As the Director of Sales at Sterling Locks/Burg-Wächter UK; I have worked with Cavendish Maine on many occasions.
Every time I have had the need to recruit, I have found Cavendish Maine to be very quick at fully understanding our company needs and requirements for the sales role, and have the confidence that they will quickly start work on both a search of their current applicants and, if not suitable, be pro-active in searching their vast knowledge of the DIY/Security industry and the sales personnel within the industry. Cavendish Maine are always quick at submitting CV’s for my attention on an ongoing basis and then works with me to ensure that the right person only is put forward for an interview.
When a sales person has been appointed through Cavendish Maine, they maintain a close dialogue with the new employee and our company to ensure that everything is running smoothly, that both parties are happy and comfortable right through to the actual start date.
Cavendish Maine have always been my first point of call when recruiting new or replacement sales staff and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any other company.

I have worked with Steve Mallaband, Cavendish Maine, for over 10 years now and during this time Steve has come to know me, the team and the company which makes finding the right candidate a much easier task.
I know that Steve will only send me candidates that are the right fit for us. On average I receive 3 phone calls or emails from recruitment companies every day, occassionally I try them out and then I always return to Steve.
Lorraine Holoway, Regional HR/Operations Manager

Cavendish Maine have invested time to fully understand our Company, culture and our people at Andreas Stihl. They are an excellent recruitment partner, extremely professional at all times, who we always enjoy working with. Their shortlisting approach is extremely thorough and we are very confident in the candidates they present to us.
Victoria Gilliland, Personnel Manager
I started dealing with Cavendish Maine, along with a number of other recruitment agencies, in 2014 when the business started an investment programme in its sales teams. We have since filled two senior National Account positions with both of the successful candidates having been introduced to us through Cavendish Maine.
I believe that their success lies in their ability to find genuinely compatible candidates suited to our requirements, something that has saved me a lot of time over the past 8 months and has enabled me to fill the required positions as quickly as possible.
I will certainly continue to keep in touch with Cavendish Maine when further recruitment opportunities arise
Paul Lichfield, DIY Sales Manager
Cavendish Maine have partnered the business for a number of years, successfully supporting the recruitment to a number of key commercial roles from area sales to director level. The team stand out for their ability to understand the sector we operate in as well as our specific business needs, with a level of realism and pragmatism. They always respond quickly and communicate well through the recruitment process.
Angela Wagstaff, Group Head of Human Resources
I have worked closely with Cavendish Maine for a number of years now. They are always incredibly responsive and have always provided sterling service. In my opinion they are the best option when searching for candidates who have experience in the Greeting card sector or closely related markets.

I would only ever use Cavendish Maine for Field Sales staff recruitment. They were excellent when I changed roles on a number of occasions and now that I am the recruiter, I find that they take time to understand our company, the team I am recruiting for, what the role entails and the customer base. Then they match a good selection of candidates to choose from so filling the role is quick and easy.

Cavendish Maine has an aptitude for understanding our brief that stands out from many other recruitment companies.
They take time to understand our company culture, pay close attention to our team structure and work ethic. As importantly, they’re not afraid to challenge any objections if they think a candidate makes a good fit.
Over the years they’ve provided several successful candidates that are still with us today. They are a company I can trust to get results.
