As recruitment specialists, our satisfaction comes from a job well done. But we can’t hide the fact that it’s doubly pleasing when one of our clients or candidates takes the time and trouble to write and congratulate us. Here are just a few of the unsolicited testimonials we’ve received from people who, thanks to Langton Howarth, found the right person for a scientific job, or found the job they were looking for.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone looking to further their career. During my time preparing for the numerous interviews, Ben played a pivotal role in ensuring that I was well briefed on the role and any pit falls there might be. His attention to detail has provided me with valuable guidance during these preparations. He always called when he said he would and made the effort to call after a suitable time had elapsed following an interview. Ben shows great knowledge in his field of expertise and I believe he would make a great ambassador for the recruitment industry. He has been well organised, collaborative, highly motivated, passionate and above all extremely professional in his approach to getting the job done. Ben has restored my faith in the recruitment industry, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my friends or family.
Ben recruited me into my current role. I have never worked with such a professional head-hunter before, Ben is very friendly, punctual and helpful; with great patience throughout the whole process I would recommend Ben highly to anyone who is looking for their next career move.
The team at Langton Howarth was instrumental in filling a recent sales opening I had in Europe. They assisted with defining the role requirements and then set off to bring forward qualified candidates. Oliver Gill was excellent in finding qualified candidates and arranging interviews. Oliver’s persistence and doggedness was noteworthy to me. When I got distracted by other things, Oliver put me back on task to make recruiting progress. In the end, because it is results that matter, we hired an excellent salesperson who met our role requirements precisely. This would not have happened without Oliver and the team at Langston Howarth. I recommend them highly!
A massive thank you to Ben Atherton, recruiter extraordinaire! Ben will take the time to research your background, listen carefully to understand your needs, researches thoroughly and efficiently to find you the right post according to your requirements. He found me an amazing opportunity which I have accepted. I found Langton Howarth to be a great supportive team, professional throughout the interview process and I was impressed by the great care and diligence shown at the highest level even by their Managing Director Emma Howarth. I would highly recommend Langton Howarth; they are the best recruiters in the market currently in my opinion.
I found working with Ben very professional, thorough and supportive. He ensures he understands your requirements and works closely with you to find the right placement, I would definitely recommend Ben and Langton Howarth
Emma, It was really nice to meet you at the ELRIG conference. As someone who is just starting their career in biomedical research, and has little insight into the scientific community, I found the Networking workshop useful, enjoyable and insightful. The advice given by you and the other speakers was very valuable as well. Thank you so much.
While having the opportunity to liaise with Ben Atherton, he is extremely professional and helpful when it comes to finding your next career step. Thank you so much for your help. I would highly recommend this excellent recruiter.
I feel Ben’s encouragement and advise was a big factor in getting a new job role. He gave me extra confidence and sound advice when attending multiple interviews. Highly recommend, thanks Ben!
Job hunting is never much fun! However Ben made the process extremely straightforward and I’m delighted to say I’m just about to start the role he put me forward for. From sending me relevant and concise info around the interviews to acting as a sounding board for my career plans he always kept me in the loop during the process and it was a pleasure to work with him. It was clear that he knew the people hiring personally and had thought a lot about what they were looking for so we were able to discuss the role in depth before I even applied. If and when I’m looking to expand my new team I’ll definitely be talking with Ben again!
I met the Langton Howarth team during ELRIG Drug Discovery 2018 where they provided a number of useful early career workshops and talks with a variety of professionals from across the industry. With a range of attendees at different points in their career the sessions were informative. After speaking with them after the workshops they offered CV & interview advice and followed up with me after my early interviews to check my progress. I’m very grateful for ELRIG and Langton Howarth for their informative sessions.
I was at the ELRIG Drug Discovery 2018 and have attended one of the career workshops for the early career professionals chaired by Emma Howarth. I have been attending ELRIG Drug Discovery meetings for a number of years. I thought the introduction of workshops and Learning Paths aimed at people in their early career stage is a brilliant idea. These sessions definitely benefitted people in the early stages of their scientific career as well as people, like myself, who are returning to the profession from a career break. It goes to show that ELRIG values everyone as an asset in the drug discovery industry. Thank you so much for putting together such a great programme for the event.
