At CQR we believe that really listening is the key to making every placement a success. In 20 years of recruiting Claire has learnt the value of really getting to know her clients and their individual needs. We believe in working closely with our clients and providing a recruitment service that is second to none.

By meeting with our clients and their line managers to discuss each position in detail CQR really gets to know the nitty gritty of each job role and the type of skills and personality our candidate will need to be the right match. We have also been known to spend a day at our clients premises and get ‘hands on’ in a role to understand more clearly what a job really involves!

CQR work on all positions our clients need to fill including Technical, Factory, Sales, Industrial, Commercial, Finance, Office, IT and Legal. Claire has specialised in all of these business sectors and has the ability to identify a candidate’s special skills and match them to our client’s requirements.

We cover temporary, contract and permanent positions across all of the sectors mentioned above and because we are independent we can be flexible and adapt to your needs as a client.

We are proud to work with many of the leading employers throughout North Devon. We provide a varied range of essential services that help businesses to grow. Whether you need a new senior manager or ten additional pairs of hands for a week to deliver on that important order, we will be there to help you through the process offering the same level of expertise for any vacancy no matter how big or small.

What our clients say about us

Our preferred supplier list for recruitment support

CQR have been on our preferred supplier list for recruitment support since we set this up many years ago, and still consistently out-perform the other agencies. With CQR, I can feel confident of receiving high quality candidates, that have been vetted against the requirements of the role I am hoping to fill. This minimises the amount of time I need to spend reviewing the candidate’s details, and I almost always go straight to interview. TQR also deliver each candidate with a good brief of the role and our business, which makes the interview more efficient too. TQR’s success rate with us is very high and is down to the effort CQR put into screening and selecting the right candidates for the job. CQR are very popular in our business, from those recruiting for shop-floor staff, all the way to senior positions.

Claire's knowledge of recruitment, the area, and needs of our business result in an excellent turnaround time in filling our vacancies

We regularly engage the services of Claire and CQR and would consider them as being our preferred supplier in this area. Her knowledge of recruitment, the area, and needs of our business result in an excellent turnaround time in filling our vacancies.

She takes the time to understand our requirements and those of the particular department which ensures that the candidates presented for interview match our brief.

All the way through the various recruitment projects we are kept fully informed and interviews are organised within a short time frame.

Throughout our time dealing with CQR, Claire has maintained an upbeat, friendly and professional manner at all times.

Thank you for your efforts and I know as a business we will continue to use CQR in the future.

A dedicated and professional service

CQR provides a dedicated and professional service which is markedly superior to that provided by most recruiters. It’s testimony to the quality of Claire’s approach that after many years the majority of our staff were originally recruited by her – whereas hires from other firms have not had longevity with us. I would recommend CQR without hesitation.
