It was a pleasure to work with Leo from start of my recruitment application to the end of my assignment. He is a highly conscientious recruiter who cares genuinely about candidate. I will recommend to anyone who is looking for new position.
Luca is a true people person, always concerned with customer satisfaction. He always infused positive vibes in our professional relationship, I must say it was a genuine pleasure to work with Luca.
I had the chance to collaborate with Luca on my job placement, from initial interviews to employment contract finalisation.
I was particularly impressed with Luca's ability to make his customer feel special, and place him in the best position for future interviews. His insider knowledge of the brokering/trading industry also proved very helpful on several instances.
Luca would be a huge asset in any high-flying specialised recruitment agency. I strongly recommend him.
Luca is clearly the best! I never had someone like him who helped me out in such a friendly and polite way! Hope that he can make a lot of others as happy as me! Good luck in the future!
Luca, great guy, has been a tremendous help with the search for the right company aligned with my competencies and interests. Good to have had him by my side, providing informal practice runs and definitely gave that extra edge during the application process. Don't think I'll switch companies soon as the job I landed is absolutely awesome, but if I do, better call Luca!
Leo has been the best recruiter I have ever worked with. His charisma really helps to boost your self confidence. He prepares you step-by-step from the beginning until the signing. He is always prepared to make time for you and is great in follow-ups. Thanks to him I found my new adventure.
Thanks to Steve I found the job I was looking for within 1 month. Before meeting him I had been looking for a job for the past 6 months. Not only he is kind but also very professional, I couldn't ask for more. I will always be thankful for the guidance during the recruitment process.
It was great having Leo as a recruiter since he helped me find a job and guided me step by step in the process, also by giving me detail insight to be ready for the interview. Besides being very professional he is very energetic and has a great sense of humour. Should I need to look for another job, I will contact him immediately.
Leo helped me through the entire recruitment process: advises, tips and kindness. He is a real support and team mate, working together to get the best deal. I highly recommend Leo if you look for a new challenging position, he will definitely be a good asset.
I want to thank a lot to Luca for your help and support. I was really impressed by the amount of energy you dedicated to the whole process, so congratulations for your good work.
I had the pleasure to work with Dulce; she was my recruiter and was tasked to introduce me to one of her client.
She is an amazing recruiter with high listening skills.
She very quickly managed to understand my profile along with my needs.
On top of that, Dulce showed great communication skills and was at-all-time available to answer my questions.
Any person looking for a great job would be lucky to have Dulce has a recruiter.

As a hard-working person, he not only knows how to do achieve excellent results but also how to develop relationships. He has outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, ability to handle a difficult discussion and manage time. On top of everything, his optimism and positive attitude always energize the people around her. Great consultant and an asset to any business.
By the time I finished my masters I got lots of messages from recruiters. I had a highly pleasant experience with Dulce and the most help as well. She not only found some excellent job possibilities, but also guided me through every step of the way to be successful and well prepared. If you are searching for a great job, Dulce is the best choice!
Dulce contacted me with a great job position. She explained the requirements and the responsibilities of the position in details. During the whole recruiting process she was very kind, helping and encouraging. Before each of the next steps Dulce called me to prepare me and support me.

Dulce is a very professional consultant. She has found a job for me in less than 2/3 weeks time. She has incredible interpersonal skills plus she has always been extremely available and helpful. I highly recommend Dulce to any employee/employer !
I came across Dulce on my hunt for a new challenge in the Amsterdam area. She assisted me in finding an exciting position and guided me professionally through the whole process. Understanding of my needs, and a great communication with all parties involved, were just some of the elements that characterize her work. I highly recommend working with Dulce.
I am sincerely thankful for the way Leo listened to me and suggested me regarding my job applications. It is indeed a daunting process - this search for a job in a foreign land, and for an expat like me who is not fluent in Dutch, it only becomes more difficult.
Not only Leo is super positive and supportive throughout our conversation but you genuinely got me motivated into the application process and went out of the way in trying to help me find something that suited my needs in the best way possible.
Jorge is a nice and friendly guy that has a lot of passion for what he is doing. He supported me through the whole process and if there was an open question his response was very quick and helpful.
If you ever look for a job I can recommend to get in touch with him and together you will find a good opportunity!
Working with Jorge has been wonderful. He is an enthusiastic, social, and driven employee. I really valued his support during the hiring process. He is not afraid to go the extra mile for you.
Jorge is a professional, proactive and outgoing recruiter, who performs his duties with much dedication. He is also very skilled in establishing strong relationship with both the company and the candidate. Overall, I would highly recommend his services.
I cannot thank enough Luca for his help in changing my career from Mechanical Engineer to Sales Trader. I applied for the role I did not believe to have a chance, but Luca believed in my profile and helped me prepare very well for the interviews, as well as convincing the recruiter I would be a good fit. It all ended up very well, and I'm now doing a job I really wanted to do in a great company.
Mar assisted me with great professionalism and efficiency into job hunting. She has great resources and skills for scanning the market and also an excellent portfolio of clients. I'm glad we cooperated and I strongly recommend her for her future endeavors.
I met Mar some time ago and from the very beginning she showed a high level of professionalism, keeping me informed at all stages of the decision process. I highly recommend her.

