Now that the recruitment process is over I wanted to comment about the exceptional level of service provided by Sarah and Rob at Robert Barton Associates. They were professional, knowledgeable, generous, compassionate and motivating; I truly believe that their involvement helped me perform to my full potential. While I am sure that you are aware of Sarah and Rob's qualities, I hope that this provides you with some useful feedback from a interviewee's perspective.
— Successful Applicant, 2014
Your input was greater - significantly greater - than that offered by one of the major recruiters who would send us details of anyone within driving distance of our office, regardless of their suitability... Your input during the discussion of remuneration packages was also greatly appreciated.
— Director, Regional IFA

Private school

The project

We were approached by the headmaster of a prestigious private school on behalf of the Board of Governors and senior management team to conduct, collate and report on a survey carried out to ascertain parent satisfaction across all year groups.


Due to the success in the implementation of this confidential report we were asked to repeat the exercise three years later where positive feedback from parents was consistent across all year groups.
