What do others say about us?

"I can not recommend Alistair highly enough. He is very professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. His support and advice was very useful and extremely valuable especially just before entering an interview. He has an excellent understanding of the industry and was very through in finding out about me and my requirements before providing me with relevant roles that matched my professional and educational background. He also provided me with roles that I wouldn't have usually considered. I would definitely work with Alistair again when looking to make my next career move."

Candidate

"Alistair is without doubt one of the most conscientious and best recruitment professionals around. He diligently takes the time to discuss every aspect of a candidates profile and a prospective employer's needs, doing everything possible to ensure he proposes the right candidate suited to the right position. He is an asset to work with for both candidate and future employer alike."

Candidate

"Helpful, available, professional and trustworthy. I have no hesitation in recommending as a valuable aid to anyone's job search."

Candidate

"Alistair takes great interest and care in your professional background and also works to understand your personality and how you will best fit at a new employer. He clearly has an excellent understanding of the industry and only contacts about relevant job opportunities where he recognises a clear potential."

Candidate

"I have known Alistair for around two years now, and Alistair is undoubtedly one of the most trustworthy and reputable people within the commercial shipping recruitment sector. Alistair is always honest but will listen to what you have to say before giving his helpful opinion, based on his lengthy experience which is second to none. I would certainly recommend Alistair for his professionalism and knowledge to anyone."

Candidate

"I first met Alistair some 5-6 years ago and, when the time came for my next career move recently, he was the first that came to mind. I find Alistair to be objective and fair throughout the whole process. He ensured that we went through - in an extensive manner, both my skills and future goals in order to find a position that would suit me in terms of professional development but also fit my personality. At the same time, an equally important point I should mention is that Waterline Solutions valued the issue of confidentiality, which in our industry is of utmost importance.

I'm delighted to have worked with Alistair and I would strongly recommend Waterline Solutions to anyone looking for a serious professional to assist them in their next career move."

Candidate

"If I am recruiting another team member, Alistair will always be my first port of call. If I am in search of another role for myself, Alistair will be my only port of call. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

Candidate/Client

"From the moment I spoke with Alistair, I instantly understood and felt his desire to work for the client(s). His professional and attentive nature throughout the process ensured I was fully briefed at every stage of the process in order to ensure a successful result. Alistair's commitment certainly shines through and I would not hesitate in working with Alistair again in the future."

Candidate

"Having spoken to recruiters in the industry I must say that none compare to Alistair. His knowledge of the industry and the contacts he has within it are second to none. He strives to place people in the right position/company for them. He is always available and ready to listen/help with anything he can. Alistair recently placed me in my new role, one that is perfect for me. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new role."

Candidate

"What sets Alistair apart is his ability to listen, understand, and challenge his client's requirement, both the spoken and those between the lines, and then to pursue and deliver results on this basis. Sounds simple but is an increasingly rare quality from many recruiters these days. With Alistair you know focus is on finding long-term solutions not meeting monthly targets. Alistair's many years of shipping knowledge provides a superior focus on this market and always delivered with high integrity and a great sense of humour. Will highly recommend Alistair regardless of whether you are recruiting or job-seeking."

Client

"Alistair engages in really extensive communication in order to make sure that you are fully informed and involved in every stage of the recruitment process. Advice, help and support is freely offered, and the result is a feeling much more like a partnership than a recruiter/client relationship. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Alistair and Waterline Solutions."

Candidate

"The knowledge, skills and personal approach to match the 'right' people with the 'right' positions within the shipping industry. Alistair takes time over the personal touch and his integrity to both the recruiter and the recruitee have been clear to see; treating both as individuals with specific requirements rather than just 'numbers'. I can highly recommend working with Alistair and will stay in contact well beyond my placement."

Candidate

"We have worked together numerous times, and when it comes to shipping recruitment there is nobody more knowledgeable. Great understanding, and actually is able to help you think through the best solution for recruitment of a particular role."

Client

"Very approachable and easy to get on with when discussing possible opportunities. Alistair has had a vast amount of experience in the shipping recruitment field and it's clear to see from his professionalism and in depth knowledge of his market and clientele. I'd personally highly recommend Alistair and perhaps our paths will cross in the future."

Candidate

"Perfect contact - creates, maintains trust and integrity achieving excellent results. Thank you and all the best."

Candidate

"Well connected, professional and reliable shipping recruitment agency. Our cooperation in securing me a chartering position was smooth and efficient and the process was ultra-fast."

Candidate

"An excellent, detail oriented and very well organised recruiter with outstanding listening skills and a great knowledge of the Maritime sector. He really takes his clients and candidates very seriously and he is always ready to help them. The most important skill is that he was immediately able to see the match between the requested technical and soft skills for the job."

Candidate

"A conscientious professional who works tirelessly to ensure all his clients get the best from his service. I would not hesitate in dealing with him again in the future."

Candidate

"With his experience and sound knowledge about the industry, Alistair strives to provide the best service organizations seek. His process and homework is logical, to the point and consistent. Alistair, can truly add value to any organization."

Candidate & Client

"Honest, trustworthy, compassionate and not afraid to go the extra mile. Most importantly Alistair LISTENS to the client. I would have no hesitation recommending him as a yardstick for others in his trade to be measured against and I look forward to collaborating with him again in the future."

Candidate

Whether the customer is an applicant or the company, Alistair makes no difference to the service he wishes to provide.
