Client Services Administrator

The best thing to come from being unemployed, is the opportunity to work alongside the staff at Avantus! Friendly, helpful and proactive, these guys go above and beyond what one would expect from a recruitment firm. They listen and take time to understand a job role that's a great fit for you. They remember you if an opportunity comes up that they think will suit you. The service is second to none. I was on their books for 5 months and was regularly contacted about new employment opportunities and temp roles. Even when I found employment, they kept in touch regularly, until they found a position I am over the moon with.

Even if you are employed, don't let that stop you. Book an appointment at Avantus. Talk to them. It will be the best days work you ever do!



Fantastic agency! I was looking for a more office based role but was struggling as I couldn't find a vacancy that suited me or a job I had relevant experience in. Simon got me into the agency straight away and put me forward for an amazing opening. With the support from the agency, I managed to secure the role and will be starting my new job soon - I only signed up to the agency a week and a half ago!

Great place, fast and efficient, very friendly team and would definitely recommend Avantus Recruit to anyone looking for new employment, temporary or permanent! Thank you so much guys!



What puts Avantus above any other recruitment agency? Service and results.

The service is second to none, the recruiters at Avantus make the difficult job search that you keep putting off, into a tailored fitting experience with great results. They keep you up to date with job roles suited for you!

Now I have a great job role, in the sector I want, with great career prospects. Honestly, the biggest downside is I am now not in regular contact with Avantus! 5 stars!

P.s. Huge thank you to Simon, he worked tirelessly to find my ideal job role. A true gem!


Insurance Advisor

This is my first time using Avantus and Joe has been excellent in his search for a job for me. Joe was very understanding of my needs and pulled out all the stops to get me a placement. Even when there was nothing suitable for me, he was still keeping in contact with me on a weekly basis, which I never got with other agencies and that made it feel more personal. Joe would always talk to me as if we were pals, instead of me just being a "prospect". 

His eager to win attitude is second to none.

I highly recommend Joe and his team at Avantus.


Sales Executive

I was looking for a new position for the last 2 months and have worked with many a recruitment agency but none have come close to the service and attention given by Avantus and Simon in particular. He really spent time to find out what I was looking for in my new role. Within 2 days, Simon had secured me an interview within the marketing sector and had a job offer by the end of the week. I would truly recommend Avantus to anyone seeking a new role or any organisation looking to hire.



Professional yet friendly and spent time to get to know me before finding a suitable role. Kept me informed on all developments and generally have been a pleasure to deal with. 

Would definitely use your service again and recommend you to others.


Business Manager

I wouldn't be in the great situation I am in now if it wasn't for Joe at Avantus. From first contact through to my accepting a new position, I had all the support I needed, from badgering him with questions to out-of-hours phone calls, Joe bent over backwards to help me. He's such an affable and approachable person with a genuine personal interest in you, which makes all the difference. I can't thank him enough!



It has always been a great pleasure working with Simon, he was helpful and supportive every step of the way & always quick to return phone calls or relay information. I have been very impressed by his courteous professionalism, as well as his knowledge of the role & team of people I was interviewing for. As someone who does not enjoy interviews, I couldn’t have asked for a smoother process and would happily recommend Simon to anyone looking for support in finding a new job role.


Sales Administrator

Excellent recruitment agency, Joe my recruitment consultant was very professional and found the job best suited to my skill set very quickly. He supported me throughout the whole process giving me the advice and confidence needed. I highly recommend Avantus Recruit.


Customer Service Advisor

Simon, Joe and team are spot on! They have you in mind all the way and they are not just trying to get you into the books. I have to say I was lucky to have them as my recruitment agency and I would look no where else! They are truly supporting, helpful, professional, informative, friendly and they will help you succeed in getting that perfect job! I will always highly recommend Avantus Recruit.


HR Assistant

Georgie at Avantus is a fantastic recruiter and has looked after me throughout the whole process. She found a job that helped me break into HR in a lovely organisation and has been my point of contact whenever I needed it. Furthermore, I was surprised to find out that she made a 1.5 hour round trip to award me "Temp of the Month" in the middle of my workday, highlighting how supportive they are as an agency and reinforces their high quality of service. I would highly recommend Georgie and Avantus to anyone looking for a job.


Account Manager

Avantus Recruit have placed me in my current job role. They were so professional, their attention to detail was great and the fact they treat you like a real person and not just a number makes the whole experience feel like they are really working on your side. They took time to interview me and to talk about my experience and what I am looking for which then enabled them to place me in the right job with the right company. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon and the team.


IT Support Engineer

I was called by Avantus and told about a possible job I could apply for by a gentleman called Dan Warltier. I did not think I was good enough for the role, but encouraged by Dan I proceeded. Not only did I get the job, but instead of it being part-time, Dan managed to get the employer to make the position full-time. I am just so thankful to Dan and Avantus. They go well beyond the call of duty. Thank you so much.


