I have recently dealt with Sarah as I searched for a new role in the pensions industry. Despite the current global crisis surrounding Covid-19, Sarah managed to find me an ideal role at a market leading organisation. She was very friendly and professional throughout the whole process and I will be forever grateful for her help.
I have worked with John and his team for about 18 years. They take the time to understand the brief and what we are looking for in terms of fit, character, attitude etc. They don’t just “dump” CVs and they always seem to understand their candidates rather than having just found them on LinkedIn! We have recruited successfully with a John in many occasions and I trust him and his colleagues.
John is no ordinary recruiter, he makes every effort to understand both the role and the candidate. His approach is refreshing. This makes for a better service for both the recruiter and candidate. As a recruiter, John has always been incredibly reliable in providing the right candidates for the roles I’m trying to fill even when the role is not a standard accounting role. As a candidate I’ve always felt that John had my best interests at heart, he would only ever put me forward for the righ
Phill has been of great help over the past few years, from time to time helping find candidates at very short notice. Phil has helped in a broader role than "just a recruiter" in helping guide us with wider advice.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Danielle as she is highly professional but also very down to earth. Danielle is very supportive and always keeps you informed as to what is happening. I have recommended her to colleagues just like I was given her details. Word of mouth says a lot about about an individual especially when it is all very good!