Ben is absolutely who you wish to have as recruiter! Since the first phone call he made to me, I immediately felt comfortable to speak to him. Not only was he courteous, professional and helpful but had a thorough understanding of my background and what I was looking for. To complete the whole recruitment process it took a month due to my travels, nevertheless he was always available and went the extra mile with his helpful tips for both interviews and following up. I’d strongly recommend using Ben to anyone looking for the next step up into their career. He is by far the best recruitment consultant I’ve ever dealt with.
Fantastically helpful! Has found me my dream job - much appreciated!
"My consultant Ben was great to work with, I sent in an online application, within an hour they got in contact, within a day I had an interview and within a week I had a job. I'm working a fixed term temporary contract right now and the moment it runs out I'll be straight back to Langton Howarth."
“Having been a recent graduate with an MSc in Microbiology, I started applying for vacancies in the scientific sector and with the help of Langton Howarth they successfully found me a position that suits my skills. I’ve been working with Ben who impressed me with his positive attitude since the first day he contacted me and placed me within an Internal Applications Sales Specialist, he was always helpful throughout the process and prepared me extremely well for interviews, but most importantly he understood from the start the kind of role I was looking for – I would highly recommend him to others”
Oliver is very efficient and thorough at his job. He does all he can to assist you and help you find a job and beyond. Full of fantastic ideas and recommendations and is with you every step of the way. It can be overwhelming and hard to find a good recruiter and agency but I can honestly say that Oliver is one of the best. You really get a feeling of being looked after and cared about as a candidate. If you get a call from Oliver you know you will be finding a new job. He covers all bases and keeps on looking for you until you accept an offer
I have recently had the immense pleasure of engaging Langton Howarths assistance in the pursuit of a couple of potential employment opportunities. They have been eager to contact me regarding opportunities of interest, acting as an exemplary intermediate between potential employers and myself.
“If anyone is looking for a new role in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industry, then I highly recommend Ben, and by extension Langton Howarth. I have recently accepted a new role resulting from contact and liaising with Ben. Throughout the process from the initial discussion about the role, through to advice and guidance on interviewing and presentations, and general brief chats during the process, I found Ben highly knowledgeable of the industry and always willing to offer up help and advice in a friendly manner. Since accepting the job Ben has also followed up the process which is a nice and appreciated personal touch.”
“I found Ben and, by extension, Langton Howarth a pleasure to work with. Ben came across as both highly knowledgeable and professional throughout the recruitment process. I would definitely recommend Ben and Langton Howarth in the future.”
VWR International has been working with Langton Howarth for more than four years. They provide a highly professional service, based on a strong understanding of our business and market sector. The team have established a close working relationship with many key stakeholders within VWR and have been successful in providing strong candidates and future VWR associates.
I approached Langton Howarth to organise a talk about industrial jobs available for scientific researchers within academia at the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine. I expected one of Emma’s colleagues to carry out this talk but I was extremely impressed that Emma herself was willing to do the talk. From the moment I first made contact, Emma was very approachable and very well prepared when it came to the talk. Many of the people who attended this talk found Emma extremely interesting, inspirational and very supportive. Early career researchers came out of the talk with a different and positive view of industry jobs. I am very glad we have been able to make this connection and will continue to keep in touch with Emma and her team.
I have had the pleasure of working with Langton Howarth on multiple occasions since Emma Launched the business in 2006. Over my 25 years in the Life science sector, I have worked with many other recruiting organisations with mixed results. The Langton Howarth team however, have always delivered with the utmost professional and focused service regardless of whether I have been recruiting or being recruited. What sets the team aside, in my opinion, is the level knowledge of the industry segments they are targeting and the individuals therein. This results in an efficient service, without the 'spray and pray' approach that I have witnessed from other recruiters
I would like to say a big thank you to you and Langton Howarth for all you have done. You have been fully supportive throughout the interview process. You have been very helpful, reassuring and professional at all times. I would recommend Langton Howarth Recruitment to anyone.
