He stayed in touch throughout the recruitment process and followed up after I began my new job to see how I was settling in. If you work in this area of education and are looking to recruit or move on from your current job this is the place to start.

He has kept in touch with me at all stages of the recruitment process and has been extremely helpful to me.
Many thanks Nick!
iSAMS Reporting Manager
I was contacted by ESP regarding a potential contract, and from the first phone call over a year ago, to our continued communications they have always been courteous, professional and informative. Nick who is one of the Senior Consultants was especially helpful when organising my CV, paperwork and interviews before I started. He has also negotiated a number of extensions to my contract including a pay rise on my latest renewal.
Will, Marysia, Lewis and the whole team have also been very helpful when dealing with any queries I have had and they always go out of their way to ensure that I am always paid on time.
I would definitely recommend ESP to any contractors as they go the extra mile to make sure everything is in place, before and during the time you work for them.
Nick has been amazing and has supported me whilst I was looking for my next career move. He was always available if i had any questions or queries and went above and beyond when I was going through the hiring process with my new role. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I would not be in this role I am in today without his persistence and expertise.
just wanted to drop you an email to comment on the excellent service I have received from Steve. From the very beginning of the recruitment process, Steve has been professional, helpful, very responsive in communications. Ive been especially impressed by the updates I have been sent about the progress with the application without me having to chase once! Its a pleasure nowadays as this sort of service is quite rare and I feel its important to be acknowledged. Regardless of the outcome of my upcoming interview, I have been very happy to deal with ESP.
