  • Having worked for the same company for 15yrs,looking for a new job was pretty scary. I learned that applying for jobs is now all recruitment agency orientated. I filled in a CV ( which was a first for me) and the perfect job was highlighted to me,so I applied. The response was succesfull and the contact I got from James was brilliant,ringing me in my mobile and keeping me up to date. He showed interest in my progression,and after my initial 1st interview with the company,informed me I was invited back for a 2nd one. I even got a text message wishing me luck! Luckily I got the new job and I am loving my new role. I informed James of my success and then got a card saying congratulations. Thank you James and your company in making a scary situation a very pleasing and rewarding one. - AG - Candidate
  • I was dealing with James in Jan / Feb while looking for a job in the motor industry. I meant to follow up earlier but kept on getting side tracked and I am only getting around to it now. My situation changed just as I was about to take a job in Stoke but I asked James to forward his managers name so I could pass on my gratitude. As you will be aware once I got my name on to the job sites I was contacted by numerous agencies offering me roles and interviews. However the only person out of about 7 agencies to keep in touch, correctly qualify me, give me feedback and genuinely show any real interest was James. He is a true professional who has a friendly and warm manner and an ability to identify and communicate on a personal level and it is so hard to get quality staff in this market that I wanted to let you know of my experience. I am sorry you didn't make any commission in my case but again even when I went to ground James kept the same manner and asked me to keep in touch if I go back to market. Because of James your company would be my first stop and I wish him the best in his career. With thanks - AF- Candidate
  • I found the area manager to be very helpful, and what I liked the most was when he called me just prior to my interview just to make sure I was prepared, his communication since has been excellent, ensuring everything was in order to the end. Well done. - GA - Candidate
  • I was dealing with Mary and she was great. She introduced me to jobs that I had actually said I was looking for and kept me updated all the time. I went for 2 job interviews and I am now currently In my new role and loving it and if it wasn't for the support of Mary and the team I may not have found it. Also when Mary was annual leave I was dealing with Hannah and she was also fantastic so it shows they have a great team. I contacted another recruitment agency before progress recruitment that sent me jobs that were not relevant to what I asked for and they did not return my calls so it was great to find progress recruitment. - HS - Candidate
  • Ben is an assest to this agency! This is the first time using an agency in looking for a job and I couldn't have made a better choice. Ben has been absolutely amazing and really atentive to exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much in helping me find a new adventure. - JP - Candidate
  • Thank you very much to Progress Recruitment and more specifically to Sasha who helped secure my position within a top and established company. Right from the first point of registration, Sasha worked very hard to put me in contact with the perfect company for my long term career. Sasha supported me through application and interview process. Even with a disappointing first interview, Sasha stayed positive and advised me on how to improve going forward. With my confidence high, today I was offered the job. This is a big occasion, not just for myself, but for my family. Thank you so much Sasha and Thank you Progress. I will certainly recommend you to all possible candidates and even business contacts looking to recruit. - NJ - Candidate

  • I have had an effective and productive business relationship with Ms Laura Jacobs for a period in excess of 3 years. During that time I, in my role of Group Human Resources Manager, found Ms Jacobs to be an excellent business partner who added substantial value to our recruitment and outplacement processes. Examples of this included the identification and pre-assessment of recruitment candidates to fit with our particular brand and Company ethos, and the outplacement support for employees during tactical downsizing projects. As such, I would have no hesitation in recommending Ms Jacobs to you and would fully expect her to meet and surpass any standards and targets set. - LF - HR Manager

  • "The level of service I had from Laura was excellent. I had worked with a number of agencies before discovering Laura and once I gave her the opportunity, she had by far the highest success rate in placing candidates with my company. Laura quickly gained an understanding of my requirements and took the time to understand how my business operated. I was personally very busy and often got bombarded by recruitment companies. Laura understood how busy I was and didn't bombard me with calls. This led my company to have a long standing relationship with Laura and she was always the first person I contacted when I had a recruitment need.” - MB - Managing Director
