What our candidates say


During the last three months I have appreciated your assistance in trying to find me suitable employment to match my skill-set. I would like to particularly mention that you were responsive, collaborative and are one of the best agencies out there with a keen eye for matching candidates with the right company. I am grateful and look forward to recommending others to use your star-studded team!


I would like to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. Aldrich were by far the best agency I dealt with during my search for a new job. I would happily recommend you to any friends or colleagues and will most certainly be in touch if I am ever in need of a new job!


My new role is just perfect as it is fast paced, varied with huge amounts of autonomy, thinking on your feet whilst also collaborating and putting forward new ideas and ways of doing things. It is my perfect role – thank goodness I called in that day back in February.

Private PA

I have worked with different agencies in the past and I have to say that the service I have received at Aldrich has been the best so far. Continue doing the good work and all the best in the future.


Aldrich is very different to the other agencies I have been to – a lot more welcoming, genuine and down to earth. I felt so at ease by comparison!


I can genuinely say you have been by far the best recruiter I’ve worked with – and that’s even when I was one myself!

Placed PA

Just wanted to thank you all for all your support! I was amazed by how organised and professional you were including emails, texts and phone calls. By far the best recruitment firm I’ve ever been in touch with. I will definitely be recommending you and if/when I need to look for a new challenge I shall be contacting you again!


I would especially like to extend my many thanks to you all for your continued efforts with my job search. I really appreciated all your help and support over the last few weeks… if any of my friends are looking I will definitely recommend Aldrich & Company to them.


I would like to thank you very much for all your support in my job hunting. You have made the experience easy and fun! You are the best agency I’ve visited in London.


I can honestly say, that out of all the recruitment firms I have encountered, Aldrich & Company is by far the most professional out of any I have worked with.


I would just like to say a very big thank you to you and your team for helping me get back into full time employment so quickly. The service you and your team provide is exceptional and to the highest level of professionalism. I have had a career change at the age of 35 with ease because of your support. It is absolutely the perfect company for me. The time and effort they are putting in is immense. I will now be studying for my IMC exams and taking this position to the next level. I can’t thank Aldrich & Co enough. Please thank the team on my behalf.

Executive Assistant | Asset Management

I just wanted to thank the team for the work and for the welcome you’ve given me!
I hope to be able to work with you in the not-too-distant future.


Aldrich & Company was one of a number of agencies I had been in contact with while looking for a new job in London. I had replied to a job online which was being handled by Aldrich & Company and Emily Aldrich promptly called me back in the early evening being sensitive not to contact me during office hours. At the time most agencies seemed to have just one suitable position on their books but Emily had a number of interesting positions which she spoke to me about in great detail. While we spoke Emily pieced together a picture of the type of role I was looking for but also a picture of what I was like as a person this enabled her to make good suggestions for the most suitable roles both from her clients and from my point of view. I would happily recommend Aldrich & Company and suggest that people speak to Emily and her team and see how they can help for both permanent and temporary roles.

Placed PA

A personal thank you to Therese as although only over email she always managed to send an individual email rather than a group/automated response and it just made me smile on a weekly basis 🙂


I wanted to settle in before I wrote to you properly to say thank you. It’s been 3 weeks now and I’m really enjoying it here. The team are all lovely and I’m so grateful that you believed in me enough to put me forward for this role. I’m feeling more confident every day and I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m up and running fully. Wishing you all a lovely weekend and I’ll be sure to keep in touch but hopefully not in the context of looking for a new role anytime soon!

Roadshow Coordinator

When starting the process to find my next job it was extremely important to me to identify the best recruitment consultants in a bid to limit the number of people I worked with and ensure quality over quantity.

Aldrich & Company was a perfect example of this and exactly the kind of firm I wanted to represent me.  As an organisation I found them highly professional yet extremely approachable.  Each consultant I met took time and care to go through my previous career history and to gain an understanding of what I was looking for in a future role.  Their combined experience and coverage of the marketplace gave me the reassurance I was looking for and I was always confident they would place me in the right role, in the right firm.



I am so proud to have been a small part of your story; and you have played a large part in mine. I know my London life to date would have been nowhere near as weird and wonderful and exciting as it has been had my CV not made its way into Kim’s inbox during my first couple of days in the Big Smoke. Thank you then for taking the time to meet with me then being honest with me and having faith in me. I wish you both the very best for the continued success of Aldrich.

Highly successful PA

I thought Eva was absolutely brilliant! So professional, responsive and efficient – she was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Office Manager | Leading Private Equity Firm

The team at Aldrich & Co. are friendly, honest and professional and look to place you as a candidate in the job best suited to you. They go above and beyond make sure you are happy in your new position! Thank you for everything!

Temporary Candidate

I just wanted to reiterate that you as individuals and an agency have been absolutely fantastic. It is VERY rare to find an agency where its sole purpose is to look after the candidates and represent them rather than just chasing the big buck! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you in the future.


It’s been an absolutely pleasure Therese, thank you for being super reliable, efficient and nice! Thank you and keep smiling!

Financial Services PA

I also wanted to mention my sincere appreciation of the wonderful warm reception I enjoyed when I visited your offices. I don’t think I have ever experienced such genuine professionalism from every person I met with.  This is indeed testimony to your success as a recruitment firm.  I have recommended and spoken highly of your firm to friends and ex colleagues.


