Atwood Tate is by far the most supportive agency I have come across. I worked with Karine Nicpon, and I felt very well looked after at every stage in the process. She was attentive and professional, patient and understanding. I always felt that I could give her a call, whether for advice in composing a cover letter or for a quick confidence boost before an interview. I would absolutely recommend this service. Lovely people! Loren Harway, Assistant Editor, STEP, December 2017

In selecting my CV and putting me forward, Karine has played a key part in my career move from systems analysis into editorial. Karine was also instrumental in negotiating the details of the offer. Her professional but relaxed manner made me feel comfortable throughout and I would look forward to working with her again. Samantha Phillips, Associate Editor,  Buyers Lab Ltd

A friend recommended Atwood Tate to me and I met with Publishing Recruitment Consultant, Olivia Constantinides. Throughout the job-hunting process Olivia was very helpful and personally contacted me about suitable roles. I would also recommend signing up for the online job alert service. Olivia was very helpful when it came to all stages of the process including application, interviews and offer. I would highly recommend Olivia and the team at Atwood Tate for publishing jobs. – Annabel Dent, Clinical Marketing Manager, Pearson, February 2017

Atwood Tate is the first recruitment agency that I have used and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a role in publishing. Karine Nicpon was my consultant and was key in helping to place me in my new role as a Content Editor in a well-established scientific society. Throughout the process, Karine has been friendly, professional and always available for a quick call or email to have a chat about prospective roles. She has been a great liaison between myself and the employer throughout the recruitment process and has always been supportive of any potential roles.

Helen Speedy and, indeed, Atwood Tate represent what we should understand as a recruitment consultancy: she and they take the time and effort to understand their candidates and thereby present their clients with the right candidates for the right roles. This is not easy to do and rarely effected by others in their profession. In the publishing world, if you need a position filled, you should use Atwood Tate. Definitely. – Benjamin Glover, November 2016

The London publishing market is extremely competitive and it can be very difficult to stand out and get noticed when applying for positions.  Working with Olivia at Atwood Tate helped me in understanding which roles and companies were the best fit for what I was looking for at this stage of my career, and helped me to get that all-important foot in the door. I would definitely recommend them to any newcomer to London looking to break into the industry. – Melanie Kydd, Sales Support Executive at Becker Professional Education, November 2016

When I decided to move back to the UK after nearly twenty years in Spain, I registered with a number of recruitment agencies specialising in the Publishing sector, before doing so with Atwood Tate. I can honestly say that from the very first moment, the attention and professionalism shown towards me by Olivia Constantinides stood out in comparison with other Consultants I had previously been in contact with. I was regularly kept informed of the situation with my application and always felt that she was on my side. The information I received was always clear and detailed, and any questions or queries I had were always answered speedily and appropriately. I particularly appreciated the post-offer assistance I received, as regards starting date and negotiation of the final package. All in all I couldn’t have been happier with Olivia and would recommend them without hesitation to colleagues…..and will definitely make use of them myself in the future if needed (although I’m not considering doing so for a long time yet!! – Colin Dobson, International Sales Manager, Renaissance, September 2016

Atwood Tate was one of the few employment agencies that treated me as an individual with specific skills. Most other agencies use the shotgun approach that is time consuming yet ineffective. Clare Louise and Lisa emailed me when they had jobs they thought I would be interested in and once the interview process began, they kept me up to date every step of the way. They helped me negotiate the starting date I wanted. Even after the offer was made, they kept in touch. Thank you, Claire Louise, Lisa and Atwood Tate. – Cathy Stagg, Managing Editor, Amberley Publishing, August 2016

I had not had any experience with a recruiting agency before, and I was unsure of the benefits or of what to expect. However when Karine Nicpon from Atwood Tate approached me on LinkedIn with the perfect role, it was clear she had taken the time to read my profile and career history. Karine was approachable, professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process and her communication skills were impeccable. She knew, in depth, the requirements of the client, and she also understood my skills and career goals. I would recommend Atwood Tate to any of my colleagues in the publishing industry. – Miranda Wilson-Wood, Content Development Editor at BIR, August 2016

Deciding on your next career move isn’t always the easiest decision to make. When I was approached by Olivia at Atwood Tate I was presented with an excellent opportunity. Olivia had taken the time to read my profile, study my suitability, and felt strongly enough to approach me directly with a role which she felt I’d be a good fit for. Communication was very good; I received regularly up-to-date information throughout the entire process, which ultimately helped inform my final decision. I would happily use Atwood Tate again and recommend their service to other colleagues.  I would also like to personally recommend Olivia, who I thank for helping me secure my next new challenge, which I’m looking forward to immensely. —Darren Amner, Marketing Manager at Bloomsbury (candidate), February 2016

