After all, we are real people dealing with career-changing and life-shaping opportunities. We want the same positive experience for our clients and candidates as we would expect for ourselves when recruiting or looking for a new job.

I find myself writing this email to let you know what a fantastic colleague you have in Alec Hemstead. I have just been awarded a job at Crowngate in Worcester as Operations Manager; Alec has been a consummate professional all the way throughout the application process and in the run up to both interview stages. He is an asset to your company and very much a caring and conscientious individual and it has been a great pleasure working and communicating with him. I would like to know that Alec will get some recognition of the back of my email, due to his professionalism and I will have no concerns recommending your company to other candidates our other employers looking for a recruitment agency. What a credit to your company this young man is, he doesn't know that I am sending you this email, but I felt that I had to make you aware of what a star Alec is.

Very little I can say that wouldn’t be overwhelmingly obvious from the very first time you meet Alex. She continues to over-deliver with genuine warmth, desire and an abundance of ability. It’s been nothing but a pleasure to work with Alex and I can always rely on her for her knowledge, her honesty and - importantly - her integrity. Feel very comfortable to be guided and advised on changes needed to job specs, to listen to recommendations for interview and to trust Alex on salary ranges for roles. And to top it all off, she’s great fun to have a chat with - over the phone or face to face. An all-round star, thanks Alex!
