Client Recommendations

"Luke Thomas is simply the most responsive and effective recruiter that I've found in the Netherlands. He actually understands the skills and traits that AKQA require and does much more that simply pattern match required acronyms to those found in candidate CVs (unlike some other recruiters I've come across!) I have no hesitation in recommending Luke to any agency requiring access to quality candidates."

"Luke took great care to find the job that best matched my ambitions. He is a dedicated, very friendly professional with a good understanding of the Dutch IT labour market. He is a great resource for both employers and candidates."

"You will find that Luke is not like working with other recruiters. He is very passionate about his job, personable and cares that he delivers. He likes to build the relationship so you feel that it is more of a partnership than you are a client. He has an excellent understanding of our needs and only provides candidates that are suitable, filtering out the candidates that would be a waste of our time. The most important quality Luke possesses in my opinion is that he does not constantly harass with emails / phone calls. His amount of communication is perfect. He is not like other recruiters who insistently cold call."

"Luke's genuine passion for recruitment and professional approach is clearly reflected in his success in the industry. During my time being managed by Luke he was able able to develop me into a strong, consultative and relationship focused recruiter. He is always striving to find innovative ways to separate himself and the teams he manages from the competition; but mainly achieves through simply investing more face time with clients and candidate than anybody else I worked under."


"Right of the bat Luke understood what we we're looking for in a candidate. He asked the right questions and was able to find the perfect match instantly. Will definitely be working with Luke in the future."

"Luke works exclusively on behalf of LBI Lost Boys to help fill our permanent recruitment needs. Over the last 6 months since starting the relationship Luke has personally placed 4 people within our organisation. The profiles that we provided to Luke were not easy tasks yet somehow the quality, speed and efficiency of the recruitment has been first class. Luke is highly professional yet likes to have a personal relationship with his clients. He has been to our offices a number of times to build on the relationship and make sure everything is working out well. We continue to use Luke and would recommend his services to other potential customers"
