“Having been contacted directly by Kelly regarding a role that maybe of interest, she explored and listened to my current situation and my top 3 must-haves. Instead of just presenting the package available, Kelly explained the role and had a thorough understanding of what the position entailed & the challenges, which helped my decision making. Her communication throughout was beyond my expectation and went above and beyond any previous experiences I have had with recruitment agencies throughout my professional life. My previous experience has been that the approach is purely about filling a vacancy & securing the finders fee rather than what’s best for the employer and candidate. I felt she was truly working for me and not just the potential employer. She matched my skills and experience to the role and subsequently helped negotiate the package and achieve my must-haves, even though I wasn’t actively seeking a new role. Her communication post job offer, acceptance, notice period, start date and beyond has been supportive, honest and reassuring.”

I have worked with Kelly for a number of years now to assist with the recruitment of my office based sales and customer service teams. Initially I’d use a number of agencies on the assumption that I’d see more variety of candidates, however I soon changed this approach and used just Kelly. Kelly took the time to come in and meet me, and not only understand the needs of the business, but also the needs of the individual teams, the dynamic behind them and what skills and attitudes would complement the existing team. Because she understood what I was looking for, I knew that she would put the right candidates in front of me. This saved me so much time as there was no need to read through CV’s and assess suitable candidates, I knew that if Kelly thought they were worth me seeing, then it was worth my time. She would also give me advice in terms of the general recruitment market at the time, salary expectations in the area for similar roles etc, and be honest with me if I was being unrealistic, so she brought a real wealth of information. I would not hesitate in recommending Kelly and her services!
