Whether you’re entering the job market, looking to take the next step or fancy a career change, we’re here to help.
Some recruiters will simply skim your CV, roughly match you to an advertised position and put you forward for the role. This is usually a waste of time for all concerned.

Thorough preparation is key, so we provide a comprehensive list of services before your job search begins…View Services

Whether you need to brush up on some interview techniques or require some business / industry insight to help you stand out from the crowd, we’re here to support you with expert advice and guidance throughout the recruitment process. And when there’s an offer on the table, we’ll work with you to ensure you receive the employment package you’re looking for.

How many times have you been offered a job then dropped like a hot stone by the recruiter as soon as you've accepted?
Chances are they’ve taken their fee and moved onto the next candidate. At DB Charles, we do things differently. Not only will we help you review and negotiate your contract, we’ll also advise you on career progression, settling in and passing your probation period, and in the worst case, offer advice on how to handle disciplinary action. We’re also here for post-termination support in the unlikely event that the role simply doesn’t work out or you’re facing the prospect of redundancy.View Services
I found David to be an exceptionally conscientious Recruitment Consultant whose approach was to ensure the right fit for both myself and my now employer. He took the time to fully understand and appreciate the role, from the opportunities for personal growth to any challenges or obstacles I might face.
DB Charles took the time to understand my experience, my expectations and what motivates me, and by taking that time to understand me as an individual I was put forward for a role that not only aligned with my skill set, but also my personal development goals. My experience of working with DB Charles Recruitment was very positive and through their encouragement my own self confidence has grown.
David is a reassuring, encouraging and reliable communicator who treated me as an individual, addressing any questions or concerns I had however small. I have recommended DB Charles Recruitment to friends looking for new challenges, and would recommend them to any business looking to recruit.
David helped me securing my first job after university. He was able to get me an interview quickly, provided support prior to and after starting my job, and managed to negotiate a higher salary. David also keeps me updated about how my employer believes I'm getting on during my probation period. A brilliant recruiter.
The level of service was great. I really enjoyed the journey from our first conversation to the wonderful news of getting the job. Always willing to work around me, even if that was at 11pm, the personal service I received helped me a lot. I would recommend DB Charles Recruitment to anyone looking for a job – the result I got was the best Christmas present I could have asked for!
David really took the time to dig into what I was looking for to make sure that the company would be a good fit for me and vice versa. I had a two-stage interview with the recruiting company and was offered the role by the time I had got home. David was consistent with relaying feedback I had received and prompt with arranging the interviews. I wasn’t ever sat wondering what was going on.
I was surprised at how friendly and helpful David was compared to other agencies I had dealt with, he made me feel very comfortable and at ease and within a few days I had an interview. Before my interview, I sat with David who again was friendly and actually calmed my nerves before the interview. After a 2nd interview, I got the job! I would highly recommend DB Charles recruitment as I feel I have got exactly what I was looking for from someone who cared about my needs.
From initial contact David made me feel at ease, finding a new job is stressful business, but David focused on what was right for me and I never felt any pressure from him. He guided me through my interview process and made sure I felt prepared and ready and I never felt that I was alone or out of my depth. David's follow up after each step of the process couldn't be faulted and it was very reassuring (even on the weekend of his Daughter's birth!) Not only did David support me through my intense interview process but after I was successful and started my new job, David's main priority was the ensure that I was happy and felt I had made the right decision for me. It is very clear that David genuinely cares about the candidates he works with. I'm three weeks into my new job and I still get texts just to check in on how I'm getting on!
It is very common for newly graduated Ph.D. students to graduate without a job, this was my story until I came in contact with DB Charles Recruitment Consultants. The CEO, David took a sincere interest in my cause and prepared me for interviews. Throughout the interview process, David was very supportive, called me to see how each stage of the interview went and was prompt in following up. Within my first month on the job, David kept in regular contact with me, calling each week to know how I was adapting to the new challenge. I strongly recommend DB Charles Recruitment to any jobseeker, I am very confident that David’s candidate-centred approach to recruitment will help other candidates to find a good job and also to have this important support that I had.
DB Charles offer a very professional service, with excellent feedback throughout the recruitment process. Would highly recommend.
