I have enjoyed an extremely successful partnership with the guys at Searchability since I joined enquiryMAX as Development Manager in 2016 and I use Dan and Gabbi exclusively for all my technical vacancies. I have recruited 6 people (Software Developers and Testers) over the past 10 months through Searchability and they have very quickly become an integral & reliable part of our recruitment and growth strategies. Searchability’s approach to finding candidates through social media channels rather than just focusing on the job boards has meant that we see very different people to those applying through our own adverts and the usual CVs speculatively sent in from their competition. The process has always been completely transparent and the feedback from the candidates interviewed has always been extremely positive, I see Searchability as the perfect recruitment partner to represent us as we continue to grow.

With the lines between development & testing blurring, a test engineer is no longer considered someone good at clicking buttons on the applications user interface.

It was a pleasure to work with Searchability who facilitated my appointment to my latest role at Wren Kitchens. They are a professional service provider who were very responsive and who took the time to understand the role I was after. If you have a question, Searchability is prompt with a response, even if not immediately available, they never fail to return your message in a timely and efficient manner.

I have no hesitation recommending Searchability to those looking at exploring their next career.

Good testers “smell bugs” – our clients rely on us to sniff out the markets’ finest talent!

“It’s always a pleasure working with Gabbi and the team at Searchability. I have a high level of confidence in Searchability, and know that they only send candidates with the relevant skills and mindset for the job. Ultimately, this saves me lots of time as there’s no need to filter through CV’s that aren’t suitable, and when the right person can’t be found, they work with me to understand why and ultimately get the role filled. Searchability have now fulfilled a very high percentage of our recent vacancies, and they will continue to be my first contact for our future vacancies.”
