John is professional, energetic, knowledgeable and an all-round excellent recruitment professional. And I use the term professional to highlight his rarity value in the industry he operates in. Where most recruiters search and hope, or simply treat technical skills as acronyms to google, John seeks to understand what you need. But his biggest skill from our perspective is his ability to properly listen. He listens intently to your requirements - and I assume he does the same with candidates too. John has helped us source some very, very niche skills very, very quickly. I'd recommend his services to anyone in the ERP space.

Managing DirectorSAP Consultancy

Working with John was a fantastic experience, he has excellent people and business relations skills. John is a professional and thorough recruiter who operates with the highest integrity. I have known him for a long time now and there is not much he does not know about the SAP industry from a recruitment perspective. It’s always a pleasure hearing from John. I hope to work with him again in the future and highly recommend him as a recruitment consultant to everyone.

SAP Test Lead

I recently started to search for work having taken some time out to be with my young children and working on other short projects. John contacted me about a role. He was very affable, open and very different to other recruiters and agencies. John was very easy to talk to and was genuinely interested in my individual needs as a working mother, rather than a billable client. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with John, he is diligent, passionate and genuinely listens to
the needs of both project and consultant. I would highly recommend Global Tech Collective

SAP Business Change Manager

John is one of the most talented recruiters I have come across in recent times. He made the whole recruiting process comfortable by being very communicative and punctual throughout. He even took the time to make sure I was settling in well and enjoying my new role. Working with John has been a real pleasure.

VoIP Engineer

The whole experience, from first introductions to accepting the offer, has been professional and personable and it’s felt like you’ve not only operated with the interests of your client in mind but you've wanted the best outcome for all parties. I’ve found you to be someone of his word, if you’ve said you’ll call you have done so and communications throughout have been exemplary. I cannot thank you enough for what I consider to have been an exceptional experience. Thank you for your tailored approach - you’re a credit to the profession.

Business Change Lead

I strongly recommend John as a recruitment consultant. He is professional, efficient and in my experience, worked with some tight deadlines that other recruitment agencies have not been able to match. John made the whole process quick and easy with frequent updates, great communication and organisation. I look forward to working with John in the future.

SAP Instructional Designer

John provides a different experience and service. He is proactive and sources candidates of very high quality. His insight into the different role requirements and his ability to make candidates 'on paper' come alive is refreshing. He is great at managing the candidate experience throughout, making it easy for the hiring manager and engaging for participants. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Head of Talent-Management Consulting Firm

"John exceeded all my expectations of a recruitment agent to place me in my current role. Not only did he very carefully select people to put forward, so that both sides of the equation were a match, he acted as a mentor throughout the process, talking through my goals. I would highly recommend John for his thoughtful, warm and diligent approach."

Senior Learning Designer

“What stands out with John is that he has a knack of knowing the exact sort of person we are after, so rather than him just read a job spec, he takes a lot of time to ask the right questions, to eek out not just the skills and experience we want, but the right fit for our organisation."

DirectorSAP Silver Partner Consultancy

"I have had the pleasure of working side by side with John in a past life and have always considered him to be a very capable individual in his field.

Since he placed me in my current role I’ve now had experience of this first hand.

John was extremely professional at all times and only made contact with me to discuss new opportunities that were a perfect match. He took the time to explain all aspects of the role and was able to provide me with constructive feedback and actionable advice when it came to preparing my CV.

I was impressed with how John was able to see how my versatile skill set could match with his client’s requirements and having struggled to pinpoint exactly what I was looking for this was a valuable part of the experience and something that in my opinion puts John a level above his competitors."

Customer Success ManagerSAP Silver Partner Consultancy

"John Hawker is a professional in his field. Understanding the client’s requirement in detail and investing the time in researching an individual’s profile to find the right match. Given that approach it was no surprise to me that the rest of the process to engage with a client and qualify the opportunity was a breeze. I highly recommend John Hawker and I will personally stay in close contact into the future as I’m certain we will find more opportunities."

Data Migration Lead

"The great thing about John and Global Tech Collective... is John! All the way through the recruitment process, he took the time to not only understand my career requirements but also me as a person ensuring that the role was a perfect fit all round. From the initial call to my first day and beyond, I feel very lucky to have had John's support and advice and I highly recommend him and Global Tech Collective to anyone looking to take on a new adventure. He absolutely rocks!"

Senior Learning Designer

John really listens to what his candidates are looking for and ensures that he finds the right position for them. I can’t fault John for his professionalism, his approach and his attention to detail in finding a role that was right for me, and I am loving my new job. I would have no hesitation in recommending John.

Payroll Implementation Consultant

"A colleague recommended John Hawker at Global Tech Collective to assist us in searches for some contractors with quite specific skillsets, where I had been struggling to find suitable candidates. John took the time to discuss our quite specific requirements, learn about the company culture and our team ways of working before providing a very strong short list of candidates. From provision of candidates, to interview, negotiation of contracts and post appointment follow up, the process is managed professionally, with humour and without a hard sell (thankfully!). If you have resourcing needs for a technical or business project, I would definitely recommend John / GTC as your recruitment partner."

Business Transformation Director

"I first approached John in response to a position I had seen advertised. On speaking with John however, he took the time to gain a full understanding of the type of role and organisation I sought. From this he was able to advise that the initial position of interest may not be well suited, and instead directed me to an alternative position (and business) that would better fit my skills and aspirations. John's advice ultimately resulted in a job offer and I've been in post for a month and am very happy in my new role. I'm very thankful to John for taking the time to thoroughly understand my aims and aspirations and for his input and guidance in helping me find the right position."

Agile Project Manager

"Working with John is like working with an extension of your own organisation, it is so seamless in terms of cultural fit and gaining an understanding of what is needed. John is a pleasure to work with, communication is excellent and timeliness to respond is first class. John’s knowledge of the industry is superb and he will always keep me updated with progress, challenges and give an honest opinion of what I am asking for. Having worked with many recruiters, I cannot recommend John highly enough."

Lead Consultant

"As a candidate working with Global Tech Collective it was one of the best recruitment processes I have ever experienced! It's clear John isn't just trying to find candidates to fill a role, he is focused on the best fit for both role, company and individual! John is an absolute testament to his profession. He was friendly, supportive, and very diligent with excellent communication working to an extremely high standard. He demonstrated a strong understanding and empathy for both the company he was recruiting on behalf of and myself as a candidate. John not only took the time to understand my skills, experience, and knowledge but also my needs and my aspirations. Once successful John’s dedication and support did not stop there and he continued to be a pillar of support throughout. I would highly recommend Global Tech Collective to candidates and companies alike."