Thank you so much to you and your team for getting me an interview here, I have been non-stop since I arrived and am loving absolutely every second of it! Switching jobs and coming here was a fantastic decision and I thank you and your team for helping me so much! I am really enjoying working here and have met some fantastic people/have helped organise/attended some amazing events!

PA | Leading Media Group

I wanted to thank you all for the assignments that you have allocated me, I really appreciate everything that you have given me – it has been a great experience working with the Aldrich Team!


Placed Temporary Candidate

I’m really enjoying it out here, the apartment’s beautiful and the weather is perfect at the moment. Been exploring the city today as it’s the weekend! I can tell that it’s going to be such a good experience and I feel very lucky to have got the job, they are all extremely kind. Thank you for making it all happen!

Candidate placed in Abu Dhabi

Aldrich delivered the role of my dreams through a special alchemy of instinct, thoroughness and exceptional levels of professionalism resulting in the right fit all round. I couldn’t be happier and strongly encourage talented job seekers to experience brilliant recruiting at its best!

Candidate | Top Investment Bank

I have found Aldrich & Co to be the most professional agency that I have dealt with – and I have dealt with a few over the years. I am not just another person on their books; their genuine concern to find a job that suits me is very refreshing. I am very grateful to them.

Candidate | Leading Hedge Fund

Emily Aldrich placed me at the BVCA in 2008. Emily’s approach has always been personal, attentive and professional. I have enormous respect for Emily and recommend her to others without reservation.

City-based Events Coordinator

I can’t thank you all enough for all you have done for me and how you’ve helped me with employment over the past 18 months or so – I will of course be keeping your details and will keep in touch.

Marketing Candidate | Global Investment Bank

It has been a pleasure working with you and your agency – everyone I have dealt with has been extremely friendly and professional, Therese in particular. I will be sure to recommend you to any friends or family looking for new roles in the future.


Thank you all so much for your support and help with my job search. Having now had contact with many recruitment agencies during my job search I have no hesitation in saying you were head and shoulders above the others in terms of responsiveness and professionalism. Thank you again for putting me forward for some wonderful jobs. Should I be job searching in the future I hope you will not mind me contacting you again!


Team Aldrich. You were all so incredibly welcoming and professional from the minute I met you – I don’t know if I told you but after meeting you all I put all my eggs in one basket and stuck with you (no other search firm compared) and it was without a doubt the right decision. I cannot thank you enough not only for your ongoing hard efforts but for your fantastic support and advice. I have not and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I feel worth your while. A huge thank you to all of you.

Former Candidate, now Client | Leading Asset Management Firm

First of all I would like to thank you very much for your kind support over the last few weeks. You have been of a great help at all times providing me with the assistance I needed in my job search. Thanks to you I have found a great position in an amazing company and I am extremely grateful for that! I registered in several recruitment agencies so I am able to compare and I can tell you that not everybody has been as available helpful and friendly as you have been at Aldrich & Company. I will definitely comment this point with my new employer when I have a chance to do so. Thank you so much for everything!!! Thank you again to the whole team at Aldrich & Company for your kind support professionalism and kindness at all times! It has been a pleasure to deal with you! Many thanks!!!

Investment Assistant

Emily has featured in my career trajectory prominently over the last 10 years and has steered me through the pain of redundancy more times than I would care to mention! Each time she has succeeded in taking me in the right direction helped me to secure stimulating and challenging roles and has been ready to pick up the pieces at every key moment. Emily is reliable and above all frank and honest; she cuts through the waffle often associated with recruiters and makes excellent decisions based on her thorough and intuitive knowledge of the market. She neither plumps up my ego nor knocks me when I am down and has acted like a lifebuoy to me since we first met in 2000. After 12 years of the rough with the smooth I am finally settled in a role which fits me perfectly and once again I have Emily to thank. Whilst I hope not to use her for my own purposes for the foreseeable future I recommend her on a regular basis to anyone looking for a capable and well-vetted assistant or a PA looking for a change of scene – either way her service is always faultless.

PA | Private Equity Firm

First week completed at X and I am really enjoying it, everyone is so welcoming and friendly I feel like I have been there for years. I wanted to thank-you for your help with my job search I would highly recommend you and Aldrich to anyone looking for work


Kim St John placed me with a major US bank and as my career has progressed I have recommended many candidates and clients to her. She has an excellent knowledge of the industry and she is always helpful and happy to give advice where needed. This agency actually knows their clients and candidates better than any other agency I’ve come across. Keep up the good work.

Candidate | Prime Brokerage, US Bank

I just wanted to drop you an email to say a very huge THANK YOU for placing me here. I saw a selection of recruitment agencies and I can honestly say that you were the most attentive company/consultant combined. You really listened to what I was looking for and found something suitable and also challenging to my skill set. I have now been here for 10 days and already it has been a breath of fresh air. They have a great skills and personal development program which they insist on so I feel I will be well nurtured here progressing in my career. Thank you again for your hard work in not only taking the time to approach and meet with me but also taking the additional time to suitably place me.

New HR / Office Administrator | Top Fund Management Company

What stood out to me when working with Aldrich & Co. was its adroit approach to understanding my true motivations and interests – going well beyond the trivial question of ‘what are you looking for?’. As I was making a career shift, the team took the time to consider non-traditional ways of facilitating this transition, while suggesting positions that I had not even considered, but which better suited my personality and professional interests.