I found Atwood Tate to be excellent during my job search process. I found them to be approachable, interested and understanding of the process. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out I’d been selected by an Atwood Tate agent as someone they thought would be right for a move, because I had just begun thinking about a move myself. Karine Nicpon in particular was a huge help in landing me in the right place for my skills; I’m happy to say that as a result of her help, I managed to land the first role I applied for. I think this shows a good knowledge of recruitment processes, as it was clear I was the right fit for the role. Karine was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient, and I was impressed by the speed and professionalism with which she conducted the search. I’d be very happy to recommend Atwood Tate and Karine in particular, and I have only good things to say about my experience with the recruitment agency. — Francesca Sturiale, Production Controller at Bloomsbury (candidate), December 2015

Beatrice Harper at Atwood Tate was both professional and incredibly approachable throughout my application for the role. As it was my first time using an agent to find a job, I did not know what to expect but Beatrice was ready to answer all my questions and give me advice on how to prepare for the interviews. The process was smooth and speedy, and I was kept up to date throughout by email, phone and SMS, which was an excellent and personal service. I would definitely recommend Atwood Tate to other candidates. — Wei Jun Chung, Sub-editor at Euromoney PLC (candidate), December 2015

As my first experience with a recruitment agency I wasn’t sure what to expect. But my consultant Catherine Roney was extremely helpful from the outset; providing me with additional resources to help me in my job search, feedback on my application, and excellent communication whenever there were queries or updates to my application process. All in all, the process was smooth and pleasant; I was offered the maximum salary for the role and my consultant continued support after I’d begun my placement. I will be recommending Atwood Tate to all of my publishing contacts. — Ruth Power, Publishing Officer at Royal Academy of Dance (candidate), November 2015

This is the second time I have experienced the recruitment process with Helen Speedy at Atwood Tate and I fully advocate their service. I was gratified to find that Helen instantly remembered me as one of her previously placed candidates; despite this occurring some years ago. I felt that this was a clear demonstration of their consultants’ thorough dedication and knowledge of the individuals and companies they work with. Going through the recruitment process once more with Helen felt very much like a partnership, with guidance and support offered at every stage. Atwood Tate knew their client’s requirements well and this was reflected in the incisive feedback provided to me during all aspects of the hiring process which I’m sure was integral to my successful application. — Emma Hester, Sales Director at Casemate/Oxbow Books (candidate), October 2015

Many thanks, especially to my consultant Beatrice who did a great job managing my application and all stages of the recruitment process for this role. She spent considerable time on the phone with me, advising me and keeping me informed of the various steps, eg. interviews and tasks. She was also quick to respond to email correspondence. Beatrice was instrumental in negotiating the T&Cs that I was hoping for, and this was a great help. It was also much appreciated to receive an email from her enquiring how my first week in the new job went. Thanks very much Beatrice! Catharine Tucker, candidate recently placed as B2B Editor, September 2015

Kellie has been a fantastic Recruitment Consultant to work with. From the point of applying for my contract, she has been extremely reliable and supportive in my quest to secure a contract. Kellie understands the needs of a day rate contractor, which meant that I was relieved of a lot of stress with regards to contract creation, which was much appreciated. Her ability to forge and maintain a strong working relationship with the client contributed to subsequent timely contract renewals, ultimately making the process feel seamless. Kellie’s personable and enthusiastic nature meant that I have not been treated as just another candidate on the agency books. I hope to continue working with Kellie, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a Recruitment Consultant, both for individuals seeking a new role, and also organisations requiring a recruitment expert. — Natalie Coker, Business Analyst at BMJ (candidate), July 2015

I’ve had some poor or indifferent experiences with recruitment consultants; some seemed uninterested from the start, while others began full of enthusiasm, but lost contact pretty quickly. But Beatrice Harper at Atwood Tate stands out from the crowd in terms of professionalism, availability and effectiveness. She established face-to-face contact from the start, alerted me to suitable roles and was always available with advice and feedback. If I’m ever in the market for another job, I would definitely contact Beatrice, and I have already recommended her to friends. — John Manley (candidate), May 2015

Such a breath of fresh air! Thank you Beatrice! Thank you Atwood Tate! — Candidate recently placed as Senior News Editor/Analyst, February 2015

Karine at Atwood Tate was brilliant at matching me up to the right job, and she was a great help and support throughout the whole process.  I ended up getting the first job that she put me forward for, and it was very quick and straightforward – so she is clearly great at knowing which candidates will be a good fit for specific clients.  Karine is really friendly and approachable, and I felt that the service was very personalised (which I don’t think is the case with many agencies).  Karine gave me great advice, kept me fully updated at all stages, and helped with communicating any questions/negotiations back to her client. If I were ever looking for another job (which I hope won’t be for a while!) then Karine would be the first person I’d contact.  I will definitely recommend Karine and Atwood Tate to friends looking for a new job. Thanks so much for all your help! — Eleanor Wood, Medical Editor, SB Communications/Wounds Group (candidate), February 2015

