Testimonials

Cara Witten – HR – Teledyne

After unsuccessfully trying to fill a role ourselves for months through free to advertise job boards, we contacted Claire at Benjamin Edwards and had a great candidate in place in the role within 4 – 5 weeks.

 

Claire provides a professional service and has excellent knowledge of job markets and current candidate salary expectations.

 

After successfully filling our initial role with Benjamin Edwards, we had a requirement for a second role almost immediately. Again, after discussions with Claire we had another great candidate in the role within a matter of weeks.

 

Teledyne Lincoln will certainly look to use Benjamin Edward’s services again for our recruitment in the future .

 

On a personal note, I’ve also had support from Claire when I’ve previously been searching for a new job opportunity for myself, and found Claire to be professional and knowledgeable in this capacity too.

 

Katie Jarvis – Procurement Manager – Aspire

We used Benjamin Edwards to help us recruit the right person for a procurement role within a specialist manufacturing organisation. Claire’s attention to detail, care and professionalism throughout the process was outstanding. We had quite specific requirements for the person we needed to join our team which was no issue for Claire who found us the perfect fit for the role. The candidate, now employee, has been employed for several weeks now and has fitted straight into our culture and way of working and it feels like he has been with us forever.

 

Once the candidate was in situ Claire kept in constant touch to ensure that everything was ok and check on his progress.

 

I would highly recommend Benjamin Edwards if you are looking to recruit as no other agency I have worked with spends as much time ensuring that every parties’ needs are met and the best possible candidate for the role sourced

Recruiting for a Finance Manager

“I recently worked with Claire at Benjamin Edwards when we needed to recruit a Finance Manager due to business expansion. We spent time detailing the vacancy and the type of person we were looking for to fit in with the rest of the team, and Claire was quickly able to suggest a number of candidates for consideration. Most of those put forward were a great match for our business, and I was impressed by how well Claire had understood both our requirement and the candidates she was representing. Following further discussions on the suitability and experience of the individuals concerned, we were quickly able to identify a short-list of candidates for interview, all of which were more than capable of successfully undertaking the role we had available. Thanks to Claire’s input in identifying and selecting candidates, we were able to appoint the most suitable person for our specific role. Based on this success, we will definitely use Benjamin Edwards again in the future.”

 

Debbie Abrams – Chief Exec – Beaumond House

Having never worked with a recruitment agency before I was unsure what to expect.  Benjamin Edwards was recommended to us and Claire was super-efficient and helpful.  The entire process from advert to appointment was handled incredibly well and took the strain from myself with a process that would have been very time consuming. 

Communication with the charity and with the candidates could not have been improved upon. 

 We successfully appointed to the role and have an excellent candidate in post now thanks to Claire and the team.  I have no hesitation in recommending Benjamin Edwards to help with recruitment to your vacancy

Lauren – Commercial Accountant

Claire reached out got in touch with me via LinkedIn about a new role that I could be interested in. It was a step up role that I might not ever have had the confidence to apply for on my own, but from looking at my profile and CV Claire advised that I was in fact exactly the type of candidate the company were looking for!

Claire was friendly and professional throughout the whole process, and also helped me to prepare for my first ever ‘Virtual Interview’. The interview process on the whole was smooth, and Claire was available for all and any questions that I had.

I am now settled in my new role in a fantastic company with great career prospects, an extremely fortunate position during these trying times that I would never have been in if Claire hadn’t found me and reached out. Thank you!
