I particularly like that my consultant, Claire, has taken the time to fully understand our business and culture, this in turn means candidates that closely match our expectations and a streamlined process. Consult are always me first port of call!

  • Having worked with numerous recruitment agencies and talent acquisition companies over the years, I’ve built an appreciation for what makes a truly effective recruitment partner. I’ve worked with Consult Search and Selection for over ten years and have always appreciated the amount of work that they put into understanding the requirements of the role and consequently, the candidates they put forward. I’ve found this focus to be combined with energy, pace and good ongoing communication which makes the whole process pleasant, professional and effective.

  • I have spoken with recruitment agencies in the past and found them to be very helpful, but found this to be by far the best experience with the service exceeding my expectations due vastly to Kayleigh's approach and hard work. Kayleigh was so easy to get hold of, she knew who I was every time she answered the phone without me even telling her, and why I was calling! Kayleigh even offered for me to call her while she was away on her hen do if I needed anything. Of course I would not have but for her to offer appeared far beyond the call of duty and very kind. Her manner was excellent throughout the entire process and I enjoyed talking and "working" with her. Kayleigh also worked very hard to obtain the interview for me initially, even though the interview process had already began and my experience in the area was limited in some parts. She also offered great support in preparation for the interview by looking over resources I had prepared and offering very useful feedback and insight. Communication channels were kept open continuously, with information being fed back within a very quick timeframe, and she has even text since to wish me luck on my first day. I would rate the service that Kayleigh provided as outstanding, making the entire experience a positive one.
