Talentia Review from Qualitech

Josh Brandon - Qualiteach

Formulate did an outstanding job of finding us the perfect person for our finance division. They took the time to really understand our business and culture to find someone that not only met the requirements of the role but fit into the dynamic of the company.

Talentia Review from Hopwood College

Paul Pritchard - Hopwood College

Using Dovetail and Slate is unlike most other agencies. One of the things that impress me is the way they try to get to know your management/leadership style, your team culture and college values, this enables them to look for candidates that will suit you.

We are happy with the operatives, and know we can get good quality labour when we use Pivotal. Their consultants are always checking up on the guys on site to see if there's anything they can help with. Pivotal has been great and we look forward to working with them moving forward.

Garry Lee - Options Skills

Dovetail & Slate have been my exclusive, first choice agency since June 2020 after Dovetail provided us with one of the highest quality placements we’ve had at a fraction of the market price. I’ve worked with many an agency since setting up Options-Skills in 2013; I can wholeheartedly say that Dovetail & Slate have been the best. Heroes among thieves.

Elise Lamberton - Warwickshire College Group

They’ve been extremely reliable in delivering candidates on an honest timeframe. If they’ve got a job to do, they’ll make sure they do it to a timeframe that suits us. On the occasion they can’t do something they’ll be completely up front about that.
