“Pivotal is my go to agency for recruitment and Justin was instrumental in placing me at my current role for at Amnet which I am very grateful as he managed to open my eyes to a world of possibilities that even I didn't see at the time...definitely recommend working with him”

Annie Merriman, Senior Product Sales Specialist, Amazon Advertising Platform at Amazon

“David and his team at Pivotal were amazing to work with. As I was transplant from the NYC market to London, David took measures to provide education and applicable guidance on navigating the UK marketplace, in addition to just sending role my way. David and the folks at Pivotal were proactive with opportunities and timely in following up for feedback. Most importantly, the quality of the companies they are working with is premium, each of the opportunities were within impressive and growing organisations. One of the key differentiators in working with Pivotal, was how deep and wide they went in sending over articles and information about each company as prep for meetings they set. I would highly recommend working with Pivotal to anyone looking to make a move within the market - or specifically who is new to the London market”


Hannah McLoughlin, Digital Account Manager at Amplifi UK 

“Pivotal was amazing from start to finish during my search for a new role. They didn't push every role on me but listened to what it was I was looking for. Chris matched the position I ended up accepting both for the skills required and the environment and 1 month into my new role I am so glad that he did. 

Unlike other recruiters they didn't hound me with calls, but always got in contact when they said they would. I don't think I'll be using Pivotal for a while now as they have done such a great job, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris and the team to anyone else.”

Eduardo Diaz-Ward, Optimisation Manager, at GroupM

“Working with Tom and Pivotal was an absolute pleasure. They have got a very professional approach, very familiar with the industry as well as up-to-date with its needs. Tom is very sociable and really takes time to get to know you well to understand what exactly you are looking for next. All offers they sends through are tailored to your CV. 

He is also very supportive throughout the job seeking process with supreme communication skills and always keen to help prior interviews providing useful material as well as securing feedback within reasonable time. 

I would highly recommend Pivotal and Tom to anyone who's looking for a new job.”

Bradley Yarrington, UK Sales Director at ChoiceStream

“Over the last ten years I've met a handful of recruitment agencies that are at the top of their game. Luke and the team at Pivotal are one of them, they works incredibly hard and takes real pride in his job. Luke coaches candidates well and genuinely cares about their next role. I wish him the best of luck in his successful career.”

Jackson Tobin, Senior Sales Manager at Tapad

“Justin and the guys at Pivotal have been instrumental in Tapad being able to set up the European office. He knows that start-ups require a certain type of personality and is extremely good at matching people that will fit in well with us. He has also managed to help friends of mine find roles they are really happy with. Having worked alongside Justin in the past, I know that he is more concerned with building a long term client as opposed to a quick win and he will speak honestly on all fronts (except about his golf skills, I've heard he's awful). If he says he knows someone who he thinks we will be good, then we can trust that it will be well worth our time meeting them”
