“I have worked with Ben through Acuity Associates on a number of Acuity’s recent assignments. Acuity identifies start-up and growing businesses in need of finance bandwidth on a short or medium term basis, and works to quickly understand business requirements and place associates within those businesses to deliver real measurable value to clients. Ben has developed The Acuity Method™ as an assessment method to validate the technical competencies of associates. I was put through the paces of this assessment and it is an excellent and challenging assessment across a range of technical competencies. Ben works very hard on behalf of Acuity’s associates and through an excellent contact network is able to source high quality clients.

I have very much benefited from working with Acuity and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ben’s professionalism to others.”

“I approached Acuity shortly after moving to London where I had taken a temporary position through an agency to facilitate the move. As the London market is very competitive, and I was looking for a part-time role with some flexibility to accommodate my external commitments, I was struggling to find a suitable position taking the usual, Recruitment Agency route, where I would feel like part of the team rather than “the temp”.

The Acuity Method enabled me to differentiate myself in the market because my unique skillsets had been validated in a highly practical way. I felt that Ben and the team had a good understanding of what I was not looking for as well as what I was looking for.

I found a great match with the first employer they introduced me to. The employer had a much greater understanding of my skills than in most interviews I have attended and immediately took me on in an interim placement. Despite working part-time and on a short-term contract initially I immediately felt part of the team. My interim contract was extended and later turned into a permanent position. Almost three years later I am still working for the same company in a role which is varied and challenging while remaining flexible.

Acuity were responsive, proactive and understood the skillset required by the business and also what was important to me. I believe this enabled them to find the right match for me and the company in the shortest timeframe. I would be happy to recommend The Acuity Method to anyone looking for a new role who wants to be matched with an employer who shares their values and provides the environment for a mutually beneficial ongoing relationship.”
