When Selim approached me to offer sourcing support we were not expecting anything more than the normal, but the company name 'Be Different' certainly reflects the approach. Selim is the most effective recruiter I have worked with. Most agencies can fill roles, but Selim can fill MOST of your roles. Candidates are thoroughly vetted and prepared, and always suitable for the roles they are recommended for.
Senior Recruiter - People Can Fly
I can highly recommend Selim's services. We've worked together on several occasions now, and every time, Selim has been incredibly helpful throughout the recruitment process, and extremely fast to source a candidate. I look forward to working with Selim going forward.
Marketing Director - CI Games
Nick has been a delight to work with and invaluable in the expansion of our team. He has without fail found exceptional candidates and shown exemplary communication and advocacy for both the candidate and the studio. I have always found it easy to talk to Nick, express our needs and wants, and have been thrilled at his unfailing approachability and professionalism. Without him our team would not be as strong as it is, and I look forward to working with him in the future.
Lead Technical Animator - HEXWORKS
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Nick. He's tenacious, efficient, responsive and genuinely nice guy, which makes him a dream to work with. He is very communicative and goes above and beyond. I can't recommend him enough if you are looking for new career opportunities or if you are trying to recruit top talent.

Here are some kind words from candidates we've placed:
Nick is hands down the best recruiter I've ever worked with. It's not because he cares, or is always on time, or has great relationships with the top companies in my field - he is all those things for sure. It's because he has such great attention to detail - your details, the job details, the company details, interview details. Recruiters I've worked with before have come off as lazy, busy, or sloppy - any time they miss something your trust and your confidence in them erodes. That has never happened with Nick - he gets it right every time, and every time I work with him my confidence grows, as he never seems to stop paying attention to those details. All that and a great sense of humor too!
Lead Technical Animator
Nick so embodies his company name-sake and corporate / human ethos (Be Different). He doesn't fill roles, he builds and fosters relationships and helps to put together World Class teams. I have worked with Nick on both sides of the fence, at once a candidate and then as a client looking for candidates, and I can honestly say Nick is a true professional, constantly going above and beyond expectations and always willing to listen, rather than tell you what you want or need. In Short a real gem.
Selim is not only one of the most helpful and supportive recruiters I've worked with, but tops the list of empathetic individuals I've ever met. He cuts through the copy-paste cold-call noise often found in modern recruiting - and is quick to meet and understand where you are as a professional and as a person. No pressure, high effort, ultimately caring - Selim's one-on-ones repeatedly throughout the process were essential debriefs that I hope other recruiters can take lessons from. Despite multiple opportunities that could have taken me outside of Selim's purview, he always wanted best for me.
The way Selim works as a recruiter is something I have never seen before! He is friendly, open in his communication, and caring for you not only as a professional but as an individual. He strives to understand what your career goals are, find the right match, ensure smooth and clear communication all through the process. Having the support of a genuinely nice person in the stressful times of arranging a new job was exactly what I needed, and Selim delivered at max power!

I recently got an amazing job through Selim and he was a pleasure to work with. I've dealt with numerous recruiters and he is by far the most communicative and dedicated placement professional I've met in my career. He really understood how to present my particular skillset to his client and got a great result for all parties. He's also a great person and someone who knows his business very well. I'll certainly be recommending him and his team to colleagues in the future.

Can't recommend Sam enough! His help, expertise, guidance and encouragement proved to be an absolutely crucial part of my recruitment process. A true professional and a very honest and friendly person, who's guaranteed to support his client's every effort with his honesty and precious advice. Thanks for everything you've done for me, man. I owe you one!

I've had with Daniel the best experience I ever had with a recruiter. After more than 20 years travelling through different studios this means a lot to me. Since he approached me he's been keeping in touch every day until I signed my offer. He is caring for real, honest and a great person. I really felt that his priority was for me to find a place that I'd really like. I had no doubt about it. After all the process, I'm not only happy that I will start in a new position, I'm also happy that I met him. Thank you for everything Dan.

Hannah was one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with. She was direct, very communicative, and was very willing to advocate for my current needs. I couldn't recommend her enough if you want a smooth process getting into a new job :)
