Having worked with Ortolan since 2011 I would unreservedly recommend them. Their responsive and professional team – who really understand what I need because they have all come from businesses where they have been hiring managers themselves - have helped me with a large number of recruitment assignments. Not only do they write brilliant advertisements, they then deliver exceptional candidates. I have used them to recruit for high profile positions in the UK as well as in Spain, Switzerland and Germany and they have saved us hundreds of thousands of pounds in fees compared with conventional recruitment agencies.
