R13 are one of a kind! They are personable, trustworthy, great fun to work with and they care about
both the candidate and the business. Regardless if we have roles to fill, R13 have always been on hand
for help and advice. R13 are a great team and I would always reccomend them to any business or
candidate.

R13 are the only recruitment agency we use. For all of our broad spectrum recruitment, from specialist key roles to more general recruitment needs we receive a fantastic, dedicated service. They make a real effort to integrate into our workforce helping them better understand our recruitment needs, for us, this makes them the perfect recruitment partner – we wouldn’t use anyone else.

My consultant is very personable guy who is great at what he does. He identified a dream role, made sure I applied and was very helpful throughout the interview and negotiation phase.

rthirteen have worked with us in finding the right candidates for hard to fill vacancies, such as a Pensions Officer and a Finance Supervisor.  By taking time to understand how our organisation works and asking comprehensive questions about each role, rthirteen are able to put forward only the candidates who are the best fit for both that specific role and our organisation. 

rthirteen are honest when they cannot find anyone suitable to put forward in order that we can consider other ways of filling vacancies without delay.  I feel that the groundwork rthirteen have put in in getting to know us and the type of roles we have means that we have confidence when placing vacancies with them that our time will not be wasted in receiving a large number of CVs of unsuitable candidates.

The rthirteen team helped us find someone incredibly quickly for a difficult to fill and demanding role. Their team was quick to respond to requests, kept us updated even when it was outside of office hours and really listened to our requirements. The speed and efficiency of the placement has made them well worth their fee, I'll definitely be using them again in the future.

I initially made contact with R13 when I was looking to engage an agency who would work with me collaboratively on a large scale business change project within in my contact centre. The  requirement was for an agency to support us, not only in terms of providing CV’s and bodies, but in terms of understanding the sensitive nature of the change and effectively managing the various campaigns ranging from Contact Centre Manager to Team Leader to Contact Centre Reps and specialist roles incorporating Compliance and Quality.

The team at R13 provided a seamless service. They regularly visit onsite and have wholeheartedly embraced the change and cultural developmental journey we are on. They consult to us, they add value in providing us with market knowledge, and feedback in relation to ideas to continue to improve our recruitment, induction and retention operations. They truly support our Mangers with a comprehensive after care service.

They understand our business, they get “it”, and the candidates they provide are well informed, well prepared and completely suitable for the roles we have available – and they are happy here and they stay. They have provided us with an excellent range and calibre of applicants who have successfully contributed to building an operation which is exceeding targets and surpassing EMT’s expectations in terms of performance.

R13’s attention to detail and dedication to service excellence are a credit to the recruitment sector, and they will continue to support our business operations in the future.

R13 have been invaluable in helping me fill specialist roles that there’s not a huge pool of candidates for. For example, our CRM & Insights Manager was recruited through R13 and the candidate they placed with us is an absolute gem. They weren't even looking for a new job at the time, so we would have never have found them through our own channels, but R13’s creativity and determination found us the right candidate.

Sonia - August 2018
- Marketing Director

Having known a few consultants from the R13 team when they worked in previous recruitment roles (for more years than we are all happy to admit…) it was great from a client perspective that their paths have now joined under rthirteen.

Myself and the management team have complete confidence that the rthirteen team know both our business, our employees and our customer base to be able to source candidates that they know will be well received and a strong fit with the business here. The team will always go above and beyond (a phrase too often used but so true in this case) to meet our needs whatever hour of the day that may be, and I for one certainly see them as an extension of the HR team here.

Matt - July 2018
- Head of HR

Having worked with R13 for Several years now I can say that they offer a first-class service. I would class them as more of a ‘recruitment sniper’ than a recruitment agency. They send through a small, yet highly vetted and targeted candidate list, who all have exciting potential no matter what the role is. In a fast-paced work environment this less is more approach when it comes reading CV’s makes R13 a partner of choice.

Taking the time to understand the needs of the role as well as the feel of the business environment, has helped them to get a high success rate, so to say they understand business needs is an understatement. The time and effort they spend investigating how things work is a refreshing change, to what can be a ‘spray and pay’ general industry strategy.

The added support and insight which is provided (as standard) regarding the current candidate landscape, is highly valuable when managing internal expectations and ensuring the right package is offered to attract the best quality of applicant. Keep up the great work!

I’d score R13 a 10/10. They have a different approach to recruitment consultancy. They care about both the client and the candidate. It’s as though they see their fees and commission as a consequence of using their expertise to do a great job, rather than a goal. Highly recommended.

 

Richard - May 2018

R13 are responsible for placing about 70% of our team. Their service is dedicated, personal and thorough - and we're pleased to have an exclusivity arrangement with them that is mutually beneficial to our companies. They have really got to know our company and culture, meaning that they find people who not only have the skills and attitude that we require, but the personality types that will work in our lovely team.

We challenge R13 by asking for really specific skillsets within our field - and they consistently go above and beyond to find the right candidates for us. The candidates are always well-prepared for interview, and almost always a 100% perfect fit for our organisation.

In the past 12 months we have doubled in size, and R13’s support has been pivotal to making sure we have the right people joining us and at the right time. From senior strategists to PPC specialists, they have taken the time to understand the jargon of our industry and pre-qualify candidates effectively. We have a very low staff turnaround within our company, which we attribute not only to our culture, but also to R13’s capacity to find the right people to join us.
