Some of our Customer comments...


"...I have recently secured employment as a Commercial Manager with a market leading Worldwide Cruise Company, having been introduced and represented by Excite Recruitment. The application and recruitment process was fairly lengthy and involved numerous stages of tasks, projects and interviews however it has been an enjoyable and pleasant journey thanks to the professionalism and dedication of Russ and the excellent team at Excite.


From initial help with structuring and creating the perfect CV, assistance at application stage and guidance during every step of the process I have felt fully informed, confident and supported throughout.  Communication, information and feedback have been second to none and any calls or questions I have raised have been answered speedily and efficiently.
It has been hugely reassuring working with a team of Professionals who genuinely make you, the candidate feel that your future career and prospects are as important to them as they are to you, providing assistance at every level, even down to advice on obtaining visa’s and other documents required for the new role, after the offer of employment has been made.
I would not hesitate to recommend Excite Recruitment to anybody who is serious about finding and making the perfect career move, as I genuinely believe that a candidate could not be in more professional and capable hands.

“…We have worked with Excite Recruitment for over 3 years and they have forged with us a strong working relationship based on trust and quality of performance.


The Excite Recruitment team offer quite simply an outstanding service, coupled with being a great organisation - responsive and totally committed to supporting Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Requirements.


I have worked personally with Excite for over a year and have forged a strong working relationship; on a business and personal level. 


Excite Recruitment’s dedication to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has been obvious in the high calibre of candidates that we have received. All who are still with FOCL to date. It has been a true pleasure working with Excite and we will carry on using their excellent service for the foreseeable future.


Thanks for all your help. Keep up the great work


Kind Regards & Many Thanks.."

"...Thanks to Excite Recruitment we have been able to construct a totally new team for our kitchen in a remarkably short period of time.  This team receives nothing but plaudits from our guests and each member of the team displays the attitudes and behaviours that all employers are looking for. Excite Recruitment's delivery of talented potential candidates surpasses all other recruitment consultancies I have worked with previously - their short-listing of candidates is particularly good, meaning that no time is wasted dealing with unsuitable candidates.  We have now decided to use only Excite Recruitment's in forthcoming recruitment campaigns..."

"...I would like to thank Excite Recruitment for their speed and efficiency in finding us a Account Executive to join our Sales Team.  It took the team under a week to find us this candidate, which was pretty impressive especially as I had been looking for over five!


During this time I found Excite Recruitment’s business manner and their professionalism extremely refreshing, as past dealings with agencies have left me very anti-using them due to their pushy nature and it’s all about the sale rather then people attitude!  This however, cannot be said about Excite Recruitment who’s standards are clearly getting the right candidate into the right job and working in partnership with their clients.


 I have since recommended them to our London Recruiter who was as equally impressed and has asked them to work on a number of other positions in our other London Hotels..."


HR & Training Manager

Tara Copthorne Hotel London Kensington



"...I have worked with several agents throughout my career placing me places like Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, etc. However, I found the Excite Recruitment Company to be very professional, competent in matters related to specific job related questions, and friendly.


I would also like to personally thank Mr. Russ Simove for helping me find the right job with the right company. His follow up throughout my recruitment process was impeccable and I must say, sincere. It made a difference in my case!


Once again, it is a pleasure to have shared my thoughts regarding this great new recruitment company..."


Windjammer Manager

Royal Caribbean Cruises



"...I wanted to Thank You (Russ) and Rob for your excellent service and representation.  In the past 10 years I have worked with many recruitment agencies in my role as HR and Training Manager for WMG Training and St. David’ hotel and Spa, but only two agencies in ten years have ever consistently received my business. You have even out shined them in customer care and client representation.  Excite Recruitment does a stellar job of representing the client and candidate by giving both equal value and attention.  


I was very hesitant about working with a recruitment agency, because I did not want to just be a CV on someone’s system, sent out to anyone asking for an HR Manager.  Prior to speaking with yourself I had met with four agencies and had not been very impressed.  So when I called Excite I was delighted to speak with someone whose actions (i.e. emails with “How To” information, research suggestions, and emails of good luck prior to my interviews) spoke louder then their words.  From my first point of contact to my first day of my contract with Cunard, you have been so informative and helpful.  


When someone like myself is returning to the job search market after such a long time being employed it is a bit like returning to dating (I would guess) and being in the business of HR did not mean I would not feel a bit unsure on how to best present my CV…even interviewing made me a bit nervous.   Your guidance, understanding and support have been key to helping me secure a post with the Cunard Line on the QE2.   


There is a song titled “It ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it” I think that best describes my experience with Excite Recruitment.  Excite provides the service and customer care other recruitment agencies claim to do on paper but fail to deliver.


Much success to you and Excite Recruitment with warmest regards..."
