Very professional, has a lot of knowledge in the aircraft business. Very polite. I personally rate Ian as one of the best recruitment consultants there is.

I would recommend Ian as a recruiter as he has in depth knowledge of his subject. His integrity is beyond question and he has the ability to think laterally to provide solutions to recruitment issues.

I had the pleasure of working with Ian during his time at Air Arabia. I found him to be very helpful and knowledgeable whilst searching for potential candidates within Engineering. Ian has a can-do attitude and was a pleasure to work with and I know he will be a success with his passion to succeed.

I have known Ian for several years and have always been impressed by his drive to achieve results. In fact Ian has become a great personal friend. However, this is complementary to the way in which he supported me and the company I worked for. He is very much a team player and has always treated his clients as the customer and worked hard to give them what they want. I would have no hesitation in using the services that Ian can provide and would be comfortable in the knowledge that the results he delivers will be beneficial in all areas within any operation. In the periods I have known Ian, it was his understanding of the aviation industry that made me feel comfortable that I was dealing with someone who understood the client’s needs.

Ian has shown himself to be a true professional and a top level recruiter, giving good feedback in a prompt and timely manner. He was able to answer detailed questions precisely and within a very short time-frame with all arrangements completed correctly and punctually. The contract was set up in a very short time period, and it was a great pleasure to work with Ian on this, and I look forward to any future dealings with him.

It is my pleasure to recommend Ian Carpenter for his performance working as a Talent Acquisition, Compensation & Benefits Manager for Air Arabia and without a doubt he will be of a great value to any company that will utilize his services. I have known Ian for two years in my capacity as the Head of Corporate Security for Air Arabia. Ian worked with me on various projects and demonstrated on numerous occasions to be both open minded and resourceful when it came to new ideas and processes for the benefit of Air Arabia. Ian distinguished himself with fullest of dedication when it came to his assignments and even with the high work load on his shoulders he managed to deliver exceptional work in a timely manner with relaxed attitude. Finally, Ian has excellent analytical and communication skills that are really a great asset in his line of work. 

I have used Ian on various occasions to help me recruit for key roles within my organisations, I am always happy with the approach Ian takes and he has never failed to provide, a quality service with integrity. Ian is very much result driven and I would strongly recommend his services to anyone looking to recruit.

When Ian first arrived, he quickly identified the shortcomings of the Talent Acquisition team which resulted in him re-structuring the department to utilise individual strengths and quickly created a ‘team ethos.’ He further invested time in mentoring the team and recruited individuals to fully compliment the very busy department. Being responsible for the training of new Cabin Crew, I witnessed the results and improvement in terms of quality and quantity of new joiners that arrived. Additionally, I had the opportunity to attend an overseas recruitment campaign for external cabin crew and learned a lot from his experience, from initial planning to final selection. In my opinion, “a good manager is a person that mentors and coaches’ individuals to create a strong team and enhance others careers.” Ian has a natural ability to get the best out of people. These skills contribute to a successful department and happy workforce (even when pushed to the limit!) Ian was obviously truly valued by his team as it’s the first time that I have witnessed employees being so sad just because their manager had decided to leave. I understand Ian has been re-employed by his previous employers. This speaks volumes as he is a true professional with a wealth of experience that will sadly be missed by many at Air Arabia.

I have known Ian for over 25 years and worked with him on various occasions. Ian is a highly dynamic, hands on Manager with a natural flair for sales. He is knowledgeable, has a great sense of humour and a passion for customer service. Ian would clearly be an asset to any organisation and I would not hesitate in recommending him.

I have known Ian both as a candidate and a colleague (he recruited me for Air Arabia and then later joined as the Head of Talent Acquisition and Comps/Bens.) I have found him to be thoroughly professional in both instances. At Air Arabia he was under quite a lot of pressure to fill roles in time periods, which in my opinion were unrealistic. However, he remained objective, frequently achieving the impossible deadlines without compromising quality. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Ian is highly respected by all his co-workers, clients and candidates for his willingness to help anyone, anytime he can. He is very organized, diligent, easily reachable, and has a solid understanding of what makes a successful recruitment company. As a new employee, I have enormous respect for his teaching and leadership skills and I will always hold him in the highest esteem.
