What our clients think

We could tell you all about our success stories and achievements. But you’re better hearing all about it from someone just like you.


I have worked with Anne for 5 years during which she has provided recruitment consultancy services assisting us in filling numerous vacancies. Anne has consistently provided a highly professional, efficient and effective service that has allowed my team to grow and strengthen through the appointment of individuals into key positions. A high quality of personnel is of paramount importance to any business and I am grateful for Anne in greatly streamlining the recruitment process and helping us to build a high-quality team.

Divisional Head at Fugro GEOS


I have worked with Anne Carey and the team at Direct Resourcing Solutions (DRS) on a number of projects and found them to be highly professional, experienced and knowledgeable.
They are totally focussed on delivering an exceptional service and sharing a wealth of recruitment experience, across a wide range of sectors.
The team work seamlessly with clients and as an extension of their internal recruitment team and the ‘on-demand’ recruitment model really works. Organisations can pick and choose which elements of the process DRS support and this innovative approach delivers exactly what they need.
I have really enjoyed working with DRS and been able to use my experience in a manner that offers me flexible work with the support of an established and progressive business.

It was a very informative and interesting process and I think we did extremely well with the candidates. Overall I believe it did wonders for our brand, projecting an image of an elite team with a progressive forward vision. It was very cost efficient and gave us more control in the process. This process definitely brought the right candidates to the table and was also been a great catalyst in reconsidering our existing set up within the team.

Hiring Manager - Standard Life Aberdeen


Having DRS on board saved a huge amount of man-hours and it was very cost effective compared to other outsourcing models. Anne spent time to understand the type of candidate we were after and took time to understand the role. Overall the whole process went very smoothly and allowed us to fill the roles in what was a tight time frame.

Tom Edmonds
Hiring Manager - Standard Life Aberdeen


I worked with Anne and the team to support the delivery of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games from 2012 through to successful delivery in 2014. Anne provided a range of support services during this time, mainly in the volume campaigns that we ran. The DRS team worked closely with us providing professional independent assessors to coach and guide the hiring managers through the selection process for each of their areas. Their support and objectivity were invaluable, ensuring that many of our international colleagues were guided through UK employment legislation whilst ensuring that, most importantly, they made informed hiring decisions.
The team spent time getting to know each of the niche functions, but not only what they did, getting to really know and understand the people who managed and ran these functions.
I highly recommend Anne and the DRS team, who supported the successful delivery of all hiring requirements across a diverse range of job roles. Their On Demand recruitment solutions are unique and can help whether you are running a project or managing ad-hoc recruitment.

Director - Projects, Implementation and Recruitment Shared Service Solutions at Search Consultancy


When I met the DRS interviewer, I wouldn’t have known they were from an external partner – she was very passionate about the company and what they had to offer. After my interview, DRS contacted me to say they would like to put me forward for a management position, that was also hiring, as she recognised my potential. I was successful and started as a Team Manager not long after – all because of the DRS Assessor’s knowledge of the role and ability to recognise talent.
