You don’t want to hear me going on about how good I am at what I do.

I’ll let these guys do it instead.

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.

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

After struggling to find a suitable opportunity over a period of months and dealing with recruiters who didn’t seem to understand my ambitions, I was fortunate enough to have been contacted by John. Not only did he take the time to fully understand what I was looking for he did so in a friendly and personable way. In doing so, he identified the perfect opportunity and then worked tirelessly to ensure I was fully prepared and supported, even working weekends to do so as the interview was short notice. Upon the interview concluding, it was clear John is an excellent recruiter as the opportunity couldn’t have been a better match and I excitedly accepted the role. Afterwards, he stayed in contact to ensure there were no issues with onboarding and we have spoken several times since to ensure I am settling in well. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a more competent, friendly and supportive recruiter.

Business Transformation Consultant

I had the pleasure of working with Global Tech Collective (John) from the candidate side. The experience was professional, friendly and honest. It felt like working with an old friend and with someone who understood not only the clients requirements, but mine as a candidate as well as my suitability for the role, which I was very happy to have accepted. I would recommend John highly, and it was refreshing to experience a totally unique recruitment experience.

Workday Training Manager

From the moment John contacted me about a couple of potential roles, I felt he had my best interests in mind. He took time to understand what I was looking for and provided great support and advice on every step of the interviewing and selection process. John is different, in a good way! I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again as he’s one of the good guys.

Business Change Manager

From the first time John connected with me about an opportunity, he has displayed integrity and professionalism. His engaging manner and communication style, made the entire recruitment process enjoyable, and with his support and coaching I was offered a role at a top consultancy. He is extremely patient, transparent and clearly a specialist in his field. I will continue to work with GTC for all my future hiring needs as I have been nothing but impressed with John and his service. Thanks for all your help John and the congratulations gift was a lovely touch!

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.

This is the best job advert I’ve ever seen! I wish I could be in a position to apply for the ERP Training Manager but I just had to provide that feedback. Thank you so much!

What I like most about working with John is the fast and instant communication. No needless questions and repeating of information that is already stated on consultant documents. Straight forward communication is key working with John. I admire his level of professionalism and he has great industry knowledge as well as great customer service.. He not only caters for his client requirements, but he also builds and maintains regular relations with his contractors. He always makes time to discuss issues and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. John always provides precise and valuable information which enables me to provide a quality service for my client.

SAP FICO Consultant

I’ve known John in a professional capacity for about ten years, and in that time he has become the one recruiter that I will always answer the telephone to. He’s professional, friendly and never pushy, instead taking the time to get to know you, your goals and your skillset. He then uses this knowledge to match you with a role that he’s put the same amount time and effort into understanding. As a candidate, you know that if John calls you about a role, you will want to go to the interview. As an employer, if he sends you a CV, you will want to talk to the candidate – it’s really that simple. When I was thinking about a new role last year, John was the only recruiter that I contacted, and sure enough he came up with a perfect match shortly afterwards. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

SAP Security Consultant

Ok so I don’t know you however I love your ethos and approach to recruitment. You are a breath of fresh air. Just wanted to acknowledge this. I am a bit of an old hand at all this stuff and a bit of an observer so wanted to reach out and say hey!

SAP Training Manager

I have been contracting for about 30 years and have encountered many agencies during that time. John Hawker of Global Tech Collective does have a rather unusual and very pleasant way of doing business in contrast to most others. My field is Cutover and the opportunities that John has passed my way have genuinely been well chosen and good matches to my CV, skill set and aspirations and in good quality companies. I suspect this works the other way too in that John chooses CV’s carefully to pass on to end Customers – as opposed to just flooding them with CV’s that have one or two key words in them, which many agencies do. When I have been placed in Contracts by John he has continued to take an interest in how well the contract is working out for me – rather than the almost rude disinterest that many agencies have whilst you are a convenient billing vehicle for them. I have secured multiple good quality contracts with John and will continue to use him as my preferred agent.
