October 2012 Client Feedback: When I contacted Betts Recruitment, I was in a position of almost total ignorance about how to source a pilot with the right skills and experience for what we needed. Fiona invested a lot of her time explaining and clarifying the process, current market conditions, pilots’ expectations, training requirements and information a whole host of other areas, all of which was enormously helpful and much appreciated. Once we gave the ‘go ahead’ for recruitment to start, we were presented with a good range of CVs from clearly well-qualified applicants within a very sensible timeframe. My own perception of Betts is of a very customer focused organisation which definitely goes ‘the extra mile’ to help its clients, does what it says it’s going to do with maximum efficiency and minimum fuss, and does it all for a very reasonable rate. A pleasure to work with, thank you. (HR Manager, hiring a Pilot for their Chairman’s Private Plane)

Just wanted to also say how much I value the people you have working with you. Truly great people, a rarity in this day and age when Candidates send out CV’s to never hear from anyone on the other end. I sometimes think in this fast paced business life that we are losing the finer points. That business is people dealing with people, respect, dignity, understanding these are some of the keys to success.

Congratulations from my side on your spot-on guidance."
