Don’t just take our word for it

Chris helped me find my new position. I have used his services before and once again was delighted with the help and advice he provided. He takes true care in matching employee to employer and once you tell him your current requirements you can totally relax in your search for a suitable position. He really listens and notes what is needed for both applicant and employer and ensures you are prepared for the interview – 100% recommend.

I would absolutely recommend Chris at CB3 Associates if you are looking for your next step in your Financial Services career. Chris was instrumental in helping me secure my first role in the sector, whilst I was also moving to a new part of the country; and his connections and advice were invaluable during what was a time of huge upheaval for me. Chris put me in touch with a company whose values matched with mine, and who were offering an opportunity that suited me perfectly. This was a door that would never have opened without him, which I'm sure will prove to have a profound impact on my future career. Thanks once again, Chris!

HarrisonParaplanner @ Amber River

Strongly recommend Chris. He makes it his mission to get you sorted out and takes time to nurture you through the process, prep you for interviews and was always happy to talk through any questions or problems. Thanks Chris!

WillFinancial Planner @ Hawsons WM

Chris was very helpful during the whole recruitment process. Quick at chasing and providing updates regularly. Would highly recommend.

EmiliaParaplanner @ Openwork:

What a guy - goes over and above. Sorted me 3 interviews within days early in December at a time another agency told me the market was really quiet. Understands the market well and presents suitable candidates. I am now very happy to be working with him to fill some vacancies where he placed me.

KateParaplanning Manager @ Kingswood Group

Chris helped me find a job within the wealth sector very efficiently and professionally. He gave me lots of great feedback and was very pleasant to communicate with. Would definitely recommend consulting Chris if you are looking for new work.

JessicaFinancial Planning Administrator @ Irwin Mitchell AM

I would highly recommend Chris when searching for a new role. He takes the time to understand the type of role you are looking for and communicates with you right through the process, from application through to starting the new role. He even took the time to see how I was getting on after I had started. Thanks Chris.

PaulineFile Checker @ 2plan

I would encourage anyone looking for a role in financial services to use Chris as their first point of contact. He really listened to my priorities and what I was looking for in terms of the type of business I wanted to work in from a cultural perspective. Chris is really well connected, managing to get me an interview with a company that perhaps wouldn’t have considered me based only on my CV - And I’m now doing a job I love with a great company.
