“Guy was instrumental in helping me land my dream job, where I have now been for a wonderful year. Having sent him my CV, he found a role that best suited my personality and skills. Having found a suitable role, he was able to give me fantastic insight in to why I was well suited, and how to communicate why I was a strong candidate in the upcoming interviews with the prospective employer. I can’t thank him enough for all of his help finding me this role, and I would urge anyone looking to change jobs to get in contact with Guy to explore your options.” Henry Wilson, Weatherbys Bank, May 2023

“I would like to pass my sincere thanks to Guy and the team at Universal Solutions. I first came across Guy via LinkedIn. Having connected, he offered to review my CV and provide one to one tailored feed back and mentoring. Having been a senior Army Officer himself, he understood the difficulties of translating a military based CV into the style and tone desired in the civilian sector. Guy mentored me through the rewriting process and over several one to ones we forged a CV that resulted in a transformation in the amount of opportunities being offered. I quickly went from rejection letters with my previous CV, to offers of interviews and I’m happy to report I’ve secured a brilliant role in a top European defence company working on a really exciting new project.  This would not have been possible without Guy’s SME input and mentorship.” Ben Lawrence, April 2023

"My experience with Guy Denison-Smith at Universal Recruitment was excellent from start to finish. Our initial chat was extremely informative, where he outlined the job and told me more about the company, it’s values and the role I’d be applying for. He coached and mentored me through the interview process, offering valuable advice and helping with practice questions, which helped to calm nerves and prepare for the interview. Once offered the job, he acted as the mediator between myself and the company by sorting out documentation and keeping me up to date with the progress of my online screening and contract administration, as well as answering any questions I had about the job. He was always prompt to reply to any queries, making the entire process seamless and efficient. Ever since I started the job, he has checked in to see how I am doing and offered support should I ever need it. I highly recommend Universal Recruitment as I had such a fantastic experience. Thank you, Guy!" Emily Parker, successful candidate, Associate Private Banker, Weatherbys’ Private Bank. September 2022
