Although we have not been working with Brad for long, he has made a big impact. He operates a service that is very focused on listening and delivering – two characteristics that are not always evident in recruitment – and actually feels more like headhunting than recruitment. We will definitely be using Brad and Altura going forward.

Director, CHPK

At Baily Garner quality is central to our success and quality people is a key part of this. Over the years we have established key relationships with a small number of trusted and reliable external agents such as Hadley who I have known personally for over 5 years. Over this time Hadley has importantly got to understand our business culture, values and recruitment needs, successfully appointing into a number of roles across the business over this period.

Partner, Baily Garner

I have worked with Hadley for a number of years, and he’s successfully placed several candidates into our Building Surveying team. Unlike other recruitment consultants, I’ve always found that he only puts forward candidates who he knows will fit in with our culture and team.

Director, Mcbains

Hadley has been a valued recruitment partner of Anstey Horne for many years. He has made several senior-level hires across the business and takes the time to understand our culture to match the most well-suited candidates based on both technical skills and personalities. His communication skills and honest, consultative approach to recruitment set him apart and I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Senior Director, Anstey Horne

We have used Hadley for many years at Belshaw and at previous companies. He gets to know the company and the individuals at the firm so he can best match the personalities of the candidates with the culture of the company. As we grow as a business, we will be relying on Hadley to find us great candidates.

Director, Belshaw Building Consultancy

Hadley has worked with F+G Building Surveying to deliver our recruitment and growth aspirations for the last 4 years, digesting the brief for each role and surfacing the best candidates for consideration. We have built a trusting relationship and Hadley is extremely easy to work with and understands the culture at F+G.

Director & Head of Building Surveying, Faithful + Gould

Hadley was excellent in helping me find my dream role in London. His personal and tailor-made approach to my needs was really refreshing! On top of all that he is truly a nice guy and I really felt like he wanted me to find a role that was the right fit for me.

Regional Director, Faithful+Gould

Hadley is a true professional and was excellent in finding my new role. His attention to detail was first class; recognising my skillsets, career aspirations and what I was looking for from a future employer. I found it extremely helpful to have developed a rapport with someone with his level of industry knowledge, who I could comfortably discuss career opportunities with and ensure that I found the right employer for me. I would highly recommend his services!

Associate Partner, Daniel Watney

Brad is an excellent person and recruiter. he listens to someone needs. He prepares thecandidate well & follows up. Definitely recommended to everyone.

Senior Fire Engineer, ARUP

Hadley's knowledge, enthusiasm and encouragement were hugely beneficial to me in securing my new role. Hadley was able to offer me unique insights into company I was seeking to join and to those individuals interviewing me, which allowed me to tailor my preparation, accordingly, helping me to relax into the process. I would enthusiastically recommend Hadley's services to any Building Surveying professional seeking a new opportunity in the sector.

Building Surveyor, Faithful + Gould

Hadley is an expert in recruiting Building Surveyors; his in-depth industry knowledge, approachability, and understanding of his client's ambitions are what sets him apart. My requirements were very specific, and Hadley went above and beyond to ensure I found a company better suited to my aspirations. I would undoubtedly recommend Hadley's services to any Building Surveyor, at any level, looking for their next opportunity.

Building Surveyor, McBains

Hadley was great during the recruitment process. He was professional from the outset and clearly had in-depth knowledge of the market and good contacts. During and after the interview process, he was supportive, regularly checking in to provide advice or just make sure everything was OK. I would definitely recommend Hadley.

Associate, Hollis

Hadley provided me with an excellent service and was transparent and not pushy at all. I explained the type of role I was looking for and he had just the one that suited me and therefore did not recommend other companies to increase his chance of earning a fee. Lovely genuine bloke and very communicative. Would highly recommend getting in contact even if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

Building Surveyor, Hallas & Co.

I cannot recommend Hadley highly enough. First and foremost, he is a true professional. I found it particularly refreshing that he actually listens to your aspirations and requirements from an employer and tailors his search accordingly. He has a wealth of industry knowledge and contacts and above all is a decent and genuine guy that makes what can be a stressful time a whole lot easier. It was great to have someone on hand to chat options through with that I felt genuinely cared about finding the best fit for me.

Senior Building Surveyor, Faithful + Gould

Hadley was recommended to me as 'one of the good guys’ by a colleague and I couldn’t put it better myself. He was able to give me a tailored short-list of prospective roles within a day and interviews were arranged for the following week with some great companies. I was kept up to date with regular, honest, and open feedback. Now I am settling into my new role, I am extremely grateful for all the support and advice Hadley gave along the way and would have no reservations in recommending him to others looking for a new opportunity in the surveying industry.

Senior Building Surveyor, HartDixon

Hadley couldn’t have done a better job of sourcing my latest move. Considering the difficulties of looking for a job when everything was remote, he hit the mark. Always available for a chat and brilliant and giving you the pep talk needed if a little nervous. Having had various recruiters approach me over the years, Hadley has never put forward roles that weren’t suitable, or promised something that simply wasn’t realistic. I knew I was always in good hands. I’d recommend his services to anyone tentatively or actively seeking alternative employment.

Associate Partner, Hart Dixon

Hadley is an incredibly personable recruiter with a great insight and knowledge into the building surveying profession and with extensive contacts in the industry. He is a true professional and definitely “one of the good guys.” We spoke a lot about the search being a process and he was very committed and determined about ensuring we found the right company and the right role. He acted solely in my best interests, was always available to be a sounding board for me and offered sage advice. I could not be happier with Hadley’s service and would highly recommend him to anyone considering a move.

Senior Building Surveyor, Paragon

Brad is an excellent recruiter. He helped me through the recruitment process with a high level of support. I would highly recommend Brad to any candidate or organisation, as he is an excellent people person with your interests in mind.

Fire Safely Engineer, International Fire Consultants

Within a matter of days from our initial engagement, Myles had already lined up two interviews with companies that I was very interested in pursuing opportunities with. I would highly recommend Myles and Altura Search for any placement and recruitment needs.

Senior Valuation Surveyor, Carter Jonas

Ben is literally the best recruiter I have connected with from start to finish. He went above and beyond and all I had to do was turn up to the interview and sell myself. He's a credit to his company and himself and I highly recommend connecting with him.

Assistant Cost and Commercial Manager, K2 Consultancy

Brad Porter is a very professional recruitment specialist with extraordinary detailing and follow-up skills. He has an exceptionally great attitude, and I would strongly recommend him to any candidate or organisation without hesitation.
