    VP Europe Global Data Organisation

    "We have been working with Troy Mainstone at Tangent International for almost 3 years now on a number of projects across EMEA specifically on MDM & PIM projects. We initially reached out to Troy and his team because of the niche expertise and experience they have within this area. Troy and his team not only find the candidates we are looking for they work tirelessly on making sure the candidates they place stay, this is aided by their products Flow and Bond.

    Troy initially started as part of our PSL, after 6 months it was clear that the level of service was and still is way above anything we have had before, to secure Troy and his teams services we quickly agreed an exclusivity agreement and partnership which gave us a team dedicated to find the skills we need.

    Finally, it has been refreshing to work with a partner that drives the agenda for the wider organisation; two examples would be Tangents focus on driving women into technology as well as their active participation of being a disability confident recruiter (RIDI). Their understanding of both of these and subsequent education of our organisation has helped transform our people strategy into something we can be proud of."

    Health & Safety Professional Working in the contract market

    “Over many years I have engaged or worked with a number of different “professional” recruitment companies and recruiters, as a senior and experienced Occupational Health and Safety professional I have worked in specialist strategic and operational environments and when looking personally for an appropriate positions sometimes found it difficult. 

    I was contacted by James Tiffin who discussed with me a senior interim role in Retail which I was very interested in, I was impressed by james’s professional approach and within a few days James had spoken to the recruiting Director and set up an interview for me. Throughout the recruitment process James discussed with me all aspects and was in contact with me at regular intervals. However I was not able to secure the role but James ensured that I had the complete feedback from the hiring Director as soon as it was available.

    I would have no problem in recommending and working with James again, his professionalism and care in ensuring a stress free process was one I had not encountered with other recruitment companies and freelance recruiters for a very long time”.

    "It is with great pleasure that I recommend Emily. She played the highest percentage of helping me get my dream job of a FSE and I am humbled for making it happen. I find Emily to be an outstanding recruiter. Her communication and preparation before, during and after interview are well managed. She guided me well in everything that I was supposed to do. During my first travel to Dubai, I was not confused despite that I was in a new country for the first time since she had sent me the maps and directions of where am going. She was very committed and conscientious until I joined the company. Emily is an excellent recruiter and would be an asset to any organization "

    "From the time we started with working with Tangent, she has been very helpful and supportive. Giving her professional advises on several issues we had while settling the account/salary transfer process.
    Also, last month, we had some civil un-rest in country almost for a week. It was very crucial time for us in terms of security. She had been continuously in touch with us, asking our welfare even when she was spending time with her daughter. During that period, even few words from someone who cares and concerned works a lot.
    We have had NO issues towards any professional duty she is supposed to perform. Everything works smooth, on times within the due process. Anytime we raise any concern, we are responded back with best professional advice.
    I really appreciate her and would thankyou that you have such team members in your organization to support us.
    Hope to have same support from her in future."

    PMO Analyst

    "By way of introduction; I was recently placed as a PMO Analyst via Tangent International.

    I’ve been liaising with your colleagues, James Tiffin, and wanted to follow up with some feedback. First and foremost, having worked in recruitment myself for a few years, I have to sincerely applaud James for his professionalism and support throughout the process.

    He worked with the most honesty, transparency and consistency I’ve experienced in a LONG time from a Recruiter. He made himself readily available for every silly question I had (and I had a few!) at any time; including weekends and evenings. For that, I’m very thankful.

    It can be a bit daunting starting a new contract, etc. but he really gave me a strong insight as to what to expect before getting here which made the onboarding process both seamless and smooth to navigate. I’ve had a GREAT first week! 

    It’s not often I experience this so I’ll definitely be recommending you through my network and have done so already.

    Lastly, Raquel has been equally as fantastic in providing all information and answering all questions quickly and efficiently.

    Thank you again for everything - you have a great team on your hands.

    I’m sure we’ll catch up again soon."

    Recruiting in Dubai MTN Group

    I had a fantastic experience with James Andrew Bundock during my recruitment process for MTN Group, Dubai. 

    James is thorough, detailed and well experienced in the recruitment process. He screened me and my profile to meet the customer expectations. He went much deeper into the modern recruitment process to ask me questions about job description requirements, video questions submitted to end customer, customer onboarding process. It took a while, but James was in constant touch with me through email, phone call and WhatsApp. I was surprised to know how he has deep telecom technical knowledge to recruit any candidate.

     I will strongly recommend for him for any Industry that requires a detailed, technical recruiter and HR head and business development.

    "I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having been a client of Troy’s as a professional seeking a new career opportunity. I can
    say, without hesitation, that he has exceeded my expectations in all the situations that we have worked together.
    He doesn’t view the hiring process as being a sporting event (“winning at all costs”); instead, he knows that looking for a
    good match should be a “win-win” proposition. He found me a great match and I will soon start my new position as
    Senior Regional Manager for Sales & Channels EMEA.

    I find Troy to be very engaging, trustworthy, and dependable. He also has a wealth of experience in my industry recruiting
    field (Master Data Management), so he has contacts in many of the right places to assist people at all levels.
    In addition, he clearly enjoys his business and is very effective in assisting D, B & C-level managers along their career
    path. Although the recruiting company had a very long process, thanks to his bi-lateral support it was definitely a smooth
    and pleasurable experience."
