At CPI Selection we pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our Candidates and Clients.
CPI Selection and John McAteer specifically, were by far the largest contributors towards the acceleration of my career to date. John's understanding of the raw foundations of a salesperson and his ability to coach, train and mentor is the best I've seen across the industry if not any industry. If you're looking for a strategic recruitment partner, looking to learn the ropes of sales of any capacity, or polish a skillset you already have, you'll struggle to find better!
John has a unique ability to coach and mentor entry-level and junior recruiters to what I would call industry-leading standard. His other key strength is managing the environment from a business perspective - essentially the glue of the operation. Would recommend any new recruiter to spend a year with him to learn the basics well for long-term success!
Working with John at CPI Selection I was given huge amounts of support, opportunities to develop, training, and autonomy in my 2 & 1/2 years. John promoted a democratic environment to run your desk, where your ideas are heard and supported while sticking by you through the good times and bad. Successes are truly celebrated. Joining CPI would be a great move for recruiters at all levels.
John and his team have been working closely with Carbon Black for 18 months, in a period of rapid growth and up to the acquisition by VMWare. Not only that John has helped us grow our sales teams by bringing the top talent from a very competitive market, but he has also been a true partner to the business. He puts care and attention in getting to know clients (both companies and candidates) really well, to understand goals, needs, and requirements.
I received a call from Sarah not too long ago, regarding a role in Customer Success as a Native Dutch speaker. Within a couple of days they managed to get me an interview with the company, and were present and incredibly helpful throughout the interview process. Sarah has a very positive and bubbly energy which is incredibly reassuring, especially during stressful times -as we all know, job interviews can be daunting! Apart from that, they have got an excellent eye for candidates, and this is proven by the fact that I got a job offer through them. Sarah will not waste your time, is efficient and incredibly lovely to talk to.
We have worked with Sarah to fill several positions at Addo Play. She has taken the time to understand our requirements, she’s driven, determined and eternally enthusiastic. Sarah always communicates really well with both the client and the candidate. Thank you Sarah for finding us some wonderful team members as our company has grown.
Sarah is a pleasure to work with, and has outstanding expertise in the B2B agency job-market space. An experienced, insightful and accountable recruitment partner who takes time to understand the company and the role, and deliver results. Sarah has an easiness to build interpersonal relations with others; she partners with employers and connects with candidates. I definitely would recommend her as a Recruitment Consultant.
I am very thankful to Sarah for reaching out to me, but also for providing me with a great client experience. Sarah is a highly skilled Senior Recruitment Consultant who is passionate about her job. Sarah has excellent interpersonal skills and is a great communicator, she took the time to build a relationship with me and she stayed in regular contact with me throughout the process keeping me fully informed and providing support.
Sarah supported me with my recruitment and was a great support throughout the process, understood what I was looking for, filtered through and presented me with a strong set of suitable candidates, no having to trawl through a mountain of CVs, she knew and understood the brief.
Sarah worked tirelessly with me to fully understand our business and personnel needs, find a great selection of superb candidates and support the recruitment process so well that it felt effortless for me! She is refreshingly open, eternally optimistic and a joy to work with. Highly recommended for professional and highly effective recruitment services
Sarah really knows how this works! She got in touch after finding my CV online and recommended a role that was a perfect fit with my skill sets. She was in touch and kept me in the loop every step of the way and all through the interviews. Her guidance really helped me secure the role. I would highly recommend. She’s a star.
Kylie has been brilliant in finding a replacement for my receptionist. When Natalina joined the reception team three years ago, very quickly the role became more than just answering phones and booking meeting rooms due to her pro-activity and skill set, so her replacement needed to fill very large shoes.
Having worked with numerous recruiters over the years (and having been one myself) Kylie brings a combination of both professionalism and genuine enthusiasm for her work. Working with her, she has gone above and beyond what I would have expected of most recruiters. It’s been a pleasure working with her.
I work with Gabriela as a recruiter and what I can say is that a (very) large percentage of the recruiters in the UK, and I have encountered a few, can learn how to do that job in a humane, friendly, caring, knowledgeable, agile, diligent, resilient, determined and result driven way. She knows how to communicate properly and simply gets the job done. see that star that is the direction you need to go to.
I recommend Gabriella as a person who has profound knowledge and great skills within the industry. She is the most energetic and broad-minded recruitment consultant I have ever come across, very detail-oriented, and understands the importance of finding the perfect job, she found me the best job that matches my profile, skills and experience.
Josh has helped us build an amazing team, each individual carefully selected and settled in amazingly well. Super bright and amazing individuals, as a team they are even stronger, everyone involved is building our culture and company the way they want it. I’m so happy and proud of each and everyone of them, so happy for Josh to have found us these super humans.
Having trusted partnerships is important in any business. Josh Moy continues to impress me, he knows his market & continues to provide quality candidates for challenging positions. Josh & CPI are my go-to agency for Sales positions, especially when we have language requirements.
Neil is very friendly and easy to talk to
In my experience he had my best interest and supported me throughout the process.
Always a pleasure connecting with Neil.
Neil has been by far the best recruiter I have worked with. He has a high attention to detail and real understanding about his candidates and their requirements. Most importantly he places a huge consideration on the cultural fit between the candidate and business/team.
It was a pleasure dealing with a consumate professional like Neil Moy. He ensured that the whole recruitment process was seamless. It was a masterclass in terms of client experience. I would definitely recommend CPI to my colleagues, past and present.
I was impressed with Neil's professionalism, his attitude and his customers follow up. Neil's skills are a very high standard, he know his job very well and he is very good in all that he undertakes. I was happy to have been able to work with him and have our project come to fruition. I have been fortunate to meet him and I will retain excellent memories.
I have known and worked with Neil for a few years now In both as a candidate and as a recruiter for my teams. Neil consistently over delivers. This may sound like what everyone says but this is what happens, you give Neil a briefing, he goes away and comes back with a few candidates. The hardest part is choosing which candidates simply because Neil has really understood the brief, and over delivers EVERY time. He delivers excellent results.
We worked with Neil to fill our Senior Sales positions in Belgium. With the Benelux being such a crucial region for our business, it was essential that we could trust and rely on Neil's market knowledge to fill these vacancies quickly and also give us insight to the market salaries. In short, Neil filled our roles within 3 weeks from the introduction to contract received.
It’s not often you get to work with an exceptional team who consistently deliver high quality candidates to your business needs all whilst having very open and relaxed yet thorough conversations. This is credit to Neil and the attention to detail he brings. Always a pleasure to speak with and ultimately hire the talent you are looking for.
It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Neil at CPI. Neil took the time to understand my requirements and what I was looking for in my next career step. Throughout the whole process, Neil was always approachable, honest, and extremely professional.
Neil was a pleasure to deal with throughout the recruitment process. He really understood my requirements and must-haves for my next venture and finding me that role was a very quick and seamless process. Listening and matching skill sets to roles come second nature to him. I can't recommend him highly enough! Thank you.
Neil is great at what he does, taking the time to understand the individual before finding suitable roles. He is passionate about recruitment and has built a fantastic network, due to his enthusiasm and knowledge. From a personal perspective, he helped me find my next role and was extremely hands-on throughout the entire process. He's a great communicator and negotiator and I'd highly recommend him.
I worked with John for close to 3 years, during my time at CPI Selection. John is one of the more compassionate recruiters out there in the market.