Event Manager

Simon was absolutely amazing, easy to talk to & really tried to understand me & what I was looking for! Very positive and motivating, an all-round friendly man. He found me my perfect job and I cannot wait to start next week!!


Bilingual French/English Customer Service Executive

Simon provided me with incredible service - He gave me extensive and detailed advice on how to make my CV look more specific, but also prepared me well for interviews! His recruitment company and team is one of a kind and throughout the process of placing me into my new role, he kept me updated with feedback all along the process - I found a job in one day

For reliable, considerate service with a recruiter who genuinely cares about your application, I would look to recommend Simon and Avantus Recruit. 


Business Development Executive

What a pleasure it was to work with such professional people at Avantus.

From first point of call, my professional interview with Simon in the office and then with Joe once we progressed to a prospective role. Joe was very attentive, keeping me informed and updated all the way, making the process so easy and resulting in a great offer of work, which of course I accepted.

Many thanks, Avantus. I highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a recruitment agency that will work 100% for them.


Personal Assistant

Simon was fantastic – really proactive in helping me to find a suitable role. The service is really professional and I felt like he was in my corner every step of the way. I got my ideal job a week after registering, so I can’t recommend Avantus Recruit highly enough!


Commercial Analyst 

Avantus Recruit were really helpful throughout my job search. After identifying positions which closely matched my experience and career aspirations, I was given lots of useful advice in order to better prepare myself for the interview process for specific positions. As such, I would highly recommend Avantus Recruit to other job seekers.


Finance Assistant 

I absolutely recommend Avantus Recruit. Simon Moore was excellent in his manner toward me, both on the phone and our Skype interview. He put me forward for a perfect position which couldn't have been more local to me and I'm pleased to say I was offered the job, in which Simon gave me every confidence I would succeed.

On that note, I have no hesitation in recommending Avantus Recruit and especially Simon to my friends and previous colleagues who are seeking employment.


Customer Services

I'd like to say a massive thank you to Simon Moore for finding me a position so perfectly suited to me. Simon has remained in contact throughout the whole process and made me feel at ease throughout. I would highly recommend Simon and Avantus Recruit.


Account Manager, Government Department 

Finding a new job is time consuming, stressful & peppered with disappointments - Simon & his team take all of that off your plate & work really hard to find that elusive " it's got your name on it " role. Simon & the team are proactive, professional & positive.


Senior Sales Manager, Global IT Business

Simon and his team have been a tremendous help to me whilst trying to find my next career move. They put me forward to companies which they know I would fit into and helped me in making the right decisions. They have been very professional and on hand at all times. This is the first time I have used Avantus Recruit and would recommend this agency and Simon to all potential candidates and clients.



Throughout the process Simon kept me informed of my progress and delivered good, honest feedback with tact.

I felt that Simon was not only concerned with finding the right candidate for the role but also in ensuring that my interests were looked after too. A thoroughly professional service with a human touch.

It has been a pleasure dealing with Simon and I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends, family or even complete strangers!


Personal Assistant 

Having recently been successful in achieving a new role through Avantus Recruit I was very impressed with the company.

I've used recruitment agencies in the past and succeeded in getting a new job, but Avantus strike me as the most professional I've worked with to date. I found Simon and his employees friendly and informative, as well as honestready and willing to advise

The whole process was swift and I was communicated to well throughout each stage. I highly recommend to both candidates and employers.


Business Consultant

It has been an absolute joy to find a caring, supportive, professional and delightfully people centred recruitment agency in Guildford. From first contact with the Avantus team you feel as though you are working in partnership with long lost friends, such as their attention to detail in drawing the best from both client and candidate.

If you're looking for a career enhancing partnership then you should pop in for coffee and a chat with Avantus.


Fundraising Manager

Simon is that rare beast, a recruiter who listens to the candidate as well as the client. Too many recruiters forget that and try to shoehorn you into a role that they have. Doesn't fit? They move on and forget you. Simon took the time to listen to what I wanted and found it. It worked out, which is great. I felt that he would have tried to find me something else if it hadn't.

I really appreciate Simon's help and support through what has been a fairly lengthy process. I am very much looking forward to starting my new job!


Legal Assistant

Simon and his team have been a fantastic help in finding me a new role. I would highly recommend Avantus Recruit to all candidates.


Account Manager

It's a rare Recruitment Agency that is genuinely committed to finding the right role for the candidate. Equally, Avantus demonstrate that they put the candidate and client first, even if it is not always the easiest option for them. I have already recommended their services to a number of colleagues!



Very pleased with how I was welcomed by Simon and Sam. Very friendly and professional service.
