"After coming back from a year of travelling I decided to seek employment. I was introduced to Jo through a staffing agency. Over the next 6 months Jo worked with me to find a variety of contractual positions to help fund me until I decided to travel again. On my return I came directly to Jo to discuss finding me work on a direct hire basis. We openly discussed what was best for me and drew from her experience in pointing me in the right direction. I started working for the company and I am still employed after 5 years. Through this time, whilst I was on a temporary contract for 2 years, I received continued and ever present support of Jo and won the agencies national employee of the year award. Since joining on a permanent basis I have won sales newcomer of the year and have now been asked to step up to the role of Manager. A large part of where I am today is due to the advice, openness and uncompromised support of Jo and I will be forever thankful for her efforts."

Joanne recently helped me secure my new job and throughout the process she has been great.
From first approaching to me, to providing interview advice and finally providing me with the offer, she was friendly, professional and reliable at every stage. I would definitely look to use Joanne again in the future and would recommend her to others.

Working with Joanne was a pleasure! Out of the many recruiters I have met she was the only one who showed a genuine interest in finding me a job that matches my set skills. She was there every step of the way, checking how I went in my interviews and after I got the job, how do I find it. She is a real professional and excellent at what she does. I now have a Marketing executive position thanks to her and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a job!
