what our fantastic clients think of us

Over the course of the last 20 years, we have been fortunate to partner with some incredible organisations, assisting them in sourcing the brightest, most talented people for their organisations. Many of our relationships are longstanding partnerships, which is where we add the greatest value.


If there’s been one energy business taking the market by storm it’s been First Utility and Cactus have partnered them on more than 1 occasion, to source candidates for some terrifically challenging posts.

Some of the roles Cactus Search have successfully recruited include:

  • Head of Digital Service Delivery
  • Contact Centre Manager – Customer Services

ACE Insurance Group sought to relocate a diverse team, delivering one of their key product areas, from Kingston-Upon-Thames to Glasgow. Cactus was engaged by ACE to ensure the timely and successful recruitment of a new team of 53, covering 14 different roles, including: Customer Relations, Customer Services, Retentions, Quality Monitoring, FOS Liaison, Claims & Administration. 

“Another day and yet more offers to go out. Fantastic work so far and we have a very happy Ops team in Glasgow. Well done Frontline, you are smashing it out the park! - EMEA Head of Resourcing

The campaign was successfully completed in only 5 weeks. Now considered as a valued recruitment partner, Cactus Frontline have engaged with ACE (now Chubb Ltd) in a variety of projects and in March 2016 Chubb approached Frontline to assist with another large campaign (circa 46 hires) to resource multi-lingual skills within their customer service & credit control teams.

“I wanted to say how pleased I am at the result and congratulate you on these first multi lingual hires for us in Glasgow. Thanks to you and Nicki for your efforts. The business is impressed that we have been able to source these positions and dare I say, a little bit surprised! - Head of Resourcing, EMEA