Dulce helped me along the way in order to get the job. She is dedicated, enthusiast, helpful and really attentive. She prepared me as well as she could so my interviews would be successful. It was a real pleasure to work together and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a job/new challenge in his career.
Mar is a very professional specialist in her field.
She has extensive knowledge of different companies and right qualifications for it. She assistants me during all the interviews by giving continuous updates and checking on me all the time. She takes her job seriously and therefore I highly recommend Mar for any business requires.
Jorge was extremely involved in my job search, always staying a step ahead and being incredibly motivated. His enthusiasm is contagious and having him on the phone always brings a smile to ones face. He always targeted the right kind of positions for me and opened several doors for my career steps. Thank you for the effort and maybe we will speak soon :)

It has been and still is a great pleasure of having Prescott & Lockwood Associates as my recruiting partner.
Luca has been supporting us since September 2016. Always fullfilling our urgent and DIFFICULT vacancies of trading. It took us a while to find good German, French and Italian Traders in the past. Luca and his team has been able to fullfill 100% these vacancies.
We are extremely satisfied of the way Luca is working for us. He is very sharp, efficient, transparent as well as becoming a friend of the family.
The quality of candidates that we have been receiving from Luca are unique compared to other partners. These candidates are also very motivated to be working for us. Prescott & Lockwood Associates have been introducing our company very passionately and this makes their recruitment process very efficient and succesful.
A pleasure having them on our side.
It's a pleasure having Prescott & Lockwood Associates as our recruitment partner for La Inmobiliaria. Finding solid Real State brokers it is not an easy duty. I had tried several recruitment agencies with no success. They either didn't deliver when it was necessary and when they did, the profile of the candidates were not according to our needs.
Luca is our main contact from PLA, and has been succesfully delivering top Sales Brokers on a no cure no pay basis. He never asked for exclusivity since he relies on his hard and solid work. Since january 2017 we only had been using PLA as our recruitment partner and will continue to do so. If it's not broken, don't fix it.

When my company needed an english speaking Sales Manager in Mexico, PLA took care of business.
I want to thank Steve for taking over our sales vacancies within OVERCOME. We were struggling to find a suitable Sales Manager for our Medical APP Project throughout Mexico and Europe. It took us 2 years to finally get what we were looking for until we were cooperating with Steve (PLA)
Steve made the process very easy delivering high quality candidates and kept us up to date with regular communication. PLA have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and we will look to our new partners PLA to help our business grow in the near future. Thank you again to Steve and the Prescott & Lockwood team!
To whom it may concern,
I needed to hire my first broker for my startup company, in less than a month PLA found it for me. It was probably not an easy task since my company is based in Barcelona, I needed a native speaker in english who was willing to move abroad for this opportunity.
Luca has been very sharp and in the near future when I will be having new hires in the company I will use him again as my recruiting partner. Highly recommended to have Prescott & Lockwood on your side when it's time to find potential candidates to be working for you.
Prescott & Lockwood Associates was a major support by delivering a Project Sales Manager candidate for the South American market. We have been struggling to fill in this specific position, but within a few months everything was settled with the help of PLA.
We highly recommend PLA for any company that is struggling in finding that candidate with the ideal recruitment process.
I am available and happy to discuss should you have any further questions. You can reach me at +52 (222) 249 98 23
