Past client experience

I just want to say. This has been the most respectful and caring recruitment agency I have ever dealt with so far. Very helpful and well presented and any information that was provided was very accurate. The person at hand I dealt with was very well presented and very professional. They helped me get my current job as quick as possible and I would deal with them anytime.
Pleasant and swift experience
I was personally hired through SJ's services last year in pairing me with the amazing company I now work for. They were fantastic in connecting me and pushing me through to the interview stage where I found a role I absolutely love but wouldn't have considered without their guidance. Since then having been there over a year and now hiring for the company myself - they were very quick in finding brilliant candidates for the role with a turnover of finding someone we wanted to offer the role and them accepting in less than 2 weeks.Very quick communication, excellent candidates put forward and efficient turn around time in references checked and contracts ready. Couldn't recommend Susannah and Sarah more highly. We will continue using them in the future for any staff and contract needs.
Susannah and Sarah were so wonderful and understanding. They worked so hard with getting me an interview and subsequent appointment at my new job. I am so happy.
