“A recruitment company that actually listens to our requirements and genuinely understands the whole ethos of our company. Instead of being inundated with a large number of irrelevant CV’s, Mode 3 take the time to research and investigate candidates that fit our criteria exactly. Quality personnel sourced by staff with a wealth of experience and expertise in the freight forwarding industry. Excellent service!”

Andy, Ocean Freight Director @ Global Forwarder

“Our recruitment requirements for an independent entrepreneurial business were important. Mode 3 invested the time and effort to understand us as a company and me as a person so he could marry our attributes with the right prospective candidates.  Very few recruitment companies see past an opportunity and pursue placement as the only key driver.  Mode 3 took time to understand our business and the seriousness of the recruitment project we are about to undertake that will last 3 years.  Mode 3 understand the importance of placing the right individual is the only thing that matters not just placing someone, massive difference!  I appreciate the behind the scenes work that goes on without just “throwing” CV’s about.  Relaxed, focused yet friendly, more of a partnership than a recruiter/client approach, I like that!  Now we have been provided with candidates that can add real value to our business and enjoy themselves as well!  For executive positions Mode 3 will be our recruitment company of choice!”

Andrew, Group Sales & Supply Chain Director @ Independent Forwarder
