One of the key challenges in our business environment is to recruit and develop skilled technical staff with appropriate qualifications and professional experience relevant to our field of specialization. In this respect, we rely on specialist global recruitment companies who understand the market and have extensive networks within the industry. Our policy is to work closely with a select few such recruiters and to develop close working relationships with them.


Ably Resources, based in Glasgow, Scotland, is one of our recruiters of choice. Part of the Denholm Group, Ably have proven themselves to be a reliable partner in our efforts to fulfill our mission.

Interserve Defence

Ably have been supporting Interserve (Defence) Ltd with our resourcing solutions for some time now, and I have been personally dealing with them for the past 8 months. In that time I have found their partnership approach refreshing. They are quick to provide support (without being pushy) and have developed a good understanding of our business and requirements, and are always able to provide a good variety of candidates for selection.

G3 Systems

G3 systems work in the construction and logistic solutions sector fulfilling defence, oil industry and humanitarian aid contracts, at times in remote, dangerous and inhospitable regions.  Finding staff with the correct skills sets, experience and survivability to fulfil our commitments can be extremely difficult.

From our first contact with Ably Resources it became clear they fully understood our needs and worked hard to provide candidates suitable for our requirements.  Candidates were well briefed by Ably prior to interview ensuring a smooth interview process, even when requested at short notice.  The standard of the candidates work on site has been exemplary, a testament to the candidate selection process and Ably’s knowledge of our standards and requirements.

Having worked together Ably have now become our first choice for recruitment in what is a very competitive market.  Their staff are honest, knowledgeable and remain flexible to our needs providing the requested resources within timeline we set. 

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ably to any company and look forward to a long working relationship with them in the future.

I find the services I received from Ably first class in the way they respond to our requirements and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any Internation Oil Company or Agent – First class!”

Paul Cuff
Business Development Manager

Turner Facilities Management

From June 2008 to December 2008, I had the pleasure of working alongside Bryan and his Team at Ably Resources.

In my role as Operations Manager, I faced many challenges in sourcing competent candidates – often with short lead times, to support our overseas contracts.  Within a very short space of time, Bryan understood our business requirements and worked diligently in sourcing ‘the right candidates’ for our business.

Bryan was professional at all times and had a very pleasant disposition.  His enthusiasm was infectious and his sense of humour was refreshing, in his endeavours to pursue what often seemed ‘an impossible task’.  From a customer’s perspective, he was committed to satisfying our needs and was always willing to ‘go the extra mile’ in terms of service expectation and service delivery. 

In summation, it was a great comfort to know that I had the support and commitment of Bryan and his Team and Ably Resources.  I am sure he is a valuable asset to the business and I wish him continued success in his role with Ably Resources.

Having worked with Ami on numerous occasions to find some key executive people for our organisation, I have found Ami the most helpful and professional person that I have come in contact with, in this field. Agencies and recruitment companies can be quite forceful but I have found Ami very professional and a great asset to her employer. I have recommended Ami and Ably Resources to many other companies as Ably Resources really know what they are doing and they do it very well.

I would just like to say that I first started communicating with Yvonne Christmas Week 2008 and have been extremely impressed by her professionalism, mannerism and focus. I am registered with several other Agencies and have never experienced the level of communication, both by telephone/e-mail that I am receiving from Yvonne. She truly listens to what you are saying and that to me is rare when dealing with Recruitment Consultants, most have their own agenda.

I have held managerial positions within Sales and if I were in a similar role again, I would love to have a person like Yvonne who is customer service focused ,attentive and very much a people person as a member of my team.

One last thing I attended an interview whilst feeling unwell and the only reason I saw fit to attend, was the fact that I did not want to let Yvonne down. That is my testimony as to how I rate her service on my behalf.

Take good care of this member of staff, as good hard working employees are hard to come by.

Yours Faithfully

“I worked with Eliza on a role I was applying for withi the learning and development sector. As a recruitment L&D specialist I look for consultants who look outside, over and above a 'job spec', questioning the clients 'needs' and challenging them when the consultant knows that they can get more. This Eliza has done and more. Eliza is a hard working consultant who provided exceptional service to me as a candidate resulting in putting me in front of a client who through the original job spec would not have considered me. I highly recommend any candidate to work with Eliza”
