Mark Cornish. Head of Finance



Evo have been an essential partner for us in providing DBS and reference checks for staff prior to starting work. They have been hugely flexible, proactive and always willing to go the extra mile to get everything sorted.

Ivan Wise. Recruitment Director



Mel truly identifies your requirements and accurately seeks out the right person for the job, which is essential for a specialist agency as Pure PR. Not only does she understand the industry, interviews candidates thoroughly but is an absolute pleasure to work with a unique combinations of integrity, charm and determination. I would definitely recommend Evo Search and Selection.

Cara Ward. Co Founder and Director


Don’t think I could fault this lady in any way whatsoever! I have had jobs in the past where the Payroll Department couldn’t give two hoots about your pay! But not the lovely Mrs Daunton and team. There has been times when I have been stuck and literally Magda has went out her way to help me out.  You don’t get that anywhere!  I know she has a tough job and if I ever have any problems with my pay (once in 2 years and had nothing to do with evo) this lovely lady had it sorted with in 15 minutes. #legend.You know you are in great hands when you receive a 5 minute phone call about holidays that turns into a 15 minute chat about just life in general.  Easy, laid back, extremely lovely. Definitely think she’s like my 5th favourite human ever on this planet.

Just love her to bits #wonderwoman

You me and IT

We’ve been providing IT support for Evo for over 10 years now, and they have always had a no-nonsense approach and a clear vision which fits well with the way we work. We’ve been able to help them roll out their workload to the Cloud and integrate with their clients in a productive and sensible way. At all times Evo have been a pleasure to work with, staying calm and clear-headed in those inevitable moments when an IT man needs his client to take a back seat, and getting fully involved in the discussions and implementation necessary to stay ahead in our constantly evolving technological age.

Bobby Found. Founder and Director


My experience with Evo over the past 20 months has been great. Always friendly and supportive, members of staff are available to speak to at any time. They have vast experience in my field of work which results in me receiving high quality candidates to consider for any vacant roles for which I am recruiting. My relationship with Evo is consistent with all members of Evo staff, I get treated with respect as a client and a professional approach is always undertaken.

Magda is brilliant when dealing with any pay queries on our behalf, really proactive and swift.  She is an absolute diamond, always friendly and happy to deal with any issues you throw her way, guess she's a natural!

LB, Senior Coach, Disability Charity


Jade is always on hand whenever we need help and support. She has the uncanny ability to pick out the needles from the haystacks and continually send the best possible candidates for our job roles on offer. Without a doubt, if Jade wasn’t working with us, our team would be considerably lacking in strength and depth.

NS, Private and Public Regular Giving Manager, National Palliative Care Charity


Take recruitment. Add a dollop of friendliness. Spice it up with professionalism. Bake it in an oven of unbridled desire to get you a job and the result is recruiter who is not only a friend but the solution to your employment issue. Jade goes above and beyond her role specification and her charm whilst working alongside you is one that will leave you with a smile for days to come

I’d like to thank you for helping me find my new role with Oxfam. I have worked with many recruiters over the last 20 years or so, both as an employer and candidate, and I have found you to be one of the best recruiters I've ever worked with.  Thanks again.


JF, New Starter, Sheffield

RD, Long standing worker, Cardiff


I've been in fundraising for quite some time but genuinely I've never worked as a fundraiser for a place that cares so much for their people. Evo have looked after me in both my professional and personal life. 

I've been afforded many opportunities with them and would not be in the position I am in today without Evolution. Thanks to Mike Udalov for not only realising these opportunities but his understanding of my potential.  As a regional face to face manager for one of the leading charities in the U.K., I find myself working very closely with them. My experience with them is warm and friendly but also extremely professional and reliable. I've always found Evolution flexible to deal with, and willing to go that extra mile.

I have always had a brilliant relationship with Tim Browning as my account manager. When Mark Bedford took over the transition was so smooth and he has done an incredible job since he's taken over.  Special mention to Magda and jade in the office, for their supportive work and always brightening up my day!

TM; Regional Fundraising Manager, Overseas Development Charity


I deal with Magda on a regular basis as part of my role as an administrator for a charity. She is always extremely helpful when it comes to queries about processing incentives, pay rises and normal pay! She is very friendly, always willing and ready to help, for example with preventing stock loss and ensuring new starts complete their paperwork in time to be paid.

JE, Fundraising Administrator, Homelessness charity


Since being with Evo. I've felt nothing but supported all the way. When I have needed to speak to them or enquire about my assignment it only took one phone call to friendly support who were always willing to do the best to suit my specific needs efficiently & effectively! They're always super friendly & extremely personable and I've come to the point where I always look forward to calling Evo & can almost guess which member of the team I'm speaking to before they tell me! 

Moving forward, I will have no problems with choosing Evo again. I've never had a problem with receiving pay and always been encouraged by the handling of holiday pay! To top all this off Evo always have great friend’s referral scheme that are competitive and challenging!

Thanks for your support Evolution!

SM, long term staff member, Glasgow


Within his role recruiting for Shelter Birmingham, Mark is well organised, effective and diligent.  Since he has been working with our team we have built a good relationship with one another and he is approachable, professional and funny! Although he does not work directly within our team, he certainly feels like a team member and we enjoy our interactions. I believe Mark always strives to find the best candidates for us and uses his expertise and experience within the field to produce good results.

MN, Homelessness Charity


I have worked with Evo for approximately 5 years, firstly as a manager and now as an operations manager for Shelter. Good recruitment is the life force of any organisation and Evolution certainly deliver on this point. I find there is a professional ease when working with Evolution, they are very professional, dedicated and accountable for results.

In the charity sector recruitment is a paramount and I’m very happy the Evolution are one of our partners this.
