“I have worked with Sarah Everett at Lab Solutions for several years. During this time, Sarah has successfully placed quality candidates with us and displayed a clear understanding of our business requirements. I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah or lab Solutions for your recruitment needs and look forward to working with them again in the future.”

HR Manager


We are very happy with Lab Solutions Recruitment and have a very good working relationship with Sarah Everett in particular.

We have been using Lab Solutions since 2009 and intend to continue using them for the foreseeable future.
We have found Sarah to be highly competent and the candidates she puts forward are relevant to our roles.  We have both interviewed and employed candidates from Lab Solutions and have found the process to be easy and the candidates to be “as advertised”!
We find Lab Solutions to be friendly and professional – we do not have a separate HR department so I balance recruitment with the rest of my role and I find Sarah does not waste my time pushing unsuitable candidates or unnecessary updates and has obviously taken on board our requirements.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lab Solutions.

Commercial Manager


Laboratory Solutions have provided an excellent service, they have a vested interest in their candidates and this shows in the way they continue to provide assistance after they have been placed in employment.  Nothing is too much trouble for them, they do their up most to help with any queries and always treat you with courtesy, respect and dignity.  A recruitment consultancy that cares as much about its candidates as its clients, very refreshing.

Team Executive


We highly recommend Lab Solutions as being professional, diligent and extremely competent recruitment consultants. They have helped us find the right candidate for numerous roles and at all levels.

Matthew really takes the time to get to know his clients and puts forward candidates that are well suited in terms of both skills and personality.

 As a company we would certainly recommend using Lab Solutions to help realise recruitment needs in the scientific sector.

 HR Manager


Matthew is great to work with .He listens and works on understanding your needs. He does not send irrelevant CVs or encourage you to interview a vast array of candidates. He just provides carefully picked candidates that are perfect in fit and qualifications.Then he works hard to reach a conclusion that fits both sides.
Thank you Matthew.



I would highly recommend working with Matthew. He has filled a substantial number of our roles – many of which were not easy to fill, but he never gave up on any of these positions (as in my experience, frustratingly, many other agents do).

He has a down to earth and fun approach. He always takes time to understand your needs (both technically and from a team-fit perspective) and thinks long term: can the candidate do the job, are they a team fit and are they going to stay long term.

The main difference between Lab-Sol and other Agencies is that they are not focused on Sales quotas or monthly bonuses (like many other Recruitment Agencies)  - so Matt’s not pushing candidates in order to get his end quarter bonus – and rather therefore is  focused on the real job at hand: finding the right candidate.

Global HR


Matthew and Sarah opened my eyes to a world of recruitment that works.  With a close interaction in the initial stages to identify the core attributes required in the position, Lab-Sol creates a clear picture of who is needed.  Lab-Sol is relentless in providing a strong set of candidates, and they always show a personal understanding of the candidates' motivations.  They will continue to hone the requirements with the hiring manager’s feedback.  From the candidates I have brought into my team on temporary contracts, they have all transferred to permanent contracts within the company.  A testament to the hard work by Lab-Sol to match candidates to the right role.
