Testimonials for: Employers | Candidates
“I chair a growing charity and needed a new FD / Financial controller. Better Prospects has been known to me for a long time and have always had a very good reputation for service. They listened carefully to the brief I gave them and came up with a couple of first class candidates. Despite the imminent Covid 19 lockdown, I was able to meet up with my preferred candidate and was delighted that she matched my requirements. Having met with her and then obtained good references I was able to hire her just before the lockdown occurred! I am delighted to say that she has fulfilled all my expectations and probably more and has settled into the team brilliantly. Better Prospects handled everything really well and professionally and I will use them again without doubt as we continue to grow.”
“Better Prospects have provided support to us for both temporary and permanent positions at our Head Office. The team takes time to understand our recruitment needs and ensures that candidates are a good fit for our organisation. I certainly value the quality and professionalism Better Prospects have contributed to our recruitment process.”
“Just to say an extra thank you to the temp that came in today to cover on reception, she was brilliant and a pleasure to have as always! Thanks again Jenine.”
“Jenine, I would like to thank you for your continued on going support and service in supplying our business with reliable, temporary staff, often at very short notice. We have grown to know several of the staff over the years which is always a help and whomever you place with us seem professional and courteous, which is invaluable in a service industry. Thanks once again for your first class service and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership over the coming years.”
“Having worked with my secretary for over 15 years and considering the weight of her workload, we needed a competent replacement who was able to “hit the ground running”. Working closely with Liam at Better Prospects, we were able to find exactly the right individual for the position. They have now started here and, as we had hoped, they have slotted very comfortably into the role.
Having given Liam the brief, he immediately understood my requirements and ensured that the people that I got to see were suitable for this environment. His manner was very personable and whilst I single Liam out for particular praise, my experience when dealing with other members of the team was a positive one - they were aware of my requirements and the up-to-date position of the process.
I would have no compunction whatsoever in recommending their services, they made a hard task appear very easy and I am now reaping the rewards of their assistance.”
“We have used Better Prospects for a number of years and in particular the last few years as our company has grown. They have assisted us in finding reliable, professional and high quality staff that wish to develop with the company and contribute to our current and continued success.”
“We use Better Prospects on an ongoing basis to assist in recruitment for a range of roles within our organisation. They work hard to understand our business needs and are able to provide consultative advice regarding the job market. We are always kept up-to-date and informed of the progress and find the level of service to be highly professional.”
“We were recently in a position to require a new staff member.
In the past we have used several recruitment agencies and unfortunately the service we received was not very satisfactory.
One of our customers recommended Better Prospects.
They have used them several times, and as a result their staff retention rates have improved dramatically and as they are a local company we decided to give them a try.
We are very pleased to say we received a very good service from them. The staff were very friendly and approachable and understood exactly the sort of candidates we were looking for.
We are very pleased to say that with their help we have filled the position and several months down the line we are all still happily working together.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Better Prospects to anyone either requiring a job or needing to fill a post.”
“The Charity has recruited through Better Prospects for 15 years. Using Better Prospects has allowed us to recruit local people and many of our staff recruited through Better Prospects are still with us. If a recruit has not been the right fit we have appreciated Better Prospects working with the Charity to re-recruit.”
“Better Prospects have aided us greatly over the last two years to fill administrative positions in our growing business. From vetting candidates to arranging interviews, the process has been swift and harmonious. We are looking forward to working with Better Prospects in the future.”
“As the Headmaster of a very busy school there are often times when we need swift and effective support from a recruitment agency. Better Prospects have given really excellent service in responding to our staffing needs, helping us to fill a number of vacancies at very short notice with quality staff who have met or exceeded our expectations.
I recommend Better Prospects to any school or educational establishment with complex staffing requirements. The speed and efficiency with which they address our needs has been excellent and we are delighted to work with them moving forward into 2015
“Better Prospects has provided a friendly and efficient service and always manage to source high quality candidates.”
“It is actually quite difficult for me to tell you why we chose one candidate over the other. Both were excellent candidates and head and shoulders above everyone else that came for an interview. It is rare for me to be in the position of having to choose between two such excellent candidates and I have to admit that I had difficulty in deciding. I felt both could do the job equally as well.
In the end it came down to a gut feeling. However, I can assure you that if we had two positions open we would have employed the other candidate like a shot as well.”
“I have worked with Better Prospects for the past four years, their calibre of candidates is of a high standard. They are professional and friendly and always keen to fill available roles, with the right person for our company - even within a couple of hours notice! I would recommend Better Prospects to any local employer.”
“Better Prospects is a recruitment agency I would recommend highly. I was introduced to them about a year ago and very quickly from the start, a solid business relationship was established based on honesty, openness and trust. BP listened, took the time to understand how my company was structured and quickly grasped how important it was to find the right person with the right fit as well as possessing the necessary relevant skills and experience. A continual, on-going, two way line of communication exists which is essential for both parties. Although my company is in a niche sector, I nearly always give BP the opportunity to find applicants for vacant posts across the board. They have provided me with some surprisingly good candidates and always work exceptionally hard to meet my demands. Life would be considerably easier for recruiters like me if there were more agencies like Better Prospects around!”
