“CY Partners were a great help from the very start. They contacted me about a role which suited my skillset and put forward my application. Their professional manner and regular updates were superb. After my interview, they kept me up to speed with regular phone calls and emails and handled the employment offer very efficiently and quickly, securing me a role. They then followed up this excellent service by providing all the details and instructions I needed to continue contact with my new employer. I would recommend CY Partners to anyone who is looking to find a role, especially in IT.”
D. Moffitt, PHP Software Engineer, Web Design Company
In November 2012, I registered with CY Partners as I was looking for a new role in the North East. I was contacted by a consultant who was recruiting for a position that he believed matched my own skills.
I decided the role was something I was interested in and followed up with Probier, at which stage he initiated contact for me. CY Partners provided me with all the information I required regarding the package that was on offer. CY Partners arranged interviews for me and also helped me to negotiate my salary and package. Throughout the process I knew that CY Partners was there to assist me and to get answers to any questions I had.
As I was the living in sunny southern Ireland, I had to relocate and they were really able to assist me in as the relocation package on offer was only available once I had started work. This caused some problems for me regarding financing the move. However, CY Partners was able to assist me with the costs of the move until my new employer had reimbursed me.
As you can imagine this was a huge weight off my shoulders at the time, for which I am extremely grateful. I would not hesitate to use CY Partners again when looking for a new role and I would certainly recommend them to others.
C. Grant, Manufacturing Technologist, recruited into Contract Biopharmaceutical Company.
“I signed up with CY Partners, as well as many other agencies and science-specific recruiters, when I graduated from University in June 2012. However, CY Partners set themselves apart immediately as they phoned me back just a few hours after I submitted my CV! They spoke to me for more than an hour, really taking the time to get to know me, discussing everything from the specific details of my skills and experiences to my hopes and aspirations for the future.
There was one role in particular – the one I have now – for which Michael thought I was an ideal candidate, and it sounded like the role would be ideal for me too! It was a few months between first finding out about the job and going for an interview, but during this time CY Partners were extremely helpful - they provided lots of support and great advice, and always let me know as soon as there were any developments. CY Partners always had time for me, and my no-doubt naïve questions, and even if Michael wasn’t available when I called, all my notes were on file so in most cases someone else was able to help me instead.
CY Partners did not merely find me a job, they found me a career, and they really guided me through an uncertain time in my life and a recruitment process that was completely unknown to me. I have already recommended CY Partners to everyone I know who is looking for a career in science and technology-related roles!”
Sales Engineer (Optics), Global Technology Client
"From the very first contact with CY Partners, Michael has shown himself to be an excellent recruitment consultant. He has clearly put in a considerable amount of effort to understand his client and their detailed requirements, and similarly from my – the candidate’s – point of view, has taken the time to understand me and my ambitions and always kept in close contact. The result: an excellent match between opportunity and candidate! Sounds easy? Well it’s not. Having had experience on both sides of the fence (as a candidate and as a recruiting manager), I understand the requirements from both perspectives. Unfortunately, many recruitment specialists don’t hit the mark; Michael and CY Partners most certainly do!”
Chief Technology Officer, High Technology Sector
“I recently worked with Michael on a senior technical and business development role based in the North East, and have been extremely impressed throughout the recruitment process with his thoroughness and professionalism. Michael has consistently shown himself to be a personable and proactive communicator, and has demonstrated a real in-depth understanding of both the R&D/technical function and the chemical's market. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him for any future scientific or technical assignment, and can only add that he has made the recruitment process a real pleasure.”
R&D Director, Chemical Industry
'Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me to be successful for this job.

‘I would like to thank Probier and Dan at CY Partners for the efficient, professional and friendly service they provided when finding me my ‘dream job’ in the pharmaceutical industry. It was obvious at the interview stage that they also enjoyed an extremely good relationship with the company they placed me with and are their preferred supplier for recruitment. The position was not advertised externally so it was only because I was registered with CY Partners that I became aware of it. It is a testament to their hard work and determination that they have managed not only to establish themselves but to thrive during a time of economic hardship in what is a highly competitive market. I wish them continued success for the future’. Steven H, Pharmacist.
