.
They were very friendly and helpful in my initial search for a new role, and offered invaluable advice along the way. Unlike experiences I’d had in the past, they were very transparent and honest at all stages of the process, and made a real effort to ensure the role would suit my career path as well as the company itself. Highly recommend, thank you!
