Caroline – Grounded HR

Philippa provided great advice regarding where to advertise a specialist vacancy.  She placed the advert in multiple locations seamlessly.  She handled the initial screening and only sent the job pack to candidates that met the person specification.  Thank you for making getting a good candidate so simple.


Tracey – Practical People

In December one of my clients asked me to help them with the recruitment of a Sales Administration vacancy.

I conducted 30 minute telephone interviews with six candidates from the CV’s Philippa had sent me and my client then interviewed five via zoom with my support. They were very impressed with the quality of candidates and couldn’t believe it only cost them £250 for advertising the role.

The new person is starting on a salary of £17,000. If they’d have gone to an agency they would have paid at least a 10% fee which would have been £1,700.

I will continue to use Philippa and her team and would like to say a BIG thank you for some outstanding customer service which is also great value for money.

Sophie, Curtis Contract Furniture

Equals One are extremely easy to work with. They are very responsive and we always feel the applicants we receive meet our criteria. We would thoroughly recommend them.

Director, Mystery Eyes Ltd

“We are a small company and the Equals One approach to recruitment enabled us to reach the right candidates at a low cost.  It was also incredibly efficient with Equals One taking on the time consuming admin, freeing us up to progress our recruitment.  We are very impressed with the service provided and will use Equals One in future and also recommend them to other businesses”



Martin Port – CEO, BigChange

BigChange is a technology business which has grown in the last 5 years.  Currently employing 60 people and is ranked by Deloitte as the 25th fastest growing technology company in the UK.  During the next 5 years BigChange will grow to £40m sales and will operate in the UK, Continental Europe and the US.  Equals One has worked with BigChange for a number of years helping provide candidates and is key to BigChange recruitment plans, which will see the headcount reach in excess of 200 people by 2022.


Equals One and BigChange have a close working relationship and Martin Port said “having known Philippa Goldstone for over 40 years, she is incredible to work with, has lots of experience in the corporate world prior to her move into this new area supporting businesses with their recruitment”.


Equals One fixed fee recruitment services has proven to be hugely successful and finding key people is very important to the future success of BigChange.  Unlike traditional recruitment companies who charge a % of salary, Equals One is a fixed fee model and there are no unforeseen costs.


The synergy between BigChange and Equals One is a perfect fit given their growth within the technology industry.



Chris Lightfoot (Partner @ Co-ownership Solutions LLP and Managing Director of Futurelight Ltd)

“Where do I go to source the best people for the role I need to fill? Which is the best publication in which to place an ad? What day does it come out? Should I use an agency? It costs how much!!!” Questions I have asked when looking to recruit as I guess have many other people. Then I found Equals One, a professional service that hits all the right spots by providing quality candidates at a very competitive fixed price. I will never worry again! I have no hesitation in recommending Philippa at Equals One to anyone who is looking to recruit and have already done so to other colleagues. Give them a try. You won’t be disappointed.




We have used Equals One for a number of roles and have found their attention to detail, prompt response and professional attitude to be second to none. The fixed fee structure allows me to control our recruitment costs, whilst the broad reach they have, results in a good selection of applicants who are well matched to the advertised role. I will continue to use them in the future, no doubt with the same excellent results.

Carl – PQS Survey Ltd

Equals One offered to help in the recruitment of our new hire.  Their highly knowledgeable and systematic approach ensured that on the same day our job description was prepared and the position advertised.  We reviewed the cv’s received, interviewed and within a two week timeframe, a new member joined our team in the role of office administration assistant.

Equals One were absolutely brilliant throughout the entire process and our new recruit is a highly valuable addition to our team.  Having historically recruited all our staff members ourselves, I would without exception call Equals One every time and leave them to help us find our new team members.

I would happily recommend Equals One to all, you would be in extremely safe hands.

Matthew – Clarke Plumbing

Clarke Plumbing and Heating Services cover all aspects of plumbing and heating work across West Yorkshire.  We pride ourselves on our high standards of work and professionalism.

The key to keeping our reputation as a well-respected firm is down to our selection process in choosing new members of staff and we are always on the lookout for new talent.

I recently had the opportunity of using the services of Equals One Ltd as they offered a flat fee recruitment service. I am pleased to say that I was hugely impressed by the service they provided, it was a very fast and efficient service with transparent pricing so no hidden costs.

Equals One’s attention to detail and care was very impressive and the job advertisement they placed for us reached a large amount of candidates, enabling us to select the ideal candidate for our exact requirements.

The work and support of Equals One’s team was nothing less than outstanding and I would happily refer contacts to them every time.


We have worked with Philippa and the team at Equals One for over 5 years and have received excellent service.

Their understanding of our business needs and culture of our organisation enables them to provide us with the right applicants.

From assessment of the assignment to appointing the new team member/s, Philippa facilitated the process, proposing an excellent choice of qualified candidates, to enable us to make a well informed and capable choice.

It is always a pleasure working with Equals One whom I found to be professional and reliable.


I would not hesitate in recommending Equals One.

Samantha -Money Village


The quality of service offered by Equals One is fantastic. If I need to recruit for our company Equals One is our first port of call, the application screening is invaluable and means we only receive applications that suit our criteria.  Thank you Equals One for everything and we look forward to working with you again.



Lorraine, Colour Heroes Ltd

We just wanted to write and say that you have done it again! We have received an
excellent response to the advert you helped to craft for us. The candidates
have been exceptionally talented and your selection process has helped me to
find two very suitable candidates who will bring a wealth of experience and
have a positive impact on our business. The flat fee you charge takes the
‘sting’ out of the tail of finding a candidate and I feel sorry for the traditional
recruitment companies who call me on a weekly basis as they have no chance of
winning our business. Many thanks for being our ‘in-house’ recruitment

Matt – UK Workspace Ltd

“We have used Equals One for a number of years and found the service to be: Professional, Cost Effective, Efficient and Easy. As a small business we feel uneasy paying recruitment agency fees and this service suits our needs well. We have recruited at all levels using this service and every recruit is still with the business. It is as simple as writing a job spec, sending one email and wait for the applications to come flooding in.”