Best recruiter I've ever used. David found my dream job, supported me through the whole process and I couldn’t be happier with the service. I would highly recommend him.
I think I was as shocked as David was when we had managed to go from our first call together to a job offer within 4 days. I am 2 months into my new role, and David still regularly checks in. David brings a human touch to the recruitment process that I've never seen replicated. As thorough in his dealings as he is approachable as a person.
David is an amazing recruiter. From first contact, he understood exactly what I was looking for and how to match my skill set and experience. He kept me informed at each stage of the process and was very descriptive in terms of what his clients requirements were for the right candidate. I would highly recommend DB Charles Recruitment and am so grateful for his introduction into my new role.
David was very informative of the role, had a detailed understanding of all client objectives and was passionate about finding a fit that worked for all involved. I would recommend David, not only based on his professionalism and industry knowledge but also his manner, enthusiasm and honesty.
David was incredibly helpful and supportive whilst putting me forward for the role. At the time, it was my very first job interview for a full time position after leaving University and I was incredibly nervous. I was also in need of a few alterations being made to the interviewing process. This was due to a few health issues with myself at the time. David managed to have all of the appropriate measures put in place for me and offered me lots of advice. He was very reachable and approachable with any questions and he was incredibly speedy with relaying information back to me. David is absolutely brilliant at what he does and is an incredibly friendly person. I cannot recommend him enough.
From first contact to a job offer within a week! David found my CV online and after the initial phone call that followed I was left thinking 'how did he match me so well to that role?!'. Almost three months into my new career now and absolutely no regrets. Overall David was a pleasure to work with, representing both my interests and the employers with a high level of professionalism whilst still coming across friendly and approachable. Furthermore, I have never had the level of aftercare from a recruiter as shown by David. He is great at what he does and should the worst happen, I'd be very happy to work with him again.
Working with DB Charles during my job search was a rewarding experience. Not only did David find me a job that was extremely suited to my needs, he also provided beneficial guidance at all times. David has been very supportive throughout the whole process and made me feel at ease during what is normally a stressful and testing time. Meeting David face to face gave me the opportunity to understand the role in more depth. Not only was I given help throughout the job application process, I have also been contacted regularly since working in the role to check in and make sure things are going well. I am very grateful that David's assistance got me to where I am now and would highly recommend him to others.
David has been a wonderful help in guiding me through the process of finding my new career. They are friendly, attentive and strive to make sure that they understand exactly what you are looking for. I would highly recommend to anyone.
I can't thank DB Charles Recruitment and David enough for their support during every stage of the recruitment process. David's support, interest and ideas made the process so much easier. He was always available when I needed his help, and he always made brilliant suggestions about how I could prepare for the different stages of the interviewing process. With David's help, I landed my dream role in four weeks from starting to look for a new job. I highly recommend DB Charles Recruitment's services.
AMAZING! I cannot recommend them enough. After speaking with David initially my confidence instantly grew. Without his help and feedback during my short period of unemployment it would be a different story for me right now. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity I received through DB Charles Recruitment despite a job offer not materialising. Out of all the recruiters I've worked with in my career David is up there with the best. If your business needs top class employees DB Charles Recruitment won't just find them, they'll send you someone fully prepared to get the job done!
David is a fantastic person who offers huge support during all aspects of the application/recruitment process. He spent time getting to know me and my goals, ensuring I was put forward for the right role and company. We had in depth conversations each step of the way including after being offered a great role. David invests in his candidates, making sure they are focused on key areas for each part of the process and that they are applying for the best position. He gives the impression that this is more than just a job for him, and is great at building your confidence ahead of an interview, which is massively appreciated.
David was really friendly during the recruitment process! He was really helpful before my interview which I am really grateful for. He made sure to understand exactly what career I was looking for, which has set me up nicely with my current career! Thank you for your help David.
What can I say? David from DB Charles Recruitment is the most skilled and professional individual I have ever met, without any exaggeration. Not only did he help me find an incredible job, but also supported me in every step of my hiring process and even after. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime. Go with DB Charles guys.