John kept me in the loop all the time and helped me secure my next position in these challenging times. He is a recruiter who stands way above the rest always keeping me updated every step of the way. His people skills are exceptional.
John was the reason I got the job I am currently in. He was great throughout the process and kept me in the loop and made me feel completely at ease. He was very kind and prepared me for each stage of each interview and ensured I received the feedback to help me along for my next interview. I have worked with a lot of recruiters but I must say John has helped me more that any other recruiter has and for that I am very thankful!
I had the honor to be one of John's clients for a role. John was highly professional and very understanding person who tried his best to find the most suitable role for me. He is very punctual and always calling to make sure I am happy with what has been discussed and confirming everything in writing also. Would definitely recommend John and would love to work with him again.
Sarah found me on LinkedIn. She not only looked at my last experience but my entire career path. Sarah matched me with a new company and a job that hadn’t even been scripted, but due to her expertise in identifying employee’s and employer’s needs she has started a new chapter in my career. Thank you, Sarah.
Sarah did a fantastic job of preparing me for a role with a home grown british brand. She is an energetic and enthusiastic motivator who can take someone from application to a successful interview smoothly!
Sarah got in touch with me about a great Senior PPC Executive position. I was interested, so she organised an interview for the same week. She helped me all the way through no matter what day or time of the day it was. Within a week, I had both Stage 1 and Stage 2 interviews and my offer letter sent across.
I finished my university degree in 2020 and like every other graduate, finding and securing a job was proving very difficult. I was approached by Sarah towards the end of last year and the amount of support that she gave me in securing my job was incredible. I would highly highly recommend Sarah to anyone struggling to find a job. I have been with The Entertainer for a month now and she is still checking everything is ok.

Sarah is very reliable, proactive; supportive and always keeping you updated.
I would highly recommend Kylie. Kylie has been extremely helpful in ensuring I am fully prepared for the roles I have applied for. Going the extra mile by listening, being communicative and above all, empathetic towards the barriers one may face when entering the job market.
I am so grateful to have had Kylie help me out over the past few weeks with my job search.

He contacted me and told me more about the company and described the job role. Ever since then, he kept in touch with me and helped me prepare for the interview.
Josh helped me secure a position in the industry I’ve always dreamt of working in. Throughout the whole process he’s been communicative, supportive and professional, even answering during the weekends in order to keep me posted with the process.
I can highly recommend working with and exploring new opportunities through Josh!

Josh was really good in helping me prepare for both interviews, over-delivering on helpful information and tips and building confidence. Always fast in responding to questions and chasing up feedback. You can tell he genuinely wants the best for both his clients and candidates. Really happy with the new role and would recommend Josh over any consultant I've previously worked with.

Neil showed great professionalism during the recruitment process at Proofpoint. From beginning to the end he was supportive and helpful so the recruitment went very smoothly.
It was a pleasure to work with him.
During and after a fairly grueling interview process, Neil checked in every step of the way. He ensured that my questions continued to be answered, and often just to check in and see how I was doing. These actions not only make me feel supported but internally validated that I was making the correct decision with this career move. If you are looking for a truly unique recruiter, I would highly recommend Neil Moy.
I am writing this letter of recommendation for CPI Selection generally and Neil Moy in particular. I am so grateful for the way he helped me put my career back on track and get my life in order.

Neil is incredibly good at what he is doing and from what I have experienced - very passionate about his job. During my recruitment process with Neil, he never presented me with any roles that did not match my experience, skill set, or personality. He has a lot of knowledge about the companies he is working with and always provided me with very helpful information and always kept things real in terms of expectations.
Kylie has helped me in getting back to an employed position after a period of illness and away from work. Working with Kylie has been a very easy process she has kept me informed the whole way through and provided me with all the help and support I needed. I highly recommend her services and make sure to message her if you are ever looking for new opportunities