I dealt with Stefania at Atwood Tate and found her really approachable and professional at all times. She prepared me for my interview by emailing all the relevant details and tips in plenty of time before my interview. She communicated with me regularly right from my initial interest, through the interview process right until the end. She was always on the end of the phone if I needed her. I would definitely recommend this recruitment company. I had dealt with a few others in past months and this was a much better experience. And the best thing is…. I got the job. Thanks for your all your help Atwood Tate! — Mandy Humphries, Educational Sales Representative, Harper Collins (candidate), February 2015

I felt as though I was her only client and that she was out there advocating my skills and experience in a targeted and intelligent way. I was not once bothered with irrelevant roles and I never felt I was just another CV being punted from pillar to post. I would not hesitate in recommending Atwood Tate to anyone looking for a great job. — recently placed Journalist, September 2014

After doing freelance work for some time, I decided to go back to fulltime work and turned to Atwood Tate. Very quickly my name was put forward for a position as a deputy editor. Although in the end I did not get the job, it was a real pleasure to work with Dr Beatrice Harper at Atwood Tate. She took the time to understand what my strengths were and represented these fully to the company I was applying to work at, always keeping me abreast to the changes and updates to the post – which were many. There were three interviews which went with the job process and Beatrice gave me helpful tips for all three. With every other recruitment agency I have used, I never had the feeling that I was dealing with a professional. Beatrice is the complete exception to this and I would use her and Atwood Tate again in a heartbeat. The only thing which could have made the experience better would have been if I had got the post. — Velo Mitrovich, Freelance Editor (candidate) September 2014

Karine Nicpon was incredibly supportive through the recruitment process especially on the unsuccessful applications.

I would definitely recommend Atwood Tate to future candidates as they are determined for you to succeed. —Production Controller, Phaidon Press April 2014

My recruitment experience with Atwood Tate was excellent! I dealt with Helen Speedy who was nothing short of fantastic in keeping me updated on any developments in the (extended) application process and, when the time came for interview, provided me with all the necessary information and support I needed. It felt like Helen was genuinely rooting for me throughout the application process and her friendly and professional manner made the process much easier. Little touches, such as the ‘good luck’ text on the morning of the interview and the handwritten ‘congratulations on your new job’ card sent to my new office, also made the process feel wonderfully personal, and it’s details such as this which really sets Atwood Tate apart from other recruitment agencies. I’ve been in my new role three weeks now and am absolutely loving it. Thanks Helen and all the folks at Atwood Tate! —Project Manager, Professional Publisher March 2014

I’ve really enjoyed working with Atwood Tate. My journey was quite a protracted one for a number of reasons, but Helen guided me through every step and really went above and beyond. She was even in touch on a Sunday when I had a phone interview in the Middle East.  I would thoroughly recommend AT to friends and colleagues. I was kept constantly updated and well-informed, and just felt really well looked after at every stage. I couldn’t be happier! —Thalia Suzuma, Candidate, Trade Publisher February 2014

I would wholeheartedly recommend Atwood Tate to other job seekers. — candidate, Series Editor, January 2014

I contacted Helen Speedy two years after gaining my first publishing role. I was ready to move on and progress my career into an area of publishing where I could specialise. Helen was quick to alert me to suitable roles and put me forward for ones that were a really good match for my skill set. I have now gained that much sought after second role which is a great career development move for me. I have not yet started working for my new company and I am really excited to be taking up the position in a month’s time. Atwood Tate’s consultants clearly have a deep understanding of their clients’ and candidates’ needs. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their service. — Nicola Stead, Development Editor, ICSA, August 2013

Claire Law was extremely helpful in helping me return to a career in publishing after a hiatus in bookselling. She was very encouraging and the communication all the way through the process was first class. In addition, the way she facilitated negotiations, not just on salary but also with childcare requirements, was first class. I have already recommended Atwood Tate to friends wishing to further their publishing careers. Thank you! — candidate, Sales Operations Manager, August 2013

From the early stages of my initial search, right up until accepting the job offer, I cannot fault the service I received. Unlike other agencies I was using, Atwood Tate didn’t bombard me with emails and Claire Louise only called with jobs that were of real interest and met my requirements – so refreshing after months of being cold-called by other agencies! I have recommended Atwood Tate to other job seekers, and think Claire Louise did an excellent job. I’m very happy in my new role! — Candidate, Trade Publisher, May 2014

An excellent service, with immediate contact and responses from day one. I had submitted my resume to a couple of agencies previously, but found that the radar was very unresponsive. Atwood Tate took the time to guide me in repackaging my resume, although in the end it wasn’t necessary, as the agency had found me a job within one week! Claire Louise had identified a job match that I would never have thought would be available to me. I literally couldn’t believe it, and will remain grateful that I have such an opportunity to develop my skills in the publishing industry. Overall, all information was communicated seamlessly, making the transition into the new job really easy. I would definitely recommend Atwood Tate to other job seekers. — Candidate, Commissioning Editor Jan 2013
