ALLEN & YORK is a leading environmental recruitment consultancy who have worked closely with Hyder Consulting for many years. This has enabled an in-depth understanding of recruitment needs in order to provide a tailored service. Following a meeting in the North West, a few key positions where identified for the continued success of the Environmental Solutions Team, including a Senior Noise Consultant.

The Service

An initial step of a database search was agreed. The first stage was to explore the market, our network of contacts and advertise the roles. Consultants with acoustic experience at this level are extremely difficult to find. A team of five people spent time to ensure that people who could perform the role were identified.

The Result

Several carefully selected people were interviewed for the role, including candidates from outside the UK, one consultant stood out from the rest, as having exactly the right skills and experience. As he was living on the other side of the world, ALLEN & YORK helped to facilitate a smooth transition to the UK. He has now started his new job and both Hyder Consulting and their new Senior Consultant are both extremely satisfied by the service provided and the end result.


"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with my search for employment in the United Kingdom. I have been very impressed by your prompt response to my correspondence, your professionalism, your attention to detail and your genuine interest in my search for employment. To arrive in the United Kingdom with an interview scheduled with Hyder Consulting gave me a feeling of security. I was fortunate enough to be offered a position with Hyder Consulting, which I feel was due to your expertise in matching my CV with the position advertised by the company. You are a credit to your company. Relocating to another country and starting a new life is exciting and daunting at the same time. Your efforts have however given me cause for great optimism at the prospect of a bright new beginning in England."
