We're immensly proud of the relationships and partnerships we've formed in the course of the business. This is a selection of what our candidates say about us.
I've known about R13 for a number of years due to their great reputation. This year I got to experience them first hand and can now confirm that they know exactly what they're doing. Unlike many other recruitment agencies, R13's guidance and support helped me feel confident in going for the role which I will shortly be starting. Luke's advice was invaluable in helping me prepare for both stages of my interview, and the entire process felt like a breeze. I believe that R13 are capable of this because they actively engage with jobseekers and prepare/support you along the entire journey rather than just throwing candidates at roles and hoping for the best, as I've previously found with other agencies.

My consultant has been nothing less than totally professional and knowledgable, very detailed and thorough from the start to finish of the recruitment process. Very engaging ,calling back very promptly and sending over all relevant documentation keeping.all parties updated in the process. I would highly recommend R13's services if you are looking for work and no doubt if you are a company looking to recruit I would recommend you engage my consultant. Very pleased and thank you. I wish you continued success

I've had a mixed bag of experiences with recruitment firms in the past but I have to commend my consultant and his colleagues at R13.
I found his approach very open, proactive and professional throughout. The communication I received was superb with exceptionally strong pre-interview briefing and comprehensive follow up feedback. I would certainly recommend anyone to engage with his services & I'm greatly appreciative of his time and efforts.

Definitely recommend! I had my first contact with rthirteen just this Monday and they've already helped me in securing a new job. Which I'm over the moon about. So helpful throughout the whole process, took a genuine interest in me and my previous experience, and wanted to know how I got on with the interview. So a massive thanks to the team!

For those who have been in a position of searching for a new job will understand how frustrating it can be to get a good job than what you had before. And finding or having the right support is the most difficult thing one can face believe me I have been there especially for someone like me coming from a different background and culture. But, if life grants you help by offering a hand of help through someone who do their job with passion and also helps everyone with the same respect and support regardless of were you come from, your culture or background. At first I was scared leaving my job as I wasn’t sure I was making the right decision but not only did my consultant make it easy for me to make a decision but also help me understand the role I was applying for and made me realise that actually it was a upgrade and will also help me develop my skills even more. Life can be easier when you have the right support and that’s what my consultant did exactly, I couldn’t be any more happier! So a big thank you to R13 recruitment but mostly to my consultant for the support, effort and time throughout my journey and making my experience so much easier and fun too. I would really recommend R13 if you are a fragile person and you need the best support throughout your journey.

Using R13 has been incredibly easy and helpful, they helped me to find a job that I would not have normally found and also helped me prepare to get this job from the beginning. I would definitely recommend to other graduates as this helps cut down the time and effort in finding a job after university.

I could not fault my consultant, she was supportive and encouraging throughout the entire process. Always gave me enough details so I was full prepped for the interview. I felt very confident.My consultant helped me every step of the way. Even when I was turned down by one job, she bumped up my confidence and thankfully, because of R13 I am now employed. I personally worked a lot with one consultant but I know I saw others, and everyone has been wonderful. I really appreciated the help as I was away in Cambridge.
Sophie - October 2018 - Sales Support Executive
I received recently a job offer thanks to the wonderful, persistent and quality recruitment support work that my consultant from 'rThirteen' had constantly provided. My consultant represented the best qualities of the recruitment profession and delivers her service like very few providers in this field. I was really impressed by her level of professional support, by her enthusiasm, genuine care and superb communication skills. Her long term investment approach for service users like myself, generates only respect and inspiration. But, what sets her professionalism apart from other recruiters, is her high level of professional integrity, when bridging the gap between employers and those that are looking for a new specific appointment (candidates). She genuinely cares about both sides / stakeholders of the recruitment market. No false promises, no empty words. Always available to respond on time and keep you updated with all of the meanders, with all cycles of the recruitment process.
Due to my specific employment status changes, over the past 10 months, I have seen my consultant to be a great team player representing 'rThirteen' at the best possible light, combining her effort with other members of this fantastic agency, which I would like to see expand it business into Suffolk and, why not, much wider across the Eastern Region. We need professionals like my consultant at R13. Having worked myself a while in employment / recruitment business, a couple of years ago, I had a little dream, back then. If i ever acted on it, if it materialises and I manage to establish a model recruiting agency, one day, I would certainly hire talents like the consultants at R13 and possibly call that agency "w300"... They are worth gold. I can't recommend a better talent for you than my consultant. But for the moment, a very BIG 'Thank You!' For all your kindness, persistent humanity and professional supporting work while assisting me in finding my next career challenge.
Tim - February 2019 - Case Manager
I spent 12 years contracting and though most work was through recommendations, I dealt with a lot of agencies both when dealing with contracts as well as looking for next post.
I’m happy to say that there is a huge difference between an ‘agency’ and a recruitment consultant. My consultant has been great in all aspects of providing a true recruitment consultancy service - helping me review, prepare for, and ultimately succeed in finding next career move. I’d recommend my consultant and the Rthirteen team to anyone.
Jason - December 2018 - IT Manager
My consultant was absolutely brilliant. So much support and gave me so much confidence before, during and after my interview. I got the job but even if I hadn't, my comments would still be the same. The best recruitment agent I've ever dealt with. Truly.
Catherine - May 2019 - Executive Assistant
Ben is a recruitment professional, he provides detailed information and insight in to the companies he is for recruiting for. I appreciated the focussed but personal approach, ensuring he meets his brief to his clients and that those he puts forward to interview are well prepared and suitable candidates. Nothing is too much trouble for Ben he's a class act – thank you
Mike - May 2019 - Head of IT Delivery
I have worked with my consultant for the last two to three months, and when he first contacted me, I felt that he was someone who could make a difference. He sees the bigger picture, looking beyond merely the last two years of your CV, which many a consultant rely on when placing candidates. He made me feel confident and assured, which in turn allowed me to make an informed decision at each stage. He was professional, open and realistic. He also looks beyond the words written on a CV or job description to ensure the personalities complemented one another. I would recommend my consultant and R13 based on the level of care and professionalism I received. It was an absolute pleasure working with him.
Craig - October 2018 - Head of Sales
My consultant was with me throughout the whole process of getting a job, getting an interview, securing the job and making sure that everything was alright once I had the job. I never expected to be looked after like that, especially in such an excellent manner. He was always quick to reply, emails with important information and documentation was always sent right away. My consultant is incredible in communicating and making sure everything runs smoothly. Can only recommend them and especially his service!
