    Kind Words From Our Clients & Candidates

    What some of our clients & candidates have to say about SDW

    ECU Line have been working with SDW Recruitment for several years now and they remain our first choice partner in the Recruitment Market. We find the service provided by SDW to be professional, personal and specific to our requirements with the in depth knowledge they have for the Shipping Industry.

    Having never dealt with recruitment agencies before SDW, I was a little apprehensive when Kay contacted me about a position she thought was suited to me. However Kay kept me fully informed throughout the process from interview to start date, she was professional at all times and a pleasure to deal with.

    I am looking forward to starting my new role. Thanks again for all your help, support and feedback throughout the process. You put other agencies to shame.

    We have always found SDW’s industry knowledge and understanding to be second to none. SDW take the time to understand our business and as such only provide candidates who would fit well within our operation. We have filled several key positions from candidates provided by SDW, all of whom have become essential members of our team

    I just want to put it on record that Kay has been brilliant and is a credit to your team. From the first conversation with assisting me with my CV to the final part of getting me an interview the service has been fantastic. Kay understood my requirements of wanting to get a foot in the door of a shipping company and acted upon it quickly. Even after not getting the first position she kept going to secure me other interviews. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you as a recruiter or to use you again. I wish you all every success and thank you for getting me a role I never thought I would get.

    With the right type of candidates being presented this expertise from SDW  had helped us fill a variety of roles within our Company to help us grow and become more successful. Whether you are a Employer looking to recruit or a individual looking for a new position within the Shipping Industry I would highly recommend the service offered by SDW Recruitment.

    SDW Recruitment has an excellent understanding of the shipping industry, and provide a professional service, putting forward suitable applications of pre-interviewed candidates, who have the relevant experience we look for.

    UTi have utilised the services of SDW for almost 10 years now, in which time they have never failed to deliver an excellent service. SDW has a great understanding of the freight industry and the Consultants take the time not only to understand the role we are recruiting for but to get a good feel for our company and values.

    The knowledge & professionalism that SDW consistently demonstrate is unsurpassed. This, along with SDW’s ability to understand our requirements & tailor themselves to our needs, combines to create an overall level of service which no competitor has been able to get close to matching.

    We have utilised the services of SDW for many years now and they have just successfully filled a role that was proving very difficult to source candidates with the specific experience we required.