DB Recruitment is an excellent company. David has not only found me a great opportunity with an amazing company he was attentive and helpful though the whole process.
I highly recommend DB Charles Recruitment. David is very professional and passionate about what he does. He is also very supportive, reliable and an excellent communicator. I got the job I wanted and cannot thank David enough for all his support and encouragement.
Emailed my CV to DB Charles and 1.5 weeks later I secured my new role. David kept me up to date throughout the process and always checked in on me. Very speedy and and helpful. Genuinely takes care of his clients.
Where other recruitment agents use a scatter-gun approach or seem to reply on matching keywords, David takes a thoughtful, context-based approach to sourcing talent. I found his detail-oriented and personable MO to be unique in my experience and refreshing in a very positive way. On a personal level, David assisted me through a significant pivot point in my career and I'm very grateful for his support and advocacy.
The job I applied for through DB Charles was the first I approached since completing university. To say I was nervous about the process was an understatement but David was so lovely and was a great show of support through the whole process. He was quick to reply and constantly checking in to see how I was feeling about each step of the application, and the information he shared with me meant that I was completely informed and relaxed approaching my interview. I could honestly say I have this company to thank for my first major career step and if anyone is looking to enter the working world you should start by looking here.
I can highly recommend DB Charles Recruitment, they were a personal and professional service, that helped connect me (a recent STEM graduate) with an excellent company. If you're a company looking for good candidates or a recent graduate looking for an opportunity, I cannot recommend them enough. 10/10.
David helped me get back into employment after being made redundant. I can honestly say this doesn't feel like the typical "Recruitment Agency". David has a way of making you feel very welcome and reassured; which is what is sometimes needed when being out of work. Excellent service provided and I've felt very much supported before being offered my new position and throughout. Thanks so much David, you've been a great help. I would recommend DB Charles Recruitment a thousand times over as they are like I say, not your typical Recruitment Agency.
David called me up and found me an ideal fit new position in very difficult circumstances. He's very responsive and efficient. The whole thing was really smooth and quick. Can recommend!
David is the kindest recruiter I have come across. David is committed and diligent in his approach to finding and securing a role that suits you. For someone like me entering the market after a break, he showed a lot of respect and patience towards me and has helped me build up my confidence. David guided me through every step of the way offering me key advice, and was always ready to offer up his time for some added prep. Indeed, within a month of connecting with David, I found myself working for a wonderful tech company! Both on a professional and personal level, I am so happy to have had the pleasure of meeting and working with David, and couldn't recommend anyone better to help an individual in their job search!
My experience with DB Charles Recruitment was very different from other recruitment agencies. David kept me informed with the progress of my application and supported me every step of the way. Even after I signed the job contract he stayed connected with me via text messages and he helped alleviate any worries and concerns I might have about starting a new job during the current uncertain time.
I had the pleasure of meeting with David to discuss a role he was recruiting for. I believe the key skills of a recruiter are to be able to truly understand their candidate's needs and capabilities, honestly and objectively match them to a role and guide/lead them through the process. This is not an easy skill set to acquire, let alone perfect, and David is one of the handful of recruiters who I believe has truly mastered them. I had a niche set of requirements and an equally niche background, David quickly got to grip with these and understood very early on the perfection of my fit to the role he was recruiting for - his astute perception in this was a master stroke. His expertise in his briefing of me as a candidate, his deep knowledge of his client and his understanding of the role meant he was able to set me up perfectly to be at my best in the interview process and showcase my skills, knowledge and experience. This was invaluable. At each point this briefing was followed up with detailed and engaging conversation, far beyond the normal "how did it go" tick box check in, this was purposeful insight gathering to feed into the next stage and keep himself appraised of all the important data points. He sensed the need for patience, as this was a critical next step for me and had to be right - another brilliant piece of perception through engaging and detailed conversation. He was constantly mindful of the bigger picture for me and my family and my personal circumstances and requirements. In the final stages of negotiation, he was honest and straightforward and managed my expectations expertly. I felt he genuinely had my best interests at heart throughout the process. I got the job I wanted, and it is in a big part thanks to David's skill and expertise in engaging with me and guiding me with sheer brilliance through the long and challenging process. I am incredibly grateful for his expertise, patience and skill in helping me secure this opportunity. I would recommend DB Charles Recruitment as a candidate, and even better I get to work with David as a client. I can't wait.
David is just so excellent and has done an amazing job throughout my recruitment process. He is very patient, helping and motivating, even after this current situation that we are in. He made sure I get the best job that I wanted. I highly recommend DB Charles Recruitment with the best recruiter that I have come across. Thank you so much David, you are the best.
My experience with DB Charles Recruitment as a whole was very pleasant from the outset. The entire journey with David from pre-interview to post interview I was assisted with support, advice, regular updates, commitment until finally with David's help we managed to secure me a great job. Definitely 5 stars for quality service, I would highly recommend David and DB Charles Recruitment for their professionalism and their resilience in helping me find my ideal job. Thank you David and team.

He kept me informed of the whole process and explained everything in detail. He made me feel like an individual and adapted his service according to my specific needs.
