“I found the company so helpful, whenever I needed to know about my pay, or if I had any general queries, I knew I could always message Ellie and she would get back to me, even if it was out of work hours, I really have appreciated all the help Ellie has given me and I hope to work with her and the rest of the agency again soon.”

“Even during a pandemic, within hours of speaking with Michael I had multiple interested parties and interviews lined up for the following week. I would highly recommend Michael to any candidate or company that is looking for the correct fit. He identifies your needs and wants and places you accordingly. Fantastic service and a very professional recruiter.”
SENIOR SALES EXECUTIVE, MASTEEL UK
“Mike has been brilliant in finding me new employment. Within days of working with Comton Group, I had many interested parties and was interviewing within days even during these uncertain times.
“I highly recommend the service they provide and would not hesitate in using them again. Thanks for everything Mike (and Pete!)
“Keep up the good work.”
Internal Business Development, Langley Alloys
“It’s rare that you uncover a standout talent like Pete.
“Pete is amazing at his job! He knows his way around people, he is fantastic with his clients and goes well above and beyond to do whatever it takes to gets things done for his client.
“I went to Pete at Comton Group to help me find the next step in my career in the metal industry. His industry experience combined with his recruitment knowledge made the process of finding a new job ridiculously efficient. Taking the next step in your career and starting a new job can be daunting, but whether it was 9pm or early on a Saturday morning Pete was always available to ensure my questions were answered.
“I would definitely recommend Pete and Comton Group when considering your next step in your career.”

“Matt listened to what I needed in a job & helped me get a position where my work / life balance is the best it has been. Glad Matt found me the job I am now in. Professional service & pleasure to deal with.”

“I can’t speak highly enough of Matt. He worked tirelessly to get me back into work and found me a great job. Would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a new position.”
Business Development Manager, Servosteel
“Mike helped me secure my current role just over a year ago and I can confidently say he and the team at Comton Group are a cut above the rest.
“Prior to securing my current role, I found myself at a bit of a loss for what to do with myself. Anxious and lacking self confidence, I was struggling to pick myself up. After a few conversations with Mike and Pete, I was completely turned around.
“After a half an hour long initial conversation, they picked out my strongest qualities and were able to point me in the right direction based on these, but while doing this, they also allowed me to notice these qualities and to realise my own worth while on the job hunt.
“The video interviews were a god send. Mike and Pete got to the root of my experience and what I was looking for while at all times allowing me to feel comfortable and focused on the important things for potential employers, in addition to what I was looking for regarding my next role.
“An easy way to sum up Mike’s commitment: He had me lined up for two interviews within two weeks of getting in touch and I ended up accepting the first role I was offered, after my first interview, as he was spot on with the recommendation. I was actually offered a better role than the company were interviewing for, because of how well we fit for each other. That couldn’t have happened without Mike making the match.
“If you want a recruiter that genuinely cares about your situation, needs and aspirations and who is genuinely concerned with fighting your corner while you’re on the job hunt, give Mike or the guys at Comton Group a call.
Internal Account Manager, Durbin Metal Industries
“Pete provides a professional, fun and friendly approach to recruitment. A refreshing no nonsense approach with genuine knowledge of the industry sector.”
REYNOLDS AND LAW STAINLESS
“Michael gave me great help and support during my search for my next job, being very professional and giving great advice from each interview, following up after to find out how i got on. This has helped me achieve my dream job at a very well established company and a job that makes me very happy. Michael’s approach is definitely the best way forward in recruitment I can’t thank him enough for what he has done!”
SALES EXECUTIVE, SWISS STEEL UK
“Matt is a total asset to the industry. I’ve dealt with a lot of recruitment agencies over the last few years and most of them go quiet when a role they have in mind isn’t right for you. Matt paid real attention to what I needed in a new role, and had a real understanding of how I wanted to progress and was very good at keeping me updated at all stages. I couldn’t recommend Matt enough, not only is he good at what he does, he’s also a really nice guy. Thanks again.”
Internal Sales, CMT Steel Services
“I worked with Michael at Comton Group for a very short space of time. Michael went the extra mile to ensure he had positions available which resulted in the perfect role for me. I would highly recommend Michael and the team over at Comton Group for any metal needs! Thank you for making the process smooth and easy.”
Area Sales Manager, Westgate Stainless and Alloys
“Many thanks for your hard work in getting me the initial interview – the communication I’ve had from yourself has been reassuring compared to the standards I’ve seen from many local recruiters and I wish you the best for the future if our paths don’t cross at another point.”
“George is very skilled at what he does, found me a new role that was exactly what I was looking for in a relatively short space of time. Fully prepared me for interviews and everything is working out great. Top guy.”
