At Cirrus Selection, we always endeavour to deliver a service that exceeds the high standards that we set ourselves. Word of mouth and referrals have always played an important part of our success and below are a few examples of how we have achieved these with both candidates and clients.


Karthik - Test Architect - Electronics 

David was incredibly communicative and helpful for the duration of my interactions with him. He made sure to keep me well informed throughout my recruitment process and has assisted me throughout the process of successfully finding my new job.
David is very knowledgeable in engineering recruitment and provided valuable advice which helped me find new employment. I would highly recommend David and Cirrus Selection.


Ike - Systems Engineer - Defence Contractor

David helped me through a difficult recruitment process and I couldn't not recommend anyone more. From putting me at ease and giving me some confidence in the preparation for my interview up until my start date. Especially helpful in linking me with the hiring company and insuring constant contact with the hiring manager through security clearance.


Head of HR - Defence Engineering Client

For the last 8 years I have worked very closely with David in a recruitment supplier capacity. We have an established relationship and formed a valuable partnership in finding industries best talent. David has always shown a genuinely passion in his approach to recruiting my positions, maintaining his full commitment at all times and delivering highly skilled individuals. I would happy to recommend David to any organisation looking for an effective recruitment consultant that delivers consistently at a high standard.


Danny - Data Engineer - Defence Prime Contractor

Personally, I feel that any recruiter should be friendly, professional, genuine and helpful. Steve certainly excels in all these categories! I was extremely impressed with the attention I was given throughout the entire recruitment process, especially around the interview stage where the resources and phone calls I had from Steve certainly made the difference. Keep up the great work Steve! Any candidate would be lucky to have you as a recruiter.


Joel - Systems Engineer - Defence Prime Contractor

Steve is an outstanding recruiter who has helped me enormously during my job search, going above and beyond expectations to assist me. Steve builds strong relationships with candidates and employers alike and I will definitely be seeking Steve's guidance in future career moves within the aerospace and defence industry. I would recommend Steve wholeheartedly to any candidates seeking a knowledgeable, dedicated and approachable recruiter.


Phil - Principal Systems Engineer - Defence Prime Contractor

Steve is a great recruiter offering sound advice to get through the toughest interview's. Steve is up to date on many of the 'hot topics' of defence and has a keen interest in the subject. A worthwhile call for anybody looking for the a new role.


Pete - Business Development Manager - Defence Prime Contractor

Steve was absolutely crucial with mentoring and developing my interview techniques and was always happy to discuss the role in as much detail as required at the time. Knowledgeable, approachable & dedicated are only but a few of pro words which describe the type of relationship that I experienced while working with Steve as a candidate.

I would whole heartedly recommend Steve to any future candidates or campaign managers knowing the calibre of this outstanding professional. I wish Steve the very best for the future.


Peter - Managing Director - Aerospace Engineering Client

I have worked with Steve Pickering for a number of years, both as a candidate (I have been placed by him) and for recruiting staff (I can’t remember how many staff Steve has supplied me with). I believe that this recommendation is long overdue.

Steve’s performance has always been excellent, as a candidate he works hard to find a suitable opportunity, making direct approaches to companies if necessary. He prepares candidates well by researching the companies and as he spends time to build relationships with hiring managers / interviewers, he passes on hints and tips that wouldn’t normally be available.

As the hiring manager, Steve works to understand the technical requirements needed for the role, but even more importantly he understands the type of person I need to fit within the culture of my business.

Whether candidate or hiring manager, Steve will be an asset to you.


Sandra - HR & Resourcing Manager - Aerospace Engineering Client

Steve is the ultimate professional and a great communicator. He knows his business markets exceptionally well, keeps himself well informed and he soon became a close business partner in filling 'hard to fill' vacancies. This reduced critical vacancies to the business by reducing timescales and therefore end costs by replacing contractors. I have no reservations in recommending Steve and look forward to working with him in the future.


Iraklis - Head of Business Development - Space & Satellite Company

Steve is a very experienced recruitment specialist with great understanding of defence and aerospace industries. His approach is proactive, highly focused, efficient and with great results. He was able to quickly identify candidate companies that suited my profile and the result was spectacular as the very first company he identified was a direct match. I am very grateful to Steve and I highly recommend his professional ability and expertise.


Andy - Research & Development Manager - Defence Research Company

Steve successfully supported me through the recruitment and interview process while seeking new employment.  For someone, who had not sought new employment for a few years, it was an uncertain time but in Steve found the consummate professional, friendly and engaging and immediately putting me at ease and helping to allay any pre-interview worries or concerns.  Steve was regularly on hand to answer any questions, provide helpful background information, advice or guidance on the recruitment process and interview techniques.  With a deep knowledge of the industry and hiring Company, Steve successfully helped me navigate the path to securing 4 interviews in a little over 2 weeks followed by a number of firm job offers.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Cirrus Recruitment to job seekers or clients alike.  


David - Algorithm Systems Engineer - Defence Prime Contractor

All of the positive qualities required by a successful recruitment consultant are exhibited by Steve. He is intelligent, hard-working and has excellent communication skills. He only contacts me when necessary, and only communicates relevant concise information. He has helped simplify what can be a very long and stressful process. I have very much enjoyed working with Steve and would not hesitate to contact him in the future should I wish to seek a new opportunity.


Tim - Principal Systems Engineer - Government Agency

"Steve was very thorough in understanding my requirements for a new role. His service involved thorough interview prep and pre reading, making sure I was prepared for any eventuality. Would thoroughly recommend"


Robert – Electro Optic System Engineer - Aerospace Prime Contractor

After applying for an Optical position Steve initially contacted me, from this very first conversation he came across as honest, knowledgeable and supportive. Once the recruitment process had begun, Steve was full of advice and suggestions. This gave me confidence when the process had begun. We talked and emailed many times and Steve came across as very approachable and always offered suggestions regarding the company.

Even when both the initial telephone and second interview did go to plan, Steve was positive and offered support. He installed belief in myself about where I should be in my career. Any issues, he pointed in the right direction. After the position offer, he did not “wash his hands”, but kept the lines of communication open.

I would recommend both Cirrus and Steve, as both are very professional in the recruitment process.
