Sue is one of the best recruitment agents I have ever worked with. Whilst I was FC at Oxford University she was always positive and helpful when I was looking for temporary or permanent staff.
But for me Sue came into her own when she helped me find a new role. Sue made the effort to go beyond the job description and work out what the employer really needed. She then matched me to the role. Charity
Sue has helped me find good bookkeepers, accountants & financial controllers for a number of client companies over several years. Her access to the Oxford accounting community is very good and she has consistently suggested high calibre candidates.
In addition to receiving an efficient and effective service, it is always a pleasure doing business with Sue. Life Sciences client
Sue was recommended to me through another business contact when I had a requirement for mid-term bookkeeping cover due to staff medical leave. Sue took the time to understand our requirements and through her broad range of Oxford contacts, quickly found suitable cover. Through a personal service and regular contact, Sue is willing and able to react to changing circumstances, ensuring customer requirements are maintained. SME Business
Sue Rees offers a very personal service and is an absolute pleasure to work with. I really felt like she listened and informed me of positions that were exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend using her services. T Carvill
I have known Sue for a number of years now and she placed me in a role about 18 months ago.
She is not only friendly and approachable but also very knowledgeable about the market and works extremely hard to make sure that position is right for both you and the employer.
Sue has made point of staying in touch since she placed me in the role to make sure that things are still working out and that the role is still the right one, which is very much appreciated.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sue, whether you are an employer looking to fill position or a candidate looking for a new role. A Gascoigne
“Well done Sue on taking part in this interesting TV documentary for the BBC. You remain one of the best recruitment agencies we’ve worked with and I will try to catch the program.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sue Rees on many occasions over the last 10 years. Each time she has managed to find the ideal candidate. She specialises at all levels however her strength is finding the right person who meets the technical requirements, cultural fit for the business and the people they will be working with. What I really love about Sue is that she never bombards you with candidates, she invests a great deal of her own time understanding what is required and then selecting at the most a handful of candidates who meet the criteria. Everybody’s time is precious and I have always valued this quality approach.
My most recent engagement with Sue was recruiting a CFO. The salary on offer was up to £100,000 for the right candidate. The remit was quite challenging for a number of reasons, even so I interviewed a handful of quality candidates, selecting 3 for second interview and we made an offer to the person who was the best fit. I am extremely pleased to say that time has proven that we absolutely made the right choice.
Sue’s professionalism, care and attention to you as a client is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone, especially if you are looking to hire at a senior level where her strength really comes into its own. “

Sue’s approach is to find the right fit, spending valuable time understanding the needs of the business, the department and the role responsibilities, to ensure the right candidates are put forward who have the matching skills, experience and most importantly personality, to fit effectively within the department team. Sue’s integrity and her honest feedback regarding the candidates enables the interview process to be effective and this has assisted in concentrating our time on making positive selections.
I have valued the professional relationship we have grown over the years and the friendship and interest shown in my requirements. I will certainly continue to make Sue Rees my first choice for finance recruitment and I wholly recommend her.
Finance Director – Specialist SME
“We employed the services of Sue Rees Associates when seeking to recruit a Finance Manager to join our team. We were impressed with Sue’s approach throughout the process. She took time to understand our company, our team ethic and the reality of the role before providing details of candidates whom she felt would potentially match our requirements on all levels.
This attention to detail ensured that the candidates put forward were all of high calibre and in possession of the requisite skills and experience. Sue had done all the preparation for us and we could then focus our efforts on interviewing and final selection; exactly what we had hoped for and so much more than many other agencies seem able to provide.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sue Rees Associates and feel sure that we will seek Sue’s help again in the future as we expand our team.”
