​Invaluable support for your next bright career step.



Having recently left her previous job, our candidate uploaded her CV to several job boards in search of work. We recognised that her extensive customer-facing experience, most recently in a busy surgery, was an excellent fit for a Receptionist role at a youth charity who had exclusively partnered with us for this vacancy.



This role appealed to our candidate as it was an ideal match for her skillset and was a short walking commute. We spoke to her prior to interview in order to identify effective examples she could provide to highlight her experience, and reassured her in the face of pre-interview nerves. Our long-standing relationship with the client allowed us to advise her on the team she would be working with and how the organisation operates.



Our candidate was offered the role and started in post within 10 days of us first approaching. Initially a 1-month contract, the client extended the role by 2 months and was so impressed by her performance that they offered a promotion to the permanent role of Senior Receptionist. The success of this placement has resulted in a significant career step for our candidate within a profession she enjoys.


“I cannot praise Sam more, he was absolutely amazing and supportive during my job search and interview process. He is the utmost professional with a human touch to everything he does - caring, patient, motivating and encouraging! Thank you so much for making this process so seamless. From the first phone call, Sam was friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. Every word of advice and reassurance was appreciated and helpful – seems so capable of offering a helping hand, making the process feel warm and encouraging. The support was invaluable and I can’t recommend enough working with Sam to find that next bright career step.”
